Well, Mandalorian was pretty good again. I didn't know Clancy Brown was going to be in it, so super nice surprise.

Set design was good. It was a break someone out of jail episode...but it was done well.


Rehashing old episodic western stories but giving them the Star Wars dressing actually is pretty fun. As crap as Disney Wars has been, I'm fine with this maybe never telling anything beyond the pair drifting around making a living in the universe. It can be fucked up but if there's not a lot of story beyond that, I don't see it even having to interact with anything beyond its own bubble. That may keep it safe for a while from the SJW shit. Sort of like how Netflix Marvel did minus Jessica Jones.

It is also nice that by Episode 6 we have already seen more classic aliens and new aliens than all of the ST.

Anyways, I think it was the best episode so far.

Enjoy the Gungan joke.
Pretty much what I've been saying. The show should ditch the whole larger narrative bs like the First Order origin story and just make it a father/son episodic western that doesn't try to connect itself to anything and just focuses on its own world and character arcs rather than the fate of the greater galaxy or tying them in with more important characters. Also in terms of setting, this episode I think is an example of one of those weirder episodes that doesn't know where it stands in continuity (although this time around it seems to have more favor with Disney shit...). Disgustingly enough they reference Canto Blight from TLJ (member TLJ?! Yeah it still happened!) instead of referencing a gambling den people actually like, like Nar Shaddaa or Cloud City or just make up something on the spot. They also show the same creepy six armed monkey from Solo (member Solo?! That still happened to!). But then they go and mention Alzoc III, the old homeworld of the Talz which was retconned out of existence by Filoni Wars and Disney and the Talz homeworld was changed to some ice moon, but now its their homeworld again. The New Republic is pretty much on point with how it used to be. Twi'leks are lewd again. Devaronians are both intimidating and intelligent with red skin instead of green again. But then there's that Zero droid who looks like he's supposed to be an RA-7 but comes off as sort of chinese knockoff like the one in RO.

Despite the references to crap like TLJ, the plot was still very much what one should want and expect from old SW, aliens, action and good sets, and it was better than previous episodes but not as good as episode 2, but the show should just stop referencing the new films (also stay the fuck away from Wendig and Marvel shit) and just focus on itself ffs. But we know that's not gonna happen and they still intend to do the FO crap. And no, I didn't pay or watch it on their shitty Disney+ service.
@damian mind sharing the new episode so everyone else can watch and review?

Hopefully the TLJ and Solo references are just there to keep LF somewhat off their backs. On Canto Blight would be interesting if they have to visit it, Favreau and Filoni completely reskin and repopulate it into a proper hive of scum and villainy just to fuck with KK and Ruin.
It would be so much easier if they just went away.

It's like how can I even entertain getting invested in Star Wars again while those two chucklefucks still cling to it? JUST GO HOME.

EDIT: @GeneralFriendliness At this point I'm even disillusioned with Filoni, the golden child of Lucasfilm who everyone wants to be the new studio head. I don't want that guy. He buttfucked the EU with his OC fanfics. Sure, they made the Prequels more palatable to a wider audience, but he could've done that without destroying the carefully crafted universe of books, games and comics up until that point, nevermind the fact that Genndy did better with a handful of animated shorts. As much as I enjoyed Clone Wars and Rebels (mostly because it felt like ANH), Filoni's not an ideal leader or replacement. Like George, ironically, he needed somebody to tell him, "No." Maybe that someone is Kevin Feige or Jon Favreau, but unfortunately they weren't around from 2008 to 2012.

I think the best way I can sum it up is that you're given a really nice cake (Mandalorian episode 6), it looks pretty tasty and smells really sweet, and I'm sure everyone at the party (all parts of the fandom) will enjoy it, but then you find out it came from that bakery downtown (Lucasfilm) that used to be really good but then it fell under new management and the quality of the cakes began to vary heavily, and now there's even rumors of a rat infestation (Disney), but the cake looks so damn good you give the baker the benefit of the doubt and foolishly dismiss the rumors as nothing more than baseless gossip. At the party, everyone starts enjoying the cake, until someone screams out and finds a small tuft of hair or fur embedded inside their cake slice. Then two more find tiny hairs in their cake slices. In reality, there's only 3 little strands of hairs in one large delicious cake, and the truth is they're actually the baker's own hair and not rat hair and that the cake is not diseased, but there's no way you could know that unknowable truth or what the baker's intentions were, so the thought that there was fucking hair in your cake alone makes you lose your whole damn appetite and question the quality of the whole cake.

