I had star wars sheets when I was kid. ET pajamas. subscription to Odyssey. astronaut wallpaper. all my legos were of the space variety. I was into it.
but I have some questions about the latest star wars installation (most, if not all, of which have been asked elsewhere, I’m sure):
do wookies not really mind it if, for no apparent reason, you jump up and decapitate your own men? you’d think they’d at least take a step back and let out a quizzical yawp.
if you were about to deliver a dramatic retort to the bad guy, wouldnt something like “I’m for freedom” be a tad better than “I’m for democracy” ? or alternatively, go all the way and shout something like “I’m for bicameral legislation!”
did they not have ultrasound technology? and if you were pregnant with twins, wouldnt you look at least 6 months pregnant (with one)?
did the filmmakers not realize how terrible samuel jackson was? did they tell him to deliver each and every one of his lines in such a way as to make a college freshman who signed up for a bit part in south pacific just because the girls talked him into it look like a pro? ugh. he didnt die soon enough.
with a film and franchise so clearly intended for the senses and sensibilities of pre-teens, why include enough on-camera violence to score a PG-13 rating? or perhaps it was for those of us who were pre-teens in the 80s, and have been so captivated by our happy memories of zooming around the living room with our x-wings, that we stopped caring if the movies are terrible or not?
