So i hear that "book of Boba Fett" isn't bad.  I'm afraid to spend
time with it tho. Lately most everything has been trash and/or a
setup so you can watch them destroy a classic
character/franchise/etc. ( not 100% but damned close )


I don't know what the Book of Bopba Fett is, but I have the hunch that you will regret it if you do there. Don't do it. Cling to what remains of the Star Wars franchise and don't let Disney destroy it for you.

Latest Disney + TV show in the franchise.

But i have heard good things.  there is always a chance upper management wasn't paying attention and they put out a good show.  Ill wait until its done, in case its like hawkeye ..where they screw the fans towards the end.

It is amazing that the wack TG director from Matrix manages to be lowkey social justice virtue signaling compared to the rest of Hollywood.

In my mind Star Wars media ended in the late 90s. There are some video games and expanded universe properties that are sequels to me. Everything that came out after The Phantom Menace, even if subtle, exhibits influence from the prequel lore, or dress, or accents, etc. making it tainted and unwatchable.

I have not watched it all, as it was boring and sort of lost interest, but Solo didnt seem too bad of what i saw.  No, nothing like the first 3, but seemed ok.

Only ANH, ESB, and RotJ are canon. Also, the lunch box is canon. And the Christmas special. All else is Disney.

A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. 

Also known as Ep. 4, 5 and 6. 

Sometimes called the original trilogy. 

The lunchbox is a thing you take your PB&J to school in.

Ok i now get the reference for the 3 movies. And yes i agree it went off the rails after that.

 

I still dont get the reference to a lunchbox being cannon..  Must be an inside joke that people like me dont get?

In the late 1970s, early 1980s a lot of kids carried lunch to school in aluminum lunchboxes instead of paper bags. The most common style was made by a company called Aladdin, which had space for a sandwich and snacks and also held a small Thermos with a cap and cup for a beverage. They were manufactured in all sorts of styles, mostly with cartoon characters.

If you had the Star Wars one, you were uber-cool.

Ah..  yes. i remember those lunchboxes in grade school.  We still had glass thermos.. sucked when they woudl break and you had nothing to drink for lunch.  I carried a black 'work' lunch box instead of the little ones, with a full sized thermos in the lid.  A 'mans' lunch.. 

By the time Star wars came out, we were past that point and everyone was either bags ( both paper and cloth ) or they just bought lunch in the cafeteria. So between that and mine not having images, i never made the connection.

I used to buy Mad Magazine to read the latest movie parodies so I would have an IDEA of what the plot was in the actual movie when my friends would talk about it in school. 

Caused a few really weird conversations when the satire really veered off from the actual movie plot and I wasn't old enough to recognize it... I distinctly remember getting caught out once - maybe on JAWS.

We're enjoying Book of Boba Fett. Just watched the latest episode on Monday, I think.

As for some of the other recent movies - I can't see myself ever watching Solo again, it was just filler. But Rogue One was very very good, I've probably seen it 3 or 4 times now.

So i guess Disney is getting grief that they are streaming 'naughty shows' like The Defenders and Daredevil. 

"mothers against something or other" is trying to get it shut down.

Mothers against shit ALWAYS lose. If they get their way, their kids just find something WORSE to be attracted to. 

So, possibly Mothers Against Disney can take Disney out, and without Daredevil and LGBT+ Pixar - the kids will go underground and find worse shit on the Internet to rot their brains on. 

Win/Win... everyone loses!

It could be argued that the "worse shit" could simply be "conventionally bad" instead of "pussify America bad". I'd be ok with that outcome.

I've found that it's easier to just always assume new media of old franchises that I liked will be terrible and ruinous. Then, when I hear through the grape vine that it's actually good, and then I try it for myself and find that it is good, I can be pleasantly surprised. And if I don't hear it's good, then I'm not disappointed.

It's a shame but that's where we're at now.

Oh, with one caveat: I'm done with Star Wars. I think that go so shitty during the prequels that it lowered everybody's expectations, and so I started hearing false positives from my otherwise reliable sources. Star Wars is dead to me. I don't care how good anyone says some new show about Uncle Owen's wacky adventures that lead up to him stealing that speeder that C3P0 hides behind in that one scene is. Star Wars is creatively dead. They can't write anything new without referencing one of the original films (and usually the first two at that because they know nobody has any nostalgia for ewoks). I'm not getting fooled by that shit anymore.

Anyway sorry for my rant. Did I mention that I used to like Star Wars?
