Hollywood has been recycling stories that work for ages, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise when you suddenly realize that two very different films could pass as each other at first glance in an alternate reality. But it seems like even knowing this principle doesn’t usually prepare cinephiles for some of the weirdest genre-defying parallels in the industry.
As we leave them to pick their jaws off the floor, two other internet fandoms prepare to take a stand against what they perceive as lackluster storytelling; war of stars fans for the way The Mandalorian overthrew the reunion between Din Djarin and Baby Grogu, and Doctor Who Stans for how Chris Chibnall completely ditched Jo Martin’s Fugitive Doctor despite being the first person of color to portray the titular protagonist in the BBC’s long-running sci-fi series.
This sci-fi classic is basically a remake of a classic western by Clint Eastwood
It’s quite common for action movies to imitate action movies, or for spy thrillers to put a new spin on anything made in the 80’s. The general rule of thumb is to take whatever works conceptually and narratively and remake it with slight changes. But who knew Hollywood’s slick recycling ideas would work across genres? Well that actually seems to be what you can expect from watching Clint Eastwoods plateau drifter and Paul Verhoeven’s classic RoboCop Back to back.
Whovians expected more from the first person of color to portray the Doctor
The introduction of a secret incarnation of the Doctor during Jodie Whittaker’s second run Doctor Who sent shockwaves through the fandom. But a few years and many hours of television later, we still don’t know anything about Jo Martin’s Doctor Fugitive or her origins other than the first showcase in season 12. Returning showrunner Russell T. Davies might want to revive the character for his future stories, but like that As things stand, it may turn out that Martin’s final appearance in The Power of the Doctor for a few seconds as a holographic AI will be Martin’s last.
Some Star Wars fans can’t believe Mando and Grogu are reunited so soon
The farewell at the end The Mandalorian Season 2 seemed pretty definitive, but Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni weren’t ready to double that development with the show’s upcoming third season. Most war of stars Fans had assumed that Din Djarin and Grogu would go their separate ways for at least a season or two, but the creatives must have recognized their predicament when they lost the dynamic between these two characters early in Season 3, and they did then too Boba Fett’s book course-corrected the MandoVerse before a real drop in quality. Not that the fans appreciate that. Well, at least some of them don’t.
