How is the Mandalorian better than the last three Star Wars films combined?

    I’m seriously wondering why?

    like they’re both Disney productions they both have a plethora of back storys, canon and lore to pull from.

    I think the Disney films tried too hard to push a social engineering agenda while Mando is just ole fashion whoop ass in a western lone gunman Sci fi motif thoughts?

    I can't speak from experience but a few baby Yoda scenes my other half just told me about are miles above the last Star Wars movies.

    The show is nothing special to be quite honest.


    The Boys blows it out of the water.

    Imo there are more mediocre to bad episodes than good ones. The show is too kiddyish imo and it’s written pretty poorly. Some of the acting and dialogue is terrible.

    Favreau seems to respect Star Wars while Kennedy doesn't give a shit about it, beyond it being a platform for her to spread her bullshit agenda.

    The lore bores me now. Nothing ever new. I’m watching Dark, German Sci Fi, it’s fantastic. Also The Bodyguard about British Secret Service is so good it blows me away people don’t talk about it more.

    It helps to not hate Star Wars if you're making Star Wars content.

    I just started watching this show. Yes it's extremely plain and simple but I like that. Plus Gina Carano is in it, and we have a duty to support her.

    I wish we could finally get a Star Wars themed show or movie geared for adults. Instead of Fraggle Rock frog women laying eggs and cheese dialogue.

    It’s like asking why the new SW trilogy sucks, but Pulp Fiction was amazing, even though they were both made by Disney.

    It’s because they don’t have much to do with each other. The people who sign the checks, & the brand name on the ownership rights, aren’t the artists who actually make the works.

    Abrams & Rian dropped the ball terribly, Jon Favreau knocked his out of the park. Simple as that.

    Is it really that good? Was thinking of getting Disney+ for a month just for that.

    The force awakens started off good and was pretty decent (no great but the potential was there) then the last 20 minutes or so was WTF and that WTF continued for 2 more full length films.

    It seemed like they had no other plan other than push female empowerment - coherent and believable story (plot) be damned.
