Star Wars Rebels: Out Of Darkness

This episode featured the two female leads, Sabine and Hera, who until now have been barely getting any screen time, so I had high hopes for it.  Unfortunately this was solidly "meh" from start to finish.


I think they just don't know what to do with Sabine.  In this one, she played the part of impatient, angsty teen daughter against Hera's patient "we tell you what you need to know" mother figure.  About the only plot advancement we get is that Sabine used to attend the Imperial Academy.

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

Mama Fisi's picture

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."

Time Story Story Time: The What If Scenario

While I am waiting to see what happens in the next issue of "The Star Wars," I got to thinking about how the world would be different if Lucasfilm had gone with the story as it appears in the original draft.  Personally, this story is so boring that I can't imagine that it would have made so much as a ripple in the pop culture, never mind the tsunami that "Star Wars" created.  The film would not have lasted the summer, and George Lucas would be known as "the director of 'American Graffiti.'"

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Star Wars Detours

Okay, this prrrrrobably doesn't count as a fan film, because it's produced by Lucasfilm Ltd.  And since it's been cancelled (or more optimistically, "shelved until further notice") it's probably a waste of everyone's time to tease you with it.  But I giggled a lot when I watched the trailer, and since my job here is to amuse you folks, here's "Star Wars: Detours" from the guys behind the Robot Chicken parodies.  Ah, what might have been...

FAN FILM FRIDAY:Princess Leia joins the Disney Princesses

This clever musical number (yes, it is a musical. A Disney-esque musical) welcomes Princess Leia to the ranks of the Disney Princesses.

Whether you think the Disney acquisition of LucasFilm is a good idea or a bad one, there's a lot of wit and charm (and cheap jokes) here....

REMEDIAL SF 101: Lilo & Stitch

Just to clarify--if it's got space aliens in it, it's science fiction.

Which brings us to Lilo & Stitch.

What, you don't think so? "It's a Disney movie!" you protest. Well, try this on for fit, Thomas:

A genetically-engineered space alien designed to be an unstoppable force of destruction escapes its prison and steals a rocketship, crash-landing on Earth, where it is befriended in spite of itself by a lonely little girl who thinks it's a dog. Her patience and faith in him change him from a rotten little monster into a heroic figure as he saves the girl from the aliens who had been sent to recapture him.

Sure sounds like science fiction to me. And as an added bonus, there's hula.
