But this brilliant fan film digs a little deeper into the life of one Stormtrooper to examine the trauma of fighting in a galactic civil war.Read more...

The look of terror in my eyes is half the idea of Oreo cookies filled with Swedish Fish “flavor creme,” half the outrageous pressure put on me to eat them from the moment they became a real thing. I have done your bidding. Please release my family. The good ones, at least.Read more...

Jessica and Trish’s relationship in Jessica Jones was without a doubt one of the highlights of its first season. We saw it grow from estrangement to affection, culminating in Jessica telling Trish she loved her as she snapped Kilgrave’s neck. They’re the Daria and Jane of superheroes, and it looks like we’re going to see a hell of a lot more of them.Read more...

When Saturnina Alers was being honest with herself she’d begrudgingly admit she didn’t particularly like Jacqui Green, but in the middle of a war she never got much time for self reflection. Under the service of Aria Joie, most of her days were in meetings, oiling the joints of old mechs, making sure people were exactly where they should be, when they needed to be there. The Divine Rigour, Aria said (Ms. Joie, Saturnina corrected herself), is more thorough than they could ever hope to be. So Saturnina took it as a personal insult whenever she caught guards asleep, when anyone slacked in their duties. It was an insult to Ms. Joie, their leader, their only hope. In her most private moments, she would think, how could anyone disrespect someone as beautiful, honest and kind as Aria?Read more...
