Force Awakens Toys Leak Dialogue

Yesterday was Force Friday, the launch of the new The Force Awakens toy line. This continues a long history of Midnight Madness events preceding new Star Wars films. We can only imagine that with Disney’s plans to launch a new film every year, we’ll be getting Force Fridays every year from now until the end of time. But until then, we still have a new movie to look forward to. And if you’re like me, your gobbling up all the toys and all info about the toys trying to find out as much as you can about the movies to … Read more…

Pissing on Metal Bikinis

And so what’s the first thing I’m going to write about? Star Wars of course. Okay okay, I know you’re tired of hearing about how amazing Episode 7 is going to be when we haven’t see the actual movie. I know the subject of this article is old hat now, but I don’t care. I have something to say about it that nobody else seems to be saying. So let’s talk about something super dumb that happened in the world of Star Wars, because this kind of stupidity is frankly quite absurd. It begins as it always does. A single … Read more…

Star Wars: The Trailer Awakens 2

This was a huge week for trailers, what with the reveal of the first trailers for Batman v. Superman, The Fantastic Four, and even a leaked teaser for the first Star Wars standalone film, Rogue One. But of course, the biggest reveal was the new Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer. And what a reveal it was. The first teaser trailer was perfect for inciting the type of excitement that a first teaser was supposed to incite. Before our eyes was a flurry of action with a freaked out string section providing the rhythm of our heartbeats. There … Read more…

Star Wars: The Names Awakened

Remember all those new characters from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer whose identities we could only speculate on? Well now we at least have their names, curtesy of J.J. Abrams delivering some awesome retro-looking Topps cards to Entertainment Weekly over the weekend. First of all, that’s one of the coolest ways to leak out some new Star Wars details. Second of all, well now we have names. So now what? These names don’t really tell us much on the surface, really. Letting these names slip isn’t some disastrous spoiler or anything. But I’m a Star Wars fan, as … Read more…

Star Wars: A Teaser Awakens Part II

“The Millenium Falcon Looks Awesome Need I say more?” Heck yeah, I do. I mean, come on, this is the trailer to the movie that succeeds Return of the friggin Jedi. In my opinion, this is the most significant thing to happen to Star Wars since 1983, when Return of the Jedi came out. There’s no way I’m going to stop talking about it. Heck, my wife’s already tired of it. I might as well make you tired of it too. My last article about this matter was written mere hours after I saw the trailer. I’ve now had 72 … Read more…

Star Wars: A Teaser Awakens

Hey! I’m back! I wrote a bunch of words. 50,223 of them to be exact. Yes some of them repeated, and they repeated a lot more often than I really wanted, but that’s okay I’m a two-time NaNoWriMo winner. While I was in my self-imposed blogging isolation, a lot of things happened, but it probably would have been a terrible time for me to be blogging anyway. The Windows 10 Preview nearly self-destructed with buggy preview updates. And then got fixed just in time for me to come back. A new book about the most infamous guy to ever blow … Read more…
