Ahsoka answers some questions in the season finale but ends on a cliffhanger, which sets up another season or Dave Filoni’s movie. It more or less had to end this way. Obviously, there are questions that I get into below the photo. However, Dave Filoni left some room in there for some very happy surprises for Star Wars Rebels fans. Maybe, maybe not. I guess it depends on having a certain point of view as…"Ahsoka: Part 8 – The Jedi, The Witch, and The Warlord"
Ahsoka treks closer towards the end of the season with its penultimate episode showing that Dave Filoni knows what he is doing. Last week saw Ezra Bridger’s (Eman Esfandi) long overdue reunion with Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo). This week more or less started where last week left off. But first, General Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) must answer on Coruscant for her use of New Republic resources. Hera and the Senate have not seen…"Ahsoka: Part 7 – Dreams and Madness"
Long have Star Wars Rebels fans waited for the sixth episode of Ahsoka to make its Disney+ premiere after years of needing answers. I’ll have a lot more to say about this episode under the photo. But for right now, I can say it is everything that Rebels fans could have wanted. Well, almost everything. Some faces are not in the episode but that’s only because they didn’t serve the story. If you have not…"Ahsoka: Part 6 – Far, Far Away"
Leave it to Dave Filoni to deliver one of the best Ahsoka episodes of the season as Part 5 offers a blast from the past in many ways. The fifth episode answered a lot of burning questions. First and foremost, were we getting Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen). The answer to this question is something that I will get to in a moment. It’s going to be pretty spoilery below the photo so…"Ahsoka: Part 5 – Shadow Warrior"
The fourth part of Star Wars: Ahsoka gets audiences closer to the back half of the season with a shocking cliffhanger that speaks for itself. Spoiler warning: Do not read without watching tonight’s episode. With the way that this episode ends, everyone is going to be tuning in next week. If you haven’t started on Ahsoka yet, now is the time to do so. And yes, you’re going to want to watch a certain episode…"Ahsoka: Part 4 – Fallen Jedi"
The third episode of Ahsoka continues a trend that dates back to The Mandalorian with the series having inconsistent run times. Three episodes into the series and this episode doesn’t even reach 40 minutes in length. Factor in the recap, end titles and credits and the episode barely runs a half hour long, if at all. It’s an unfortunate trend in the franchise at the moment. While the episode features some good action sequences, I…"Ahsoka: Part III – Time to Fly"
As Ahsoka launches on Disney+, Star Wars Rebels fans will finally have closure with the search to bring Ezra Bridger home. Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) continues the search that she started in Star Wars Rebels and continued in The Mandalorian. Where is Grand Admiral Thrawn? The moment that Ahsoka utters Thrawn’s name in season 2 of The Mandalorian was the moment that every Star Wars Rebels fans knew: Dave Filoni didn’t forget about us. Even…"Ahsoka: Star Wars Rebels Fans Will Get Closure"
Mary Queen of Scots may span a few years of the queen’s life but actress Saoirse Ronan delivers a commanding performance as Scottish royalty. Saiorse Ronan is proving to be an unstoppable force as an actress. Her role as the late Scottish Queen proves to be no exception. While her performance is great, my only beef with the film is how they don’t really bother aging the queen in appearance. Mary arrives back in Scotland…"Mary Queen of Scots: Fit For A Queen"
Bad Samaritan is a thriller in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock. What Dean Devlin has done with the direction of the film is make a Hitchcock film for the 21st century. Sean Falco (Robert Sheehan) and Derek Sandoval (Carlito Olivero) use their employment as valets for Nino in order to run a burglary scheme while patrons eat their meals. It’s all fun and game until Sean happens upon the home of Cale Erendreich (David Tennant). It’s…"Bad Samaritan: A Hitchcockian Thriller"
