The best genre of Star Wars media? Brandishing yourself. Old west forced sack removal.
Werner Herzog’s surprising(?) praise. “Real filmmaking” in the wake of the prequel trilogies. Wooden green-screen acting vs sweet puppets and actual human beings. Unreal Engine LED walls and volumetric projection and camera tracking.
Our new mythology
Star Wars as our new shared cultural mythology the world over. Concern about disney’s stewardship and the private ownership of our cultural heritage. Streamboat Willie entering The Commons.
Some past famous Mandalorians, this particular Mandalorian, and martial prowess. Mandalorian history and why the Mandalorians are the only ones who figured out how to fight the space wizards for some reason?
Pooping space. Weightless waste elimination can be tricky. Floating turds.
Freezing in carbonite
Cryostasis. Cryopreservation. Avoiding ice crystals. Replacing blood with “antifreeze”
Taking the most depressing angle on droid consciousness and freedom (or lack thereof). And then to make it worse: DRM!
Extra-long postnatal development. Big brains and incomplete gestation. Cuteness. Animatronics.
Elasmotherium. Whooly rhinos. Hiary…. eggs? Historical rhinos. Rhino evolution. Balut.
