A Bunch of STAR WARS EPISODE VIII Predictions For ‘Ya

As a writer, one of my favourite things to do is create my own plots for upcoming movies – basically, write fan-fic. It’s fun to work with characters and environments that you’re already in love with, and it poses a creative challenge to predict plot developments for a story which you don’t fully know inside-and-out.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Beats AVATAR in ‘Murika – WOOO!

Excuse the rather juvenile headline, but this news is quite exciting. On the whole, box office news is fairly boring; once in a while, however, a movie comes along which engages you completely in its box office domination or failure – e.g. Fantastic Four.

George Lucas Gives STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS a Half-Assed Compliment

It must be tough being George Lucas. On one hand, he basically created the modern studio system, summer blockbusters, CGI, and revolutionized storytelling.
