The thing that’s most annoying about the “Rey phenomenon” (aka “Operation Squirrelface”) is that she’s not fulfilling any actual wishes of girls or women. She’s specifically designed to engineer and instill new wishes into a henceforth non-existent female fanbase.
And the committee responsible for her inception is so clumsy and obvious that they lacked any ideas of how to create this Herowoman for a New Millenium without making her an omnipotently overpowered Mary Sue avatar. It’s facile, lazy, dramatically bereft, and leaves nothing of emotional impact to take away from the movie.
Does laughing my ass off at a post count as saying something about it?
