Attack of the Clones: Reevaluating The Star Wars Prequel

After watching The Clone Wars and Obi-Wan Kenobi, I’m reevaluating Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones with a new review. My initial review ran during the Road to IX but since that time, I feel that the prequels were really enhanced by The Clone Wars. When one watches The Clone Wars, they get more out of the prequels. Adding onto that, Part V of Obi-Wan Kenobi puts the movie into a completely…

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part VI Delivers All The Goods

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part VI is an epic finale that delivers all the goods that any Star Wars fan could have wanted this season. To say that the finale was anything but epic would certainly be an understatement. This episode had everything that I was wanting. Well, it took almost all of the runtime but I am not complaining over here. I heard complaints about the third episode as if nobody thought they were waiting for…

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part V – The Best Episode Yet

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part V delivers its best episode to date in the penultimate episode and sets up what will likely be an explosive finale. Disney learned from its mistake upon launching the series on May 27. This time around, there is a warning to alert viewers about unsuitable images. I’ll get to it soon but given Star Wars history, I’m sure that you can figure it out. I’ve been staying up for launch of every…

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part III – The Halfway Point

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part III marks the the halfway point of the 6-part limited series in the long-awaited Star Wars prequel series. Please be warned ahead of reading that the following contains light spoilers for the newest episode streaming on Disney+. One quick note before I dive into my review: the racist attacks on Moses Ingram have no place in the Star Wars fandom.  For far too many years, people are using “bad writing” to make…

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Hello There, Old Friend

Ewan McGregor steps back into the saddle–er, into the robe–for the new Lucasfilm limited series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, on Disney+. The following is light on spoilers but as is my custom for a show or movie of this nature, I’m using the artwork to separate the rest of my review. While it’s been 17 years in real life, it’s only been ten years since Revenge of the Sith. There was a time when I didn’t think…

Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith

Star Wars: Episode 3 – Revenge of the Sith comes the closest to capturing the original trilogy’s magic as any of the prequel films possibly could. Unlike the original trilogy, Revenge of the Sith is the darkest of the first three films.  There’s a lot riding on the film because it must complete Anakin Skywalker’s (Hayden Christensen) turn to the dark side.  Anakin’s path towards becoming Darth Vader started in the previous film but let’s…

Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones

Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones has the hard part of setting up much of the next film in the trilogy but was terrible in execution. This film had a few things to do.  One is setting up the relationship between Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) and Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman).  The second is coming up with the origins of the Clone Wars, where Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) fought alongside Skywalker.  At some…
