nor am I. Like I said, I don’t know who is calling the shots. But the boardroom is either making the decisions or hired those that are, so they are somewhat responsible.

Yes but there’s a massive difference between hiring filmmakers and demanding what the filmmakers do.

I agree.

Just saw this on the net.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kURlp17F1wo

it was composed by by a 12 year old girl

amazing.

Here is violin concerto she wrote

wow.

Thanks for making me feel even more incompetent. This is fantastic.

Yeah, playing piano and violin is overkill.

In case you didn’t realize it, she also composes.

Yeah. The brat. Makes my compositions sound like they were done by a normal 12 year old. Okay, well maybe they do sound like that.

I could be wrong, but she sounds like she could sing too. Listen to the notes she sings here.

I don’t care if you don’t like TLJ, that’s fine. But when you blame Disney suits for making the movie bad, you just sound like a conspiracy theorist.

I blame whomever made the decisions for TLJ, but I have no idea exactly who made what decisions. If the suits didn’t make the decisions, fine. Of course they either made the decisions themselves or hired the people that are making the decisions, so they are in some form or another party responsible.

Whomever was behind the decision making, I don’t like TLJ. I think I have the right to not like it.

Because we totally said you didn’t have the right.

But it was made quite clear my opinions weren’t welcome in the TLJ threads.

Warb, people complain about TLJ on this forum everyday.

I’m just saying how when I complained the reaction felt. Which is why I stopped posting in the TLJ threads.

and speaking Fukushima, I think fracking(if it causes earthquakes) and nuclear power plants are not a good combination.

^ Lots of things are bad combinations but nobody is suggesting those two will be combined.

I’m in favour of Nuclear as a stop-gap at least but not Fracking. If Fracking companies are prepared to pay for any and all damages incurred then fine

How do you pay for loss of life in earthquakes caused by fracking?

but (in the UK at least) they have arranged it so they are immune from prosecution. Drill under my house. House falls in hole. Tough sh*t.

If that is so, that is absolutely ridiculous.

I hate modern Disney.

I think Disney knows. As a child I got excited by the castle opening of their movies. Classic Disney was great. If Disney was still held in such regard, it would have been proud to start TFA and TLJ with its Disney castle in lieu of the necessarily omitted Fox fanfare.

Disney often makes movies that they don’t use the Disney logo for. They didn’t even use it for Who Framed Roger Rabbit? but used their Touchstone Pictures brand instead.

But if there were warm fuzzy feelings about Disney, using their logo to replace the Fox fanfare would have been perfect.

I don’t think the Disney logo sets the right mood for Star Wars.
For me, the Fox logo and fanfare are a part of the films and the Disney logo and music just doesn’t have that feel. It’s great for Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty, but wouldn’t work for Star Wars.

Agreed.

Why do you find specifically Disney’s treatment of star wars so bad compared to before? We didn’t have the oot then either, so yes that’s bad but it’s not something Disney put in place.

But it is something Disney has continued. They have had the rights to Star Wars for multiple years and we still don’t have a release of the oot.

I’ll go with when they acquired Marvel. That’s when they got incredibly obnoxious to me, but I suppose they’ve been evil for longer than that.

I place the birth of modern Disney after the end of the Disney Renaissance, when they stopped making traditionally animated films and started producing pop tarts like Miley Cyrus.

That’s at about the same time, isn’t it? She was in the late 2000s, wasn’t she?

I think the Marvel acquisition happened a couple years after her big debut, but yeah, essentially around the same time.

Weird, almost like the same time you guys became adults. But there definitely isn’t a connection there.

Disney shoving revolting products into my face every which way I turn isn’t connected with me becoming an adult.

I don’t see how what they’re doing now is much different than what they’ve always done.

EDIT: I also hate how they’ve handled Star Wars and I hate how they handle their classic movies and I hate how they’re remaking all of their animated features into boring CGI and live-action films.

The handling of Star Wars lies in LFL, not Disney. I’m not sure what they’ve done to their classic movies? Remaking their animated features isn’t entirely new (101 Dalmatians, Jungle Book), and CGI is pretty much the only way to tackle some of those stories.

Basically, who gives a fuck.

You can say “who gives a fuck” about anything.

exactly, I find it very annoy when people do that.
