But what do your Movie Podcast Weekly hosts think? There seems to be a lot of concern among our listeners regarding MPW’s critical perspective… In Episode 270, we dedicated most of the show to discussing “The Last Jedi.” We begin without revealing any spoilers, and then we provide a warning and a SPOILER section to our Star Wars review.
