The Reason Rise of Skywalker’s Chewie Medal Moment Is So Weird

Let’s be honest: no matter how you feel about the film as a whole, a lot of The Rise of Skywalker is weird. Some of that weirdness comes from its gleeful embrace of Star Wars’ silliest indulgences, some of it is from the fact that it is, at all times, Quite A Lot. But one of its weirdest moments does a huge disservice to one of the saga’s stalwarts. Read More >>

Doctor Who Charts Itself an Exciting New Future – By Going Back to the Very Beginning

Modern Doctor Who has been fascinated with one central question its past self rarely cared to engage with: Doctor who? It imagined more than the clever twist of its title and sought to place its hero on the grand pedestal of a mystery solved. But this week it finally asked the question for real, and added a follow up that’s far more important: Why should it matter? Read More >>

The First Monster Hunter Movie Posters Are Here, and Giant Sword Giant Sword Giant Sword Giant Sword

Look: this movie is probably gonna be a hot mess. It’s Paul W.S. Anderson taking on a Capcom video game again, and we’ve just gotta hope it’s a Resident Evil: Retribution hot mess rather than a Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hot mess.

On The Clone Wars, Everyone’s a Little Tired Of Being a Tool of War

The Clone Wars has been with us for six – now seven – seasons, and while it has remained consistently delightful, the Clone Wars themselves have dragged out to a point that our heroes are really starting to feel the costs of all this fighting.
