Star Wars Rewatch: Revenge Of The Sith


The consensus seems to be that Revenge of the Sith is, in fact, the best of the prequels.  True, that can be damning with faint praise, but…well, let’s see what the Geeks have to say about this one.

Star Wars Rewatch: The Phantom Menace


The Force Awakens opens on the 18th.  Star Wars fans can barely contain themselves.  They got the original band back together (mostly), and the epic saga continues with a new generation.

To better prepare ourselves, we here at Gabbing Geek are doing a Star Wars rewatch, with a movie covered a day until the 18th rolls around, skipping weekends.

Natalie Portman Is Tired Of Your Nonsense, Goes Cowgirl

natalieYes, that’s Natalie Portman in her finest cowgirl attire pointing a gun at someone who probably deserves it.  Comic Book Resources posted the image and we don’t have a problem with it at all.  But when will this wave of making movies based on Aerosmith songs end?!  Armageddon was fine (I know, the song was only technically called Armageddon even though everyone else called it I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing–but that’s clearly about Armageddon when the asteroid doesn’t miss one single thing, it destroys EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH!) but the rest?

I mean, we could have done without the movies based on Walk This Way (Wild), Love in an Elevator (Fatal Attraction), Come Together (9 1/2 Weeks), and Toys in the Attic (Flowers in the Attic).

Wait, what?  This isn’t based on the Aerosmith song? It’s about a homesteading wife whose husband is filled with bullets so she seeks out a sharp-shooter to help her finish off the band of bad guys before they return to finish the job?  And the bad guy is Ewan McGregor?


Oh hell yes.