On the bright side, the cake is still pretty, nice to look at and it smells very nice.

There's three reasons they keep going after established IPs:
Reason 4: corporate cancer. Studios are lazy and cowardly and won't take the risk of trying to launch an original IP. It's "better" for an exec to inject poisonous twitter noise into a popular property, watch it lose money and die, then blame Nazis and Russian trolls, than assume responsibility for anything.

There's a bunch of cameos in the episode. The New Republic soldier was played by the guy who voiced Anakin in TCW, Filoni, Chow and the director of this episode were the 3 X-wing pilots.
I liked the Twi'lek girl, I don't know if it was the intent but her behavior reminded me of Chiana from Farscape.
I find it quite intriguing that the New Republic would use droids for the security. I wonder if they're used as a replacement for the troopers once the rebels hippies in power decided to dismantle the army after RotJ. Since there are no armed droid in TFA, I guess not. It's a shame because it could've been interesting to have a reverse "Prequel" scenario.

There's a few germans on /tv/ and reddit who claim they're planning to see and spoil the film on the 18th, so I'm sure we'll have no shortage of spoilers on the 18th.

Edit:
WAIT! Something new has been added!

The official premiere in LA is on the 16th! Considering that people within Lucasfilm along with friends and family among test screenings spilled the beans, we'll probably get spoilers on the 16th!

If that's the case...

Yeah, but you see what happened to that...and also the entire production company. Dismantled and done away with. No doubt that played a part--it didn't fit with the overall agenda. It WAS only "product" to consume while you eagerly awaited theatrical "product," but I guess wasn't woke enough.

Not to get off topic, but after seeing most of the 23 movies (no Captain Marvelous), and getting to "End Game," left me hollow and pissed off. Like I had listened to a years-long joke and the punchline was stupid.

he did complain about other things in MM 3d but he also made his own texture pack for the N64 games afterwards.
I just find it funny that the same guy who can see MM being taken for a ride and Nintendo fucking up fan-games and emulation suddenly is trying to defend a company that does the same things but on larger scales with their whole "Disney vault" bullshit

Yes! This. So much this. Filoni pisses me off too. Ashoka could've meant something, but instead we have to create new levels of goofy magic universe portals that Doctor Who would've even shied away from, in order to bring her back (because, as is mentioned around here, she is Filoni's personal body pillow for some reason). All just so....we could have more Ashoka.

Rebels was a tiresome slog that went on twice as long as it should've, completely lost its way in the process, got really weird, and in the end I wished I'd never recorded and put the energy into keeping up with it. I say this all the time at home: FOR A MINUTE THERE the series looked like it could go in the direction of being a cautionary tale about turning to the dark side. Space Aladdin was a useless, shallow character--an empty vessel--but for that brief moment where Maul was Wormtongue-ing him into going with him, we got a glimpse of how marvelous everything could've been.

We've never had a story exactly like that, but we could've seen, well, the dark side of turning to the dark side. Space Aladdin becomes Maul's personal apprentice-lite, turns against his friends, final battle ensues. It's not a Vader-level story, but a low-level everyday kid. Coulda been great.

I mean, it's not like they had a specific arc planned for him! Which became brutally apparent in the end.

So this is Exogol...?

Not what I was expecting... And the giant floating cube is a lot more underwhelming than I thought it was. I thought it would be like a square death star floating in the sky, instead it just slightly hovers over the entrance. Does this thing even do anything? None of the leaks even talk about this dumb block as almost everything seems to take place underground. Also does Kylo Ren even need to go through the Omega 4 crap to get to Exogol or what?

Also is it just me or did Rey get flatter?

