After watching the first two chapters of The Mandalorian, I am so excited for the rest of the series. Incredibly good start, and potentially the best new Star Wars content since the original trilogy. If you were on the fence about @disneyplus, I’d encourage you to give it a whirl.
I enjoyed Rogue One as a whole, but didn’t think it was all that great. The writing was all over the place, though it did finish quite strong. In my opinion, The Mandalorian is better… so far. Chapter two really cemented that for me. A big step up from the first chapter.
Curious to hear both of yall's Disney rankings. For me: 1) TFA - very fun, establishes the new characters 2) TLJ - very interesting, if uneven 3) Rogue One - 2nd half of movie is great 4) Solo - fine, unnecessary 5) My 8 yo enjoys Resistance cartoon Haven't watched Rebels
I go back and forth between TFA and TLJ. I think the highs of TLJ are higher (Rey + Kyle in Snoke’s chamber!), but agree with you that TFA was much more even. Rogue One was a bit of a missed opportunity because of its really poor start. You nailed Solo – “fine, unnecessary.”
I think I'm: 1) Rogue One - don't hate the 1st half. maybe because I've read all the novels. 2) TLJ - loved this. 3) TFA (mostly because, when I think about it, it didn't feel like a new story. just new characters.) 4) Rebels - solid. 5) Solo - agreed. Haven't seen Resistance.
