New SH Figuarts Star Wars Figures Teased!

SH Figuarts will for the first time show The Last Jedi Luke Skywalker (Crait) and a Revenge of the Sith Yoda at the Tamashii Comic-Con this weekend! So it seems SHF will beat Hasbro to the punch once more when it comes to making a TLJ version of Luke! But I am especially excited for Yoda, since the Hasbro version may have a good sculpt, but it’s too tall and the facial paint apps leave much to be desired! We will post photos once they become available!

Can You Trust Movie Critics?

Ever since The Last Jedi was released Rotten Tomatoes Audience Scores, Cinemascores and whatever professional critics had to say was hotly debated. There has been a distinct feeling among quite a few moviegoers that whatever the Tomatometer or Metascore says is far removed from what the fans think about a movie. Cinemascore is something that is usually cited as a highly scientific and accurate gauge. But for what? Audience satisfaction? In this article I will try to examine if the aggregate scores by professional movie reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes and Metascore are actually far removed from what the fans feel.

We have a sneak peek of the Entertainment Earth exclusive Finn (First Order Disguise)/Captain Phasma Two-Packs set from the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line. As you may or may not know, this set was temporarily canceled until Entertainment Earth salvaged it and took it on as their exclusive. The set is more excellent than expected. The Finn (First Order Disguise) turned out nicely. He still comes with inadequate articulation of which is required to battle Captain Phasma. Captain Phasma is all-new as well but has been significantly retooled. And most importantly, she comes with the spear she used to attempt to defeat Finn. The figure uses Force Link technology. Interestingly, you can use the Force Link 2.0 wristband to make the figures talk. Between Captain Phasma’s rich English accent and Finn’s fast-talking, it’s challenging to make out their five phrases each. Anyway, check out our full gallery ion this set. We thank Entertainment Earth for providing us with this sample for review. The review is coming soon! Order yours today HERE.

Have others noticed the standard The Last Jedi poster now prominently features Rey at the top instead of a Sith-ified Luke Skywalker? (Perhaps this was intentional to make the audience think something more ominous about Luke before the film’s release.) This change is now included on the poster that comes packaged with some Blu-ray releases. Special thanks to volkerc for the alert. This completely blew by us. We wonder if the same is true for you. The revised poster is not featured in the StarWars.com gallery either.

Disney Star Wars Movie Statistics

The MPAA report for 2017 was released yesterday. And like each year the report lists some informative statistics about the age of moviegoers, their ethnicity and overall gender share. Disney Star Wars is, among other things, about inclusivity, gender equality and Kathleen Kennedy’s own goal is to bring more girls and women on board the franchise. The MPAA reports since 2015 (when The Force Awakens was released) shed some light on how Lucasfilm’s strategy to win new fan groups has worked. Click through to learn more!

Were Rey's Parents Supposed To Be Special After All?

When The Last Jedi was released one of the questions left unanswered by The Force Awakens was who exactly Rey’s parents were. And Rian Johnson’s movie gave an answer: they were filthy junk traders who sold Rey off for drinking money and they’re buried in a pauper’s grave on Jakku.

Ever since then fans have speculated if that was what JJ Abrams really had in mind when he set up the mystery, or if he had any solution to the mystery at all. Now, actor Simon Pegg was interviewed for a podcast and he shed some light on what JJ Abrams’ plan was. Click through to find out more.

The Last Jedi, despite being a commercial success, is considered by many as the most divisive Star Wars movie ever. You might think Disney and Lucasfilm and all the people involved with the movie would try their best to win back the hearts of the fans who were disappointed with the latest installment of the franchise, especially in light of the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story movie which needs to be a success. And now London based free daily newspaper Evening Standard published an interview with Rian Johnson. And he had a few things to say. Click through to find out what he said.
