Bounty & DARTH MAUL RETURNS!

I do not think this one will blow me off, but I'm looking forward to it nonetheless.

Moral
"Who we are never changes, who we think we are does."
Something to puzzle on :) I like it :D

Official Description
"An aimless Asajj Ventress joins a team of bounty hunters under the leadership of young Boba Fett. On an alien world, they undertake a dangerous but profitable mission that tests the limits of their skills, and the strength of Asajj's character."

I thought Boba was in prison? He escaped like Obi-Wan did? Well... gotta see!

Pictures
There's going to be action for sure :)

I like that creature :) And I see the team coming...

Hey, that man sitting got a sense of humor :D

I like Boba more with hair. The droid at the back looks like Grevious Magna stink tinny :)

I'm glad Ventress made the stand, though I don't know why I am :D

********************

Now.... Eeeeeeeeeeeekkkk!!! Darth Maul returns! Though it kind of spoils the moment in TPM, I still can't wait for it to come! :D
I'm not going to do the pictures and everything, since I think it's better for you to watch the epic video yourself if you haven't already. Don't forget to explore a little, there is a small video after that that say Preview: Darth Maul returns to the Clone Wars


I just can't wait... the video showed me the pieces of the puzzle that I'm going to put together... later on with the help of the full video! I'm mystified by this one. It knew what I wanted and gave only a sip of water to a dying man's mouth. It gave me what I needed to know but gave only a drop so I know what it's like. It knows I will crave more. Though I'm glad to know that the Nigtsisters were still going, Dooku is sharp as ever, and the dark side didn't cloud Yoda. Oh, and of course there's going to be some epic action.

That's it for now... May the Force be with you!

The 11 Tag

Okay... I got tags from Savanna, Jedi Filmaker, Shena, and "A certain point of view". Kind of, for the last one. So I guess I'll just do it :)

The Rules:
1) Post these rules.
2) Post 11 random things about yourself.
3) Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
4) Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5) Go to their blog and tell them they’ve been tagged.
6) No cop-outs in the tagging section like, “If you are reading this” or “if you follow me”. You have to legitimately tag people!



Seven randon things about myself:
1) I'm always kind of tomboy-ish. Not like really wanting to be a boy, but I hate skirts and I have my hair cut short Padawan-style. I even grew the braid for a long while now.



2) In addition to Star Wars, I love music, especially Taylor Swift. I also like fiction books like Narnia, Pendragon, Harry Potter, and some others.



3) My greatest dream is opening the eyes of everyone to a new world... the world of their dreams... In other words, become a good author. Preferably Star Wars. Hehe.



4) I absolutely, insanely, disdainfully HATE chocolate.



5) I keep a diary written in Aurebesh. I also try to learn known words from other Star Wars languages.



6) My code is everything from the Jedi Code, except perhaphs attachments. I mean, I need to get a little attached otherwise it'd be weird. Also the bravery part, since I'm no hero.



7) I've created a Star Wars character of myself which of course goes by the name of Solace Utara. Though I never showed anyone yet.



8) I'm quite a nerd... though I don't wear glasses. I got straight A's multiple times (not trying to sound snobby).



9) Yeah, well, for a nerd I love sports. Not all of them, but definetely swimming, table tennis, badminton, and maybe tennis. I trained for the first three and got into competitions for the first two, which I sometimes won.



10) I have a brother... but you wouldn't want to know about him.



11) I was no fan of anything, though I liked Ancient Egypt and Harry Potter, until I mentally took a lightsaber to the knee.



Questions (I got many tags, so I'll just do the first one from Shena):

1: What is your favorite book?ROTS adult novelization! Of course!
2: Have you ever traveled to another country? If you haven't where would you like to go?
Ooh yes... I've been to over twenty. I love to see the world.
3: What is your favorite genre of music
I honestly don't know... I listen to them all.
4: What is your favorite hair color?

