Star Wars: The 5 Worst Things Rey Did (& The 5 Most Heroic)

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the most recent Star Wars film. If you have not yet seen it, know that several big twists from The Rise of Skywalker will be spoiled below.

The latest Star Wars trilogy introduced one of the most powerful Jedi in the galaxy, Rey (or Rey Palpatine). As the new farmgirl from a planet in the middle of nowhere, Rey fulfilled her destiny as a Jedi and continued their legacy. Through powerful, her journey to becoming a Jedi featured some ups and downs.

RELATED: 5 Reasons Why Rey Is the Beacon Of Hope ( & 5 Reasons It Will Always Be Luke)

Like any beginner, she made plenty of mistakes along the way to becoming a hero of the Resistance, the new Luke Skywalker who will lead the oppressed against the tyrannical First Order. With that, here are 5 Worst Things Rey Did (& 5 Most Heroic) in Star Wars.

10 Worst: Gave in to Temptation

When Luke reluctantly agrees to train Rey as a Jedi, he realizes the raw, untamed power within her instantly. Her inability to resist the temptation of the dark side labeled her as a possible Sith, one that could be seduced by the dark side of the force.

Palpatine may have said one must consider all sides to understand the Jedi and sith, Rey was simply following her feelings. However, Luke was right to warn her of the dangers that accompany curiosity with Rey learning the hard way.

9 Heroic: Fought Alongside Kylo

Rey is one of the most sympathetic characters in the new trilogy, offering Kylo a wait out numerous times despite his hesitancy and reluctantly to join. In The Last Jedi, she makes a stand alongside him against Snoke and his guards.

Her selfless actions prove she’s capable of seeing the good in people, just like Luke could with Darth Vader. Even though Kylo declines, Rey continues to at her attempts to bring him back to the light.

8 Worst: Fought with Luke

Luke made some controversial decisions, like cutting himself off from the force, but Rey’s decision to fight him was foolish. Luke is one of (if not the most) powerful Jedi in the galaxy, wise, experienced and trained in the ways of the force.

Rey simply wanted answers she wasn’t getting and chose to confront Luke with her lightsaber rather than words. Admirable, but truly mistaken, Rey.

7 Heroic: Brought Han and Chewie Back

Though their meeting was an accident, Rey (and Finn) successfully brought Han and Chewie back in the game. Her admiration of Han as a father figure and respect for the Falcon may not have been heroic, but a single step towards something bigger.

Rey is genuine in everything that she says and does, and her need for Han and Chewie in the fight against the First Order is warranted.

6 Worst: Destroyed the Locals Home

Rey has a tendency to ignore her surroundings, mindful only of what’s in front of her. During her training with Luke, she manages to tear down some huts and slash away stones pillars that have been erected for hundreds of years. The locals were irrelevant to the story, but that doesn’t mean she can’t respect them.

As silly as this is, it’s imperative to Rey’s training as she focuses on her power and passion rather than the life and force around her.

5 Heroic: Saved BB-8

BB-8 took over the role of R2-D2 as the loveable droid companion in the latest trilogy. When Rey is tempted by a month’s worth of food in exchange for the droid, her compassionate side takes over instead of her own needs. The two were inseparable from the start with Rey refusing to let anyone take the droid away from her.

Had Rey sold the droid in exchange for food, it’s unlikely the Resistance would have gotten to Skywalker. Furthermore, the First Order would have gotten their first, taking him out of the equation as the biggest threat.

4 Worst: Bridged Minds with Kylo

Rey can be impulsive, and her mind-bridge with Kylo is a great example of her lack of caution. Not only is this further temptation to the dark side, but dangerous when considering both Rey and Luke’s safety.

With the two together Kylo can discover the location of Luke, exposing him and ending his seclusion from the galaxy. The information Kylo gave to Rey was important but the danger looming proved worse.

3 Heroic: Saved Ben Solo

Kylo’s redemption arc was completed in the final entry of the Skywalker saga, becoming one with the force like his grandfather. Not only did she stop Palpatine, but she was able to bring back Ben Solo from the corrupted Kylo Ren.

Though the romance between the two never came to fruition (with the exception of a small kiss before Ben’s untimely departure), Rey’s actions were nothing short of heroic in the final fight on Exegol.

2 Worst: Destroyed Luke’s Lightsaber

Though some saw this as a shift away from the Skywalker saga, the act itself was shameless. Kylo and Rey both fought over the possession of Luke’s Lightsaber, breaking it in the process like two children over a toy.

The restoration of the light side of the force may not rely on the survival of a lightsaber, but it was a symbol of hope.

1 Heroic: Buried the Skywalker Saga

Despite the mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, the ending of Rise of Skywalker was beautiful. A perfect goodbye to a nostalgic series, 40 years in the making. With Rey’s training complete and Palpatine destroyed, Rey returns what’s left of the Skywalker Saga to where it all started, Tatooine.

The visit from Luke and Leia as force ghosts was a tearjerker as the Skywalker era finally came to an end, and Rey’s journey just beginning. Honorable, respectful, you name it, this was the goodbye every Star Wars fan wanted, and Rey made sure their legacy would rest well.

Oscars 2020 TV Ratings Were Worst Ever For Awards Ceremony

The 2020 Oscars TV broadcast saw the lowest ratings ever for the ceremony. Another awards season came to a close last night, with Bong Joon-ho’s critically acclaimed Parasite being crowned Best Picture. Bong was definitely the star of the evening (winning three other Oscars), but his fellow nominees included some of the biggest names in Hollywood. The likes of Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, and others were all up for awards. The high-profile nature of the talent seemed to appeal to hardcore cinephiles and casual audiences alike.

In 2019, the Academy reversed an unsettling trend when ratings were higher than the year before. Encouraged by those results, the Oscars went host-less for the second consecutive year, banking on the films to draw in viewers. What sounded like a good idea on-paper unfortunately didn’t have the desired effect, and the 2020 Oscars made the wrong kind of history in regards to ratings.

