‘The Phantom Menace’ and the goodness of Star Wars nostalgia

27 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A long time ago…in 1999, the pop culture zeitgeist was caught in a Star Wars maelstrom. Writer-director George Lucas and his crack creative team had gone back to the well that made space opera cinema what it is known and appreciated as today by producing the first Star Wars movie in 16 years. Yes, it was difficult to fathom, but the legion of Star Wars fans the world over had waited over a decade for a new film. Not since 1983’s Return of the Jedi, which concluded what is today commonly known as the ‘Original Trilogy’, had they rejoiced in a new cinematic adventure. This new endeavor was to not to be a sequel, but rather a backstory that would relate how Anakin Skywalker, once a proud Jedi Knight and defender of justice, was encouraged to renounce his altruistic ways, embrace the dark side of the Force, and become Darth Vader, »

11 of action cinema's great movie villain pairings

25 February 2015 8:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From early Bond to 21st century sci-fi, here's Ryan's pick of 11 unforgettable villain pairings from action cinema history...

You're generally lucky if a movie has one genuinely great villain in it, let alone two. This is probably because creating a villain takes great acting and writing - it's one thing to create a preening character who stomps around a story doing unpleasant things, but creating a villain who's three-dimensional, witty, scary and above all memorable requires considerable skill.

Every so often, a movie comes along which gives us not one, but two classic villains, with the personality of one complementing the other. A familiar dynamic was once laid out by Steven Spielberg: one is smart and eloquent , while the other is the tougher, more violent of the pair. It's a template that we've seen time and again in cinema, but it's only occasionally that both characters leap from the screen. »

The Calloway Way – Why The New Alien Movie Might Disappoint

22 February 2015 5:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway is wary of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film…

When Neill Blomkamp released some of the artwork for his proposed Alien film, I was impressed – concept art for science fiction films is often better than the films themselves – and mentally filed it in my “great unmade films” drawer. It sat there alongside the Gladiator sequel scripted by Nick Cave, in which Russell Crowe’s character is resurrected and fights in various battles throughout history, Return of the Jedi directed by David Lynch (he was offered it, and turned it down because he did not want to helm a science fiction film where he was not in control of the material; ironically his next film would be an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. I cannot imagine what Lynch’s version of Jabba’s Palace would look like) and the unmade Jurassic Park sequel that featured dinosaurs, obviously, »

Star Wars Battlefront will reportedly tie in with Star Wars: The Force Awakens

21 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s one of the most anticipated video games of 2015, but so far we know very little about EA’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, save from what little information we’ve been able to gather from the E3 2014 behind-the-scenes trailer, and a piece of concept artwork showing Rebel Commandos on Endor. Well, the folks at Making Star Wars claim to have uncovered some details about the game, and specifically how it might tie in with J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens.

- Star Wars Battlefront will feature segments in which you play as both the good guys (Old Republic, Rebellion and Republic) and bad guys (Separatists and the Empire). It was specifically stated that there will be a small portion of prequel trilogy content. You will participate in a couple of battles from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the space battle above Coruscant from the beginning of Revenge of the Sith. »

J.J. Abrams: Some of the Star Wars Rumors Are True

20 February 2015 6:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you heard a rumor about the upcoming Star Wars movie this week - well, it just might be true. Or not. J.J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, addressed the issue of leaked plot points for the highly anticipated film. And while he wouldn't address any specific leaks, he did say some theories circulating aren't as outlandish as others. "We did the best we can to preserve the story for the audience, but it doesn't always work," Abrams, 48, told the BBC at the Irish Oscar Wilde awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, where Star Wars »

Holding Out For a Heroine: On Being a Woman and Loving Star Wars

19 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a little girl in possession of a good imagination must be in want of a heroine. At least, this was the truth of my childhood. Like many people of my generation, my early pop culture intake was a healthy mix of Disney (this included an extensive library of worn-out VHS in the classic white plastic clamshell packaging), Saturday morning cartoons (from DuckTales to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Japanese imports repackaged for North American kids (Power Rangers, Speed Racer). But my one true love was science fiction. And anyone familiar with my work on this website could probably guess that this love begins and ends with Star Wars. Or really, it begins with Princess Leia.

