My Evaluation of Episode 9 of ‘The Bad Batch’

The Bad Batch has had its ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was all pros, no cons, and now I’ve got to write about it.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

First off, and I’m going straight to the nitty-gritty with this evaluation, was that a first rendition of Snoke?

In Episode 4 of The Mandalorian‘s second season we saw Mando and co. go into an Imperial facility on Nevarro where they encountered blue tubes with the remains of what appeared to be a botched Snoke clone. I immediately began to suspect that these shows Filoni were producing were going to try to make the sequels make more sense. And no, these connections won’t ultimately fix the debacle that is the sequel trilogy (only an animated remake of the trilogy would fix that) but it can make the sequel trilogy a little bit better.

Now, in this episode, we’ve seen more experiment tubes, this time with green gook inside, and inside that green gook we managed to see a large alien that looked like a hybrid between a Grey and whatever Snoke is.

The Bad Batch season one, episode three recap: Replacements

This feels like an early rendition of what Snoke turned out to be but the real question is, what eventually succeeded in creating Snoke to the point where he could shoot lightning out of his fingers with a simple gesture?

I think we’re going to get this question answered in either this show or maybe the Ahsoka series.

And then there’s the other major bombshell of the show and why I truly believe this series is connected to The Book of Boba Fett. Yesterday’s episode answered the question of why Omega is deemed so special. Apparently she’s made of first-generation genetic material from Jango Fett, resulting in the notion that she is Boba’s sister.

Why would Filoni reveal to us that Fett now has a sister months before his show comes out? It’s not a coincidence and I am totally here for it. Plus, the show is roughly six months away and we haven’t gotten any casting news which means…

Here’s to hoping for her live-action debut in The Book of Boba Fett.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.

The Ten Ugliest Deaths in ‘Star Wars’

I found this post I wrote a couple of years ago and because it felt humorous I decided to reshare it. Enjoy!

At first thought, Star Wars is a very family-friendly franchise. There is never too much violence, zero over-the-top sexual themes (well, besides the adult implications between Kylo and Rey, lol) and very mild cursing. That’s part of the reason why these movies are so much fun to watch. Whether you’re 5 or 85 you can enjoy these films to the height of enjoyment and never have to worry about any suggestive content. But, while Star Wars is clearly made for the masses it does contain its memorable moments–specifically deaths–that can leave a chill down your spine. That’s what this post is about. Which ten deaths have I found to be the worst in Star Wars? Here’s my list.

10. Boba Fett

Boba Fett

Boba Fett was easily one of the coolest characters in the original Star Wars trilogy. Unfortunately, he didn’t last very long and ended up suffering the fate of being eaten over a thousand years in the belly of a Sarlaac. That’s nightmarish.

Revisiting The Last Jedi Novelization: Part 2

Yesterday I read the prologue and the first three chapters of the novelization for The Last Jedi. Today, I share my thoughts on Chapters 4-6. Enjoy!

Chapter 4 very simply gives us a more detailed account of the battle of D’Qar from Paige’s point of view, giving us a chance to know her character at a deeper level than what we were afforded in The Last Jedi.

There’s also a sense of disappointment in Poe Dameron in the fact that he decided not to heed his superiors’ orders and got so many Resistance fighters, like Paige, unnecessarily killed.

But undoubtedly the best thing about this chapter is when Finn wakes. We get to comprehend how he feels about being on the Resistance ship and how his thoughts primarily rest on Rey. It’s a testament to their friendship in the film. Continue reading Revisiting The Last Jedi Novelization: Part 2

A Deeper Analysis of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Title

Last Friday Star Wars fans were finally provided with a tantalizing teaser for Episode IX where we not only got to see our favorite heroes and villains again but also were introduced to the name of this Skywalker saga finale, The Rise of Skywalker. The title was met with mixed thoughts. Some loved it and immediately began to theorize about what the name could mean, while there were those who didn’t like it and thought it was just a straight up stupid name. For me, I found myself in the middle of both realms. On one hand, I like the title and then, on the other hand, I find myself confused by the title’s pronunciation, for it doesn’t flow off the tongue as easily as some of the other Star Wars titles.

But last night, after watching The Last Jedi, I realized that there may be way more meaning to this name than first conceived. There are plenty of theories out there in the world about the title and what it could mean for the movie. One of the theories is that “Skywalker” is a new term for the supposed Jedi. While that may seem silly (and clearly not right) I think these theorists may be closer to the answer behind the meaning of this title than they think and I think I may have solved at least a portion of the title’s meaning. So, on that note, here’s a deeper analysis into the title: The Rise of Skywalker.

(The words in bold are to emphasize certain points in the post.)

My Version of The Last Jedi: Chapter Forty-Six

The Imminent Showdowns

Captain Phasma charged Finn, her spear held low in preparation for his first attack. She had been patiently waiting to enact her revenge on the traitorous stormtrooper and now the moment had arrived.

As she threw all her weight against him and their weapons clashed she smiled. He was simply no match for her and he would learn this fact the hard way.

Rose knew Finn was in trouble as soon as the chrome trooper charged him. Being a woman, she understood what a deep and fierce anger from a furious woman looked like. This stormtrooper, whoever she was, hated Finn and nothing Finn could do would be able to stop her…unless Rose joined the fight.

Much to her surprise, Finn was handling himself surprisingly well against the trooper’s onslaught, blocking and evading her attacks with relative ease, and delivering several attacks of his own. Rose could see that the trooper was becoming frustrated, her assault upon Finn becoming more and more aggressive. Rose needed to do something, and quick.

My Version of The Last Jedi: Chapter Forty-Five

Power of the Darkness

Kylo Ren knew something was wrong as he, Rey, and Luke ran through the city. It was as if the city had been abandoned, for the Nameless were nowhere to be seen. The silence was almost deafening as they passed by the black spires that ominously reached toward the sky.

Luke could feel the disturbance as well but it was an odd feeling. It wasn’t the cold touch of the dark side but rather a subtle tingling in his spine that somehow felt more dangerous. There was something strange at work here.

Rey did not notice the warning signs in the Force because she didn’t care. To know that Snoke was responsible for her parents’ death left her roiling with strong emotions she needed to abate before they consumed her. All she wanted was to see Snoke die.

They entered the final spire that stood at the end of the walkway gazing down at them like a dark giant. Within the building, their pace slightly slowed. Each of their sabers ignited, painting the dark hallways in a brilliance of colors.
