This week I’m heading back to a galaxy far, far away and giving you another fun topic; Darth Vader versus Kylo Ren. Both of these characters have delighted us, scared us, and provided their respective trilogies complex and engaging storylines that keep us coming back for more. And that’s why I made them the topic of this week’s segment. Enjoy!

Darth Vader

Darth Vader has had quite the journey. As a young man, he was an accomplished Jedi Knight who was believed to be the Chosen One who would bring peace back to the galaxy. But Palpatine had another plan in mind.

He used Anakin’s deepest, darkest fears against him and turned him into the heavy-breathing, lightsaber-wielding, masked-cyborg, Darth Vader.

What’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Love Story?

Last week on this weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? the topic was about Marvel’s love stories and so it only seems right that this week’s segment focuses on another incredible franchise’s love stories; Star Wars. There are a lot of enjoyable elements to Star Wars but for those who love a good romance, this franchise has that too. So, on that note, let me list these memorable love stories.

Han and Qi’ra

Han, as a young man, was madly in love with his fellow Corellian sweetheart, Qi’ra but this romance was not to last. Qi’ra moved on and became loyal to the Crimson Dawn, eventually leaving Han and ending their relationship. It was a shocking moment for Han and it would be a turning point in his young life.

Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.)

Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!

1. A Rogue One Surprise

Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

What’s Your Favorite Scene in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’?

Solo: A Star Wars Story just recently came out on Blu-Ray and that means it’s available to watch whenever I may please. It’s a great film too. It’s a riveting adventure from beginning to end and truly captures the essence of what Star Wars films are all about. But what makes it such a fun installment to Star Wars? The film’s various scenes of course. From beginning to end this movie deals out incredible moments that will bring a smile to any casual Star Wars movie watcher’s face. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite, I’m asking you what your favorite scene in Solo is? Here are the film’s most important moments.

The Corellia Speeder Chase

The film doesn’t waste time getting to the action and the speeder chase that takes place as Han and Qi’ra strive to escape Corellia is beyond awesome. It features Han’s incredible piloting skills before he got his hands behind the controls of a ship complimented with an upbeat musical score that made the scene even more riveting.

Who’s Your Favorite Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most beloved Star Wars characters for one simple reason; he’s awesome. He wowed fans when he was introduced as the Star Wars version of the Wizard Merlin in A New Hope. And he was easily the coolest character in the often harangued prequel trilogy. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite I’m tackling one of the greatest Jedi that has ever lived; Obi-Wan Kenobi. Enjoy!

Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi might’ve died in A New Hope but he lived on in ghost form throughout the classic trilogy, randomly delivering Luke wisdom and being awesome. One of my favorite scenes in The Empire Strikes Back is when Obi-Wan Kenobi visits Luke in Hoth. It’s the first time we see Obi-Wan in physical ghost form and it’s always fascinated me seeing him standing in the snowy gloom telling Luke to go to the Dagobah system. Old Obi-Wan is awesome.

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Band?

Wow, this week has gone by fast and that only means it’s time for another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? And this week it’s a fun topic in the form of Star Wars bands. Star Wars bands aren’t popular to a casual Star Wars viewer but to us fans the bands are some of the coolest characters to appear in the franchise. They provide galactic beats that are either hilarious, iconic, or downright cool. And that’s why I’m here to ask which Star Wars bands happens to be your favorite? Here they are.

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Character of the Current Trilogy?

Another glorious week has passed and it has definitely been an exciting week for Star Wars fans. The Clone Wars cartoon was announced to be getting a final season which will debut on Disney’s new streaming service and the official cast announcement for Episode IX was released on Friday. So, in the spirit of Star Wars, this week’s segment is focused on, well, Star Wars characters of the current trilogy. Who’s your favorite of the new troupe? Here are the characters.

Finn

Until Finn there had never been a story about a stormtrooper-turned-rebel fighter and that’s why Finn is so great. He’s a special man and on top of that he is as heroic as they come. He didn’t have to turn against the First Order but he did because he knew the First Order was wrong in what they were doing. He didn’t have to save Poe but he did (mainly because he needed a pilot’s help.) He didn’t have to save Rey from getting killed by the stormtroopers on Jakku but he did because he’s a good man.

I could keep going on and on about his heroics but you get the point. All of the heroic things he did he didn’t have to do. He could’ve remained a mindless stormtrooper who does what he’s told despite the obvious fact that he would be doing wrong or he could make a difference and defy those who wanted him to kill innocents without mercy. I’m glad he took the latter. (Finn’s great.) 🙂
