Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Review: Holiday Specials

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil might be on hiatus after the fall finale, but Disney XD still treated us to an awesome holiday special. Up first, we have "Stump Day," a signature Star approach to the holidays; goofy, fun, and just a bit frightening. It’s winter in Mewni and there’s a celebration going on in Butterfly Castle, but it’s not an Earth holiday, it’s Stump Day! This is Star’s favorite holiday, and oh boy does she take it seriously. She takes part in the festivities with glee, looking on with bright eyes as her father recounts the tale of Stump Day’s origin. Long ago, mewman explorers arrived at the shores of Mewni, only to be hit by a great storm. The explorers took shelter from the storm behind a giant stump. They survived and carved thier initials into the stump to commemorate the day. Every year after, they celebrated the day by honoring the stump for all it has given them. They must celebrate and honor the stump — creating a replica of the stump in their home — for 24 hours, or else. READ MORE...

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Review: Inter-Dimensional Mysteries

We’re back with another whole week of new episodes of Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, so join us for our review of season three, episode twelve of the Disney XD cartoon! At long last, we return to dimension X-103, last seen in (arguably) one of the best episodes of the series, "Running With Scissors." In the episode, Marco was stranded in this dimension, domain of the dimensional scissor forger, Heckapoo, and could only get back after earning new scissors. It took 16 years, and Marco fully aged into a muscled, dragon-motorcycle riding badass. However, as soon as he returned to Earth, where time ran at a normal rate, he turned back to his 16-year-old self. At the beginning of "Night Life," 30-year-old Marco has returned, riding his dragon-cycle with Heckapoo on the back. Together, they close rogue portal, one of many that’ve been opening up across all dimensions. Later, the two celebrate a good nights work at a tavern, one outside of Heckapoo’s dimension, since Marco is back to his normal age. Marco tells Heckapoo how he missed this life, adventuring around and seeing weird things. READ MORE...

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Review: It All Comes Together

Alright folks, this is the final episode of Star Vs. The Forces of Evil this week, and it’s a doozy. "Monster Bash" is a double length episode that serves as the mid-season finale of season three, brining all the overarching stories together. Okay, so, do you remember Mina Loveberry? She’s that crazy Mewni warrior woman who previously served under Queen Moon and was last seen trying to take over Earth. Viewers might be quick to write off this Sailor-Moon-looking nutcase as a minor side-character, but she helps brings together every major plot of this season. READ MORE...

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Review: Return to Form

After a four month hiatus, we’re finally getting new episodes of Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, so join us for our review of the eighth episode of season three! Continuing the trend of this season, "Lint Catcher" picks up right after the last episode left off. Marco shows up in Star’s room on Mewni, and it’s not quite the reunion he’s hoping for. Star is surprised to see him, but not necessarily happy. To make things worse, she was in the middle of hanging out with Tom and Marco is mistaken by the guards for an intruder. However, when Marco claims he was a "knight" of sorts, given the cape by the King, the guards simply laugh at him. Turns out, Marco’s beloved cape, which he’s been wearing for weeks, was actually the King’s meat blanket. Don’t ask us what a "meat blanket" is (besides perhaps a double entendre) because all we know is that there also exists a "cheese doily." As hilarious as this is, it is also disheartening to Marco, who’s brave acts now feel worthless. But, he rallies and offers to start as a squire by the suggestion/teasing of the other knights. But who should he squire for? Star knows. READ MORE...

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Review: Love Geometry

After a four month hiatus, we’re finally getting new episodes of Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, so join us for our review of the seventh episode of season three! Demoncism The relationship drama continues with this episode, picking up a just a bit after "Club Snubbed." Star is calling Tom, trying to meet up for the corn shake they talked about at the ball, but he’s not picking up. In fact, he’s been acting weird since their dance together, something Star confides to Ponyhead, who shows up nervously sweating. Ponyhead is clearly hiding something, and Star easily get the information out of her gossipy friend, Tom is getting a demoncism. What is a demoncism, you ask? Though it’s not exactly made clear until the end of the episode, it is implied it is some sort of ritual to remove demonic essence, and Tom is doing it in secret. From what Star knows, they’re the worst, and she wants to stop Tom from putting himself through the painful procedure. However, they are exclusively private rituals held in a secret location, and only invitees can attend. This doesn’t deter Star, thus she and Ponyhead go on a mission to find Tom and stop the demoncism. READ MORE...

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil Review: Peace and Darkness

After a four month hiatus, we’re finally getting new episodes of Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, so join us for our review of the sixth episode of season three. Club Snubbed Similar to the previous episode, the first segment of episode six throws us into a slice of Star’s magical princess life. This time it’s the Silver Bell Ball, a meeting of the various royal famils of Mewni. At the ball the heirs of these families must formally dance with each other, representing peace harmony between the kingdoms. Amongst theses heirs is Tom Lucitor. Fans will remember this demonic prince of the underworld as Star’s persistent ex-boyfriend who wants to get back together. But now, Tom seems different, he isn’t acknowledging Star at all. Ponyhead convinces Star that she is being "club-snubbed," that Tom is trying to make her jealous by dancing with everyone else, a tactic that Ponyhead herself implements to get the attention of a cute prince. In the end, though it turns out that Tom, after having learned of Star’s crush on Marco, is giving Star space. He has accepted her feelings for Marco and wanted to do the right thing. But it wasn’t the right thing, he only ended up completely ignoring her. READ MORE...
