John (@kesseljunkie) is joined by special guest Tristan Riddell (@TheInsaneRobin) from Nerd Nuptial and Punch It to discuss onscreen portrayals of AI in Star Wars & Science Fiction in general. Are 'droids truly aware? Are they pressed into servitude unfairly? But most importantly...which one is the coolest?
Mike (@mumbles3k) and John (@kesseljunkie) discuss the credits for Solo: A Star Wars Story, their impressions from the most recent trailer, the latest writer to be hired for Star Trek Discovery - who worked on one of the most formative films in John's youth, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers! - & many more behind-the-scenes news items from the world of film.
What are you looking for in a Star Wars director? Mike (@mumbles3k) and John (@kesseljunkie) debate director qualities they think would make for the best fit in Lucasfilm's evolving franchise. How far should they push? Are they bound by structures, or are all bets off since Lucas is no longer in charge?
