  1. They address the first point in that Genosois designed the Death Star but Erso was one of the scientists to make the laser work and it a reality. They had a book release just before the movie that details it more, Catalyst. But all in all, Rouge One def doesn’t ignore the prequels - cameos from Mustafar, Courscant and Bail Organa. I think it’s been the only post Disney movie to properly reference them?
  2. Couldn’t find a thread about this so sorry if already posted. Anyone been watching this/kept up to date? (Unfortunately as it’s AppleTV I’m not finding many people have, understandably.) I watched the first season a couple of months ago and while slow to start, really enjoyed it. Season 2 just finished up last week and while the majority of the season was somewhat disappointing, that finale was grand. It kind of felt like the whole season was just building up to that one episode - and as good as it was, not sure it was worth the 9 episode lead up either but I’ll take it.
  3. Maybe it’s more about numbers and making sure those who were Republic don’t become Separatist, and if a former Republic planet does become neutral, try to get the numbers from a planet that that was neutral. Ultimately you’re right though, it doesn’t really piece together. But hey, Star Wars.
  4. This is was my understanding of it as well, plus they hated Jedi and they were the guardians of the Republic, so they’ve always had some sort of animosity towards the Republic.
  5. Mortis stuff seems to be very love it or hate it. Personally I’m not really a big fan of it at all and thought it was too silly even for Star Wars, but it gets more attention than it deserves from both sides. I don’t get the intensity around what were pretty average episodes in a cartoon. I was glad they didn’t end up going there in Episode 9 though, but then considering what we got maybe it wouldn’t of been that bad.
  6. I think the plan is that it's a limited / mini series so 4 sounds about right. I like that for Disney+ shows, things are as long they need to be and there hasn't been set episode lengths or season numbers. Mando has 8, WandaVision 9 and Falcon and Winter Soldier is 6 eps. Though I'd bet Ashoka and Rangers of the New Republic are the same as Mando when they're released.
  7. He did, on its own right it is a great flick. And not to get into another sequel discussion because I think it’s been done to death, but in hindsight the movie is also responsible for all the issues that plagued the sequels in my opinion.
  8. Yeah not great I’ll admit. But I still choose to remain optimistic, they have pushed this project back enough (not counting Covid) I think it’s a good sign they aren’t rushing into it, trying to get it right. Getting Edgerton back is a huge relief for me as well.
  9. Fair enough. I don’t think they need to involved with everything and I’ve got enough confidence in Chow to do it. They’ve got plenty of their own shows to keep them occupied in the near future, taking on Kenobi as well might be spreading things thin. Personally I’m not seeing anything concerning about it. As long as JJ isn’t involved with Star Wars anymore that’s good enough for me.
  10. Well Kathleen produced Mando too and Chow directed the best eps of the first season, so half of Mando is involved. Just not the show runners. I’ve got faith, I think Disney had realised interfering wasn’t helping them and the hands off and letting Kennedy do her thing has paid off for Mandalorian.
  11. Tony Soprano Walter White Michael Scott Carrie Mathieson Starbuck (Reimagined BSG) Lucille Bluth. . . Jessica Walter passing meant there was a lot of tributes to her recently and forgot how much she owned that role. Tyrion Lannister Jimmy McNulty
  12. Does it strike anyone else as kind of messed up he is becoming buddies with the man whose son he killed? Way to mess up the guy even more when he does find out.
  13. The IMAX thing doesn’t make any sense though. There are plenty of blockbuster movies that have scenes shot with IMAX cameras and none of them are 4:3 - and this definitely wasn’t shot using IMAX cameras. Maybe they crop it for home release - but that makes this even more ridiculous. It’s only a recent choice he has made. Which is baffling when this is a streaming movie. I mean it doesn’t even have any IMAX screenings now or coming either, so what’s the point.
  14. It was a breath of fresh air after Justice League. Good start - funny that Bucky and Sam don’t even share any scenes in the first ep.
  15. Yeah ok, that actually does make a lot of sense now.
  16. What is with the aspect ratio? It’s not like this thing was ever going to land in the cinema, so I don’t get using an IMAX aspect ratio for what’s a streaming movie. Even then, the IMAX scenes in Dark Knight still weren’t 4:3. I just don’t get it at all.
  17. Im about over halfway through. So far I’d say the theatrical was like a mild diarrhoea, this feels more like the first post-constipation crap. More satisfying but still shit.
  18. Jethro Tull deserved that win.
  19. I’m giving you 4 episodes before you give up on it... I just really couldn’t into this one. It didn’t really have anything that made BSG special and none of the characters were particularly likeable.
  20. I think their wave away explanation is that only the first five models knew how to create biological models, the others didn’t, they didn’t even know to build the resurrection technology. But yeah still lame. I really liked the boxing episode but the TV cut is one of the few better than the extended counterpart. The extended one draws it out and kind of loses the point. The original cut is much tighter. I think they even cut out bits of the score in the extended, which sucked because some of it was great.
  21. It’s a fantastic set of episodes but I feel like that’s where the show hit its peak. After that, there are some fantastic episodes - the mutiny in S4 in particular- but it never really reached those highs again. But yeah, Adama’s speech before the jump, Galactica jumping into the atmosphere, Pegasus to the rescue, Tigh and Ellen....Sci Fi on TV never was or has been that good since, imo.
  22. Just in case anyone else is like me and switched off right as the credits started....this episode actually does have a mid credits scene. nevermind Brando already called it, missed that sorry!
  23. They made it between S3/4 - that thing about Starbuck at the end with the Hybrid was kind of a teaser for what her return meant, or why she returned in Season 4. Which we never ended up getting a good explanation for anyway.
  24. Or Carol didn’t leave immediately after and something happened between Monica coming back and returning to Sword? Might have caught up with Monica while she was hanging about for Tony’s funeral. But I think you’re right, if she does have powers, I don’t think it’s completely related to Wanda.
  25. Yeah that’s the impression I got but maybe some flashback in the movie or even Wandavision? I mean probably a stretch, just the way they showed her reaction to Carol. Maybe I’m reading too much into it and she is just annoyed at her for not coming back.
