"Isabella vs. the Womp Womp" is cancelled. Upon watching the Old Navy music video that inspired the idea, I've decided I need to tell a story with similar themes that's not necessarily based on that ad.
Two can be stronger than one, and I'm celebrating that by counting down my top 10 Star Wars duos.
10. Kanan Jarrus & Hera Syndulla
Spectre 1 and Spectre 2. They're good leaders of the rebel faction Star Wars Rebels showcases, and work well with each other and the rest of the rebel team. 9. Luke Skywalker & R2-D2
A boy and his faithful beeping astromech. Luke flies with R2 in his X-wing, R2 helped show where Luke was hiding in The Force Awakens, R2 retrieved Luke's lamp while Yoda beat the droid (I'll take questions later). 8. Finn & Poe Dameron
They seemed like best friends the minute Finn rescued Poe in The Force Awakens. Poe even let Finn keep his jacket, and that shows they are truly friends. 7. Chirrut Imwe & Baze Malbus
Two friends played by two Chinese actors who are already friends. They were helpful members of the Rogue One team, but like the rest of the team, gave their lives to save the Death Star plans. 6. Lando Calrissian & Lobot
Star Wars is a great film series, but it's had its fair share of terrible characters - and not all of them have been in the prequels. This list is not meant to show that George Lucas is selfish and hates his fans (I've heard of Star Wars fans who think that) but, rather, that in all eras of Star Wars (movies, TV shows, expanded universe) there are terrible characters that lack creativity in their creation.
10. The Guavian soldiers, or as they're better known, the "Target troopers" from Episode VII.
Target seems to love their Star Wars as much as their megaphone-wielding moms, and the Guavian soldiers from The Force Awakens just feel like product placement in their character design - all red, but with a design that looks like a Target logo on their head. 9. Jar Jar Binks. I actually don't think he's that bad, but I'm pretty sure that if I didn't put him on this list, Star Wars fans would stop reading my blog. Jar Jar may have ruined the movie franch…
Just what were they thinking when they made these? For this list I’m looking at colleges that have named their athletic teams shocking or unusual things.
The countdown starts now: 12. Xavier Musketeers. Nothing’s wrong with the Musketeers, unless your mascot isn’t even a musketeer. Their mascot is named “The Blue Blob”, and is exactly what it says on the tin. It’s so funny it comes out the other side to genuinely intimidating.
11. Whittier College Poets. Because no one fears poets, except when they look like this nightmare. Seriously, that thing doesn’t even look human. And what might they say at graduation? “Mr. Clark Haile will not be receiving a diploma because he can’t write poems. We here are the Poets, so if you are incapable of writing poetry, you must transfer, Mr. Haile.” If that’s the truth, then close Whittier College.
10. Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers. What is a Hilltopper, anyway? Apparently it’s this thing, which looks like a red Jabba the Hutt with legs and feet. …
