Please, let’s not start throwing accusations out there.

While I know you’re joking, your opinion that it’s objective is influenced by your own personal feelings, so…

Don’t even bother with Frinks he is a thin skinned idiot who attacks anybody with a different opinion. But as soon as somebody makes a light hearted joke about badly made star wars figures or autism(look at some of his older comments from the ‘‘random image’’ board) he loses his shit. Just let the snarky Jew enjoy his echo chamber in peace.

Oh the hell no!

They ought to just call it The Kenobi Movie or TKM for short.

The secret filming title ought to be Club Obi Wan or C.O.W.

I should point out Anakin and other prequel characters appear in Disney theme parks, although Mr. Binks is noticeably absent. There is still a moderate level of prequel merchandising even though the new films dominate the toy lines and Episode III was 12 years ago.

Since I wasn’t around when TFA came out (and to possibly re-rail this thread a bit), I mostly enjoyed TFA, rehashes and all (and I say that as someone who’s very critical of ROTJ for its rehashiness).

It was a necessary palate cleanser after the dumpster fires of the prequels, introduced two protagonists I already have a lot of interest and investment in (Rey and Poe) and an antagonist that is compelling and frightening due to how unstable and unsure of himself he is (Kylo), and set the stage for something truly fresh and unique to come after.

It’s not perfect, of course. For one, I hate Starkiller Base and think the movie should have ended with Rey imprisoned on Kylo’s Star Destroyer, with the rescue attempt happening amid a battle between the New Republic fleet (which would have been decimated) and the First Order as they staged a surprise orbital bombardment of the New Republic capitol rather than on a snow planet that for some reason is a hyperspace Death Star. For two, the actual politics of the Resistance/Republic/First Order were woefully underestablished (or not established at all). For three, I thought Finn was poorly handled - a defecting stormtrooper shouldn’t be a bumbling comic relief character.

But overall? Better than any of the prequels, and better than ROTJ.

What you say are dumpster fires (ok episode 1 and 2 are bad lol) I enjoy more than this new family friendly disney mainstream film made entirely just for the box office

Are you implying the prequels and OT are indie art films? Lucas likes making money too!

Rehash all the things lol

If there was any standalone that was an acceptable use for established characters, this would be it - it’s what everyone wanted since the whole standalone concept was announced.

How many Star Wars related films has Disney made or have in production?
1…2…3…4…5…6…am I missing any?

Not a single new story? That’s what corporations do. They buy existing IP. They scavenger it down to the very bone. All your $$s at a time until there is nothing left but you jerking around to your R2 figurine screaming “OMG DISNEY. STAR WARS. DISNEY. STAR WARS. I LOVE DISNEY I LOVE STAR WARS OMG OMG OMG!”

That is hardly the ethos the original three films aspired to be.

Thanks for that mental image. Just when the batteries in my neuralyzer are dead!

After the tragedy in Charlottesville I’m convinced we are in the beginnings of a second Holocaust. The GOP won’t be defeated in 2018, but even more radicalized with Trump supporters than even now. Who can stand up to Trump in the elections? The Dems are impotent and if they even get their act together they could be outlawed by an even more authoritarian government by a paranoid president. White supremacists are marching in the streets, and are going to just get stronger in the coming months. Everyone that is not them are going to die. We live in a country where one week feels like one year. By the end of four years the victims of this current are going to be either murdered or worn to complete mental exhaustion. We are reaching the point where this country chooses to be a country that only rich, white, straight, men of God only. If you don’t meet all four of these categories, the white supremacists say you can go fuck yourself. All of this is a lost cause. America is dead forever; all there is left is to scream in despair and pray that sweet death ends your suffering.

How dare you silence me like that.

President Trump is an authoritarian white supremacist. He has enboldened nazism unseen since the days of Hitler. They are shouting “JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US” just a few days ago in the streets. One out of three Americans has pledged undying loyalty to him, and it will not be going down anytime soon. You think I am exaggerating when I say we are on the verge of a second Holocaust? Anything you would have deemed impossible only a year ago is now a near-certainty. Donald Trump will still be president in 2018. It’s possible that he could win reelection in 2020 if he can hold onto the rust belt and keep enough people disenfranchised. This is not normal. I was right all along about everything so far.

Nobody is silencing you. Dial back the drama, dude.

You assholes can bury you heads in the sand all you want, but facts are facts. We are in a second Holocaust. Donald trump is president for life. His legacy will endure for decades. This country will let white supremacy win. Future generations of Americans will find themselves more isolated, more impoverished, and more oppressed than they are even today. What our country is going through has never happened, EVER, in our nation’s history.

Are you calling me an asshole? Most unwise.

What about the rest of us? 😉

Yeah, but I have to be here and read this stuff. 😉
