The Only Problem With Thandie Newton's Solo Character Is That There Isn't Enough of Her

  • Popsugar

Warning: very mild spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story below!

When we first meet Val, a smuggler, in the beginning of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Han (Alden Ehrenreich) stumbles upon her and Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) in the middle of plotting a heist - and he wants in. From there, Han, who has just unexpectedly met and joined forces with Chewie (Joonas Suotamo), travels with Beckett and Val to the snowy mountains where they're supposed to pull off an epic, midair caper. With her quick wit and sarcastic blows to her partner, Beckett, Val (played perfectly by Thandie Newton) quickly becomes one of the standout performances of the film.

Adding to our love of the character is the fact that Newton is the first black woman to play a major role in a Star Wars film, an accomplishment that she isn't taking lightly. "I

The Evolution of Sandra Bullock, From ‘Speed’ to ‘Ocean’s 8’ (Photos)
Since Sandra Bullock first made it big in the 1990s, she has starred in some of Hollywood’s biggest critical and commercial successes, becoming one of the most successful actresses of her generation and winning an Academy Award along the way.

Love Potion No. 9” (1983)

Bullock gave one of her first memorable performances in the 1983 film “Love Potion No. 9”, starring opposite Tate Donovan as a biologist who experiments with a potion that makes her irresistible to the opposite sex. The film was panned by critics but gave Bullock one of her first big roles.

Speed” (1994)

Bullock found her breakout role in the action thriller “Speed”, which became an unexpected critical and commercial success following its 1994 release. Bullock starred as a spunky passenger who works with two police officers–played by Keanu Reeves and Jeff Daniels– to thwart a terrorist from blowing up a bus full of people.

‘The House That Jack Built’ First Reactions: ‘Lars Has Gone Too Far This Time’ As 100 People Walk Out — Cannes

‘The House That Jack Built’ First Reactions: ‘Lars Has Gone Too Far This Time’ As 100 People Walk Out — Cannes
Lars von Trier once had small-screen aspirations for “The House That Jack Built,” but his stab (sorry) at a serial-killing narrative premiered at the Cannes Film Festival Monday night. As promised, the writer-director brought gore to the Croisette; tickets even included a scènes violentes (“explicit violence”) warning. A notable segment of the 2,400-seat Grand Théâtre Lumière audience revolted against what they saw: Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh reported that 100 guests exited in protest, while others on social media estimated half the film-goers departed early:

I’ve never seen anything like this at a film festival. More than 100 people have walked out of Lars von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built,’ which depicts the mutilation of women and children. “It’s disgusting,” one woman said on her way out. #Cannes2018 pic.twitter.com/GsBGCoyHEG

ZZap! 64 Annual 2019 Kickstarter now underway

Following the success of last year’s Crash Annual publisher Fusion Retro Books have started a Kickstarter campaign for an annual celebrating the ZZap! 64 magazine. If you were a Commodore 64 owner then ZZap! 64 was the magazine to go for, not just for reviews and previews but also for the humour and the excellent cover work. Even though I’m a devout Spectrum lover the Commodore 64 was an amazing machine and ZZap! 64 was a brilliant mag but if my words aren’t enough to convince you then have a look at the Kickstarter trailer below.

Back in the 80s and early 90s Roger Kean and Oliver Frey of Newsfield Publishing were responsible for bringing gamers not only ZZap! 64 but also Crash for the Zx Spectrum and the short lived Amtix for the Amstrad Cpc. These magazines, particularly ZZap! 64, became extremely popular to thousands of gamers and quite possibly because of the

Venice Film Festival to Honor David Cronenberg With Lifetime Achievement Award
Director David Cronenberg will be honored by the Venice Film Festival with its Golden Lion for lifetime achievement.

The Canadian horror auteur, known for a wide range of edgy films such as “Videodrome,” “Dead Ringers,” “A History of Violence,” “Cosmopolis,” and “Maps to the Stars,” was last on the Lido in 2011 with psychological thriller “A Dangerous Mind.”

In a statement, Venice artistic director Alberto Barbera praised Cronenberg for managing to venture beyond the constraints of the horror genre from the start of his career and having “shown that he wants to take his audiences well beyond the cinema of exploitation.”

Cronenberg, who is 75, said: “I’ve always loved the Golden Lion of Venice. A lion that flies on golden wings – that’s the essence of art, isn’t it? The essence of cinema. It will be almost unbearably thrilling to receive a Golden Lion of my own.”

Weekend Menagerie: A Bull, A Bunny And A Go-rilla

Walt Whitman once said, ‘I see great things in baseball. It’s our game, the American game. It will repair our losses and be a blessing to us.’ You could look it up.” — Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon) in Bull Durham

Bull Durham, Ron Shelton’s beloved ode to the piquant ambience and perhaps more elusive spirituality of baseball, especially the minor league variety, is staring down its 30th anniversary—the movie debuted on June 15, 1988, and upon its release almost instantly entered among the ranks of the best movies ever made about the game.

One of the things that made it seem so fresh in 1988, and why it doesn’t seem date or stale even now, is that Bull Durham dismantled over a decade of post-Rocky expectations as to what audiences wanted out of a sports movie—there are no big-game, all-or-nothing scenarios played out on the field, just comedy, disappointment,
