Same as I ever was
By "let him go" I did not mean literally, but emotionally, jsyk.

Which is honestly just kind of unconscionable to me. It's one thing to know intellectually that someone is a monster and foregone. But he saw it with his own eyes. He watched Anikin slaughter innocent people in the streets in terrifying ways, just to try and lure him out. The man murdered hordes of younglings, and he'll keep doing it until he's stopped. And he heard from his own mouth, that he's a lost cause and no longer the man he called a friend/brother. And it's not like Obi-Wan is adverse to killing or anything. It would be one thing if he thought he killed him, only for Darth Sidious to bring him back with some Darth Plageous Sith-magic. But he just kinda leaves him there, as if humiliating him yet again would do anything other than enrage him and cause his rampage through the galaxy to continue.One other notable thing: Obi-Wan absolutely could have finished Vader at the end. He was on his knees, saber down, defenseless and beaten. He just...can't kill his friend. He can leave him for dead, but he can't kill him. Again. Still.
Agreed. Awesome fight. The setting itself was kinda boring, but the dark backgrounds lighting up with their lightsabers was awesome.I liked this climactic duel between Obi-Wan and Vader much more than the one we got in RotS.
I'm not ready to say a spin-off with her is predestined. Because as we've seen with Disney/Star Wars, they're perfectly happy to just sweep their plans under the rug in a heartbeat if it doesn't seem like fans are engaging with their stuff the way they want. But they're definitely laying the groundwork for her to be in a spin-off or sequel in some capacity at the very least. And to echo what others have said, yes she's very intentionally a mirror for Vader, showing that the Dark Side isn't a point-of-no-return, that people can come back from the brink, that Anikin's descent wasn't inevitable, etc. I think it worked well, and I like the character/actress a lot. The only part of it that felt forced, was that it was very nakedly an excuse to get Obi-Wan to interact with a young Luke for easy nerd feelings. Which was obnoxious on a certain level, but god damnit did it work. Obi-Wan deserved it.I really don't know what they were trying to do with Third Sister in this finale, those scenes felt distractingly disjointed from the main event and feel like they were shoehorned in due to some mandate from corporate.
That's incredibly reductive. First, they're corporate security, not the Empire. Second, while the first murder was an accident, the second was not and killing two people was a hugely over the top response to the threat - if it was a real life situation and not space wizard land nobody could be surprised by law enforcement wanting to catch Cassian. It doesn't take a feat of imagination to imagine the exact same events in a series where the "hero" role is reversed. "I'm threatened" -> "I'll murder the threat" is only an acceptable thing in films and war, and there's not even a war here yet.The MC killed some fascist thugs, and the antagonist is a fascist thug. It's not that crazy lol.
I mean, to me you just described Han Solo. Both his film, and just the innate character. But I know I'm a statistical outlier who thought Han was a loser and not the coolest guy everI'm glad we have noir Star Wars. And specifically a messy noir Star Wars with a vulnerable, unglamourous and not "cool" protagonist who has what it takes to win but messes up a lot and is in way in over his head.
No offense, and not to get too political outside of the quarantines for it, but I don't think you know how this whole fascism thing works. The state essentially licensing out policing to corporate entities that are deeply intertwined with the state is fascism 101.That's incredibly reductive. First, they're corporate security, not the Empire.
