Best Animated Feature has been given out 17 times (every year since 2002), and Pixar movies have won it 9 times. That’s impressive - a majority, even - but not quite complete dominance. They’ve had seven movies in that period that didn’t win - five of which weren’t even nominated (Cars 2, Cars 3, Monsters University, …
Xanadu is in the wrong section of the list.
They actually do in fact have hoverchairs in Star Wars. Cliegg Lars has one in Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones. He’s specifically shown using it to get into and out of the Lars homestead.
I’m torn between being deeply irked they dare refer to it as “Star Trek 4” (for essentially erasing the first ten Trek movies) and being glad, as it emphasizes the “reboot” status over the softness of the reboot (i.e., the fact the new movies are still supposedly connected to the “prime” universe as an offshoot, with…
I get what you’re saying, but It could just be intended as an assurance they’re not going in the other direction, DC-ing it up into something Dark and Gritty, with little or no humor.
While I wish I could be a little more excited about J. J. Abrams making this, the casting news (and the character roster it reveals) is honestly about the best I could hope for (short of Denis Lawson also returning for one last turn as Wedge Antilles).
I’m not sure why. The original movie is a kid-friendly movie already, even with That Ending and all; all the show needs to do is retain the style and tone of the movie and it’ll work fine for kids (though granted, recreating that is tough enough). Making it “kid friendly” doesn’t have to mean making it more…
The Force Awakens is pretty much all setup, though, whereas The Last Jedi actually pays off on that setup (and does so in a logical way given what was established in TFA, however much it rankled so many fans).
Respectfully, I don’t see why, considering Solo is set a good decade before A New Hope.
Sounds cool! I’m looking forward to it.
I must say, it seems bizarre to speak of this show having six seasons when it only began two years ago.
I know there are plenty of people already commenting along these lines, but I have to join in, because the premise of the article is just so damn weird to me. Why would there not be trading cards for this show? It’s a popular show with a devoted cult following, and it falls into several different categories of show…
FWIW, I think it’s sorely underrated. Like The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Ninjago Movie isn’t as moving or inspiring as The LEGO Movie, but it is hilarious. And perhaps befitting the theme, the action is actually the best of any of the three (with honest-to-goodness fight choreography by Jackie Chan, believe it or…
They were hinted at in the original, as the road signs over the freeway through Bricksburg in The LEGO Movie mentioned Heartlake City, the setting of LEGO Friends. That said, I wouldn’t expect any Disney properties in this movie, unfortunately.
I don’t know, but his character Benny is still there.
Oh, Artoo and Threepio certainly have independent opinions, and are very clearly sentient, sapient beings to me. I’d actually love a Droids movie centered around them, myself.
That’s a little unfair to the people who make those shows, though - like saying, “go on and do your little thing, but you can’t have any story that actually matters to the big picture, and you have to always retain status quo from the movies.” Why should the shows suffer?
No, yours is - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade came out in May, 1989. However, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles began running in 1992.
Even the entire Indiana Jones franchise save for Raiders of the Lost Ark?
Aside from that just being a nasty way to think about someone who is a living, breathing person whose creations aren’t the sum total of his being, I have to point out that some of Lucas’s best, most creative, most ambitious work on Indiana Jones took place in the 1990s.
