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.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Crusade Wars"

As I said last week, I've long lamented the lack of B5 fanfilms. Technically speaking, this isn't one, it's a Crusade fanfilm, oddly enough. This is a neat little piece that didn't get nearly the credit or attention it deserved, and there's something charming about it being done entirely in oldschool stop motion.

A couple of the people connected with last week's "Babylon Park" series went off on their own and made this one, hence my 'vaguely related not-quite spinoff' comment last Friday.

FAN FILM FRIDAY: "Blackstar Warrior"

If you're nothing at all like me, you've probably spent a lot of time wondering about Lando Calrisian's backstory. And if you're even slightly LESS like me, you've probably spent a good deal of time wishing someone would explore Lando's past in an early-seventies grindhouse blacksploitation format. Well, my totally incomprehensible friend, today is your lucky day.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS reviews

Republibot 3.0's picture

Star Wars: The Clone Wars started its third season tonight, and I guess we really should be covering it for the site. Alas, our resources are stretched as far as they can go at the moment, and we really don't have the personnel to handle another show right at this moment.

Unless of course *you* would like to step up and review it for us?

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.

Darth Vader: Evil Incarnate, or the trivialization of a legitimate psychological disease?

Republibot 3.0's picture

One aspect of Science Fiction Fandom is that we’re never above belaboring any point, no matter how trivial, in our mad quest to find social acceptance and relevance. It could be that we geeks are a deeply needy people based on our ghetto-ized standing in artistic circles, or it could just be that we hope it’ll get people to stop punching us in the face. Whatever the reason, here’s yet another immediately-tedious example:

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):
