Star Wars: The Clone Wars - "Altar of Mortis" Review

The bizarre yet compelling events on Mortis continued here, as we saw a great deal more of   Son   – the physical embodiment of the Dark Side.   There was some great moments with Son, as in both dialogue and voice inflection, he conjured familiar moments from the Star Wars series said by the likes of   Darth Vader   and   Palpatine .   Sam Witwer   did a terrific job conveying all of this and channeling dark side users past and present. [ Click Here for my interview with Sam Witwer about playing Son .]   I also enjoyed some of the dark humor to the character, as when he nonchalantly explained to   Daughter   that the reason he tried to kill   Father   was, "He is so selfish and was taking too long to die, so I decided to help him along."    Read More... //tv.ign.com/articles/114/1148024p1.html

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS “Altar of Mortis” Review

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS "Altar of Mortis" Season 3 Episode 16 - "Altar of Mortis" is the middle episode of a three episode arc taking place on Mortis that starts of with Obi-Wan, Ahsoka and Anakin attempting to leave the planet. Anakin must have been so exhausted by everything in the last episode that he immediately decides to take a nap as soon as soon as he’s back on the ship. If I had just encountered Force Wielders on a strange planet inside a strange spaceship who seemed to know a little too much about me, not to mention, kidnapping my closest companions, I’d be a little too wired for a nap, but that’s just me. Anyway, as he’s napping, he has a dream influenced by the Son, that invites Anakin to join him in restoring balance to the universe, not by joining the Sith, but rather by destroying both the Sith and the Jedi.

'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' recap: Ahsoka Embraces Her Dark Side

"…Or so they think." Isn’t that the best type of foreshadowing? It’s the kind that only an omniscient narrator can give, and it was how Tom Kane, our disembodied chronicler of that Galaxy Far, Far Away, ended his especially bombastic intro to "Altar of Mortis" last night. That’s right, folks. Just as Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka thought they were out, Mortis pulled them back in. And it all began with a dream. Like in Luke’s vision in that mythically creepy cave on Dagobah, Anakin was confronted with… himself. Of course, his alter ego soon transformed into the Son, the Force-wielder who embodies the Dark Side on Mortis. Apparently, the Son felt that Anakin could most easily be seduced to the Dark Side in his dreams, a kind of Force-assisted inception, if you will.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - "Witches of the Mist" Review

Well, damn that was cool! As Star Wars fans, we all love those moments when something truly bad ass happens, and "Witches of the Mist" delivered in that regard big time, culminating in some incredibly awesome lightsaber battles.  But the build up to all of this was strong too. Okay, the Republic Commandos cameo was just a tease – they brought some bodies back, but didn't get involved in the action – but I'm confident we'll see them again later. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan and Anakin were tasked with tracking down what Obi-Wan called a "reckless, impulsive animal" – who was of course Savage Opress. Read More... //tv.ign.com/articles/114/1145524p1.html
