Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Animated Movie Review

Star Wars is a movie, game and cartoon franchise which was created by George Lucas. “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” represents the original version of the title and features some unique characteristics. Instead of being a live action motion picture, it is animated. Being a continuation of an earlier cartoon series exploring the Star Wars universe, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” can be thought of as a preview of future episodes and animations to be shown on the Cartoon Network TV series poised to be launched in the Autumn season. Here is more about the movie.

Clone Wars

Structure and voice actors

Upon beginning playback, the Star Wars logo greets you as the opening score composed by John Williams welcomes you into the futuristic, fantasy universe created by George Lucas. The movie features a plethora of A-list voice actors. Matt Manter voices Anakin Skywalker, Catherine Taber voices Padme while Obi-Wan Kenobi is voiced by James Arnold Taylor. Count Dooku is given life by Christopher Lee while the legendary Samuel L. Jackson gives voice to Mace Windu. The PG movie is directed by Dave Filoni and has a trio of star screenplay writers.


The main story in the movie depicts events that happened between the live action movies, “Episode II: Attack of the Clones” and “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith”, The Republic’s access to the Galactic Rim is tremendously limited by war with the Separatists. Interestingly, the fate of the Republic rests upon its military might and maintaining friendly relations with Jabba the Hutt. Unfortunately, the latter part is complicated because Jabba’s child has been kidnapped, allegedly by a Jedi.

Anakin Skywalker is tasked with finding the child. He has a new pupil, Ahsoka Tano to help him in his quest. Furthermore, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are tasked with leading the Republic on an attack against the Separatists.

Quality of animation and story

While earlier Star Wars cartoon series had high-quality animation, that which is done in this movie is less than satisfactory. The characters’ hair seems molded using Play-Doh. Furthermore, their body movements are erratic and dialogue comes from barely-moving lips. This is a clear indication that the studio did not take enough time to animate the movie properly.

There are obvious holes in the story that a child would not notice but are irritating to an adult Star Wars fan. For example, all the battles occur on the same, wide city street. The studio did not want to use the money for creating sceneries, backdrops, and backgrounds. Furthermore, the plot twists are weak if anything. For example, Anakin Skywalker and Tano get behind the Separatists’ force field by hiding in a box and then running every once in a while until they were through. While it may seem ingenious to a child, an adult wold wonders how they could see where they were going. All in all, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” has obvious weaknesses in its story and animation too.

“Star Wars: The Clone Wars” is a feeble attempt at maintaining a cartoon series of the Star Wars story. There are holes in the plot and characters such as Yoda get tiring as you watch. The movie is great for kids but as an adult Star Wars fan, you would have to lower your standards of quality to watch this one.

Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi – Movie Review

A long time ago in the past far, far away. A bit of the future into the past, Return of the Jedi, is the third and last movie from the original Star Wars Trilogy, released on spring back in 1983. This was the first movie ever to use high definition audio and visual effects, due to this it is considered a masterpiece of the Seventh Art, perhaps George Luca’s Magnum Opus. After sixteen years, in 1999, the saga continued but in a retrospective way, a new trilogy, a prequel from the original one, telling the story of the life of Anakin Skywalker, best known as the fierce and dreadful
Darth Vader.


A Brief Summary

In Return of the Jedi, the story continues the plot from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Han Solo had been taken into a Carbonite Imprisonment, Luke Skywalker along with Princess Leia will try to rescue him from the hands of the Crime Chief Jabba the Hutt, the big toad-like alien from Planet Tatooine, to endeavour this dangerous task, the duo will have the support of some old friends, Solo’s loyal partner Chewbacca, the smart droids C-3PO. And R2-D2 completing the group with Lando Calrissian. After a tense battle against Jabba the Hutt’s guards and mercenaries, Luke and his friends finally get to free Han Solo. Afterwards, Luke take the course to Dagobah where he reunites with an agonizing Yoda while the others flee to join the Rebel Alliance. Before dying Yoda tells Luke, Darth Vader is his father and that he is not alone because he has a sibling, and Luke is finally aware Leia is his twin sister, what is later confirmed by Obi-Wan Kenobi spirit.

