Star Wars Rebels: Vision of Hope Review
0 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on January 23, 2015 under News, Reviews, Star Wars
Over the first ten or so episodes, Star Wars Rebels has introduced many supporting characters beyond the family of Rebels. Its February 2nd episode reunites many of these characters for one of the best episodes yet. The episode opens with showing more of Ezra's Jedi training. Think Luke with the drone on the Falcon, but on a much bigger level. After all, Ezra has more friends that can part... more.

If you've been reading this site (or listening to the podcast) for a while you'll probably remember that both Jason and myself once worked on Star Wars Galaxies, but we were also very hardcore players of it as well. We were hardcore PVPers who would spread the Empire across Tatooine and other planets in the sandbox MMO. That's why when Star Wars: The Old Republic entered Alpha and Beta we hammered... more.

Those who watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. know how great the series has become in its second season, and while Coulson has been part of the Marvel comic universe for a while, it was only a matter of time before Marvel introduced the rest of the Agents in the comics. Marvel's final comic release of 2014 did exactly that with the new S.H.I.E.L.D. comic written by Mark Waid. The result is actually a ... more.

p>When JJ Abrams Star Trek came out in 2009 I, like many others, really liked it. I actually saw it three times in theaters with one showing being on IMAX. Purists had a lot of problems with the movie, but it worked as a fun reboot and the cast nailed the characters perfectly. So there were high hopes for the sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, but unfortunately the movie falls flat on its face at wa... more.

This past May, after seeing The Avengers, I could remember not being overly excited about The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises. After Whedon’s epic, it was hard to imagine a comic book movie in an isolated universe living up to what the Marvel Cinematic Universe was able to accomplish by embracing what made the books so great. Spidey fans were burned three times by Sam Raimi and crew... more.
