    Obi-Wan Kenobi: Episode 6 Review

    Obi-Wan Kenobi: Episode 6 Review

    Reva arrives on Tatooine to locate Luke, while Vader pursues Kenobi and the Path in his Star Destroyer. Kenobi separates from the group so that the Path can escape after realizing Vader is only after him. He goes to a nearby planet to confront Vader alone. After an intense lightsaber and Force duel, Kenobi is able to incapacitate him by damaging Vader's helmet and breathing device. Realizing that Anakin has embraced his identity as Vader, and that his former friend is truly dead, Kenobi leaves. Meanwhile, Reva arrives at Luke's home and confronts Owen and Beru. After subduing them, she pursues Luke into the desert but eventually returns him to his family after remembering Anakin's massacre of the Jedi Temple. Liberated from the Dark Side, Kenobi congratulates her for overcoming her trauma from the past. On Mustafar, a healed Vader abandons his search for Kenobi after his master, Emperor Palpatine, questions his motives and loyalty. Back on Alderaan, Leia has found new resolve in her duties as a princess. Kenobi visits them and affirms he will help the Organas when needed, and bids Leia farewell. Returning to Tatooine, he resolves his conflict with Owen by agreeing to let Luke have a regular childhood. Owen allows Ben to meet Luke, and he greets the boy with his familiar "Hello there", before venturing into the desert. Having found his inner peace, he is finally able to see and converse with the Force Ghost of his old Master, Qui-Gon Jinn.

    Ms. Marvel Season 1 Episode 2

    Kamala begins training to control her powers with Carrelli, with the latter deducing the bangle activated Kamala's superpowers. Kamala, Carrelli, and Nakia Bahadir attend a party organized by Zimmer, where they meet new senior Kamran. Kamala befriends Kamran, but Carrelli becomes frustrated when she chooses to spend time with Kamran instead of training. After seeing a vision of a mysterious woman, Kamala asks her grandmother Sana and Muneeba about Kamala's great-grandmother Aisha, the original owner of the bangle, but both dismiss her. Yusuf says young Sana lost her way during the partition of India, but was able to find her father almost mysteriously. After questioning Zimmer about her savior at AvengerCon, Cleary and Deever order a sweep of the tri-state area, targeting South Asian communities. At an Eid celebration, a young boy slips from a balcony and almost falls before Kamala saves him with her powers. Kamala is chased by DODC agents led by Deever, but is saved by Kamran, who introduces her to his mother.

    Jurassic World: Dominion (2022)

    Four years after the destruction of Isla Nublar, dinosaurs now live--and hunt--alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history's most fearsome creatures in a new Era.
    JJ is confused and disgusted, not just with the movie. Mattson helps JJ keep a running tally. Alec talks conspiracy theories.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi: Episode 5 Review

    Obi-Wan Kenobi: Episode 5 Review

    Tracking Kenobi's location to Jabiim, Vader promotes Reva to Grand Inquisitor. The Empire arrives to besiege the facility, and deactivates the escape doors. To stall for time, Kenobi negotiates with Reva and deduces that she knows Vader's true identity as she witnessed his massacre at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant as a Youngling. She reveals she wanted to gain Vader's favor in order to kill Vader for revenge, rather than serve him. The facility is then breached, with Tala sacrificing herself to save Kenobi. Realizing they cannot win, Kenobi surrenders and is taken to Reva. There, he convinces Reva to kill Vader when she delivers Kenobi to him. Meanwhile, Leia opens the doors after removing Lola's tracker, allowing the Path to escape before Vader besieges the facility. Reva uses this opportunity to attempt to kill Vader, but is quickly overpowered after a brief duel and stabbed. She is left for dead, and the original Grand Inquisitor arrives and reaffirms his status. As the Path network escapes, Reva finds Bail Organa's message on Kenobi's transmitter, revealing Luke's location on Tatooine.

    Kamala Khan is a 16-year-old high schooler and fangirl of the Avengers, particularly Captain Marvel. After failing another driving test and meeting with school counselor Gabe Wilson, Kamala and her best friend Bruno Carrelli finish her Captain Marvel cosplay for "AvengerCon" while avoiding her strict parents, Yusuf and Muneeba. Kamala receives a package of items from her grandmother including a golden bangle, but Muneeba sees it as junk. After failing to convince her parents to let her go to AvengerCon, Kamala and Bruno sneak out and attend anyway, taking the bangle as part of her cosplay. After getting there and dressing up, she puts it on, but it causes her to project constructs of cosmic energy, inadvertently causing havoc. Amidst the chaos, Kamala manages to use her powers to save her classmate Zoe Zimmer from falling. Bruno rushes Kamala home, where a distraught Muneeba pleads with her to focus on her own story and grounds her. In a mid-credits scene, Department of Damage Control (DODC) agents P. Cleary and Sadie Deever watch a video of Kamala's incident at AvengerCon and head to New Jersey to find and detain her.

Like listening to a review from a friend

I’ve been listening to this podcast and watching their YouTube channel for about a year now. Consistently love their feedback, it is not as heavy as a traditional critic’s show and more in line with what a friend or family you trust would give you as far as movie feedback. Really insightful, and the guys are definitely not afraid of debating the merits of a particular film or actor in a very genuine manner yet always with an excellent sense of humor

So many laughs

Stumbled upon this the other day, SOOOOO many laughs! I quite honestly cannot stop giggling, Ian needs to talk more, his calm demeanor really seems to balance out the louder voices (no names, but we all know who that is.) can’t wait to go back and listen to some earlier episodes.

Like the best ever

Super fun podcast. 5s across the board for everyone except Javier. He gets a 2 and a half which is good! Right in the middle of the road.
