Episode 278: Rogue One
There has been an awakening, friends. Can you feel it? It's--wait, that was last year's movie from the Star Wars franchise, The Force Awakens. We already discussed that on Mousterpiece Cinema! This time around, Josh and Gabe (in his penultimate episode of the show) are talking about the first stand-alone film in the SW franchise, Rogue One. They're joined by return guest and critic for The New Republic, Tim Grierson, for a mammoth-size episode all about Rogue One, the diverse cast, the bleak ending of the film, and, of course, That Special Effect. (If you've seen the movie, you know what we mean.) Is this the best Star Wars movie in over 30 years? Is it just the best one in a year? Is it OK for Tim to bad-mouth The Rocketeer in any form or on any podcast? And can you handle a 2-hour episode of the show? Find out now!
