2016 has claimed yet another amazing life. This one has both fangirls and fanboys in shock as many of us lost our first childhood crush in Carrie Fisher. It was a horrendous day that made a bad year worse. I never had the chance to meet Carrie Fisher, despite having the opportunity, but I have heard that amazing was simply not a good enough word to describe her and that, while she has passed, her light will shine through the ages. I can't really talk about the sadness I have, this has been a heavy and disheartening year to say the least. But I can, hopefully, educate some people onto movies she's been in outside of the ones we know and, even more hopefully, do her justice through the movies she's been in with a marathon.Minutes in a day: 1,440Shampoo (1975): is a satirical, sexual drama based in a 24 hour time period around the time that Richard Nixon was elected President of the United States of America and the Watergate scandal. It was her first movie, a decently convoluted movie that had some good scenes and she privileged such people as Goldie Hawn, Warren Beatty and Julie Christie with her young acting ability. Minutes Remaining: 1,330Star Wars (1977): Later retitled "A New Hope" after it made more money than anything in existence and got two sequels, a slough of products and spinoffs and made people popular for life, Star Wars shot Fisher up into the upper echelon of Nerd-dom and fame. Alongside Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, James Earl Jones, Peter Cushing and Sir Alec Guiness, Carrie Fisher cemented herself in history with the start of the biggest franchise in the history of the world. Minutes Remaining: 1,209The Blue Brothers (1980): She's only in two scenes in the movie, but I love this movie so much and think it deserves to be on the list. Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues (John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd respectively) are essentially on the run from the police for the entirety of the movie, but it's all for a good reason. They're on a mission from God to get their band back together guys... also, to gather money to save the orphanage that they grew up in. Among the endless musicians in this movie, you get John Candy, Kathleen Freeman and Frank Oz with your Fisher. Her scenes have her as a jilted ex lover of Jakes, hellbent on killing him throughout the movie. Minutes Remaining: 1,077The Burbs (1989): Corey Feldman, Tom Hanks and Bruce Dern act alongside Fisher in this super great dark comedy about a suburban neighbourhood in rural America being turned on its head by a weird new family moving in. Minutes Remaining: 976When Harry met Sally... (1989): Meg Ryan, Bruno Kirby and Billy Crystal this time star in a movie about two people that find one another and, through no fault of their own, fall in love as the movie progresses. A great movie with a very iconic scene of Meg Ryan... doing her thing let's say. Minutes Remaining: 880Soapdish (1991): Oh the people in this movie about the goings on behind the scenes of a Soap Opera in the early 90's. A fantastic comedy that makes light of a lot of things and gives all the actors and actresses the opportunity to overact their asses off. Among Fisher you get Kevin Kline, Sally Field, a young Robert Downey Jr., Cathy Moriarty, Elizabeth Shue, Whoopi Goldberg and Terry Hatcher, to only name some. Minutes Remaining: 787Scream 3 (2000): While not a main character in this movie, I wanted to show the range she had in her acting and her choices. This slasher horror movie directed by Wes Craven revisits Sidney Prescotts journey through life as she's repeatedly defying death at the hands of many different people. While I don't think this is the best in the series by any stretch (the first one revitalized slashers for us all), this movie is really fun and I think people would enjoy it. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Live Schreiber, Lance Henriksen, Patrick Dempsey and about twenty other people got to work with her too. Minutes Remaining: 670Heartbreakers (2001): is a fun movie starring Jennifer Love-Hewiit, Sigourney Weaver, Ray Liotta, Jason Lee and maybe my favourite actor of all time in Gene Hackman about a mother-daughter con artist duo who set out for the score of their lives, but are doing their best to not fall in love first. A really funny movie with some good scenes. Minutes Remaining: 548Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001): The fifth in the Jay and Silent Bob series, this movie was not my favourite. But I know that Kevin Smith, the creator of the characters, loves Star Wars and Carrie Fisher more than life itself. So, as a nod to him as well as her, I put this movie in. It's a story that has the comedic stoner duo on a quest of sorts, to get money for a movie created based on a comic book with characters of their likeness. A lot of in jokes and some funny scenes wrap around the two, who are probably the worst part of the movie in all honesty. But don't let my opinion of the movie sway you, watch it and form your own opinion, or at least try to get all of the cameos in the movie. I got about 1,500, including Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Mark Hamill, Will Ferrell, Alli Larter, Chris Rock, Judd Nelson and James Van Der Been himself. Minutes Remaining: 444Fanboys (2009): A feel good movie about four friends who go on a trip to steal the plans, I mean reel to reel of "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" from Skywalker ranch. It has some pretty sad parts, but all in all a very fun movie starring Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel, Sam Huntington (who looks far too much like Paul Dano to me), Danny McBride and many more. Minutes Remaining: 354Maps to the Stars (2014): This weird satirical drama is directed by David Cronenberg, so you should be in for a weird ride, if not a fun one. I'm kidding, this movie is far from fun. It's a drama after all, and involves the attempted revival of a child actor and a lot of crazy stuff happens. Cronenberg doesn't disappoint in this movie at all, but it's not for the faint of heart at all guys. Minutes Remaining: 242 Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015): The last big movie she was in while still alive (She's in a documentary about herself and her mother Debbie Reynolds too though), this movie has her revisit her role as Princess Leia Organa in an attempt to once again save the universe, this time from The First Order, Empire revivalists. While not an earth shattering movie, it has broken so many records for money that it did something right. It brought everyones favourites back for (at least) one last hurrah. Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac join the ranks of those enshrined in carbonate for all time. Minutes Remaining: 106 I made a point to talk about all the people she affected through the years in the movies she's been in because I don't know if I've seen this much of an outcry from all of Hollywood at one time (Maybe Alan Rickman, also this year dammit). I wanted to showcase all of the people that she touched and how they, by their own admission, we better off for knowing her. Even into her waning years Carrie Fisher seemed like a lioness in a world of sheep. I don't mean that in a way to negatively reflect her or anyone that she knew or worked with, merely that her ability to stand out in the shoes of her mother and the amazing people she worked with made her literally one of a kind. To me that means the world.Don't fret though, it has been rumoured that Carrie Fisher had finished all of her parts for the upcoming Episode VIII, so we will get to see her on the big screen at least one more time! I know it's a minuscule gain for such a monumental loss, but I imagine the tears shed when they show the dedication to her will let her know that she will be missed for all time. Rest in Peace as you join the Force itself Carrie Fisher.
