    ★★

    I've never really seen WB disavow a big blockbuster superhero flick as much as they have this one...Batman and Robin has a more prominent acceptance. Back in 2011, I remember that this movie and the video game "Duke Nukem Forever" released the same day, and I ended up avoiding both thanks to the outpouring of revulsion.

    As much bandwidth is chewed up pointing out that Star Wars is a space western, it's really not. Parts of it fit, but then again parts of Star Wars fit equally into Wizard of Oz, Yojimbo, Flash Gordon, Captain Blood, Twelve O'Clock High, you name it. Really, The Mandalorian is the closest Star Wars has gotten to true west, a horse opera in the stars. It's not enough to put gunslingers and lowlifes into a spaceship and have them talk…
