Today on GeekFest Rants, Carlos looks at both sides of the Star Wars fandom coin, the positive fan gatherings like Star Wars Celebration and the flip side with the ugly newer toxic fandom incidents.  This non traditional Star Wars fan behavior seems to have been gathering steam most recently with the new Disney/Lucasfilm films like The Force Awakens and culminating with The Last Jedi and Solo.

Instead of traditional thoughtful story and character analysis we now have a new wave of hatred towards this franchise rooted in racism, sexism, and general intolerance.  What's at the root of this behavior?  And, can we ever get back to the open, inclusive, safe environment that Star Wars has always been?

From there we head into At The Movies where we take a look at a couple of different movies. The 1st one is called Hotel Artemis and the 2nd is the horror flick everyone is talking about, Hereditary. I saw it and I'll tell you all about it or at least what I thought of it.

Then it's on to the main event of the show where we take a look at something we all have at least a passing interest in, Dinosaurs. With Jurassic World on the way I thought this was the perfect time for some Dinosaur Talk! Dinos are great and this week I spend about half of an hour breaking down the Top Five Dinosaurs Of All The Times and Space.

We finish off the show with some toy talk and some flea market talk. Oh ya, there is a really long story about littering. After you listen let me know what you think.. I'm curious. Hit me up HERE!!!
