Disney Infinity 3.0 is far from a perfect game. Sadly some of the problems plaguing the first two versions return to rear their ugly head while the new lower price hides an unfortunate side effect. Throw Star Wars into the mix and the much ballyhooed recruitment of Ninja Theory to develop the Jedi fighting style and, along with Avalanche Software's continued Toy Box evolution, the latest Starter Pack overcomes its negatives to deliver the most enjoyable and addictive franchise entry yet.
Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm a few years ago made the Star Wars universe ripe to headline a Disney Infinity installment. With Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens debuting in December, this year was the logical choice for a galaxy far, far away to lead Disney's toys-to-life franchise.
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack carries an Srp of $64.99 or $10 less than the previous installments and the competition. A lower price is always welcome; however, »
We've seen quite a few of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys at this stage, but this is our first look at an action figure likeness of Luke Skywalker as he'll appear in the movie. As you can see he's sporting the same Jedi robes from that leaked image of Mark Hamill on set, and that gloveless robotic hand is on display. Plus, in his left hand he's holding what appears to be the lightsaber he was using in Return Of The Jedi. Whether this figure (along with the likes of Han Solo and Princess Leia) is officially unveiled on Force Friday remains to be seen, but we'll find out soon enough The Star Wars YouTube channel will host the live stream, which kicks off with the first unboxing in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, Sept. 3 (5:45 p.m. Edt on Wednesday, Sept. »

A commercial for two of the upcoming Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys has popped up on Ebay less than a week before the big onslaught of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens toys arrive in stores on Force Friday aka September 4.
The commercial, embedded below directly from YouTube, features Poe Dameron's (Oscar Isaac) black X-Wing fighter being pursued by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) in his command shuttle. It brings back memories of the original Star Wars trilogy when Kenner Star Wars toy commercials ran frequently during cartoons.
"You can build the X-Wing and save the droid (Bb-8)," the ad boasts. "Load the weapons, climb aboard, open the wings, and blast into action... Watch out, it's Kylo Ren!"
Listen carefully to the commercial and you will hear Bb-8 chirping. Is this how Bb-8 will sound in the finished movie? If it's not exact then I suspect the sounds are pretty close. »

This week, Neil Calloway argues that every film director should have to make an ultra low-budget film…
If you don’t know the story of El Mariachi‘s production, then you really should read Rodriguez’s book Rebel Without a Crew, his diary of the making of the film. To raise the money for the film he checked himself into a research hospital to participate in a study and write the script. There he met Peter Marquardt, who he would cast as the bad guy in the film and would later become a video game producer, before sadly dying last year. Rodriguez begged and borrowed favours and equipment to shoot the film (not having a dolly or track for his camera, he used a wheelchair from »

Remake, Remix, Rip-Off: About Copy Culture & Turkish Pop Cinema, 2014
Directed by Cem Kaya
Turkey in the 1960s and 70s was one of the biggest producers of film in the world even though its film industry did not have enough written material to start with. In order to keep up with the demand, screenwriters and directors were copying scripts and remaking movies from all over the world.
Turkish cinema from the 60s through to the late 1980s has always had a huge cult following, but through the rise of the Internet more people have discovered this bizarre brand of cinema. Due to a lack of copyright laws in the country, filmmakers were allowed to take films from the West and remake, remix and rip them off to create “new” movies. Cem Kaya’s Remake, Remix, Rip-Off looks at this incredible story.
The documentary boasts an impressive roster of interviews from »

Black Widow can punch explosions.
Fantastic…Bore. Fantastic…Fourth Worst Movie Ever Made. Fantastic…4%. Or, as some have taken to calling it, just ‘Four’.
It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?

After $1.6 billion in box office takings, a sequel to this summer's mega-smash Jurassic World was always going to be a sure thing. Fans of Rexy, raptor Blue and her crew are in luck because the wheels are in motion for a follow-up.
Details might be scant at the moments, but consider this article (which we'll update as new info drops) your one-stop shop for cast, plot rumours and potential spoilers on Jurassic World 2...
The storyline will see dinosaurs getting weaponised
Vincent D'Onofrio's character Vic Hoskins pushed hard to turn raptors into weapons for war, and going by Colin Trevorrow's recent quotes it looks like this thread is something that'll be explored in the follow-up. »

Kicking things off this week (as we usually do) with The Force Awakens and we were treated to some new footage for the movie via a teaser trailer.

