Star Wars Rebels: Lothal Under Seige

Mama Fisi's picture

The Husband kept grousing about how this show has jumped the shark by bringing in Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader.  In actuality, their presence serves as an entre'acte to move the team of the Ghost from Lothal to the Rebel Fleet.

After busting Kanan out of the clutches of the Empire, the Ghost crew repays the Rebels by trying to secure a cargo of military-grade forcefield generators from an Imperial cargo convoy.  They succeed in liberating the cargo, but the generators are not part of it.

The Adventures of Tintin

Mama Fisi's picture

We finally got around to watching this film today.


The plot is that young ace reporter Tintin buys an old ship model, in which is concealed one of three scrolls which give the coordinates to a treasure hidden by an old sea captain. A bad guy is trying to get his hands on all three scrolls, and has Tintin kidnapped, believing he has the scroll on him, but he does not--it had earlier been lifted by a pickpocket, who turns out to be a compulsive wallet-stealer. The wallet is later returned to Tintin by a pair of identical, inept police detectives.

Star Wars Rebels: Vision Of Hope

Alright everybody, repeat after me: IT'S A TWAP!


Way back toward the beginning of this series, a Senator-in-exile from the Old Republic, by the name of Gall Trayvis, was making broadcasts encouraging the nascent Rebellion.  Even then, I could tell that he was actually trying to trick rebels into the clutches of the Empire.

Review: Toy Story That Time Forgot

Pixar's Toy Story franchise continues to impress with its high-quality animation, imaginative plots, and sensitive voice acting.  The latest offering in the series is a Christmas special, "Toy Story That Time Forgot," where the old gang of Woody, Buzz, Trixie, Rex, and Angel Kitty cross paths with a very intense tribe of Battlesaurs during a play date at a neighbor's house.

Star Wars Rebels: Out Of Darkness

This episode featured the two female leads, Sabine and Hera, who until now have been barely getting any screen time, so I had high hopes for it.  Unfortunately this was solidly "meh" from start to finish.


I think they just don't know what to do with Sabine.  In this one, she played the part of impatient, angsty teen daughter against Hera's patient "we tell you what you need to know" mother figure.  About the only plot advancement we get is that Sabine used to attend the Imperial Academy.

TV Series Reviews: Star Wars Rebels "Fighter Flight"

In this episode, Ezra, Chopper, and Zeb get on each other's nerves and threaten to destroy the Ghost with their sparring, so Hera sends them into town for some supplies, including a particular kind of fruit that she knows very well doesn't grow on Lothal.  Ezra and Zeb bag far bigger quarry on this particular snipe hunt.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: Star Trek TOS: Beyond Antares

Republibot 4.0's picture

Yeah, I know I said I wanted to get away from the Big Three of fan film inspirations, but this one is rather interesting. It's a CGI episode stitched together and animated from random bits of original dialog, and completed over three years while the animator was struggling with lymphatic cancer.
