Discussion: The Book of Boba Fett’s theme would be better with Mandalorian lyrics

Let me say first that I absolutely LOVE Ludwig Göransson’s work on the Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. He perfectly captures the tribal and dark undertones of the Mandalorian culture and knocks it out of the park with Boba Fett’s theme in the Mandalorian, his theme being a harsher and more ominous version of Mando’s more noble, heroic theme. It’s SO good and I wouldn’t change a thing about either theme. However…I feel like there was a missed opportunity with the Book of Boba Fett’s theme. Don’t get me wrong, the one we have now that plays over the title card and end credits is REALLY good. I love how it starts out really ominous before becoming more heroic before falling back into that initial ominousness to show how even though Boba isn’t a ruthless bounty hunter anymore and that he’s softer now, there’s still a reason why…

Discussion: Book of Boba Fett Ep. 1-4

I’ve agreed with a lot of the shade thrown at the show. After all, no one hates Star Wars more than Star Wars fans – amirite? But today I think I finally was able to put my finger on what unites all of us: the flashback scenes have been better than the “present day” story. Fans seem to agree that the Tusken Raider backstory has been excellent. It has added depth to both Boba Fett and the sand people, and we’ve gotten some really great scenes like escaping the sarlaac pit, the train heist, getting back Slave I, and others. The present day crime lord story seems to have fared less favorably. We got a weird slo-mo chase scene with Power Rangers, an odd fight sequence with Black Krrsantan, and overall a Boba Fett that is a lot more passive than what many fans want to see. With the droid’s…

Popularity of Star Wars in Asia

The Star Wars franchise took the world by storm when it debuted back in 1977. Combining science fiction with a charismatic cast of characters, a charming storyline, and incredible action set-pieces, the first star wars movie was a smashing hit that inspired tons of other films and made the franchise what it is today. The franchise has been reigning at the top of the popularity charts in North America and is widespread (to a lesser extent) in Europe. In Asia, Star Wars is quite popular in Singapore, Japan, and the series has a lot of following in Indonesia.  Iconic characters such as Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo have amassed a lot of fame over the years, owing to the popularity of the franchise. Needless to say, droids, Jedis, and mysterious alien races add a touch of intrigue that draws people into the series, and the storylines involving these…

Why Live Dealer Gaming is So Popular Now?

Take blackjack as an example game. When people enjoy this game in the online casinos, they’ll get to see real dealers with real cards deal out the hands and show the results of the game. The only major difference compared to playing in a land-based location is that all of the interaction happens through a screen instead of in person. However, the blackjack game, like all live casino games, would continue on like normal while players chat with the dealer, complete with the ability to leave tips. Players can spend their time studying their cards or chatting it up while other players get in on the action as well. The Social Atmosphere of Live Games This is one of the key points for people who play live games online. The major disadvantage to typical online games is that there is a limited level of social interaction, but that can be…

Book of Boba Fett: Thoughts on the negativity toward Episode 3.

This episode has caused quite a stir in the fanbase. Ultimately I get why people are upset. Whilst you should never have to perform mental gymnastics to make sense of something. I do think that there are ways of making these things understandable with just a little thought. Work: They just joined Boba in an instant without thought: The thing is though desperate people will do anything if it means work. Besides they’re no doubt gonna cause trouble if you don’t control them. Why risk being enemies when you can turn them into an asset by hiring them? Punk kids with scooters: Often called 1970’s Vespas as I’ve seen people call them. Comments have been made they would fit more on Coruscant. Well these street kids could very well be from Coruscant or somewhere similar where they’re speeder and dress sense fit in or perhaps at least bear resemblance to…
