"Don't you know that you're toxic?"
John Williams's epic score does a lot to make Star Wars what it is, and that's no different with the most recent addition to the franchise, The Last Jedi. Director Rian Johnson even shared a video of Williams doing his thing, but what would the movie be like with some ... different musical stylings? The perfect Friday Twitter thread has us covered.Read More
No, Google, I didn't mean "Kylux." No, don't open Tumblr. ... OK fine.
No matter how much some corners of the internet enjoy the pairing, I don't want to see Kylo Ren and Rey anywhere near each other unless Rey is kicking his butt in laser sword combat. No, the only pairing I'm interested in when it comes to Kylo is the one of ultimate frenemies: Kylo Ren and Armitage Hux.Read More
More Than a Monster in a Mask, Kylo Ren Struggles to Cope With Childhood Abuse in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
About halfway through Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a character remarks, “Good guys, bad guys… made up words.” The franchise’s characters are historically known to see everything as mainly black or white, much to their detriment. It’s no coincidence someone would make this observation in a film where it’s never been clearer, that it’s unclear who the bad guy truly is in the current Star Wars universe.Read More
Now that Star Wars: Battlefront II has given players the ability to mod characters, one blessed internet genius has created a skin which transforms Kylo Ren into his alter ego/disguise, Matt the Radar Technician.Read More
Let's be honest. Whether you loved or loathed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there was one thing at the center of that loving and loathing. Shirtless Kylo Ren. You know it's true. John Mayer and the rest of the Internet know it's true, too.Read More
Kylo Ren is a well-written, well-performed villain. But I think there's another reason the character is resonating. In his petty and dangerous fascist rage, Kylo is a villain that we can all recognize in 2017: an alt-right man-child.Read More
Star Wars: The Last Jedi has only been in theaters for a little over a week, and already, a lot has been said about the movie, its quality, the way it handles fan expectations, the important representation it continues to boost in the franchise, and more. But we're not here to talk about any of that.Read More
Kylo Ren has another reason to be extra insecure about his position in Snoke's First Order because apparently, Snoke has trained at least one other apprentice.Read More
A lot of criticism and praise has been flung both ways when it comes to The Last Jedi. I personally loved the movie, and while I am open to hearing other people's opinions, some of the backlash has been, for a lack of a better word, extra, from alt-right groups wanting to bash the movie because of too many brown people and too many women in charge in their space films. Yet, I think it is unfair to lump all criticism as just the rantings of white dudes.Read More
There were so many things I loved about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, not the least of which was the joy I got watching Kylo Ren whine and moan his way through the entire movie.Read More
What's better than one conflicted villain with a flair for melodrama and over-the-top costuming? Two of them, sharing an apartment. Welcome to the world of KYLOKI.Read More
4.5 out of 5 blue lightsabers.
It's hard to know where to start reviewing The Last Jedi, because so much happens in this movie that I have whiplash. But I'm happy about it. The Mary Sue's spoiler-free review, ahead.Read More
I mean, "fail" may be a bit of an understatement here, considering that Kylo Ren went rogue on his Jedi uncle, slaughtered a bunch of trainees, and betrayed his family and the New Republic. But fail Luke Kylo did, as Yoda might say.Read More
Usually, when we hear about "reveals" or "spoilers" from Star Wars cast members, we usually discover that it actually wasn't all that much. However, Kylo Ren may have actually let a juicy tidbit of information slip during a recent interview!Read More
YouTube channel Auralnauts posted a "reaction video" of Kylo Ren watching the latest trailer for The Last Jedi.Read More

Here’s Why Chewbacca’s Bowcaster Blast Didn’t Kill That Murderous Punk Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens
Chewbacca was all of us.
In the Star Wars universe, Chewbacca's bowcaster weapon packs a hell of a blast. So why didn't it level Vader wannabe Kylo Ren, aka Ben Solo, after Chewbacca hit him square-on? Let's ask math—and the Force.Read More
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Star Wars: Episode VIII is officially less than a year away, and it's high time that we start hearing a little more about it, don't you think? Well, apparently Lucasfilm and Disney think so, too, because they've finally decided to announce the official title for the next chapter in the Skywalker saga...Read More
