The much publicized upcoming link got me thinking about the optimal viewing order for the bituin Wars saga. The logical approach is to view the pelikula in episodic order (which is how Cinemax plans to air it). But I'm not so certain that this is the best way to watch bituin Wars.
What follows is a rundown on the only four *viable* ways to view the bituin Wars saga that I can think of. Sure there are other viewing orders, but these are the only ones that make sense from the standpoint of storytelling and continuity.
Method 1: sa pamamagitan ng Order of Episode
This approach is clearly the viewing order intended...
Colonel Russo and the rest of his squad landed just outside of Los Ingles, but the Colonel broke his leg.
Colonel Russo: *Sighs* At least we were able to avoid the swamps. Rebel Doctor: Can you walk? Colonel Russo: Maybe. It would be easier if I had something to lean on. Rebel 55: Here Colonel. *Gives him a stick* I took this off a branch from a tree. It should be long enough for you. Colonel Russo: *Takes the stick* It is. I appreciate that soldier. Let's move.
Anthony got free from the tree, but he still couldn't find Colonel Russo, or the rest of his team.
Salope's only weapons were several charges in a bag. The others that came along with her hid in a palumpong as she tried to get rid of two stormtroopers standing on guard.
Salope: *Walking towards the stormtroopers* Stormtrooper 69: *Turns around* Hey, what are you doing? Salope: Crossing the river. I'm trying to get back to my farm, over there. Stormtrooper 53: That farm's been abandoned for years. You're under arrest for trespassing. Salope: *Swings her bag, and knocks out a stormtrooper* Stormtrooper 53: *Shoots Salope in the chest* Republic Soldier 30: *Shoots the stormtrooper* Alright, get the explosives,...
The Rebels, and Republic were getting close to Naboo.
Anthony: *Sitting on a box* Early: You know which tabing-dagat you've been assigned to? Anthony: Oh I'm not storming any of the beaches. I'm going with Colonel Russo's squad to capture Los Ingles. We're going to keep the enemy from getting reinforcements down to the beaches. Early: Good luck Anthony. Anthony: And may the force be with you too.
Stop the song
Wedge: *Talking to a pilot on a hologram* We're in postion. Ready when you are. Pilot: Yes sir.

Orrian: When will you be back General? General Veers: In four days. I'm heading to Kinyen to celebrate my wife's birthday. Faust Jörgenstien is in charge until I return. I want this to be crystal clear to everyone else. Orrian: I will make sure that it is General. General Veers: Thank you Lesden. Hopefully I will be back before the Rebel invasion.
Plans were still being made in Coruscant.
Rebels: *Sitting with Republic Generals* Rebel Sargent: *Walks into the room: Gentlemen, Luke Skywalker. Luke: *Walks into the room* Rebel General: Commander, the weather...
Gator walked into a Republic officer's club. He looked upset.
Gator: *Sits at the bar* Waiter: Your usual Captain? Gator: Yes. Michael: *Walks over to Gator* Hey, how did it go? Gator: Our attack run? Michael: Yeah, did you kill lots of Tie Pilots? Gator: I did, but we Nawawala Honday. Michael: What happened to him? Where is he? Gator: In the middle of space, floating lifelessly around the galaxy.
Another Republic officer started playing a song on a piano: link
Michael: I don't understand. What happened to him? Gator: He put his mask on, and his oxygen tank when his cockpit was shot open, but he wasn't able...
One of the Rebels named Alan Nawawala all of his money from a crap game, and was going around a big room with lots of beds. He was desperately trying to get madami money from one of his friends.
Alan: Hey, can you lend me a hundred credits? Rebel 32: No. Alan: *Walks to another bed* What about you? Rebel 59: I don't have any credits to spare. Alan: *Climbs on tuktok of another bed* Can you spare me 50 credits? Rebel 49: Buzz off, I'm trying to read a book. Alan: *Climbs down* 25 credits? Anything. *Walks over to his friend Paul* Paul: Alright lucky dice, let's do this. *Rolls the dice* Seven!! Rebels: *Cheering,...
Coruscant, one of 678 Rebel barracks. It was raining, and the thousands of soldiers in the barracks were getting lunch.
Rebel Cook: *Serving pagkain to the soldiers* Keep the line moving. Take a lid. Silverware is to the left of the lids. Rebel Soldier 53: You expect us to eat this slop again? Rebel Cook: I don't care what you do Mack. Eat it, throw it out, do whatever you want with it. I only get paid to do one thing, and that's cooking. You're holding up the line. Rebel Soldier 53: *Leaves*
Outside, a few of the Rebels were enjoying the rain.
Anthony: *Yawning* Early: Didn't you get any sleep last...
Naboo, six months before the events of The Empire Strikes Back.
Human 49: Attention Naboo. Ceci est un message important. La rébellion prévoit une invasion. Ils nous aideront à sortir l'empire de notre planète. (Attention Naboo. This is an important message. The Rebellion is planning an invasion. They will help us push the empire out of our planet.)