Meanwhile, The Rebel Alliance got the information that the Empire is building a new and more powerful Death Star protected by an energy shield from a generator located at the Planet Endor’s moon, in order to send starfighters to destroy the new Death Star the generator had to be deactivated. Han, Luke and Leia travel to Endor moon but Luke is taken by Darth Vader to the Death Star to reunite with the Emperor who tries to turn him into the dark side, but fails and start a dueling with Vader, defeating him, the Emperor encourage Luke to kill his father but he refuses, in wrath the Emperor tortures Luke and Anakin good side finally emerge saving his son, and dying afterwards. In the meantime Leia and Han join forces with the Ewoks, native people from the moon to defeat the Imperial forces in the moon finally taking the shield down.

Lando Calrissian piloting the Millennium Falcon is leading the Rebel’s fleet to destroy the Death Star which is a success as the protection from the shield is not longer activated. luke scapes taking Anakin’s body with him, just minutes before the blast and reunite with his sister Leia and Han Solo on Endor’s moons to celebrate the defeat of the Galactic Empire.

Interesting facts:

The battle on Endor’s Moon, between the united force of its primitive people, the tiny Ewoks, and the Rebels against the Imperial Forces was inspired on the Vietnam War, in which the natives from Vietnam defeated the forces of the United States Army, even though the latter were stronger and had more advanced weapons.

The original title was Revenge of the Jedi but was changed because Jedi’s spirit is not vengeful and do not fit with Jedi peaceful and merciful belief.

Return of the Jedi had a very good public reception over 80% positive commentaries. From the original trilogy this film has the most thrilling scenes, The Sarlacc battle, the speeding bike chasing and last but not least, Darth Vader and Luke lightsaber epic dueling, that will forever last in the minds of all those around the world that had watched this marvelous saga.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back : Movie Review

Star Wars 5

“The Empire Strikes Back” is the best of three Star Wars films, and the most intriguing. After space musical show gladness of the first film, this one dives into haziness and even misery and surrenders all the more totally to the hidden riddle of the story. It is a direct result of the feelings blended in “Empire” that the whole arrangement goes up against a mythic quality that reverberates back to the first and ahead to the third. This is the heart.

The film was made in 1980 with full information that “Star Wars” had turned into the best motion picture ever. In the event that corners were cut in the main film’s financial plan, no cost was saved in this one: It is a visual party from start to finish, a standout amongst the most visionary and imaginative of all movies.

Totally separated from the story and the plot, the film merits seeing basically for its sights. Not behind the scenes of room fights in Spider-Man , which are pretty much standard (there’s nothing here to coordinate the rushing pursue through the high dividers of the Death Star). However, for such sights as the blundering, elephantlike Imperial Walkers (was ever a weapon more unrealistic?). Or on the other hand for the Cloud City, on its tower high in the sky. Or then again for the substance of an animal named Yoda, whose articulations are as persuading as a human’s, and as inconspicuous. Or on the other hand for the vertiginous statures that Luke Skywalker dangles over, after almost diving to his passing.

There is a liberality in the creation outline of “The Empire Strikes Back.” There are the astounding sights there before us, as well as bounty more toward the edges of the screen, or wherever the camera turns. The entire universe of this story has been conceived and built such that we’re not especially mindful of sets or impacts – there’s so *much* of this world that everything appears to be consistent. Consider, for instance, an early scene where an Empire “probe droid” is let go upon on the ice planet Hoth. It detonates. We’ve seen that bunches of time. In any case, at that point, hot bits of it shower down on the snow in the frontal area, in delicate, wet thuds. That is the sort of detail George Lucas and his group lives for.

