    Star Wars: The Mandalorian



    Im impressed. For a TV series it sure has good production values.

    Is it just me, or was anyone else’s thoughts on seeing stormtrooper helmets pierced by sticks to marvel again at how useless their armor is?
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    I await the reviews...

    Hopefully we can finally have the first half decent live action production since 1983.

    Wouldn’t that be a thing.

    I believe the production value for each episode is in the tens of millions.

    Trump does the things that Trump supporters hate and claim not to support, but they don't realize Trump and his people are the ones doing them.

    Would be interesting if Jon Favreau saves and starts an amazing small screen star wars cinematic universe. Just like how he started the MCU w/Iron Man.

    I thought Rogue One was decent enough. My favorite Disney SW movie to date. I enjoyed Solo, too, despite not liking a few weird scenes (like when Han got his name). So was the Force Awakens, but it wasn't exactly original.

    The Last Jedi.....yeesh.

    At first I was alright with the force awakens.

    But ultimately the movies are hollow, they’re as shallow as a puddle for me.

    Rogue One had promise but ultimately the characters didn’t hit the mark, they didn’t really have much going for them and some of the dialogue was so cringe... “rebellions are built on hope”

    Last Jedi was special though, in being just pure unadulterated trash.

    Solo again, pretty hollow, not much really going on.

    And in all these movies, can you honestly point to one moment that you can remember that matches up to some of the best moments of the original trilogy.

    Things like:

    The first appearance of Vader.
    Now Eisley Cantina.
    Death of Ben Kenobi.
    Death Star Trench Rub.
    Hoth Battle.
    Yodas training.
    Luke vs Vader 1
    End of empire with hopeful view of galaxy
    Luke’s reappearance in Return as Jedi badass
    Yadda yadda yadda

    Some scenes try to capture the visuals... but the emotional impact is absent.

    There is speculation and the evidence is interesting that Rise of the Skywalker is gonna try to retcon everything and it’s gonna go full Avengers Endgame and do a time travel in an attempt to fix what Last Jedi broke.

    I could see that happening man and I don’t think it’ll go well.
