Score For Solo: A Star Wars Story Disqualified From Oscars

Variety reports in an exclusive article on their website that the score for Solo: A Star Wars Story composed by John Powell with some new themes by John Williams has been disqualified from the upcoming Academy Awards.
The reason? The score was entered too late. Deadline was November 15th and apparently Lucasfilm/Disney missed it. You wonder how that can happen. I don’t think Solo’s score would have had any realistic chances at winning the award, but it’s still quite embarrassing to miss the deadline.

The Walmart Exclusive Kessel Mine Escape Playset Is Torturous

Sigh. After an inexplicable delay, the Walmart exclusive Kessel Mine Escape playset is now available to those that want it at Walmart.com. To date, it hasn’t arrived at any brick and mortar stores yet. It’s much more compact than the Vandor-1 Heist playset. (Vandor-1 Heist is much more enjoyable as a playset item, FYI.) Hasbro approached the Kessel Mine Escape playset all wrong. Torturing us with “painted on” droids and no-name Wookiees, it looks like the only option we have to get these fantastic characters is two-dimensionally as painted-on characters. And we get another unwanted Han Solo figure as our pack-in here. Of particular note, droid DD-BD is shown on the products’ packaging but is nowhere to be found on the actual playset. Is that a future figure coming down the pike, or did the artwork on this set change before release? Anyhow, we hope that Hasbro gets all of the characters featured on this playset released some day. They’re all beautiful characters that deserve to populate the Star Wars [Solo] line. Our review is coming soon, but you can check out a very rough gallery right now by visiting our Research Droids Review on it now. You can order this set at Walmart.com right now if you wish too.

JTA reported on so-called “Deep Fake” videos before. Basically you train a special piece of software with lots and lots and really lots of photos and then this special software can automatically replace someone in a photo or video. Sounds like magic, but it’s actually a deep learning AI algorithm that makes all of that possible. Maybe you remember the enhanced Leia in Rogue One clip, where the “deep fake” Leia looked even somewhat better than what ILM did. Well, now you can check out how Solo could have been if ILM had decided to put CGI Harrison Ford into the movie. It’s not always perfect, but some scenes look eerily real. And remember, this is something one person did at home with his PC with no budget at all. ILM could certainly do an even better job, given the time, money and inclination. So, what do you think? Should this guy do all of Solo now and find some voice actor to redub all the lines?

If you haven’t seen up close production images of Hasbro’s The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Val (Vandor-1) figure, I highly suggest checking her out as soon as you can. (Our review is about a week away, but we have the high-resolution Photo Gallery available right now.) It’s my opinion that Hasbro has stepped up their already impressive “photorealistic” technology, and it appears as if Val (Vandor-1) is the first recipient of this seemingly updated new process. I can’t get over how much this figure favors Thandie Newton. (Hey Thandie – you have another figure to add to your beautiful dress.) On a personal note, Val was my favorite character from Solo: A Star Wars Story. I am a sucker for any man or woman that lays down his or her life for another, and between her sacrifice, her strong character, her sexy demeanor, and her overall “kick-butt” action in the film, she epitomizes what a strong female character is and how they should be seen in Star Wars. Thandie Newton knocked it out of the park portraying this character. Disney should continue to approach female characters in this manner for the new Star Wars Entertainment era (and immediately cease heading in the direction of that “other” one). Anyhow, please check this figure out. You’re going to be blown away. Be sure to leave your comments on the review page. Comments in this article are closed. Thanks.
