    Some will notice, that weapon is an homage to Boba Fett in the “greatest” holiday special ever: The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978.)

    Crazy Uncle George would like to purge this from the Internet. That said, said weapon:

    Although I've enjoyed the series so far, I didn't particularly like this new one (episode 4). Too much of an Endor/Magnificent 7 vibe for me, by which I mean those influences/tropes were too obvious and heavy handed for my tastes... :sigh:


    Although I` d1d le the tease of the title character taking his helmet off :D

    Only redeeming thing was the (Canadian produced) cartoon, had a bit of "Heavy Metal mag" vibe to it...without the T&A of course

    Yeah "Ep4 Sanctuary" was the 1st that wasn't holding my interest, pretty much knew how the entire thing would play out. I kept feeling the urge to skip ahead to the last 10min.

    I think the rule was, "they can never remove their helmets in front of outsiders." Behind closed doors, anything can happen.

    It's decent enough to get me back every week. I guess you can only judge after all eight episodes. Though the 4th was average. Liked Gina Carano turning up. She might not be the best actress around but she can sure kick **** in the previous things I've seen her in.

    '****'? I can't use '****'? Not being able to use '****' is very surprising. Is '****' a bad word? I don't think '****' is a bad word. Who on here is going take offense at '****'? Well, it's not my site. I'll follow the rules and not be an ****.

    Dying to know what this word is. You can spell it with punctuation, you know, or just leave out one letter.

    Yeah, as others have stated, ep4 was a dud. Very cheesy TV-ish. Hopefully that’s an outlier/nadir and the next 4 are much better.

    When the series started, it was being touted as 'darker, 'grittier', etc. But with the arrival of his sidekick, the show instantaneously became a show aimed at a younger age bracket. If you remove all the Star Wars window dressing, it's really a pretty generic, by-the-numbers TV show. That said, while I'm still liking it, it's probably best that it's only 1/2 hour segments. I'd be getting twitchy/bored otherwise!

    A$$? Whenever there have been conversations here about the infamous, gross-out MTV stunt show, I always have to refer to it as Jackazz.

    Meanwhile, the crazy internet fans are going nuts about a mistake in this episode:

    Star Wars: The Mandalorian Left a Boom Mic in Episode 4

    That's sloppy work from somebody, because it's trivial these days to remove boom mics from shots. I do it all the time, even on movies nobody cares about. (We left them in Dolemite because that's kind of the joke, that it's a badly-made movie.) Note that it's very, very hard to see because it's a black mic with a black foam cover against a black background, and at normal contrast levels you can only barely notice it. But it is a mistake, albeit a subtle one.

    Lucas always said that Star Wars was intended as a fantasy story for kids, despite the grim, serious moments in some installments.

    I'm a big fan of Baby Yoda, and I have no problem with them going in this direction.

    Soon there will be a title change to reflect the new star of the show...

    I've despised the two sequel films so far but something about The Mandalorian is just likeable and not badly produced. I've seen the four episodes so far, it's quite good.

    It's not something I'll likely watch over and over again but seeing it in it's episodic form in the present moment is enjoyable.

    I was trying to explain the show to somebody just tonight, and I said, "the interesting thing about The Mandalorian is that it's about small stories, not a huge, grand, sweeping, epic tale about the universe. It's one bounty hunter being surprised by something he was originally paid to kill, and he makes a moral decision to keep it alive."

    My favorite scene so far was when his fellow Mandaloreans came to his rescue during the firefight. It wasn't that they came, it was HOW they came! That scene with them flying in was truly old school, they all came in on wires, ala the flying monkeys in The Wizard Of Oz. If you've ever seen the old b&w weekly matinee features, starring Rocketman and the like, you'll see them using the same tech, 70-80 yrs ago! Compared to the computerized chaos usually depicted in 'mass-flying' scenes from Marvel and the like, this was a refreshing change of pace. It had to have been a concious decision to go this route as I'm sure nobody in production would've batted an eyelash had they used CGI! (I wonder which is more difficult to film, I wouldn't be surprised if what they did was harder and more expensive to execute!). No, the time-honored Star Wars tradition of paying homage to adventure filmmaking from the past is being continued, bravo!
