Movie News Today

The Telegraph provides an interview with "X-Men: First Class" (and the upcoming "Hunger Games" films) actress Jennifer Lawrence.

George Lucas recently talked about a potential "Star Wars" TV show that would take place between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope." I'm both thoroughly excited and immensely depressed by this. If only I had faith that it would be good!

Man I Love Films takes a look at Christian Bale's top 5 performances. Check it out!

Rail of Tomorrow gives us an exhaustive review of "Tree of Life" which only adds to my frustration that it won't be available to me for weeks. Great review.

  1. I actually have a pitch for a Star Wars TV series that chronicles the survival efforts of a band of jedi. It would also tell the story of how little clone Boba Fett rises to become the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. Ultimately the central characters are doomed, but it's the journey, right?

  2. I'm on board for the pitch as long as it also includes the telling of how Han and Chewie hooked up and rocked the galaxy with awesomeness. If Chewbacca isn't involved then what has my life been all about? (Half truth.)

  3. There would at least be a cameo or a two-parter. We would be seeing some bounty hunter activity, and I'd also like to see just how Han earned that "hard to live with" death mark.