Related: Oscars 2020 Highlights: The Best & Most Surprising Moments from the Ceremony

Per QuickTake by Bloomberg, the 2020 Oscars saw 23.6 million viewers tune in. That’s the lowest figure since Nielsen started keeping track of the ratings in 1974.

This turn of events is a little surprising, as a number of the year’s Best Picture nominees were sizable box office hits. Joker was far and away the highest-grossing with $1 billion worldwide, but even the likes of Ford v Ferrari ($223.6 million), Little Women ($177.1 million), Once Upon a Time in Hollywood ($374.2 million), and 1917 ($290 million) drew in large crowds. Other contenders such as The Irishman and Marriage Story were streaming on Netflix. A lot of popular films were in the running, which theoretically would lead to stronger viewership. It’s not coincidental last year’s ratings uptick happened when massive hits like Black Panther and A Star is Born were nominated. The Oscars have been guilty of being too esoteric for their own good in the past, but in 2020, the movies themselves were not the issue.

It’ll be interesting to see what the Academy does in response so the same thing doesn’t happen in 2021. They might be inclined to recruit an A-list host (Dwayne Johnson?) to emcee the festivities. Giving the show a public celebrity face could go a long way in bringing in more general viewers, though at the same time it’s worth wondering if that would make a big enough difference. Some people may feel there isn’t a need to watch the 3+-hour ceremony live – especially since the winners are tweeted out immediately after they’re announced and the acceptance speeches are uploaded to YouTube. There are other ways to follow the Oscars without actually watching the show, which is something that’ll be hard to overcome.

The Bachelor: Peter May Be the Worst Lead Ever | Screen Rant

Let’s be crystal clear about this up front: there are worse humans who have been The Bachelor. Peter, for his part, seems like a genuinely nice guy. That may be his biggest problem, as he’s shown himself incapable of making any decisions. It started when Hannah Brown returned and Peter seemed undecided, at least for a moment, on whether to give her a chance or return to the women who had taken time off from their lives just to date him. And then he made the head-scratching choice to allow Alayah Benavidez back in the house, even though it was obvious there could be no positive outcome from choosing to do so. Furthermore, Peter’s conversations with women on one-on-one dates lack substance. He has not spoken out against a important issue when controversy arrived. And now, here we are, at the final six, knowing next to nothing about the women he has left.

Related: Bachelor Fans Are Convinced That Kelley Flanagan Doesn’t Actually Like Peter

When grading Peter’s performance against some of the most lackluster Bachelors in the history of the show, there are several to choose from. There was Jesse Palmer, who is best known for saying the wrong woman’s name during the rose ceremony. Then we have Ben Flajnik, the guy whose mind clearly knew Courtney Robertson was the wrong choice but his hormones stated otherwise. Fellow pilot Jake Pavelka seemed like the perfect choice for The Bachelor, until he ignored all warning signs and proposed to Vienna Girardi. That, um, didn’t end well. There were Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Jason Mesnick, both of whom earned public scorn for breaking up with the women they proposed to on television. And of course, who could forget Juan Pablo Galavis. He was famously dumped by Andi Dorfman after he talked about his time with other women during their fantasy suite date (it’s NOT OK, Juan Pablo). Then he selected Nicki Ferrell, but refused to say he loved her at the After the Final Rose segment. To no surprise, their relationship crumbled.

The aforementioned men failed at their respective jobs of finding true love. But Peter is a new level of bad. He just seems wholly unprepared to take on the task prescribed to him. The second runner-up on Hannah’s season has stumbled, both figuratively and literally, through this entire season. Fans are still watching because The Bachelor has cemented itself as the type of show that is impervious to lackluster talent, sort of like Monday Night Football despite employing a laughably incompetent Booger McFarland in the booth.

If anything, season 24 of The Bachelor has proven that choosing who becomes the lead is not all that important after all. Regardless of how this mess of a season turns out, Peter has proven himself as one of the very worst Bachelors. Cut him some slack, though; the women haven’t done him any favors, with their constant arguments over petty things that don’t help in painting a great picture of women in general. It almost doesn’t matter that nearly nothing has gone well for Peter, because people still talk about, tweet about and write about this series en masse to satisfy an audience hungry for content. Part of that fun is having something to criticize. Pilot Pete has failed his flight test as The Bachelor, but the upside is, the more moments he falls face first into, the more topics we have to discuss.

5 Reasons Faustus Blackwood Is The Worst Headmaster ( & 5 Why It’s Dumbledore)

The fictional worlds of Harry Potter and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina have a lot of differences between them, but obviously the thematic lifeblood that runs through them both is very much the same. In this world of magical children who are learning how to navigate the realms of witchcraft and wizardry, they must rely on adults around to teach them.

RELATED: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: The 5 Best Spells Performed (& 5 Worst)

And so it comes as no surprise that both Harry and Sabrina have their own magical schools, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the Academy of Unseen Arts, respectively. Albus Dumbledore is the headmaster at Hogwarts, and Faustus Blackwood is the headmaster of the Academy. And it’s safe to say, they’ve both had some serious failings. Here’s 5 reasons why Albus is the worst, and 5 reasons why Faustus is.

10 Blackwood: Because He Seems To Hate Women

Unfortunately it seems like Faustus Blackwood’s attitude towards women mirrors a lot of the attitudes of the other men in the Church of Night, but as the headmaster of the Academy of Unseen Arts, one would hope that he’d be a bit more egalitarian.

One would assume that half of the students at the Academy are girls, so to give those witches a sub-par education solely because of his own prejudices is an absolutely abysmal standard to set for the leader of the entire school.

9 Dumbledore: Because He Plays Favorites

Honestly, Albus Dumbledore plays favorites with students so much that it’s almost bizarre to imagine what it would be like to be one of the students that he’s doesn’t favor, or worse one of the students that is on the outs with him.

The extra attention that Dumbledore gave to Harry did make a lot of sense, but beyond that he really shouldn’t have favored so many other students so clearly. He seems to unfairly give credit to all Gryffindors, and it doesn’t seem like his behavior towards students will teach the students anything.

