Boba Fett Returns! The Mandalorian, Explained

If The Mandalorian Season 2 were a feature film, this week’s episode, “The Tragedy”, would set us firmly in the mid-point — that moment where all is lost, doom befalls our heroes, and the audience wonders how they’re going to get out of this particular pickle. It’s one of the shorter episodes in the season at 33 minutes, but a lot goes down in that jam-packed half hour: Boba Fett! Baby Yoda The Child Grogu gets Jedi-napped! Of course, all these developments are packed tightly into an action-heavy chapter courtesy of director Robert Rodriguez, filled with nail-biting developments, shocking twists, and more than a few Easter eggs (as per usual). So let’s strap on our jetpacks and dive in. Again, it goes without saying that there are some major, major spoilers ahead. You must b...

Hollywood Will Never Stop Loving the Music Biopic

This past week saw the release of Stardust, a biopic about David Bowie’s first trip to the United States. If you’ve seen any piece of media related to the film, you probably know that the movie was received poorly — to say the least. This isn’t surprising, though. When the film’s first trailer dropped months ago, the film was immediately scorched online for being a very blatant and very poorly executed attempt to piggyback off the recent success of other musical biopics such as 2018’s Bohemian Rhapsody and last year’s Rocketman. Whereas those two films at least had the wherewithal to secure the rights to their stars’ likeness and discography, Stardust opted out of either of those things. Even so, the film chugged along on the strength of its premise alone, but mostly because it’s a musical...

Who’s Ahsoka Tano? What’s Baby Yoda’s Real Name? The Mandalorian, Explained

The gift of the Thanksgiving gods smiles upon us this day, as we awaken from our turkey-and-stuffing-induced comas, slide over to Disney+, and find another episode of The Mandalorian awaiting us, “The Jedi”. Finally, after half a season of standalone adventures, we finally make some progress in Din Djarin’s (Pedro Pascal) mission to bring Baby Yoda back to his people, the Jedi. Along the way, we meet yet another old friend from the animated shows, an even older friend from ’80s genre classics, and learn perhaps a bit too much about Mando’s adorable young charge. Let’s go over everything we learned, and a few things non-animated show watchers might not know about this week’s special guest. Of course, it goes without saying that there are some major, major spoilers ahead. You must be ca...

Meg Thee Stallion Went Hard On ‘Good News,’ But It’s Only A Glimpse Into What She’s Capable Of

Source: Apple Music / Apple Music Let’s go back to Good News Friday (Nov. 20) and it’s time to listen to the album we’ve all been patiently waiting for. My coworkers, men, can’t stop talking about Meg Thee Stallion‘s official debut. Upon pressing play, you’ll understand immediately that although Good News can be a polarizing project, it definitively positions Black women as a community of power in every bar uttered. Hot Girl Meg has given us the indisputable commandments of a bad b*tch, putting f*ck boys all over the nation on notice. As a Black woman, myself, I feel captivated by the Houston Hottie for countless reasons. Women who look like us are always stereotyped, disrespected, and pigeonholed — and historically, Black women of Meg’s height and size have been mocked even more so. But M...

Kim Kardashian Praises Kanye West’s Dirty Mack Lyrics In “Lost In The World”

Source: Sheri Determan/WENN.com / WENN Kanye West and his fifth studio album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was released 10 years ago on Nov. 22. Kim Kardashian shared details on Yeezy’s verse for one of the album’s closing tracks in “Lost In The World,” which was inspired by a poem he wrote her while she was in another relationship. MBDTF remains one of West’s standout studio releases among his legion of fans, and the rollout leading up to the album in the form of the “G.O.O.D. Fridays” tracks helped spark a rabid interest in the project. Via Instagram, Mrs. Kardashian West shared how the aforementioned poem made its way to the track. From Kim Kardashian’s Instagram: For those that don’t know the story behind “Lost In The World”…Kan...

Hulu’s Tekashi 6ix9ine Struggle Documentary Is Low Quality Just Like His Bars

Source: PYMCA / Getty To many a Hip-Hop head, Tekashi 6ix9ine has always been considered a “struggle rapper” regardless of how many times he topped the Billboard charts or how much money he earned with his mediocre records. His lyrical content has always been linked to the struggle and now he has a documentary to match. According to Yahoo, Hulu quietly released their Tekashi 6ix9ine documentary, ’69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez is the kind of mess you’d expect from a rapper who’s seemingly been all over the place in his young and short career. Directed by Vikram Gandhi, the documentary delves deep into the somewhat public life of the 24-year-old Brooklyn rapper and though it seems to be informative, it also lacks the kind of inside information that would make ...

Stand-Up Comedy Is Bringing a Much-Needed Edge to SNL

One of the stranger modern-day quirks of Saturday Night Live is how the show still draws some of its talent from the stand-up scene. This wasn’t necessarily the case for most of the aughts, but in the last few years, the late-night program has reverted to its ’90s strategy of throwing stand-up comedians in with all of the veteran improvisers and writers-turned-performers. Despite this tradition and its variety-show bona fides, Saturday Night Live isn’t especially built for stand-up. Instead, performers who want to flex those muscles traditionally have to head to Weekend Update, where Pete Davidson and Leslie Jones have found a stage in recent years. This season, though, a whopping four of the six hosts so far have been stand-up comedians, and their performances are subtly toying with the s...

LeVar Burton Rips Keith Olbermann’s Weird Kunta Kinte Trump Tweet

Source: The Washington Post / Getty As far as political commentators go, Keith Olbermann may no longer be a go-to pundit for some but that hasn’t kept him from becoming a vocal critic of President Donald Trump. In one of his Twitter missives, the former ESPN and MSNBC host made a weird tweet referencing LeVar Burton‘s iconic Kunta Kinte character from the Roots miniseries, and the actor made sure to school Olbermann on his mishap. In a now-deleted tweet that got some burn before its disappearance, Olbermann wrote the following in connection to a Fox News segment focused on President Trump. “Yes, @realDonaldTrump has always been, will always be, and on the day of his bid for re-election, still is: a whiny little Kunta Kinte,” Olbermann wrote on Election Day. The tweet got a measurable amoun...

The Presidential Election Remains Undecided While Trump Prematurely Gloats

Source: Array / WENN The presidential election will most likely continue to dominate the news cycle for much of the week if not longer as the race is still far too close to call. Despite the slim margins, President Donald Trump has prematurely declared victory over Joe Biden and it remains to be seen how the ending plays out. Election Day (Nov. 3) was, as observed by many a commentator, pundit, and anchor, a nail-biter with Biden owning 238 electoral college votes to Trumps’s 213 according to The Associated Press. And like the presidential election, the U.S. Senate race is also undecided with the Democratic Party gaining one seat thus far but are still sitting at 45-47 with the Republican Party holding the slim majority. President Trump, taking to his favored vehicle of Twitter after being...
