RedLetterMedia has finally posted their epic feature-length takedown of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You might remember that independent filmmaker Mike Stoklasa’s 70-minute video review of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace went viral in 2009. The review was posted in seven parts on YouTube, and presented from the point of view of his character “Harry S. Plinkett.” Mr. Plinkett followed up those reviews with take-downs of the other George Lucas Star Wars films and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
And now he has returned with a one hour and forty-five-minute video essay on the current and future of the Star Wars franchise, and oh yeah, a review of JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Hit the jump to watch RedLetterMedia’s Force Awakens review.

This past weekend brought a bunch of new merchandise to shelves in honor of the forthcoming release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, one new item that debuted recently doesn’t have any ties to the first spin-off film in the Star Wars franchise, but it’s easily one of the best gizmos we’ve seen recently.
This R2-D2 coffee press seems all too perfect of an item to feature on a Monday morning. Plenty of us need some quick caffeine to start the day, and if you’re a Star Wars fan, the best part of waking up could be letting the adorable astromech droid R2-D2 brew your coffee for you. Check out the R2-D2 coffee press after the jump. Read More »
Back in early 1980s, Warwick Davis began his acting career as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. When the revival of the Star Wars saga happened in 1999, the dwarf actor made a cameo at the podracing arena in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Then he returned to a galaxy far, far away again with a role as the alien Wollivan in Maz Kanata’s cantina when the series made a comeback with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now it appears he’s a good luck charm of sorts since he also has a role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (seen above).
Now we have confirmation that fans will see Warwick Davis in Star Wars Episode VIII. Read More »

This past Friday brought the first merchandise from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to store shelves. While the excitement doesn’t seem to be as high for Rogue Friday as it was for Force Friday last year, that’s to be expected since The Force Awakens had more excitement surrounding it as the first live-action Star Wars movie in 10 years.
Still, there were plenty of cool items to pick up at stores this weekend, including retailer exclusives that were only just recently revealed. Another one was shown on Rogue Friday with Walmart debuting an exclusive 6-inch Black Series figure for the Scarif Stormtrooper or Shoretrooper as they’ve also been called. To show off the exclusive action figure, they’ve released a quick, action-packed cinematic advertisement showing a squad of these Imperial troops in action. Read More »
