Boba Fett isn't even a Mandalorian in the new canon. He's just a guy who wears Mandalorian armor. Cause that isn't confusing at all.

 

(PS this is also the reason why we will probably never see Mandos on screen. 90% of the audience would be like "Why are there a bunch of Boba Fetts but none of them are Boba Fett")

You should change the thread title to "George Lucas Directs Fourth Star Wars Prequel"

I think I've mentioned before that I was really happy when The Force Awakens didn't do that; it finishes with a lightsabre fight and an aerial battle, but it sticks with Finn vs. Kylo until that's done, then stays with Poe during his trench run until he's done his thing, then it's back to Rey vs. Kylo until that's finished. No constant chopping and changing between the two.

 

TBH I actually don't like how TFA handled it all that well. The climactic moment for the every character in the story is when Rey picks up the lightsaber in the woods. It's like, the most important moment in the entire narrative and it has to share the limelight with Poe destroying the base. Half way through the fight with Rey and Kylo, they just cut away to Poe shootin' stuff. It might honestly be my leaft favorite part of TFA. Star Wars has always had a fear of letting a narrative beat actually have its moment. When Obi-Wan dies in ANH the movie takes like literally 6 seconds to mourn him before the next action beat. Luke's confrontation with the Emperor and Vader in RotJ is constantly undermined by cutting to Lando flying around and Ewok shenanigans. I love that in TLJ even though everything is being cut intermittently, every scene has the same kind of "OH MY GAWWWWD" tone, where the tension keeps ramping up, like you said, until the big splosion. That's some darn good editing and story structuring. Empire does it too when Luke is fighting Vader while the gang is trying to save Han. Everyone is in a similarly perilous situation that they are nevertheless trying to bravely fight through.

 

It's the difference between good filmmakers and... well, George Lucas. He's bad at making movies, kids. Give him no credit for all the best parts of Star Wars, because he was not responsible for them.
