Check Out the Year’s Coolest ‘Star Wars’-Themed Holiday Lights Show

One look around your neighborhood reveals it’s most definitely that time of year again. Time for corny window dressings, pretty holiday lights and… Star Wars music? One dude chose to celebrate the holiday season by not only creating a wicked display of lights, but he also synched those lights up to a bunch of Star Wars music for what we think is one heckuva cool show.

Check it out below…

Here’s what YouTuber Tom BetGeorge had to say about his setup:

“I sequenced the show using LOR, mixed the music/sound effects with Digital Performer, and filmed it using a 35′ lift at 3am :) This is now my second year decorating.

This One Celebrity Topped Google’s Annual List of Most Searched Terms

We lost a lot of talented people in 2014, but few deaths had quite the same impact as the untimely passing of comedian Robin Williams. When Williams committed suicide this past August, it felt as though the whole world went into a state of mourning – and that’s not just hyperbole. Google has released its annual Year in Search results, and Williams is at the top of the list. In fact, he was the only celebrity in its top 10.

What’s really interesting about Williams topping the chart is that the results weren’t just related to his passing. Google reports that there was also an uptick in searches related to mental health and depression topics after Williams’ death, too – maybe the one silver lining in the dark cloud surrounding his demise.

Watch: Liam Neeson Delivers a Holiday Beatdown with This Great ‘Taken 3′ Video

If you’re finding yourself not quite feeling the holiday vibe yet, maybe watching Liam Neeson crack some skulls to a punk-rock version of The 12 Days of Christmas while promoting Taken 3 will inspire your Yuletide spirit.

Fox released this new promotional video titled The 12 Skills of Christmas to promote Neeson’s third turn as all around badass Bryan Mills. We’re not sure how far they’ll be able to take this franchise (will Mills battle an alien army next — cause we’d watch that), but this new clip does a nice job showcasing all the ways Neeson is gonna kick the crap out of men much younger than him in the new film. Here’s the plot breakdown, just in case you couldn’t piece it together from all the mayhem in the video.

Justin Chang’s Top 10 Films of 2014

Assembling a year-end top-10 list has always been a rather personal, self-indulgent ritual, a way of disguising a whimsical ranking of favorites as a carefully curated announcement of one’s personal taste. At the risk of making things even more solipsistic than usual, let me begin by noting that the fraught relationship between artists and critics provided 2014 with one of its most compelling… »