There is another minute. Yoda has quite recently sent Luke Skywalker into a dim piece of the woods to go up against his fate. Luke says an overcome goodbye. There is a slice of R2-D2 spinning and beeping. And after that a slice back to Yoda, whose face mirrors a progression of feelings: Concern, trouble, a trace of pride. You know mentally that Yoda is an animal made by Frank Oz in a Muppet shop. Be that as it may, Oz and Lucas were not substance to make Yoda reasonable. They needed to make him a decent on-screen character, as well. Furthermore, they did; in his scope of insight and feeling, Yoda may really give the best execution in the motion picture.

The most exceedingly awful, I’m apprehensive, is Chewbacca’s. This character was tossed into the principal film as window dressing, was never thoroughly considered, and thus has been saddled with one outward appearance and one distressed howl. Considerably more could have been finished. How might you be a space pilot and not have the capacity to convey in any important way? Does Han Solo truly comprehend Chew’s tedious commotions? Do they have long talks now and then? Don’t bother. The second motion picture’s story proceeds with the adventure set up in the principal film. The Death Star has been annihilated, yet Vader, obviously, got away, and now orders the Empire powers in their command against the Rebels. Our saints have a mystery base on Hoth, however, escape it after the Empire assault, and afterward, the key characters split up for parallel stories. Luke and R2-D2 crash-arrive on the planet Dagobah and Luke are mentored there by Yoda in the methods for the Jedi and the energy of the Force. Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and C-3PO sidestep Empire catch by concealing their ship on display and after that escape to the Cloud City, administered via Lando (Billy Dee Williams), an old buddy of Han’s and (we take in) the first proprietor of the Millennium Falcon, before an unfortunate card amusement.

There are a few diverting subplots, one including Han’s effortlessly injured male sense of self, another about Vader’s talent of issuing sudden and lethal downgrades. At that point comes the extremely important occasion of the arrangement. Can there be a man alive who does not know (perused no further in the event that you are that individual) that Luke finds Darth Vader is his dad? However, that isn’t the occasion. It comes after their extended (and to some degree complicated) laser-sword battle when Luke tumbles to his passing as opposed to living to be the child of Vader.

He doesn’t pass on, obviously (there is a third motion picture to be made); he’s spared by a type of chute despite everything I don’t see, just to dangle underneath the Cloud City until he saves, and a conclusion that lone by sheer exertion of will doesn’t have the words “To be proceeded with” superimposed over it.

Get Out: A horror comedy turned on its head

“Get Out” may become one of the best films ever made dealing with current issues that the country is facing. The film directed by Jordan Peele turns the political conversation of racism and African-American into a massive horror thriller flick. The film has received praise from millions of people.

The film blew up in the box office and shot up to the No. 1 film during its release. It delivered a giant leap forward for the African American community in terms of the film industry. The film was originally dreamed up during the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries. The film focuses on the racism that is hidden underneath a white liberal family and is told through the story of a young African American who is visiting his white girlfriend Rose. The film reveals down the road that, the rich White family is kidnapping and brainwashing African-Americans into forced servitude.

Chris, Rose’s boyfriend attempts to make conversation with the only other black man in the area but is shot down as the man has lost all cultural ties to him. “Get Out” allows viewers to hope for the best when it comes to Rose and Chris’ relationship. We start to hope that Rose will stand up for Chris. As the film progresses, we begin to realize the true nature of Rose and what she stands for. The film has become a deep study of society.

The film which had a $4.5 million budget turned into a massive $250 million dollar gain worldwide. While the film may take a deep look into the experience of African Americans, it still has comedic moments throughout the film. Chris experiences some funny phone conversations which lessen the tension in the film. Most fans coming in were expecting the film to be a comedy, because of Peele’s comedic background. It’s become an edgy film while maintaining its comedic roots. Both horror and comedy provoke a physical reaction from viewers alike. Chris is eventually thrown into a big family picnic, where he is surrounded by all white people, except for a single Asian and one black man. Chris gets uncomfortable as the family’s friend begins to pepper him with questions.