I don’t remember my first viewing of the original trilogy; it exists in my memory as a constant presence. And like any healthy child weaned on TV and movies, »

When ‘Star Wars’ Changed

16 February 2015 4:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I could barely contain my excitement. Star Wars, a film I had probably watched maybe 20 or 30 times was going to be re-released theatrically. My parents weren’t big movie fans, but my uncle had offered to take me and my best friend to see it. A fitting choice considering it had been my uncle who introduced me to the Star Wars universe. He gave me the trilogy box-set after I had watched his copy of Batman (1989) so many times that I could quote lines by heart. As much as I loved Batman, Star Wars completely overwhelmed my five year old self. I loved movies already at a young age, but this was a phenomenon that the entire world could tap into.

A New Hope was now dubbed the “The Special Edition” and the picture was rumored to have millions of dollars in special effects added following it’s 20th anniversary. »

307 days until Star Wars: The Ewoks were supposed to be Wookiees

13 February 2015 2:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How you feel about Ewoks is probably determined by your age. If you were a teenager or an adult in 1983 when “Return of the Jedi” came out, you probably loathe them as the kid-ification of “Star Wars.” If you were one of those kids? You probably thought they were adorable and spent time re-enacting ”Ewoks: The Battle for Endor” in your backyard. For the latter, even as adults the Endor natives are protected from derision by a cocoon of 80s nostalgia. But the Ewoks were originally supposed to be Wookiees. Way back in Ye Olden Days™ of 1977, George Lucas sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about Star Wars runaway success. I recommend reading the whole the whole article, because it is littered with fun trivia about things that never came to be. However, for now, this is the relevant bit. When asked about the anthropological background of species like Jawas and Wookiees, »

Star Wars: Return of the Legends

13 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Writing couple paragraphs of last week’s S7AR Wars about a fan-restored Blu-Ray quality version of the original trilogy, I considered becoming a collector of various “despecialized” cuts of the original trilogy I learned were floating around the internet.

Then, I got an e-mail from El Mayimbe with some images and info that made me think I might not have to dig through the annals of the internet to get a Blu Ray copy of the un-Special Star Wars trilogy. Maybe I don’t have to turn to the likes of internet smugglers and pirates to get the original Original Trilogy fix.

Disclaimer - Gonna show you these, but then talk about how they aren’t real. Ready?

Got sent these mockups of the original trilogy Blu Rays with the “Legends” banner from a designer who claimed to have made them at the request of Lucasfilm.

Mark Hamill Talks Star Wars, Kingsman, & Signs Off As 'The Joker'

13 February 2015 5:50 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Mark Hamill called in to the Schmoes Know Podcast last night, and had a blast talking to the guys about his projects past, present and future. Obviously what we're all most interested in his his imminent return as Luke Skywalker in J.J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and though he doesn't really give too much away (obviously), he does drop a few tidbits here and there. For instance, when asked if his initial perception of how Luke would evolve after Return of the Jedi wound up being accurate, he seems to dispel a pretty big rumor that was doing the rounds about the character. "Well part of the answer to that question… The final chapter indicated Luke would be terribly conflicted and might give in to darker impulses. Maybe in the direction of betraying someone before realizing the error in his ways. I was completely wrong in that assumption. »

'Star Wars' Bites: Billy Dee Williams Teases More Lando, a Fan Cruise, a Fan's Funeral and More

12 February 2015 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Return of Lando: Could Lando Calrissian show up in the new Star Wars trilogy? Actor Billy Dee Williams teased in an interview, "I have a feeling I’m going to show up. There’s nothing I can really discuss about it at this stage." He hints that his character could be reintroduced in the second installment, Episode VIII, just as Lando made his first appearance in the second part of the original trilogy. "I did Empire and then I did Return of the Jedi, but I came in after everyone else was introduced … So I think they’re probably proceeding in that way."   Star Wars Cruise: Disney Cruise Lines will now offer a Star Wars day with some packages beginning in January 2016. Guests on board can enjoy the first six...

308 days until Star Wars: Darth Vader's lightsaber was white in original 1977 trailer

12 February 2015 2:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We all know George Lucas has a penchant for tweaking the visual look of the Star Wars universe. But did you know the tendency dates all the way back to 1977? If you get deep enough into the story of how “Star Wars: A New Hope” came to be, you discover the lightsabers were originally meant to be a practical effect. When it became apparent the technology just wasn’t up to the task yet, Nelson Shin was brought in to create an animated glowing effect. During an interview with CNN, Shin said: “ [the lightsabers] look[ed] like a fluorescent tube” Which is exactly what they Still looked like when the trailer was cut in 1977.   At some point between the trailer and the May 25, 1977 opening, Lucas added the color to the lightsabers and the rest was Sith history. Check out the whole trailer below! Bonus trivia! Practical limitations would come into play again »
