Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/Star Wars ]



On the Sith planet Exegol, Palpatine has been maintained alive and reveals to Kylo Ren his secret armada of Star Destroyers. He orders Kylo to go and kill Rey. In the meanwhile, the rebels learn about Palpatine's presence on Exegol. Rey, Poe, Finn and their friends leave for Pasaana where Luke's search for Exegol had ended. They meet Lando Calrissian who tells them they need a Sith wayfinder to find Exegol. They then discover, in the remains of a Jedi hunter ship, a Sith dagger on which C-3PO reads the location of the wayfinder. Kylo's men however take the dagger. Since C-3PO's programming forbids him to translate Sith languages, they go to Kijimi to get a hacker read the droid's memory and learn that the wayfinder is on the wreck of the Deathstar on Endor's moon Kef Bir. Rey and her friends infiltrate Kylo's Star Destroyer and recover the dagger; she also confronts Kylo who reveals that she's Palpatine's granddaughter. On Kef Bir, she fails to obtain the wayfinder, confronts Kylo again and eventually turns him away from the Dark Side (with the influence of Leia' dying spirit and a memory of his father, Solo, Kylo becomes Ben Solo again). She leaves the moon with Kylo's ship (which also contains a wayfinder) and exiles herself to Ahch-To after having had a vision of herself on Palpatine's throne. The spirit of Luke convinces her to confront Palpatine, and she leaves for Exegol with Luke's X-Wing. Rey then sends the Resistance a message with the coordinates of Exegol and she confronts Palpatine.

Hidden Figures

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Katherine, Mary and Dorothy are three black women working for NASA in 1961 as human computers. Their unit is segregated by skin color and sex. Thanks to her skills in analytical geometry, Katherine becomes the first woman on the Space Task Group and devises a way to compute the Mercury capsule's re-entry. Mary is assigned to the capsule's heat shield team and aspires to become an engineer. She obtains a court order allowing her to take evening classes in an all-white university. Dorothy acts as supervisor for the colored computers unit, and is denied getting the title officially. When she learns that human computers will be made obsolete by the new IBM computer, she steals a Fortran book from the library's white section, teaches herself and the other computers how to program, and learns how to operate the IBM device. When NASA realizes the need for a team of programmers, Dorothy accepts to supervise the Programming Department on the condition that her team is transferred with her. Thanks to the three protagonists, John Glenn's mission is a success.

Holmes confie à ses francs-tireurs le soin de résoudre le meurtre de Gurney, un chef de gang des docks, tué par une flèche empoisonnée. Les « Mad Dogs » suspectent le clan des Chinois, et les Chinois suspectent le seul herboriste chinois qui connait le poison utilisé. Les francs-tireurs rencontrent May, la fille chinoise adoptive d'un prêtre qui milite pour que la Grande Bretagne cesse le commerce de l'opium avec la Chine. Voyant que l'herboriste est accusé, May avoue aux francs-tireurs que c'est elle qui a tué Gurney, ce dernier ayant causé la mort de ses parents en Chine à cause du trafic d'opium. Finalement la population chinoise se soulève contre les deux gangs du quartier et May retourne en Chine avec le prêtre.
