The Last Day Without Rumors

Star Wars movie discussion, on Eurobricks

 

The Last Jedi. That will be the title to the Star Wars saga’s eighth episode. The hype for Rogue One was just starting to die down and I could finally roam the internet freely without the fear for spoilers when this news hit us unexpectedly. The title hasn’t grown on me yet, “TLJ” doesn’t have a nice ring to it and I find it a bit overly dramatic, but I do like the contrast it provides with the hopeful “The Force Awakens”. The alleged darker tone of this episode is already shining through in its title, so we’re sure to be in for a heavy ride! The movie will be directed by Rian Johnson, known for 2012’s Looper. Now the rumor shuttle has departed, we have to wait until December 15th of this year to find out which ones were true. Hop aboard in the Star Wars movie discussion topic!

What did you think of the Plot?
Oky: Now that the excitement over Rogue One has started to die down, Star Wars Rebels returns from the winter break and it is bringing along one of the characters from the “Star Wars Story”. Not only that, but we are treated to one of the rare two-parters. However, was that enough to make for a great return? Continue reading

Rebels Review: Visions and Voices

640?cb=20161209220022

What did you think of the Plot?
Oky: When there’s something strange in the Nightsisters lair, who you gonna call? Ezra Bridger! This show certainly knows how to grab your attention right from the start. The opening scene with Ezra being haunted by visions of Maul during a briefing was genuinely creepy and chilling, and so was the following scene where Ezra is nearly tricked into killing a rebel trooper because of those visions. Unfortunately, the rest of the episode wasn’t able to keep up this level of horror despite featuring ghost witches. Continue reading

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Mid-Season Trailer

Finally over the initial excitement of seeing Rogue One? Excellent, then the excitement can start all over again because the mid-season trailer for the third season of Rebels has just been released on the internet. The excitement is about seemingly getting more background information about the aforementioned movie, about seeing nice locations and vehicles, about seeing stories continued we’ve all been waiting to see evolve, about seeing thrilling action and about encountering some more familiar characters. We’ll be getting a lot of awesome action, so let’s hope the character development is of an equally high quality and we’re in for an awesome ride. You still have to contain that excitement for two more days, since the new episodes will start airing on January 7th. In the meantime you can wait for our review of the mid season finale and discuss what you saw in the trailer in the Rebels discussion topic.

Rebels Review: An Inside Man

What did you think of the Plot?
Oky: After the quality of the episodes has been getting lower and lower, we are finally back on track! This episode was full of plot twists, action, and suspense! It was nice to return to Lothal and see that the rebels have inspired the locals so much that they are sabotaging the Imperial factory. Continue reading

Rebels Review: The Wynkahthu Job

640?cb=20161125203602

What did you think of the Plot?
BEAVeR: Whenever there’s an episode featuring Hondo, I don’t expect it to be a super deep and compelling story. I do, however, expect it to be a fun ride full of unexpected twists. And I got an episode that was fun on only a handful of occasions, really quite predictable and did a sloppy attempt at telling us something about the characters. Continue reading
