Anyone watch The Mandalorian pilot?

 

Felt like the first episode lacked any real meat, almost like it was a proof of concept episode (it was the pilot after all) and it was a bit short but it was still enjoyable. It also looks fantastic, the production quality of the show is top notch.

 

Yeah, the positives from the first episode are that it looked absolutely gorgeous, there were tons of little nods and references for the Star Wars fan, and it's always great watching Werner Herzog chew the scenery.

 

But at the same time, it almost completely lacked plot or characterization. Hopefully those will come later!

I think they want to keep The Mandalorian mysterious.  Like the man with no name in the Dollars trilogy.  That’s quite obviously the inspiration for the character, in my opinion.  Much of the episode is a tribute to The dollars trilogy.  The pacing, the side characters who do most of the talking, the music, the western settings.  It fits, because I think they want to live up to Boba Fett, who is an icon because of the mystery surrounding the character.

Episode two is out by the way, episodes will now release weekly on Friday's.

 

Gotta say I'm really digging it but damn are the episodes short so far.

I love the whole franchise, but I am not a fanboy who buys all sh*t with SW and support consumerism. But I watch everything, even the new kiddy sh*tty movies. So sad where it is going... :(

I've not seen the Mandalorian yet, but I was mildly disappointed to learn it doesn't star Boba Fett and made canon that he escaped the pit.

So getting Disney+ (mostly to watch the Mandalorian) inspired me to re-watch Revenge of the Sith - I hadn't seen it since it was in Theaters, and I wanted to re-watch the generally recognised 'best' of the prequels to remind myself how they compared to the more recent Disney Star Wars movies.

 

And honestly - the last 45 minutes of RotS is pretty decent. Basically from Order 66 onwards. The final showdown on Mustafar is thrilling, and Ewan MacGregor actually gets some decent lines and can get some acting in. And the other tie-ins to the original trilogy are fine.

 

But the first hour and a half is absolutely God awful! Bad acting, mediocre action, terrible dialog that is 100% exposition and completely unnatural, utterly cringe-inducing 'humour' - it's 90 minutes of filmmaking with zero finesse and zero subtlety.

I thought 'The Force Awakens' was pretty blah, and hated 'The Last Jedi' - but both were at least better-made movies than the first two thirds of RotS. I'm unsure at the moment whether the decent final act pushes it back above those two, but it's definitely close.

 

While I decide on that, would probably rank as follows:

1) ESB

2) ANH

3) ROTJ

4) Rogue One

5) TFA

6) Solo

7/8) TLJ/RotS

9) AotC

10) TPM

 

Too early at the moment to slot in 'The Mandalorian', but my early impressions would be around #5 on the list......

I've not seen Solo, The ManDeLorean (Half Man, Half Time Machine), or the extended universe series so I can't comment on those, but if I was to rank them (of what I've seen)

 

1/2=. The Empire Strikes Back/Return of the Jedi (Empire for story, and cause I'm an FX guy, Jedi makes this equal)

3. A New Hope

3.5. Rogue One (the only decent Disney Star Wars they've done)

4. Revenge of The Sith

5. Attack of the Clones

6. The Phantom Menace

7. Star Wars Holiday Special

8. The Force Awakens

9. The Last Jedi

 

From the trailer I'm already guessing that The Rise of Skywalker will sit in around 8 or 9.

Maybe it's because I'm not a big Star Wars fan, but I actually enjoyed The Last Jedi quite a bit. I also thought Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story were fantastic, loved how dark Rogue One was especially. Rogue One might actually be the best one I've seen, I'm sure that's unpopular but I'd happily rewatch it again.

I’m thinking that’s not just a member of Yoda’s species, but a clone of him.

Well if the rumors I've heard about the test screenings for The Rise of Skywalker are true and they go with (one of the) edits they've tested*... oh boy.

 

The backlash will be spectacular, and Disney (including Kathleen Kennedy and JarJar Abrams) will get everything thrown at them.

 

*Other edits are similar with only slight tweaks.

