Guest commentator Hal Lublin joins us, boldly flying in the face of DJ's explicit advice!


Hal Lublin



  • Starts with DJ saying he wants to keep helping, and ends with DJ revealing their ship was once owned by an arms dealer.


  • It's been a while since Hal was on!
    • Plug for the fantastic SWM Wiki. Shout out to Khai.
  • The quality of Benicio del Toro's acting.
    • Or is his odd behavior within the diegesis?
  • This movie really does subvert our expectations. If this movie is supposed to mirror The Empire Strikes Back, then is DJ supposed to be the Lando? But no, he's only out for himself; in that way he's exactly as he seems.
    • He's not at the beginning of his arc, he just helps Finn and Rose with theirs.
  • Rose quotes Emperor Palpatine: "Do it."
  • BB-8 turning to a life of crime now that he's been accessory to a ship-jacking.
  • What is your equivalent to Rose's Hayesian smelt (in terms of an object you're similarly attached to), and would you trade it to save the galaxy?
  • Mentioned: Razor Ramon (professional wrestler).
  • This movie explores shades of gray. Contrast with Star Wars which is literally and figuratively black and white.
  • The arms dealer's ship, the arms dealership.
  • DJ's experience is that there are no good guys or bad guys. He's both right and wrong at the same time.
  • The hologram could have been a great place for Easter eggs. Mentioned: the space ships from "Firefly", "Star Trek", and Alien.
  • Blue Snaggletooth.
  • Hal can, will, and wants to come back tomorrow.
  • Plug for the 8-DAY-GREEDO hotline.
