    I'd agree with most of that, except that I'd peg Poe as more short sighted than foolish and Phasma sucks as a character.

    Also, did you seriously just compare Leia to Hitler.

    Clearly you have a very sore mangina. Curious bit of irony that men who complain about female characters and corporate executives seem to be the most fragile of character and their own sense of masculinity. Somehow I feel confidant enough in my own sense of being a white, heterosexual man that I don't feel threatened by a shift towards female empowerment in pop culture. More power to 'em.

    ^^^typical SJW tactic, dont like my opinion so you attack me personally and try to restrict my free speech, if you notice you started with the personal attacks a few pages ago, you are the Mangina, and if you want to go personal here we go...you have issues, perhaps you ride the bicycle to deal with your addictive personality or anger issues, maybe from being oppressed by women so to cope you crusade for feminism and look for people who would dare to disagree and attack them. Maybe your bike riding addiction has left you with ED due to pressure on your perineum and you attack any male you think might be able to do more than just cuddle. I find those who talk about how straight they are are actually trying to cope with other issues, whatever the reason I dont care. your anger and attitude betray you and what you are. I have stated my opinion based on how bad the story is and my theory why, you choose to attack me and name call. seriously if you disagree thats your right, but you are the one who began with personal attacks, really myofb and stop cyberstalking me

    Well I'm a white male feminist socialist and I detested the political messages in this film, heavy handed, ultimately empty and have no place in Star Wars.
    Totally agree with this youtube video.

    I stand by what I said in the original post 100%, I opted to edit it because Im trying to stop this endless circle. The tinfoil comment precede any reply to you. The conspiracy theories that everyone is in cahoots to defend or somehow make everyone like TLJ is asinine. As as far as rude, check your posts and all the other consistent trolling - just like you’ve managed to continue with your reply to an obvious attempt to stop some of it.

    Again, even though I edited it - I completely stand by my post. You might need to change your tinfoil now.

    For those that keep posting about how much money TLJ made and therefore it’s a good film,heroin and drugs are bad but make billions as well I could list a whole slew of things that are bad and dumb but make billions because of dumb founded people who buy them and think they’re good.Its all about what people like.

    taken alone at face value not eating porgs is a joke but all together it adds up, i also dont get the relatively young age of military officers, its unrealistic compared to reality, but then im supposed to believe an 8-10 y/o anakin skywalker flew into space and destroyed a space station, Iron Eagle is more realistic than that.
    What is it that's adding up for you to say that TLJ actually has a deliberate vegetarian message? I really do not understand this criticism at all.

    I mean...how far do we want to go down this rabbit hole? Personally, I'm not sure what you're referring to when you talk about "heavy handed," and "political" messages.

    As far as the video....well, she has thoughts. Some I agree with, others I don't. I think it's important to contextualize that her operational definition of feminism here is fairly narrow (feminism, like any academic field, has a diverse range of opinions. This creator seems to have chosen a definition with the lowest common denominator in simply stating "gender equality." This is not to invalidate her argument per se, only to point out that we shouldn't take her position as definitively representative of "feminism" at large).

    It all boils down to unrealistic "SW" story telling. Weird dialog. Humor, that reminds me of Indiana Jones. Powers that are achieved beyond practical training (as we have grown to know).

    And not to sound prejudice...

    but...Why do all the men have the "less serious" dialog or the "humor" dialog or always seem to have to be rescued (physically or emotionally) by the opposite sex. And the women are powerful, heroic, and seem to be the higher, smarter, unbeatable and saviors?

    I can see how some, men and women can sense this (even my wife questioned). Man or woman, doesn't matter. But it seems pushed.

    If y'all spent half as much time examining gender roles from the female perspective as some of you folks are doing with the men, you might have a better appreciation of the feminist perspective when it comes to media.

    I jokingly played into your first meme, and humorously accused you of being JJ in a manner that made it absolutely clear that it was a joke. Basically a mild act of self-deprecation on my part. But instead of being gracious and accepting that olive branch, you decided on more tasteless memes and a very passive aggressive all-capped/bolded/underlined piece of text buried in a multi point list. What I posted afterwards...it's called giving you a taste of your medicine, JD.

    And your "don't feed the trolls" edit tag? Don't act like trying to get one last insult in is an attempt at trying to end anything. You could have just edited it and left no note. It's not required. But you just have to try and get one last dig....

    And I still think it's precious how naive you are. Still got that bridge for sale, Kiddo.......

    All this trash talk in this thread.... about masculinity..... about heterosexuality.... about who is manlier....

    You guys do realize you are all having an argument in a movie discussion thread.... a thread about a MOVIE.... and the movie is STAR WARS, right?
    Ask 90% of the women in the world and they would agree that the “macho” and “measuring penis size” arguments happening here, are almost laughable.... I mean, seriously! You are in a STAR WARS thread!

    (And so am I, thus my man card is probably void as well )

    20161119-skywalkerranch8400-h_2016_thr-1.jpgthe Lucasfilm executive team, i really dont care if the team is mostly female or not, I present this as more evidence of an "agenda" rather than just entertainment, interestingly marvel also owned by disney has had some issues with politicizing comics http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/20/ev...has-been-axed/
    I think we're just starving for good entertainment, The original SW was that, good clean fun, no silly controversy, good guys win, good guy gets the girl, redemption revenge good versus evil. The consumer is tired of identity politics and finger wagging know it alls telling them what to think, most are tired of the need to feature every race religion and sexual orientation in the movies. I believe they need an all new writing team who need to realize that on some level the biggest stars they have left are BB8, R2D2, 3PO and the Falcon not people, did the originals cater to adolescent boys? perhaps but that made it a success and contrary to what those who watch The Big Bang Theory think,, most girls have little interest in sci-fi, there are great things in the reboot, I like the first order stormtrooper armor, the falcons new antennae, BB8 is pretty cool, Poe Finn and Rey are solid Characters, but whoever killed Solo pooped the bed

    This thread is more entertaining and better written than the 2 1/2 hour cinematic skid mark that is the TLJ.

    As much as I'm not a fan of how these new movies are being made, we have to, as star wars fans, recognize their history.

    Even in '77, Lucas was criticised for creating a Galaxy that was predominantly white and male.

    And then when the prequels hit, the first criticism (even more prominent than jar jar hatred) was racism.

    That is something the new story group has to atone for.

    We can call them sjw's all we want, but they don't have much of a choice in that

    London in 1977 was very diverse.
