Rebels Review: Out of Darkness

Mitchell Stein: Star Wars Rebels just can’t stop getting better and better!

Although not really that much happened story-wise in this episode, it still stands as a really superb piece of Star Wars action and story-telling. It raises a minor question which of course is on its way to be answered in a future episode, and it finally shines some light on Sabine and Hera, the two characters who never nearly got enough screen-time. This episode packed a whole lot of awesomeness into twenty-two jam packed minutes.

I don’t think this series has the ability to pick up as easy as The Clone Wars did, and these episodes are a fine proof of that. Regardless of the fact, the writers are working with brand-new characters in this series, and they must create new character situations and development to make these characters shine, and this episode was by far the most impressive in that aspect.

Fans have been waiting to learn a little more about Sabine, other than the small bits of screen-time she made in the other episodes. This episode was clearly about Sabine, and her relationship with the group, and specifically Hera. Sabine feels she isn’t trusted when she discovers Kanan and Hera are being provided with info from a mysterious individual named Fulcrum, who we have yet to find out about.

Sabine allows us some information about her past in the Empire, which wasn’t that much to be honest, but will hopefully build to a fuller story. Regardless of her previous life before joining the Rebel team, I’m just really excited this character is being built up on, and we’re finally seeing some more of these awesome characters. Now that everything has been set up, the writers should be moving forward pretty quickly from here on in.

If I were to describe what exactly happened in this episode, it wouldn’t end up being a very long explanation. To be honest, not that much happened in this episode, but this episode was anything but boring. This week was a wonderful blend of great character development and mystery, combined with some seriously exciting action. Rebels is getting better and better every week… can’t wait to see which direction they’ll be heading in next!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Force Awakens
By Joseph Tavano

It’s time to wake up.

The Force has been sleeping, and you didn’t even know it. This entire time, all that’s happened has been under the guise of a dream. The energy field that binds the universe together is about to rise from its slumber, and what happens next is the contents of a new era in Star Wars.

Wait—how can the Force sleep?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has the makings of the most evocative title this movie franchise has ever presented. There’s a tonal departure here that can’t be ignored. The early sci-fi, pulp-styled titles seen in the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy have shifted to something quite different. Where in the first six films, the titles have described actual characters or groups of characters, the seventh movie is decidedly taking its name from the present state of the universe and a natural phenomenon that will affect everyone.

Rebels Review: Rise of the Old Masters

Rise of the Old Masters is a promising new addition to the future of Star Wars

Mitchell Stein: Following a rather disappointing episode (to me), Star Wars Rebels really scored a home run with this weeks installment Rise of the Old Masters. What I viewed this Monday night is the episode all Star Wars fans were waiting for. Finally, the episode that defined the entire series has arrived.
