Giving up on Star Wars

Recommended Posts

I saw the latest Star Wars movie and I'm glad I only spent money on a matinee showing of it. It was a dumb film - possibly the dumbest Star Wars movie ever.

I don't know what the deal is, but my overall observation is Hollywood/Disney has managed to emasculate Star Wars. I'm tired of culturally iconic stuff being hijacked by modern "girl power" p.c. crap.

From a psychological point of view, even some of the scenes were symbolically anti-male in nature like with huge, long ventral cannons under Star Destroyers being attacked. It's ridiculous. I don't know ... maybe sometimes a cannon is just a cannon.

It's simply NOT like the Star Wars movies I grew up loving as a boy - which had a more "masculine" and serious sense ... and a plot rooted in classical literary themes. I wanted to be "Red 5" one day.

The new movie has a script and pace that's more like something my mom would enjoy on P.B.S. The way the characters argue with each other with a frenetic pace made me think a woman (or beta male) must have written the script.

I no longer want to be "Red 5" standing by anymore.

I predict the new Star Wars slogan will soon be: "May the feeling be with you."

That's all.

I thought The Last Jedi was so bad it didn't deserve a follow-up. I will not pay to see this last one. I might watch it "free" when it comes to Disney+ (which I'm not paying for, either).

Agreed on the "PC" version of Star Wars. I was a long-time fan of the originals. I should say, the "original" trilogy, before Lucas went nuts and started editing and re-editing them. I wish I could still find a copy of the ORIGINAL trilogy, as it was shown in the theaters (the FIRST time). Mine were on VHS, and long-since worn out.  :(

I have no interest in this latest one either. Disney ruined their trilogy so badly that most don't even consider it canon.

On the plus side, the SW Stories movies are pretty good.

After 'The Force Awakens' (which I almost walked out of but decided against it since I had already paid for it) I quit.  If I want to watch Sesame Street, then I will do so at home for free.

I stopped when they added that stupid Jar Jar character. It's a toy franchise,  and you're right it's become PC. The story's dead.

What's next? RuPaul as the hero(ine)?

If you look-up that soy boy director J.J. Abrams and feminist "the force is female" producer Kathleen Kennedy ... one look at them and you'll think "well ... that figures."

I think whoever chose them should be hung.

As an aside, many of the Star Wars Fan Films on YouTube are very well done! Check out a few of them if you get the chance.  :)
