Scores of Carrie Fisher’s fans flocked to the Hollywood Walk of Fame to pay tribute to the Star Wars actress after she died. But there was no star in her name to be found. So they created one.
The fans laid candles, roses, cinnamon rolls and lightsaber toys on a previously blank star, one of several on the famed sidewalks, with the words “Carrie Fisher, may the force be with you always” and “Hope” scrawled on it. A red velvet rope was later placed around the makeshift memorial.
Some fans arrived … read more
It’s no secret Carrie Fisher thought Princess Leia’s iconic hairstyle — twisted double buns — was completely fucking stupid. Never one to shy away from her love-hate relationship with Star Wars, and the man who created it, the late actress once said the space ‘do made her feel like an “asshole.” Though she eventually learned to love Leia and her enduring pop culture legacy, she never got over that “awful” hair (and that terribly degrading slave bikini, but that’s another story). Still, Leia’s … read more
The world lost an icon on Tuesday when news broke that actress Carrie Fisher died at the age of 60. She had been hospitalized last week after suffering a heart attack. Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, confirmed her mother’s death, saying in part, “She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly.”
That statement couldn’t be more true. Fisher was known for her role as Princess Leia Organa in the “Star Wars” franchise, and will always be remembered for her charisma, humor … read more

Andre Leon Talley is still considered one of America’s most important style arbiters. Even though he’s no longer Anna Wintour’s right-hand man, he’s still very involved in fashion and everything around fashion. So it’s no surprise that Maureen Dowd was tasked with interviewing Talley about the incoming Trump administration, and the ongoing debate about Melania Trump and what kind of access she will and she should have to designers. The “what will Melania wear?” story seems to have … read more

Dan Perri, the famous title designer who created the original 1977 crawl, isn’t too happy about the movie’s decision to omit the signature Star Wars intro in Rogue One. Considering the Star Wars opening crawl has been an iconic part of the film for over 40 years, it seems strange that they didn’t include it in the eighth movie from the franchise. However, the Rogue One creators decided against it because the film is a separate Star Wars story.
One thing is for sure, the movie’s opening … read more

That’s … read more

The Death Star blew up before I was born. Its pink-and-yellow cloud left a residue on the culture. We’ve inherited Luke Skywalker’s PTSD. Generations have witnessed that moment through rewinds and re-releases, and once mine grew old enough, we recreated it for ourselves with The Force Awakens’ supersize revamp and now Rogue One’s through-the-looking-glass reimagining of how it was done in the first place. Four decades after the damned thing first exploded, to see the killer ship’s blueprint onscreen … read more

The first “Star Wars” prequels were not the movies you were looking for. Of course, one blemish stands out from the others — mostly because it just didn’t shut up. Jar Jar Binks has been panned throughout the galaxy since his first appearance in “Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.” J.J. Abrams even joked about possibly having Jar Jar’s bones show up in the new movies as an Easter egg. At least that would bring our intergalactic nightmare to an end, right? Well, sorry, everyone. … read more
