  1. Either this or his DNA will be used to create the Snoke clones haha
  2. We’ve had some great shows this year (Stranger Things S04, The Boys, Westworld, and now House of the Dragon), but for me, Andor is the winner. I really wish more people were watching/discussing it.
  3. The ending of TFA was one of the best scenes that I’ve watched in the cinema. Independently of how it turned out later, it promises A LOT.
  4. Surprising hate for Tintin and West Side Story! For me, both are underrated gems, with some of Spielberg most impressive scenes/set pieces. Quite redundant, but for me: 1. BFG 2. Always 3. Skull 4. Hook 5. Amistad dishonorable mention: War of the Worlds & Twilight Zone
  5. Each passing day makes me more sure that we won’t get a last season. I hope that at least we get a 2.5 hour finale like Sense8 to wrap the plot. At least
  6. I am excited to watch it at TIFF (along with The Fablesman, Empire of Light and The Whale )
  7. The 10-15 minutes that starts with the waterfalls scene until the alien ship takeoff might be some of the most uninspired and boring final act that I’ve ever seen. That whole pyramid set is so nice visually and yet, completely wasted.
  8. After season 3, only the 2 Lalo visits to Sauls apartment were top notch stuff. There were some great scenes here and there but overall I think there was a significant drop in quality after the trial episode, where the series peaked.
  9. Season 1 end, although not closing everything, feels like a good conclusion to the series, had it ended there.
  10. I don’t see what is the problem here. And to be honest.. treating this show as a super intellectual piece of art does not help it. It can have layers, but it is not the greatest thing in the world. You want a “fairer” comparison? I think Succession beats it in every way. Adding to that.. it also goes to show then, apart from all the top notch things that you mentioned.. a smart and layered script on paper might also not work in execution. Gus in the series had plenty of smart details in the script. But by going deeper into his character, made a disservice for his Breaking Bad, exposing all his weakness. By the finale of Breaking Bad season 4, it looked like Walter had a great plan that was the only way of beating Gus, while in here, by introducing Lalo, it made me wish he was the villain of Breaking Bad. How did Gus fail on his assassination attempt on Lalo? How did he let Nacho get away? Honestly, I did like the series, and am still curious (and hopeful) of its finale, but no, I don’t think it is as great as it thinks it is, and kind of wish the series ended when his brother died at the end of Season 3.
  11. It is worth then that for me. If that was it, what was the point of the character at all? He started the series as a bandit with the heart of gold, as someone that would die for his father, and died 6 seasons later for exactly that. His character could have been a turning point for Gus and Mikes relationship. Mike could’ve convinced him that it would be the right thing to save and protect him and have him have his happy end. Would have been great for the series, for Nacho and for Gus. This season also had Gus, Mike and Lalo do incredibly poor decisions. It is really disappointing to say, and I am still in the denial phase (hoping as well that they fix in the next 2 episodes), but last time I had this feeling was during the last 2 seasons of GoT, and that didn’t turn out well at all. Thank god the current season of Westworld has been great so far. Couldn’t take more disappointments this year (Northman, Batman, Lightyear, Jurassic and etc)
  12. I think this is GoT Season 8 or SW9 level of having such a bad ending that will spur the whole thing as a whole. For me, this was the weakest season by far, and it did feel like the aforementioned finales that I mention above in a way that it feels that there weren’t many plans and now they are desperate on closing every little thing too neatly. It all started to go down will with Nacho’s death. If that was supposed to be his end, why didn’t they kill him in last season finale? It’d would have been much more impactful. But this episode was a new low. The cameo appearances were straight out of SNL. Nothing interesting is happening and I am simply not caring for any character. In a point that I am felt in the last 3 episodes that the show could have ended in the end of the episode and nothing else would be missing. I don’t care anymore if we will ever re see Kim (would be very interesting if we didn’t get to see her again!). One other thing that it bothered me in other seasons but this one they took it too far is on the “we are not going to show or let you hear something until later.” That didn’t work well in the beginning of the season with Kim and Saul planning on Howard as it totally backfired for me on not letting us hear Genes talk on the phone and understand his motivation. I still hope the series finishes strong, but each following episode is getting worse then the previous one
  13. I quite liked the score in the film. I hate that scenes like the flying dolphin lasts for about 20 seconds and doesn’t let the score breath and carry the scene. In the 90s that kind of scene would last 3 minutes and we would have gotten an outstanding cue. The first ship travel scene, Janes appearance and the very first scene were very well score tho.
  14. It'll be fine. The state that things are on Mandalorian are already very different to the last that we've seen in Rebels.
  15. Just got out of Lightyear.. unfortunately this did not work for me.. Found the main theme extremely simplistic and so repetitive.. some fun villain stuff with the choir but that is about it
