    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – Coffee and Cinema

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – Coffee and Cinema

    CNC007: The Skywalker Saga has ended and Dom Bettinelli and Fr. Chip Hines are here to give you their first impressions, fresh out of the theater. First, some spoiler-free comments and then, after a warning, a spoiled discussion that delves into the universal themes we find here and in all of Star Wars.

    Coffee and Cinema is a part of the Secrets of Movies and TV Shows podcast, that gives you the freshest possible take on a new movie without influence from other reviews, multiple viewings, or any time to process. It’s a raw take on the film. Each episode starts with a spoiler-free overview and then after ample warning, it ends with a spoiled discussion of the plot and events of the movie. Listen to just the first part and come back for the second or wait to listen to the whole thing at once. It’s up to you! Enjoy.
