An Ode to Souvenir Pint Glasses, the Most Nostalgic Form of Movie Fandom

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a Goonie.  To me, being a Goonie was better than being President of the United States. Even before I first wandered into the theater for an after-school job, I knew I wanted to be a part of them. It was there I belonged. To me, it meant being somebody in a neighborhood full of nobodies. They weren’t like anyone else. They did whatever they wanted in the Goon Docks. They’d double-park their bicycles in front of Lower Columbia Bowl and nobod...

Adam Driver's Version of Kylo Ren's Backstory Is Realistic and Depressing

Concept Art: Leia’s Lightsaber in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Was Inspired By An Art Deco Lamp

One of the best things about Star Wars is how it distilled dozens of unrelated inspirations into a sci-fi world that felt simultaneously familiar and unlike anything people had ever seen. Tasked with wrapping up the entire Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker didn’t have quite the same freedom to innovate as George Lucas’s scrappy original 1977 film, but distilling reference material into new things is still an essential part of the franchise’s fabric. Case in point: some new concep...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The Details and History That Enrich “The Phantom Apprentice”

“The Phantom Apprentice” , the latest episode in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars,  hits the emotions like a blunt instrument.
