    Will do. Not sure when I’ll get to it. Playoffs have cut into reading time.

    Just confirmed. The first Poe Dameron in an X-Wing scene still slaps.

    Seems unlikely given that they are moving to a persistent storyline.

    My dreams of getting Old Republic die a little more each year.

    It might be okay but I just don't see how it can impact the overall story in any kind of meaningful way.

    really weird thing to say right before the debut of your Obi Wan show featuring someone who was a new actor hired to replicate an OG character and everyone loved it.

    Especially because the shortcomings of that film have little to do w the actor.

    yea that's the other thing, she's throwing the actors under the bus to try to cover for her own shortcomings.

    I don't know, man. Seems kind of crazy to think the reaction to the movie might have been lower than hoped just because they fired the long time directors and had to reshoot 70% of the movie, which led to characters being completely erased or changed from the original script. Probably just the actor's fault.

    I truly believe she is terrible at her job and can't understand how she keeps it.

    The "Han..... Solo" name origin is unforgivable but the rest of the movie was entertaining. I appreciated the Marxist robot

    Solo was a lot of fun. Wish we could have seen what lord and Miller were doing. I genuinely think they are two of the best film makers working today

    Finished last night. It was very good, not great. 8/10.

    Takes place after Genosis and before the Clone Wars start. Right after Anakin gets his knighthood and Obi wan is promoted to The Council. Also right after Anakin and Padme get married, which makes it a good follow up to Queen's Hope (which kind of sucked)

    Listening to a podcast discussion of the book. They're talking about how toxic the Anakin Padme relationship is in general.

    They are trying really hard to hype up this Cassian Andor series. My interest is being piqued.

    If they knew the show was trash, they'd just minimally hype it and let it die on the vine (similar to Solo). But since they keep talking about it like the next big thing, they have my attention.

    Been excited from the start for Andor. Loved that time period during Rogue One and they showed you don’t have to have Jedi to tell a good story. If anything, shedding the Jedi stuff frees them up to tell whatever kind of story they want. The spy stuff in Star Wars has always been interesting to me.
