Yes, George Lucas is doing it again…and again…and again. As in: Disney and Lucas Films announced that Star Wars: Episode VII will hit theaters in the summer of 2015 and that every summer after that will offer a new “Star Wars” film. Sure, when “Star Wars came out, it was a different animal. But now, [...]

This won’t be another anti-gun opinion piece or religious right-ish diatribe excoriating Hollywood for unleashing violent movies that leads a twisted mind to act upon his impulses and go hunt for humans. After all, if there wasn’t a mass audience for violent, bang-bang-bang movies, Hollywood would then incessantly churn out films like “Benji: Happy Dog Days [...]
