The Last Jedi is out today, and whilst that’s the topic of next week’s show, this week we’re gearing up to it by looking at its director, Rian Johnson, and his previous three films.

Jay Cluitt was joined by Richard Kirkham, Chris Staron and Daniel Lackey to discuss Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper, as well as predict what Johnson will possibly do with a Star Wars movie. Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a new game!
