One of the best things about Star Wars: The Last Jedi is that it solves several mysteries raised by The Force Awakens, but it also presents plenty of its own. Here are all the questions we had after we watched The Last Jedi—as well as our educated guesses as to their answers.
A large part of Star Wars’ decades-long appeal is that it’s about families and inheritance, the stuff we get from the people who preceded us. The Last Jedi delivers a poignant and powerful take on what it means to mature when you have to shoulder heavy responsibilities.
A million Russian artillery shells helped scientists discover the Higgs boson. And all over the world, remnants of World War II weapons are built into the most mysterious experiments in physics.
In the mid-1990s, physicists needed tons of a metal strong enough to withstand the massive magnetic fields of the house-sized…
The first looks at Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time have been amazing, like shiny glimpses into a dreamlike realm. But the acclaimed director needed to be convinced to take on the movie based on Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved 1962 novel.
There are a lot of questions coming out of Star Wars: The Last Jedi—like, a lot of them—but one of the biggest stems from a discovery about Rey’s mysterious past. Was it genuine, or a devious con to get Rey to turn to the Dark Side? Technically, it was real... but it could become fake later.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America is a pretty acrobatic fellow, jumping, flipping, and flinging himself around in an incredible fashion. And somehow, he manages to do it all while holding a shield. Wouldn’t that be a problem?
Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars movies is about as recognizable as Darth Vader or a lightsaber. It’s a smuggling ship, hot rod and plot device all rolled into one. After all, it’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. It also shares some similarities with another famous and strange…
Last night, I finally saw The Last Jedi, and now that the dust has cleared all I can think about is Star Wars fashion. No spoilers here, but plenty of ponchos.
Recently, Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the FCC, invoked Star Wars in celebrating his successful bid to repeal extant net neutrality laws. And Mark Hamill, donning his Master Skywalker robes at least in spirit, did not approve.
With more than 5.5 million articles, Wikipedia is an invaluable resource, whether you’re throwing a term paper together at the last minute, or seeing if there’s a good private school in your area with a magical-hat-based admissions department so you can downplay your lousy test scores. We explore some of Wikipedia’s…
The status of Justice League Dark, a potential DCEU movie spotlighting the more supernatural side of the DC universe, is pretty up in the air. Directors have come, directors have left, and though it still appears to be on the Warner Bros. slate, we couldn’t tell you what’s happening with it in clear detail.
Once upon a time, long before holing up in a cave with a bunch of porgs, Luke Skywalker had simple dreams. He just wanted to go into Tosche Station, possibly meet up with a few friends, and pick up some power converters. What were they even for, one wonders?
A wizard is never early, nor is he late. He reprises his most famous role precisely when he means to.
It’s been almost a year since Carrie Fisher died, and I literally still think about her at least once a day. With the release of The Last Jedi, it’s more like once every 20 seconds, because every single newsfeed is clogged with Star Wars items. But this is actually a good one, because it’s about her dog, Gary.
Before The Last Jedi confirmed or denied any of our post-TFA plot speculation (no spoilers here, though!), the internet positively drowned in fan theories, ideas about Snoke, Rey, Phasma, and every little thing in between (were those really the ashes of Kylo Ren’s enemies, or were they just, like, incense or…
X-Men fans might be happy about the news that Disney plans to buy a large portion of 21st Century Fox, but the Democrats on the Senate and House antitrust subcommittees aren’t as thrilled.
It’s hard to make good TV about Silicon Valley and its predecessors. Especially a drama.
