    "Rebels is the best thing that Disney had done with star wars"
    I think that might be some truth to that except i liked rogue one the most. Solo sucked the worst, then last jedi, then force awakens, then rebels, and rogue one was the best

    Yeah was really looking forward to this but darn it was disappointing. Some things were great and L3 was a lot of fun but, eh, just sorta came and went it seems.

    I already watched The Last Jedi back in January. I wasn't planning on seeing another Star Wars movie unless it was great. And since it was okay, I guess I wasn't missing out much I suppose. Although I did see Rogue One and Darth Vader was awesome in that, even though he didn't contribute much to the film.

    if this movie seemed too dark or murky or foggy at a cinema, it means there is probably something wrong with the projector at that cinema, this issue has been discussed in many articles - if something in the projector is worn out or badly configured, then this is the kind of film where it shows, but if everything is fine, then it looks good - you won't notice these shortcomings when you watch a cartoon or, for example, the prequel trilogy which has a lot of light and bright colours

    Ok, so Dryden and Kira fight against each other using Teras Kasi during the climax. Was it fanservice-y? A little, but it was used in the movie outside of the brief mention to L3.

    the Imperial March was an in universe anthem in the original EU as well. It was in the original Han Solo origin story book trilogy.

  • James M

    I am wondering how people would feel if they just start making movies based on the series' rebels and moving beyond that....they never did anything with Han Solo in the series' clone wars or rebels.....and no one really asked for this movie. Maybe its time to stop with these one offs like the idea for Boba fett or jabba and just move on....and if you're going to make a Obi Wan movie then have the fight with him and Darth Maul in it, tie it into the series'. Thats big reason why I think they added Darth Maul at the end....An Obi Wan movie at this point should just be filled with Rebels' series content and characters. It would have strong appeal from the kids who've watched clone wars and rebels and their parents...... Solo....clearly not so much......

    Rogue One is the one great Star Wars movie we've gotten since the Disney takeover. "Chewie" can fuck off.

    Damn i disagree. I was expecting this movie to be shit and i really enjoyed it. Brought life back to the universe to me. Not perfect but i really enjoyed it. I was blown away by the train scene. I also went in expecting to be disappointed but i also didn't pick it apart. So i might just be an idiot because i prefer star trek anyway :P

    L3 seems like a cross between Borderlands Claptrap, and Hitchikers Guides Marvin. The comedic robot uprising scenario seems so familiar, it's almost like a trope.

    Rogue One had a talented actress, Felicity Jones, this does not have the same calibre of leading cast member or story interest. Hans Solo also was NEVER A FUKING MALE BIMBO as portrayed by this prick who looks and sounds nothing like Hans Solo would. FAIL

    one of my biggest complaints was the pointless addition of having his real name not be Han why even bother to go through with that? And in the movie he even mentions his father and how they repaired ships and what not so why wouldnt he have a full name? According to this movie when Luke was born his name shoulda been Luke Solo lmao geeez

    I think every Star Wars movies made after the original 6, are not so good like they used to. The new canon is a total garbage. I've read most of the SW books but the new canon doesn't make sense. George Lucas has to take the director chair once again and re-buy the franchise from Disney, which is destroying it.

    I didn't mind L3
    I think if R2 spoke english he'd come across a lot similar. As I understand it, droids are used as slave labour and spies (which is why they're not allowed in the cantina.) If they don't have consistent memory wipes then their artificial intelligence develops a personality.
    A Westworld type situation is probably always a possibility in the Star Wars universe.
    I for one am excited they're finally exploring this in Star Wars (droid rebellion on Kessel was the best!)

    My summary of their analysis of the characterization, "I didn't like that the characters weren't how they were in the trilogy." "Yeah, the only thing I disliked more was that they just like they were in the trilogy. ". Can't be pleased.

    The actor of Chewbacca is a finnish guy. Maybe he reminded the crew that Treräs Käsi (btw. it means Steel hand) is a nice joke. But I like the idea better that the guys would watch your videos for inspiration. ;)

    If ‘it was okay’ meant ‘its bad’ then id agree. Dont think this origins story did Any Justice to the character, solo in this film felt the same from start to finish - no transformation. Pretty lackluster of an origins story.
    The Actor doesnt have Any vibe of han whatsoever, if i didnt know this movie, the only way ill know hes han is coz hes standing next to chewie. Unconvincing han solo.

  • Teamcardgames
    Teamcardgames 2 months ago

    To be perfectly honest, I hate Star Wars rebels for how terrible it is to the actual franchise and the only reason why it’s good is because it has clone wars characters that got more character development than the actual main characters in the and the writers of rebels is just telling you to go watch clone wars on Netflix and I feel that the ending of rebels is not good that’s just my opinion and I hope everyone understands that.
