Movies & Series

Carrie Fisher was way too young by any stretch of the imagination. There are loads of videos you can watch but I have selected a few that were most interesting to me. But let’s be fair: if it’s Carrie you want, go see the original Star Wars or the Force Awakens this weekend. The digital Carrie is on the big screen today as well at the very end of Rogue One.

It turns out that Fisher finished shooting her part for Star Wars 9. That means we’ll see her in the next movie still. Although it will be a strange moment to see her perform one last time in about a year.


Just go to steam and buy something nice for you okay? I know that that is what you want ;-).

Since this is the last week of the year, it is a good time to look ahead to which games you will get to enjoy next year. Luckily there are a lot of great writers out there who made overviews of the year ahead. (Like this Polygon feature story)
