Ahsoka Trains Padme In Latest Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny Episode

The latest episode of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny season 2 has arrived online, courtesy of the official Disney YouTube channel. The animated webseries initially launched earlier this year and received a warm reception for its emphasis on the female characters of the Star Wars saga and for its impressive voice cast. That’s continued so far with four entertaining outings that have hopped around the franchise’s history. In the latest instalment, we go back to the events of The Clone Wars.

Titled “The Starfighter Stunt,” episode 4 features Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) giving Padme Amidala (Catherine Taber) some flying lessons. When a droid starfighter jumps on their tail, though, the novice pilot must use her newfound skills to get herself out of the deadly situation.

The firm friendship between Ahsoka and Padme was always a welcome aspect of The Clone Wars and it’s something that lends itself perfectly to Forces of Destiny.

The Nine Lives of Cat Stevens: Yusuf Islam Embraces His Musical Past on The Laughing Apple

The Nine Lives of Cat Stevens: Yusuf Islam Embraces His Musical Past on The Laughing Apple
It’s not quite fair to call The Laughing Apple a comeback album. Since 2006, the artist who beguiled listeners in the ’70s as the spiritually curious Cat Stevens has released three discs under the mononym Yusuf—short for Yusuf Islam, his chosen moniker after adopting the Islamic faith in 1977. These works were his first foray into Western music after shunning the industry in the wake of his religious conversion, during which time he sold his guitars and focused instead on charity work and theological study. Fans were grateful for any new output following the decades of silence, but Yusuf’s

  • Cinelinx
Jesse's saga is continuing in Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2 and the adventure is coming to consoles, PC, and mobile platforms a lot sooner than you may think. 

Although the choice made by players in season one will carry over, the new season is accessible by new and returning players alike. New to this season is going to be Telltale Game's unique new multiplayer feature "Crowd Play," which allows friends and family to engage with the adventure together by helping the player decide the direction of the story from any mobile device with an online connection. 

"Now that Jesse and the gang have vanquished the Wither Storm, saved the world, and become totally super famous heroes, life has gotten a bit more...complicated. With more responsibilities and less time for adventure, old friendships have started to fade -- at least until Jesse's hand gets stuck in a creepy gauntlet that

Minecraft: Story Mode Returns For A Second Season On July 11

If Minecraft: Story Mode‘s first eight-episode run wasn’t quite enough to satiate your appetite for all things blocky, you’re in luck – Telltale has confirmed that a second season is on the way.

Spread across the usual five episode structure established with Telltale’s other interactive adventures, all choices made during the course of season one will, according to Telltale, carry over, although it should also serve as a suitable jumping off point for new players, should they wish to skip what’s come before.

Second Opinion – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, 2017.

Directed by James Gunn.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and Sean Gunn.

Synopsis:

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

The sequel to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t quite reach the dizzying heights of the first but it is an entertaining, heartfelt and worth addition to the universe.

Starting soon after the first film, the Guardians are on a mission to stop a big CGI monster from stealing some magical batteries. What ensues is a hilarious opening sequence as the adorable Baby Groot (still voiced and mo-capped by Vin Diesel) proceeds to dance around the danger. Rocket (Cooper perfectly on

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow: you know these names as superheroes who comprise a team – the Avengers. Star-Lord, Drax The Destroyer, Gamora: these are also superheroes who make up a team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. So what – if anything – differentiates these two savior squads? An Avengers film thrills through action, while Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 strikes development depth and marvels at cosmic swirls of psychotropic ether.

By way of sequel furtherment, James Gunn has created far more than an offbeat Marvel franchise. His collection of misfits represent the most personal, emotionally-tethered personas across the entire McU, soulful and composed beyond marketable costumes or A-list names. Soak in the psychedelics, kick out the jams and zoom alongside the galaxy’s zaniest outlaws once again – Vol. 2 rocks with the goofiness of an air-guitar virtuoso, even if storytelling skips a few beats (Nicole Perlman does not return as co-writer).

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie review: 2 same 2 spurious

MaryAnn’s quick take… Thinks it’s edgy and transgressive, the punk little brother of all those other stodgy comic-book movies, but it isn’t. It’s just slightly more candy-colored. I’m “biast” (pro): big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t crazy about the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

You were insufferable to start with,” groans Gamora, the badass green chick who should be the hero of the Guardians of the Galaxy series, but who must give way to Star-Lord, aka doofy Earther Peter Quill, because he’s the boy and the boy always gets to be the leader, even in space. She says this, rolling her eyes — and oh, I so sympathize with her, and no, that does not make this movie particularly “female friendly” — after a revelation about Peter’s parentage that is at the center of the tedious,

Marvel Music/Hollywood Records have released the digital versions of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 songs-only album and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 original score album by composer Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “John Wick Chapter 2,” “Watchmen”).

The film opens in U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is filled with great action, humor and performances, but it is also infused with a new mixed tape and soundtrack, a dynamic that resonated deeply with audiences in the first film as evidenced by the success of the soundtrack album. The Grammy-nominated “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart. The album was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” films are beloved for their eclectic soundtracks, thanks to a heady mix of classic rock, pop, and old-school R&B. We don’t usually praise them for their David Hasselhoff rapping — but here we are. On Wednesday, Marvel released the set list for the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” soundtrack, which features tunes from the trailers like “Fox on the Run” by Sweet and “Chains” by Fleetwood Mac, but also other classics like “Father and Son” by Cat Stevens and “Mr. Blue Sky” by Elo.