8 Blackwood: Because He Seems To Hate Children

It seems more likely than not that Faustus Blackwood has chosen to lead the Academy of Unseen Arts because it is another source of power for him. However, his distaste for the students at the school is palpable, and even for a power mad man like him it’s bizarre to think that he would sacrifice his own happiness for the sake of controlling children he hates.

RELATED: 5 TV Wizards That Sabrina Spellman Can Beat (& 5 She’d Lose Against)

Theoretically leading these kids should engender some kind of loyalty to him which could be useful, except because he treats them so vilely it seems utterly pointless.

7 Dumbledore: Because He Often Leaves Students Defenseless

Albus Dumbledore is one of the most powerful wizards who has ever lived, and he will obviously give his life to defend any student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

However, he tends to rely on his own power to defeat those who might harm the students instead of giving them the tools to protect themselves. And in this particular era it seems like Defense Against the Dark Arts would be the most important class in the school, and yet Dumbledore continuously hires utterly unqualified professors for the job.

6 Blackwood: Because He’s Only Out For Himself

To maybe be more fair to the awfulness that is Faustus Blackwood, while he does seem to hate women and children, he seems to have pretty much no regard for anyone else in the world either.

He is only concerned about how he can use a situation to his advantage, and he won’t hesitate to harm or kill anyone who gets in his way. And there are some pretty obvious issues with that kind of attitude when you are in charge of caring for dozens of young students.

5 Dumbledore: Because He Hires Incompetent Teachers

As the headmaster of a school, one would hope that Albus Dumbledore would be well versed in what it takes to be an effective teacher. However, his historical hiring procedure seems like it must be severely lacking, because many of the teachers he has hired seem barely capable of functioning in the real world let alone teaching young children how to navigate it.

Take Professor Trelawney, for instance, who was hired solely for the fact that she had one legitimate prophecy in her entire life, which she didn’t even recall having.

4 Blackwood: Because He Abandoned His Daughter

Faustus Blackwood is truly cold as ice. It’s one thing that he doesn’t care about the people around him, but to leave his own child an orphan and watch her grow up without ever reaching out or even telling her is a whole other level.

RELATED: Sabrina: 5 Reasons We’d Rather Study At Hogwarts (& 5 Why We’d Rather Study At The Academy of Unseen Arts)

For god’s sake, even Cersei Lannister loved her children. When you can be held up in comparison to the most monstrous characters on earth and still look bad, you know you’re looking at a well and truly terrible person.

3 Dumbledore: Because He Hires Dangerous Teachers

So it’s one issue that Albus Dumbledore has a habit of hiring teachers who are fundamentally incapable of teaching any student anything. However, it’s quite another issue that he seems to repeatedly hire teachers who are actually dangerous to their students.

He was kind to Remus Lupin by hiring him, but letting a werewolf around a bunch of children who are completely unaware of his condition is dangerous. And he didn’t know that Mad-Eye Moody was really Barty Crouch Jr., but even the real Moody is too dangerous to be a professor.

2 Blackwood: Because He’s A Truly Awful Person

As Faustus has demonstrated dozens of times by now, he is willing to do absolutely anything in order to get what he wants, and doing things more monstrous than most people can conceive of don’t even faze him anymore.

He is ready and willing to murder any of his students to get what he wants, so that should obviously disqualify him from the headmaster position. But even putting his brutality aside, clearly none of the students beneath him will learn anything good from him, even if he doesn’t actively try to hurt them.

1 Dumbledore: Because He’s A Good Person, Sometimes

It’s probably not an entirely fair comparison, however when comparing Albus Dumbledore with Faustus Blackwood something becomes readily apparent. Faustus does awful things to people because he’s an evil man. But Dumbledore is not.

He is generally a very good man, who will occasionally do very bad things to people if it suits his fancy. He’s not worse than Faustus in terms of what he’s done, but since he actually has a moral code, is it worse that he willingly breaks it for his own gain?

The Good Wife: 5 Best Main Characters (& 5 Worst) | ScreenRant

How would the pubic view another lawyer show? This had to be the question on the minds of CBS executives as the idea of The Good Wife was pitched to them. However, unlike others, this one has a bit of a unique spin to it. Yes, there was courtroom drama, love triangles, and enough lawyer mumbo-jumbo to keep the law geeks thrilled. But what about the storylines and characters?

With a large and diverse cast, characters came and went as frequently as week-to-week court cases. But the main ones, they were the characters that provided the essence of what the show was about. Here are the five best main characters and the five worst from The Good Wife.

RELATED: The Good Wife: 5 Best (And 5 Worst) Relationships

10 Cary Agos (Best)

In the beginning, it was a competition. It wasn’t their fault, that blame belongs to the firm. Cary was a complete a-hole to Alicia and almost everyone else that you wanted to hate him so bad. But as time went on, he became one of the good guys.

Did Cary have his hands in a few things questionable? Yes, just as much as everyone else on the show. But Cary wanted more. He wanted to run things his own way and when he and Alicia started their own Firm, it gave clear, me all Mr. Cargo pegged all wrong.

9 Peter Florrick (Worst)

The cheating husband. Peter had too many skeletons in his closet to be considered a good guy. He out his family in the spotlight by placing his personal interest first. Alicia was willing to stay but the pain was just unbearable to stay put. While the family was suffering, Peter didn’t abandon his position in the political race, instead of falling back, he went harder.

While a big piece of that was due to Eli Gold whispering in his ear, Peter didn’t fight back as he should have. Most fans have no sympathy for Peter even as he begged got Alicia’s forgiveness and couldn’t figure out why his kids were giving him the cold shoulder. To put it plainly, Peter Florrick was the villain of The Good Wife.

8 Colin Sweeny (Best)

This may not go over well with some but Colin Sweeny was such a great character to have on The Good Wife. At least once per season, he found himself in some sort of trouble. Normally, it involved murder. But it was his demeanor that made his character so beloved.

