    These are the questions by Jamie at Through Two Blue Eyes
    1. What famous movies have you not seen yet but would like too?

    I could make a list of 100 movies I want to see but here are a few of them. I actually watched the first Harry Potter movie for the first time the other day and it was okay, so look for the review. Also I want to watch the Star Trek movies, Back to the Future Trilogy, Mad Max Trilogy, Spartacus, and Charade. I have so many that I want to watch.

    2. What is your opinion of Charlie Brown?
    My mother is a big fan of the peanuts comics and she has a lot of Snoopy stuff especially Christmas things, so yeah I like Charlie Brown and the gang.

    3. Which of your favorite books would you love to see made into a film and why?
    Heir to the Empire! I want this to be made into a movie so much! But it probably never happen since all of the actors are much to old. And The Old Republic: Revan, but before making one based on the book there would have to be one based on the video game first.

    4. What is one of your favorite pass-times?
    Blogging, playing video games, watching movies, watching TV and watching any Star Wars.

    5. What type of vehicle would you love to own, from any film, book or even from reality?

    The Empire Strikes Back would be awesome to have.
    7. What is a minor thing you’d like to see in your future spouse?
    This is a hard question since I don't really think about it that much. I guess she would have to at least like Star Wars and movies in general and be good at cooking. Being a Christian is a major thing.

    Gif. and some pictures below are from Kalya at Jedi Filmaker

    9. What is a pet peeve you’ve discovered from being on the blogosphere?
    There are a lot of thing makes me mad about blogger.
    1: The auto play music is really annoying. I have to stop it from playing just so I can read the post. I don't know about you but I don't like reading while listening to music with lyrics but I do like listening to my Star Wars and other movie soundtrack while reading.

    2: Word verification thing super annoying! It has changed to be even worse! That is why I don't have it set like that. The only thing it does is try to keep from having "bot spam comments". But it really doesn't make much of a different. I have tried.
    3: Dashboard not showing all posts from my followers! I hate it when this happens!

    10. If you could dress up–without any difficulty or thought of cost–as any character, who would it be?
    It would have to be Darth Vader or Revan. They both have awesome costumes.
    11. Where would you like to go on vacation this year?
    Since I rarely go on vacation, I really don't know. Going to the Star Wars Celebration VI next year would really awesome, though that is next year.
    1: What is your favorite book?
    Easily Heir to the Empire and The Old Republic: Revan. I just finished the Revan book a few day ago so look for the review.

    I really like these pictures of her.

    Darth Vader or Revan.

    9: Do you like anime? If so, which is your favorite?

If you like The Lord of the Rings movies and own a Blu-Ray I recommend you buy this.

    Star Wars The Clone Wars: Massacre Review

    Warning: This post will contain spoilers for the Clone Wars episode, "Massacre".

    Thoughts: This is the episode I have been waiting for since I heard that Darth Maul, Savage Opress, and the Nightsisters were backing! While some people were not so sure about bring back Darth Maul, I was on the fence but the fact that we get the Nightsiters and Savage Opress makes it well worth it. I didn't watch any previews or any kind spoilers so I wouldn't be influenced by them. I had ridiculously expectations for this episode and it definitely lived up to it! This episode was all kinds of awesome! Probably the best battle scenes in The Clone Wars I have seen. While some didn't like the idea of "witchcraft" in the episode, I didn't mind as much knowing a lot The Old Republic and the other force sensitive beings in the Star Wars Universe that use the force although they are not Jedi/Sith, so is not un-common for this kind of stuff in the Star Wars EU. Also there were Zombies! Usually we don't like zombies but this actually worked excellently with the episode. Although I haven't read the "Death Troopers" book I know this isn't the first there were zombies in Star Wars. They looked kind of creepy, it didn't bother me at all but I can imagine that a little kid would be freaked out by this. I am really glad there was a really dark and brutal tone to "Massacre". This episode is definitely the best since "Carnage of Krell"! I loved every minute of this! The Ventress vs. General Grievous duel was also awesome! The story was great; the only thing that might disappoint fans would be that Darth Maul wasn't in the episode. I didn't read any of the previews so I did not know for sure if he was going to in the episode or not. But I think not having him in this one was probably a good idea not to have him in the episode. When Dooku was being killed by the Night Mother was very different and interesting. The big battle between the Nightsisters and the Trade Federation was super awesome! The deaths were brutal, the zombies were really cool. Everything about this episode was what we wanted!