 

Brief spoiler for those curious


 

Spoiler

 

Palpatine in Return of the Jedi was clone controlled by the real Palpatine.  He's been amassing a new fleet of Star Destroyers with Death Star cannons, one has a double cannon, inside an ice planet, which he activates.  Leia gets killed by Palpatine, ghost Luke and ghost Yoda fight alongside Rey and Kylo to kill Palpatine... this is after he uses the double Death Star cannon star Destroyer to fire on the Falcon killing, Lando, Chewie, R2D2, C3PO and the hopes and dreams of Star Wars fans**.  This winds up Rey who uses Force lighting to disable the entire Empire fleet to be taken out by the Alliance... oh, who are now also aligned with General Hux as Leia negotiated with them.  And the Space Horses apparently are the only thing that can take down the double Cannon Death Star Star Destroyer thing... cause reasons.  So after all this, Rey takes the Skywalker name, hence the title.

 

If this turns out to be true... dumb as f*ck.

 

**Of note, people during the screening of this part of the film, booed and some left in disgust, and this is the bit that remains in at least two edits of the film that have been apparently tested.  So the worst bit of the tests, they've kept in.... dumb as f*ck

Dear god please don't let that be true.

"What can we do that's more menacing than another Death Star or Starkiller?"

"A fleet of Death Stars!"

Yeah.  Super bummed we never got to play that game.

 

PS. Rise of the Skywalker could be legitimately a great movie and large groups of people would still hate it.  There is absolutely nothing that they could release that would appease everyone.  Star Wars fans have become so diverse, everyone expects something different.  I’ve seen people shred the Mandalorian because it’s not what THEY want.  That is the ultimate problem.  Expectations and what people want these movies to be instead of taking them for what they are and expecting nothing.

Finally got around to watching the Mandalorian, and holy sh*t it's incredible. I hate that the episodes are so short, but they just leave me wanting for more because it's all so damn good! I'm so excited for whatever they take it, because it's all so good!

 

This is the way.

Just watched the first three episodes of The Mandalorian and I'm enjoying it so far. A little short, silly and contrived at times (episode two was pure filler in my opinion) but still good. I think I've realised what I hate most about the sequels is that they ruin and crap on everything I enjoyed about the classics, while The Mandalorian (and Rogue One) does not because almost everything is new and unconnected to that. I'm glad they didn't make it about Boba now.

 

Looking forward to the rest of it.

2002's Star Wars : Bounty Hunter not enough for you, then!?!

Actually, I remember that game being a little clunky and very difficult (although almost all games were more difficult back then, it seemed)…...but quite a lot of fun. Obviously not the quality of graphics and gameplay you would get in a game today......

 

 

On the general topic - what makes the Mandalorian great is that it's stripped back and simple. It doesn't (or at least hasn't) overcomplicate(d) the plot, it doesn't introduce hundreds of unnecessary new characters and concepts and it doesn't fill hours and hours of dialog with unnatural exposition (unlike the Disney movies, save Rogue One, and the prequels - all of which are guilty of at least one of those sins). It's (so far) a simple story with enough fun action to keep you entertained, and enough mystery to keep you intrigued.

 

I would just have preferred it if they'd released it as four long episodes rather than eight short ones!

I have a bad feeling this final episode will feel rushed with so much going on. I wonder if they're show the entire cast from previous episodes ala Endgame. At the end credits the screen goes black and all we hear is the crackling sound of Palpatine, leaving some sort of cliffhanger.

Well since JarJar Abrams has trouble writing himself out of his self imposed "Mystery Boxes" wouldn't surprise me.

I swear I did not know about this video being in production (released 1 December) when I made this comment above.

 

I present the best Star Wars since Rogue One (and before that Return of the Jedi)

Am I right in thinking Disney+ hasn't come out in the UK yet? If so, why is this staggered regional release window still a thing? If I'm correct, Disney+ isn't due to be launched until the end of March 2020 over here, and already those areas with the service are four or five episodes deep. I can't move online for images of baby Yoda or stupid sexy Pedro in his Christian Dior Mandalorian armour, and I don't have the biggest of digital footprints. It isn't like I'm actively digging. Sure, I could torrent it like everybody else but it got me wondering why things are even set up this way at all? Surely Disney+ know that having release windows six months apart is bad for business? At this point I don't even care about watching it, I'm just baffled as to why it has to be this way at all.
