Rian Johnson has brought forth his vision for the eighth installment of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The franchise has always been rather divisive but this movie has our fellow fans even more split on the state of the galaxy. What follows is our extensive break-down of the movie, the chances it took, and whether it worked or not. If you haven’t seen this movie, please do yourself a favor and take a trip to the theater before listening in on this SPOILER-HEAVY episode of The Space Dragon Podcast. You have been warned!

Greetings Earthlings, and welcome to another intergalactic episode that’s chock full of our insatiable love for X-Men Origins: Wolverine!
Sit back, relax, and listen to us gush over the incredible Wolverine/Hugh Jackman love letter, LOGAN. There are a handful of major spoilers, so be warned. Seventeen years in the making, this is the movie our favorite Canadian X-Man deserves. It’s so good to have two solid R-rated superhero flicks out now, because VENOM looks like its going to be the next one in line to get the “adult” treatment. In TV news, Keenan and Lee explain to Seamus how IRON FIST was less than stellar and discuss the potential future of the character in the Netflix Marvelverse. To round out the show, we finish up with some talk about how THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD and MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA are great additions to the franchises.
Seriously, what kind of bizarro world is it that an X-Men based movie is better than a Marvel Netflix show?
SDCC has ended and all the nerds in the world are left with a ton of new information for their respective obsessions. Here’s some of Lee and Keenan’s favorite highlights from the show!
This past weekend we lost actor Anton Yelchin after a freak accident involving the actors car at his Los Angels home. I don’t want to go into too much detail on the actors death, but rather his amazing and short lived acting career.
The first film I ever saw Anton in was Alpha Dogs. A 2006 film starring Justin Timberlake, Bruce Willis and Emile Hirsch. A lot of star power was behind this film, as well as starting Justin’s break away film career. A lot of eyes were on this one and Yelchin was “the missing boy”. Audiences did not realize it just yet, but they were going to fall in love with this kid.
Anton moved onto a few more television rolls before landing the gig that would change his life and put him in the eyes of millions. The pivotal roll that made Walter Koenig famous. Pavel Chekov in JJ Abrams Star Trek! We all were a little weary of this retelling in the Star Trek universe. Especially after seeing the original cast recast. The film went on to be a hit grossing nearly $257,730,019! Anton could not work another day in his life and live off the convention scene. That had to have been a good feeling at his age.
X-MEN: APOCALYPSE (Spoiler Free Review)
So despite my rejection letter to flee to upstate New York, I had to check out X-Men: Apocalypse. The X-Men have always been my favorite Marvel franchise since I could read comics, and Apocalypse is such a pivotal character in the franchise that I really wanted this to be good since the last two X-films were pretty tolerable.
I went in with the lowest expectations from friends and fan reviews…
I must say I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it!
