Like Luke Skywalker before her, Rey was abandoned by her parents, left to fend for herself on Jakku. The snarky Poe Dameron most certainly has shades of Han Solo, but Finn is perhaps the most "original" of all these characters, a former Stormtrooper who turns to the light side of the Force. … [Read more...] about Watch Every Moment Star Wars: The Force Awakens Ripped Off A New Hope

RELATED: The Real Reason A New Hope Needed Reshoots According to Mark Hamill This move is just the latest bit of corporate synergy employed by Disney. The final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted during halftime of Monday Night Football, which airs on the Disney-owned ESPN network.

Gilmore Girls (Netflix)The Gilmore Girls a couple of months ago, and, man, what a lucky break for us. Stars Hollow, Connecticut — an indie-rock Mayberry where Grant Lee Phillips was the town troubadour and the dream of the Nineties was still blissfully alive well into the Bush years — is the perfect place to spend an hour or three in any era. But it’s especially soothing after a long day of enforced social distancing and global economic collapse. In our new collective coronavirus reality, the show offers a new, more viscerally immediate kind of utopian fantasy. When supercool single mom Lorelai Gilmore and her wonderful daughter, Rory, want to go out to grab coffee at Luke’s Diner, they just go grab coffee at Luke’s Diner! Crazy, right? They leave the house, they sit down next to other people, they flirt with Luke, and they crisply toss around wryly whimsical, knowingly ironic pop-culture-saturated banter like Bringing up Baby by way of Belle & … [Read more...] about Monsters, Wizards, and Trashy Reality TV: Rolling Stone’s Staff Picks for Quarantine Viewing
