Star Wars: The Clone Wars

PHINEAS STAR WARS dvd

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Nocturna Tim is a typical orphan, round-headed and curious about the night, but when an after-hours misstep lands him in the grip of a creature named Cat Shepherd he finds himself on a very unique adventure. His new friend becomes a guide of sort as he shares with Tim the world of Nocturna, the nighttime world the rest of us sleep through, and shows him the true faces and beings behind our tussled hair, late night noises, dew-covered trees and very dreams. It’s not all fun and games though as a dark shape is floating over the night threatening to steal the stars right out of the sky. This Spanish film is a 2007 release, but its US debut was worth the wait for fans of animated wonder and pure imagination. The story keeps one sleepy toe in the real world even as it reveals an original and beautifully-crafted one behind the curtain of the night, and the animation follows suit as the familiar gets an inventive and enticing make-over. It’s a gorgeous dream of a film with scenes of true beauty and inventive thrills, and it deserves to be seen by more eyeballs. [Blu-ray/DVD extras: Making of, featurette]

This might have been a difficult week for you to keep up with news and necessary stories. Between Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day celebrating, you could have been busy with king cakes and candies, revelry and romance. Also, it had to be difficult to navigate through all the posts and lists related to these holidays, which include our own look at cynical Valentine’s Day films and a Commentary Commentary column devoted to (500) Days of Summer and post-Valentine’s romance tips from Sasha Grey. Of course, now you’re probably too busy this weekend with your free Criterion Collection marathon viewing to review the week in movie discussions, but that’s okay because this Reject Recap post doesn’t self-destruct after today. It’s here for your convenience whenever you’ve got the time. But at some point, check out the biggest and best stories and original content from the past week, from FSR and our friends around the web:

This week… North By Northwest, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Aliens In The Attic, and more!

Controversy is all over the place as Kevin calls for a boycott of Tropic Thunder due to insensitivity to fat people while Neil takes some shots at Tim Shriver. Nothing is sacred, and everyone should be offended at this week’s Fat Guys at the Movies.

As a child of the 70s, this movie brought me back to all the early extended universe stuff I enjoyed as a kid – from the old ‘Droids’ cartoon to the Marvel comic book series (and yes, even The Ewok Adventure and The Star Wars Holiday Special).
