Sorting the best Star Wars movies from the... not so best(?) isn't as easy as it sounds. Sure, we can probably all agree that the prequels are at the bottom of the list, but in what order? Do you hate The Phantom Menace more or less than Attack of the Clones? It's hard to tell... and then there's the other side of the argument. What's the best Star Wars movie ever? Probably one of the originals, right? But again, which one? And we now have two new high-quality episodic films and a couple of excellent spin-offs to include when ranking the best Star Wars movies as well. (Please stop making great Force films Disney - this list is long enough as it is!) As you can imagine, all this means there were a fair few arguments in the GR office when we came to rank every Star Wars film from worst to best, and it's doubtful you'll agree with the list completely. But if you're new to the Force franchise and looking to start with only the best Star Wars movies, or you want to recap/marathon the … [Read more...] about The best Star Wars movies, ranked from A New Hope to Solo

We finally have a name for EA’s next Star Wars game - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. And while just the mention of 'Jedi' is enough to get me excited, there are many, many more things to suggest that this could be a dream game set in a galaxy far, far away.If your first thought at this point is to bring up Star Wars Battlefront 2, don’t. Much of the outcry came from Reddit before the game was even out, with most people too busy shouting about how they thought the loot crates worked to actually play the game. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sounds like it'll on focus single-player and if you decide to write it off now because of the Battlefront 2 backlash, you could be missing out on something big. Firstly, let’s look at the studio: Respawn Entertainment. Formed by Vince Zampella and Jason West, most of the founding team came from the Infinity Ward, the folks behind Call of Duty 4 who went on to make Titanfall 1 and 2. However, it’s COD 4 that’s most … [Read more...] about Hello there: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order could be God of War with lightsabers
[Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Solo: A Star Wars Story] Of all the Star Wars characters to pop up in Solo: A Star Wars Story, few expected a character from the maligned prequel trilogy to wind up back in the universe. Surely, Han Solo could run in with Boba Fett before the events of Empire Strikes Back? Or cross paths with Jabba the Hutt before his inserted A New Hope - Special Edition scene? What was wolfman Arleil Schous up to in those days before drowning himself at the Mos Eisley cantina? Instead, a movie about hyperfuel and heists ends with a surprise reveal: the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate is run by the ex-Sith apprentice, Darth Maul. The cameo, brought to life by Rebels voice actor Sam Witwer, works as a surprise to every tier of Star Wars viewer, from those entering the fandom with Solo who can just say “oh look a guy with a lightsaber!” to those who will never forget the “Dual of Fates” in The Phantom Menace to the hardcore fans who … [Read more...] about Answering the biggest questions about Solo’s surprise Star Wars cameo
Remember when there were only three Star Wars movies? No? Well, do you at least remember when there were three good Star Wars movies and then those other ones? Yeah? Ok, good. Believe it or not, there's now nine movies (and counting) from a galaxy far, far away, which means that's far too many to watch in one sitting. If you don't fancy giving up a full weekend to a Star Wars marathon ahead of the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, why not just watch the best Star Wars movies? How do you know which are the best, you ask? Why... with this handy ranked list of course!We've ranked every film from the Force-inspired franchise from worst to best, so you only ever have to watch the best Star Wars movies. (Or, you know, just watch them all and then argue about which you think is best afterwards...) If you're wondering how we came up with the order of this list, just like our best Marvel movies round-up, there was much discussion in the GR office over which were the best Star Wars movies. It … [Read more...] about The best Star Wars movies, ranked from A New Hope to The Last Jedi
Star Wars: The Last Jedi may not have been everyone’s cup of blue space milk, but, wait, there’s plenty more where that came from. 14 more deleted scenes, to be precise. That’s right, some of the clips Rian Johnson and the editing team left on the cutting room floor are going to see the light of day with the home release (13th March in the US and 9th April in the UK), and we now know what they’re called. The deleted scene titles come from StarWarsNewsNet, but also via Australian retailer JB Hi-Fi and Amazon France. Of course, unless you’re fluent in French (what the hell is a Finn et Phasma, anyway?) you’re gonna want to read the English version. Join me as I (probably wrongly) speculate about what might go down in the deleted scenes. Alternate opening Pretty simple this one. A different version to the one we saw in cinemas. In fact, you can see the tiniest glimpse of it on this Rian Johnson-shared video of John Williams doing his … [Read more...] about Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s 14 deleted scenes tease… wait, MORE casino planet and a new opening?
