“Back to the Future” and “The Goonies” take place on the same day

We’re back with a new one, and this time we’re bringing you a little something about two movies from 1985 that are so loved by my generation. If you were a kid in the 80s, you probably love Back to the Future and The Goonies. But what you probably didn’t know is that they share something in common: they take place on the same day. Both of these films were released in the summer of 1985, and have the same producers, but despite these films being 35 years old, nobody has every pointed this out! As a kid, I watched these movies more times than I can count, but I never noticed this until now.

Why Palpatine’s return was inevitable and predictable, and a horrific theory of how he did it.

When this theory first occurred to me, it sent chills down my spine. That’s right Star Wars fans. I’m about to drop a major theory that, if true, would be mega spoiler that would send ripples throughout the entire saga. These ripples have huge implications for movies and TV that we’ve seen, as well as what’s yet to come. It’s about to get ripply, believe it or not. Beware of spoilers. Proceed with caution, and strap yourself in if you do.

That Last Dangling Thread From the Prequels That Could Tie the Saga Together

Some people have seen the film at early showings, but I’m still in the group that hasn’t seen it, which gives me a little more time to speculate about Rise of Skywalker. As we approach the release of Rise of Skywalker, I have one last thing on my mind. Its a plot point that was kind of left open in the prequels. It is just my humble opinion, but this one little piece could explain everything that people complained about the sequel trilogy, and serve to explain why it exists in the first place. Spoilers and speculation below. Let’s get to it!

Hello, Star Wars fans! We’re still reeling from the excitement of Celebration. The biggest event for me was the Episode IX panel. There has been quite a lot of discussion online about the meaning of the title for the new film.

The Past and Future of Vader’s Mask

It goes without saying that the Sequel Trilogy leaves a huge, mysterious time gap of 30 years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.  What it contains, we barely know, save for a few spotty retellings of Kylo Ren’s fall in The Last JediThe Force Awakens only hints at what came before, and the film contains a number of moments that can be read as foreshadowing or seeds planted for payoffs later. One of the biggest mysteries planted right into The Force Awakens that i don’t think has been taken seriously enough is Darth Vader’s mask.

Do The Nightsisters Offer Sequel Trilogy Clues?

The Clone Wars is George Lucas’s Silmarillion.  While it may be a cartoon, it was also the perfect medium for Lucas to expand a mythological background narrative that the Sequel Trilogy could be built on. One of the more under-appreciated elements of Lucas’s expanded world is the group of force users known as the Nightsisters.   In this article we will take a fresh look at who they are, and what implications the mythology surrounding them has for the Sequel Trilogy.

Rey’s lightsaber, also known as the Skywalker saber, is pretty important for the saga. Come to think of it, is any artifact more central to the Episodic Star Wars films?

How Lucasfilm Has Changed Palpatine and Vader’s Motives, and What It Means for the Sequel Trilogy

Ever since Return of the Jedi, we’ve know about the dynamic between Vader and Palpatine. Palpatine’s objective is to rule the galaxy totally and completely, and at his side is Vader: attack dog and servant—trapped both in a mechanical prison and his role at the Emperor’s enforcer. However, new canon material reveals there is much more to it than that, and this has radical implications on the rest of the saga.

The Latest Theory of Rey’s Parents

Rey’s parents were dismissed as “filthy junk traders” in The Last Jedi, reinforcing the idea that the Force is not connected to family lineage. Not everybody needs to be the offspring of an established character. This point about Jedi potential coming from anywhere is well and good, but from certain points of view it leaves a lot of questions about some events of The Force Awakens.  A new theory has surfaced from Film Threat, which takes a different and exciting approach to Rey’s parentage. Let’s break it down.
