Star Wars Celebration—a nerd convention devoted solely to the nearly religious experience of Star Wars fandom—went down over the weekend, and included the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (the key art has dropped “Episode VIII”), on Good Friday nonetheless.

What’s more Tom Cruise than Tom Cruise on a motorcycle? Highway to the danger zone. Tom Cruise on a motorcycle was introduced to us over 20 years ago in Top Gun. At this point, yes, it’s fair to call that an iconic image. And he won’t let us forget it because every movie he tries to get himself onto a motorcycle to show us how good he looks on a motorcycle. Full Story

Have you seen Get Out yet? By now, you have no excuse. Sarah called it “OUTSTANDING” in all caps. Do you know how rare it is for Sarah to use all caps when she’s not eviscerating something?

You know those dramatic reenactments that feature in murder mystery shows where it’s like watching aliens pretend to be people because while everything looks normal enough, the interactions are just ever so slightly stiff and unnatural, like everyone is super aware of the camera on them? And do you remember the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, full of cutesy down-home anecdotes that seem to exist solely to make you cry? And you know the “For Dummies” books, which strip down every topic under the sun so that you can become a faux-expert in anything? Well, if you take all these ingredients—the not-quite-human drama of reenactments, the mawkish commodification of comfort, and the oversimplification of complex thought—and put them together in a movie, you get the new Chris Evans Full Story
