<em>The Mandalorian</em> - Season One - * <strong>SPOILER THREAD</strong> *
Time

I loved seeing the sandpeople. I don’t think the costumes looked like they were from a convention per se, they’re just too clean and…um…they look like they’ve been ironed. They don’t look lived in.
The biggest problem is rush rush move move. Slow the darn thing down already. That sandpeople scene would have been so much better if it had been drawn out and had a bit more tension. Build it up. Maybe they get sniped at by one and at first they wonder if it’s the bounty shooting or someone else.
The whole ‘‘tell them yourself’’ joke is one of my favorite pieces of recent Star Wars humor.

I generally love the show but the pacing of it is all off, slow it the hell down.

Science Fiction or Space Fantasy - what is Star Wars
Time

It’s a western set in space (which is how it was first described to me before I saw anything other than a trailer).
I had seen a trailer for it before a Peanuts film and wanted to see it, this is before it blew up and it was all word of mouth.
It was playing in my hometown at the theatre the farthest from my home and I couldn’t find anyone to drive me.
About a month after it was released I had lunch with my father, his sister (who my dad took the opinion of very seriously) and my brother. My aunt asked, “Bob, have you taken the boys to see that Star Wars movie yet?” I almost fell off of my chair. An ally! My dad was I think amazed that his sister and seen this, let alone was probably going to endorse it. “No.” She replied, “Oh, you really should. It’s great. And you should go, too. You’d like it, it’s like a western but set in space.”
We went to see it that weekend.

The following contains spoilers from The Mandalorian…

Amazing that, after all those years, the clouds haven’t moved an inch 😉

But i think we should keep any discussion about the Mandalorian eps out of this thread for those that haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.

I am amazed that a double sun parched desert planet has that many clouds at all.

Hey everyone, I accidentally read some spoilers, so I guess I’m here now instead of the no-spoiler thread. Anyway, the stuff I read was pretty crazy, but then I read some other stuff that seemed to conflict it. So…is there anywhere where I can read a summary of the current state of speculation and leaks, instead of sifting through 127 pages?

here you go

Perhaps the Sequel Sequel Trilogy will introduce planet-sized ysalamiri and balance will finally, truly be brought to Force.

No, Rey is going to meet Jedi Knight Bristow and her master Jedi Rimbaldi, who will teach her how to use the Wayfarer device to trap Kylo Ren and her. They will be locked in there for all eternity, bringing balance to the force via their unconsumated attraction to each other.

The Mandalorian : Radical Redux Fan Edit Ideas - <strong>SPOILER THREAD</strong>

I’ve always found that a Tarantino style bounty hunter film would an interesting prospect.

I am pretty much digging the surprise of intergalactic Mr. Mom.
This could have been executed even better if the spacefaring Jawas were the ones that had baby Yodes and he had to board their ship or follow them from planet to planet and intergalactic flea market to flea market to try to get the bounty baby and they’re playing all sorts of devious tricks on him, three card monte type stuff, like which Jawa transport is the baby in? The use of the Jawas in Ep2 was IMO the best use of legacy species that we’ve seen. Really like Nick Nolte as an (adult?) Uganught, too.

<em>The Mandalorian</em> - Season One - * <strong>SPOILER THREAD</strong> *
Time

The best strengths of this show are a) they are not over-explaining things and b) there’s some world building going on.
The weakness is that they are not letting it breathe enough. My opinion is they feel they have to do perceived damage control from the last two movies (not a criticism, I love 'em both) however this would have been improved if they had taken a long hard look at Twin Peaks The Return - give it space and time. Everything I’ve seen so far has been really good, but it has been rushed. Slow it the hell down a bit please.

Worst Ideas in Star Wars/Good Ideas that went Horribly Wrong
Time

One of the prequels problems was that Lucas kept introducing a new “main” villain every movie. What would have been wrong with Darth Maul as the main antagonist for the entire PT?

What’s wrong with Darth Maul is Dooku. They should have gone with Dooku from E1 straight through 3.
I realize that the Empire doesn’t exist yet but Maul as the apprentice runs counter to the xenophobia of the realized Empire and Palpy was the one behind all that so Maul doesn’t make sense at all.

Christopher Lee was a sadly wasted opportunity of quality; instead we were given Grievous in 3 and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom level garbage.

You all do realize that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, etc. are going to, I dunno, get old and die and stuff, right?

All this talk of sidelining OT characters, do you think these people are going to live forever and keep reprising these roles?
'cause three on my list have died already.

If you want more and new Star Wars you’re going to have to make your peace with new characters, new story lines, new actors, new stories.

A New Hope Repossessed
Time

I generally like what you’re doing with Yavin, however the ships in the added scenes need much, much more detail to them and you have to have continuity. If you have one scene with a lot of ships in it and the next scene is one of the pilots of said ships, the next scene pretty much has to follow the first scene for what is populating the background.

I get what you’re trying to do with the end battle over Yavin but there are two problems.

  1. Some of the ships are clearly just blocks.
  2. You cut from one scene where the space represented on the screen has many ships, then in the next scene it has 2-3. What happened to the rest? It’s immediately jarring.

The Mos Eisley scene doesn’t work because the Jedha scene presents a densely populated city with a lot of buildings that are all jammed together. That’s not how the city looks as represented in ANH.
