In this edition of the Geekstrum podcast, we welcome Scott into the strummers fold and also find a way to somehow only talk about a new Star Wars movie for two hours… for the second consecutive pod. Shocking no one at all, Geekstrum is back from a totally planned “hiatus” to bombard you with nonstop rambling about everything from poorly defining pansexual to shinning a light on the upcoming Detective Pikachu film.

In this edition of the Geekstrum podcast, we three dive into the very divisive but ultimately amazing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s long, we ramble, and we bring the hot takes but forgive us if you will… we’re finally talking about Star Wars!
I have to start this review with two statements. This review will be as spoiler free as palatably possible and if you haven’t seen this movie yet, please don’t read any further. If you’re trying to decided whether or not you want to see a Star Wars movie, I don’t think my effusive fanboyish prattling is gonna be what puts you over the edge. And it is precisely the fact that my tone, critical or otherwise, might color your experience before you even park yourself in your local movie theater, that I think you should wait to read this until you’ve seen it. So, if you’ve either met this prior criteria or refuse to take advice, here’s my review of Coco again.
Wait, didn’t we just have a Star Wars movie last year? I’m apparently now old enough to complain to youths about how long I had to wait for new Star Wars the way parents complain to me about not having had the Internet in the ‘40s. Disney, the current proprietors of the Star Wars franchise, are set to give us saga films (read: the ones with those pesky roman numerals) on odd years, and a nice side story film on evens. Market saturation think piece aside, myself and countless nerds across the land have struggled with the all of the sudden nature of a series that has gone through two hibernation periods, 16 years and 10 years respectively. But who cares about my emotional turmoil over what is essentially an embarrassment of riches, you guys just want to know if this movie is worth seeing, and the answer to that is a resounding yes. But I do have some quibbles.
