New Han Solo Film in Need of New Directors

Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller have left their jobs as directors of the new Han Solo film. Disney has been kept us chock full of new Star Wars films. The idea was to make an anthology series to go along with the main saga. The next is a spin-off showing the origin of Han Solo. We’ve had photos and other news that seemed to indicate the production was moving along smoothly. Recently that all changed as it was announced halfway during the making of the film, they lost their directors. This isn’t terribly unusual as directors and studios part ways all the time. However, usually it happens earlier in pre-production before cameras start rolling. The fact this is happening essentially at the midpoint of production is very surprising.

How’s Universal’s Dark Universe Going?

Universal is off to a less than desirable start with their new Dark Universe. This was originally going to be an extra section in my main review for “The Mummy” much like how I did with my TBT review of “Howard the Duck.” However, there seemed to be enough stuff to talk about the Dark Universe so I decided to do a separate article dedicated to it. Plus I’m waiting a bit for those who plan on seeing it to view it. So SPOILERS ahead. The other nice thing about doing it this way is that it gives me more of a chance to see the fate of this film. Let’s just say that my review of calling it “meh…” is basically the closest it has to a glowing review… yeah.

Top 5 Best Step Families in Film

Families are a funny thing. They can drive us so crazy, but at the same time we never stop loving them. It’s the old saying that blood is thicker than water. But not always.

Compared to a lot of other people (and Disney films) I had a great relationship with my step parents. For this Mother’s Day I thought it would be nice to honor the best step families on film. Let’s get started, but before we do there probably will be some SPOILERS in these entries.

Why Han Solo Should Have Been a Jedi

We all love Han Solo. His personality and swagger are what many strive for in life. But while we love his antihero persona and sometimes harsh nature, his natural “luck” sometimes exceeds that of common characters in the “Star Wars” universe. While he may not officially be a Jedi or in tune with the force, he definitely shows signs that say otherwise. Join us as we explore the many reason why Han Solo could and should have been a Jedi.

Top 4 Refutes To”Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Criticisms

I personally LOVED “Force Awakens” and I think other people did too. Or at least most people did. Now before I proceed don’t misunderstand me, I am NOT saying that if you disliked the movie your opinion is wrong. I’m also not trying to box everyone who disliked it into angry internet trolls. People will like what they will. You are all entitled to your opinion. That being said I’m entitled to completely disagree with it and with this article try to fully articulate why I think those who complain about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” are on a great first step into a larger world. Oh and SPOILER WARNING!

On the DVD Shelf with Eric: ‘Wizard of Oz’

As a DVD collector who has been at this for some time I thought it would be nice to help others who want to get into the hobby or just want some help.

As it happens I got a hold of two different versions of “The Wizard of Oz” on DVD and the differences are quite interesting. Hopefully after reading this, you’ll know which one you want to own. So let’s get started.

Lesser Known Comic Book Characters That Could Have A Big Movie Presence

Not every comic book character has decades of exposure to make them instantly recognizable on the silver screen. Blade, Spawn, and Steel were given the big screen treatment, to varying degrees of success. When “Iron Man” was released in 2008, a lot of non-comic book readers were scratching their heads. “Who’s that?” and “I’m not familiar with that character” were heard by die-hard fans everywhere. “Just go see it” they replied. And they did, making Iron Man a huge success, spawning two sequels and jump starting what is now known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Even Deadpool, originally a fringe character from the X-Men’s universe, has been featured in a wildly popular film.
