Flogging a Dead Force

‘The 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special is the worst piece of Star Was trash in history!’ The Acolyte: ‘Hold my beer.’ 

It really is that bad. It took four decades for Disney to turn a $4,000,000,000 franchise into compostable garbage, but they managed to pull it off at last.

I got through the first episode. Second. Nope. Seemed so silly. And the actors were unlikeable. What a waste of Midi-Chlorians..assuming they have them.

Love the reference to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Bill.

I just wish I could get a copy of Star Wars where Hans Solo shoots first without all the crap that was added when the original trilogy was remixed. Oops I mean remastered. I shudder to think of what a wokeified version of The Fifth Element might look like.

Yeah, I’m guessing he got too many views and realized he and struck reaction content gold.

Wow. It’s amazing what content can be produced by people who don’t hate Star wars and its fans

agree w/Bill… Bye bye Disney/Star Wars. “So long and thanks for all the fish.” (nyoice Hitch-hiker’s Guide reference). To continue w/Hitch-hiker guide theme … 1st … “Don’t Panic”, failure is part of learning. As for the void/crater left by the woke-mob-bombs, recall that: nature abhors a vacuum; so I expect others to fill it, sooner … or later.

When I was a kid, on rare occasions on summertime weekends my dad would pop a batch of popcorn, put it in a paper grocery bag, load us in the family car and take us to the drive-in that was only 1 mile up the road from the house to see a movie. I can remember him asking the person taking the money at the gate “Is this a good one or one that the critics raved about?”. That always stuck with me over the years and has turned out to be a real eye-opener as to how movies are… Read more »

I use Rotten Tomatos in reverse, if the critics love it I know it’s woke, I go by the audience score.

Exactly – High audience score + low critics = awesome

Steve is right in that Disney just doesn’t want to tell stories like they used to do. But I’m somewhat in disagreement as to why. I don’t think that it can be boiled down to “they don’t want to.” When you build a company…no, scratch that. When you trans-form a company like Disney into a cultural Marxist propaganda machine, where only like-minded people are hired based upon what’s between their legs and the color of their skin, then you end up with a group of untalented people running the ship. Not only do the people at Disney not want to… Read more »

Very well said. I will never support Disney due to their evil nasty agenda!
