    Well, to be fair it was a toyline before it became a movie.

    And btw, yes there already is SW theme stuff in Disney World and Disneyland, but that's just another example of Disney using SW as a cash horse/cow/mule/brahmin.

    Anyway, a SW-themed bar might be nice. Modeled after that bar scene in A New Hope. You could LARP and get wasted at the same time.

    Scapler in that case you'd like the Scum and Villiany bar in L.A.

    Ok, so they already basically did that too, d'oh. Oh well. Looks like a pretty nice place. Wouldn't want to hurl while wearing a stormtrooper helmet though.

    Was there? I remember them trying to sell merch of literally everything that appeared in the first three films. Even the characters that didn't have names.

    Okay, but it still wasn't as bad as it is now.
    There were still more quality products such as the games.

    It seems like the interest for most of the 'new toys' is pretty low anyway, particularly toy lines about Rose and the like.

    The cash whoring of Star Wars is not new at all. it has always been this blatant.

    Quick Rewrite.
    The big battle that cripples the Resistance happens at the very begining, as a desperate assault by the First Order. The battle leaves the Resistance main ship crippled and Leia unconcious. Holdo takes power and immediately orders for the entire fleet to disperse as the First Order can only detect the bigger ship and tey must be in no shape to give chase to so many ships going in different locations. They are given orders to reconvene later on on the Salt planet but only after they are sure they have lost the first order. This set up would put different combinations of characters in separate locations to each have their own little arc, maybe Kylo Ren acts upon his emotions and abandons the fleet to chase the ship his unconcious mother escaped on.

    I don't know why it would affect me as much as it did being that I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan, but that bit towards the end with Mark Hamill's reaction to Simon Pegg talking about how his character was a source of inspiration in the original movies left an incredibly bitter taste in my mouth. This really is like bad fanfiction come to life, killing off the old characters and using their carcasses to incubate a clutch of Mary Sues.

    It's pretty sad. Everything they accomplished in the OT was for nothing. They can't milk the original cast and crew anymore in the next trilogy at least.

    That part really hit hard. Mark Hamill really just seems like he wants everyone to enjoy the movies. Hearing Simon Pegg talking about how Luke Skywalker had such an impression on him must have been so hard since he knew that the Luke Skywalker Hamill and Pegg knew and loved is dead. But he just wants everyone to have fun, so he gives his best to be positive about the movie, as much as he could. It's really sad to see him this way.

    I know it's an overused trope to say "This franchise is deeeeeaaaaaaad", but it does feel like "killing" Star Wars, or at least what Star Wars used to be, was Rian Johnson's goal. By subverting every single aspect of what made the franchise so "magical" he actually did kill the old Star Wars.
    Which is a remarkable feat, given that the franchise is so huge and diverse in its tones and settings.

    Did you just hear that sound guys? That was Goerge Lucas, he reliefed since now he's not the worst person in Star Wars anymore.

    Rian Johnson has taken over.

    Even without that, as that 3 part video so eloquently puts together, the script is just terrible, full of rather blatant poor writing that you wonder why it's getting such a complete pass from people, specially when the Prequels got nitpicked to hell and back.

    Wanna hear someone break their arm jerking off to the fact they liked The Last Jedi?

    Quite a remarkable feat. Ruin Star Wars harder than George Lucas himself. Conglaturations Rian Johnson, you have finished a great franchise!
    But yeah, that video series you posted was quite remarkable in its scope, eloquence, and depth. Nothing to add there.
