Hope you have a great day! Some of us are enjoying the new Obi-Wan trailer



As a prelude to Obi-Wan I'm watching Rebels...

I wish they offered subtitles for Chopper. 😄

I just rewatched Bad Batch for funsies (flippin' Wrecker!), and need to go back to rewatch the last few seasons of Clone Wars. Curious if it'd be worth rewatching Solo since that chronologically takes place just before the new series. 

  • The Phantom Menace, Episode I
  • Attack of the Clones, Episode II
  • Revenge of the Sith, Episode III
  • The Clone Wars
  • The Bad Batch
  • Solo
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Rebels
  • Rogue One
  • A New Hope, Episode IV
  • The Empire Strikes Back, Episode V
  • Return of the Jedi, Episode VI
  • The Mandolorian
  • The Book of Boba Fett
  • Star Wars Resistance
  • The Force Awakens, Episode VII
  • The Last Jedi, Episode VIII
  • The Rise of Skywalker, Episode IX


Solo doesn't get the love it deserves. It keeps inching up my all-time rankings of the movies. Since you didn't ask, here's my ranking:

  1. The Empire Strikes Back
  2. A New Hope
  3. Rogue One
  4. Return of the Jedi
  5. Revenge of the Sith
  6. Solo
  7. Attack of the Clones
  8. The Last Jedi
  9. Tie - The Phantom Menace / The Force Awakens
  10. The Rise of Skywalker



I saw the 6am showing of Rogue One on opening day at the BFI IMAX in London, before going in to the office for the day. That was the only time I ever walked out of a packed movie theater, and nobody was talking. One of my favorite Star Wars movies, for sure. 

Solo got a bad rap, IMHO. It is a fun heist movie. 

I really wish the directors of the final trilogy had actually talked with each other, instead of having us watch the results of a pissing match that diminished the storyline for no real reason. I still haven't forgiven Abrams for his overly lens-flarey Star Trek movies (and would it have killed him to spend 5 seconds explaining why the Romulan miners' face tattoos were such a big deal, or why he decided the alien race needed to look completely different), so I was salty going in to TFA... but I can't forgive him for the stupid kiss near the end of RoS. Sure, give the genocidal psychopathic incel last-minute redemption. *eyeroll*

Alternatively... 5/4 is Brubeck Day. 

Time Out is one my favorite albums of all-time.
