THE SANTA CLAUSE 2


2002 DIRECTOR: Michael Lembeck May contain spoilers! Evil Santa (Tim Allen) delivers coal: The real Santa (Tim Allen) is about to lose his powers if he fails to enact the second ‘Santa Clause’, ‘The Mrs Clause’: Somehow, this sequel is better than the 1994 original, probably because it does not begin with Santa’s untimely death at the hands our…

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: SEASON 1, EPISODE 1 “AMBUSH”


2008 DIRECTOR: Dave Bullock May contain spoilers! The first episode of the hit Cartoon Network series, The Clone Wars, not to be confused with the earlier 2003-2005 Genndy Tartakovsky Micro Series Star Wars: Clone Wars which tells the story of the titular conflict between Episodes II and III much more succinctly, focuses on Yoda and his efforts to…

STAR WARS: EWOKS (TV)”THE CRIES OF THE TREES”


1985 DIRECTOR: Raymond Jafelice May contain spoilers! Never being a fan of this cuddly cartoon about even more cuddly teddy bears which would both defeat the Galactic Empire and kiddify the Star Wars universe in a way would lead to the Prequel Trilogy 15 years later, I returned to this childhood pariah with trepidation.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS (3D)


I believe that it is a fair quote to say that this is an instant classic and possibly one to depose Return Of The Jedi from its 32 year number three spot in the list of best Star Wars film, being good enough to join The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars (A New Hope) as one of the best films of the saga so far…

2007 DIRECTOR: Kevin Burns (Contains mild language) This is one of those “let’s read way too much in to everything” type of documentaries, in which every aspect of Star Wars is analysed and assigned a root in existing mythology or history. Also, its talking heads are hardly visible as they are firmly rooted up George…
