Star Wars: Fan Cuts Together Rogue One’s Ending With A New Hope’s Opening

"Rogue One" Spliced with "A New Hope" v.2 from Barre Fong on Vimeo.

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was an experiment from Disney and Lucasfilm that could have fallen flat. In the past, the franchise had expanded its universe through the use of other media like comics and books. However, never have the Star Wars films dared to venture outside the Skywalker storyline in the film form. It was a bit of a gamble, but one that had the potential to pay off.

However, while Rogue One was the first film not to follow the main throughline set up in the past several decades, it still had strong ties to that world. Taking place just prior to the events in A New Hope, it still very much had a lot of the same DNA, the same main reference points, »

Is Black Adam A Hero Or Villain? Dwayne Johnson Answers!

17 February 2017 3:55 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It was always interesting to us for the longest time why DC thought it necessary to hire someone like Dwayne Johnson to portray a villain — Black Adam, to be exact — in the DC Extended Universe. When his involvement in the franchise was first announced some time ago, a lot of fans wondered first why they’d lock down a villain so many years in advance, and why they’d select a baddie before the goodie — in this case, Shazam. It’d be like them picking a Joker before picking a Batman, right?

Well, yes and no. While Black Adam is traditionally something of a villain, Johnson was accurate in calling him more of an anti-hero. My own personal crackpot theory for the longest time was that he’d be the main villain in Justice League. The end of the film would see him fleeing and defeated, and he would arise »

Scott Reviews Margaret Betts Novitiate [Sundance 2017]

Without wanting to go full “war on Christmas” here, I don’t think it would a stretch to say the cinematic landscape is not particularly bountiful with serious explorations of the Christian faith. It mostly falls into the range between reductive family dramas like Heaven is For Real, near-faithless epics like Exodus: Gods and Kings, or flippant dismissals of the whole scene like Sausage Party. I wasn’t particularly certain Sundance would be the place to go for an earnest depiction, but I wandered into this Vatican II-era nun drama nonetheless, hoping for some spark of honest engagement. I got a good deal more than a spark in return.

Cathleen (Margaret Qualley), despite having not been raised Catholic, decides at age 17 to become a nun. »

Cool Videos: How to make a proper Big Kahuna burger from Pulp Fiction

5 January 2017 5:42 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Some of the food we see in movies looks so damn good it's enough to make you wanna drop everything and go feast until you explode a la Terry Jones in The Meaning Of Life. One of those scenes is from the classic Pulp Fiction in which Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) takes a big bite of a Big Kahuna burger, then washes it down with some Sprite. The burger chain in the film does not exist in real life, so one man has... Read More »
