Writer-director Rian Johnson’s divisive Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) has stirred a lot of controversy but has slightly tipped the scales favorably overall. 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. It’s your MPW crew (minus Andy), as well as three special guests: Mattroid from The Sci-Fi Podcast and We Deal in Lead and Kyle and Kris are Pitchmen; William Rowan Jr., also of The Sci-Fi Podcast; and Star Wars fan and MPW listener, Alan Kennington. At the end of the show, Jay brings you a quick Feature Review of Wonder (2017). Join us!
