What if Darth Vader Exploded? (Part Two)

Missed part one? Check it out here. Long story short, how would the Saga change if Darth Vader suddenly died partway through? His subdermal implants that kept him bound to slavery were never removed or addressed again in canon, meaning they could potentially explode at any time. Or perhaps Vader could control them. . .

What if Darth Vader Exploded? (Part One)

Think back to the last time you watched Episode I: The Phantom Menace. We aren’t here to talk about how much you liked or disliked it. It could be 1999, it could be ten minutes ago. I don’t care. Actually, I want to talk about a curious throwaway line. Anakin Skywalker and his mother Shmi are sitting at dinner, giving some insight to their guests Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jar Jar Binks, and Queen of Naboo, Padme Amidala, about life on Tatooine. A sandstorm rustles and wails outside, and then Anakin gives some insight into the cruel methods used to keep slaves in line.

And if your friend was one of those annoying boycotters, don’t lend it to them and explain (perhaps re-explain) how a boycott works!

Definite Article: The Fett-Man Cometh

It’s no secret that I love Boba Fett, and in the spirit of talking about actually enjoying Star Wars instead of nitpicking it to death, I want to talk about the possibilities for Fett’s potential spin-off film!

(In)Definite Article #2: Empire of Hate

I’ll admit it, in the past I’ve been guilty of being a toxic person not unlike the many toxic fans polluting comment sections across the internet. I used to hate the Star Wars prequels because my friends didn’t like them. I used to treat any kind of music I didn’t identify with as worthless trash. And sure it made my friends laugh, but after a while you realize you don’t have as much in common as you first though, aside from a sour taste in your mouth.
