I’ve never seen Exorcist III, but I may be the only person besides Martin Scorsese who likes Exorcist II. It’s got a lot of trippy Boorman shit in it and unlike Friedkin (who I don’t think would ever imagine himself to be a genre filmmaker), Boorman dives deep into the fantasy/horror/weird science elements, with Read more

If they recast Luke then Sebastian Stan would be a perfect choice.

yeah and beskar is rare, even more so after the mandolorian purge. chances are most mandolorians dont have an entire suit of it like Din does, hence why we see him act as a blaster sponge on the regular and see other mandos die to regular blaster shots and lightsabers. but i guess i felt the article was suggesting Read more

I guarantee you that 99.9% of the viewing population would find another actor cast as Luke FAR more jarring than some kinda wonky CGI. Read more

The TV series were leaning into the EU fanservice pretty hard for a while now. The old EU may be dead, but Dave Filoni definitely went to its estate sale and picked up a lot of good stuff.
Rebels rescued a lot of stuff, like TIE Defenders, Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Imperial Security Bureau...

What I love about this show is how they just nailed the parent-baby/toddler dynamic. My little one is already 3 years old but so many interactions between Din and Grogu were just so real. The little one reaching out and touching your face for the first time - man, I felt that! :’)

I’m talking about how many VFX animators and CPU usage. This was about 5-6 hours of filming in 12 months (8 episodes of about 40-45 minutes). They probably staff this like a movie, not like 2 movies, so they only have so much time to do this (vs. the 2 years to film an MCU movie that is half as long).

I figured, being the same company that can do flawless de-aging tech, that it was simply that The Mandalorian is still working on a TV budget. The Marvel tech is still incredibly expensive. Read more

It had to be black and white so you'd think the arriving Jedi was Ahsoka since you can't tell the color of the blade through the black and white screen.

One of Stars Wars biggest appeals was and is, its junky, janky world. Some people get the cool stuff, others get to rummage through Pick-a-Part. Stuff breaks and isn’t maintained. Half-assed solutions are used as replacements. Read more

I remember the first time, as I held my son, he looked me in the eyes and touched my face. He “saw” me for the first time. That...is a moment hard to describe. Read more

Fwiw, Gideon does say he already got the blood he needed, and seeing as the cruiser is not a lab I’d reckon it was not there by that point. And I have to assume if they were done with him or that aspect of the plot they wouldn’t make a point of showing that he was not killed despite trying to do it himself.

I’m glad Ming Na Wen is getting the appreciation she has long deserved. I don’t think any type of romance is a necessity, but I’ve noted that this season has tried to soften the personas of both Fennic and Boba, probably to make them more palatable protagonists in their own show. I think the bonding of Cara and Fennic Read more

I think Fett leaving was contrived to prevent Luke and him seeing each other. It would have complicated the scene to have them spit balling about that time they tried to kill each other not too long ago.

I’m going to guess it has to do with budget and Covid as much as anything.  They spend alot of time and computing power to make an Avengers movie.  This was episodic TV.

My read is that Din has now shown that he’s willing to compromise his ideology, but Bo-Katan is not. It’s essentially set up a role reversal from earlier in the season when they all looked at him like a crazy cult member. Read more

Hadn’t thought about that. Also pretty sure the implication is that Bo Katan’s loss of the Dark Saber was pretty public so everyone saw it. She likely has more to prove now.
