EPISODE REVIEW: Transformers Prime: “Darkness Rising, Part 1” (Episode 1)

The new “Transformers” series starts out this week with the very 80s strategy of a five-part miniseries. This is one of those franchises we generally tend to ignore (Yet inexplicably we generally fall all over ourselves for GI Joe), but Republiboy (Age 12) has stepped forward to cover the series for us.



KLASSICS FOR KIDS: “Star Wars Episode VI :The Return of the Jedi” (1983)

The movie was very interesting, I thought. I really couldn’t point out all that many thing that I thought was very good or not terribly good. I think what little CGI there was in the movie could have been improved greatly. The movie was far better than Episode IV, but not as good as Episode V. On a scale of one to ten, I think I’d give it about a six.


CLASSICS FOR KIDS: “Star Wars, Episode V:The Empire Strikes Back” (1980)

[NOTE: This is a review by Republiboy, age 11, who’d never seen Empire Strikes Back before, and didn’t like Star Wars at all. Just for point of reference, his favorite SF movie of all time is "Babylon 5: A Call To Arms."]

I thought this movie was far better than the previous one. I liked C3PO a lot less, however, and Chewie was a lot less entertaining. I enjoyed the sequence on Hoth, I personally feel that was the best part. I really didn’t like any of the things that happened on Deggobah, and Yoda was rather annoying. But I must say, I really enjoyed the movie as a whole.


CLASSICS FOR KIDS: “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” (1977)

Ok, sure, so we all know the classics, the movies that grabbed us when we were young, but it's hard for us to think about them objectively, to recognize that they may have a different effect on the youth of today than they may have back in our day. To that end, this is the first in a series of genre classics to be reviewed by Republiboy (Age 11):