    The Good: Awesome battle scenes, Perfect darker tone, Dathomir looked great, Best episode since "Carnage of Krell", Different from the other episodes,

    The Bad:

    Plot: 10/10- Excellent plot perfectly paced and sets up well for the next episode.

    Action: 10/10- Probably the battle scene I have seen in The Clone Wars (I have seen every episode) and the lightsaber duel was also great.

    Acting: 10/10- Dooku voice actor was a little better usual and the Night Mother sounded and creepy and eerie.

    Art Style: 10/10- Dathomir looked fantastic, the mist hovering above the ground was looked good and the animation for the battle was very fluent.

    Overall: 10/10- Overall one of the best Clone Wars episodes to date, I am definitely going to remember this episode.

    Closing Comments: I really hope the rest of the episodes in the story arc will live up to my expectations. I know that some will not like the episode because of the darker and the creepiness of it but we loved it!

    Classic Clone Wars Reivew: Nightsisters/Savage Opress Trilogy Review.

    If you haven't seen our review for "Star Wars Heir to the Empire" please clickon the link below and comment
    Book Review: Star Wars Heir to the Empire Audiobook Review Part 1: The Book Review
    Book Review: Star Wars Heir to the Empire Audiobook Review Part 2: The Characters

    Since the Nightsisters/Darth Maul episodes are coming later today we decided to review the original Nightsisters Episodes Trilogy. Although we said in our earlier review of the "Darkness on Umbara/Carnage of Krell" Trilogy Story Arc "That it was the best story arc of the series" we have now changed our opinion the episodes. We decided that the Nightsisters Trilogy was better. We still like the "Darkness on Umbara" Trilogy; it is our second favorite story arc after the Nightsister Trilogy.

    Note: We have not seen the episode since we first watched them so we are writing this from memory. And this is a review for the three episodes as a whole but all three individual episodes would get a score of a perfect 10/10.

    Thoughts: At the time of this story arc The Clone Wars has had its ups and downs but mostly good episodes. But this story arc completely blew us away! The Clone Wars is at its best when it is about something that you just couldn't do in the movies. And the Nightsisters story arc is a prime example of this. It was dark, complex, compelling, different, and brutal. Although we normally don't like it when a series or movie was a really dark theme compared to the others in the series like Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom. It was a little too dark, we liked it a lot but it wasn't as good as the original. But The Clone Wars is a different story. When the theme is dark it is usually better than other episodes. And we don't want to sound like we are crazy or insane but we like it when there are a little more violent kills in The Clone Wars. We are not talking about blood and gore but like the movies with the occasional arm being sliced off by a lightsaber and someone being force choked. It also gave us the story from the villain's point of view with the training Opress by Ventress to kill her former mast Count Dooku. The Clone Wars is at its best when things that normally don't in Star Wars like the Nightsisters Trilogy and the later story arc the Overlords Trilogy are two great examples of the Clone Wars going into "uncharted territory" with spectacular success. While some might find these episodes a little weird we loved them. Although the Nightsisters were referenced in some of the EU novels but this is the first you see them in action. The lightsaber battles were amazing. The best of the series, especially the last battle between with Opress, Ventress, Dooku, Obi-Wan, and Anakin. The episodes just kept getting better as the story arc went on with the last episode in the arc, “Witches of the Mist”, which is our favorite episode in The Clone Wars history. There are too many good things to say about this story arc. The story arc did everything right and is a perfect example of The Clone Wars can be. And is probably the best series of Television Episodes we have ever seen.