Brownish with golden streaks! Like me!
5: Do you like YouTube?
Pretty much. I listen to songs and Star Wars stuff on it, though I don't get why it needs a dislike button on Star Wars videos.
6: Which fictional characters have you had a crush on? If you haven't which character is your favorite?
I don't really... I'm only twelve and I'm in no age for crushes yet. My favorite is probably Ahsoka Tano or any other Jedi for that matter.
7: If you could have a lightsaber, what color would you want it to be?
I like Jar'kai, so I want two lightsabers. Green and Blue from the caves or Ilum! Purple is also nice... like Siri and Mace... so I'd save it for a lightwhip or something.
8: What Jedi/Sith would you be in the Star Wars universe?
Ahsoka Tano!
9: Do you like anime? If so, which is your favorite?
I neither like or dislike it, though it is very popular in my school.
10: What is your favorite thing to learn about?
Star Wars!
11: Who is your favorite superhero?

The Jedi... if that counts.
My Questions:
1) Where are you living right now?
2) What is your opinion of Rebecca Black?
3) What do you want to be when you grow up?
4) What is your favorite color?
5) Do you own a pet? If so, what is its name, gender, and species?
6) What is your favorite book?
7) What is your least favorite subject?
8) How would you express your opinion about Star Wars?
9) How would you describe yourself in three words?
10) What is the most difficult thing you did in your life?
11) What is your average time you spent on Star Wars?

Well! That took a long time! Okay... the last one. Everyone I know of had been already tagged so I can't do anything but break the last rule :/ Maybe only this once. If you want to do it, go ahead!

May the Force be with you!
 

Massacre Review



So, picking up the ride from season three, I got on the roller coaster, knowing it would be great. But "great" is a huge understatement. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better when I saw The Box, it just did. I know, I know, I say that for every episode, but this one stood out. And I say that for every episode too... but well, you get the idea. This is one of my best episodes in the season. Dark, spell binding, fast, breathtaking, (I could go on forever to describe it) this is a dark roller coaster that twists and turns like a rancor.

The thing that stood out to me the most was... how dark it was. The whole saga centers around the battle between the "light" and "dark" side, but this one is dark against dark and evil against evil. And another thing is that Star Wars rarely ever has magic, yet this one is darkly magical. Even the colors show it all. No yellow light or anything, just the color of blood and green to stand out of the background.

I feel really sorry for Ventress. First she had no support of the nightsisters when she was really young, then she suffered the death of her master, then her sith master abandoned her, then she was betrayed by Savage, then she lost her clan forever. I wasn't surprised she spiraled down the dark side... but what Padme said about Vader was true here too. There was still good in her. I'm not a fan of her or anything, but then she is so... lost. Just when everything seemed okay it all turned out another way. Hey, that rhymes.

On the other hand, I laughed at Dooku's chicken pox. There. I said it. I laughed. I laughed so hard that tears came welling up in my eyes and I threw around just like Dooku did. He deserved it. Jeez... he can't leave her alone. But at least he had enough wit to go contact Grevious, though I can't imagine how he managed to do that. And Talzin coming out of him gave me goosebumps. He wasn't over used, which was awesome. I love it when he begged Grevious for help. I had to remind myself that a Jedi does not take satisfaction in those things.

Grevious, oh, that slave. Though his lightsabers were flashy in the dark environment. Hehe... he reminded me of Starkiller. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters—until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal. Well, he didn't loose his heart because he had none, except for that pathetic one Obi-Wan pulled out in ROTS. And their betrayal... the sith wanted him dead later on anyway.

Now looking at the Nightsisters, I don't see them that evil. They were loyal to one another even facing death. They had been in exile, killed only in defense, and even though their magic is dark, they didn't do anything evil. Revenge is something everyone is vulnerable to, and I can't say they're bad to take it. If there needs to be a good guy in this episode, it would be them, I guess.

The undead totally creeped me out. My eyeballs are glued to the screen and I can't tear it out. But still... yikes. Even when they came the tide of the battle turned in the Nightsister's favor. And... turned it back when they dropped down. The mother of them all was surprisingly killed, but then I can't say I'm surprised of Mother Talzin's powers. This all reminded me of Death Troopers, a novel set in the times of the Empire, which kept me awake at night for so long.

