Quote from: Helwyr on January 01, 2018, 01:42:19 amI didn't even bother going to watch it. The last one was awful, and I didn't expect any better from this one, and by all reports it was even worse. All the SJW (aka modern cultural Marxism) nonsense is just the fly on the turd. They could take out all the political propaganda/social engineering attempts and these movies would still be terrible. Rogue One was an OK film, otherwise better off just watching the originals.Every new Star Wars movie is going to suck. Nobody liked 1,2,3 and now 7,8. No matter what they are not going to please the die hards.

Oh no! Women, blacks and hispanics in 1 movie??!! It's the end of western decency!SW 4-5-6 had all of the above, and they were universally recognized being close to masterpieces, (Lando Calrissian was black and a great character)...in Japan, SW4 was greeted with long silences by the audience when the ending titles appeared, the highest form of respect in their culture.Do you realize what made them so loved? Yes they were advanced and well made, but so SW1-2-3...the fact is 4-5-6 were a simply a traditional and archetypal European fairy tale with standard roles, (including correct gender roles).....i.e. Leia was a real female and a PRINCESS...only in SW1-2-3 we have to learn that she was just not really a princess but an elected Councillor...and all the amendments to look like our modern failed political systems were pushed in one by one, female jedi etc.Quote from: Maejohl on January 02, 2018, 08:13:19 amI thought it was some light entertainment. Silly me for not spotting the deep social commentary ingrained within it. Yes, silly you... Neither entertainment (as it was bashed by most SW fans) nor light...every passionate story has always been used in a pedagogic way from the dawn of time....no exception now, the so called "light hearted" programs are always the ones with most followings and where your mental barriers are switched off and were whatever message they want to push on you you would more easily absorb it, especially if it is done methodically and for prolonged time.......A part of you might not accept it, but many gay people (the many that were not BORN that way) might well have grown up straight in a culture (and family) that was not constantly messing up roles..same can be said about people with depression, or taking drugs...if family and gender roles were sound, the ones of us that were born less full males or full females ( all of us have both in ourselves), the more sensitive males (and usually more intelligent and talented, who had a higher female nature to start with) would have still grown up straight if their male nature would have been nurtured in an ideal way...but in a feminist, male bashing, deviant society that presents sex and female body obsessively, this can be a problem. Same for many males that have given up having a sound and stable relation with a women...or to have any relation at all, too scared to reach out to what has become a sort of scary alien to many males.Instead of analyzing and trying to work on this, our society currently tries to brush it under the carpet with demagogic (and futile) campaigns that expect us to pretend that the abnormal is normal, exacerbating the drama rather than admitting it to exist in the first place, celebrating dysfunctional behavior instead of curing it.RegardsHG

When you think the most compelling thing about your movie is the color of your performers skin or the bits between their legs, it shouldn't be a surprise that your movie sucks balls and nobody wants to watch it.
LOL, Rotten Tomatoes became Fake News.1) Check each page, most have 0, 1/2 or 1 star, but the overall average is still 49%...is their calculator broken?https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/star_wars_the_last_jedi/reviews/?type=user&sort=2) Plus most 5 stars seems very short and similar in message and, as one smart guy noticed:Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)How come the 4 and 5 star reviews when you click on the name it comes up with page not found hmmmmmmhttps://www.rottentomatoes.com/user/id/977043430/Let me tell you Disney pulls their strings....sad...nothing to do with the great original Walt Disney.RegardsHG
We're talking about a movie that showed ship to ship missiles affected by gravity in the first three minutes...I'm pretty sure the only messaging they had was we don't give a fuk we know this is going to make money
