The Mandalorian

Recommended Posts

To me, the point of Rogue One was the fact that it was a tragedy from the get-go. No sense watering that down with, "We'll let these folks get away so it's not too depressing for the audience, because heaven forbid they can't handle it." The whole movie was about giving you the whole story behind a simple line from the previous movies about the lives and sacrifices made for the information. The fact that everyone died, even the characters you wanted to like, was exactly the point. It was a tragedy in the Shakespearean sense, not the watered down Millennial sense. I loved it.

 

Hollywood, as a whole, needs to start paying attention to the failures of their SJW initiative. They tried it with Ghostbusters, and it flopped hard. They've tried it in other movies and TV Shows, and they're flopping as well. I tried to watch the new Sabrina the Teenage Witch show and it's message was basically, "A girl can't win unless she cheats, and that's perfectly acceptable." That's not building UP women or their self-esteem, it's telling them they ARE weaker/dumber, and should seek alternative means to compensate for it.

 

And this notion that my generation was only filled with weak/worthless eye candy when it comes to females is freakin' stupid. In the Wonder Woman I grew up with, Steve Trevor was the sidekick, not Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman. Charlies Angels went out and kicked ass while Bosley and Charlie sat on their asses. Etc. It's complete garbage, and the audience knows it, when you go out of your way to intentionally make "the other side" so weak/dumb that OF COURSE your side looks good... instead of actually giving them a story where they get to prove they're worth the respect.

TBH I am so tired of insecure males getting their panties in a bunch (not referring to you) over every strong female character that comes about.

God I'm so tired of that excuse to make ###### "strong" female leads that we should just accept, otherwise it'd just clear we're insecure betas. I'm secure AF. I like movies with strong female leads, in fact now that I have a daughter I go way out of my way to make sure a greater portion of our entertainment is built around actually well-rounded strong (deserved) female leads. In fact my favourite movie ever, The Fifth Element, is lead by the strongest character (a female). The fact of the matter is the majority of these movies, where people like you need to constantly defend it by bashing people for not liking it by attacking their masculinity, exist with these criticisms you feel you must attack because these are NOT STRONG FEMALE LEADS. These are ###### mary sues with undeserved powers, respect and admiration whilst diminishing the integrity of the character of the males that dare oppose them mentally or physically. It's hogshit. It's clear agenda pushing and it's propagated solely by the inability of others to differentiate between deserved criticism and "toxic masculinity".

 

Give me movies like Lucy, Anna, The Fifth Element, Terminator 2, Alien, Hannah. And ###### off with Charlie's Angels where literally every single white guy is a bad guy (shocker), and all these other glorified statements of how terrible I am for being a male.

 

Now, I do believe females need their time in the spotlight with these action movies, and etc. But please stop doing it to the detriment of men, because it's sexist ###### and it needs to stop.

I enjoy movies like Underworld and Resident Evil over other movies with a strong male lead.   Don't see why people have problems with that.  Even movies like Close on Netflix were pretty good as well .   There are of course some pretty crappy movies with a female lead but not any different from crappy movies with male leads.  Like Die Hard.  First few were great but the last few, meh. Lost something in the last few.  And I never enjoyed the Mission Impossible movies to much just because I am not a bug Tom Cruise fan.  Something about that guy bugs me.

I agree with you there but he does do some good films, which bugs me because I have to watch them and then swear at the screen because he's a scientologist nutter who probably scared his own wives to bits.

He always has that smile which bugs me...comes off arrogant.  Maybe it is just me.  Everyone of his movies cept for Legend.  Which is funny since I liked Legend and did not know that was Cruise at the time until years later. I still have the DVD.  Tim Curry made the movie Legend anyway.

Now I have to rewatch Legend and swear at my screen a few times, thanks :)

I think it is his smile.  It's the smile of someone who's just lost an argument to you, but has to smile in that snarky way that says "I'm taking the high ground and therefore I'm better than you".

 

Still, at least I'm not shooting blanks nor do I have to stand on a box next to tall women for movie posters, so screw you Cruise!

Those are heels for men.

I’ve been known to wear a Cuban heel. Feels odd at first but massively adjusts your posture

I really like The Mandalorian. I enjoyed both 2 seasons. Jon and Dave are doing a great job with it and since they are fans of Star Wars, they know what the fans want.

 

Spoiler

Looks like Disney is hiring youtuber Shamook ... so I guess we will be seeing some deepfakes in upcoming seasons and the new series.

 

Luke was a bit umm, forced but I'm glad they used Mark instead of bringing in another actor to be the face and voice of the character. It just wouldn't be the same.

They also need to stop putting 1 homosexual in every movie. You would honestly think that over 1/2 the population is gay. So last weekend we watched a movie on Hulu called "Plan B" ...and what do you know 1/2 through the movie

Spoiler

one of the 2 female leads turned out to be gay 

 

Then we went over to Netflix to watch "Fear Street Part 1" ... and

Spoiler

the main female character is gay.

 

Then we watched watched part 2 and 3 and it turns out

 

Spoiler

in part 3 the Main character is also gay, though it also played by the same girl in part 1 so i'm not sure if that is to say they are related if they are it must run in the family.

Unless the movie is actually about relationships, I don't see why they have to bring gay OR straight stuff into a movie. Get on with the damn story and quit with the irrelevant BS!