I knew Ventress would win Grevious and he would betray her like a coward he was. Though they aren't sith, Shaak Ti's last words echoed through my mind, "The sith always betray one another... But I'm sure you'll learnt that soon enough."

Somehow I wish the Jedi were here... but this is not meant to be. The episode is meant to be dark, and the Jedi would bring light to it. That's most likely unnecessary and maybe even brings the episode down. But still I wish they were here.

Tightly-plotted with so much action, I thought there was going to be a break apart from the dark humor. But alas, there was none. I guess I have to do with that, though I'd very much like a break to calm my heart (which, by the way, is still beating very fast now like I just ran a mile).

All in all, I can't wait for the next episode, though I know it won't be dark like this anymore and I know I can't possibly enjoy it as much as this one (I thought that at The Box and I was wrong, so I'm hoping I'm wrong here too), but I';m keeping my hopes up. I'm giving the episode 9.5/10, 0.5 taken off for making my heart beat so fast I thought a heart attack was coming (though that was necessary). Of course, I rarely gave full score (and my heart is still beating too fast for my liking). So until next time, May the Force be with you!

Just for the record, my heart is still thudding.

The Dawn and Dusk of the Dark

Chapter 8

"We need to split up," said Kalifa, "They know that were missing from the platform. If we get found, we'll attract too much attention in a group this large. We're not in the restricted area, so we might pass as a prisoner doing work. I'll go with Kaayla. Sc-Barriss, you go with Eroda and Ward."

Wow. She said that so calmly. There was urgency beneath the tone, but no fear. Even Barriss. On the other hand, fear was evident on Eroda's, Ward's, and my face.

She grinned and said, "Good luck, even there's no such thing. And relax. We've been through worse."

I can't believe I'm crazy enough to sign up for this little let's-get-out-of-prison plan.

Anyway, we reached a conjunction. Kalifa and I went right. Eroda and Ward went front, allowing Barriss to go left. Then they backtracked and turned to follow Barriss. Soon they turned again and went out of sight. We crawled on.

"Don't worry. Barriss told me there's two ways to enter the platform from here," Kalifa said conversationally.

I couldn't talk back because there was a lump in my throat. But I nodded. It eased the twist in my guts.

We reached a part with a covering when Kalifa motioned me to stop. She carefully opened the cover and peered down. Mouthing, "Stay here until I call you", she jumped down. A second later I heard a muffled cry and a crack. I winced.

"Kaayla?" She called up, "It's safe down here!" I jumped-or rather, fall-down, as there was Kalifa catching me. Putting me down, she looked outside the window and saw prisoners working as hard as they can. Pity filling her eyes, she turned away and motioned me to come.

A voice came through the comlink. "CT-7523, do you copy? Come in, CT-7523. There's a faulty comlink, commander. Perhaphs I should go check."

Kalifa piled the unconsious bodies up to the store room with incredible speed and grabbed my hand. Soon we were out of the door and on a narrow hallway.

"What next?" I asked.

"The hardest plan ever. We run."

I hope she was being sarcastic. It did seem like it... but everything is not always as it seems.

"Over there!" Came a voice behind us.

Kalifa hunched over and lost her usual grace. I did the same. Not that I had much grace.

They came over. "Who is your overseer?" He demaded.

"CT-7523, sir," Kalfia said in a weak voice. "He sent us on and errand and then we-"

"Silence!" He thundered, putting an end to her imporvised bables.

She fell silent and let them eye us suspiciously. Before he could call the unconsious clone on his comlink, Kalifa knocked him over and piled him up in a closet with his buddy. And we ran.

"Whoops. There's a security cam," she said regretfully.

We ran and ran. The troopers started chasing us. Soon they were firing and the central command room was closing doors, trying to corner us. I ran like I never did in my life. I stumbled a few times. My wild heart didn't help wither. Kalifa was the only thing keeping me from panic.

I felt a hot one against my skin, hitting the spot I was in a second ago. Out of sheer terror, I ran even faster. If it was not for the situation, I would have looked at myself and laughed.

