  1. Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson & The Go! Team | Maximum Fun

    Show: Bullseye

    Guests: Rian Johnson, Ian Parton, Nkechi Ka Egenamba aka Ninja

    Director Rian Johnson on ‘The Last Jedi’ and working with Carrie Fisher on her last film

    The force is strong with this week’s guest! Writer and director of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Rian Johnson joins us in the studio to talk about making the blockbuster and putting himself in the head of characters like Luke Skywalker to write a compelling story.

    Rian Johnson first broke through as a writer and director with 2005’s "Brick." It’s kind of a Coen brothers inspired film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is set in an Orange County suburb, and it’s sort of a neo-noir where most of the main characters are high school students. The tone of the film is eerie and dark, the dialogue is quick and snappy, and most important of all — it’s a great detective story.

    Before "Brick," he was an editor for the creepy cult film "May," released in 2002. Other writing and directing credits include the sci-fi thriller "Looper," and the heist film comedy "The Brothers Bloom." He also directed a few of the most memorable Breaking Bad episodes.

    When Rian sat down with Jesse they spoke extensively about "The Last Jedi." Including what it was like working with Carrie Fisher on her last film, how he received the offer to direct "The Last Jedi,"

    and why he thought it was important that "Star Wars" be funny.

    This segment will include some spoilers to the film, but honestly, if you haven’t seen "The Last Jedi" by now you are practically asking for spoilers. You have been warned!

    Ian Parton & Ninja of The Go! Team on their new album ‘Semicircle’

    Jesse talks with Ian Parton and Ninja of The Go! Team. They’re the band that made the Bullseye theme song —

    "Huddle Formation."

    Formed in the year 2000 in Brighton, England, the band’s basically the brainchild of Ian Parton. He recorded a lot of the band’s first record in his parent’s kitchen and released it as "Thunder, Lightning, Strike." A classic Go! Team track has a lot of influences: hip hop, marching band music, noise rock, 70s soul. A lot of the songs are sample based but they still sound live and fresh. One of Ian’s longest running collaborators is the MC Ninja, born Nkechi Ka Egenamba. She’s sung and rapped on every Go! Team record.

    Ian tells Jesse about his creative process, and what it was like writing the smash hit "Roudou Sanka" by Japanese pop group Momoiro Clover Z. Ninja discusses what it was like when she first heard The Go! Team, and how she brings the music to life on stage.

    The Go! Team will be touring this Spring, and their new album "Semicircle" will be released on January 19. For more information visit their website.

    The Outshot: Sylvester

    Finally, for this week’s Outshot: singer-songwriter Sylvester. Jesse tells us about the life of a disco, rhythm and blues, and soul singer with a fabulous stage presence. "Mighty Real" was Sylvester’s signature hit. The song was about

    authenticity. It’s hard to imagine him bringing anything but realness.

  5. Not Playing with Lex and Dan | Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode 3.8)

    The circle is now complete. We conclude our viewing of the Star Wars saga—for now, anyway—with the most recent installment in the main sequence of movies. Grizzled smuggler Dan Moren teams up with desert scavenger Lex Friedman to take in the spectacle that is 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    Hot topics include Kylo Ren as a Vader wannabe, how to get just the right amount of C-3PO, and, of course, the fact that Supreme Leader Snoke is a dumb name.

    Programming Note: In addition to this capsule episode, which contains our discussion before and after the film, members can watch along with Lex and Dan in a full-length commentary track, available in the members-only First Class feed. If you’re not already a member, why not sign up? And if you are, now’s a great time to update your membership allocations and maybe throw a little support in the direction of Not Playing. Thanks!

  6. Not Playing with Lex and Dan | Return of the Jedi (Episode 3.7)

    In our penultimate episode, we close out the original trilogy with the movie that began a sixteen year hiatus of the Star Wars franchise. Lovable Ewok Dan Moren leads rebel commando Lex Friedman through the 1983 version of Return of the Jedi.

    Hot topics include distracting alien effects, much ado about Admiral Ackbar’s famous line, what the heck the deal with Force ghosts is, and, of course, whether the film is a Vader apologia.

  7. Not Playing with Lex and Dan | The Empire Strikes Back (Episode 3.6)

    We return to season 3 of Not Playing with the rare sequel that arguably surpasses its predecessor—at least as far as one of our panelists is concerned. Roguish smuggler Lex Friedman puts his trust in card player, gambler, and scoundrel Dan Moren to lead him through the 1980 masterpiece The Empire Strikes Back.

    Hot topics include the most awkward dinner ever, disconcerting tauntaun animations, and, of course, why puppet Yoda is better than CGI Yoda.
