Deadpool 2 release date update with Han Solo, Gambit, New Mutants

Deadpool 2 release date update with Han Solo, Gambit, New Mutants

A selection of superhero movies previously set for different dates will now be set in their own individual weekends. This includes Deadpool 2, The New Mutants, and Gambit too. The first film to get a bit of a change is Deadpool 2, which will now be set just one week before the opening of Disney/Lucasfilm's Han Solo film: "Solo: A Star Wars Story." That means the tail end of May 2018 is going to be the best couple of weekends of superhero/sci-fi action movies of the year - if not the entire history of the world.

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.