By the way does anyone know if there's been anything confirming the old leaks about Rey getting Luke's helmet and X-Wing? That seems to be the only old leak yet to be confirmed.

I would've at least enjoyed the first season or 2 of Rebels if they didn't ham it up with all the cameos and references. Every other week it was another OT and Filoni Wars cameo that just made the whole damn galaxy feel like it was the size of a neighborhood. It didn't help how safe it played itself to the point where they main character had to use a fucking slingshot and a stunsaber as weapons when Boba Fett was using blasters before he could crawl. And it still boggles me as to why Disney chose a highly restrained show for ages 7-10 to be the ultimate and most important lynchpin in their new canon. Hell its the only piece of SW media aside from the OT to get referenced in the Disney Trilogy.

I don't like Filoni. He's a hack that doesn't understand the first thing about writing. He dumbed Grievous down from a warrior fighting for revenge who was ultimately betrayed by his employers to a one-dimensional bad guy. He dumbed Dooku down from a dark Jedi who went against the order to try to destroy Palpatine from the inside to a one-dimensional bad guy. He dumbed the Jedi down from inexperienced commanders who poorly conducted the war causing resentment from the more free-thinking clones to tactical fucking geniuses who only occasionally lost battles. He dumbed the clones down from a well-trained genetic super-soldier army of a dubious morality to a bunch of free-thinking soldiers with widely differing personalities avoiding any moral questions about what is essentially an army of slaves. I could go on, but you get the point.

Here you go--this leak came out Wednesday, and has her FLYING the damn thing and calling herself "Red 5" for the love of all that is holy...


The video is all of the JediPaxis summary of the film, and also leaks that are confirmed by the government ratings agency in Sweden! It's very interesting.

I just checked out the JediPaxis leak and something doesn't add up.
He says D-O is found in Ochi's ship and that he belonged to Ochi and was heavily abused, but the official guide for IX along with all other sources say that D-O belongs to Crazy Frog and lives with him on the ice asteroid Kajimi/whatever. I even posted a page from said guide here. Is this bullshit or simply another victim of reshoot changes?

Did anyone else catch Filoni's exceptional in-universe name in the credits?

So even though this isn't technically news, since we've known about Rey returning to Achc-Chew, this bears emphasizing:

It wasn't enough that they gave the Millenium Falcon to Rey on a silver platter in TFA, like 15 minutes into it. It wasn't enough that they gave her Anakin's lightsaber or Kylo's Force training before the first film in the trilogy ended.

Now they're giving her Luke's X-Wing.

Rey is not a character. She exists to be glorified, stan'd, and given things for free.

You know, this just reminded me of something.

The Mandalorian S1 is supposed to be 8 episodes long, yeah? So regardless of when the world gets to see The Cucking of Skywalker, Episode 6 is the last one we'll see before it comes out.

So is the finale of The Mandalorian supposed to apologize for The Ruin of Skywalker by way of Baby Yoda after the fact? Or are the shills just going to point to Baby Yoda trying to heal Dyn and say, "Look, that's a Force power, so you can't say JJ pulled it out of his ass."

Yes! This. So much this. Filoni pisses me off too. Ashoka could've meant something, but instead we have to create new levels of goofy magic universe portals that Doctor Who would've even shied away from, in order to bring her back (because, as is mentioned around here, she is Filoni's personal body pillow for some reason).

The cast of Rebels also dilute the importance of the OT. Suddenly Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan and Yoda aren't the last of the Jedi, and both Kanan and Space Aladdin are much better Jedi than any of them. Even the Rebellion is undercut somewhat by Saw Guerrera, who regarded them as not radical enough. Then the Bendu--the cosmic Tim Pool of Star Wars--comes in and muddles the Force to the point of appealing to Grey Jedi activists, in spite of George's definition of balance: the Light side conquering the Dark. That's how you know that George barely gave a shit at that point, when he just let Filoni do whatever he wanted.

For the love of all that's holy Filoni, enough with the wolf stuff...
This is the kind of stuff you do when you're 14 and feel dishonoured about when you're 24.
