"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is out and we are *finally* talking about what we saw and what we thought! (**HEAVY SPOILERS** contained herein, so see the movie first before you watch this episode!)

Adam Thomas, Andy Farnsworth, Tysen Webb and Aaron Zundel are in the "Spoiler Room" in the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theaters at The District to give unfiltered reactions and analysis of the latest Star Wars movie that has almost immediately polarized fans.

In this segment, we discuss the new worlds, species and ships introduced in the movie.  Crait, Canto Bight, Ahch-To, Dreadnoughts, bombers, green milk and, of course...PORGS! Plus, a couple of questions about the ship chase subplot that makes up a chunk of the movie.

He was introduced in "The Amazing Spider-Man" comic book in the 1970's, but the character Frank Castle, aka "The Punisher," and his one-man war on crime have certain garnered their own popularity and following in the years since.

But after three poorly-made and disappointing attempts to bring the character to the big screen since 1989, Netflix recently released a more well-received version of Punisher starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle in the street-level MCU world of "Daredevil" and "The Defenders."

Dec 8, 2017

In this episode, Andy Farnsworth and Aaron Zundel are joined once again by guest comic book expert Josh Leavitt to give a spoiler-free review of Marvel's "The Punisher" series on Netflix.

Jon Bernthal (from "The Walking Dead") stars as Frank Castle, a war veteran who wants revenge on the criminal scum that killed his family, and his brand of justice doesn't include jail, lawyers or courts.  We first met Castle, who calls himself "The Punisher," in season two of "Daredevil" on Netflix, but now Castle is featured in his own (hyper-violent) series.

If you haven't watched the series yet and are on the fence, give us a listen and see if we convince you! 

NOTE: We also have a podcast episode on the history of "The Punisher," both in the comics and on-screen (that DOES contain spoilers) that we recommend you check out as well!