RELATED: 15 Secrets Behind The Good Wife You Had No Idea About

Despite the bad deeds he was accused of, Sweeny was so unbothered by what anyone thought of him except Alicia. There was a game of Cat and Mouse between the two that was more brother and sister like that lawyer and client. Was he a killer? Well, the jury is still out on that.

7 Kalinda Sharma (Worst)

This is a hard one here. There were times you disliked Kalinda and others where you praised her efforts. What had so many on the fence regarding her was that it was all about the job. As a private investigator, it was her job to find the problem and make things disappear.

Kalinda was good. But she did have her demons. And one of them was a quick affair with Peter Florrick. At that moment, Alicia had to and their friendship. Should Kalinda had said something in the beginning? Despite her valiant efforts to amend their relationship, Kalinda lost what respect many viewers had for her.

6 Elsbeth Tascioni (Best)

The lawyer we all wish we had on our side. What made Elsbeth so good was how worried she was. She practiced and studied the same law like everyone else but her tactics were, well, different. Where most saw only black and white, Elsbeth saw the beginning, middle, and end with unicorns in between. When Alicia needed her, Elsbeth was always there.

She didn’t hold judgment against anyone until she learned the truth. She was fearless and would take on the biggest lawyer or corporations without breaking a sweat.

5 Eli Gold (Worst)

The Master of Spin is what Eli Gold should have been nicknamed. A political strategist, Eli was always out for one thing– his image. While it was his job to made a candidate look good to the public even after an earth-shattering scandal, Eli was often thrown into the cave with no flashlight. He fought his way out but his armor had too many holes and dents. It was often hard to like him.

RELATED: MBTI® Of The Good Wife Characters

To give his character some sort of moral compass, the writers for The Good Wife decided to throw his daughter into the mix. It almost worked but we fell in love with her more than we did Eli.

4 David Lee (Best)

What made David so special was that he was a straight shooter. In a field where so many lied and manipulated the system, David Lee gave it to everyone straight. He wanted to be the best and wasn’t shy about his position or lack of respect he was receiving. There were always punches thrown when David was around because he wanted to make his presence felt at all times.

Although not known as a comedy, David provided the laughter for the show whenever he was onscreen. By far, one of the best personalities during its run.

3 Diane Lockhart (Worst)

It took a while for most viewers to understand the plight of Diane Lockhart. While her character has grown on The Good Fight, she was not always like that. In the beginning, she appeared to be threatened by Alicia. For whatever reason, it made no sense at all. While Will was alive, it was a two-man show at the firm. Even so, Diane often brought much of her personal life into the office.

She was a great lawyer but held this chip on her shoulder that gave off an impression as stuck up. Her hands were just as dirty as others but I always felt that the writers should have forced a stronger bond between her and Alicia.

2 Alicia Florrick (Best)

It all began rough for Alicia played by Julianna Margulies. She took everything head-on and never backed down. The challenges she faced in the courtroom still couldn’t match what she had to face at home. So, while many of the other characters took the easy way out, Alicia was forced to earn her respect the hard way.

Her husband was involved in a major scandal and just like that, she was a single mom, with no job but had a law degree she could fall back on. What I admired about her with the decision to get back into law was the unknown.

1 Will Gardner (Worst)

For some, Will was the knight in shining armor. However, his character was a bit on the dry side. Will always had a thing for Alicia and by admitting that, he often put her in tight situations which is one of the reasons why Alicia and Diane had their problems. While his death was tragic, it was needed in order for the show to grow.

Will knew that Alicia was vulnerable but still went after her knowing she wasn’t quite ready to love despite what she said. While there was chemistry, the majority of their relationship was built on what was in the past. They both used each other but Will had the power to shut it down.

Star Wars: 5 Worst Things Anakin Did To Padme (& 5 She Did To Him)

The characters of Anakin and Padme Star Wars had a rocky relationship from the start, leading to her death and his turn to the dark side. The two had some blissful moments, beautiful memories the two reminisce before their untimely deaths. However, all wasn’t so steady the whole time as the two both made some questionable decisions.

RELATED: Star Wars: 5 Reasons The Old Republic Should Be Adapted Into Film (& 5 It Should Be TV)

No relationship is perfect and Anakin’s and Padme’s is a prime example of a partner’s insecurities getting the best of him. With that here are the five worst things Anakin did to Padme, and vice versa, from their respective Star Wars films.

10 Anakin: Insulted Her In Front of the Naboo Council

Anakin doesn’t know his place sometimes and steps out of line when his confidence is questioned. When Padme refers to him as a padawan rather than a Jedi, he responds outrageously by causing a scene.

This may not have been life-threatening, but embarrassing seeing as Anakin loved her but is blinded by jealousy at times. This should have been a red flag for Padme but instead went right over her head as a common miscommunication.

9 Padme: Questioned his Allegiance

Towards the latter half of Revenge of the Sith, Padme begins to notice the corruption within the Republic. She toys with the idea that perhaps they’re on the wrong side, and should abandon their current lives for a better one.

RELATED: Star Wars: Rebels: 10 Best Episodes According To IMDb

For once Anakin is in the right as Padme sounds like a Separatist, further pushing him over the edge and closer to Palpatine’s grip. Padme was thinking out loud, but that doesn’t mean Anakin had to feel the brunt of it.

8 Anakin: Predicted Her Death

Anakin is haunted by premonitions and nightmares, keeping him from a peaceful sleep with Padme. Instead of keeping these to himself, he chooses to explain how she’ll die in childbirth. Honesty and trust is everything in a relationship but Anakin goes too far by believing these dreams and vows to not let them happen.

Instead of heeding Padme’s advice to dismiss it as a dream, Anakin chooses to let him dream become a reality, one that haunts him for the rest of his life.

7 Padme: Didn’t Believe in Him

Qui-Gon may have placed too much trust in young Anakin to win the pod race, but that doesn’t mean Padme can’t believe in him. In The Phantom Menace, Padme thinks of Anakin as a little boy, unimpressed by his pod racer and the fact that he’s never finished a race before.

