The Mandalorian S01E07

And we’re back with another review of The Mandalorian. This episode is titled, The Reckoning. It is also by far one of the best in the series. Stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. Our hero, Mando, has to recruit allies to assist him with a job. Immediately the characters are thrown into chaotic situations. I really loved this installment because it mirrors the original … Continue reading The Mandalorian S01E07

The Mandalorian S01E05

When I saw the latest chapter was titled Gunslinger I got excited. Well, my expectations were completely subverted. Although this episode was not warm & fuzzy like the previous one, it fell a bit flat. Started off strong then lost its steam 15 minutes in. I hope something changes soon because the momentum has decreased for The Mandalorian in my eyes. This time around the story … Continue reading The Mandalorian S01E05

The Mandalorian S01E04

This episode rubbed me the wrong way. Sanctuary takes the show in a different direction thematically. Placing Mando in a village straight out of a Disney princess story. Granted there’s still some run & gun scenes but it doesn’t advance the story further. If anything I would describe it as a filler episode. Nothing was really at stake for our hero and his little companion. … Continue reading The Mandalorian S01E04

The Mandalorian S01E03

As a somewhat casual Star Wars fan, I’m not very familiar with the culture of the Mandalorians. This one peels back the layers a little providing more insight. Mando as well as others reveal a bit in dialogue every episode. Lines like, “I’m Mandalorian, weapons are my religion” cause me to question what a Mandalorian is without his arsenal. Do they specialize in hand-to-hand combat? … Continue reading The Mandalorian S01E03

The Mandalorian S01E02 Review

Momentum remains strong with this follow-up episode. Some familiar “faces” return from a certain desert planet. It made me feel a bit nostalgic especially after revisiting the prequels recently. The Mandalorian or Mando, as they refer to him in the show, continues his mission to deliver the bounty. I’m sure that said bounty is going to sell a boat load of toys. It’s just so … Continue reading The Mandalorian S01E02 Review

However, most of the hype is surrounding it’s original content. One of them based in the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian. It’s worth the price of admission alone.

The Lion King (2019) Review

The world would have been fine without another Disney remake. Although The Lion King is visually stunning, it’s treading familiar ground. I was expecting new elements or scenes in the movie that made a significant impact. However, it was mostly a shot for shot repeat of the animated film. This is not a bad thing though. It is a timeless story that everyone can appreciate … Continue reading The Lion King (2019) Review
