Han Solo, Chewbacca settle feud on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Two feuding costars you thought you’d never hear about - Harrison Ford and Chewbacca – addressed their “rift” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week.

Ford was plugging his new flick, “Cowboys & Aliens,” when a certain furry “Star Wars” co-star stopped by his dressing room to say hello. What ensued wouldn’t be out of place on a “Real Housewives” reunion special.

Friday's Top Five: Rock 'n' roll movies

Amy Winehouse’s passing is a reminder that so many music industry legends leave us too soon. For sad and mysterious reasons, it seems that many can’t make it past their 27th birthday.

Luckily, their stories are still with us in their music and, for some, also on film.

A few movies on this week’s list include rock bio pics. These have a pretty standard formula: The movies introduce the subjects before they were celebrities, and follow them as they rocket to fame and fortune.  In many cases, their lives either spiral out of control or result in some sort of tragedy (i.e. a first class ticket to rehab, an organ transplant candidacy, or an abusive relationship).

What are you favorite Rock n’ Rollas?  Here’s mine:

'The Ides of March' trailer released

We haven't seen many memorable political thrillers in the last few years, but, from the looks of "The Ides of March" trailer, we might finally have a drama we can get behind.

The film, starring George Clooney and Ryan Gosling, is based on Beau Willimon’s 2008 play "Farragut North," which is loosely based on Howard Dean’s 2004 political campaign. "March" revolves around Clooney's character, governor-turned-presidential candidate Mike Morris, and Gosling, who plays Morris' idealistic communications guru.

Academy favorites, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei and Paul Giamatti also appear in the flick.

Gaga judges 'SYTYCD'

Gaga judges 'SYTYCD'

Lady Gaga's turn as a "So You Think You Can Dance" judge on Wednesday night did not disappoint. In case you weren't sure she was there, she towered over the other judges in a pair of impossibly high heels when it came time for standing ovations.

I feel a little bad for "Chicago"/"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" director Rob Marshall. He did a great job critiquing the dancers, but he was completely overshadowed by Gaga.

On the whole, the guest judges this season, other than Carmen Electra, have really impressed me. Aside from the occasional off-color aside, Gaga proved to be a perfectly competent judge, and is undoubtedly a fan of the show, having used season 4's Mark as a featured dancer on her tour.
