I have a feeling our next Mythgard Movie Club entry needs no introduction, so I’ll keep things brief: Join us live this Wednesday January 10th at 8:30pm Eastern Time for our panel discussion on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We’ll address this most recent installment’s most pressing questions such as:
- Why is this movie so polarizing?
- What new ideas and approaches has indie writer/director turned blockbuster franchise curator Rian Johnson brought to the conversation?
- What is The Last Jedi’s relationship to its past, both within and outside the fiction?
- How have the returning characters changed or grown, and what do the new characters contribute to the story and the world?
- Why am I allowed to be on this panel and can anyone convince me that Star Wars is all that great?
Though not a contrarian by nature I feel that it is my duty to represent the skeptical non-fan and interrogate some of these received pieces of conventional wisdom, so this should be fun.
You can read more about the event here and register to attend this and future meetings of the Mythgard Movie Club here. We hope to see you there! Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that any Porgs will be able to join.
