Two epic films released on Friday, December 20th: Star Wars and Cats. This week we take on the herculean task of discussing both movies, and there is a LOT to say about both. Whether you loved it or hated it, odds are you have an opinion on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Or, if you havent seen it yet, maybe skip to after the break when we enter the horror-scape of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s New Nightmare.
If you loved or hated either movie, apologies for pissing you off. Regardless after you finish review bombing your least favorite, consider reviewing us on Apple Podcasts! Please be gentler with us than you were on Rian Johnson, though.
