Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Review

star-wars-rebels-season-2-poster-720x1062

Rebels had quite the roller coaster of a season this time around, by which I mean it was pretty up and down but ultimately a great ride. Building on the success of the smaller and more minimalist but thrilling first season, season 2 certainly gave us a load of great episodes but ultimately proved that bigger isn’t always better.

Shiloh Kamrath: A Star Wars Story

So, I suppose I should start at the beginning. I was born on October 23, 1998(that makes me 17 years old by the way), and that is pretty an important factor in my star wars story. I first saw star wars when I was 6 or 7, I really can’t remember when. It’s been such a long time….well maybe not that long, but let’s not gets hung up on that. I remember that me and my friends were trying to decide what to watch and one of them said we should watch star wars(a new hope). Now, I did not want to watch star wars. I mean, I straight up had fit; I was not watching star wars. Enter, my mom, and like most mothers, she knew best. She convinced me that I really should watch the movie. Now, I kind of think she regrets what she did, but too late now for that. Needless to say, I loved it. Lucky for me there were still star wars movies coming out at that point. First, I got the special edition box set of DVD’s for Christmas, and then I watched the prequels. However, over time I slowly got away from star wars. I wasn’t really aware that there was any star wars outside the movies, so there was nothing else out there for me, and as far as I was concerned star wars was doomed to the shelf as “just another good movie”.

Eric J Berry: A Star Wars Story

I just recently turned 40 and I’ve grown up with Star Wars. I am just old enough to have experienced most of it first hand and I began to think about how differently each generation will see and understand Star Wars as a whole. To someone of my generation, the reveal of Darth Vader being Luke’s father was a surprise. To younger fans, it’s always been common knowledge. Different generations have been and will continue to be introduced to Star Wars in different ways. Continue reading

Our First post this week was written by Connor Norton, original post here. Check out his Star Wars Story!


 

Being born in 1995 made me like the star wars prequels  as a child more than the original trilogy.  I used to watch Star Wars mainly in the car, while me and my family were on a trip somewhere. We had a case full of ton of  DVD`s, and I almost always picked Episode 1 0r Episode 2 to watch over the others (Episode 3 hadn’t come out yet).  I would always look at the prints on the DVD`s, and think, I LOVE that movie.  For Episode 1, it was Darth Maul.

Narthax Reviews Rebels

Narthax’s critical take on Star Wars Rebels on a weekly basis.

I’m not canonical. I’m legendary.

Hello all. My name is Henry, commonly known as Narthax around here. The guys at fasterandmoreintense were good enough to invite me onto their podcast a while back to discuss Star Wars figure customizing. We ended up discussing new episodes of Rebels and following this they offered to bring me on as a blog writer and I’m happy to be here!

Owing to life and other reasons however, I was a tad delayed in getting set up around here. My goal was to review each new episode of Rebels as they were released this season, which fortunately I did I just didn’t post them anywhere and saved them for a rainy day. So, at long last here they are, my reviews of season 2’s episodes thus far, and hey we’ve got a new one tomorrow as well so let’s get started. Continue reading
