Amazon Studios shifts focus with big budget movie plans tipped

Amazon Studios is making some big changes, according to sources who say it will be sacrificing some "cheaper" indie content in order to pursue big-budget movies. Assuming this is true, it represents a big shift of focus for the company, which thus far has concentrated on indie work and "high-brow" content aimed at getting it awards and attention from big talent. Now that it has those things, sources say, Amazon's studio division will be making some original blockbuster movies.

In The Last Jedi, subtext reigns supreme

In The Last Jedi, subtext reigns supreme

The Last Jedi has been out for a little more than a week at this point, and boy have Star Wars fans been divided. Some love it, some hate it, some are confused by it. As a Star Wars movie, it certainly isn’t something we’re used to, for a number of reasons. A lot of that revolves around subtext, which this movie is dripping in. That isn’t something we Star Wars fans are used to - both the original and the prequel trilogy were pretty straightforward about what was happening, spelling most things out for us as we watched. That The Last Jedi would make such extensive use of subtext is a bit of a curveball, and it can leave some people thinking that plot holes and rash decisions exist where they really don’t.

The Last Jedi’s adorable Porgs are more than just a cynical merch play

The Last Jedi’s adorable Porgs are more than just a cynical merch play

While there's a fair amount of debate going on about Star Wars: The Last Jedi as a whole, one of the most divisive components of the movie are the presence of Porgs. Like Ewoks before them, Porgs represent the cute side of Star Wars, a side that's proven to be controversial among some of the series' most die-hard fans. While it's tempting to think that Porgs were added to the movie just because Disney saw a new merchandising opportunity, it turns out that their development is a little more complex.

Radio Flyer Star Wars Landspeeder Review

Radio Flyer Star Wars Landspeeder Review

I had the opportunity to review the Radio Flyer Landspeeder (from Star Wars) this late Fall, and I must say: It's pretty neat. It's not the sort of thing you'd buy if you're looking to roll out on the road - it's not big enough for that. It's not the sort of thing you buy if your kid is reckless - it is a vehicle, after all. This machine is, instead, the worlds most adorable Star Wars gift on wheels.
