The Luke Skywalker we meet in Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not the hero that fans grew to know and love in the original trilog. Even Mark Hamill has some harsh thoughts about how the optimistic rebellion hero and Jedi master turned into a cranky, despondent hermit.

One Last Jedi scene, in particular, seemed to illustrate how far Luke had fallen, and how few fucks he had left to give. While Rey was following him around Ahch-To, Luke knelt down before a gross creature known as a thala-siren, drew close to its four upsettingly human-like breasts, applied pressure to a teat, and filled up a container with frothy, raw, green milk. Then, he gulped the presumably still warm milk down with relish, making deliberate eye contact with Rey.

It’s a gross moment, that’s for sure. When we first met Luke back in A New Hope, he was an innocent farmboy who drank blue milk with his aunt and uncle. It was something a civilized human being would do, and there appeared to be some sort of refrigeration involved.

The times, they are a-changin'.

In The Last Jedi, though, he’s not loving served (presumably) pasteurized blue milk by his dear Aunt Beru. He’s walking over to a chill-as-hell thala-siren, grabbing a nipple, and going to town, aggressively pounding the beverage.

Is this NSFW? I honestly don't know.

Here’s the thing, though: As weird as this scene is, it’s not even close to the grossest thing we’ve seen Luke do on screen. To start with, even though his behavior was strange, people can drink raw cow milk, though it’s advised against as there can be bacteria that the pasteurization process would otherwise eliminate. But, this movie also contains a scene where the Force allows somebody to survive the vacuum of space, so raw milk probably isn’t a big deal for Luke.

However gross the green milk scene is, it pales in comparison to a moment in The Empire Strikes Back when Luke’s entire-ass body gets shoved into the gory body cavity of a freshly dead tauntaun.

The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide, states that the native Hoth species are repomammilian herbivores. They give birth to live young, and according to the book, “mothers are able to regurgitate a form of milk from their crops if necessary” to feed their babies. Male tauntauns also have this “milk,” but they use it to spit when they’re annoyed.

So, if milk is the thing we’re worried about, there’s almost certainly vile tauntaun milk swarming around Luke when he’s inside of the slain tauntaun’s belly (it’s unknown if Han’s mount was a male or female, but it doesn’t matter since they both had milk). Not to mention that there’s also entrails and blood and all sorts of horrifying innards all up in Luke’s business as well.

Granted, Luke didn’t choose to crawl inside of a dead tauntaun. Han made that decision for him, since he thought the residual warmth was the only way to keep Luke alive through a cold Hoth night. But, if Luke remembers any of that experience despite his grievous wounds and potential frostbite, then it probably changed him. Once you’ve literally been in the belly of the beast, what’s the harm in chugging green milk straight from the four-breasted source?

The Last Jedi is currently in theaters.

There are many lists on the internet that rank the greatest fight scenes, or the most impressive stunts pulled off by living human beings. This list is not like any of those. The following items listed below are, with some room for debate, the most influential stunts and action sequences in cinema, the ones that raised the bar and define what action movies looks like today.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s terrific second season hit Amazon on December 5, but if you’re anything like me you’ve already binged through all ten new episodes and now you’re desperately waiting for Season 3. If you’re wondering when the show will return we’ve got some good news (and some bad news too).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been out for less than a week, but one of the world’s top Smash players is already offering a (preliminary) tier list. Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios, who dominated Smash Bros. Wii U tournaments, recently offered up a ranking of the new Ultimate roster in a Twitch stream (via EventHubs).

A mythical new weapon has come to the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale in the form of the Infinity Blade from the video game series of the same name, and it just made one place on the map the most trafficked location of all.

Following up on a Monday teaser, Epic Games introduced a sword called the Infinity Blade to Fortnite Season 7 and it’s so much more than another pickaxe like some players thought. The Fortnite version 7.01 patch notes outline everything to know about this new weapon, and it’s unlike anything else we’ve seen before in the game. In fact, the closest thing to the Infinity Blade is the Infinity Gauntlet that transformed players into Thanos for the Infinity War crossover in April. (Both items are classified as “Mythic.”)

Something happened to the survivors in the six years between Rick’s “death” and Judith saving Magna’s group on The Walking Dead Season 9, and as a result, the communities are divided. Michonne’s not exactly welcomed at the Hilltop with open arms, but could the introduction of the Whisperers and a major death in the midseason finale be what brings everyone back together?
