    No, he's saying all of the Clone Wars (look up the viewing order as it's a little funky for the first couple seasons) from the movie up through S7 E8, then go watch Revenge, then come back and finish Clone Wars.

    Don't be a fucking douche. Let the kids watch Phantom Menace. It's one of my boy's favorites.

    Phantom Menace is better than any of the sequel movies, take that as you will

    What’s wrong with Boba Fett? I think it’s great.

    My only complaint is that his life with the Tuscans is a vastly better story than what has gone on in the present timeline after mando thus far. Show is solid and entertaining.

    TPM is better than AotC imo.

    I'll be honest though, I watch them all when they're on. I don't care if they're bad.

    If you want to say it’s better than episode 9, fine. But 7 & 8 are both far superior movies

    Don't let them watch the movies. They'll be chasing a high after the original trilogy that they'll never get again.

    Not letting them watch it is just going to garuntee that it ends up their favorite one. It’s like lying to your kids about weed

    I was in 5th grade when phantom menace came out. I fucking loved it.

    As an adult, it’s objectively better than attack of the clones, which is by far the worst Star Wars out there

    I don't know. Rise of Skywalker made a real push for being the worst. But yeah it's probably still the worst.

    worst: Rise of Skywallker, Attack of the Clones, Phantom Menace

    I hadn't seen Phantom Menace in several years until last week when me and my 6 year old watched it (he's watching all the movies for the first time). It was worse than I remembered. Really dull and slow with only a few spurts of fun sprinkled about. He loved Empire Strikes Back though. That really is the best-paced film of the whole series.

    I just started Boba Fett last night. Will preface by saying that I'm not a huge Star Wars guy (not in the fact that I don't like it, just that I'm not into it into it).

    Am I the only one who thinks that the casting for Boba Fett sucks? I get that it's the same guy who played Jango Fett, and I get that he's supposed to be older in the series. But I feel like he's a zombie in all encounters for a guy who is supposed to be this resourceful, elite assassin. I'm just not feeling the actor, even if the story is great.

    Boba Fett was a. solid entry overall. But it definitely felt like an extended side quest for Mandolorian like when you would do the Catwoman storyline in Arkham City. All the best episodes were the ones Robert Rodriguez didn't direct.

    It just makes me even more certain that Ahsoka is going to be excellent because I have to imagine Filoni will have full control. The episode he directed for Boba Fett was far and away the best one.

    ive got a kid now, mmorpgs seem to be the realm of the youngin’s

    they did do a bunch of QoL changes where you can essentially solo everything so you can treat it more like a traditional RPG, I think the last time I played I was able to level up a character and get through the story in like 4-5 days

    I wasn't sure where to post this but given the discussion about the Star Wars game I thought I would ask.

    I am looking for a recommendation on a good RPG style game that is easy to pick up and also contains good combat. I have really enjoyed the style of the last 2 Assassins Creed games, the RPG elements and wandering, and am looking to branch out from that. I also loved Mass Effect and that style.

    I would like something that I can build a character, adventure around, take on quests and build up my own experience.

    Anyone have any suggests?

    Been reading Chuck Klostermans book on the 90s. I didn’t know this but apparently ticket sales for Meet Joe Black were driven up by Star Wars fans because it was the first movie to have the trailer for The Phantom Menace. They’d just watch the trailer and leave lol

    I never knew about that.

    13 year old me was one of these people. Bought the ticket, saw the trailer, walked out with no regrets. Also remember watching TRL, they showed it once and got so many calls during the show they had to show it multiple times throughout the episode.

    I have a scrapbook that has my ticket stub to Monster's Inc, that I went to see because it had an Episode II teaser (the one with Vader's breathing in between quick cuts from the movie, no more than a minute long).

    I also remember downloading the Episode I trailer from Quicktime.com on my old dial-up modem. It took like five hours.
