You know that part at the end of The Force Awakens, after all the bad stuff with Han happens, when Leia and Rey share a slightly awkward, ultimately sweet hug? A lot of people took that moment as a slight towards Chewbacca, whom Leia ultimately shared a much deeper connection with than this girl who she had literally just met. Why wouldn't she go hug the walking carpet, who was standing right there and probably feeling pretty down; did she hate him? The short answer: no. JJ Abrams just messed up the blocking of the scene. In an interview with /Film, he explains: 

That was probably one of the mistakes I made in that. My thinking at the time was that Chewbacca, despite the pain he was feeling, was focused on trying to save Finn and getting him taken care of. So I tried to have Chewbacca go off with him and focus on Rey, and then have Rey find Leia and Leia find Rey. The idea being that both of them being strong with the Force and never having met, would know about each other — that Leia would have been told about her beyond what we saw onscreen and Rey of course would have learned about Leia. And that reunion would be a meeting and a reunion all in one, and a sort of commiseration of their mutual loss.

Had Chewbacca not been where he was, you probably wouldn’t have thought of it. But because he was right there, passed by Leia, it felt almost like a slight, which was definitely not the intention.


So there you have it. Lord of scifi, JJ Abrams, makes mistakes too (and not just lens flares).

Tony Dyson, known best as the creator of R2-D2, recently passed away in his home in Malta. Now his friends have started a crowdfunding campaign to cover the costs of his funeral services. The GoFundMe page explains:

Sadly, as wonderfully savvy he was with creating, money wasn't one of his strong suits. As the people who love him dearly, we are trying to make his arrangements. His wish was to be donated to science, because he wanted those to look into his brilliant brain. Sadly, due to the circumstances surrounding his death (he died alone in his apartment of natural causes), he wasn't found quickly enough to have this happen.  We believe his next wish was to be cremated. We have gotten an invoice for this to happen, and the cost in US Dollars is close to $8000. Needless to say, this is more money than most of his friends have on hand.Malta does not do cremation, so his body has to be shipped to his home country, England.  This is the major expense and why it is so costly. 


So far, the page has raised $3,600 of it's $7,000 goal. 

Rage Gear Studios combined the cutesy characters of Rainbow Brite with some of the X-Men characters in a colorful 80's mashup that no one really asked for (not that we're complaining). Who knew these X-Men characters would go so well with all the colors of the rainbow?
