Sorry, I always want theCHIVE and the DMA to be a Happy Escape. But I was so disappointed and sincerely hurt after viewing what is, to me, THE WORST Star Wars movie ever. I won’t spoil it for anybody who hasn’t seen it yet, so I’ll just post one comment I read online that perfectly sums up how I feel:
“If Star Wars was your childhood you’ll hate the new movie. If you’re new to Star Wars you’ll have no idea what’s going on and love the movie.”
Many of you will disagree with this, I understand. But I thought the film was laden with horrifically bad plot points and decisions Rian Johnson made that steered fans’ beloved Star Wars franchise into a pathetic and boring “new” direction. This is Disney’s Star Wars, not the fans’ anymore. That’s perfectly clear.
And for those who loved it, and believe me, I know many of you did, I ask this one simple question:
What are you looking forward to seeing in the following film? I can’t name one thing I’m excited about.
OK, rant over. Sorry for bitching on a Monday morning. I’m the worst.
