2018 Kaedrin Movie Awards

Welcome to the thirteenth annual Kaedrin Movie Awards! Lucky number 13! A baker's dozen! The idea is to recognize films for various achievements that don't always reflect well on top 10 lists or traditional awards. There are lots of formal award categories and nominees listed below, but once those are announced, we'll also leave some room for Arbitrary Awards that are more goofy and freeform. Finally, we'll post a traditional top 10 list (usually sometime in early/mid-February). But first up is ...

VOTD: Watch Cher’s Speech in ‘Clueless’ Performed by Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield & More

Clueless is one of those generation-defining comedies that has stood the test of time. It’s one of the best representations of the ’90s, albeit with a focus on a very niche demographic of upscale Los Angelenos living a mostly superficial, carefree life. Much of the film’s greatness comes from Alicia Silverstone‘s pitch perfect performance as the teenage Cher, a bubbly, confident and charming spoiled girl who manages to somehow be both down to Earth and up in the clouds at the same time. But wha...

How ‘Star Wars’ Borrows From ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’

(Welcome to The Movies That Made Star Wars, a series where we explore the films and television properties that inspired (or in this case help us better understand) George Lucas’s iconic universe. In this edition: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid .) Losing the screenwriter William Goldman was a blow to the world of cineastes last month. He was one of the sharpest writers ever to come to Hollywood and he had a distinct way of playing a tense scene for laughs and making giggle at how good i...

Someone Used a Deep Learning AI To Perfectly Insert Harrison Ford Into "Solo: A Star Wars Story"

Andrew Liszewski, writing for io9: Casting anyone other than Harrison Ford in the role of Han Solo just feels like sacrilege, but since Ford is now 76 years old, playing a younger version of himself would be all but impossible. Or at least impossible if you rely on the standard Hollywood de-aging tricks like makeup and CG. Artificial intelligence, it turns out, does a pretty amazing job at putting Ford back into the role of Solo. The YouTube channel "derpfakes" has been posting videos that demon...

Watch ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Clips with Harrison Ford Thanks to Deepfake Artificial Intelligence

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Honest Trailer: An Adaptation of Han Solo’s Wookieepedia Page

No one asked for an origin story for Han Solo, but earlier this year we got one anyway in the form of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Sure, you might have forgotten that movie came out in theaters towards the beginning of the summer, but now it’s out on Blu-ray and DVD, so everyone who skipped it in theaters can scoff at it from the comfort of their own home. Also doing plenty of scoffing is the Solo A Star Wars Story Honest Trailer, which accurately notes that this is the darkest Star Wars movie yet....

Halloween Costume Idea: Han Solo in Trapped in Carbonite

Earlier this year, Solo: A Star Wars Story became the franchise's first bomb. (It took in $400 million at the worldwide box office, but reportedly needed to make $500 million just to break even.) So it's unclear how many people will be dressing up as Alden Ehrenreich's rendition of the character this Halloween. Fans of the Empire Strikes Back version of Han, however, might be thrilled to pony up for this costume: The "Star Wars Adult Inflatable Han Solo Carbonite Costume" comes from Japan...

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Deleted Scene Takes Us on a Splashy Han and Qi’ra Chase

Solo: A Star Wars Story introduced us to a young Han Solo who was a bit wet behind the ears. But in a deleted scene from the Star Wars standalone film, the film takes that quite literally. A Solo deleted scene gives us an extended look at Han and Qi’ra’s early chase scene through the streets of Corellia, as the pair escape from Proxima’s gang members. But with the baddies and their snarling Corellian hounds closing in, Han and Qi’ra are forced to get wet. Solo Deleted Scene Fleeing thro...

The summer movie box-office sizzled this year, but much more is keeping Southern California’s production industry hot

The summer movie season of 2018 did a lot better than last year’s. But as hot as the summer box office was this year, the Southern California production economy might even be hotter — or at least stronger. For the moment, at least, its strength is not dependent on the whims of a Han Solo epic, or the latest giant mass-market adventure. All told, summer movies brought in a North American gross of $4.394 billion, up 14.3 percent from summer 2017, according to comScore, the Sherman Oaks-based globa...

(Welcome to A Different Point of View, a column where we explore the supporting characters of the Star Wars universe and discuss why they deserve more time in the spotlight.) Star Wars, at its core, is a family story about generations of the Skywalker family. Or, at least it used to be. But now that Lucasfilm is under the Disney umbrella, a wider audience is being exposed to the variety of stories that can exist in a galaxy far, far away. Those stories can include characters that would otherwi...

Rumor: ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Might Bring Back Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi

With the future of Star Wars spin-off movies up in the air, some of the legacy characters from the Star Wars saga who were meant to get their own installments in the Star Wars Story banner are left in limbo. However, a new rumor indicates that one of the characters rumored to have his own Star Wars spin-off might make a return to the primary saga.

The cast of "Solo" had no idea about that major appearance from an iconic Star Wars character at the end of the movie.  Han Solo actor Alden Ehrenreich said he only learned about the cameo a few months ago.  Please don't read this post if you don't want to know about the spoiler.  Warning: There are MAJOR spoilers for "Solo: A Star Wars Story" below.

Solo and Assorted Star Wars Thoughts

I'm late to the party I guess, but here are some assorted thoughts on Solo: A Star Wars Story and more general Star Wars musings. Solo is fine. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you? It's a movie that doesn't need to exist and maybe Star Wars should be more than just fine, but that's where we're at. Even the stuff I don't like is mostly fine. When Solo was announced, the general consensus was that it was a pretty dumb idea and that no one really cared about it, but then ...
