More “you didn’t like the last Jedi because you’re racist and/or stupid”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been killed off by PC culture. No really, people actually think that

quote:

By now you’re probably aware of the disparity between the critics’ take on Star Wars: The Last Jedi (92 per cent fresh as of this morning) and the audience score (54 per cent) on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.


quote:

Some of the fanboy outrage evident in the audience reviews is an inevitable consequence of writer/director Rian Johnson trying to do something different and not simply re-writing, or re-booting, The Empire Strikes Back.


quote:

Bad enough that it has a prominent black character in it, and the fact that The Last Jedi basically belongs to Rey, a woman. But now there’s a new cast member who’s a Vietnamese-American (Karry Marie Tran who plays Rose Tico) too. Enough already! What happened to the good old days when it was about white blokes, the token woman donned a bikini to give us all a thrill, and the token black guy didn’t appear until the second movie and knew his place by remaining in a minor role? No wonder people are throwing their toys out of their prams and pledging to boycott future films. The irony in Ukippers and Trumpkins getting all flustered about PC narratives in a film about a battle against space fascists is precious.

It's not worth engaging these people. The problem is that journalism has become the career choice for passionate, stupid people so they get the largest microphone to blast their nonsense.

This is all so confusing... the movies are set in a different galaxy, a long time ago... racial construct as we know it on Earth in 2017 AD is irrelevant to their galaxy.

It’s like watching an experiment where we marvel in the human body functioning in daily life without a fully functioning mind...

First off, why is there something wrong with that?
and no one cares that Rey is a woman, or that there isn't some hottie in a bikini somewhere. The movie wasnt' good.

quote:

and the token black guy didn’t appear until the second movie and knew his place by remaining in a minor role


this token black guy betrayed his friend, then went help save him, then blew up the frickin Death Star. Nice minor role, and everyone on the planet loves him. No one cares that he was black. He was a great character.


People are stupid I swear. You can't claim this stupid crap for this movie's terrible audience ratings. WHy didn't the ratings dip for TFA if so many of us hate minorities and diversity?

If I could get 54% of people to agree with me on anything...Hey, that’s pretty good

They think “this isn’t real. Nazis are spamming RT.”

Everyone here is on the exact opposite side of the coin.

Same principle offense, different sides of the spectrum.

Except that those people have won. They are in control.

Except that the director and producer are cut from the same cloth and those types of people are the main producers of popular culture now.

re: More “you didn’t like the last Jedi because you’re racist and/or stupid”
Look, I loved the movie, and have argued with a lot of people on this board to that point, but the SJW angle from both sides is ridiculous.

The journalist (and I use that term lightly) who wrote that article should not have a job. I didn’t even read it but if you’re first instinct is to belittle disagreement with shouting “racism!!” then you are everything I have hated about MSM for years now.

Let’s just get back to arguing whether or not you enjoyed watching Luke drink green titty milk!

I think the backlash from the people writing off the fans who didn't like the movie will be far worse than the backlash from those who didn't enjoy it.

No, as these people who loved it sit down and pay attention and see it more

They’re going to hate the movie

There’s such a good faith effort and desire to love any star wars movie because it’s Star Wars. But poo smells like poo

Y’see, I’m one of those rotters who identify with the liberal left, think diversity is a good thing and enjoy movies with casts and characters that don’t look as if they could have come straight out of Ukip central casting or the Trump White House.

quote:

My 10-year-old, seeing all the films with a fresh set of eyes, and experiencing the thrill I did when the first trilogy came out, opined that he thought the new ones were better precisely because of the diversity.

Could you imagine how miserable it would be to find yourself in a social situation where you had to interact with someone like this?

These are the heroes from Rogue One, and that still got a high score from the Audience on Rotten Tomatoes

re: More “you didn’t like the last Jedi because you’re racist and/or stupid”
i'm kind of torn because progressives are so annoying even to normal liberals, but at the same time they have such a low emotional IQ and are so socially awkward that I look good by comparison.

then again they only hang out with other progs to avoid peer rejection...so how much good are they doing for me anyway?

I was looking through r/starwars and some tard was claiming it was better than Empire Strikes Back.

I will say that the white hispanic dude whose name I can't remember is so frail that it bothered me. he looks like he's 100 lbs soaking wet

what's her face is tiny and she looks like she'd crush his pelvis.
