It’s Valentine’s Day weekend, and unless you want to spend the rest of the year sleeping on the couch, odds are you’re making plans to woo the special lady in your life. Or if you are that special lady, you’re making plans to sit back and be wooed. It’s good to be a woman. Love isn’t easy and, no matter how hard we try, things don’t always go as planned. But no matter how your Valentine’s Day turns out, find solace in this simple fact: It could be worse. At least your significant other doesn’t have tentacles. These are the strangest romances in science fiction.

Jenny (Karen Allen) sees him and, confused and conflicted, befriends him. She helps him on his journey to leave Earth and return home, and in the process falls in love with him.

Live Action Star Wars TV Series Back On?

fb share tweet share

star warsWhile a few people are still on board with the Clone Wars cartoons, Star Wars has for the most part, lost all the momentum it built up with the prequels. The old franchise ain’t what it once was, and it’ll take a lot to get casual fans interested again. A good way to start, might be for George Lucas to finally deliver on at least one of his better promises: Give us live action Star Wars on television.

Lucas has been teasing a live action Star Wars TV series for years now, and every time it’s talked about, it’s talked about as if it’s right around the corner. But it never is. So far it’s been all talk. That may be about to change.

fb share tweet share

rainNew episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars are back on television this Wednesday at 8:00pm with the debut of “The Landing at Point Rain” on Cartoon Network. Unless Lucas finally gets his ass in gear on that long-promised but little delivered live-action Star Wars TV show, or unless those wild rumors about a new trilogy turn out to be true, this is pretty much your only way to get a Star Wars fix. Eat it up.

“The Landing at Point Rain” sounds as if it’s more than just a standard Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode. Director Brian Kalin O’Connell says of it, “George [Lucas] wanted ‘Landing at Point Rain’ to be as intense as any live-action movie about the assault on Omaha Beach”

Below we have a clip from “The Landing at Point Rain”. Here’s a taste of what you’re in for after the jump.
