Looking Back At The Phantom Menace

  As we move into this new era of Star Wars, I want to take a look back at the saga films, how my perception of the films have changed over time, and the ever changing canon of Star Wars. Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace, as we all know, was released in May…

I Will Finish What You Started

We are mere weeks away from The Force Awakens and the excitement is palpable.  It seems no matter where you turn there is something Star Wars.  I can’t go a day without hearing some mention of it in the media.  Now for me this is not unusual, I’ve lived my entire life completely immersed in…

Revisiting The Clone Wars

I recently completed a full rewatch of The Clone Wars animated series — watching all the episodes in chronological order, as opposed to the original, broadcast order.  I had watched the show regularly as it aired on Cartoon Network and even saw the film in theaters.  I wanted to go back and revisit the show,…
