20 Things We Learned From the New ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Commentary: ‘Inglourious Basterds’ References, Alternate Titles, Cassian’s Backstory, and More

A long time ago, in this very galaxy, the first live-action Star Wars spin-off movie was released in theaters. Much has been said about the production of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but two of the credited writers, Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, recently participated in a watch party of the film and shared several stories about the making of the movie, including which scenes were reshot late in the game by Tony Gilroy. Since Rogue One’s release, fans have been wondering which specific scenes...

The Emperor Reborn: A Not-So-Brief History of the Biggest ‘Star Wars’ Villain and Why He Matters

(Welcome to The Emperor Reborn, a three-part series examining the role of Sheev Palpatine and the long shadow he casts over the Skywalker Saga, including the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.) “No one’s ever really gone.” – Luke Skywalker Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be the ninth and final episode of the Skywalker Saga, according to director JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 31: Captain Clegg!

The penultimate night of 32 Days of Halloween XII is upon us! Before we get to the Big Day itself, we’ll start with an absolutely fantastic cover: it’s “Sympathy for the Devil” by Motörhead. It’s the last song Lemmy recorded with the band before his death. And what a song to go out on. It kicks some serious demonic arse. Then I think we should take a breather with this, the original Gary Larson’s Tales from the Far Side from 1994. Because sometimes you need the macabre in a way that onl...

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 24: Homicidal!

First, we go to the band Baroness and their excellent double album, Yellow & Green. It’s “Board Up the House.” And working on a massive Halloween playlist over in Spotify has brought something important to light: just because a song has something Halloweeny-sounding in its title, doesn’t mean it’s a very Halloweeny song. So check the lyrics. For example, Matt Pond PA has a song called “Halloween.” It’s not very Halloween-y. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a damn good song. So somebody might say the s...

Sherlock Holmes in the Movies: Ranking 70 Feature-Length Films Starring the Iconic Detective [Part Two]

(Months ago, writer Rob Hunter set out on a wild and dangerous case: he would watch and rank as many feature-length Sherlock Holmes movies as possible. This is part two of his investigation. Part one can be read right here.) Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes may not have been the first fictional detective – that honor belongs to Edgar Allan Poe’s C. Auguste Dupin from 1841’s “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” – but he’s quite possibly the most well-known and ubiquitous in pop culture. He’s a fascinati...

Medusa Touching the Algorithm

One of the obnoxious things about modern streaming services is how difficult they make discovery. To be fair, it's not an easy problem to solve. If you have many thousands options on your platform, there's only so many ways to traverse the landscape, and it's an easy decision to just fall back on "popularity" as the final arbiter. Novelty junkies and film obsessives really only make up a tiny proportion of a given service's audience, so that often works well enough. On the other hand, the notio...

The Scariest Movie Zombies of All-Time

The Scariest Movie Zombies of All-Time Zombies, ghouls, revenants — they’re all undead humans who attack and consume the flesh of the living. Zombies are the most recognizable monsters in cinema, but there wouldn’t be any if it weren’t for George Romero. His 1968 horror masterpiece Night of the Living Dead introduced the world to the hordes of flesh-eating rotten corpses. Once only relegated to horror, zombies now exist in all forms of pop culture. Now, we have zombie movies for kids, zombie ...

Exploring the Many Connections Between ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Doctor Who’

(Welcome to The Movies That Made Star Wars, a series where we explore the films and television properties that inspired or help us better understand George Lucas’s iconic universe.  In this edition: Doctor Who.) There’s a lot of crossover between Star Wars fans and Doctor Who fans. There’s a lot to love about both franchises, but some might not know how closely the two franchises have intertwined from the beginning. Doctor Who began in its historic run in 1963, close to fifteen years before S...

6WH: Week 3 - Scream Factory

Taking my cue from week one's celebration of physical media and The Criterion Collection, this week I'm watching three films from Scream Factory. A sub-label of Shout Factory starting in 2012, Scream Factory focuses on releasing classic and cult horror films on discs. While not having the storied history of Criterion, their releases feature many of the same selling points. Most releases are new transfers/remastered/restored and feature gobs of extra features. Only in this case, many of the films...

‘Death Kiss’ Trailer: A Charles Bronson Lookalike Blasts Through Criminals

Legendary film star Charles Bronson starred in five Death Wish movies over the course of his career, but the actor passed away in 2003. There have been dozens of knock-off films since then (and even a remake starring Bruce Willis earlier this year), but none like Death Kiss, a new low-budget affair that appears to resurrect Bronson from the grave for another round of revenge against the scum of the streets. But appearances can be deceiving: that’s not a resurrected Bronson or even a digital rec...

Stephen King Adaptation ‘In the Tall Grass’ Casts Patrick Wilson as a Guy Who Really, Really Shouldn’t Have Gone in That Tall Grass

Peter Cushing made a living and defined his legacy as a horror icon by “classing up” B-movie productions. He’d show up, looking and sounding like the smartest man in the room, and suddenly even the most ridiculous scenario made perfect, logical sense. If he believes it, then you believe it! I wouldn’t have pegged Patrick Wilson as the American answer to Peter Cushing, but here we are. After lending his “intelligent everyman” qualities to the Insidious series, the Conjuring series, and Bone Toma...

Carrie Fisher to appear in Star Wars Ep. IX, with Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams

Unused footage of Carrie Fisher from The Last Jedi will be put to use in Episode IX, reports Hollywood Reporter. Mark Hamill will return as Luke Skywalker, as will Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian. In January 2017, Lucasfilm issued a statement assuring fans that there were no plans for a digital re-creation of Leia, after reviving late actor Peter Cushing's Grand Moff Tarkin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In April 2017, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy said Fisher would not appear in Ep...

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to Watch With ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

It’s here. Whether you hate Marvel enough to sabotage their movies’ IMDB scores or love them enough to get Stan Lee’s face tattooed on your back, the studio has done something impressively unique in cinema by executing 19 movies over ten years to lead us all to an unthinkable team-up of dozens of superheroes. Avengers: Infinity War is a gargantuan achievement with a mind-scrambling amount of moving parts that had to fall into place over the past decade. It’s such an insane prospect that it’s ea...

A body double, CGI skull, and secret filming sessions all helped 'Blade Runner 2049' earn a VFX Oscar nomination

John Nelson, the Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor on "Blade Runner 2049," walks through how he made a CGI version of the franchise's memorable Rachael character for the movie. The process took a year of trial and error, which was all done under secret shooting sessions and a code name. Sean Young, who played the character in the original movie, was also brought on to supervise. With a total of 1,200 visual effects shots in “Blade Runner 2049” — that comes out to 1:45 of the movie’s to...

VOTD: How ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Recreated the Replicant Rachel

Visual effects are getting better and better every day. While some didn’t quite buy the digital recreation of Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (not to mention have problems with the ethics of such a production element), it appears Blade Runner 2049 succeeded in a somewhat similar visual effects feat. In Blade Runner 2049, we see the return of Sean Young as the exceptionally unique replicant named Rachel from the original Blade Runner. However, instead of merely...
