STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS
Honestly I didn't really care that much to see this but I had seen all he Star Wars movies and figured I might as well watch this. Now they have a series of these on Cartoon Network that I would watch right before Family Guy, The Boondocks and other Adult Swim shows. So I catch them on and if I'm bored I watch. Honestly the TV show isn't horribly bad. I mean it's not really my thing but it's okay to watch. So I got a small taste of what the movie was like by watching the shows.
Now this movie has some cool animation and special effects but still I'm not to big on an animated Star Wars movie. Since it's a childrens movie I had to come to grips with the fact it's not as dark as the originals. But honestly everything is left open-ended basically. See this movie takes place before the 3rd movie so Anakin is still his whiny self and not killing younglings yet. Anyways, this movie has decent action scenes and introduces some cool characters such as a Clone Trooper Captain Named Rex. Actually first off I want to say is this movie is a lot cheesier than the originals. Yea I know that may be hard to believe but this movie is cheesy in a different way.
I don't get how Anakin has an apprentice when he himself is barely a full Jedi Knight. They wouldn't even let him on the council in the 3rd movie so they're gonna give him an apprentice? Remember how I said shit was left open? Yea, like why is his apprentice not in the 3rd one? It never says she dies in the movie nor does it even hint in to it. In my opinion it was a horrible idea to give him an apprentice. It just fucks the story up. Then there is some sith assassin who doesn't get killed but she's not mentioned in the 3rd one either. I understand it's a childrens movie so they wont have people getting killed like crazy but come on give me some closure. What is the point of bringing in a new character without giving me solid details as to what happened. As a matter of fact I'm seaching for answers right now. I just don't like movies where dudes ain't getting chopped in half.
A COUPLE OF MINUTES LATER
So yea I searched and the series isn't over yet the first season still has 12 episodes planned. So I don't know what happens to everyone. Also the storyline kind of seemed to small to base an entire movie on even though it meant a lot for the cause it just seemed like a badly written story.
Basically this movie is cheesy and very mellow dramatic and I got bored. But it is a good childrens movie and has some cool effects and characters to keep most Star Wars fans satisfied. After seeing this I think they should just leave Star Wars alone now and let it die, but live in the hearts of the fans.
