  • George Lucas Explains Why Greedo Shoots Han Solo First in Star Wars (in revised edition)

    Deep inside a compelling Washington Post profile of George Lucas is the Star Wars creator defending perhaps his most infamous bit of Special Edition tinkering: having Greedo shoot Han Solo first rather than the scruffy-looking smuggler taking a pre-emptive action.

    thefederalist ^ | Nov. 27, 2015 | Jay Caruso
    Since “The Walking Dead” premiered in 2010, non-fans have often asked fans about the appeal of the show: “Who wants to watch people constantly on the run from zombies?” They mistakenly equated the show with feature films about zombies. Zombie movies almost always have the same underlying theme: survival. From “Night Of The Living Dead” to “28 Days Later” to “World War Z,” there is only one question viewers pose to themselves: “Will the characters survive?” There is never enough time to go beyond the theme of survival and really become invested in the characters. In “The Walking Dead,”...

    In an interview published November 25, actress Angela Bassett suggested some Chicago leaders are having trouble with Spike Lee’s film Chi-Raq because they are embarrassed by the gun violence in their city. “Chi-Raq” is a nickname given to Chicago because the violence in parts of the city is reminiscent of a war-zone like Iraq. According to The Wrap, Bassett said the “bloodshed” in Chicago’s black communities is “completely and utterly wasteful, shameful, hurtful to the core.” She said that Lee is trying to use his movie “to just bring some awareness….It’s a good picture, it’s very positive.” Bassett said she...

Who else but Hillary Clinton should win the award for "Turkey Of The Year". Maybe no one on "The Five" wanted to be honest in fear of their lives if they all agreed it was Hillary?

    There’s no easy way to define a financially “successful” movie. A lot depends on how much it cost to make, and even then, it’s not as basic as targeting a specific profit margin. Critical acclaim can make up for some lost revenue, as can awards, and then there’s licensing, and digital downloads, and retail, and DVDs, and sequels, and who knows what else. This is an inexact science that resists simple conclusions.

The show depicts an alternate reality in which Nazi Germany and Japan have divided control over the United States after winning World War Two.

    The last time we saw Alan Colmes on Fox was over the weekend. And even when going back and forth with the host and another commentator, he claimed that the GOP was using the Paris Crisis as red meat against Obama and maybe for the 2016 race. So technically,He is still blaming Bush for what happened in Paris along with the previous ISIS attacks. Is it safe to assume that Alan Colmes is either a complete jerk, and/or, a paid DNC commentator?

HBO shared the new season's first promotional image on Twitter this morning, and it features the bloody visage of a character that currently seems to be hovering somewhere between alive and dead: Jon Snow, former Stark bastard and Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. When we last saw Snow, he was being lured into a trap by disillusioned members of his brigade and stabbed to death in a display of brutal mutiny. Of course, there's been a ton of speculation about his true...

Its main competition was the second weekend of "The Peanuts Movie" and a lackluster crop of new releases such as the Chilean mining drama "The 33" and the faith-based football film "My All American." "Spectre" added $35.4 million to bring its domestic total to $130.7 million. The weekend represents a 49% drop from its opening. Sony is distributing the Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer and Eon...

    As it's almost time for "The Five" to air, and Juan is seated at the table, anyone want to guess what he will say about the Paris Attacks?

    Military veteran Nura stumped host Pat Sajak and the rest of the America on Tuesday's run of "Wheel of Fortune" when she made some unheard of letter guesses during the lightning round of the popular game show. Playing alongside fellow veterans Steve and Troy, Nura shocked the audience when she first guessed "Z," "X," and then let a couple turns pass her by when it appeared she could not formulate a guess. -snip After her second guess of "X," the puzzle title of "What Are You Doing?" seemed fitting as she continued to confound those watching. The round ended before...