RELATED: Star Wars: The Clone Wars – 10 Connections To The Star Wars Movies You Never Noticed

Padme’s lack of confidence inspires nothing but doubt in Anakin, thankfully Qui Gon was there to ensure Anakin reached out with his feelings rather than his mind to win the race.

6 Anakin: Fell in Love with Her

Despite the lovely nature of this one, it holds a tremendous amount of significance. As a Jedi, Anakin is forbidden from attachments which is why his decision to be with Padme is treasonous. But outside the context of the Jedi Order, Anakin’s romance with Padme is nothing but a distraction from her job as a senator.

Not only that but his emotional baggage and parental issues cause nothing but additional stress for her until he finally kills her.

5 Padme: Married Anakin in Secret

Padme is smarter than this, but her decision to not only marry Anakin but to do so in secret is foolish. Her choice to hide their relationship reinforces Anakin’s notion that they’re actions are justifiable. She unintentionally brings Anakin down to a level he can’t escape from, obsessing over her instead of loving her.

RELATED: Star Wars: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Padmé Amidala

This obsession is heightened with their marriage, with Anakin’s greed and jealousy only growing larger from here on out. She may not have done it on purpose, but Padme should have known her actions would have consequences.

4 Anakin: Lost Her in the Droid Factory

council tasked him with protecting Padme, residing on Naboo to ensure an assassination attempt isn’t repeated. But he drops his responsibility and he lets her go to Geonosis and continues to lose ger in the Droid factory.

Though it was Padme’s decision to go, Anakin failed to protect her from harm and join Kenobi in the execution arena.

3 Padme: Twins

Falling in line with the news of the baby, Padme not only surprises Anakin with her pregnancy but hides the fact that she’s carrying twins. Even Kenobi was shocked upon hearing it and didn’t know how to react.

RELATED: Star Wars: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Anakin And Padmé’s Relationship

Despite the level of courage, compassion and bravery Padme possesses she’s naive and lets her blind love for Anakin steer for her.

2 Anakin: Killed Her

The most obvious one on this list, Anakin’s jealousy, anger and (to quote Obi-Wan Kenobi) his lust for power causes him to kill the woman he’s loved and adored since he was a little boy. Padme was innocent and wanted nothing more than to be with Anakin and help him through his shift to the dark side.

Not only that, but he choked her out of hatred while she was pregnant, causing her to die in childbirth either of a broken heart or from the birth itself (this is an often contested point within the fandom.) It doesn’t get more Shakespearian than that, a tragic ending for a tragic duo.

1 Padme: Had a child

Padme is well aware of the Jedi Order’s views on marriage, attachments, and children. But she ignores this and chooses to have a child with Anakin despite being a Jedi and a member of the council. Not only that, but Anakin’s response was awkward, reluctant to feel as happy as she is about the news.

Padme may have lost in love and only wanted the best for her and Anakin, but this sent him over the edgeand simply stirred the pot that would lead to his fall to the dark side.

The 5 Best (& 5 Worst) Action Movie Sequels | ScreenRant

Action movies are a dime a dozen because if there are explosions, shootouts, and a couple of zippy one-liners, moviegoers will generally deem an action movie passable. And since most action movies aim for this low bar, because it’s just easier, the truly great ones tend to stand out.

RELATED: The 5 Best (& 5 Worst) Action Movies For Fist Fights

Then, these great action movies get sequels that are phoned in for an easy paycheck and usually fall into the pitfalls that their predecessors avoided. As a result, the truly great sequels tend to stand out, too, and the cycle repeats itself. Anyway, without further ado, here are the 5 best (and 5 worst) action movie sequels.

10 Best: Lethal Weapon 2

The original Lethal Weapon movie spent its runtime getting Riggs and Murtaugh to learn how to work together, and by the end, they were best friends. So, the story didn’t naturally lend itself to a sequel; there was no more conflict in their relationship.

Lethal Weapon 2 fixed this by giving them a really sinister villain to team up against: a South African diplomat with immunity from the law who was targeting cops. This is action cinema at its finest.

9 Worst: Taken 3

Neither of the Taken sequels have lived up to the visceral intensity and nonstop energy of the original, but the third one really took the cake. While Taken 2 eschewed the gritty realism of the original in favor of chucking grenades all over Istanbul, Taken 3 jumped the shark for a pastiche of The Fugitive.

Bryan Mills’ ex-wife Lenore is killed and he’s framed for her murder, so he has to go on the lam to clear his name. There are so many cuts, supposedly to liven up the action, that you’ll feel disorientated whenever Liam Neeson runs around a corner or throws a punch.

8 Best: The Enforcer

1971’s Dirty Harry was followed by four sequels, with mixed results. The best of those sequels was the third installment, 1976’s The Enforcer, which took the Harry Callahan character and placed him in an entirely different narrative.

Instead of redoing the “vigilante cop” angle from the first two movies, The Enforcer paired him up with Inspector Kate Moore, a female recruit played by Tyne Daly whose promotion he initially objects to. As an action-packed study of gender relations, this movie set the mold for 2012’s Dredd.

7 Worst: Rambo III

First Blood introduced us to John Rambo in a pretty serious, contemplative drama. He’d returned from Vietnam with PTSD to find that all his old war buddies had died, and got pushed to breaking point by a small-town police department. In the sequel, he was turned into the killing machine we know him as today, as he went back to Vietnam to liberate P.O.W.s.

This was a wild departure from the original film, but a rollicking cinematic ride all the same. Rambo III, however, really sucked. Rambo was sent to Afghanistan to save Col. Trautman from the Soviets, and it was too ludicrous to be entertaining. There’s even a scene with an ostrich race.

6 Best: Fast Five

This was the Fast installment that gave the franchise the shot in the arm that it needed to break through and become one of the highest-grossing franchises of all time. Fast Five turned the franchise from a series of generic actioners about street racers into a series of superhero movies that replace the characters’ super-suits with cars.

