You may not have known this,but I'm also a huge fan of Star Wars.It is basically my favorite Sci-Fi franchise of all time.
I've been through a lot with this franchise.From watching the Clone Wars series,playing the games,watching the movies,read the books and novels,talk about them,however there is something about it that still bothers me.
Now by saying that there's something wrong with it,you must think that I'm talking about the prequels.Well...yes and no.What I meant is the unfair criticism that they get.
Spoilers lie ahead if you *sigh* still have not seen Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
As you probably know, being a fan of Star Wars, Episode VII: The Force Awakens, was recently released on home media. For me, that means I have now seen it a shameful amount of times. A large part of my love for TFA is desert-scavenger-turned-Jedi Rey. She's pretty awesome. But one question that remains largely unanswered is this: who is Rey, and where did she come from?
Remember in Attack of the Clones, Anakin tells Padme he hates sand? Nobody really understands exactly why he hates sand. Everyone thinks that it was a random statement that shouldn't have been in the movie.
But I see it differently. I see a slave boy who lived in sand all his life, finally freed of it. But his mother, still trapped in the sand, is tortured by a band of Tusken Raiders. When he tried to save her, she died in his arms with sand all around them.
Anakin definitely had a reason to hate the sand. It's quite sad not many people actually understand the...
Fans are waiting with bated breath as the Blu Ray and DVD release of The Force Awakens looms like a gigantic killer planetoid over the horizon, arriving to overpower your home theaters in April 2016.
The film, it goes without saying, was an unqualified success and one of the finest in the franchise, right up there with Episode V. As for the Blu Rays and DVDs, it's a spectacular release, with a massive trove of content for fans to explore. For example, "The Secrets of the Force Awakens" alone is well over an hour of riveting footage.
Old people are great. I love them. You love them. We all love them. But you know who really, really loves old people? The Star Wars movies.
That’s right. Across the seven Star Wars movies that have been released so far, the audience is continually taught that with old age comes wisdom, perseverance, and power. The various elders of Star Wars serve mainly to provide moral guidance to the young, often rash protagonists; at the same time, they often find themselves involved in the story, willing to go beyond just a voice of reason to an active player in the main conflict.
"STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS" (2015) Review
During the fall of 2012, the media and many film fans were stunned by news of filmmaker George Lucas' sale of his production company, Lucasfilm, to the Walt Disney Company. I was flabbergasted. However, this sale led to Disney's plans to continue Lucas' "STAR WARS" movie saga with future releases, television shows, novels and comic stories.
One result of this sale proved to be Disney's new film, "STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS". The first of three movies for the franchise'...
So, my friends and I are nerds. I mean we love Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc. Anyway, I went with one of them to see the seventh movie. It wasn't very good in my opinion (I mean it wasn't as bad as some movies but it was pretty bad). Oh, yeah. If you liked it and are reading this anyway, please don't be offended. I am very critical of movies. I expected a lot out of this film, 'cause I love Star Wars, and I wasn't very impressed. But, seriously if you liked it and still want to read this, don't be offended. That's not why I wrote it. FYI: I'm assuming anyone reading this has seen the movie...
Scout ship Valor on the outskirts of the Republic's boundaries. Routine patrol. Commander Ahsoka Tano.
Ahsoka saw again his face in the darkened saloon. Determined, self-righteous and positively pissing her off. She had left the order, there was no going back. Not for her. Then the scene changed to one more recent. Rex and her sitting in their spot having their usual, after another dragging campaign. He'd leaned over his empty mug, staring into it as if by will he could refill it again. Eyebrows furrowing he'd frowned. " I hear there's a sweet post on Alderon." She'd...
Deep in the ancient keep, in the Pathbourne's Chamber sat a set of triplets on their thrones. Each putting forth their energies into the summoning stone. One such member was Sota Slayer. Her bare shoulders revealing the wrapped around imprint of a silver fox. Suddenly the stone revolted against the energies, the back lash of power stunning them momentarily. Sota looked to where her twin brother Clever should have been sitting.
"No!" Draca and Sota cried in unison, Draca molting into her dragon form as they screamed. Sota catching one of her sister's dangling head tails as she flew up...
