Scarjo A Go-Go Episode 31: The Avengers, or, "The Fixer"

We already met the fledgling incarnation of super-spy Black Widow back in Iron Man 2, but can writer/director Joss Whedon work with our hero, Scarlett Johansson, to fix up some of those flaws in his big screen team-building exercise The Avengers? Does a small woman with a gun stand a chance among Earth's mightiest heroes? I'll answer that question and many more as we discuss and dissect one of Scarlett's most iconic roles!

StarWTF!? Episode 26: Malakili

Last week we discussed the Rancor, so naturally we needed to follow up with Malakili. You may know him as the big shirtless guy that cries after the Rancor's death in Return of the Jedi. But there is so much more to him than that!

We get down to the facts. What happened after the Rancor died? Which actor(s) played him? What's up with his choice of clothing? (We talk quite a bit about his fashion choices.)

Malakili was a male Human from the Core World of Corellia, a creature tamer and servant of the Hutt gangster Jabba Desilijic Tiure on Tatooine. Malakili took care of Jabba's rancor.
