The Mandalorian S02E08

The Mandalorian S02E08 is the season 2 finale of this well-received Star Wars streaming TV drama series. It is no exaggeration to proclaim that success of The Mandalorian has ‘saved’ Star Wars fans and has redeemed the franchise in the eyes of many hardcore fans disillusioned with the way the sequel trilogy turned out.

The Mandalorian S02E06

The Mandalorian S02E06 provided Star Wars fans a memorable moment with the proper return of fan-favourite Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison). Entitled “The Tragedy”, The Mandalorian S02E06 certainly telegraphed that the episode would be a difficult one for Mando (Pedro Pascal) as Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) set his plan in motion to capture Grogu.

The Mandalorian S02E04

After the big revelations of the last episode, there were obviously great expectations for The Mandalorian S02E04. But alas, the poor condition of the Razor Crest necessitated yet another diversion from the quest as Mando and the Child re-visited Nevarro for needful repairs. Cue the reunion with Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and even Mando’s former bounty Mythrol (Horatio Sanz), all from the first season.

Rogue One 002

Do we really need movies set in the Star Wars shared universe? Well, if you are Disney and desiring to recoup some of the $4 billion they paid George Lucas for the franchise, then definitely!

Rogue One 001

No familiar ‘legacy’ characters here though, which makes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story a bit of a risk. Not at all, of course, as the zombies will come out in force to have their brains eaten by more fan-service masturbation.

GEEK OUT! FINALLY. STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS [SPOILERS]GEEK OUT! FINALLY. STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS [SPOILERS]

So much to say, too much to unload. Considering the sheer level of hype poured down on this movie, it’s fair to accept that it was never ever going to live up to the hype. I probably need to watch again to absorb all the nuances but basically, what I feel is that The Force Awakens is either a Star Wars reboot or a fan-made tribute or eye candy searching desperately for a story or perhaps all of the above.

GEEK OUT: SO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS IS BASICALLY A REBOOT OF THE ORIGINAL STAR WARS MOVIE?GEEK OUT: SO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS IS BASICALLY A REBOOT OF THE ORIGINAL STAR WARS MOVIE?

Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens

The most anticipated movie of the year has released a new trailer. If I am understanding the implications of what is depicted in this trailer correctly, after the Battle of Endor and the Return of the Jedi, something happened to thwart the actual return of the Jedi because 30 years later, the very idea of the Force is now a myth. Isn’t this the premise of Star Wars: A New Hope? So unlike the numerous books that chronicled post-ROTJ events (which has now been rendered non-Canon by Disney), we are back to square one.

Once more, we have a young adult living on the desert planet looking up to the skies, we have a malevolent force wearing a helmet and we have the threat of the Death Star (see the poster below) – so Star Wars: The Force Awaken is in reality a REBOOT! Sigh. What an alarming and revolting development! Hopefully, I am wrong in my assessment of the trailer. Cuz, even though the visuals are amazing and awe-inspiring, if that is indeed the plot of the new Star Wars movie, then it is going to be a disappointment. Don’t fuck it up, JJ!