"After this run, there's someone I'd like you to meet. She-," I heard Kalifa saying calmly through the chase.

Her sentence was cut off because I suddenly stopped. Despite our situation, I almost groaned aloud. I saw this before. In my dreams. Déjà vu. Again. Wasn't it ever gonna stop?

Before I can puzzle out why I have the skill of foresight, I told myself it's a coincidence. I was about to say "nothing's wrong" to Kalifa when something really went wrong. If you don't call the situation wrong already.

A blaster bolt grazed Kalifa's shoulder. I screamed.

"Chillax!" She called out, though there was pain beneath she couldn't disguise. "It's just a bolt! Get movin'!"

Her voice got me moving. Then-with a stroke of luck- the blast doors closed behind us just in time. Kalifa hit the control and it sparkled and died out. I took deep, calming breaths, but I could smell nothing but foul air. But that's good. It means we were getting closer to the platform.

We staggered through the rest as quickly as we can. They were getting the blast doors open. Soon they did get it, but then we were far way and there were two paths.

They searched us. They jogged off the one direction only, leaving two to guard the intersection. Huh. I soon knew why- they knew that this way led to smoke, and we were unlikely to escape it. Even if we did, we'd go to the platform leading prisoners to their deaths.

They don't know, however, that Kalifa had breathing masks. We continued on, but one of the guards left behing spotted a figure. Oops. Thinking it might be us (well, it was actually me), he jogged down and left one to guard that place. Maybe he thought that if it was really us, then he could handle two opressed prisoners.

We made our way through the smoke and he saw us clearly though his goggles. Kalifa didn't go back to dispose of him, however. She ran forward with me. There wasn't enough time.

He ran, too, but he had a good supply of oxygen in his mask. Stang. That was the secong mistake we made. By running, we use up more oxygen... which meant less supply. We better get through this quick. I was running out of air.

Kalifa realized this, too, and knocked him out. Reluctantly leaving him there, we moved on, trying to preserve oxygen. Kalifa did not have a problem, but then I was desperate for air now. I felt whoozy. She picked me up carefully, so she won't injure her shoulder, and bursted into a run.

When we reached the platform, I tore my mask of and took deep breaths. The air of Raxus Prime never smelled sweeter. When I trusted myself to stand up, we walked to the steady flow of prisoners. I broke into a smile when I saw Eroda and Ward with Barriss, and had to hold back tears. There was so much emotion inside me. Eroda, Ward, and I ran together for a group hug.

By the time we broke off and my heart beat turned normal (for now), I looked a Kalifa and Barriss, who was having a conversation with another person. So that's the person she wants me to meet. Oh. Okay.

We got abord and the guards herded the crowd to a room. Not an individual cell. Just a huge room that looked tiny once every one came in. I don't care. I was too happy to see them alive. We just took a huge step on the path to freedom.

"Kaayla, I know you're in the mood to throw banthas up in the air, but there's someone wanting to join your party," Kalifa said as that person and Barriss joined her.

"Eva Kalvin, nice to meet you," the women said.

We three nodded and smiled. A friend of Kalifa and Barriss is a friend of mines.

We went off to rest, waiting to discuss our plans tommorow.

Beofre I could sleep... I needed to see hyperspace. Pushing my way to the nearest window, I stared out. Below lay the massive piles of junk getting smaller. The murky air started to clear. Soon we were in space. I saw the twinkling stars. Then the stars streak by as I was jumped into hyperspace for the first time. Wondurous. Truly Wonderous.

My gasp was not the only one in the room. You can only imagine how we felt seeing the stars for the first time. This is the best moment of my life, I thought as I settled down for a good sleep.


I left behind the closest thing I can ever have to a home. But it holds so many bad memories. I hate that stink hole. I never looked back.
I hope I’ll never see it again.

The Dawn and Dusk of the Dark

Chapter 7

Fear. I always thought that was just being afraid. But now, I know better. Oh, emperor help me, I haven't even started my adventure and I found a new definition of fear. I'd hate to admit it yesterday, but now I don't care.

