Star Wars Breakdown (Part 1) – Anyway, That’s All I Got

star wars

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters this weekend, so we decided to revisit each and every Star Wars movie, including the strange, misfit TV movies history has tried to erase. We didnโ€™t want to force (no pun intended) every single installment into one episode, so for part 1 of our discussion we review everything from the very first movie up through the prequel trilogy. Our discussion has plenty of surprises and hot takes (mostly from Jason), and we hope you enjoy listening!

Question for you: What do you think of any of the movies we talked about today (especially the Ewok movies and the Holiday Special)?

Hosted by Sam Noland, Jason Read, and Anthony Battaglia!

  1. I really love that you guys didn’t just hate on the prequels, you actually provided some deep insight into the bad AND the good. I actually learned something. Keep it up!

    • Thanks so much! Weโ€™re glad you liked it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Attack of the Clones is the worst of the prequels, I won’t hear any different. Great discussion, ataggers.

    • Thanks, Poe! May the force be with you ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Can’t wait for Part 2! I even listened to this episode a second time. I really appreciated the discussion, it was just different a bit more interesting than when fanboys talk about SW. Just my two cents.

    • Thanks Bill! We really strive to look at things from a fair, balanced, or at least different point of view, and Iโ€™m elated to hear that you liked it!

  4. I knew we were in good hands when Sam got us with that Holiday Special.

    • I knew I had to turn that transition into a fun gag ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for listening!

  5. You guys sound smart more than occasionally.

    • Thanks so much! Weโ€™re really glad you enjoy what we put out ๐Ÿ™‚
