Week 1 – ‘Star Wars Review Season’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

And welcome to the first instalment of the ‘Star Wars Review Season’!

Yeah, I decided not to call this ‘Star Wars Film Review Season 2’ as I originally had in mind to a couple of years back. That’s because the four ‘Star Wars’ reviews I’ve got lined up for this month aren’t all focused on films. The reviews are on two movies; one TV special and one ‘Star Wars’ novel I’ve read and heard. Continue reading

Week 3 – ‘Star Wars Film Review Season’

Last time in ‘Star Wars Film Review Season’!!!

Padmé Amidala is now Senator of Naboo in ‘Attack of the Clones’?! But that’s odd, since she was the Queen in ‘The Phantom Menace’! Reunited with Anakin Skywalker, she is! Anakin is now 10 years older and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s apprentice. He’s in love with Padmé! But he can no-do, since he’s a Jedi!

Yoda is more CGI than usual in this film. But he can do a good lightsaber duel with Christopher Lee who played Dracula, Saruman or whatever! A clone army is built. Somehow the Jedi get the clone army to fight for them. Too much CGI to explain that part of the movie! 😀 Begun the clone war has!

Will the third ‘Star Wars’ prequel movie be considered a masterstroke by creator George Lucas?!

Well that depends! Does Anakin Skywalker look good in a long hair cut? I don’t think so! 😀 Continue reading

Week 2 – ‘Star Wars Film Review Season’

Last time in ‘Star Wars Film Review Season’!!!

OH NO! ‘The Phantom Menace’: considered by many to be one of the worst ‘Star Wars’ films ever?! That’s impossible! Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi rescue Queen Amidala of Naboo from a greedy trade federation. Queen Amidala gets confused on whether she’s the Queen or handmaiden Padmé! 😀

WHAT’S THIS?! On Tatooine, they meet Anakin Skywalker as a boy?! He can ride a good Podrace, but that could easily kill him! He’s not that annoying as Jar Jar Binks though, is he? BUT WAIT! Look out, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan! Darth Maul, who looks like the devil, fights you in a deadly lightsaber duel!!!

Will the second movie in the ‘Star Wars’ prequels be better than the first?!

Stay tuned! SAME ‘STAR WARS’ TIME, SAME ‘STAR WARS’ CHANNEL!!! Continue reading

Week 1 – ‘Star Wars Film Review Season’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

And welcome to the ‘Star Wars Film Review Season’!

For the next six weeks, we’ll be looking into the first six movies of the ‘Star Wars’ saga to celebrate 40 years of the franchise. I’m more of a ‘Star Trek’ fan than a ‘Star Wars’ fan, but that doesn’t stop me from sharing why I enjoyed these movies so much and to find what’s good and bad about them. Continue reading
