The Mandalorian is the exciting new Bittorrent series following the adventures of Boba Teeh. In conclusion, it was dull shit for children that not even Werner Herzog could save. 125.

Surprisingly low WOKE content which is why it got a 125 vs 120. Boba Tee is some kind of mystery meat but your don't see his adult face in the episode, and there is a woman Mandelorian 'blacksmith' (you don't see her face either). That's it.

Or why a platoon of guards can't set up a security perimeter and prevent an obviously hostile droid from just walking right up to the door of the compound, etc etc but that's the fundamental problem with genreshit.

I was underwhelmed, too. The robot was 180, though.

Thankfully, each episode seems to have a different director. The guy in ep1 did the SW cartoon shows. He doesn't seem to grasp live action, and he can't direct

Something is off about this show, like they just did what they are doing with the movies but with 1/8th the budget. They should be using Shadows of the Empire as their model in terms of tone/aesthetic. I thought they might just let the Losers/Nerds this one but that would be asking too much. I am assuming that the writers and stagehands and camerawomen are all lesbians or whatever.

Also, bounty hunters/guys who wear helmets and have no personalities don't get more interesting the more that you learn about them, that's not how that works.

The show sucks. It's frustrating that even the Lucasfilm people have no idea what makes their story interesting. Why even have a show set in this world during this time period (after the fall of the Empire) that isn't about the shit going on at the New Republic and new Jedi academies? Who cares about some random bounty hunter character with no personality or motivation?

Lol nobody cares about the Jedi stuff, which is way easier to screw up by the way, you basically need someone on par with Alec Guinness to make it work imo otherwise it's a slippery slope and becomes gay af. The bounty hunter stuff is way easier to pull off.

Credited. We already know that everything about the jedi and republic post-ROTJ is just a slow boring trickle of bad decisions that leads everyone to pretty much back to where they were 30 years prior by the time of ep7

Not saying Mandalorian is great, but going with a distant side story was the credited move for now. I guess the technology to do good space action inexpensively isn't quite there yet

ok, this is going to sound stupid in a rian johnson "im deconstructing star wars" kind of way, but i think that's the whole point.

a western with all the cliches, but it's star wars. its especially obvious in the third episode which is full of more western tropes and ends with the "saved from a gunshot by something in your pocket" cliche.

i mean just listen to the theme, it's basically the theme from a spaghetti western.

i dunno, it's entertaining so far.

i warmed to it as i watched ep 2 and 3. it sticks out for its sound and visual aesthetic. the story is pretty slow but decent enough. dialogue is predictably silly. definitely looks great amid so much poorly produced garbage available for streaming.

the specific "move" i'm talking about isn't really a western thing but more like some fast twitch bullshit jason bourne started

So you guys complain about capeshit being one absurd action scene after another but when a cerebral western comes on with a (somewhat) realistic world your still not happy because it was still too slow for you? ljl figure your head out.

That's going a too far, but generally more CR than most of the response on the bort so far, which has been the typical bitter, millennial, former-college Republican faggotry that passes for insight on this fallen website. The shootout at the end of the pilot was great as is the macguffin. "WAH WAH THE MADE UP BAND OF SPACE ALIEN OUTLAWS DO NOT DEMONSTRATE ADEQUATE LEVELS OF SECURITY RESPONSE TRAINING TO SATISFY MY PRE-EXISTING/JUST NOW MADE UP PREFERENCES.
