The Last Jedi (2017)

If you were waiting on the Catholic Movie Guy to make up your mind about the new Star Wars, I have some good news, and some bad news.

The good news is that I loved it as much as anyone; the bad news is that I hated it as much as everyone.

Confused? Listen as Bo Bonner of Iowa Catholic Radio joins me to discuss (with limited nerdiness) the latest (and greatest/worst) Star Wars entry: the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, The Last Jedi.

Podcast Episode 10 – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


Episode 10 has arrived, just in time for Festivus (not to mention Christmas) listening.

On this episode, I am joined by special guest Bo Bonner, Director of Campus Ministry and Assistant Professor at Mercy College of Health Sciences in Des Moines, IA.  Bo is a smart guy, movie buff, and medium-level Star Wars nerd. 

Fear not if you haven’t seen it: we discuss the film and its place in the Star Wars universe spoiler-free for the large majority of the podcast.  Toward the last third or so, after a clear warning, we head into spoiler territory. 

We discuss the moral implications of the film, the religious aspects of the force in the movie, the excellent action sequences, and why it’s a worthy addition to the Star Wars canon.

Merry Christmas to all!
