The Six Best Star Wars Hairstyles

(This is a post I forgot I wrote years ago so…I wanted to reshare it with you. Enjoy!)

I love Star Wars for so many reasons. I love the stories, I love the action, I love the environment, and I absolutely love the characters. And of course, each character has their own special style and part of that style is their hair. So, on that note, here are my six favorite Star Wars hairstyles.

6. Qui-Gon Jin

Qui-Gon is cool for so many different reasons and one of those reasons is his impeccable hairstyle. First of all, it’s totally a look that I would imagine a Jedi Master having. It’s simple yet elegant in a way, it has this kind of Samurai warrior vibe which is totally sensible considering that George Lucas’s inspiration for the Jedi was from Samurai, and it perfectly defines Qui-Gon. He’s also the only character in Star Wars, so far, with a hairstyle like this. Now I think Rey is going to go a little Qui-Gon on everyone with her new look but that’s a whole other topic.

However, at the moment Qui-Gon Jin has the coolest hairstyle as a Jedi so far.

A Movie Ranking: Will Smith: Updated

Will Smith is one of the few actors I can say I’ve never seen a bad movie involving him. No, not all of the films are the best movies I’ve ever seen but he chooses his films very well. I’ve seen so many of his movies, some even very recently, and because of his newest film, Gemini Man, which literally comes out today, it makes perfect sense to celebrate the renowned actor for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!

14. Men in Black II

The first Men in Black, amazing. The second one, not so much. Men in Black II is one of those movies that you watch and forget. Continue reading “A Movie Ranking: Will Smith: Updated”

Throwback Friday: A Revelation About Rey

A while ago, I wrote a post detailing my theory on who Rey could be, which was linked to the Star Wars novel, Star Wars: Bloodline. Here’s a look back at that theory and how close I was to discovering the secret. Enjoy!

So I have just recently finished reading Star Wars: Bloodline which was really good by the way. This book is set, I think, six years before The Force Awakens and is focused solely on Leia and what she was doing at that time. Not only was it fun reading about that time period and all of its political struggles and so forth but it also gave me one of the largest hints about Rey that I’ve gotten in the last twenty months and I’m so excited to share it with you.

Watching ‘The Matrix’ For the First Time

Growing up in the United States as an avid movie lover The Matrix has been as constant a pop culture phenomenon as the likes of Star Trek. I vaguely knew what the movie was about, I’d seen bits and pieces of some of the films in no particular order but had no idea what was going on. So, last night, I decided to watch The Matrix for the first time. Dang, it was better than I expected!

I’ve seen a lot of science-fiction films but this was definitely a trippier one than most movies I’ve seen of this genre. It’s like the next level story of The Terminator‘s concept–A.I. takes over humanity–but adds horror to the recipe. I was positively blown away by the simple but easily riveting story that concocted a movie that would permeate pop culture forever.

By the end, when Keanu Reeves’ Neo finally tapped into his full potential against The Matrix, I was positively pumped and ultimately pleased with the overall experience. No, it isn’t the best science-fiction movie I’ve ever seen but heck yeah it was enjoyable and I’m glad I finally watched it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.

The Proof That Poe Was Regarded As a Villain in ‘The Last Jedi’

Over three weeks ago I wrote a post about who I felt was the true villain in The Last Jedi and at the end of the article I felt that, due to the movie’s events, Poe Dameron was the true antagonist of the movie and for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons why however is that Poe got hundreds of Resistance fighters killed due to his reckless actions. He wanted to be a hero several times and every time he thought he was doing something great he only made things much, much worse. Of course Kylo Ren is the main villain of the trilogy but for the majority of The Last Jedi he was treated as a partial-protagonist rather than the villain that he was in The Force Awakens. And now I have legitimate proof that Poe was regarded as one of the antagonists of the film. Look at this poster. Continue reading “The Proof That Poe Was Regarded As a Villain in ‘The Last Jedi’”

‘Dune’ Gets an Official Image featuring Timothee Chalamet and an Official Logo

Last year it was announced that Denis Villeneuve would be rebooting the epic 80s’ science-fiction film, Dune, modernizing it with a brand new cast that is totally STACKED. Here’s the link to that post: The Dune Reboot Is Stacked to the Rafters With Talent.

With so many movie premieres and productions being delayed due to COVID-19 it almost seems like the entertainment world has come to a complete halt. So imagine my surprise and excitement yesterday when the first image and logo for Dune arrived to grace the internet and bring joy to all of us who are missing the movie theater experience. I was ecstatic and now I’m eager to share with you the photo and logo.

This first official image, featuring Timothee Chalamet as lead protagonist Paul Atriedes, is simple but already looks like something that will be awesome to see in IMAX. Denis Villeneuve is a visually provocative director, providing an epic feast for your eyes with his utterly gorgeous films. I don’t know anything about Dune but I’m ready for this ride.

And just to make things better, here’s the logo. I’m in love with this design. Now we must simply await the first teaser trailer. Ooh, I’m excited!

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
