Lando: CRAZY-ASS WHITE BOY!
As visually stylish as it is graphically violent, this thriller directed by Luc Besson concerns Jaina, a 12-year-old girl living in Coruscant who has been exposed to the sordid side of life from an early age: her family lives in a slum and her smuggler father works for drug dealers, cutting and storing dope.
Jaina doesn’t much care for her parents, but she has a close bond with her four-year-old brother. One day, she returns from running an errand to discover that most of her family, including her brother, have been killed in a raid by corrupt Republican agents, led by the psychotic Plimsoll.
Jaina takes refuge in the apartment of her secretive neighbor, Boba, who takes her in with a certain reluctance. She discovers that Boba is a professional assassin, working for a Hutt, a mob kingpin based in the undercity. Wanting to avenge the death of her brother, Jaina makes a deal with Boba to become his protégée in exchange for work as a domestic servant, hoping to learn the hitman’s trade and take out the men who took her brother’s life.
However, an affection develops between Boba and Jaina that changes his outlook on his life and career.

Self-centered, avaricious playboy Lando Calrissian is informed that his long-estranged father has died. Expecting at least a portion of the elder Calrissian’s 3 million credit estate, Lando learns that all he’s inherited is his dad’s prize pruning shears and a 74-Z speederbike.
Discovering that the 3 million credits are being held in trust for an unidentified party, Lando heads to his home town to ascertain who that party is. It turns out that the beneficiary is Sullustan, Nien Nunb, the autistic- savant family friend. Able to memorize reams of trivia and add, subtract, multiply, and divide without a second’s hesitation, Nien is otherwise incapable of functioning as a normal Sullustan being.
Aghast that Nien is to receive his father’s entire legacy, Lando tries to cut a deal with Nien’s guardian. When this fails, Lando “borrows” Nien from the institution where he lives, hoping to use him as leverage to claim half the fortune.
During their subsequent inter-galactic odyssey, Lando is forced to accommodate Nien’s various autistic idiosyncrasies, not the least of which is his insistence on adhering to a rigid daily schedule: he must, for example, watch Galaxy Quiz and CSI: Coronet every day at the same time, no matter what.
On hitting the gambling paradise of Taris, Lando hopes to harness Nien’s finely-honed mathematical skills to win big at the gaming tables; but this exploitation compels Lando to reassess his own values, or lack thereof.

After being cut in half, Sith badass Darth Maul is confined to his tiny, sweltering courtyard apartment. To pass the time between visits from his nurse and his fashion model girlfriend Margaret, the binocular-wielding Maul stares through the rear window of his apartment at the goings-on in the other apartments around his courtyard.
As he watches his neighbors, he assigns them such roles and character names as ‘Jail Bait’, a professional dancer with a healthy social life or “Crazy Bitch”, a middle-aged woman who entertains nonexistent gentlemen callers.
Of particular interest is seemingly mild-mannered military man General Madine, who is saddled with a nagging, invalid wife. One afternoon, Madine pulls down his window shade, and his wife’s incessant bray comes to a sudden halt. Out of boredom, Maul casually concocts a scenario in which Madine has murdered his wife and disposed of the body in gruesome fashion. Trouble is, Maul’s musings just might happen to be the truth. A cracking, suspense-filled thriller directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
