  1. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    The show doesn't seem to be getting a lot of attention fan wise. Shame really, it'll put D+ off from making more of this content and just back to pew pew lasers swords and space wizards. They already pulled the plug/paused the Rogue Squadron movie - this might just be because they got rid of the director but it doesn't bode well. Top Gun in space, how can you go wrong? Naaaaah, back to Skywalker!

    Seems that they are doing 3 episode arcs, so if you haven't started yet. Watching now with 6 episodes out is very satisfying. Amazing how well written and acted this show is so far. Very adult themes - surprising from Disney. You wouldn't really know it was a SW show if you didn't know SW. Wow. I particularly enjoyed the security meetings and all the bureaucratic mumbo jumbo. Very unique side to see on screen for SW. Just please don't make the security Imp lady turn to the rebels. I want dark themes for a change. This show makes Boba and OB1 look really bad now. Seems to be a theme, the off center SW movies/shows are the ones where they can experiment more. Like Rogue One and Solo. Same vibes.

    Prey - Predator sequel movie dropped this week on streaming platforms. Very good, stays close to the original Predator 1 & 2 formula. Lots of your expected gadgets with satisfying usage. Interesting newish pred design, a real baller. Very surprised with this one compared to the other two sequels we've had which weren't great. Easily rate this third favourite behind 1 & 2. Hopefully they go with Assassins Creed route of dropping the predator into different time periods. Samurai vs predator, anyone?

    I agree with Noods and Pench. Some really really silly writing sprinkled around. Having finished Fallen Order, I noticed that the Second Sister said the line "I am what you made me". Then Vader uses the same line in the show. Now, Vader gets his masked sliced twice in the same manner as Ahsoka did to him. HMMMMMMMM, starting to repeat things which removes the specialness about it. A little guttered, tbh.
  6. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    Back on Bagona, you join a saber from some character or something something(post was on reddit, lost it): "There is also a method of unlocking the double bladed lightsaber on the previous planet, Bagona - but this is actually much slower, because the area is off-limits to you until you fully explore the enormous planet Zeffo and gain both the Force Push ability and the Scomp Link for BD-1. So if you're looking to unlock the double bladed lightsaber in a timely fashion, Dathomir is the way to go."
  7. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    I also heard you can get the double sabre in a more story way rather than doing to Dathomir and finding the table early on like I did. I can't imagine not getting it as early as possible though. It is way too satisfying to use. Hardly ever switched to single mode. Keen to try it fresh again on the hardest difficulty now the story is over. I'm going to give KOTOR another go in the mean time though. Hopefully I get passed the first 5 minutes of player movement. I remember it feeling trashy on KB&M. Maybe controller this time?

    When it showed up later in the game again, I had PTSD flashbacks....this isn't a laughing matter, Pench!
  9. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

    Stayed up all night to finish it. Wow, an amazing SW game. Up there with the Jedi Knight series in my books. Story was good. Locations were amazing. All the puzzles and climbing works well to break up combat in between. Can't believe how fluid it was fighting multiple enemies and seemingly switching to the one hitting you first, even from behind. Really well done. In the end, 18 hours to finish the story, minus probably 2 because I kept bashing my head at Jedi Knight difficulty and didn't have the patience or interest to sit and time attacks perfectly. Just blasted through on story mode instead and enjoyed it a lot more.

    That wouldn't fit into the originals. It would totally upset the fanbase and the chain of events. Luke knows nothing but farming and rumours of the Jedi. Obi-Wan and Leia, yeah that kind of screws events up in ANH but with Luke that's a huge no-no. Reva could go back to Tatooine and shack up with Obi-Wan - maybe get that training montage we're missing. Vader is bad ass, didn't even take his light sabre out. Reva was basically nothing to him, oof. Pulling ships from the sky, tearing them up! Notice the flashbacks that Obi-Wan tells him he's still the Padawan with how he fights/thinks. Still fights and thinks like that even now, so the parallels are there with how it fits into ANH and his whole line about being the master. Nice flashback.

    Haha, I didn't know Nicole Kidman was in it, Jebus! Her character is one sick puppy, though.. Interesting. Is it because it wasn't main stream Norse mythology like we've recently seen through the Vikings show? I also finished The Lighthouse last night too. Didn't find it too interesting since it felt shallow to me. I liked the aspect ratio and black and white but what was the story to tell? Felt flat and more just artsy fartsy. The Witch was better, good twist and themes. I had enough of their stupid hats by the end, though. They're all solid films though. Very unique, I like trying something different. I'd rank them, The Northman > The Witch > The Lighthouse.

    Watched The Northman. Another great Robert Eggers movie. If you're after some more norse mythology, this one is a great little story.

    At least the writing is consistent with the empire. They're incompetent and overconfident. Except in Rogue One - the empire there seemed a lot more deadly.
  14. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Wow, just one season. Genuinely flabbergasted. My knee jerk reaction is they'll have to rush from here on out to cover key points until ANH. But if I think about it, they only have to really cover; recovery from his burns and seeing the resistance at Jiimba(?), falling back into the force, possibly connecting with Qui-Gon, rocky montage of training, possible duel #2 with Vader and then sit around waiting for Maul. Not a lot, really? Yeah, one season sounds about right. Sadly.
  15. Star Wars *Contains Spoilers*

    Yeah, he'll have to get "back on the horse" in time for the Maul duel. I'm sure he'll face off with Vader again though. Did they say how many seasons this is planned to be?
