How The Last Jedi Defies Expectations How The Last Jedi Defies Expectations

Here’s a video essay that came out right after I made the post, but it’s interesting and important enough that I want people to see it: Pop Culture Detective takes a look at how The Last Jedi subverted expectations in regard to male heroes and female characters in power (and also why there is a lot of hate towards the…

Ray's the Standard! Ray's the Standard!

As I mentioned a few days ago when writing about Delta and the Bannermen, variations of the name “Ray” are pretty common in Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Is it an ode to the ubiquitous Death Rays, Shrink Rays, and Freeze Rays that once populated the genres? Who knows. Anyway, I put together a list of who I consider to be the top…

I’m on a roll. This one only took me a couple of hours to put together.

I spent all last week fiddling around making another of my posters for films that don’t exist, this time for another Star Wars idea I had of casting Justin Long as Wedge Antilles.

Here’s a genuine Golden Ticket from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. This was at a booth at Comic Con auctioning off authentic Hollywood props.

Where Did George Lucas Really Get Chewbacca and Emperor Palpatine? A Deep Cut Dive Into “Far Out Space Nuts” and “Doctor Who” Where Did George Lucas Really Get Chewbacca and Emperor Palpatine? A Deep Cut Dive Into “Far Out Space Nuts” and “Doctor Who”

Does anybody else remember “Far Out Space Nuts”, a Sid and Marty Krofft show from 1975? Here are the the opening credits:

I follow actor Rahul Kohli on Twitter, he plays Dr Ravi Chakrabarti on iZombie, and he can be quite amusing indeed while he swears at everyone and everything like a drunken sailor.

On SOLO and Failing the Bechdel Test  On SOLO and Failing the Bechdel Test 

SOLO’s first weekend returns are being called disappointing, despite the fact that it’s cleared over $100M domestically. I’m not here to talk about that. I want to talk about how two truly interesting women couldn’t find anything to talk about besides Boys.

Fewer Parsecs than Desired Fewer Parsecs than Desired

There’s a lot of speculating going on about Solo’s disappointing performance, falling about two hundred million below the 300 million expectation for Memorial Day weekend and flopping in China. I don’t blame Ron Howard. Rogue One had reshoots with a different director and that didn’t hurt its performance. I do think…

Solo and What Comes Next Solo and What Comes Next

So it appears Solo: A Star Wars Story isn’t doing so well. It’s only the opening weekend, but with big budget films tending to heavily rely on opening weekend sales and sales from overseas, Solo is off to an unsteady start.

I went to the first showing to-day of the nice new Star Wars movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story. To-day was opening day but there were only five or six other people in the theatre with me. I guess people are getting used to Star Wars movies coming out all the time, though I suppose there were probably a lot more people at…

And Now a List of All the Websites that Already Spoiled THAT Cameo in Solo: A Star Wars Story And Now a List of All the Websites that Already Spoiled THAT Cameo in Solo: A Star Wars Story

This is why I go to the Thursday night premieres. You can’t Google reviews about Solo: A Star Wars Story without seeing the original titles of articles written about a massive spoiler in the movie. I might understand it coming from Vanity Fair, but the hastily written article for CBR is upsetting. Spoilers to follow.

Aurebesh Decoded (updated) Aurebesh Decoded (updated)

In today’s io9 there is a post revealing some details about a character in Solo, gleaned from a LEGO set. I was looking at how cool the character is, with his animal skull helmet with words carved in it, and wondered if anybody had figured out what the words were.

The Factor Awakens The Factor Awakens

I knew that Rian Johnson was fond of putting references to esoteric ‘80s computer and video game trivia in his movies — one of the tokens on the ship DJ and BB-8 steal from Canto Bight is a Zorkmid — but it looks like the entire opening sequence in The Last Jedi is a tribute to an obscure Activision game called The…

The Case of Fan Outrage v. The Last Jedi The Case of Fan Outrage v. The Last Jedi

I am a huge Star Wars fan, collecting the toys for 26+ years, going to two iterations of “Star Wars Celebration,” and now writing about it in my free time. But through this time, I have also come to terms with flaws that have always been in the original films. To my delight, The Last Jedi (TLJ) pointed to a future…

Intergalactic Women's Day Intergalactic Women's Day

After pointing out the scarcity of female writers on Star Wars: Rebels a couple days ago—the series had only one, Nicole Duboc, who wrote two and a half episodes (the series finale also had Lucasfilm producer Kiri Hart credited alongside five male writers)—I thought to-day, being International Women’s Day, would be a…

Baby's First Star Wars? Baby's First Star Wars?

Another chapter of the Star Wars saga drew to a close last night with the series finale of Star Wars Rebels. Coming from much of the same creative team, notably showrunner Dave Filoni, as the beloved Clone Wars, Rebels had its good points but suffered from greater restrictions with regards to depictions of violence…

A Rebel's Journey Through Time A Rebel's Journey Through Time

One thing was made clear by last night’s two new Star Wars Rebels episodes—the show is a lot better looking than it was in season 1. It looks about as good now as Clone Wars looked in its last couple seasons so I guess Dave Filoni finally convinced Disney it was worth spending money on a show like this. If only Rebels…
