    On the plus side, they should probably move out of the house before they turn 120.

    As long as the wearer forgets to wear the Beskar gorget, as Jango did...

    All the Beskar in the world is not going to protect a Mandalorian from a determined Mace Windu!

    Or any other Force user.
    They could just electrocute, hold or choke him. Or throw something at him. Or... probably do half a dozen other things that armor will not protect him from.

    That's why Mandalorian armor is intertwined with Rule of Cool, and you need a cool Force user to overcome it.

    The Rule of Cool is both my favorite and least favorite thing about the show the Mandalorian.

    Straight forward action centered stories that blend science fantasy and spaghetti westerns is a lot better than Current Year wokeness driven stories.

    I still kind of yearn for more depth and nuance in my stories than the Mandalorian provides. I enjoyed binge watching the Mandalorian, but when I tried showing it to some friends I realized "This isn't worth watching twice."

    Not Star Wars, but still under the Disney umbrella...

    Two or three years ago, this would have surprised me. Now it does not. The proponents of woke culture are becoming parodies of themselves to the point where actual parodists cannot keep up. the South Park creators have commented on this recent trend more than once.

    It doesn't amuse me. It doesn't sadden me. This is just the new normal now.

    I've watched several other videos on the subject. It seems that the comic creator is in some sort of extreme bubble, but I wonder if him, or anyone else is deliberately trying to kill the brands they work for.

    Woke Ghostbusters. FLOP
    Woke Captain Marvel. Damaged the brand
    Woke MIB. Underperformed
    Woke Charlies Angels. FLOP
    Woke Terminator. FLOP
    Woke Dr. Who. Damaged the brand.
    Double down on Woke on Dr. Who. Potentially killed the brand.
    Woke Star Wars. Damaged the brand. Solo Flopped, Rise of Skywalker underperformed. Theme park underperformed
    Woke Birds of Prey. Underperformed
    Woke Star Trek, consistently underperformed.
    Woke Watchmen. Underperformed
    Woke ending to Game of Thrones. Dumpster fire (though wokeness is not the only problem).
    Wokeness seems to be killing Westworld.

    Woke Ocean's 11 reboot, moderately successful. Good it's not a blowout. It's 11-1 and not 11-0.


    The new James Bond movie does not look. Wonderwoman 1984 looks like it may have some problems. The first time Steve Trevor died, he died of his own choice to save thousands of people from horrible poison. When he dies again in 1984 it looks like it will be Diana's choice so she can hit the reset button and sacrifice her love interest to make everything right. A strong male character will lose his agency. That is almost the ONLY way this can work because Wonderwoman stayed off the radar between 1918 and 2015. Because the 1984 movie deals with wonky wish magic that means everything she does will have to be wiped away for continuity. Paraphrasing Critical Drinker here.

    I will add, don't worry about the continuity. Justice League sucked. It didn't suck because of wokeness.


    Then again, maybe it's not fair to compare comic books to comic book movies. The comic book industry is contracting even without wokeness helping. This could be a desperate Hail Mary play, but if I was trying to save the comic book industry, my desperate Hail Mary play would be to go as anti-woke as possible. Like Jaw Breakers. Oh well.

    The last season of GoT was the biggest disappointment I've experienced in a TV series. I am curious though, what was woke about it? It never struck me as being woke.

    Dammit... I was planning to watch this series.

    And it's only the beginning. I've completely checked out of the MCU phase 4 (except for Guardians of the Galaxy 3). Phase 4 is going to be a wokefest. I hope it crashes and burns!

    I really hope it turns out to be good. The first movie was enjoyable.

    EDIT: (this is the Mandalorian thread though...)

    Arya never struck me as being a woke character.
