Off to see Stars Wars today

Postby Masato » Fri Dec 22, 2017 4:31 pm

Officially on holidays :D :D :D

Have a bit of work before the New Year but that's OK, plus got a ton of work lined up for the whole month of January, which I'm stoked about. Sometimes I get nervous on holidays because I'm not making any money but I know I'll be busy as soon as its over so I can relax in peace.

Off to see Star Wars with the kids in about an hour, I'm pumped though my expectations are low. Not making the mistake of taking it too seriously this time, lol I am hearing polarized reviews either people are bitching or they loved it

Also installing a lock on my bedroom door today, lol should be a good break :D

Let me save you the trouble, its fucking terrible and now that Disney has taken over its gone full SJW tard

An asian woman and black male saving the day using that kinda technology? lol yeah im sure she could fly a spaceship while struggling to rear park a Camry and that his forward planning skills go beyond getting his GED over the course of his 25 to life sentence just in the nick of time for the parole board.

Just got back.

Was grimacing in the theater quite a few times, bored at other times. Then again I am big on story and have little patience for action.

Left the theater thinking man that was pretty bad, but now I'm coming home & recalling things, and maybe liked it better than I thought. Some interesting story ideas.


[spoiler]
What was up with the fucking catholic nuns? lol seriously that seemed a bit obvious if any parallels to real world were to be made, had nothing to do with the story at all, actually made it worse yet somehow got injected into the film

And FFS, did they get some funding from PETA? lol 2 distinct animal rights plugs in 1 film

PS: some serious moral relativism going down in this film

I predict this to be a coming theme for Disney/Fox

I loved Star Wars growing up. I mean, loved it. Had all the movies on VHS, a bunch of toys, comics, t-shirts, posters, god damn my bed sheets said Star Wars.

Now, the thought of seeing this latest one sounds like gouging my own eyes out. I am done with Disney's Corporate Culture Wars, thanks.

Star Wars died with the prequels. Time to let sleeping dogs lie. Disney will take care of that in short order I'm sure.

They will still milk billions off it

No way man, the first Star Wars (A New Hope) was damn near Story perfection. Based on 'The Hero's Journey' as outlined by Joseph Campbell, a simple and proper MYTH story with all the right elements to trigger our subconscious archetypes

A beautiful story, simple.

SIMPLE.

The more I think about this new one the more I realize what a mess that script is. There are like 4 or 5 different subplots all happening at the same time, flashbacks and backstory, its a total jumble of ideas. A New Hope had ONE plot; the journey of Luke. Empire Strikes back had 2; Luke's and Han/Leia, which both came together in the end. Return of the Jedi worked its way up to 3.

Why this modern need to make their scripts so fucking complex? Haven't they realized by now that a simple story resonates with people much deeper?
