    Good kind of trailer. Doesn't spoil anything, just shows concept art and BTS snippets. Cool.

    This is the first project from the High Republic era that actually looks kind of interesting.

    They put in some serious work for the trailer, sweeps you away.

    Exploring HR era game-wise looks promising.

    After a mediocre start to the new Boba show, episode II was fire!

    Frenetic desert train raid, trippy brain crawling lizard, black-smithing a new tool, bar room brawl, twin hutts, killa hit-man wookie etc...a solid hour.

    The flashback Tusken story line turned out great...funeral pyre scene was sad vibes and that tribal war dance around the fire was a perfect outro.

    When the Tusken puts the speeder in reverse made me crack a smile.

    Yew, really enjoyed this one.

    Another lackluster episode that I discuss a bit in the TV thread. One cool easter egg is the use of some McQuarrie concept art from ROTJ.





    Also, blink and you miss Peli Motto from TM walks by with her Pit Droids.

    ^ I noticed the Mando' mechanic taking a stroll and big up on the McQuarrie drop (they should of kept Luke in the painting).

    Chapter III -

    Machete as the Rancor trainer!
    Boba gonna be riding and styling on the Rancour around town.
    Them sneaky twins might have a trap to have the beast turn on him @ some point.

    They telling us twice about Tatooine being an ex-ocean planet for a reason?
    Talking of planets, show us Hutta!

    The Cyber-punk speeder chase was not whizzy enough.
    Felt slow and cranky like the Bobby Dee grocery store kickings in The Irish-Man.

    They need to light up Jabba's old lair with a few oil lamps, was blinded during some of the wookie assassination attempt...even in dynamic setting.

    Another Tusken funeral pyre, even sadder then last weeks...whole tribe smoked out.
    Revenge is going to be so sweet.

    It had some cool bits and moments but, on top of less than good moments, the chase scene was awful and a display of Robert Rodríguez at his worst. I was thinking "man these colours, this... complete lack of speed or action... this camp... is this a Spy Kids- oh damn Robert Rodríguez directed this, didn't he." And so he had.

    Not if I understand how the easter egg is supposed to work. Those two characters are toting an in-world painting. The only individual who would have had such a painting done is Jabba himself. Jabba wouldn't have had a portrait of him and his hangers-on painted when Luke visited 1) because you don't have a portrait painted that includes images of people who are about to kill you and 2) there was no time for such a portrait to be painted.

    He commissioned it later that day, and then he died and the painting languished in the studio until someone bought it or he was going to dispose of it, at whic moment the chase occurred.

    Who's to say that isn't how it happened? Surely not me.

    They did Boba a dirty in this series. He's supposed to be a ruthless bounty hunter, therefore of all people he would know respect in the criminal underworld comes not from mercy but brutal murder and a total lack of empathy.

    Should of shot up those biker kids the moment he confronted them and they admitted to stealing the guy's water. "No job ya say? Well time to meet your maker!!!" Pew, pew, pew flamethrower noises.

    Episode three of Boba Fett gets two thumbs down.

    The first third of TBoBF E04 was generally a continuation of the poor showing in E03, however it quickly made up for it in the latter two thirds, which I'd give an 8.5 or 9. It was a definite improvement. Hopefully, they can keep the momentum going through the final three episodes. I will say the show finally addressed my biggest issue with the show thus far - Fett's motivation for wanting to become the head of a crime family. Something that should've been addressed much earlier.

    Chapter IV -

    Fed up working for idiots, fair enough.

    When Bobba was zappin the hells angel speeders, hearing the Slave 1 cannons again gave me a flashback to the AOTC asteroid field battle.
    I was wondering if there were any seismic charge bombs left (the explosions sounded absolutely incredible in cinema)...they saved one for the right moment!

    Boba placing the dinner table for the mobster sit-down above a Rancor pit, haha.

    I could watch BK rip apart Trandoshons all day (they was really hateable in TCW).

    Is there any series/movie out there where the main character is truly evil? All the recent examples I can think of where they put a villain as the protagonist, Joker, Cruella, Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn, and now Boba Fett, their evilness has been de-emphasized. Either they are just misunderstood, have a tortured past, not really that evil, etc. One of the prerequisites for a good story is the ability to connect with the characters and I'm not sure someone who is doing nefarious deeds with no redeeming qualities makes for a relatable main character. But if you do put a villain as a main character then that ruins their status as a villain. It's a catch-22 situation.

    But then again maybe the major studios are just afraid to make a true villain as the protagonist. Or maybe they just lack imagination. Or maybe audiences think that's what they want, but if they actually got a series/movie like that they would really hate it. I don't know. :dunno:
