Huge Last Jedi Continuity Error Proves Rey Should Be Dead?

Huge Last Jedi Continuity Error Proves Rey Should Be Dead?
A rather significant continuity error has been discovered in The Last Jedi. Much has been made of director Rian Johnson's contribution to a galaxy far, far away, good and bad. The movie has been divisive for sure, mostly due to bold story choices. However, now there's a conversation going on online not due to some story choice that fans can't agree to disagree over, but there's a pretty major continuity error during one of the movie's best scenes that seems pretty much impossible to ignore.

Needless to say, from here on out, this post contains major spoilers for The Last Jedi. The scene in question is just after Supreme Leader Snoke is killed, leaving Kylo Ren and Rey to fight his Praetorian Guards. It's easily the best fight scene in the movie and there's a lot going on, but since the Blu-ray is out now, some fans have been

More Last Jedi Secrets Revealed in New Star Wars 8 Dialogue?

More Last Jedi Secrets Revealed in New Star Wars 8 Dialogue?
Benecio Del Toro's shady thief character DJ has not yet been shown in either of the two Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailers that have debuted over this past year. So getting to hear some of his dialogue has offered new insight into the character. This intel arrives as four new Hasbro Force Link Star Wars figures begin to make their appearance on store shelves across the country. And the dialogue they contain may reveal some new secrets about The Last Jedi.

Yes, we are only two months out from getting to finally see The Last Jedi play in theaters across the world. But that hasn't stopped fans from trying to learn as much about the mysterious plot as possible. So far, only three minutes of the two hour movie have been revealed, with substantially more behind-the-scenes footage tacked onto that. Benecio Del Toro has been shown, albeit briefly in the sizzle reel.

The Heart Guy TV Review (aka ‘Doctor Doctor’)

A little bit Northern Exposure and a little bit Doc Martin, The Heart Guy (Doctor Doctor in its native Australia) is another entrant in the “talented Doctor forced to tend to small town rubes” genre. Much as it may seem that we wouldn’t need another run at such a pinpoint premise, it turns out that we may need a few more, because it apparently can’t miss.

The uniqueness to the spin here is that our Australian heart surgeon, Hugh Knight (Rodger Corser), is put on the Impaired Registrants List after his party lifestyle takes an ugly turn, and he has to serve a year as a Gp in a rural area as his punishment. The kicker is that he is assigned to his own hometown, which means he gets to see a lot of his parents and his ex-girlfriend, Charlie (Nicole de Silva), who is now married to his brother,

"It’s way out there. It’s very remote. It’s uncharted. It’s a mineral planet and so there are mines on it."

Johnson goes on to say that there are some “beautiful design elements and I hope some really unique ones that we’re able to bring into it." As for the red dust that the speeders are kicking up,

Beyond's Burkley Duffield, Tim Kring and Adam Nussdorf on "A Wild Ride"

  • TVfanatic
Freeform's Beyond is finally upon us!

This fall I had not only the pleasure of interviewing Beyond's "Holden," Berkely Duffield as well as executive producers Tim Kring (Heroes) and Adam Nussdorf (who also created the series), but to attend an exciting event with them in New York City.

The first thing you'll notice when watching the interviews is the terrible lighting.

I considered holding back the videos because of their quality.

But that would have meant denying you what I consider one of the most interesting components from a place like Nycc: chatting with someone in a group setting while they're relaxed and comfortable.

I hope you agree, and despite the lighting, enjoy getting to know Berkely Duffield, Adam Nussdorf and Time in this setting.

Adam Nussdorf had some great insight into what he considers the touchstones of the series, and it's not about traditional "superheroes," which some people

Mls Season Begins: La Galaxy Cruise, New York Snooze

The 2013 Major League Soccer Season began last weekend, with Los Angeles Galaxy picking up where they left off in December.

A first career hat-trick from Mike Magee was added to by Robbie Keane as the Mls Champions cruised to a 4-0 victory over Chicago Fire. Former Chelsea and Tottenham goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini made a shaky start to his league debut, almost gifting Chicago an easy goal when he failed to clear the ball properly early in the match. After that it was all Galaxy, with Magee netting his first half opener thanks to a slight deflection that took it away from goalkeeper Sean Johnson. His second was a curled effort from the edge of the box; his third a brilliant volley amid chaos following a long throw into the penalty area. Keane scored a late fourth when Omar Gonzalez nodded Michael Stephens’ cross down for him to poke home at the near post.
