We’re watching The Empire Strikes Back on its 40th anniversary with voice of Darth Maul in The Clone Wars, Sam Witwer and superfan Rahul Kohli (The Haunting of Bly Manor, iZombie), joining IGN hosts Clint Gage and Brian Altano. In that same IGN user poll, our fans (rather unsurprisingly) rated The Empire Strikes Back as their #1 favorite Star Wars movie with a landslide 51 percent of the 25,000 votes.
While IGN won’t be able to show the full movies in the live stream watch-along, we will be showing select clips throughout the live Q&A with our special guests. If you want the full WFH Theater experience, sync up the full movies on your devices and watch with us when we press "play" together!

Lighting can completely change the way you perceive a scene. Part of the magic of filmmaking is making the audience think that what they’re looking at is real when it’s completely fabricated. By lighting the scene a certain way, we can make viewers think it’s a different time of day, in a different location, or warmer or colder than it actually is. Today on 4 Minute Film School, we’re going to be showing you how to change the temperature of a scene using only lighting.
In this video, Matt from the A-Team shows us two different lighting setups in the same scene, one that makes the scene look warm, and one that makes it look cold. First, he thinks about the actual temperature of the shooting location. If it’s on location, and not in a studio, there might be ways to use the actual environment to help light the scene. Second, he determines what color of lighting he needs to create the look he’s going for. Does he need orange light, to create a warm look? Or, blue light to create a cold look? Lastly, he thinks about the quality of the light and whether it makes sense for the scene. For instance, hard light doesn’t make as much sense in a cold setting as it does in a warm setting.
The main aspects addressed in this video are light color and light quality. Light color refers to the color you’re using to light the scene. In this case we’re working with the kelvin scale, with orange light being lower on the scale, and blue light being higher on the scale. Light quality refers to how soft or hard a light is. The quality of light can help create an environment for the actors that makes sense based on where the scene is taking place.
Overall, there are many ways we can use light to enhance the experience for our viewers. Using color and light shaping to influence the perceived temperature of a shot is just one way you can use cinematography to help tell a story. These tricks will help you expand the range of your storytelling ability as a filmmaker. There’s no limit to the worlds you can create with the right light.

We’re watching Revenge of the Sith with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order star Cameron Monaghan and Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Ashley Eckstein, joining IGN hosts Clint Gage and Max Scoville! The final film in the Star Wars prequel trilogy turns 15 on Tuesday, and its age has only increased your love of it; an IGN user poll conducted in January saw our fans rank Revenge of the Sith as your #2 favorite Star Wars movie.
While IGN won’t be able to show the full movies in the live stream watch-along, we will be showing select clips throughout the live Q&A with our special guests. If you want the full WFH Theater experience, sync up the full movies on your devices and watch with us when we press "play" together!

There are big movies, and then there are EPICS. These are the films that pack in scope, scale and spectacle, creating an experience at the movies that feels truly massive. So enormous, we couldn’t even fit 10 movies on the list.
We decided to break the list down by real world history, looking from the days of classical antiquity all the way up to present day. Ancient Chinese dynasties, through Napoleon in 19th Century Russia, all the way to the Vietnam War.
And to clarify, this list doesn’t include Fantasy Epics so there’s no Lord of the Rings here. That’s a different list. We’re looking at what makes a historical epic truly huge. In the vein of Cleopatra and Ben Hur, Hero and Curse of the Golden Flower, medieval fare like Ivan the Terrible and Kingdom of Heaven. 19th century epics like How the West was Won, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and 20th century war epics like 1917, or The Thin Red Line.
So here are the Top 5 Historical Epics of All Time!
5 – Red Cliff, Pts 1 & 2 – John Woo
4 – Ran – Akira Kurosawa
3 – War and Peace – Sergei Bondarchuk
2 – Lawrence of Arabia – David Lean
1 – Apocalypse Now – Francis Ford Coppola
