Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now available on Blu-ray. So you can bring each and every exciting minute of one of the best Star Wars films home.
Of course, there are so many more things to look forward to than just the movie. There are a ton of extras to dive into. A lot of these extras will explain the creative choices we see in the film, as well as some of the narrative ones. Which may help explain why it is one of the most polarizing Star Wars films to date. So check out what bonus features you will be getting plus a mini review of it all below.
By now, if you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens yet, then you’re likely to this weekend. And when you do, you’ll hear the familiar sounds of John Williams‘ score, which incorporates snippets of the original Star Wars trilogy, along with new compositions.
While the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is currently available for purchase on CD and MP3 (and soon on vinyl, too), you can hear the entire score right now for free.

As you all know, Black Metal Friday is our weekly celebration of the worship of “The Dark Side” in heavy metal music. Well, in honor of today’s long-awaited premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, we here at Geeks of Doom present to you a video from the folks over at Galactic Empire. In the clip, we get to check out a metal rendition of John Williams’ iconic Star Wars theme performed not for the dark side but rather by the dark side.
That’s right kiddies, Darth Vader, a shadow guard, and an imperial guard on lead guitars; a run of the mill storm trooper on bass (hey, are they implying that bass players are non-descript?); everyone’s favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett on drums; and one very unlucky guitar tech. So take the advice of a very wise master: “Watch it below, you must… Enjoy it, you will.”
When I was 16, I got my first job, as an usher at the local movie theater. My plan was simple: exploit my position and the modest $5.15 minimum wage salary to both pad my budding DVD collection (DVDs were new in 1998), and see as many new movies as possible for free. Mission accomplished. More than half my life later I have a very respectable collection, and STILL get in for free occasionally at that theater. I can honestly estimate that I’ve seen hundreds of movies in the theater. All those experiences were great… well, no… there was Wild Wild West.
But they all pale in comparison to 7:00 pm Sunday night, when I got to sit and watch Jaws on the big screen with my family, and hundreds of adoring fans. The screening was part of the recently announced 40th anniversary screenings.
Jaws, which remains one of the (pun intended) high water benchmarks in the history of Hollywood, and is one of the scariest, sharply written, directed, acted, and not to mention edited films ever created, celebrates its 40th birthday today.
There are so many genres which owe tips of the hat to this film, what it has done to the pop cultural landscape, the standard it has set for the contemporary modern thriller, the blueprint for aquatic water thrillers, not to mention solidifying the career of Steven Spielberg, who made this film just he was creeping into his 30th year. Coupled with the powerhouse acting triad of Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw, and the memorable and now Hollywood folklore two-note heart-stopping theme by John Williams, there isn’t really much left to say about Jaws that hasn’t already been written, scrutinized, dissected, and most importantly, enjoyed by countless generations. But yet, despite all of this, Jaws still has plenty to say in all four corners of what it is and what it remains.
