The sequel trilogy is a bigger mess than the prequels.

The storyline over the three movies, yes. But each individual movie is better than any of the prequels.

As far as Star Wars goes? Are you saying Star Wars aren't good movies and should be judged on a separate scale?
No -- I meant, in a vacuum, Phantom Menace is pretty bad when judged on the merits of what makes a film "good" in the traditional sense. But compared to the other feature SW films, it's more fun than than a decent amount of 'em.

Special scene in Mando season 2 edited with epic music.

That's cool and all but I think that music is a bit overpowering. It also spoils the reveal. Yeah, we all knew or hoped that it was going to be Luke, but having a variation of Luke's theme play definitely spills the beans. In the actual version, Luke's theme doesn't hit until he lowers his hood, which makes a lot more sense.

Howard Johnson is right. It's neat to watch it in retrospect, but it doesn't really work filmicly.

The final 5 minutes of that last Chapter is bonkers amazing.

Oh wow. I've seen it of course but I kept trying to figure out who the hell Howard Johnson was in Star Wars.

John Towner Williams

So glad I've gotten to see him conduct in person. It's a little dopey when the Hollywood Bowl is lit by toy lightsabers, but what can you do.

It's definitely a little dopey, but I can't act like I wasn't sad I didn't have a lightsaber when I saw everybody waving theirs around. That concert is one of my fondest LA memories.

She's easily the worst part about The Mandalorian, and has been since day 1, so I'd have no problem if they didn't include her in any new series.
