In The Mandalorian (Disney+), a highly skilled bounty hunter goes rogue after becoming attached to one of his targets. His efforts to flee his pursuers are in vain, forcing him to confront the remnants of the Empire while protecting a child with mysterious powers.

I’m not going to bother giving you an overview of the plot of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It’s laid out for us all in the first 60 seconds of the 155 minute film. And to some extent, that exemplifies what is wrong with this movie. When you combine the soulless monster that is J.J. Abrams' filmmaking with the soulless monster that is Disney, it’s not surprising that you end up with a soulless film. That’s not to say that The Rise of Skywalker isn’t entertaining, because for the most part, it is. I didn’t start getting really bored until the final 30 minutes of the movie. But it’s entertaining in the sense that it’s fun to watch cool CGI and space battles on a big screen.
I have no clue what I'm doing, but I'll keep doing whatever it is to the best of my ability.