    The Good: The lightsaber duels are the best of the series, Darker theme, Very unique compared to other episodes, Asajj Ventress became a more interesting character, Savage Opress is one of the best new characters introduced into The Clone Wars, The animation was much improved over previous episodes, Best Clone Wars story arc, Perfect pacing, Seeing Savage Opress' training by Ventress gave us an interesting look into Dathomir culture,

    Plot: 10/10- It had a darker tone and told the story from the villain's point of view and both of which is a great change of pace from The Clone Wars format.

    Action: 10/10- The lightsaber duel were some of the best in the series and have yet to matched.

    Acting: 10/10- The usual solid voice with Savage Opress and Asajj Ventress' voice actors were both great.

    Art Style: 10/10- The overall look of Dathomir was great and the animation for the lightsaber duel was very fluent and smooth.

    Overall: 10/10- Overall this is the best Clone Wars story arc to date and we hope that the up coming Darth Maul story arc will be even better.

    Closing Comments: "This is my kind of Story Arc: fearless and inventive."

    Book Review: Star Wars Heir to the Empire Audiobook Review Part 2: The Characters

    If you haven't seen part 1 of this review please click on the link below to go to it and please comment.
    And if you yet to vote on if you would want me to make a Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Beginnings Guide please let me know.

    This part of the review will be about the characters in the book. Mostly the new characters in created for the book including Mara Jade, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Joruus C'baoth, Talon Karrde, and Captain Gilad Pellaeon.

    Mara Jade
    Mara Jade is arguably the most well know Star Wars EU (Expanded Universe) character. Although most Star Wars fans already know what will happen to her the next books, I will spoil anything if you have not. Mara is fascinating character and her past is shrouded in mystery. She has a deep hate for Luke Skywalker for ruining her life. While most of her past is revealed in the latter half of the book there is still mystery to the character. I am very interested to how her character will progress in the book.

    Grand Admiral Thrawn
    Grand Admiral Thrawn is another famous Star Wars EU, who is also known by most Star Wars fans even if they have not read the book. Grand Admiral Thrawn is one of my new favorite Star Wars characters. He would easily make a Top 20 Star Wars Characters List. He stood out as the most interesting and complex character in the book. Thrawn is not an "Evil" type of villain, he is a professional soldier and never intentionally harms civilians and he is not arrogant like most Commanders in his position. Thrawn is not the kind of "Bad guy" that is pure evil like The Emperor. But he is not the tragic villain like Vader; he is just doing his job to persevere The Empire. The Grand Admiral is a very unique character and probably become even better as the series of books goes on. I really hope he makes an appearance in The Clone Wars at some point.

    Captain Gilad Pellaeon
     Captain Gilad Pellaeon is second in command to Grand Admiral Thrawn on the Imperial Flag Ship Chimaera. Pellaeon is a battle harden soldier and while he does not play a major part in the book he is an interesting character. I hope he grows even more as a character in the next.

    Talon Karrde
    Talon Karrde basically took over Jabba the Hutt's operation but is much more discrete. He runs the largest smuggling operation at the time of the "Heir to the Empire" and is Mara Jade's boss. It is hard to say more about the character without spoiling the plot of the book.

    Joruus C'baoth
    Joruus C'baoth is a Warning Minor Spoiler but right after you meet the character in the book this is revealed so it isn't much of a spoiler: He is a clone of a Clone Wars era Jedi Jorus C'baoth, (notice the second "U" is his first name, it is the only difference in their name), And due to the failed Cloning process he has been driven insane and turned to the dark side. He is another great introduced in is probably my third favorite new character from "Heir to the Empire (Favorite being Thrawn 1st and Mara 2nd). It is interesting that Yoda said that Luke was the last of the Jedi but C'baoth was still alive. Maybe it because he is a Dark Jedi and not a true Jedi or that he is a Clone and Yoda believed that the real C'baoth to have died during The Clone Wars.
    There are also a few more very minor characters introducted in the book but they are not important enough to note in this review.

    Also most of the characters from the Original Star Wars Trilgoy are the main characters in the book but if you have watched the movies you who they are but is the list.

    Han Solo
    Luke Skywalker
    Leia Solo
    Lando Calrissian

    All of the characters were very true to the original depiction of them in the movies.

    That is it for my review of Heir to the Empire. If you want us to review more books please comment and let us know.