Dom, Brian, and the crew head to Rio de Janeiro to pull off a daring heist and butt heads with a tough-as-nails government agent named Hobbs, played by Dwayne Johnson.

5 Worst: A Good Day To Die Hard

None of the Die Hard sequels are as great as the original, but that was never really an option. Die Hard never really had a bad sequel until A Good Day to Die Hard, because no matter how absurd the storylines got, the movies always stayed true to the character of John McClane – until they sent him to Russia and made him an invincible, gun-toting maniac who acts first and thinks second.

The guy who was once incapacitated by some shards of glass on the floor can now fall from any height, get shot any number of times, and be exposed to any amount of radiation, and come out without a scratch.

4 Best: Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Due to Tom Cruise’s willingness to risk his life to no end, the Mission: Impossible movies keep getting crazier and crazier. The latest entry, 2018’s Fallout, exemplifies everything that makes this franchise great.

To create the mesmerizing action in this movie, Cruise rode a motorcycle the wrong way around the Arc de Triomphe, dangled from a helicopter mid-takeoff, and broke a bone in his leg when he misjudged the jump between two buildings, and still finished the take. Fallout flings its characters from one dangerous situation to another and forces them to make difficult decisions at every step of the way.

3 Worst: Escape From L.A.

John Carpenter’s Escape from New York is one of the most influential action movies ever made. Kurt Russell’s tough-as-nails portrayal of Snake Plissken has inspired every big-screen action hero from the ‘80s onwards. Arriving 15 years later, its sequel, Escape from L.A., crashed and burned.

While the original used narrative simplicity to focus on the action, the sequel tries to have its cake and eat it, too. It’s a prime example of a filmmaker trying to poke fun at a thing, but actually creating a prime example of that thing.

2 Best: Mad Max: Fury Road

While the previous entry is an example of a sequel that escaped from years in development hell and failed to live up to expectations, this is an example of one that greatly exceeded expectations. George Miller returned to action cinema in style with Mad Max: Fury Road.

RELATED: What A Lovely Day: 10 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About Mad Max: Fury Road

By using CGI sparingly and featuring as much in-camera practical stunt work and special effects as possible, Miller created one of the 21st century’s most visceral moviegoing experiences. When you can tell that people are doing stunts for real, it gives you a whole new appreciation for what you’re watching, and the work that went into making it. As an audience member, it’s akin to watching the acrobatic wizardry of Cirque du Soleil.

1 Worst: Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome

George Miller has mostly delivered satisfying, action-packed, post-apocalyptic knockouts with the Mad Max franchise, but the third movie, Beyond Thunderdome, is a total mess. The gritty, hard-hitting realism of The Road Warrior was thrown out in favor of a mindless ‘80s sci-fi spectacle.

There are some interesting ideas in Beyond Thunderdome as Miller expands the franchise’s world-building, but at the end of the day, world-building has never really been the forte of a franchise famous for its intense action sequences and breathtaking car stunts.

The 5 Best & 5 Worst Movie Lawyers Of All Time | ScreenRant

Law is a popular topic in cinema. Hundreds of movie lawyers over the past several decades have made the courtroom seem like a fun place to just sit in and follow proceedings. And even in movies that don’t necessarily revolve around the legal system, there is always a lawyer or two somewhere.

RELATED: 10 Crime Movies That Are Completely Underrated

While some movie lawyers are so good that they make you get up from your seat and celebrate when the verdict goes in their client’s favor, others are so incompetent they make you sympathize with whomever they are representing. Here are the best and worst movie lawyers of all time.

10 Best: Mickey Haller (The Lincoln Lawyer)

Matthew McConaughey’s list of great performances is as long as an ancient scroll but this was his career-best. In the movie, he is a struggling criminal defense attorney who is unable to afford an office so he uses the back seat of his chauffeured Lincoln town car to prepare for his court cases.

Despite his uncomfortable working environment, he knows how to cut deals easily and work the system. He normally represents criminals that are guilty but a big case lands on him and it turns out that his latest wealthy client really is a psychopath. He is thus faced with a dilemma on whether to do his job the way he normally does it or switch things up a bit.

9 Worst: Vincent Gambini (My Cousin Vinny)

Joe Pesci seems better suited for bad guy roles rather than the good guy. In My Cousin Vinny, he plays a lawyer who defends his cousin against a wrongful murder charge in Alabama. His cousin had just left a store before the store clerk was murdered.

Vinny’s incompetence shows when he takes forever to bring in a crucial witness that saves his cousin. Would you blame him? He is said to have passed the bar exams after about ten attempts. What generally saves Pesci’s performance in the movie is his humor. But the next time his cousin needs a lawyer, he should look elsewhere.

8 Best: Erin (Erin Brokovich)

Julia Roberts is fierce in this movie. On one occasion, her character Erin tells her lawyer-turned-boss, “Do they teach lawyers to apologize? Cause you suck at it.” The film tells the real-life story of lawyer and environmental activist Erin Brokovich who had a major legal battle against the energy corporation Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E)

RELATED: Julia Roberts’ 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes

Erin leads a major case against the company for illegally dumping highly toxic chemicals into a local water source. And she manages to convince a whopping 634 plaintiffs to join the case. Roberts won multiple awards for this role including an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and various critics awards for Best Actress.

7 Worst: John Shaunessy (Kramer Vs Kramer)

In one of the best ever movies about divorce, a father is forced to raise his son by himself after his wife Joanna (Meryl Streep) deserts them. Many months later, Joanna returns to demand custody. Having gotten used to the boy, the husband rejects this and the two go to court. The judge awards custody to Joanna because of the “tender years doctrine” rule which states that under extreme circumstances, the custody should be given to the mother. The father considers appealing but his lawyer Shaunessy (Howard Duff) discourages him, saying he’ll be forced to bring his son on the stand. The father doesn’t want that so he lets it go.

The truth is that his son would never have been required to take the stand since appeals are based on records from the original trial, not new evidence. The most the son could have been asked to do is appear in the judge’s chambers to tell his side of the story. Due to Shaunessy’s bad advice, the father loses custody.

