The Last Jedi - Tumblr strikes backIt's nothing like Empire... like.... at all, we promise

Discussion in 'Multimedia' started by CowReserach Inc., Jul 23, 2017.

  1. Two philosophies are at play in disney's star wars department

    The first, which we have widely discussed, is the "pander everything and anything to the tumblr demographic and thus gain the viewership and custom of each and every race, gender, and sexual preference they claim to represent, and actively shit on our established fanbase and FFFUCKING WHITE MAAAAALES in general since clearly this is the best way to make non white males love us!" philosophy that PR/marketing types and media hipsters in general are obsessed with since its hot shit in pampered affluent media land

    The second is....well....

    so...yeah. pandering to the fanboys, in a desperate effort to reel them back in/keep them from fleeing by using popular things from previous films

    Combined they form a zombie franchise that is actively cancerous in a way the twilight (fuck me I miss the days when that shit was the worst thing out there...such an innocent era) could only have dreamed of

  2. I was watching an examination of Mark Waid's actions against the comic Diversity and Comics is putting out, and it talked about how there's a contract people employed by Disney have to sign. It talks about public relations and dealing with customers, and I couldn't help but think how it would screw over Kennedy and the rest of her ilk running Star Wars. With them being so aggressive and combative against any consumer complaints, it just seems like it's a PR nightmare waiting to happen.

  3. This mess makes me wish something more serious than the wage-fixing scandal would come out related to Star Wars so it'd kick Disney and LucasFilms in their fucking balls and force them to get their shit together and clean up house.

  4. Lucas must be doing a happy dance right now that he's officially not the worst thing to happen to the Star Wars franchise anymore. Also gratz Disney that's some seriously EA tier franchise killing you've got going on there.

  5. Looks like they want to make reference of something Darth Maul did do in The Clone Wars show.
    But that breaks continuity given current canon says Maul's crime syndicate was disbanded before the Empire came to power and in Rebels, he was in hiding. I guess Solo will establish when this movie takes place in the franchise's timeline.

  6. Lucas already brought him back years ago in Clone Wars. They're actually following Lucas' storylines in this case.

  7. Wrong. He was killed in Rebels, after having been a hermit for years. Disney can't even get their own continuity right FFS.

  8. I know it sounds stupid, but I am probably going to go see Solo: A Star Wars movie simply from sheer morbid curiosity and all the monkeyfuck that went behind the scenes much like Ghostbusters 2016.

  9. I still think that is line with it. I haven't seen Rebels but my impression was it was set only a couple of years before A New Hope, Solo seems to be depicting an 18 or 20 year-old Han Solo which would place it a decade prior.

  10. I'm planning on seeing Solo with my dad a week after it comes out. As turbulent as the development has been, I think it looks alright, and I doubt that the movie will have a dumber moment than Carrie Poppins and Rose stopping Finn from saving his friends.

    At the least, I'm not expecting a masterpiece, but I'll have an open mind about it.

  11. Oh HelloGreedo... I could rant about that prick and what he represents for hours.
    Him and all the other "Fans" who shit on the Prequels for a decade and a half before turning around and jerking themselves raw over Disney's mass produced slop purely because "That childhood raping monster Lucas is gone!". In J.J we Trust!
    For added :autism: he's also one of those "Release the Original Cut of the Original Trilogy because the films were ruined by Lucas's changes" guy's too.

  12. It's even worse since I believe one book set after Return of the Jedi had Leia sense what is implied to be Maul so uh....whoops!

  14. hahahaha holy shit that spoiler is fucking true?
    They should have CGed up a young Bea Arthur so we could find out that the Cantina singing bartender was a crime lord in her youth.

  17. IMDb ratings got nuked and the new reviews are saying "don't believe the haters" and related stuff.

  18. Meh. Who cares about a number anyway? Even then, people can vote multiple times for both IMDb and the Audience Score on RT, without even having to see the movie. I’d sooner trust CinemaScore.
    I’ll just see it myself when it comes out. I just know for certain it’s not going to be as awful as the Prequels.