The weight that Dice undertook when they started working on Battlefront is pretty much immeasurable. A little over 10 years since Pandemic’s first sequel released, the level of hype, demand and subsequent frustration there has been for a follow up has remained consistent, and passionate above all else.
Indeed, fans have a lot to say about the upcoming ‘reboot’ of one of the most successful Star Wars releases of all time, and whilst chatter has remained overwhelmingly positive, fans of the originals have been left a little unnerved by some of the creative decisions made by both Battlefront’s developers and publisher. Though it’s almost certain that the original trilogy has remained as the bastion of Star Wars’ quality, the decision to dismiss the ‘Clone Wars’ setting – especially after a wildly successful animated show – hasn’t been too willingly received by would be purchasers of the long awaited revamp. »

Ahsoka gives the Ghost crew some easy advice as they set out to find her mysterious ally in an all-new preview from Star Wars Rebels. Season 2 gets under way this fall, and it picks up with right where Season 1 left off. Ahsoka brings her new friends the head of a tactical droid, telling them to trust her old friend when they finally find him (is it Obi-Wan?). She, on the other hand, is off to hunt for a Sith Lord who holds some all-too important answers in her quest to restoring justice to the galaxy.
Star Wars: Clone Wars fans were surprised and shocked when Ahsoka made her appearance on the Star Wars Rebels Season 1 finale Fire Across the Galaxy. Over the course of six years, we got to see Ahsoka Tano grow from Anakin's padawan to a kickass Jedi. In the final episodes of Star Wars: Clone Wars, Tano was framed for terrorism, »
Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t out until December 18th, some fans have already decided that their new favorite character is the adorable little ball droid known as Bb-8. The character debuted in the first teaser for the film, rolling across a desert service, its little motor whirring as it moved as quick […]

People love Lego. People love Star Wars. Put them together, and you get utter madness! And that's the only way to describe what is going to happen this Thursday at one minute past Midnight, when stores open their doors for Force Friday. A tsunami of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise is going to be flooding toy and apparel shelves. And leading the charge will be Lego. A new commercial has arrived, offering just a taste of what we can expect. And at the center is one very unique X-Wing.
New Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets will allow you to build Poe Dameron's (Oscar Isaac) new black X-Wing. This ship is part of the Resistance, a splinter group of the Rebel Alliance attempting to stop the spread of the First Order across the galaxy. The commercial hints at Poe having to save his ball droid Bb- »
Director J.J. Abrams and his team have had a lot of fun slowly dolling out the names of each new character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, some of which, including John Boyega's Finn and Daisy Ridley's Rey, haven't even been fully revealed yet. But the humans, aliens and ball droids in this latest sequel aren't the only mysteries to be cracked. Each vehicle and domicile seen on screen seems to be getting a unique new name, too. We learned that Domhnall Gleeson's General Hux resides on a space station known as the Starkiller Base, a direct nod to Luke Skywalker's original last name in the first draft of George Lucas's Star Wars screenplay. Now, we get to learn the name of the foreboding new Star Destroyer.
Another internet troll, another takedown - this time by the Star Wars official Facebook page.
On Thursday (August 27), the Star Wars Facebook page posted fan art of Stormtrooper Captain Phasma, played by Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie, but apparently someone on the internet had an issue.
One of the commenters questioned Captain Phasma's armour, posting: "Not to be sexist but it's really hard to tell that's female armour for me."
But Star Wars' social media team didn't let the comment slip, responding in a way that would make fierce Captain Phasma proud.
"It's armour. On a woman. It doesn't have to look feminine," replied the page administrator.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens to Us and UK theaters on December »
On August 7, 1987, "Masters of the Universe" stank up movie theaters across the country and killed any hopes of kicking off a live-action franchise for He-Man and his merry band of heroes (the property is currently in the process of being rebooted with the help of "Thor" screenwriter Christopher Yost). As I wrote earlier this week, "MotU" actually wasn't all bad, with standouts like Frank Langella's Skeletor and Bill Conti's excellent score keeping the film just this side of unwatchable. Glory be! A happy byproduct of my online research arose in the form of a YouTube recommendation for a video entitled "The Making of Masters of the Universe the Motion Picture," which is not, as it turns out, an extra ripped from the film's DVD release but rather a segment from a 2012 documentary entitled "Toy Masters," which boasts the following synopsis on IMDb: "Filmmakers Roger Lay, Jr. and Corey Landis »

As the ending to one of the best films ever says, "Nobody's perfect", and the same goes for cinema, as these 12 great movies with bad endings prove.
Spoiler avoiders, beware, however: there will be in-depth discussion of several twisty movies below, so if you're of a nervous moviegoing disposition, click away now.
What went right: There's a lot to love in Jedi: one of the best lightsaber battles in the series, the Jabba's palace break-out sequence, top notch SFX – the speeder bikes alone – and finally, victory for the good guys. And yes, Princess Leia's bikini, if you're into that sort of thing.
What went wrong: George Lucas. In fiddling with the ending again and again, it's hard to work out what is the "definitive" version is, but however it officially ends – goodbye old Darth Vader, hello young Darth Vader – the final minutes »
