Who doesn’t like the new Star Wars Clone Wars animated series?
The animation is slick (especially the non-moving hair), the voice actors are superb and Ashoka Tano is the breakout girlie character of the entire Star Wars universe.

We’ve seen a Star Trek actor – George Takei – make an appearance and had more battles than anyone could possibly count.

It’s all good. And Cartoon Network agrees so they’ve picked up the show for another year.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ is like nothing else on television and has delivered for us on all levels. It has helped us launch a great new night of action-adventure on Fridays,” said Stuart Snyder, president and COO of Turner Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media in a statement.

I dunno about this episode…a little too high and mighty on the moral side.

We’ve got a young female senator – a South African accented Amidala essentially – who needs to rise to the occasion to help broker peace btwn an indiginous group and her planet…

ah well.. seeing snow clone trooper was cool…the pre-cursor to the the snow troopers that storm Hoth in Empire Strikes Back i guess.

Jar Jar continues to amaze and save his friends even though he’s a buffoon….astounding.

We’ve never like JarJar but Clone Wars does its best to try and make him more likable. Another neat episode that nicely wraps up from the last episode.

Not quite sure where that ship in the end came from – since the Republic ship that JarJar and the clones came down in was shot down..guess that was Anakin’s ship they took off in.

This series overall has  become a must watch part of the Star Wars canon with consistenly good shows week in and week out.

Those Weequay pirates….gotta hand it to them they ain’t dumb…though they do sound a whole lot like the Trade Federation Neimodians ..

A fun little episode – why Douku didn’t use some Sith fire to fight a little more – i don’t know..and i guess his Solar Sail doesn’t have hyperdrive? Why wouldn’t he have just jumped ?

Awesome Grievous episode – with some ridiculously cool lightsaber action –

Sure a little saad Grievous killed the Mon Cal Jedi but hey it’s Grievous and he’s got four arms.

Great to see his lair and great to see the Dooku trick too.

But perhaps the most interesting part was Fisto himself – played by a voice actor that sounded Jamaican Rastaman to me. Sure his ‘hair’ fits the bill but i never though of Fisto that way…

Asaaj Ventress is awesome! We knew that Gunray would get rescued but that was great.

And Senate Commandoes? Guess those are the predessecors to the Red Imperial Guards.

All told a tonne of action for a 30 min episode – there was hardly a 3 minutes sequence without some kind of intense action.

That’s what makes this new animated series superb – decent stories- evil villans and non-stop action

There was some early speculation on other sites – that this episode might mark the end of Jar Jar.

NO SUCH LUCK.

Instead we get the bumbling Gungan somehow again managing to be the hero – this time by being mistaken as a Jedi.

It’s actually a pretty neat trick and overall fun little episode – i’m surprised thought that we didn’t see the most famous of all Rodian’s though – that is WHERE WAS GREEDO?? (or did we miss that?).

The capture of Viceroy Gunray – was we know is only temporary – so at some point he’ll get busted loose. Gunray of course was on Mustafar when Anakin/Darth Vader was sent there by Palpatine in Star Wars III to kill off the seperatists after Order 66 was issued.

Back in March we first wrote about the Atom (no longer called Atom Films btw) Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge
well the entry period is now over and it’s time to VOTE!

The official voting page is up at:

http://www.atom.com/spotlights/starwars/challenge/
Unfortunately the ShowMeSciFi.com entry titled ‘Greedo’s Guide to Bounty Hunting‘ didn’t make the final cut. But we’re not sore loosers…no we’re not.

It doesn’t look like Atom in their infinite widom actually included any Fan mashups in the finalist though which kinda sucks because the orignal rules implied that they would. Does that mean that Atom sucks ?! (well maybe but just a little).

Voting ends on July 10th – we don’t have any particular favs (right now at least) though not everything in this contest is new is it?

For example the RvD2 Ryan vs Dorkman video is actually something we reviewed OVER A YEAR AGO when it first showed up on YouTube. Is it awesome? Sure it is but it’s not new.

Greedo’s Guide To Bounty Hunting April 2, 2008

Greedo is no doubt the most famous Rodian in the Galaxy (and likely the only Rodian that many know).

His appearance in Episode IV, was brief but memorable.

And of course with all of Lucas’ revisions, the question of who shot first is always there.

Soo we here at ShowMeSciFi.com decided to focus on Greedo for our Star Wars/Atom Films Fan Movie Challenge entry.

Called : Greedo’s Guide to Bounty Hunting – It’s a neat mashup (we think) that we hope you like. Please do click on the link and go check it out on StarWars.com (and give it 5 stars!!)
