The idea that Star Wars (and storytelling more generally) is something to be celebrated would seem, at first glance, to be obvious. However, in a world where the mere mention of George Lucas or the Star Wars prequels or Jar-Jar Binks almost automatically becomes a cheap punchline, as if no-one could possibly be allowed to hold an opposing, positive opinion of them, and where creators like Joss Whedon are harrassed on Twitter (possibly being a contributing factor in his decision to delete his account recently) for daring to write a character in a way certain fans don't approve of, the point obviously needs to be made.
(Whatever the specific arguments may be for or against Black Widow's characterisation in Avengers: Age of Ultron, let's not make things personal, and let's not lose perspective. It is a film with a lot of things going for it, after all.) As Joss Whedon himself sings on Commentary! »
Star Wars isn't the only dormant George Lucas cinematic franchise that's being revived thanks to the producer's deal with Disney. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that the company has begun "talking about" making a new Indiana Jones film. Harrison Ford's fedora-wearing treasure hunter last appeared in the franchise's 2008 fourth installment Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. However, with the next installment still years away, it's unclear whether or not the 72-year-old Ford will return to crack his trademark whip.

Earlier this week we celebrated Star Wars Day, and boy did it bring a lot of goodies related to the next few movies, especially this year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But what about the other Lucasfilm titles? When is Willow day? When do we celebrate Tucker: The Man and His Dream? When do we get news on the Howard the Duck movie that George Lucas is sure Disney will make at some point? Most important, though... When do we get another Indiana Jones movie? Actually, along...

Yesterday was Star Wars Day, and boy did it bring a lot of goodies related to the next few movies, especially this year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But what about the other Lucasfilm titles? When is Willow day? When do we celebrate Tucker: The Man and His Dream? When do we get news on the Howard the Duck movie that George Lucas is sure Disney will make at some point. Most important, though... When do we get another Indiana Jones movie? Actually, along with yesterday's Star Wars festivities, we did get an update on the Indiana Jones franchise. In Vanity Fair's June issue, which is where much of the latest The Force Awakens details and images came from, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that the chronicles of the adventuring archaeologist will...

Val Kilmer is said to be recovering after a major health scare. The Tombstone star was rushed to UCLA Medical Center on Monday night after he started bleeding from his throat and ended up undergoing emergency surgery to treat a tumor, TMZ reported Friday. The Santa Monica Fire Department confirmed to People that a call came in at 11:31 p.m. on Jan. 26 and the patients was transported via Als to UCLA's Santa Monica location. While Als stands for advanced life support, that doesn't necessarily mean Kilmer's situation was that dire; the Als crew is dispatched for other types of situations as well. Kilmer—whose most memorable films include Willow, Top Gun, The Doors, Heat, »
Quick…name a favorable film where the landscape is run by (or at least partially include) the demographic of little people as part of the instrumental storyline? C’mon…it should not be that difficult, okay? If you want to mention say Darby O’Gill and the Little People then that would fine. How about Bad Santa or Poltergeist for that matter?
In That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People we will take a look at some of the mini megastars that inhabited these movies and contributed their fair share of entertainment value to the on-screen proceedings. The debate as to whether some of these selected films featuring these pint-sized performers are considered positive, exploitative or dismissive are not up for discussion (although one of these considerations could apply in the minds of a few folks). Instead, we want to celebrate the inclusion of »
