IESB is “reporting” that a new Star Wars trilogy is in the works:

“The ideal plan, according to our spy at Skywalker Ranch, is to be able to release a new Star Wars film within 24 months after the release of the last re-re-release (is that right?) of Return of the Jedi 3D. Too early for story details but one thing that our source is certain about, they will not be prequels but instead sequels. It’s not for certain if they will be the long awaited Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but could instead be Episodes 10, 11 and 12 or possibly even further out in the Star Wars timeline. And by giving space in the timeline, possibly even as far as 100 years or 1,000 years in the Star Wars universe future, Lucas avoids having to make these stories “fit in” with what the previous stories have told.” (more…)

Better known as “Rambo 1” these days, First Blood by itself is actually a classic piece of American cinema. But wait it was just a big action flick with a lot of killing and no story right? Wrong! People who say that either didn’t understand the movie or have had their memories of it erased by the sequels. Something people don’t even remember is that only 1 person actually gets killed in the ENTIRE movie, and it’s more or less an accident even in that case. This film is actually a look at how the public treated Vietnam Veterans shortly after the war. Sylvester Stallone even describes it as a modern-day Frankenstein in that we (the American public) made him that way and we refused to accept him. Col. Trautman could also be looked at like the scientist. “God didn’t make Rambo, I made him!”¬†Let’s take¬†another look and see exactly why it’s not the brainless action flick the parodies and the sequels would have us believe.
