Screener Squad: Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver

Rebel Moon 2: The Scargiver review


Round 2! Zack Snyder is back with the second part of his sci-fi “epic”, Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver. We last left Kora (Sofia Boutella) and her band of mighty warriors on the titular rebel moon, Veldt. They are welcomed by the thankful villages saving them from the tyrannical empire known as the “Realm”. Kora and Gunnar (Michiel Huisman), grow closer and the rest of the returning cast (Djimon Hounsou, Bae Doona, Staz Nair, Elise Duffy) acclimate to their new home. Yet, evil rises once again as slain villian from part 1, Atticus Noble (Ed Skrein) is resurrected and sets a course of vengeance against Kora and team. This second entry tends to focus more on slow-mo wheat gathering and lazy exposition dumps rather than earned character building or anything new to bring to the genre. As most Snyder films, the last 40 minutes ends up becoming an orgy of laser blasts and slow-mo yelling to wrap up the saga of Kora’s Scargiver. Listen as Wright, Rae, and Neil return to complete the story of Rebel Moon and ponder if this was worth a watch to begin with.

Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.



Lyrae Anderson (Screener Squad)

You can call me Rae. You can also call me a film lover. I’ll watch it all — small screen; big screen, and everything in between. I have attended and worked for Fantastic Fest and South by Southwest for many years. I married a film geek as well. While we don’t agree on everything, we agree on our love of movies.




Neil Anderson (Screener Squad)

I first got hooked on movies when I saw Star Wars at a drive-in theater as a kid. Growing up in a small, rural town meant not having access to a lot of movies. In college, that all changed. I couldn’t get enough. I love it all — flicks, films, movies, and cinema. I still have that wide-eyed wonder of that kid watching movies from the back of a pick-up truck at the drive-in.
