Damn, I thought Black Panther was going to be the only movie that I was going to write a post about. I guess I was wrong.
As The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro and James Barrett have noted, the most charitable description for Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is a mediocre piece of nostalgia porn with only a few inspired moments from an assortment of lifeless characters that fell off an SJW assembly line.
The way I heard this movie explained in the opening week was that it was just SJW rhetoric in a Star Wars skin – sickening is it not?
Director J.J. Abrams feels otherwise, however, and believes that backlash against the film stemmed from males being “threatened” by strong females.
Fuckin’ what? “Males are being ‘threatened’ by strong females.” Are you serious Abrams? Did this guy forget about Ripley? When I hear “strong female” in relation to movies, she is the first name to come up – even knowing there are loads others out there. Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games*, Milla Jovovich in literally any of her action roles, Angelina Jolie in any of her action roles, ScarJo in any of her action roles (including The MCU). Atomic Blonde (where Charlize Theron played a lesbian which you think would make the SJWs happy right?) and Ghost In The Shell (Fuck off with your SJW rhetoric, it was a great movie.)
“Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find almost anything you want to in Star Wars. If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in Star Wars,” Abrams continued.
So what kind of villain fits the bill of “female who is threatening to males” Abrams?
“You can probably look at the first movie that George [Lucas] did [Star Wars: A New Hope] and say that Leia was too outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with anything can find the problem. The internet seems to be made for that,” he said.
Right, another strong woman role – Carrie fuckin’ Fisher as one of the most powerful figures in a galaxy far, far, away.
All of this just means that Abrams will not heed any of the warnings or criticism put forward by fans, as he promises to continue butchering “Star Wars” with the vision of Disney.
To be honest, he should stick to Star Trek which is the only thing he has not fucked up. Amazingly enough.
“There’s a lot that I would like to say about it,” Abrams said in reference to the next episode, “but I feel like it’s a little early to be having the ‘Episode IX’ conversation. … I will say that the story of Rey and Poe and Finn and Kylo Ren — and if you look, there are three men and one woman, to those that are complaining that there are too many women in Star Wars — their story continues in a way that I couldn’t be more excited about and cannot wait for people to see.”
Three men and one woman, and some how you are saying that people complain about there being too many women in Star Wars. Prove it. (Everything else in that paragraph was fluff, and not needing.)
Except two movies have traversed now, and with the exception of Kylo Renn, none of the characters have shown any level of depth or intrigue. Good luck with that, JJ.
Closing on a sane note. Stay classy Daily Wire, stay classy.
