Every Ghostbusters: Afterlife Main Character Ranked Worst To Best

The development of the "Ghostbusters" franchise has been fascinating to watch unfold. Ivan Reitman's 1984 original is one of the rare movies that could be described as "perfect." How could you possibly combine fantasy, broad comedy, horror, satire, sharp dialogue, improv, and the strong personalities of the cast into a comprehensive 105 minutes? Not every beloved classic of the '80s holds up in a modern context, but "Ghostbusters" has proven it can stand the test of time.Expectations were certai...

The Book Of Boba Fett Will Explore 'Power Vacuum' Left By Jabba The Hutt, Jon Favreau Says

The typical "Star Wars" workplace isn't really that different from any of our own. The old boss -- in this case, that ol' slime ball Jabba the Hutt -- made an abrupt and unexpected exit at the hands of Luke Skywalker and his pals partway through "Return of the Jedi." Though the film continued on to much more pressing matters concerning, you know, the overthrow of an evil imperial regime and all that, that clearly must have left Jabba's entire operation in shambles. One can only imagine how many ...

The 18 Best Action Movie Actors Ranked

Gone are the days in which a marquee name could draw in a crowd all on its own. Studios now tend to prioritize projects based on their relation to established franchises or source material, and the number of actors who can successfully sell tickets for roles that aren't part of a recurring series or comic book adaptation are remarkably low.Ironically, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is perhaps the only actor of his generation with a consistent fanbase, but despite his winning personality, Johnson's tr...

The 14 Best Star Wars Creatures Ranked

"Star Wars" just wouldn't be "Star Wars" without the decades of world-building that went into creating that galaxy long ago and far, far away. A variety of planets, their people, and their environments create unique settings for the fantastical stories we grew up with. Life itself is a necessary ingredient for making a fictional world feel lived in, and the creatures of "Star Wars" are not only part of these intricate landscapes, but memorable in their own right.The artists that bring "Star Wars...

Cool Stuff: Humongous LEGO AT-AT Playset Is Perfectly Scaled To The Imperial Troops Minifigures

LEGO keeps churning out massive building brick playsets that have the potential to bankrupt many collectors out there. From the recent "Home Alone" house playset inspired by the holiday classic to the forthcoming playset inspired by "The Office," there are simply too many LEGO sets to throw money at. That's especially true when it comes to "Star Wars" LEGO sets, and yet another humongous set has just been revealed in the form of an Imperial AT-AT Walker in the Ultimate Collector Series line.

The Book Of Boba Fett Trailer: The Original Mandalorian Returns To Conquer The Galaxy

Disney+ has at last unveiled the trailer and poster for "The Book of Boba Fett," the newest "Star Wars" TV series from Lucasfilm. Already from the first footage, we get an idea of the tone the show is going for, harkening to gangster epics like "The Godfather" or "Scarface," with the title Mandalorian clone/bounty hunter (Temeura Morrison) demanding a certain level of "respect" from the Tatooine underworld he now rules. Starring Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, "The Book of Boba Fett" is executive prod...

Dune Book To Screen: Denis Villeneuve's Film Flows With The Spirit Of Frank Herbert

In the "Dune" mythos, there's a precedent for "filmbooks," training imprints left directly in a user's mind by means of mnemonic pulses. Frank Herbert's original 1965 novel left similar imprints in the minds of readers, who have been seeing "Dune" as a movie in their heads for over half a century now.Various attempts have been made, down through the decades, at realizing Herbert's vision onscreen. These have left us with a documentary ("Jodorowsky's Dune"), an '80s film adaptation (David Lynch's...

Hayden Christensen is once again returning to a galaxy far, far away. The actor, who portrayed "Star Wars" character Anakin Skywalker in 2002's "Attack of the Clones" and eventually became Darth Vader in 2005's "Revenge of the Sith," is now set to appear in "Ahsoka," the upcoming live-action Disney+ streaming series centering on fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano.

Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Thinks Star Wars Peaked With The Empire Strikes Back

You can add "Dune" director Denis Villeneuve to the chorus of voices who think "The Empire Strikes Back" is the best "Star Wars" movie. We've already proven it with an infallible survey this year, but just in case you doubt the veracity of our science, Villeneuve — the preeminent director of modern science-fiction films, from "Arrival" to "Blade Runner 2049" to "Dune" — is here to clear up any confusion.In a new interview with The Playlist, Villeneuve discussed the influence of "Dune" on "Star W...

The 12 Best Star Wars Books Ever Written

In the "Star Wars" universe, films and television shows may be the big events, but literature has been integral to the franchise since the very beginning. The first piece of "Star Wars" media ever released was the official novelization by author Alan Dean Foster, titled "Star Wars: From The Adventures of Luke Skywalker," which hit bookstores in November 1976, months before the film arrived in theaters. Two years later, Foster returned to pen the first official spinoff novel, "Splinter of the Min...

No Time To Die Spoiler Review: Daniel Craig's Final Outing As James Bond Strives For Closure

"No Time to Die" comes 15 years after "Casino Royale," arguably the best James Bond movie. 2006 introduced the world to a rising star named Daniel Craig, who was known for his work in films like "Road to Perdition" and "Layer Cake," but who had yet to really break out and become a household name. Since then, we've been adventuring through the typical franchise peaks and valleys with Craig's Bond, and now, we're here at the end.And it does feel like the end.

Lucasfilm has announced a handful of new "Star Wars" books that will be telling brand new tales set within a galaxy far, far away. And it sounds like these books will be filling in some crucial gaps, in addition to possibly connecting to other major projects such as "The Mandalorian," if we allow for some speculation that is. The new titles include "Star Wars: Shadow of the Sith," "Star Wars: Brotherhood," "Star Wars: Stories of Jedi and Sith," and "Star Wars: Padawan." Now, let's have a closer ...

Can House Of The Dragon Overcome Its Last Jedi Problem?

After the backlash to Game of Thrones season 8, prequel show House of the Dragon will have to overcome a problem that's similar to the one seen after Star Wars: The Last Jedi. When Game of Thrones ended in 2019, it did so as the biggest TV show in the world. Many had long expected it to go out in a blaze of glory, but instead it simply sparked fires across the internet; to say it was divisive would perhaps be an understatement, as the final run of episodes were mauled by critics and audiences a...

Star Wars: Visions Understands The Force Better Than The Sequel Trilogy

Disney+'s Star Wars: Visions told a series of beautifully written and animated Star Wars short films, which, in some cases, understood the Force better than the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Visions exists outside of Star Wars canon, telling nine original, standalone, stories that can reimagine or adhere to established Star Wars lore as they please. The sequels are part of the official and ongoing Star Wars canon universe, which began in 2014 and includes the original six films in addition to the s...