6 Best: Frank Galvin (The Verdict)

Frank Galvin is an elderly alcoholic lawyer who ends up losing his job at a big firm. To make his dire situation better, he takes on a medical malpractice case where a hospital’s negligent staff caused a mother to become comatose. Even though he took the case for his own benefit, he begins to sympathize with the clients.

Galvin does everything he can to make them win. His arguments in court are packed with indisputable facts and in the end, he redeems himself while also making sure justice is served.  For his performance, Paul Newmann received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

5 Worst: Fletcher Riddle (Liar Liar)

He’s funny, but you wouldn’t want him to defend you. Fletcher (Jim Carrey) is a lawyer who is incapable of telling a lie or staying quiet when he hears someone telling a lie. Before that, he had a habit of lying so his disappointed son made a birthday wish for his dad to be honest.

RELATED: Jim Carrey’s 10 Most Hilarious Characters, Ranked

Fate granted this wish and Fletcher suddenly woke up as an overly honest human being. It’s a comedy so things are not to be taken seriously, but Fletcher really comes out as a terrible lawyer. Any aspiring lawyer should watch this movie for the laughs and not legal inspiration.

4 Best: Daniel Kaffee (A Few Good Men)

Here’s the film that popularized the phrase, “You can’t handle the truth!” In A Few Good Men, a rookie military lawyer Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is tasked with defending two marines accused of murder after they refuse representation from another veteran lawyer. The two claim they were only acting under orders.

Cruise owns this role so well you’d think he really went to law school. He manages to get the two acquitted of murder charges though they are given the lesser punishment of being discharged from the military. For his performance, Cruise received a Best Actor nomination at the Golden Globes.

3 Worst: Arthur Kirkland (…And Justice For All)

This character is played by Al Pacino, another actor who works better as a bad guy than a good guy. In the movie, Arthur Kirkland discovers that his client is actually guilty and that he’s forcing people to be his alibi. So, what does he do? He screams in court that his client is guilty.

That’s a breach of contract so he won’t get paid. It’s good to have a conscience but one wonders whether he’ll now be able to pay his rent using “conscience” instead of cash. Kirkland will now have to go to a store and tell the cashier, “My credit card isn’t working, but do you accept conscience as a form of payment?” He simply could have notified the judge privately in his chambers about his client’s dirty tactics instead of screaming in court.

2 Best: Michael (Michael Clayton)

In the movie, Michael is a lawyer and fixer who makes sure all the cases in a law firm run smoothly. He is brought in to fix the situation after one of the other lawyers suffers a mental breakdown while defending an agrochemicals company that he believes is guilty. Michael soon discovers he might have bitten more than he can chew after his car gets blown up.

RELATED: George Clooney’s 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes

Clooney got an Oscar nomination for Best Actor while the movie as a whole received seven nominations. The movie also has a 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes. If you want a good legal drama to watch and you also want to see George Clooney at his best, this is your best bet.

1 Worst: Frito Pendejo (Idiocracy)

The movie is set in a dystopian future where the majority of the population is dumb. Joe Bauers, a former army librarian, wakes up 500 years and finds himself the most intelligent human alive. He is arrested after visiting a hospital without a bar code to pay for the services.

He is assigned the lawyer Frito Pendejo to defend him in court. Since the lawyer is basically stupid, Joe loses the case. When an IQ test determines that he’s the smartest person alive, the president tasks him with saving the dying agricultural sector. He soon discovers that the people have been irrigating crops with soda instead of water. Jesus!

5 Best (& 5 Worst) Movies About Viruses | ScreenRant

With the 2020 new coronavirus (nCOV) outbreak being raised as an international emergency, it is a better time to prepare for the risks and protect ourselves from danger.  Likewise, it is a timely subject to explore in film. And usually, movies with viruses as their subject fall under the disaster movie genre since they follow the same procedurals with national disaster.

RELATED: 10 Best Disaster Movies Ever, Ranked

For that, here are some of the best movies about viruses and some of the worst ones that depict such outbreaks.

Just a disclaimer, movies about viruses that zombify people would not count since they deserve a list on their own.

10 Worst: Doomsday (2008)

It seems that the immediate result of deadly viruses are Mad Max-like apocalyptic landscapes and the undead. Well, it is what sums up the forgettable 2008 sci-fi action film Doomsday, wherein a team of Londoners travels to Scotland to find a possible cure from a deadly virus and fends off a weird ragtag group of evaders, ranging from knights to barbarians.

Director Neil Marshall was really inspired by the Mad Max movies that he conceived of a dystopian future with medieval knights and pillagers. Suffice to say, it is mediocre.

9 Best: The Andromeda Strain (1971)

Based on the Michael Crichton novel, the movie centers on a group of scientists who investigate a quarantined town that was plagued with a contagious strain of an extraterrestrial organism. A classic on its own, The Andromeda Strain layers itself with its depiction of a desolate environment, mixed with 70’s depiction of technology, with an imminent threat beneath them.

On a technical level, it is an achievement with convincing special effects for the ’70s. And on its editing aspect, it is one of the first effective uses of split screens.

8 Worst: Antisocial (2013)

Horror movies would always misuse the subject of viruses as a scare tactic to their horror segments. And starting off that trend in this list is this forgotten Canadian horror flick Antisocial. The film is about a young woman who, along with her friends, finds herself in the middle of a growing epidemic outside of a house party.

RELATED: 10 Worst Horror Movies On Netflix, According To IMDb

This trashy horror flick is a distasteful depiction of violence and viral effects that downplays its subject to be a cheap catch for scares. This is best kept under quarantine for long.

7 Best: Contagion (2011)

Contagion is a Steven Soderbergh joint that boasts an all-star cast including Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Bryan Cranston. And as usual for Soderbergh’s previous works, this is a multi-narrative picture that traces the origins of a virus, its looming spread, its effects on society and the government’s attempts to salvage survivors and find a cure.

RELATED: Steven Soderbergh’s 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes

The film is a serviceable thriller that almost accurately portrays the birth and demise of an epidemic. And the cast and aesthetics are topnotch for Soderbergh.

