The frost is on the pumpkin, a chill is in the air, and a deranged serial killer in a creepy mask is haunting our nightmares. Yes, that’s right; it’s Halloween season — and after ranking the 25 best superhero movies, comedy movies, and sci-fi movies of the last 25 years, it’s the perfect time for the staff of ScreenCrush to compile the 25 greatest horror films of the modern era as well.

25 ‘Star Wars’ Easter Eggs in Other Movies and TV Shows

EDIT

Most Star Wars references in other movies and TV shows are pretty obvious and therefore pretty boring. The staff here at ScreenCrush prefer the ones that fall under the umbrella of Easter eggs; hidden, subliminal, or extremely subtle hat-tips to the franchise, often as background gags or co-opted lines of dialogue. As we gear up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (now less than three months away!), it seemed like the perfect time to collect 25 of the most clever Star Wars Easter eggs from other movies (and TV shows!) and put them together into one gallery, which you’ll find above.

They’ve just wrapped up a massive Global Unboxing Event for #ForceFriday, the grand unveiling of the new toys for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And looking through the acton figures that were unveiled, there are some really impressive likenesses. The little Finn, for example, really looks like John Boyega. And then are a few that don’t. The action figure version of Rey could be Daisy Ridley. But if you put it in front of me with no context (and no awesome BB-8 accessory), I’d probably be a little lost. I might guess it’s a Natalie Portman figure from Revenge of the Sith.

When it’s all said and done, the summer of 2015 will be remembered for a few things. The way Jurassic World dominated the humanoid world; the ocean of tears that flooded theaters showing Inside Out; Straight Outta Compton topping superheroes and reboots at the August box office. What’s likely to get overlooked amidst those stories is the summer’s biggest theme, one that ran through many of the season’s biggest hits and flops: Terrible parents.

The 50 Best Movie Taglines in History

EDIT

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (somewhere near West Orange, New Jersey) movies were simple things; made silently, projected in black and white. With time, their production grew more sophisticated. And as the movies themselves got more intricate, so too did their marketing. It wasn’t long into the history of movies that ads started carrying taglines; snappy ad copy designed to explain a movie’s premise at a glance and convince potential viewers to plunk down their hard-earned dollars for a ticket. Filmsite.org dates the practice all the way back to the silent era (“Love, Locomotives, and Laughs” read the tagline for The General), but the practice as we know it really came of age in the late 1970s, as the blockbuster era ushered in a whole new level of movie advertising.