It, simply put, is the thing that runs down your spine. It eats you inside out. It creeps up from nowhere and strike you in the heart. It... I could go on forever and can't express how truly I was fearing that things can get worse.

I know, I know, I'm a coward, but I found out that I really do have something to loose. I have Eroda and Ward, my best friends. I developed a bond I can't really explain with Barriss and Kalifa. And, at the bottom of the list, I have my life. If I need to die to get out of this miserable existence, I will. It didn't occur to me before that I could just kill myself, though. I guess I still have my mother in me.

I woke up today just like that- not because of a scream or anything, but a stirring inside me. The long forgotten hopes of changing my destiny... and along that came fear. But I was ready to do this because I have to do it. So I will.

A few minutes later they were all awake and we're ready to go. Kalifa gave me an encouraging smile and a warm hand on my shoulder underneath the dirty rag. Instantly, a voice so like my mom's echoed through my head- the soft, melodic voice that flew through my ears and echoed pleasantly through my mind.

"Courage, dear one."

I looked around, but no one seemed to have heard it. As strange as it was, I was too occupied to puzzle much. Still, it gave me exactly what I need: courage. As Kalifa took her hand off my shoulder and walked down the hall, I felt a sense of warmness. This was the gray, dirty hall I walked on every morning in my life for fourteen years. This could be my last walk.

I did not puzzle my thoughts about that either. There will be time later when we finish the adventure... if we finish it. No. I take that back. We will finish it. I'm in one of the best hands in the Galaxy. Or so I hope.

The dull, yellow lighting casts a spooky shadow as we moved down the narrow hall. Yet my mom's voice still echoed inside me and gave me the courage to move on. Though the place was as as noisy as usual, I didn't give it a second thought. My heart was pumping too loud to even hear a blaster bolt streaking by and hitting a prisoner. Nor did I give a second thought when Kalifa nudged Barriss and directed her eyes to a person in the midst of the crowd.

We ate breakfast as usual. At the corner of my eye I saw a group next to us that normally headed for the far west side of the room that led to the factory. Instead of going there as usual, the guards herded some people to another place. I don't need Kalifa's and Barriss's expertise to be able to sense the fear in air, or even see it on their faces. One resisted, but then got shot. No big surprise. The others got the message went along quietly.

I can see Kalifa mentally crossing off the seconds in her head before the bell rings. Just a second before it did ring, she stood up quietly so not to attract attention. She motioned us to do the same. Then, through the chaos, we followed her through the room. Out of the corner of my eye I saw prisoners taken doing a retina scan. Looks like they chose it really carefully and meant it to be that way. I also saw one prisoner trembling with fear as they scanned his eye, and it didn't match. The meaning couldn't be plainer: he tried to sneak on. You know what happened to him.

We reached the line doing the scan but didn't enter it. Behind me, I heard loud crashes of plates and stuff. Strangely, no one was there. I finally had enough sense then to see how bizarre it was, like the pair knew that it was going to happen. I convinced myself that there were rebels helping out... but then it wasn't like Kalifa and Barriss to leave them behind. Maybe they got an escape plan... or... ugh. I didn't puzzle it out more because Barriss pushed us forward and encouraged us to run. The Imperials were running to clean it up when Kalifa grabbed my hand and squeezed me into a large ventilation shaft. I could feel Eroda, Ward, and Barriss behind me as I grabbed Kalifa's shoulder in front of me to make sure everything's okay, and we all pushed forward.

All I just did was follow Kalifa's lead as we crawled through the maze. Left, right, down, right, right, left, and something... I lost track of it all. Kalifa, however, seemed to know what she was doing and did not say a word. The silence was cracking my nerves. I was never a talkative person, but then I've never been through such a quiet environment. All I can hear was my heart thumping. I can't wait to get to get out.

I didn't need to wait for long. Below, I heard troopers marching the prisoners. That was good. It meant we were close. Or were we?

When she stopped, I knew Kalifa had the same question. "It isn't right," she murmured, "The ship is on the east, and the sounds from the west."

