We witnessed the World Premier performance of the ...   Source

In Defense of the Sith

Hi, Anexandros here, It has concerned me for quite some time how the Jedi are given the benefit of the doubt in matters of philosophy and how the larger portion of the conversation is from the perspective of the Jedi. This is one-sided media control and the wrong way to look at the fundamentals of ...   Source

Undead Cinema: Spaceballs

As part of the 31 Days and Knights of Star Wars, I have decided to resurrect a good comedy that roasts the best and worst of the Star Wars Universe While yes, there are throwbacks to other science-fiction, Spaceballs is thickly a StarWars spoof. When the film initially came out, I was just too young ...   Source

Star Wars Muppets

When I was young in 1986 (as opposed to young today), Muppet Magazine came out with this cartoon. I thought this was a one-time issue. It was also the issue where I learned about the Fraggles. This cartoon is interesting because it discusses summer movie battles. It also reveals just what movies were showing during ...   Source

If Luke and Leia Swapped Places… A New Hope

As a form of free-thought and exercise, every so often, i sit down to consider the implications of gender-swapped characters in my Strong Female Character blogs. To me, this is the most entertaining aspect of my blogs, sitting down, considering what, if any, actions would be different in “Show/book/movie X” if the character in question ...   Source

Why Lightsabers Are the Coolest Weapon Ever

Swords have been an irrelevant weapon for around 200 years. Yet swords continue to flash into pop culture all over the place. The Princess Bride and Lord of the Rings have some of the best of Bob Anderson’s work before he passed away. But sci-fi games like Final Fantasy and Metal Gear have characters with ...   Source

Blue Milk? All about an amazing, Star-wars Themed Webcomic

Star Wars versus Star Trek

Star Wars fans are a different breed of people then Star Trek fans. I notice this as an outsider looking in at the two genres. Growing up I was not allowed to watch mainstream TV or go to the movies. I did not see Star wars until I graduated Boot Camp in 1989, 12 ...   Source

Star Wars with the Kiddos

The Genesis of My Geekery

I am a geek. It is my religion. I am a believer. Comic books are my scripture. Heroes are my demi-gods. Cinemas are my temples. Well, kind of. I don’t really believe that I can bend the elements with martial arts or that the Greek Gods are parents to some of us or… anything like ...   Source

ZapCon 2015

Hey Sportsfans, I had a birthday recently. Among the activities that were established for this weekend ZapCon, a pinball convention in the town next-over in Mesa Arizona. I hadn’t heard of ZapCon until one of the other editors left a single short text on my phone “there is a pinball thing in Mesa.” My wife ...   Source
