How Will You Watch The Clone Wars Lost Missions?

Originally published on Coffee With Kenobi

Finally, we get to witness the last season of a wonderful animated series that ended when it was in its prime, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  The Emmy winning series has chronicled that legendary moment in time first mentioned by Obi-Wan Kenobi in his hut on Tatooine.  Thanks to the Clone Wars, viewers get to experience the majesty, adventure, intrigue, and events that we have wondered about since 1977.  In fact, it could be argued that this groundbreaking series added much needed gravitas, characterization, and pathos to not only the relationship between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, but fleshed out the Prequel era in a way we all dreamed they would when we first learned that the story of Anakin Skywalker would be revealed.  This is in no way to demote the value of the Prequels (I love them, albeit in a different fashion than the Original Trilogy), but to laud the achievements in animation, storytelling, and character that George Lucas, Dave Filoni, and company accomplished through this Emmy award winning series.

Anyone reading this Blog will no doubt agree with the premise presented here.  More than likely, you were also one of the millions rejoicing on February 13th when Star Wars gave us the early Valentine’s Day present which revealed that on March 7th, the sixth and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be released on Netflix in the US and Canada.  Not only that, but we also get several director’s cut episodes, as well as the first five seasons and the feature film.  Our melancholy from last March has been replaced by ebullience and enthusiasm.  Fans have been promised thirteen new episodes, including arcs featuring new information on Order 66, as well as a powerful arc featuring Yoda and the heretofore previously unknown origins of the Sith.  The trailer alone (released on 2/24) has started an onslaught of speculation, celebration, and consternation regarding what will happen next.

However, this revelation has led Star Wars fans to a new quandary heretofore not previously explored …how do we watch the new season?  Do we binge, or do we savor?  This is an intriguing dilemma, to be sure, but one with considerable consequences.  Much like the Jundland Wastes, this decision should not be traveled lightly.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
