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.
