I wish the night sky shined and sparkled like this over every city in real life

Light pollution. It really screws up the view. It would be so great if the stars in the sky could still be seen over big metropolitan areas. But it doesn’t work like that.

Video: The brutal amputations in Star Wars done by lightsabers

Lightsabers are dangerous as hell. If I had access to one in this here real life, I’d be legless, armless, headless, and torsoless in less than 5 minutes. Not even kidding.

Hollywood recycles plots and story lines all the time. The same actors and actresses and directors are put in movies over and over. And the same sets are used to film completely different movies. It’s an incestuous industry. Sometimes when you’re watching a movie and you can’t quite put your finger down on why a scene… »Tuesday 9:24am11/24/15 9:24am
