    Here’s one:

    - People complaining about remakes, reboots, or nostalgia are “bandwagoners” for a cheap and most often inaccurate narrative about bad films and TV show whether they be professional...

    My argument in favor of Rey being related to someone important from previous films in TROS is that LFL was clearly planning the film to be a “grand finale” for the storylines from the Lucas films -...

    As embarrassing as that is… the fact they reacted by pulling the merch and tweet still shows a greater savviness with their base than other companies.

    I’ll be honest and say some of my pessimism comes from how accepting and non-character a bunch of Hollywood types seem about TLJ screwing over Rey, implying they gave into the same issue Johnson had....

    You’re 100% correct that the family tie wouldn’t guarantee Rey being written well, but it’s not the audience’s subconscious I’m talking about here - I'm talking about guys like Rian Johnson himself,...

    And she wasn’t well written because once Johnson decided she wasn’t a Skywalker, he and LFL stopped caring about her, just like how many other people definitely *did* stop caring based off that as...

    My thing is that I think both the marginalization of Finn, the push for the toxic romance, and even just writing Rey badly… all comes from people in LFL, Hollywood, and in the larger fandom not being...
  8. Poll: Effect on audience/creator interest of no new Skywalker hero in the ST?

    How much, if at all, should the decisions to not have the main hero of the ST be a Skywalker or Solo effect audiences? (Or if you want to think of it this way, how much it led to Ben Solo’s heroic...

    Id say the way half the audience drifted away before the ST was over, Reys popularity taking a nosedive, and so many people backing up Kylo for no reason beyond his heritage or demographic would...

    For Rey by herself, you’re right - in fact, one of the reasons I’d argue TFA is clearly a good Star Wars film is because they made sure she was a thoroughly characterized main character… and made her...

    Actually, it’s not that they have to capitulate, but instead acknowledge and maneuver around biases - primarily because, at the end of the day this is a pop-culture franchise, where satisfying the...

    Oh, I have zero problem with the branding. If anything, Riddler should be the guy who makes a member out of his symbol in every incarnation.

    I just fear (though not terribly) that the...

    Well, it’s a historically accurate movie based off an actual event, so no shit you can predict this movie’s ending. It happened.

    Did they make sure to try and mix in the real contemporary...

    Yep. But, as pointed out, every third Trilogy idea he went over inevitably focused it on the Skywalker family again - because of course you would, as there’s not really any reason to have a “Part...

    That part was actually consistent… and like some other TLJ-adjacent material, far better than the film it was connected to.

    The part that was inconsistent was when the First Order went from being...

    The first trailer was a bit better, though this one did an excellent job hitting the visuals, and selling me on the action, Catwoman, and Penguin.

    My only worry personally is how well a...

    The “why” for me is pretty simple; there was a period where Chuck Dixon and Gail Simone wrote it well enough that I found it nuanced, believable, and infectiously enjoyable.

    Since everyone keeps whatever accents they want for this one, Damon doesn’t stand out in a bad way at all - and he perfectly nails the character’s temperament and (very myopic) POV in a time period...

    …Or if it gets retconned by an actual movie (see: how TLJ treated Finn and Rey’s characterization, the First Order’s entire set-up, Hux’s characterization, etc., and how TROS in turn treated TLJ).

    Well, once one of your main characters is a Skywalker, it’s going to be part of the story. Advertisements don’t really mean shit; once people saw Kylo was Ben Solo, it made the film another entry in...

    Just got back from it. Maybe the cleverest twist on the old Rahsomon idea I’ve seen - the perspectives remain different… but not the story’s facts. The most important question is rather firmly...

    The Force Awakens doesn’t cloak racism and sexism in hypocritical bullshit like TLJ does. It doesn’t have to deal with TLJ’s bullshit like TROS does. It’s got more ambition than Solo.

    And Finn’s...

    Because then Kylo The Shitstain will either take over her story (as LFL clearly wanted on some level) or he and the family story must be damned for no good reason. And because most people love the...
