The Mandalorian: Chapter 16

Title: The Rescue Director: Peyton Reed Peyton Reed is back to direct the season finale. It’s another amazing piece of television! I was conflicted leading up to this week’s episode; I’m excited to see what happens but this is also the last episode. It’s hard to believe it has already been eight weeks; but what a wonderful and extraordinary Christmas gift from Disney, Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau. Last week Din Djarin had a bit of a tongue-in-cheek message for Moff Gideon. Now it’s time to make good on that promise. The question is who helps Din rescue Grogu and what season finale predictions come [… Click to Continue …]

Ten Star Wars Projects Announced!

On December 10th Disney held their investor day which is when the Disney Corporation announces it’s major plans and projects. Obviously Disney+ is about to increase its library, dramatically. In case you missed it, TEN Star Wars projects were announced!! I was inundated and overwhelmed with so much exciting information I could barely contain myself. There are literally hundreds of posts and articles out there discussing these projects. I’m sure you can go read some of the other official posts but I’m writing my bit about it anyway because it’s my blog. I am using the official announcement as my source for these projects. I [… Click to Continue …]

The Mandalorian: Chapter 15

Title: The Believer Director: Rick Famuyiwa Well folks, here we are at the penultimate episode of season 2; next week will be the season finale. Rick Famuyiwa is back in the directors chair. In season one he directed episodes 2 and 6. Din has some new, unexpected allies and he’s calling in favors with some old friends. He’s a little ticked with the Empire so the rescue is in the works. I enjoyed this one, though its a little slower when compared to the previous two episodes. However this is the episode that sets up the finale so you don’t want it to steal the [… Click to Continue …]

The Mandalorian: Chapter 14

Title: The Tragedy Director: Robert Rodriguez Chpater 14 is directed by Robert Rogriguez, a new director to the series. He’s known for El Mariachi, Machete, Sin City (both movies), From Dusk Till Dawn (movie and series) and, apparently, someone is always shot in the head. Rodriguez does an amazing job, it’s a pretty intense and heart pumping episode. Din Djarin is on his way to the ruins of an ancient Jedi temple as he continues his quest of uniting “the child” with his own kind.  The title is ominous, and rightfully so but I can’t get into that right now. In fact, it might be [… Click to Continue …]

HMDYK About David Prowse

We recently received the unfortunate news that David Prowse passed away. For those Star Wars debutants, David Prowse is the man that wore the Darth Vader costume in the original trilogy. In honor of his passing let’s see how much you know about David Prowse. I’ve always had a huge appreciation for him and I’m very sad to hear about his passing. Perhaps this post will give you a greater appreciation too. David Prowse was born in Bristol, England in 1935 and he was raised by a single mother. He found a passion for bodybuilding and weight training and he eventually won the British heavyweight [… Click to Continue …]

The Mandalorian: Chapter 13

Title: The Jedi Director: Dave Filoni Chills! I got chills in the first 5 minutes of the episode. This is the one folks. The one we have all been waiting for. We all knew it was coming so I don’t mind implying it before the spoiler warning. While I thought Filoni would pull one of those TV tropes of teasing a major character but delaying the revelation until the finale, it didn’t happen. Hence the spectacular opening scene. Besides, there is quite a bit more this episode teases which implies a much bigger finale. Before we go any further …
