6 Thoughts on Obi-Wan Kenobi (Review)

I wasn’t as super-hyped about the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show as other Star Wars fans seemed to be. I was just never a big Obi-Wan fan in general. But I still love Star Wars and I’m going to watch whatever shows they put out. More power to them. Now that Obi-Wan has come and gone, I felt it was all just generally fine. Nothing particularly special, as far as I’m concerned.

TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good

In the end, I feel like Obi-Wan Kenobi was just a simple, straight forward adventure that this hermit Jedi gets to go on. It doesn’t really alter anything we know about the character or the era of the Star Wars timeline. I actually think it adds some unneeded complications that will need smoothing over in all our minds. But I was never bored, and there were definitely some cool moments. It’s definitely not a bad show. I just don’t think it was anything special.

Join me after the jump for my review and all my thoughts on the first(?) season of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

A Proper Lightsaber Duel

The geniuses at FXitinPost have re-made the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: A New Hope. My hat is off to them. That battle is pretty lame, and they turn it into the coolest lightsaber duel of the entire franchise!

These is a really well-done editing job, and some great lightsaber choreography! My hat is off to everyone involved!


Let’s Keep This Star Wars Train Rolling with Darth Vader by Tell It Animated!

I hadn’t planned on posting so much Star Wars content, but when it’s a random Tuesday and Tell It Animated is awesome, how about a Darth Vader video?

This guy does great work! These are fun videos. I wish I had the talent to come up with a fun YouTube series. I’d be on easy street!


Let’s Enjoy Some Radical Star Wars Animated Bits!

These have been popping up as part of a project for Star Wars Kids and/or Galaxy of Adventures. Something like that. Suffice to say, they are radical as all heck!

Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader

Yoda vs. Count Dooku

Here’s hoping we get a bunch more of these. They’re just plain neat.


The 6 Most Badass Moments From the Darth Vader Comic

Darth Vader is a badass. We’ve always known this. It’s written into our code as science fiction-loving human beings. But how often do we actually get to see him be a badass? His lightsaber duel with Obi-Wan is a couple of old dudes knocking some sticks together. He can’t stop Luke Skywalker from blowing up the Death Star. He leaves it up to a bounty hunter to find the Millennium Falcon. And mostly he’s either whining over his wife or whining over his son. The dude is the most menacing villain in the history of cinema, but the movies leave a lot to be desired.

Fortunately, that’s where the comics come in!

Ever since Marvel took over writing Star Wars comics, they have been doing a real bang up job. Writer Kireon Gillen and artist Salvador Larocca were on the Darth Vader comic, which lasted 25 regular issues and a couple bonus issues. The series came to an end last week in grand fashion. This was one hell of a comic. The Darth Vader series presented the Dark Lord of the Sith in ways we’ve never been before. This was a Vader unrestrained by a special effects budget or story choices that focus on Luke. This was a Darth Vader powerful in the Dark Side and loyal to the Empire. This was Darth Vader as a force of nature head of state who commands fear and respect wherever he goes!

And to celebrate this awesome series, I went back through my issues and picked out six of the coolest moments from Marvel’s Darth Vader comics! Hopefully this will convince you to pick up the series if you haven’t already. Join me after the jump!
