Tough room!

That's the way to handle it friend. Now kick back with a bucket of popcorn.

No one really cares? Is that why these movies have made billions?


As I already stated Disney just came out and said they are losing money off of the franchise. They turned Star Wars into fast food. Its disposable garbage. Last Jedi did worse than Force Awakens, Solo did worse than Last Jedi. They've canceled a lot of Star Wars spin offs. They can't sell new trilogy merchandise.

No one cares about SW anymore

So they have to talk about stuff like " diversity".

your regurgitating VS talking points and SJW
propaganda.



( Remember that feminist agenda folks! )




You assholes are pathetic.


Hey! Don't link my comment...i didn't say anything about " feminist agenda"!
You took my comments out of context.


You're always guilty of sumthang. Just admit it.


I don't mind if you quote something I DIDNT say, but I object most strongly to quoting something I would NEVER SAY!

" feminist agenda" .
Sheesh. How insulting!

the forced diversity

Anyone using that phrase instantly loses all credibility. Diversity exists. Period. If you're of the mindset that it has to be justified in some way, the problem is you. I always found it absurd that there were only two people of color playing humans in the original trilogy. What's more absurd is that people are railing against the new movies since they've begun to remedy that.

If a movie incorporating people of color counts as a negative for the movie, you're the problem.


Who said that me? I don't remember. No one is against diversity. Though Disney and Hollywood are forcing diversity. The casting is based on sex, race and sexual preference first, then they try to write the characters. Which they don't really care about which is why no one really cares about them. Have you not been paying attention lately?

Did you ever think after decades of straight white men dominating movies behind and in front of the camera, it may be time to recognise that there is a lot more diversity in the world? Given the uproar over Rey (a woman) and Finn (a black person) by "fans", it's definitely time to address this. If that's "forcing diversity", good. It's needed.


There is ' uproar ' over Rey because she is clearly a character who is there to push Kathleen ' The force is female! ' Kennedys feminist agenda.This is why Rey requires no training,and is able to beat up evrey man she sees,fly and fix the Falcon better than Han Solo,and defeat a powerful force user who has had YEARS of training in lightsaber combat.

It gets even worse in The Last Jedi.Pretty much every resistance fighter seems to be a woman ( Remember that feminist agenda folks! ) and the men are shown to be either idiots or evil.Poe gets slapped in the face by Leia ( Because hey,violence against women BAD,violence against men GOOD.Just ask Brie Larson ) and the fat asian chick sexually assaults Finn after nearly killing him by ramming into his speeder at the climax.

The only really good thing to look forward to in TROS is a new John Williams score.



Just say you hate women, less for you to type.

I've already got HTTYD3, so I'm satisfied as far as trilogy finale scores go.

Ahhhh wonderful. A nice long thread all about John and his amazing Star Wars music. Can't wait to absorb myself in Williams chat.

I'll just open it up and.......... oh dear god.

There's hate all right, but it's coming from one side; a side that refuses to listen to anybody with an opinion that is not theirs, that dismisses any facts that are antithetical to their own, that dumps critical thinking for buzz terms and "wins" against those who they toss around idiot labels like "homophobe", "racist", "sexist", "bigot", etc. And that uses regressive thinking wherein they reduce people to their sex, to their skin color, to their age, etc.

This is worse than anything any member has been banned for from this board and it's becoming more pervasive and ruining what was a good place. Every day it's like coming here and taking a big fat shit on the board. And it's disgusting. It'd take that crazy Canadian pony guy over this any day.

Like political discussion, this needs to be banned from FSM.

Agreed. As a man, it’s embarrassing to see so many other men so insecure in their masculinity that they rail against women and people of color in prominent roles in movies.

Keep digging, friend. It’s really not hard to be on the right side of history.


ANYWAY — really looking forward to this score although I suspect that line from Williams’ brother was a bit of hyperbole.

They're simply projecting their own hate and discrimination onto others and proclaiming the moral high ground at the same time.

Keep yelling against the storm, mate. Or better yet - don’t bother with the movie and leave the discussion to us.
