Star Wars Episode IX Tag

We continue our 2018 Preview as we debate the future of the Star Wars universe with Just 2 Pal’s podcast host Johnny Wellens. We span everything from Rogue One to Last Jedi to episdoe II and rank the worst Star Wars Movie ever.

Why Last Jedi Might Be The Worst Star Wars Movie Ever

Listen in to find out more on this episode of Secrets of the Sire.
Segment 1
Michael and Hassan start discussing The Last Jedi, and debate whether those who disliked the movie should be called “haters”. Then, after discussing whether a podcast should have seasons or episodes, they talk about the movie’s impact on Star Wars fans and critics alike, discussing the polarizing differences in opinion surrounding the film, including the various agendas surrounding people’s love of the movie.

Segment 2
Our hosts discuss Rogue One, and whether it’s really as good a movie as people think it is, and what happens when you view the movie on its own merits away from Star Wars Episode 4. Then, they talk about the upcoming Han Solo movie, why it may save the franchise, and how it’ll give Star Wars fans another glimpse at the Star Wars universe pre-Episode 4. Michael and Hassan also go into what critics have to say about the Hans Solo movie’s lack of a marketing campaign and the movie’s unique appeal within the Star Wars franchise.

Note that this segment has some spoilers for The Last Jedi! After Johnny finishes given his thoughts on The Last Jedi, he gives his opinion on how The Last Jedi will affect the Han Solo movie.

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Tom Wilson (Back To The Future)

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)
His breakthrough role was the bully Biff Tannen in the 1985 film Back to the Future. He returned in the sequels Back to the Future Part II and Part III to reprise not only his role as Biff, but also to play Biff’s grandson Griff Tannen and great-grandfather Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen. His famous catchphrases include: “Hello! Hello! Anybody home? Think, McFly, think!”,[2] “What are you looking at, Butthead?”, “Say hi to your mom for me”, and “Why don’t you make like a tree; and get outta here”. In every Back to the Future film, he always ended up in a pile of manure (in reality, a pile of decayed sphagnum and other plant matters) when trying to kill or hurt Michael J. Fox‘s character Marty McFly. He reprised his role as Biff and voiced various Tannen relatives in the animated series. Wilson did not reprise his role as Biff in the initial versions of Telltale‘s Back to the Future: The Game released in 2011, being replaced by Kid Beyond. When the game was ported to the PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015 in commemoration of the original film’s 30th anniversary, Wilson returned to provide Biff’s voice in these newer versions.
