star wars the rise of skywalker kylo ren plot holes

Even three months after its release, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker refuses to leave the national conversation. Perhaps that’s because so much supplementary material keeps coming out after the fact to fill out the plot gaps in the film’s ever-so-complex narrative. The latest from the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelization is all about Kylo Ren and his arc form Big Bad to big softie, and how exactly it happened.

Everything Coming to Quibi in April 2020

We’re living in an uncertain world, but there’s at least one certainty that we can’t avoid: Quibi is coming. Will the new mobile-only streaming platform and its mountain of original content change the way we think about entertainment forever, land with a dud, or something in between? We’ll find out very soon, because the service is set to launch in just over a week. (You can get a free 90-day trial, but only if you sign up before launch.) And now there’s a list of every single thing they’ll be releasing in the month of April, including “movies in chapters” like Most Dangerous Game and 50 States of Fright, unscripted shows like Chrissy’s Court and Murder House Flip, and much more.

Update 2: Disney has announced that their theme parks “will remain closed until further notice.” You can read the full statement below:

While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVD-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remains The Walt Disney Company’s top priority.

As a result of this unprecedented pandemic and in line with direction provided by health experts and government officials, Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort will remain closed until further notice.

The Walt Disney Company has been paying its cast members since the closure of the parks, and in light of this ongoing and increasingly complex crisis, we have made the decision to extend paying hourly parks and resorts cast members through April 18.

Update: Hours after Disneyland announced its closures due to the coronavirus, Disney has announced (via WDWMagic) that Disneyland Paris and Florida’s Walt Disney World theme park are closing their doors from March 15 until April 1, 2020.

In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of our theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Paris Resort, beginning at the close of business on Sunday, March 15, through the end of the month.

Disney Cruise Line will suspend all new departures beginning Saturday, March 14, through the end of the month.

The Walt Disney Company will pay its cast members during that closure period. The hotels at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris will remain open until further notice. The retail and dining complexes, Disney Springs at Walt Disney World and Disney Village at Disneyland Paris, will remain open.

Our original article follows.

For just the fourth time in history, Disneyland will fully suspend its operations. The closures, which also apply to the neighboring Disney California Adventure park, will begin the morning of March 14 and last for the rest of the month, due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. But it seems as if Knott’s Berry Farm is staying open for business…at least for now. Read More »

tiger king movie

Netflix’s Tiger King is generating a ton of buzz lately, with viewers absolutely gobsmacked by the strange, wild, disturbing docuseries. The series takes us into the surprisingly lucrative (and altogether questionable) world of big cat collectors, focusing primarily on the eccentric Joe Exotic, a private zoo owner who was convicted of ordering a contract killing on an animal rights activist. But Joe is just our gateway into a whole world of unconventional, and in some cases downright loathsome, characters.

There’s already a Tiger King TV show in the works, featuring Kate McKinnon. But let’s go beyond that. Let’s assume that there’s going to be a Tiger King movie as well. Who would star? Who could possibly play this motley crew of weirdos? And who could direct it? I’ve taken the liberty of fan-casting the flick below.

Naturally, this post contains spoilers for the entire series.
