"An ode to the little people in 'Star Wars.' No, not the Jawas."

Rob Gonsalves says... "A friend of mine collects "Star Wars" action figures, including custom-made figures of the more obscure characters, and likes to have the figure “cards” signed by the actors who played the obscure characters. I was with him at a local convention when he got an autograph from a guy who played, I think, some Imperial commander (I’m sure he’ll correct me if I’m wrong)." (more)
"A different look at a different sort of character."

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2016: Festivals mostly program their horror movie sidebars to start or end at midnight, figuring that the long day will have the audience in prime position to have their weary heads messed with. Sometimes, I wonder if a film like this one might be better suited to an earlier hour, when those who come out are ready to talk about what was going on rather than just side on their way to the bed or the bar. Filmmaker Nicolas Pesce has put together an interesting look at what makes certain characters in the genre tick, even if it's just an average thriller." (more)

alejandroariera says... "Rarely do I leave a movie theater or press screening feeling that I have to see that movie right…bloody…now! I usually like to spend a couple of days thinking about it, reading what’s been written about it, before I write my own review. It takes me awhile to revisit it: weeks, months, even years. “Captain America: Civil War,” the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is the exception to that rule. It left me so giddy, so exhilarated, that I wanted the projectionist at the IMAX Theatre were I saw it during a word-of-mouth screening to show it again. It is as good as, even better than, “Captain America: Winter Soldier.” And it’s definitely an improvement over the disappointingly over-stuffed “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”" (more)
"Heroes Take The Fall"

Peter Sobczynski says... "There used to be a feature in MAD Magazine entitled “Scenes We’d Like To See” that used to stand famous storytelling tropes on their heads by stretching them even further or by applying the kind of real-world logic that they generally tried to avoid if at all possible. Remember the story about the princess who kissed the frog and it was magically transformed into a handsome prince? In their version, their inevitable wedding would be interrupted by the arrival of the prince’s pissed-off frog wife. “Captain America: Civil War”—which is the third entry in the “Captain America” franchise and could probably be considered “The Avengers 2.5” as well—plays like a feature film version of that conceit by taking one of the aspects of the superhero genre that tend to get sloughed off along the way, namely the fates of all the innocent people that happen to be on the street or in office buildings when when the good guys and bad guys wind up leveling entire city blocks while beating each other up, and contemplating what might happen if those heroes were forced to deal with the collateral damage resulting from those heroics. At this point, some of you may be groaning a bit because the recent dud “Batman Vs. Superman” sort of tried to do a variation on this very same idea utilizing a decidedly dark and dour approach and could not have made a bigger botch of it if it had tried. Happily, “Civil War” is a far more entertaining and interesting variation on that them that takes the conceit seriously enough while at the same time leavening the material with enough humor to keep it from becoming a depressing bore. The end results should more than satisfy both the hardcore fans of the ever-expanding Marvel cinematic universe and neophytes alike, though at a wildly overstuffed 2 1/2 hours, it is unlikely that many will come away from it immediately hungering for more."