Stang. We all reached the same conclusion with a strike of fear. They were after us.

My Edits #3 :)

I did yet another edit yesterday... hope you like it. I always like the Padme and Anakin relationship, even though it didn't end so well. So this one I used a quote from ROTS adult novelization. If you look closely you can see a very transparent picture of candles as the background with the stars. :)


Until next time... May the Force be with you...

Quiz

I'm a Star Wars fan.

No denying that, but I couldn't believe the results I got. Quiz me on the prequels, I'd get a B or an A. Test me on the Old Republic and the Original Trilogy and beyond, er... you wouldn't want to hear the score. Not so good. Probably not an F, but not an A either. I have been a Star Wars fan for less than most of you since I'm only twelve...  we probably start at the same age but I know you guys are older than me by far. So I didn't get to study the other eras much, so I covered only the main idea and so. Anyway...

Down to business. I made this quiz a month ago... and it has been rated as "Impossible". I'm still pretty surprised to see that, since I thought my knowledge of the prequels hardly matches other Star Wars fans, not even thinking of surpassing it. But here it is... so please prove the computer wrong.

http://www.funtrivia.com/trivia-quiz/Literature/Jedi-Order-General-Knowledge-60-19-BBY-342615.html

Tell me your score below! No cheating! I will tell you the highest person to score before this Friday in my next post! May the Force be with you!

Massacre #2

Okay. I did my last one before a few days ago, before anything was out. I thought it was going to be out this previous Saturday... forgive me for not checking wikipedia or anything well. Not wanting to add to the old one, I just did this new post. So... here we go...

Moral
"One must let go of the past to hold onto the future."

Wow. Nice quote. Though I'd stick on to Qui-Gon's and hold to the present. ;D

Summary
"Count Dooku is determined to have revenge against the Nightsisters of Dathomir after their betrayal. General Grievous launches an all-out droid attack against the magic-wielding witches, and Mother Talzin and Asajj Ventress lead the defense with all the dark powers at their command."

Different from last time, eh? :D This one is in more details, but it didn't mention about the season finale :/

Pictures
Okay, I got some new ones! For those who wanna see the other two... it's in my previous post... sorry :/

A mysterious ship landing... the Nightsisters take aim...

Oh. So it's Ventress. Good thing for her the Nightsisters didn't shoot.

What a change in environment... o.O

Ventress and Mother Talzin meets... I didn't know that it was the first time since season three :/ I thought she returned already... well...

So genuine... who would've guessed this wasn't a normal mother and daughter pair...

They're in for a talk. I wonder why Talzin didn't tell her about Savage? And it isn't like Ventress to hide for so long...

Her pale blue eyes sure make her attractive to SOME people...

Talzin is wise... Ventress must let go of what she has, she said, and that she should only have loyalty to her sisters and herself... so like witches. I recognize that room at the back as the room Savage saw his brother.

Well, I have high hopes for this episode. So until then... May the Force be with you!

Massacre

Okay... let's get started. Sorry I took so long before posting this... I can't seem to find anything on it. Looks like they're no previews videos or morals or anything much... anyway, I guess you will be seeing this in the morning because my time zone is ahead of alot of countries. And I'm going to watch Star Wars 3D finally!!! I can't get my head straight with these two things this weekend! :D

Moral
[Not out yet... come on!]

Official Description
"The first episode of a four-part season finale. Count Dooku seeks revenge for his betrayal at the hands of Asajj Ventress and the Nightsisters."

T-t-the... season finale??? I can hardly wait. I saw the season four trailer a long time ago... and Ventress vs. Grievous is stuck in my head. I hope it's gonna be in this episode! If not... then, well, it's not the will of the Force. But I know this is going to be awesome, Grievous or not!!!

Pictures
I can't find much... and I'd put the Duel in case it's in this episode

I simply can't wait for this. :)

Dooku with chickenpox? xD This is soooo creepy...

That's all I can find! May the Force be with you!

Happy Valentines Day!!!