Meanwhile, far from Yavin 4, hundreds of Mon Calamari Starships were travelling with blockade runners, Rebel Transports, U-Wings, Y-Wings, and...
"STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII - THE LAST JEDI" (2017) Review
Following the success of the Disney Studios' first hit bituin WARS film, "STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS", I had assumed that producer-director J.J. Abrams would helm the susunod chapter in the franchise's Sequel Trilogy. I was eventually surprised to learn that Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, hired writer-director Rian Johnson to both write and direct "EPISODE VIII".
My positive reaction to the news about Johnson being hired sa pamamagitan ng Lucasfilm originated with my reaction to his 2012 film, "LOOPER". I found Johnson's 2012 film to...
The tank was still in front of the bank. The driver thought the coast was clear, until this happened.
Kelly: *Walks out onto the kalye from one of the buildings to the left* Big Joe: *Walks in from the right* Oddball: *Following Big Joe* Imperial 57: *Turns the toresilya towards the three Rebels* Kelly: *Holding an A280C* Big Joe: *Holding an A280C* Oddball: *Moves back part of his coat, revealing a kaluban ng baril carrying an SE14C*
The three of them started to walk slowly towards the tank. The driver still had the tank's big gun pointed at them, but was curious to see what they had planned.
Over at the bridge. Lieutenant Olara and his men were still fighting Imperials while disassembling their bridge, until they saw the sight of General Rancor.
Lieutenant Olara: What the hell is a General doing here? Rebel Soldier: *Stops the Metra near the bridge* General Rancor: *Gets out, and looks at Lieutenant Olara* You are to put everything back to the way it was, so I can tumawid this river! Lieutenant Olara: Out there? With all those Stormtroopers? General Rancor: There's a group of bravo soldiers, real patriots! Unlike you, they're not afraid of those hundreds of Imperials. Lieutenant Olara:...
Cowboy, and Little Joe climbed the kampanilya tower, and were right susunod to the bells.
Kelly: *On Oddball's tank with an RT97* Cowboy, you guys ready? Cowboy: We are in positiion. Kelly: We won't start moving in until you two start ringing those bells. Cowboy: *Watching the Imperials* Little Joe: Wait for it. Cowboy: *Waiting a few seconds* Now.
Captain Smith: Gentlemen, as of this moment, all Imperials have been pushed away from Coruscant. We've done it. This planet is now ours! Pilots: *Cheering* Mary: *Walks over to Smith, and hugs him* I want you to have this. *Holding a box for the Captain* You're being promoted. Captain Smith: *Opens the box, and sees his Major badge* Thank you. Mary: Don't thank me, thank the General, but I would like to take you out to dinner. *Kisses Smith*
The song fades away as the other pilots cheer. Meanwhile on Chevrelium, things were not so pleasant.
General Capta: Kenobi, you're free to return to Tatooine. Those Imperials won't be giving us anymore trouble. Mary: They will, but we can handle it from here. Obi-Wan: Good. Although I'm leaving, the force will be with you. Always.*Walks away*
Ten bituin Destroyers were approaching the planet. They were joined sa pamamagitan ng fifteen Victory 2-Class Frigates.
Lieutenant Von Hapen: Okay everyone, for General Kar! He's back on Chevrelium with Alaine, and the Colonel. Don't disappoint them. Imperial Trooper: Launching all fighters! Press the attack!
Tie Fighters were joined sa pamamagitan ng Bombers, Reapers, Strikers and Landing...
With that comment Oron advanced on the mayor's daughter. Tyran pulled the trigger putting the bullet firmly into the knave's shoulder joint."You would do well to remember in whose house you are in. Rose please get this boy a napkin, his blood is getting on the good rug. On his way out of course and the gifts, will be sent back." Oron's face that had been beet red moments before went pale white. Tyran sighed. "Come boy no one is that stupid. When a woman says something like that you know its over." Rose took the opportunity to dig the cloth napkin deep into Oron's wound. Receiving a satisfactory...
General Kar held a meeting. Over 50 pilots attended the meeting.
General Kar: Here is the new plan to take over Coruscant. We will have three frigates enter the planet in an area where they won't be spotted. Fifteen pilots will parachute out of the frigates, and walk to the enemy air base. You will sabotage their ships, kill some of their pilots, then steal some of their ships to get back. That way, they won't be prepared for the susunod wave of frigates that come in. Pilots: Yes sir. *Walking away to the frigates* Alaine: *Walks into the room* General Kar: Any word on Max? Alaine: He's heading back...
Cantina Band: *Playing music* People: *Dancing* Other People: *Drinking* Lieutenant Von Hapen: *Pulls out an SE14-C, and fires once at the ceiling*
Everyone stopped what they were doing, except for the band.
Lieutenant Von Hapen: *Shoots one of the band members* Band Members: *Stop playing their music* Lieutenant Von Hapen: We are in need of pilots. Who would like to volunteer? Cantina Owner: We are not intimidated sa pamamagitan ng you Imperial scum! Lieutenant Von Hapen:...
