  1. Why does Boba Fett think his armor is in the Sarlacc Pit? Did he forget how he got out? I get that he was out of it when he crawled out and doesn't remember the Jawas stripping him of it. But does he think that the armor slipped off him as he crawled out? Or he took it off when he got out and it fell back in? Not sure what his line of thinking is with that.
  2. How did Max Rebo survive that Sail Barge explosion??? And if he was able to, who else made it out alive?
  3. Eh, The Fugitive worked because Dr. Kimble was innocent and out to prove it to law enforcement. Not sure if that type of story would work with bounty hunters.
  4. Besides Silver's line about being coked up and torturing a teen for laughs, I forgot to mention the other standout line from this season that was a wink to the audience about KK3. After Silver goes with Kreese to Miyagi-do to show Daniel he's back, Daniel gives Johnny the rundown of KK3's plot offscreen to catch him up on who Silver is and the history between him and Daniel. Johnny's first words to Daniel are something like, "Wait a minute...you're telling me they let you into the final of the tournament just because you were defending champion???"
  5. Agree with you all. This latest episode is some of the worst Star Wars ever made. None of the characters are remotely interesting. That stupid biker gang looks like Griff's gang from Back to the Future 2. And those chase scenes were just...it's like something some kids put together using iphones. Just wow.
  6. I've never liked part 3 because I always thought Chozen was Daniel's greatest opponent. Chozen was a major kick ass karate master, as seen when Daniel watches him beat the crap out of all the students in the Sato dojo one on 10 or whatever it was. He goes after Daniel not for points or a high school trophy, no referees or time outs. Chozen literally wants to kill him. By overcoming that and winning, along with the rest of his journey in KK2, you'd think Daniel would have a newfound perspective on life. Instead in KK3 it's like part 2 never happened and Daniel is back to square one where he's a
  7. So I just read that the answer to our question is in a comic book series called The War of the Bounty Hunters. Apparently in this series Darth Vader goes on one of his killing sprees and wipes out the Grand Hutt Council. (I never knew that's what it was called but there you go.) Vader's massacre resulted in a massive power vacuum not just on Tatooine but everywhere the Hutts operated. This is how Bib Fortuna was able to take control of Jabba's former organization and why it took so long for the Hutt twins to re-enter the fold. Honestly I like this explanation. I just hate that once again
  8. Early in this season when Silver was refusing to join Kreese I thought it was funny when he said in the 80's he was so coked up he thought he could rule the world and spent months torturing a teenager all for some high school tournament. He was talking for the audience saying how cheesy this whole franchise is if you pull back and think about it too much.
  9. Daniel and Johnny made a deal that Miyagi-do and Eagle Fang would shut down. So they'll get back in the fight by teaching at a new dojo...SATO'S KARATE.
  10. That’s the same explanation I told myself while watching this. When he fell into the Sarlacc he thought he was done. By surviving that he comes out of it thinking, holy spit, I made it out of there. No one has done that before. I need to do something with this second chance I just got. I don’t like it. But I can see it as being the reason why he’s not the Boba we knew before.
  11. Any chance Hilary Swank would make an appearance? We got all these Cobra Kais running around. It’d be interesting for another former Miyagi student to lend a voice to that side of things. Particularly since this show has focused heavily on the female rivalry of the war.
  12. I thought the same thing. Throughout the prequels and TCW series we heard and saw the Hutts running various parts of their criminal empire. Jabba is killed and Bib Fortuna takes over?
  13. My list would move everything to disappointing except for Rogue One and Mandalorian. I’d keep Mando at solid and add Rogue One there.
  14. One of my faves is Christmas in Hollis by Run DMC. And I recently saw this group called the Phat Cat Swingers and they played a bunch of the classics, but in different styles. I loved their Mambo version Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer:
  15. …R2 then follows up with, “that reminds me of the time your dad did [then R2 goes on to explain some incredible stunt Anakin performed during the Clone Wars].” Luke with an extremely puzzled meme look, “wait, you knew my father????”
  16. No, that's why I said when Palpatine was killed Lando, Wedge and the other ships were already going into the reactor shaft. There was nothing the Imperials could do to stop them from blowing up the Death Star at this point except for the Tie Fighters to shoot them down in those tunnels. When the shield generator was destroyed, the Rebels knew immediately the shield was down and commenced their attack on the Death Star. The Star Destroyer wasn't even brought down until after Lando and Wedge were about to reach the central core.
  17. I’ve never liked that battle meditation explanation because it implies exactly what you just said. That the tide turned when the Emperor was killed. But by the tIme Vader threw him down the shaft, the shield generator had already been destroyed and Lando, Wedge and the others were about to fly into the reactor shaft. At that point all the Imperials could do was have the Tie Fighters follow and blow the Falcon up before the Rebels reached the core. If Vader doesn’t turn on Palpatine the Ties would’ve succeeded?
  18. True that. Luke saying this confidently to Han feels more like, well, it didn’t go the way I had planned, but I still know how I’m going to salvage this. Everybody just step back and watch me go to work. It was Luke’s version of Anakin in TCW series getting out of messes he helped create.
  19. That makes sense to me. Everyone went off and did their own thing when none of them felt the other was getting things done. And then Luke fails to pick up on Threepio’s warning? He clearly says, “Master Luke, you’re standing on…” Luke should’ve at least done a double take to see what exactly he was standing on considering where he is and who he’s dealing with. He thought just by grabbing the gun through the Force he’d be able to force Jabba to do what he says at gunpoint?
  20. Killing Jabba offscreen is a bad idea, IMO. I’ve always liked that it was Leia who takes Jabba out. It wasn’t just poetic justice for him enslaving her in the bikini outfit. It was also her asserting herself by taking out the slug who imprisoned the guy she loved and tried to kill her friends. Plus what she has stood for all her life is the complete opposite of how Jabba operates. She unknowingly killed part of the clan who had enslaved her grandmother and father.
  21. The whole thing was conceived just so we could get another Han quip. “Luke, how are we doing?” “Same as always.” “That bad, huh?”
  22. To me the whole thing comes across like there are two different plans going on. Lando, Leia and Chewie are doing their thing. Luke has his own with the droids. Almost like if one doesn’t work the other may succeed. But even though that’s the feeling I get when I watch it I still think that makes no sense. Why would they not work together to free Han?
  23. I agree. A year before AOTC was released, the Star Wars Insider April 2001 issue featured Palpatine on the cover. In that pic he looked substantially aged from TPM, and it looked a little "unnatural" to use his words. So I thought that's where we were going with his character. His body was slowly transforming over the years which would eventually lead to what he looked like in ROTJ. But when the film came out, he didn't even look like that. He still looked like Ian McDiarmid all the way through ROTS. The magazine people must've just been playing around with his look to get people's attent