Something I edited. Two lovers in their dreamland (Of course, you know who they are). I hope you can put yourself and your love in the space!!! :D

For me, hey, I'm just twelve, so I'd go to the Forever Alone 9gag stuff some of my friends are doing. And, yes, my day did already pass, and it was nice, though without that kind of love in it.

I hope you have a great time (or will have, depending on the time zone) today! I don't have much to say, so I'd just wish you the best with your loved ones and... May the Force be with you!

Monday, February 13, 2012

My Edits #2 :)

Okay, this is my second time posting my fan art :) As usual, there's Ahsoka Tano, but there's also Anakin and Padme. You might already guessed from my video that I like the couple. Anyway, hope you like my edits! :D





So, what do you think of them? State it below!

Oh yes... just a note, I didn't post my fan fiction for awhile now since I've been busy and I wanted to build my thoughts up, so I'll be posting soon! Now that I made me promise, I can't delay it any further. It's a way to force myself to write it out.

So until next time, May the Force be with you!

Crisis on Naboo Review

Ahhh.... another Star Wars episode is exactly what I need after a hard school week. I've got something to look forward too at least, and I got it. Maybe not as much as I hoped for, but I did get it. So off we go.

I'll waste no time in saying that Kenobi is awesome. There. I said it. Kenobi is awesome. The star of the arc shines brighter than ever before. Of course, he couldn't completely fool Count Dooku, and I wasn't surprised when he said there's something he couldn't trust about Hardeen. While Kenobi wasn't used as much as the previous episodes, he still is my hero.

Now, Anakin Skywalker. His skills in the dueling was awesome, and he is Anakin-ish as ever. Well, because he is Anakin, the Hero with No Fear. I think that he took it a little over when he found out everything, but then the council shouldn't have deceived him. I know, they were doing it for a good accuse but still... Jedi shouldn't have kept secrets from one another. The war changes everything.

Next stop, Ahsoka. While she didn't play much of a role, it was clear that she's learning from Anakin. She protects the people pretty well and she was polite. There's still a bit of personality she had as a youngling left in her. I'm glad of how she is right now and I have high hopes of who she would become.

I'm glad that she mentioned about Life Day in Naboo, because I was waiting for the holidays to play a bigger part in the whole saga. A lot of fans may not even know that the Festival of Life, Festival of Stars, and The New Year fete week exists. Sure, most of us knows about the Galactic Standard Calendar and all (I hope) but then there's not much detail in all. And Naboo joined the Republic in Life Day so many years ago? Well, that's new for me.

I found the fireworks beautiful and creative as well as some other stuff. I am impressed with the technology
the bounty hunters have to be disguised as a blue guard and everything. I loved Cad Bane's face as he was defeated and realized the truth. Hehe... I like the fact that he still has a fight left in him while Eval chickened out. The other Jedi played a good role in it all. Not much here... but I'd just like to point it out.

Remember in episode three when Obi-Wan said that "This time we'll do it together"? I don't really see the point of that now since they worked together on this episode. Now it is certain that Obi-Wan and Anakin met Dooku again after episode 2 and before episode 3. So... why? Why did they act as if this didn't exist? By the looks of it, I'm not the only one puzzling about this too. And the duel, apart from adding some action and another attempt to get Palpatine, was pointless. How did the Sith lords fit in all this? So many questions in my head... and this episode raised more than it answered.

This would fit better if it is not the conclusion of the saga. Sure, we can't fix the problem above, but now we are left with something like a cliffhanger. We don't know what happened to some of the bounty hunters and how the relationship with Obi-Wan and Anakin evolved. I felt like there was more to the story, and I'm regretting the fact that we have to live with this.

Overall, the episode was okay. It wasn't the best, and it didn't really match up with the whole saga really well. There was not much humor (though I enjoyed the part where "Palpatine" hits Anakin), but then I don't know how to put much of it in myself. The plot was pretty weak, and I did not like the fact that this was the conclusion of the saga. I would give it a 6.5/10. I hope that's not too low.

I can't wait for the final arc. What are your opinions? State them below! So until next time, May the Force be with you!