6 Worst: Dreamcatcher (2003)

Even a Stephen King work gets to be a subject of a bad horror film about viruses. And while 2016’s Cell is a ridiculous techno-thriller that laughably lays its premise of a cellphone-triggering meltdown, 2003’s Dreamcatcher is a lame cabin-fever alien film that haplessly goes with the motions. A domestic encounter of parasitic aliens is a potential one, but director Lawrence Kasdan and writer William Goldman does not give any care.

But the end result is an unintentionally funny horror film, with hammy performances from Damian Lewis and Jason Lee.

5 Best: Panic in the Streets (1950)

Directed by the legendary Elia Kazan, Panic in the Streets centers on a public health officer and a police captain who track down a homicide victim, discovering him to be infected, and try their best to stop a contagious plague from spreading, under a ticking clock. While the film has been initially met with middling reviews, it received subsequent praise for its noir aspects and its performances of its lesser-known cast.

Richard Widmark’s turn as U.S. Public Health Service officer Clinton Reed is unorthodox yet effective in each scene.

4 Worst: The 5th Wave (2016)

There are worse ways to downplay an apocalyptic threat that marks the seconds to the end of the world. Here is one dud from 2016, based on another young-adult bestseller. This sci-fi disaster film sets its premise on five waves that threaten humanity: the first being blackouts, the second being tsunamis, the third being avian flu, the fourth being decimation and the fifth still being determined.

But on its brief depiction of a virus, it was played for stale sentiment. And that is just a fraction of the movie’s poor quality. Chloe Moretz tried, but The 5th Wave is horrendous.

3 Best: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

As a prequel to the Planet of the Apes, this was initially speculated with skepticism. But Rise of the Planet of the Apes surprised everyone with an engaging story, credible performances and the motion-capture effects by Weta Digital. The ape in the center is Caesar, played spectacularly by Andy Serkis in his mo-cap suit, who experienced an evolution both character-wise and physiologically. Thanks to his character arc, the film spawned a consistently stirring trilogy.

RELATED: 10 Things The Planet Of The Apes Reboot Needs

The virus at the center, starting as a medicine, is a plausible explanation for humanity’s demise that carries on to the original Planet of the Apes.

2 Worst: Cabin Fever (2016)

As mentioned, horror movies tend to use the subject of viruses as a cheap way for scares and threats. No other horror film has more abused that subject than the 2016 remake of the Eli Roth suspense Cabin Fever. The explanation for its existence, even though the original is bad on itself, is anyone’s guess. But this horror movie failingly amps up the scares and plays the scares with recklessness to logic.

The plot is, obviously, like the original, in that five peers accede to a virus that is hidden in their cabin. But, it is done without passion.

1 Best: It Comes at Night (2017)

And finally, the best of the virus-centered movies does not center on the virology of its disease, but on its domestic aftermath. Take the 2017 indie horror film It Comes at Night, directed by Trey Edward Shults and starred by Joel Edgerton, Carmen Ejogo, Christopher Abbott, Riley Keough and Kelvin Harrison Jr.

Here, a family resorted to hiding in an isolated home encounters a young family wanting to seek refuge. While the virus is largely vague, it is clearly looming over the psyche of the characters. And what resulted is an emotional turmoil that is more fatal than the virus.

America’s Got Talent: Season 1 Was the Worst | Screen Rant

There are many reasons why America’s Got Talent season 1 was the worst season. The show suffered from a lack of identity in its inaugural year, and the problems only grew from there.

The lineup that season included host Regis Philbin and a judging panel consisting of singer Brandy Norwood, David Hasselhoff and Piers Morgan. In the beginning, AGT struggled to find its footing among a sea of competition talent programs. American Idol – also a Simon Cowell creation – was a ratings juggernaut. Critics began comparisons of the two shows, which were compounded by the prevalence of vocal talent auditioning for a spot in AGT‘s finale. There were concerns that the show should be more mindful about embracing ALL talents and not just singers. Next, there was the addition of Piers Morgan to the lineup. The British journalist was completely out of place judging a show about talent alongside actual celebrities. Morgan wasn’t a huge name in the United States at the time. Sure, he may have had some appeal in the U.K., but producer-creator Simon Cowell had a real opportunity to put a talent with gravitas in that seat, but didn’t. With each performance, Hasselhoff and Norwood weighed in and it came from a place of “I’ve been there,” or “Trust me and my experience: This wasn’t your night.” However, Morgan’s critiques were exponentially more harsh.

Related: America’s Got Talent: Season 14 Was The Best Season

Very quickly into the season, Morgan solidified himself as the tough judge, taking a page from Simon Cowell’s book on American Idol. He often gave curt critiques of acts that he felt lacked the level of talent he expected. Morgan’s ire even extended to the audience from time to time. He once said to the crowd: “Audience, if you want to go through, cheer, wait, if you think maybe it’s the biggest waste of space you’ve ever seen then boo.”

The first season’s champion was 11-year-old Bianca Ryan. She auditioned with the song “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from the Broadway musical Dreamgirls. Ryan became an instant favorite with the judges and viewers alike. Her voice had a soulful maturity unlike anyone else competing that season. In her finale performance, she sang “I Am Changing” – also from Dreamgirls. Ryan returned to the show in season 2 to cheer on the contestants before the finale. The runners up in season 1 were the clogging dance group All That, as well as the singing/magic duo The Millers, who came in third place.

America’s Got Talent has grown into a wonderful family-friendly showcase of talent from all over the country. However, its first season left a lot to be desired. Looking back, it was missing the spark that some of the later episodes would come to have. Not only that, but the show’s curse of having a revolving door of personnel among its judges and hosts started with Norwood leaving due to an ongoing legal issue. Hasselhoff would later vacate his station as a judge due to issues connected with his alcoholism. Even Philbin would be replaced by Jerry Springer. Thankfully, fans of the show now have a formula that works much better onscreen, despite its difficulties behind the scenes.
