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.

Catholic Movie Guy Episode 5 – Inside Llewyn Davis

Number 5 is alive!

In this episode, TheTimMan and I take the stage to discuss Inside Llewyn Davis.  The 2013 Coen brothers’ film is superficially about the folk music scene in Greenwich Village in 1961, but really about the struggle between following our own desires or the paths laid before our feet.  Critically acclaimed, with a wonderful performance by Oscar Isaac (pictured above).  Lots of grist for the Catholic mill, too.

Could the Coen brothers have made a genuinely pro-life movie, or are we riffing too much?  Is the cat Llewyn (it is)?  Did my wife like it?  We also touch on the Dante connection,  the genius of Bob Dylan, and various other enlightening themes in the movie.  TheTimMan even gave up his gallbladder to get this thing done, so enjoy!