Crisis on Naboo

Okay, let's make this short and sweet. Like every other episode, I guess this is gonna be thrilling! But after being thrown off the hook in the last episode, I have high hopes for this one.

Moral
"Trust is the greatest of gifts, but it must be earned."

*sigh* :) What a good one :D

Official Description
"The Chancellor travels to Naboo to preside over a public ceremony, guarded by Jedi Knights. Dooku and his bounty hunters—including an undercover Obi-Wan Kenobi—launch their kidnapping plot."

Ahhhhh!!! Awesome!!! I wonder what role Sidious plays in this as Palpatine? Hmmm...

Pictures
I always looks forward to a lightsaber duel! :D And Palpatine is there... reminds me of ROTS

The Bounty Hunters meeting with Dooku leading :) Hmm...

Bane is gonna act like a natural leader, I'm sure! ;)

A thingy that's gonna help their plan thingy :P

After assigning jobs, Obi-Wan/Hardeen gets the sniper o.O

That's it for now! May the Force be with you!

The Box Review

*** Sorry it's a little late...

Man, this episode threw me off the hook. Well, every episode does, but this one left my head spinning. I screamed every time the video buffered, and my heart was thumping so hard. Not only did the writer think outside the box, but he made it inside The Box. Get it? haha. Just awesome. I simply love this episode... well, the plot isn't very think- the problem is just simply surviving. Also, the whole episode is action. But who doesn't love it?!

I'd really like to point out the star of this arc- OBI-WAN KENOBI!!! I really, really like him. I won't be surprised, though, if he blows his cover. I thought he would- you know, helping everyone out when no other bounty hunters would. Well, he ain't one but if he's not careful everyone will know. But, his kindness was payed back with Cad Bane helping. Well, what do you know. I thought he had to somehow get out be himself.

One thing I'd like to point out is that even though it's in Dooku's homeworld, it didn't look like it. Really doesn't. It's a whole new environment that's Star Wars-ish. Not that others are not also, but there are some aspects of real life in it too. It really reminded me of the Quillan Games in Pendragon.

The break with Yoda and Anakin... nothing really interesting but a good thing to add to the whole arc.

Okay. One sentence of that is enough. Back to the challenges. Before it even began, Bane killed one off. Awesome... but it wouldn't be if I was the one dead. Well, he's a bounty hunter, so I can't expect anything less from him. I really loved his quote, though. The hat is really nice, actually. hehe. I agree with him on that.

I'm impressed with the skills of the Bounty Hunters, well, most of them. They were brave enough to risk their lives for money... I'd chicken out as soon as I landed on Senero. As much as I don't want to. Anyway, their reputation alone would make me sure that they'd enter. But, alas, some are not skilled enough for the challenge, so move along, move along...

I'm disappointed to see that some of the characters like Ahsoka Tano isn't in here, and Anakin got only a small scene with Yoda. But still, it's the way it's meant to be since Obi-Wan got the spotlight here. And I'm glad Dooku was there yet didn't play much of a role. Though I can't deny that I loved it when he interfered the game to get Eval up and jumping. Served him right. Still... he wasn't killed.

I noticed that the way Obi-Wan punched him was like the way he did to Anakin. I hope it didn't hurt the same way though. Yikes.

I don't have much to say, since my head is still spinning from getting off the hook. Overall, I'd give this episode a 9/10, one point off for the flaws mentioned. It should be two points but... I can't seem to write 8 down. The action's too awesome. Can't wait till next time!!! Ahhh!!!

So until next time finally comes, May the Force be with you!!!

Book of the Sith

As you all know, Book of the Sith is coming out soon! I really want to read that... even though I would be a Jedi over Sith if I have the choice. This book would give me the views of the Sith and more information on them. I can't wait!!!

So, I watched the trailer on StarWars.com and took a look at the writings shown. It's not much, but worth looking at. I want to see the whole thing very soon... even more than before now that I read bits of it. To save you trouble, I'm going to post it up. Click for a bigger picture!
















That's it! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!!! May the Force be with you!!!
