Marvels Star Wars Kanan - The Last Padawan #2 Review

By Steve Potter 
Be Warned! Possible Spoilers ahead! 
First of all I will recap #1 for you,  and for those that don’t know I will quickly summarise who Kanan is.

The adult Kanan can be found in 'Star wars Rebels' on Disney XD at the moment and also in the book 'A New Dawn' tells more about how the crew of the 'Ghost' came to be. But the comics so far focus on Kanan as a youngling or as he was known back then 'Caleb Dume' when he was a Padawan learner within the Jedi Order and mentored by his Jedi Master, 'Depa Billaba'.  The Empire has just taken an iron grip on the Galaxy....

Just a quick recap of the first comic of the series.  Caleb is fighting in 'The Clone Wars' alongside his Master and their Clone Troopers. After a battle they take refuge in a cave along with 2 Clones. All seems well, Caleb feels he has found his place in the Galaxy and Master Billaba gives the Padawan a Jedi Holocron....

"Execute Order 66" ~The Emperor 

I'm new to comics so will be offering a layman's perspective if you will, and I have only just collected the new Marvel Star Wars. Everyone was raving about #1 in this arc but it did not grab me that much to be honest, but this issue was a lot better for me with much more going on story wise and I liked the way it tied in with what we know from the time 'order 66' was issued from Kanan's perspective.  It starts where the last one left off....always useful, when the order is given all hell breaks loose and Kanan runs for his life. The story is very well told and art is great, like the mix of first person perspective from Kanan. There's a nod in there to 'Rebels' with mention of a 'Meiloorun' fruit, which was a focus in one of the episodes, and quite a comical comment about a trooper losing his head in more ways than one! So without giving too much away this is when Caleb has to grow up and fend for himself, whist initially being hunted down by those he considered comrades moments before. looking forward to the next one as It gets interesting when he receives a message from a certain Jedi master....

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
