The terrible trio of Natasha ( Rene Russo ), Fearless Leader ( Robert DeNiro ) and Boris ( Jason Alexander ) are tied tightly or tightly tied by the terrific and talented Rocket J.

The Star Wars franchise and Robert DeNiro have a special place here at H.O.P.E. They were both really great, really original, and fun to watch. Then, in old age, they both started cashing in on their name and creating sequels/movies that are awful. Because of this dynamic, it is sometimes painful to bring their tepid choices to light...but in the end, our cause is more important than our misplaced feelings of nostalgia.

So Star Wars?

Ewan McGregor, who is about to star in the sixth and hopefully last Star Wars vehicle, had some pretty bad things to say about the last two. He called Episode II "unsatisfactory" and Episode I "disappointing and flat".


And Robert?

He is discussing doing a sequel to Taxi Driver. Yes, re-read that. This isn't DeNiro making a sequel to "Analyze This" for cheap laughs and a new boat. This is DeNiro deciding that while Taxi Driver may have ushered in a new age of American cinema, that now he needs to update where Travis Bickle is as an old man. For money.