Get Out is definitely a movie worth watching, even if comedy-horror films are not your style. It’s a film that gives the viewers a look into how Peele interprets the reality of the African American community’s experience in this country over the years. This is definitely one of Jordan Peele’s greatest works even including his comedy. It is a movie that will be relevant for years to come. It is a film that is not afraid to tackle the social issues, many feel too nervous to discuss. This film has probably made Jordan Peele one of the best directors in the past few years, he was not afraid to tackle a controversial subject and managed to frame in such a way that people were able to laugh but also look into the issues for themselves. Jordan Peele should be praised for his masterpiece Get Out.

What is the story about?

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, 15-year-old high school sophomore, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) lives with his Aunt Mary (Marisa Tomei) in Queens. He returns home after a thrilling experience alongside the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, in which Tom Holland’s spidey made his first debut. It’s now a few months after that battle at Berlin Airport, and Peter starts to embrace his role as Spider-Man under the watchful eye of his mentor, Tony Stark (a role that Robert Downey Jr. plays so well he could probably do it in his sleep!)

Peter battles to fall back into his normal, everyday routine because he is preoccupied, eager to prove himself as more than just the friendly neighbourhood hero. He is anxious to show his mentor that he can be a valuable member of the team. Unfortunately for Peter, Tony flat-out refuses to involve him in any more superhero stuff. He is more concerned with keeping his young protege safe and sound, out of harm’s way.

Peter hates being side-lined, and so every night he goes out looking to stop crime around the neighbourhood. It isn’t long before he comes face to face (or should we say face to mask) with trouble in the form of sinister villain Vulture, convincingly played by Michael Keaton. When Vulture, whose real name is Adrian Tommes, threatens everything Peter holds dear, Spider-Man must put his powers to the ultimate test.

Spider-Man: Homecoming – The Good

A large part of this film’s success is thanks to Tom Holland, who really shines in his role as Marvel’s first YA superhero. He is gawky, geeky and eager as Peter Parker, with a certain teen innocence that makes you think this movie should have been called ‘Spider-Boy’. He is likeable as the dutiful, imploring teen who is trying to fill his role as a saviour, while at the same time navigating the baffling business of being a teenage boy – school, exams, bullies, girls… Spider-Man’s stories are always about persevering, finding the strength within yourself and being brave – this movie is no different. It is funny, clever and true to the Spider-Man spirit.

A fun, tween-friendly take on one of Marvel’s most popular characters

Marvel has come close to giving us a superhero who would look right at home on the Disney Channel. They did an extremely good job of portraying the young Spider-Man as a down-to-earth person who is just like everyone else. Because this is not an origin story (thank the heavens), the director, Jon Watts gets right to the action but keeps it on the genial surface. Although the web-slinging teenage Peter finds himself surrounded by peril and danger a lot of times, there isn’t as much violence and death as we see in most other Marvel movies.

Peter’s teachers, classmates, best friend, and crush are cast in a refreshingly diverse way, which brings a certain reality to Peter’s life. Also, the dynamic of Peter’s relationship with mentor Tony Stark brings the aspect of true mentorship to the Marvel Universe.

Spider-Man: Homecoming: The Bad

  • There are times when the film plot doesn’t have a clear trajectory.
  • There is no real fall-out, except when Stark took back the Spider-Man suit from Peter
  • The villainous plot is pretty much bare bones.
  • It’s hard to figure out what Toome’s master plan is – if he even has one (although the movie does have a really mind-blowing twist when Vulture shows up where you would least expect him!)

Our Verdict

All in all, the appeal for Peter Parker as young Spider-Man comes from his determination to keep getting up after each fall in his pursuit of valour. A lot of people worldwide were understandably apprehensive about another Spider-Man reboot, but this film has proved to be Marvel’s best Spider-Man movie in 13 years. Although most would agree that no Spider-Man movie comes close to the greatness of Spider-Man 2, Homecoming definitely swings right up to its face!
