We've waited thirty years for this movie, and it still won't be arriving in theatres until December, but Disney's stock jumped when it released a new trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

I just hope it's good.  From what I've seen so far...I'm not too optimistic.


Star Wars Rebels: Fire Across The Galaxy

The season finale of Rebels was satisfyingly exciting.  Even Chopper comes off as a hero.

The crew of the Ghost stages a daring raid on Governor Tarkin's personal Star Destroyer in order to rescue Jedi Kanan, who is being tortured for information by the pasty-faced Inquisitor.  Their plan requires that they steal an Imperial transport ship, which they do thanks to some jumping-flea-fu acrobatics from Sabine.  This sequence was the weakest part of the episode.


Fan Film Friday: Airlords of Airia

Here's a super little steampunk film from Germany that has some really outstanding CGI, as well as being just beautiful to look at.  Before you start thinking there's something wrong with the lipsynching, yes, it's dubbed into English both to reach as many viewers as possible, and because the original German dialog's sound quality was too poor (according to the production notes.)


TV Reviews: Star Wars Rebels, "The Rise of the Old Masters"

In this episode, Kanan tries to teach Ezra the ways of the Force, but it quickly becomes clear that not only is Kanan not a very good teacher, but he may not have been all that good of a student, either.  After all, as Yoda said, "there is no 'try.'"

Losing his temper and almost getting Ezra killed during a particularly complicated excercise, Kanan decides to attempt to break a legendary Jedi Master out of an impregnable Imperial fortress in order to foist the lad off on "the best teacher possible."


MOVIE REVIEW: “Astro Boy” (2009)

I’ll admit right up front that I’m not really familiar with Astro Boy. I know he’s a hugely popular Japanese character, and has been since the early 1950s, I know that there have been many cartoon and manga (or as they call it in Japan, “Comics”) iterations of him over the last half century, and I know that a lot of people are fanatical about him. I’ve even seen a few minutes of cartoons here and there over the years, and I recognized him on a poster in one of the later episodes of Macross/Robotech (In the newstand the three Zentradi spies are running)


Things That Warm Our Hardended Neo-Conservative Hearts: AT-AT Day Afternoon

This dude, Patrick Boivin, is pretty awesome, even if he is a Canadian. He has done a ton of perfectly realized and timed mini-masterpieces that can only warm the most frozen heart.

Video after the jump.
