Its got absolutely nothing to do with anything whatsoever, especially movies.
His comment isn’t directed at you but there is an awful underbelly of fandom that is that bad.I just don't want to be beaten over the head with social commentary in a Star Wars movie and be told I have to like it or else I'm a terrible person. That's what Rian Johnson's movie felt like.
But that’s not what JJ is saying or addressing. His comments are pretty measured and are very specically refering to a portion of fandom that doesn’t like the inclusion of women or different race characters into Star Wars, period. Not about how they are written or portrayed, these people are upset because they see diversity in and of itself as problematic. He’s not saying if you don’t like the character of Rey you are a misogynist or a racist if you don’t like Finn as wtitten, that’s an entirely separate. He’s pointing out some people don’t want any women or racial diversity in Star Wars.What a load of ****.
Does everything need to be politicized?
TLJ was hated because it was poorly written. It's the same nonsense that they tried with the Ghostbusters reboot. It was hated because it was a piece of **** movie and had nothing to do with the cast and everything to do with the script.
Making broad claims against people that they are sexist, racist, bigoted, homophobic or otherwise because they didn't like a movie is pure unfiltered bull****.
Are there racist, sexist and the like who have an agenda to try and politicize films, sure but to boldly claim that everyone who is critical of them is the same as those people needs to stop being so self-righteous and maybe take a creative writing course to learn how storytelling works.
I am so sick and ****ing tired of this nonsense being touted as being worthy of praise.
God forbid someone has a mind of their own and can think for themselves. Attacking your critics because they bring up valid points and accusing them of being misogynist is just plain wrong. If we can't even have an honest discussion about a ****ing movie without pointing fingers then it's no wonder politics are such a mess.
End of rant.
Anyone see any good movies lately?
I don’t know how involved you are with Star Wars social media but I have read some pretty vile comments thrown at people like Kelly Marie Tran that was about her ethnicity and not her character. I wish it were infinitesimal but I’m afraid it’s not.Of course there are people who don't want that but it must be an infinitesimal portion of the fanbase and yet they keep going on about it.
