I also disagree with how they handled Luke. I think they did a terrible job, but not for the reason you might think.
Who could forget The Gladiator? The violence. The driving vengeance. A crazy Roman emperor. The epic feel. And especially the

When you think of the pulp genre what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the streetwise detective
Remember when just having fun or being entertained was acceptable? In recent years, a strange myth has started going around that having fun is for kids and “immature” men. That once you’ve reached the arbitrary age of adulthood, you’re no longer allowed to indulge in entertainment for entertainment’s sake. That past a certain age, you’re no longer allowed to explore magical lands with knight and wizard or fly a ship into the endless universe to fight aliens and evil empires. Instead, every movie you watch, every show you binge, and every book you read has to have some extra meaning. They must be political or social commentary or parody. And if you dare to enjoy something with no strong underlying message, then it’s considered “juvenile” or “mindless.” This, of course, is a lie. People need time to de-stress, to take a break from reality, especially in times of turmoil. The era of pulp fiction reached its golden age during the
Well, we have to end apartheid for one. And slow down the nuclear arms race, stop terrorism and world hunger.
From Teen Titans, to Thundercats, to Marvel movies, and Star Wars…why do SJWs feel the need to turn everything into cringy comedies? There’s been an odd trend coming from left-wing showrunners, and that trend is to turn everything into a comedy. We’ve seen this several times, where a fully developed franchise is gutted of its depth and left with only comedy. Of course, there is a long list of genres that cover a long list of interests, but something all the greatest works have in common is balance. A good work may be decent enough to pass as worthwhile entertainment. A good action movie, for example, will have all the necessary gun battles, explosions, and megalomaniacs needed to keep its target audience engaged until the end. A good romance will have a handsome love interest and a relatively average main character with dreams of a better life and who’s interior beauty will become exterior beauty by the end. Both good.
A fan remake of The Last Jedi would be the greatest act of resistance against the tyranny of Disney. One
Inclusivity is one of the latest buzzwords ruining movies these days, not only story and character, but box office returns. The people in charge of the Star Wars franchise, for example, took their multi-billion-dollar investment and decided that the fanbase the Star Wars name had amassed over the decades were no longer their target audience. Their new target audience would be people who were either never interested in or had never heard of Star Wars. Why? Well, by adding a female Luke, a pansexual Lando, and a patented left-wing non-threatening black guy…their goal was to make the beloved titan of a franchise more “inclusive.” And three movies were all it took to tank Disney’s credibility. It sounds good to say your movie is “inclusive.” It makes you sound tolerant and understanding, which are all the rage these days. And as we continue to see these people try to make everything “empowering” and “accessible” it becomes clearer why many of these
