THIS IS A SPOILER-HEAVY EPISODE

Rian Johnson has brought forth his vision for the eighth installment of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The franchise has always been rather divisive but this movie has our fellow fans even more split on the state of the galaxy. What follows is our extensive break-down of the movie, the chances it took, and whether it worked or not. If you haven't seen this movie, please do yourself a favor and take a trip to the theater before listening in on this SPOILER-HEAVY episode of The Space Dragon Podcast. You have been warned!

Summer is finally here which means we're getting hit with all the blockbuster titles a nerd can handle! We cover what we've seen so far, including our mixed opinions on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL 2 and ALIEN: COVENANT, and brace ourselves for the gaming onslaught of E3 announcements and a slew of fall releases. Lee and Keenan also discuss their experiences in the newly revamped and repurposed PREY title, but only one of them finished it. Make sure to stay tuned until the end to find out who and to hear us talk about our favorite games of all time!

 

Other mentions: The Mummy, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Red Dead Redemption, Far Cry 5, Friday the 13th

May 6, 2017

A belated May The Fourth Be With You, folks! We're here this month with all sorts of glimpses into the future of our beloved nerdy franchises. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 may be rocking the box office, but we've got all sorts of footage from future Marvel outings such as THE DEFENDERS, THE RUNAWAYS, INHUMANS, and CLOAK AND DAGGER.

On the silver screen, there are trailers out for THE DARK TOWER, THE MUMMY, and KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE. Time will tell if they will be hits, or fodder for future episodes of the newly revamped MST3K which we are certainly fans of.

As if this wasn't enough of a geek overload, Keenan and Seamus tell us all about their experiences at this years STAR WARS CELEBRATION. Look forward to some footage of their trip to hit the website soon!

Greetings Earthlings, and welcome to another intergalactic episode that's chock full of our insatiable love for X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

APRIL FOOLS!

Sit back, relax, and listen to us gush over the incredible Wolverine/Hugh Jackman love letter, LOGAN. There are a handful of major spoilers, so be warned. Seventeen years in the making, this is the movie our favorite Canadian X-Man deserves. It's so good to have two solid R-rated superhero flicks out now, because VENOM looks like its going to be the next one in line to get the "adult" treatment. In TV news, Keenan and Lee explain to Seamus how IRON FIST was less than stellar and discuss the potential future of the character in the Netflix Marvelverse. To round out the show, we finish up with some talk about how ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD and MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA are great additions to the franchises.

Seriously, what kind of bizarro world is it that an X-Men based movie is better than a Marvel Netflix show?

Mar 6, 2017

This summer looks like it's going to be one hell of a ride! Recently, we've been given brand new looks into Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 and Alien: Covenant, the latter of which also dropped a prologue of sorts that's got us hooked and ready for more. Two ragtag groups of misfits fighting aliens on the big screen? Count us in!

In gaming news, Microsoft plans a reveal date for the Xbox Scorpio in June at E3. Can this new console, coupled with their new, monthly game pass finally get them out from under Sony's console dominance? If that isn't enough to get you reaching for your wallet, 343 announced that split-screen will be returning to the Aliens-inspired franchise, Halo, when it's sixth mainline release drops.

Jan 30, 2017

Welcome to the (kind of) first episode of the year! We've got a lot to talk about this time, and what better way to start it off than with MORE STAR WARS! Keenan and I finally share our thoughts on ROGUE ONE and ponder on the released title for this years installment, THE LAST JEDI. Also, can Legion and Logan reinvigorate the X-Men franchise? Does GODZILLA 2 have some competition with Anne Hathaway's COLOSSAL? Will DC's POWERLESS be better than SUICIDE SQUAD? Probably.

In the gaming world, OVERWATCH is holding a YEAR OF THE ROOSTER event, Keenan talks about his recent completion of FINAL FANTASY XV, and Lee is elated that WATCH DOGS 2 is a massive improvement on its predecessor. Oh, and there's this new system called the NINTENDO SWITCH, but you've probably never heard of it...

Jan 1, 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY! 2016 may have been a "dumpster fire" for a lot of you, but we think the video game industry is on the up and up for 2017. We're here to give you our take on "the state of gaming" and where things are headed for the future. Will nostalgia win over audiences more than innovation? Have people lost interest in VR? What were our biggest disappointments in gaming for the year? Stay tuned for the answers, and keep an eye out on SpaceDragonCast.com for the latest developments for 2017! P.S. there may be some giveaways from Keenan's trip to the Playstation Experience somewhere in there as well...
