Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has style to spare. The new film features a quirky and colorful Gotham, a memorable cast of characters, and some pretty impressive hand-to-hand combat. All of it is tied together by Margot Robbie, who commits to this version of Harley Quinn with a zaniness and intensity that is irresistible. Even in moments when the movie doesn’t quite work, you can still feel the love and care that was put into bringing these characters to life.

I had the chance to chat with Melissa Tamminga from Seattle Screen Scene about the movie. We filmed ourselves talking about how Birds of Prey is a metaphor for getting out of a toxic relationship, sharing our favorite action scenes, and what we think of this new vision of Gotham. Check out our detailed video review after the jump. If you’re looking for more content on Birds of Prey, be sure to check out our interview with Margot Robbie and read Hoai-Tran Bui’s review as well.

We love The Mandalorian. And watching the new Disney+ Star Wars live-action tv series has made us wish we could get some of this story in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Unfortunately, the events in Batuu in Disneyland and Disney World’s Hollywood Studios parks is set between the events of The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, decades after the events of this new series. This means that it can’t feature the characters in this world in any meaningful way, but watching the show we had some ideas of how Disney could bring pieces of The Mandalorian to Galaxy’s Edge. Hit the jump to watch the videos.

Galaxy's Edge lightsaber show

Last week I traveled to Walt Disney World in Florida to experience the grand opening of Rise of the Resistance, the new ride in Hollywood Studios’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. For the opening dedication, Disney closed Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost for a grand party, which included life-size X-Wing drones, a lightsaber battle stunt show, fireworks and much more. It’s all part of an unfolding narrative Star Wars story that took place at locations around the land throughout the night, giving us a peek at what Galaxy’s Edge should be like every single night.

rise of the resistance

When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened, I was totally blown away by the highly immersive land designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. While the land transported me into the Star Wars galaxy like never before at the grand opening, it was really only half-finished.

Batuu’s signature E-ticket attraction, Rise of the Resistance, was not ready for opening day. The ride was said to be such a leap in theme park attraction technology that it needed more time to complete, leading to a later opening date. And now that time has arrived and Rise of the Resistance is finally open at the Hollywood Studios park in Walt Disney World. I have experienced it and it’s incredible. Could it be the best ride ever? Come along with us on this adventure! We have video.
