In a movie culture of ever bigger, louder, and emptier booms, and a celebrity culture of relentless panty flashes and nip slips, Mr. Lee always reminds us of elegance, of discipline, of presence. With Christopher Lee in a production, there was never any need for lame camera-shaking and ADD cutting -- he held you.
We have hyper engines that go through hyperspace compared to warp drives that travel through normal space at FTL speeds. Technical data books indicate that the speeds and range of hyper drives are greater, however.
"Art is not just a part of my life. It IS my life. It gives me breath. We are eternally entwined." This is the mantra of Scottish artist Ciara McAvoy, a painter renowned for her stunning oil work
Disney and Star Wars are FORCE-d together for the fabulous mash-up known as Disney's Star Wars Weekends. Opening weekend took place on Friday, May 15th at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and the festivities run each weekend until June 14th.
There's a terrific comic-book sensibility to this film, which is high praise for the work of a seventy-year-old man. In contrast to that other George, I feel like this movie -- with its blood, sweat and gears -- is the proper spiritual sequel to the original Star Wars.
First let's assume you mean could it fly here on Earth in our atmosphere. Anything can fly in space in zero gravity with the right propulsion on it, even a brick.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is the number one film in the world, and the MovieFilm gang is here to offer our thoughts on the long-awaited, much-anticipated superhero sequel from Marvel Studios.
Star Wars is part of the classic film canon, and the more I re-watch them, the happier I am that my boys are obsessive devotees. If you haven't already, consider letting your kids watch the series, at least the original three.

We're celebrating May 4th (aka "May the Force Be With You Day") by rounding up the most creative wedding ideas inspired by George Lucas' 1977 sci-fi game-changer.
Some stories are better left untold. I didn't need to know that the Force is the cause and effect of midichlorians. I didn't need to know that Anakin Skywalker was actually a pretty whiny and annoying kid and adolescent.
It depends on what you're considering to be "Star Wars." If you're just considering the canon movies, you get a very different picture of the Empire's competence than you do in the Expanded Universe.
The Fandom Awakens! For this week's show, we're joined by a special guest, award-winning documentary filmmaker Ray Nowosielski, and we go through the big batch of trailers that dropped in the last few days.
Before Star Wars, I was just a geeky, nerdy kid who enjoyed science fiction and fantasy but didn't really connect with too many others. After Star Wars, things changed. While I was still geeky and nerdy, I found friends who didn't notice, let alone care. We got each other and that was enough.
A clarion call to uncounted legions of dreamers, young and old alike, waiting in what often seemed merely vain hope for thirty-two long years.
