There is a great disturbance in the Force.
Are you bored of the usual vampires and witches and ghosts of the spooky season? Tired of the Scream mask people don when trying to make a movie reference in their Halloween costume? Us too. And that’s why we have lovingly compiled a how-to costume guide for your perusal. Dress up as any of these and your awesomeness points will, literally, hit the roof, so approach with caution…
Ever since Star Wars fans staged a boycott against George Lucas’ latest milk-the-hell-outta-previous-success scheme (namely, his heavily adapted Blu Ray editions), we’ve been at breaking point with the bearded man. So, like your very own Ghost Of Film-Mistakes Past, I’ll be taking him backwards through time in the hopes that looking at his mistakes anew will make him a better person. Here are the Top 10 WTF Moments of George Lucas’ Career
Darth Lucas has altered the originals once again. And the rebel forces are gathering…
With Jake Gyllenhaal shoved in a holding cell all on his lonesome for a fair part of Source Code, sci-fi movies continue to love a loner. Let’s look at the those who believe that, unless they’re safely in another galaxy, other people can be just a little bit clingy.
A new occasional blog detailing things which we’ve noticed. Obviously. Today, we’ve noticed a very suspicious bit of shiny plagiarism going on – who’d have thought the Brotherhood of Mutants would be thieving from the Dark Lords of the Sith? Tut.
Everyone loves a villain – more fun to play, watch and steal quotes from than any floppy-haired namby-pamby good guy, and usually prettier to boot.

The most complete Darth Vader costume ever to reach auction is to be auctioned for an expected price of nearly a quarter of a million pounds. Gosh.
With the massive success of Wicked – the musical that tells The Wizard Of Oz from the Wicked Witch’s point of view, and the announcement that Disney plan to release a film about Malificent – the witch from Sleeping Beauty, it seems everyone wants to take a fresh look at an old tale. Screw the good guys, it’s all about the other side of the coin.
When it comes to inappropriate but tear-inducing laughs, Family Guy is about as reliable as they come, and even more so the DVD specials. Particularly if you combine the hilarity of the show with a cultural icon we’re all too familiar with: Star Wars. This release follows on from Seth McFarlane’s first Star Wars tribute episode, Family Guy: Blue Harvest, and the jokes are just as reliable, the accuracies to the original film just as nerdishly faithful. Whether you’re a devoted George Lucas fan or just looking for an hour’s easy laughs on a Sunday afternoon, you could do a lot worse than the typically sick wit of the Griffins.
