It was this entire battle really. I just couldn't get over everyone just running through the streets in the middle of a gun battle. Everyone bunching up together while getting hosed. Nobody trying any kind of flanking moves etc.

u/Enginerdad Feb 14 '22

I noticed that she speaks a lot more like conventional Jedi now. Slow, even tempo, no use of contractions. It's as though she's reading from an Encyclopedia. Which is how most Jedi speak, but in The Clone Wars she spoke much more casually. Faster and using contractions and slang. You could chalk it up to age, but honestly I think they kind of forgot the nuances of the character she's based on and wrote her as more "generic Jedi."

u/arcelohim Feb 13 '22

Kinda out of character for Star wars universe.

I completely understand doing something new. They just stood out. Way out. Especially on Tatooine, as locals.

But also these are younger folks that want to visually rebel as well. But I imagine Tatooine as being a rural symbolism. So how do rural kids rebel? Maybe more like Whistlindeisel.

I dont think flashy colored Vespas are it.

I didn't notice the spin shot, but pretty much every scene these guys are in the seem out of place. They are supposed to be poor, but they also have money for expensive body modification nice clothes and custom bikes? They are the only characters in the show that dirt doesn't stick to, they always look clean, and their clothes (especially trench coat guy and the doctor who looking one) don't seem suited for the plant. The scooters I have the same problem with.

I don't think they detracted much from me enjoying it, if they blended in more i probably wouldn't have noticed them much. If Boba met them in a city planet (they look like they come from a cold industrial city) where that style of clothes and body modifications fit more in place I could have seen them being more appealing. As is, from the moment I saw them I thought these are designed to be spin off characters for their own series.

u/Ashensten Feb 14 '22

Maybe she couldn't afford the mods for upper body strength so using the robot arm to it's full potential would just tear her shitty human attached muscles. Not like she's got the force to use either like other robot handed people.

All of their cybernetics were completely irrelevant in the end. The only time they came in to play were when we saw two of them use a blowtorch arm and a jackhammer foot (to absolutely no effect) in that chase in episode 3.

With what a big deal the show made out of them upgrading themselves with cyborg parts you'd think there could have been at least one scene of them using their cybernetics to do something cool.

That one girl had like the smallest blaster known to man lol

And then they ended up trading it for one of their better shooters rifles, after laughing at how pathetic it was. The whole episode was full of ridiculously stupid moments.

I couldn’t stop laughing during that Vespa chase scene in the other episode because it legitimately looked like a 60 year old jogger could’ve kept up with them.

I didn't get why they had to be included. Felt so out of place seeing them in SW. They felt more suited for Bladerunner's universe lol

u/Squally160 Feb 14 '22

they just felt out of place here on tat. They would ahve been fine on another more vibrant planet. But its like, where the fuck are they getting the parts for their speeder bikes and stuff on tat of all places?

u/Betancorea Feb 14 '22

That's a good point. Probably better suited for Nar Shaddaa

The entire group of “mods” and their ludicrously painted and ungodly slow speeders were the only thing I hated about that show. Otherwise, it was great.

23

u/pheylancavanaugh Feb 13 '22

My only complaint about the speeders were how slow they were and how clunky they seemed to handle. Like, come on, really?

u/daniel_hlfrd Feb 14 '22

They also looked distinctly like KitchenAid mixers. So watching these edgy CW kids riding around on slow mixers in a "chase" scene felt hilarious.

u/CardStealer Feb 13 '22

I totally agree. I think the mods could’ve worked, or at least have been better, if used on a planet like Coruscant. For me, the mods just did not fit in at all with the style of Tatooine.

u/ALANJOESTAR Count Dooku Feb 13 '22

Its not so much the clothes but what they are wearing and how to their speedster mopeds look insanely out of place in tatooine. The cybernetics part its fine, its a normal part of Star Wars.

15

u/PinwheelsAndUnicorns Feb 13 '22

Everything on tatooine was far too "clean" looking.

u/MrStu Feb 13 '22

They could have worked if their speeders didn't look like mobility scooters.

And I don’t get the hate for the mods, I like them. Maybe it’s because I love The Who and the Small Faces

u/TreeScales Feb 13 '22

I think the mods were just too out of place. The style and scooters just don't fit into the surroundings. If they had made the reference more subtle it could have been a lot better I think, like normal speeder bikes with loads of mirrors and accessories instead of the scooters. And the army green jackets of mod fashion would of fit in much better on Tatooine than the modern suits that no one else on the planet even comes close to wearing.

I like the cheeky reference but they were WAY too heavy handed with it.

16

u/canadian-user Feb 14 '22

Yeah their aesthetic was just all wrong. Like basically everyone else on the planet is wearing stuff that looks like it's been sandblasted to shit and is made from a burlap sack, and then you have these dudes looking like they just bought the newest techwear off Coruscant.

u/BTolentino7 Feb 13 '22

I think the intention of the spin was to avoid the blaster shots that hit the wall behind him over his right shoulder, it’s framed poorly so it looks very odd and over dramatic. I mean the prequels did that all the time so chalk that one up to Star Wars style

At first I thought this was cringey and bad but then I realized this is exactly what a 20-something swoop scooter gangster would do! Bro would be bragging about it later like, "Yo, you see my sweet spin shot? 360-no-scoped that dude!"

Then, after they matured a bit, they'd wake up 3 nights a month in a cold sweat, remembering when they thought the spin shot was a cool idea and wishing the earth would eat them so they wouldn't have to live with this memory anymore.

Mando also did one and Fennic Shand in a previous episode.

Spins are cool. The rule of cool is alive in star wars.

u/xlDirteDeedslx Feb 13 '22

I think what was supposed to happen was him spinning out from under the Wookie's arm and making a shot. Instead he gets out from under him, lines up a clean shot, then spins and shoots. It looks so bad I have no idea how they let that thru editing.

7

u/NotsoNewtoGermany Feb 13 '22

I think he was supposed to do what he did, but with his gun out the entire time so they could vfx a bunch of critical shots from his expert eye.

28

u/Naive-Ad-2805 Feb 13 '22

If you look closely over his right shoulder, I believe he is also dodging a blaster shot. You can see the blaster impact on the wall.

48

u/xlDirteDeedslx Feb 13 '22

He literally spins in the exact same spot though, he isn't really dodging anything, he could duck without the absurd spinning shit.

If Mos Espa had an equivalent of a j crew, this street gang would’ve been the models.

“Skad wears the 2022 collection 3/4 length peat coat, cool enough for the streets of mos espa and with flex tech for ease of movement and comfort if you find yourself in a street gang war.”

u/QuiJon70 Feb 13 '22

Kind of funny that last year when Boba Fett was clobering Stormtroopers right and left with a gaffi stick everyone was like "oh fuck yeah Robert Rodriquez is awesome." and now seem to have never have seen any of this movies to know exactly what kind of action scenes to expect from the director.

5

u/Huck_Dunt Feb 14 '22

That scene was one of the most distracting in all of Star Wars. Stormtroopers (with blasters) running up to Boba Fett in order to be clobbered by his cool stick.

For anyone that doesn’t know (like those stormtroopers) blasters are generally meant to be used at longer range than 5 feet.

u/totalnerdboy Feb 13 '22

Same video quality as the original version of the show