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake PS5 and PC timed exclusivity confirmed
      by Asher Madan

      During the PlayStation September 2021 Showcase, Sony revealed that it was working with Aspyr — the team that's ported a lot of old Star Wars games to modern consoles lately — including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. Despite the overwhelming excitement for the project, there was some confusion about whether the game was a timed exclusive. The main question was if it would end up on other consoles aside from PlayStation 5 (PS5).

      The terms "Launch Exclusive" and "Console Launch Exclusive" were thrown around, but it's unclear what they really mean. Luckily, Tully Ackland, the Senior Game Designer of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake, answered that question. A few days ago on Twitter, Ackland confirmed that it's a "timed exclusive for PS5 and PC". This means it'll come to other devices eventually. Ackland didn't discuss other platforms it'd be available on, but we're hoping it hits Xbox Series X|S down the line.

      Typically, timed exclusivity lasts around a year. Just look at Rise of the Tomb Raider as an example. Keep in mind that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is still very early in development so we'll probably have to wait many years to get our hands on it. Given the fact that COVID-19 is still affecting how everyone works, there's no way to ascertain an accurate timeline.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake announced for PC and PS5
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Sony revealed quite a surprising announcement for PlayStation 5 and PC during its September 2021 Showcase. There's a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake in development. Contrary to expectations, it's being made in partnership with Aspyr instead of the original developer BioWare.

      For those unfamiliar with the original, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic takes place a long time before the events of the films.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is one of the best legacy games out there and the remake is still very early in development according to the PlayStation Blog. It seems like it's going to be a few years before we can get our hands on it.

      If you haven't played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, it's available as an Xbox One X Enhanced title on the Microsoft Store for $10. You can also buy it on the platform of your choice since it's out on a number of devices including Android and iOS.

      Are you excited for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake? Did you play the original? Let us know in the comments below.

      Open-world Star Wars game under development at Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Massive Entertainment's The Division The newly reborn Lucasfilm Games brand announced its newest project yesterday, with it partnering with Bethesda for an Indiana Jones game. However, the announcements don't stop there, as today, the Disney-owned brand revealed that it is working with Ubisoft for a new Star Wars game.

      The only major Star Wars games to arrive in recent years has been out of Electronic Arts and its share of development studios thanks to a multi-year deal made in 2013 with Disney. However, the announcement today of a Ubisoft title may mean the deal exclusivity is no longer active, or at least it won't be renewed.

      “EA has been and will continue to be a very strategic and important partner for us now and going forward,” said Sean Shoptaw, the senior vice president of Global Games and Interactive Experiences at Disney. “But we did feel like there's room for others.”

      Described as an open world title, this mysterious Star Wars game is under development at Massive Entertainment, the Swedish developer that's most known for its The Division series of action RPGs since 2016. The studio also developed the hit 2007 RTS game World in Conflict.

      The development is said to be still in a very early stage, with Massive currently hiring more faces for the project. It will be using the studio's own Snowdrop engine, the same one that is powering The Division franchise. Judging by these two newly announced projects, there may be more Disney IP-related game announcements incoming soon as the company taps more publishers and developers.

      Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's next-gen console optimization update detailed
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Respawn Entertainment's popular Star Wars action game from 2019, Jedi: Fallen Order, today received a new update, and it comes heralding a large performance benefit for the new generation of consoles. This is not a new edition of Jedi: Fallen Order, it is an update for the backward compatibility-supported original versions for providing better frame rates and resolutions on the newer hardware.

      The provided improvements are not identical across all platforms or console models. Starting with Xbox, the Series S performance has been boosted to 60FPS from 45FPS. Meanwhile on the Xbox Series X, the game provides two modes with separate performance targets. The Performance Mode will offer 60FPS play on 1080p to 1440p dynamic resolution. The non-performance normal mode will come with 4K post-processing and dynamic resolution between 1512p to 2160p (4K).

      On the other side, the PlayStation 5 only comes with one graphics tier, which also brings the frame rate up from 45FPS to 60FPS, but has 1440p post-processing and only 1200p resolution play support (up from the PlayStation 4's 810p to 1080p dynamic resolution).

      The optimization update 1.12's full patch notes can be seen here. It should now be available for all console players to download, including those who are playing it via EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions.

      Minecraft gains Star Wars DLC themed after original trilogy and The Mandolorian
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Minecraft is no stranger to crossovers, and the latest one to be introduced to the behemoth block-based sandbox title is from a galaxy far, far away. The official Minecraft Star Wars DLC Mojang Studios unveiled today has skins, a licensed soundtrack, flyable vehicles, locations, and much more from the sci-fi universe.

      The new Mash-up Pack contains content from the original trilogy - A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi -, and The Mandalorian series. This includes Star Wars-themed UI and audio elements, skins for players, mobs, and items, plus a pre-built map full of iconic locations that present various scenes from the franchise.

      Moreover, Mojang has included X-wings, Tie Fighters, and the Razor Crest as flyable ships that let players jump to locations like Tatooine, Hoth, Endor, Nevarro, and the Death Stars.

      The Star Wars DLC for Minecraft is now available for purchase via the Minecraft Marketplace. Also, this is not the only Microsoft and Disney partnership that has cropped up recently, as the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription currently offers a 30-day trial of Disney+ for free.
