I've been out of the way for a while, mostly surviving, doing that whole living thing, a tale for another day, but I say that to let it be known that I've been out of the loop on a lot of entertainment, and now that I'm somewhat settled again I've finally had a chance to catch up on the 'new' Star Wars movies with a clearer mind and I have to ask...
What out of touch idiots are making those movies?
I faced my anxiety and went to a cozy theater back when the Force Awakens came out, and for the hype I was like "Yaaay!" but then when I realized I was recalling the main planet 'Tatooine' in spite of it being mentioned otherwise. When the Yaaay died down I definitely felt like I wasted my money. That's one among so many other things that are just lazy ideas ripped from the prior trilogy. I realized that the movies so far are really just beat-by-beat ripoffs of episodes 4 and 5 (with motes of episode 6 because of reasons I"ll mention) only with crappier characters and even more annoying, out of place 'cute' critters to appeal to kids, miraculously worse editing than movies made decades ago and like episodes 1, 2, and 3, far too much 'calling back' to the original trilogy.. Don't do that, Star Wars movies. It isn't necessary.. I'm sure the folks running things on that sinking ship of a franchise have a plan to build up so much shameless sameness in these other movies is so that they can save their minimal creativity for a final push and actually put forth a new IDEA in episode 9 and act like it's some kind of dramatic twist planned for the trilogy the whole time.. Calling it now that that's how it will play out.
And then there's Solo:A Star Wars Story... Even Donald Glover couldn't save that shit-show.
Too much hype... Star Wars!
For too much of a let down... Blue milk from a rubbery teat...
