Went in thinking it was going to suck because most star wars movies suck but that...wasn't bad.
Carve out 70 minutes in which to avoid your families this holiday season
while I disagreed with them about TLJ two years ago I agree with their points about TLJ in this video about TROS. And especially agree with them about this new movie.
or as rabid RedLetterMedia fans joke “finally now I can give my opinion now that Mike and Jay have spoken.”
I have a half day at home before I wrap up for the week so I'll listen to it, don't get me wrong.
Just watched it. What an insultingly bad piece of shit that movie was. Fucking incredible.
They turned out to be kind of useless, right? Even when they found Chewie, they didn’t bother to look just a little more and, I don’t know, fine the damn ship full of other people?!

That said, Trudgen rocks. Him, Babu Frik and Wedge forever.
Take that, rewind it back

I can’t believe Abrams retconned this out:

How nice to see a Star Wars story stick the landing! Sure, wrapping up an 8 episode tv show is different than a 42 year old movie franchise but I’ll take what I can get right now.
Also, good thing I saw all of Rebels and Clone Wars or that ending would have been super confusing. I didn’t like it so much in Solo - where Darth Maul being alive, albeit with robot legs, only made sense if you had seen all of Clone Wars - but it worked for me here.
I haven’t seen Clone Wars or Rebels what’s the pay off? The laser sword?
Ahem, I believe you mean the “Darksaber” - a weapon crafted by the first Mandalorian to become a Jedi. It passed through many hands after and became almost a ceremonial weapon for the leadership of Mandalore. Presumably, Gideon obtained it during whatever purge there was. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn than Gideon is himself a Mandalorian.
Ah, that’s mentioned in Rogue One as a fan service nugget.
Damn...they pulled out all the stops in that final episode! Definitely one of the more satisfying endings in any series that I’ve seen in a while. Looks like Gus upgraded from meth and guns to Death Troopers and a Dark Saber. Curious how Walter White would’ve handled the situation with Gus and a Tie Fighter...
Finished up Mandalorian and was a huge fan. This prompted me to watch all of the movies (including Rogue and Solo) which I also thoroughly enjoyed. Is delving into the animated series worth it? Anything else I should read/watch?
I would say the animated series was easily more entertaining than ep1-3 and 9.
Worth a look for sure if you don’t hate the medium.
