The Mandalorian started out great! I loved the world and the characters. There was a bounty hunter who was living in a post Empire world, making a living. That world falls a part when he finds The Child and decides to protect him and abandon his guild and way of life. But now he’s on the run and can be tracked anywhere it seems. So he has no where to run.
This has led to the show becoming more episodic and each episode now seemed contained. There seems to be a lack of story that connects the episodes together.
My questions are: why was The Child aka “Baby Yoda” so desirable? Where did he come from? What happened to his parents? The Child was an under-the-radar job at first. The Child is presumably innocent of any crime so why is he ending up in the crosshairs of bounty hunters? Why haven’t The Child’s parents or relatives used The Force to communicate with him or Mando or looking for him?
I thought some of the scenes in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” were great but thought the movie’s lack of narrative drive made it feel too long. I think the production design was A+ but I don’t feel the movie or the script are going to win any academy awards.
Thanks for opening up to feedback, George! I agree with Bryan that some articles are poorly researched. Case in point: V Renee’s article on the new DJI Mavic Mini. The most impressive aspect of the drone was it was under 250 grams and you didn’t need to legally register it with the FAA to fly it. She didn’t mention anything about this point in the article. She basically watched the launch video, got the specs and wrote the article. If the article is merely a YouTube video converted into text, why should I even read the article? I could just watch the video and the article could be called, “Hey, look what I found on YouTube today!”
Never forget: The Last Jedi.
It’s V Stiviano Renee. She never does any research into anything she writes. It’s usually just a story that popped up in one of her subscriptions then she just posts the video and writes about what the video already talks about.
Or she’ll rewrite about something she posted months ago (see how many times she’s written about “ways to use your gimbal”)
