This week on the Intermission Podcast, the Movie Guys talk about Star Wars (surprise surprise), pick their celebrities for the 2017 death pool, and Taco Bell’s new heavenly creation the Naked Chicken Chalupa. And some movie stuff, but who cares about that?
Star Wars Talk
Corey’s Star Wars theory: So this week while “working” Corey came up with a theory about the new Star Wars Episode VIII title (The Last Jedi). He says that the force grew tired of all the Skywalker shortcomings and decided to awaken the reliable Kenobi bloodline, i.e Rey, the last Jedi. Her clothes are the same, she has an accent, the even have practically the same name: Rey; Ben. It’s quite obvious that she is a Kenobi and Guy is totally wrong. That’s why Luke was speechless at the end of Episode VII, he was thinking, “Damn, that’s the second time a Kenobi has handed me that lightsaber.”
Corey’s other theory is that Luke will die in Episode VIII. This is of course very likely and everyone agrees it will happen, except Guy. It pisses him off to no end, which is likely why everyone is so gung-ho for the idea. Josh also has a Star Wars theory which pisses Guy off: Finn and Poe are going to hook up in Episode VIII. As you might expect, Guy King would not be happy to see this for reason’s we won’t discuss here (he’s secretly gay and so is very insecure about this issue).
The Death Pool
Last week, Craig came up with a novel idea: a celebrity death pool! Everyone picks ten celebrities that they think will die in 2017, and you know, someone wins or something. We’ve missed a few already, but no matter. Guy and Corey however, were opposed to the idea for some reason, something about voodoo and witches. So the rest of us came up with a few rules and made our picks. Rule one: no killing anyone on your list. Rule two, if two people pick the same celeb, we pick dates and closest wins. Simple.
