- The Mandalorian – Trailer
Can’t say I’m a Star Wars fan, only ever seen the originals and they were just ok, seen none of the new stuff. Gave this a try, was a bit crap. Polished right enough, but crap is still crap. In case if anyone was wondering if they need to be into Star Wars to get into this, I’d say so yes.Posted 3 months agobatfinkSubscriber
I thought it was ok…. just ok. Was hoping it would be a bit “grittier” as the trailer suggested – but it’s actually quite disneyfied – I guess they are trying to position it at about the level of the original films.
Will continue watching, but it’s only a 5 or 6/10 from me.
Only 38 minutes tooPosted 3 months ago
If the little green thing is 50 years old, that would put his birth at the time of a young Darth Sidious, approximately the same as Annakin. Anyway, I liked the first two episodes. It is a bit soft though – a bounty hunter with a heart of gold. I thought that what Dave Filoni did with Rebels and the later Clone Wars was excellent and expect similar from this. Looking forward to part 3 tonight.Posted 3 months agooikeithSubscriber
it is much better than the prequel movies.
The prequel movies are the better movies out the lot, IMO Revenge of the Sith is the best Starwars movie.
Mandalorian is good, the first three episodes have def been builder episodes, excited to see where it goes!

Yes hadn’t thought of that, Baby Yoda must have been born just before the original trilogy in the timeline, Yoda must have stopped off for some coke and hookers before ending up on DagobahPosted 2 months ago
I really expected better from Jon Favreau but he seems to have dug very deeply into his bag of cliches. A magic macguffin introduced at the start of the episode which is 100% guaranteed to get him out of a “tough” spot later (and then never be used again 😂), the last second cavalry charge, bad guy saved from certain death cos the bullet hit his pocket watch so he can be back to ham it up in the next episode; it feels like a badly written 90s TV show. Walker: Texas Ranger was more sophisticated than this 😂. Looks great though 😀Posted 2 months agoP-JayMember
I’ve been enjoying it but feeling like there’s something missing, last episode lost me a bit though, the “one of us” crew and the ending scene were painfully cheesy.
I was okay with it, until the fly-by salute. Not only was it cheesy, it was very ‘real world’ like “god speed” in TLJ.Posted 2 months agodarthpunkMember
No real feeling of threat
It’s Disney now, they can only go so far with the violence. While it was a bit Seven Samurai, I still liked it. It casts a wide net and can appeal to a whole family rather than having to be Rodians being beheaded and Twi’leks being set upon by roaving Tusken Raider rape gangsPosted 2 months ago
Yeah 2 behind now, I’ll probably catch up this week though as the Cantina sounds cool at least!
This is starting to feel a bit monster of the week, like a through back to the 90s tele.
I actually miss those kind of shows that you could just dip in and out of. X-Files was an example of a really great one! (Apart from the alien conspiracy crap). I guess they are still making them (NCIS etc) but they’ve definitely fallen out of fashion.Posted 2 months ago
