The Weekly Stuff #309 – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Review

Episode Summary

We dive deep with STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, the 9th, worst, and (for now) final episode in the Star Wars cinematic saga.

Episode Notes

Disney’s Star Wars Sequel Trilogy came to a close this week with The Rise of Skywalker,Episode IX in the long-running saga and the final adventure for characters like Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren. And it’s a pretty baffling finale too, built on a terrible script with nonsensical plotting, confusing character motivations, and a collection of the worst and stupidest twists Star Wars has ever seen. The cast is game, John Williams does his thing, and the visuals are occasionally nice, but this is bottom of the barrel for Star Wars – and, if we’re being perfectly honest, a pretty fun movie to rip into for three hours on this podcast. We discuss the film in excruciating detail, and finish out the show by chatting about episodes 6 and 7 of The Mandalorian,which were so spectacular they’re pretty much the exact qualitative polar opposite of Episode IX. 

Enjoy, and come back Wednesday for our 2nd annual Weekly Stuff Christmas Special – which will be a crazy amount of fun!
