Star Wars insider JC Reifenberg rejoins the show to break down Episode IX. Is this film a proper end to the 42-year storyline of Star Wars. How did JJ Abrams fair in this enormous undertaking? If you remember the critiques about The Last Jedi, this review will surprise you. There is much praise, but also a lot of criticism. This episode discusses all the plusses and minuses and is as comprehensive as any review this podcast has done.
Note: While the recent Star Wars series The Mandalorian does come up during the conversation, this is a review of The Rise of Skywalker. Episode 165 will focus on Season 1 of The Mandalorian.
JC currently works with Kevin Smith on both his latest films and his latest podcasts. He has made 2 short films that pay homage to Star Wars, “Hughes the Force” and “Summer ’78.”
