I just had an epiphany a few hours ago. The whole thing is bland dog sh*t. How did I not see it sooner?

I don't know.  This is really shocking to me.  For years and years, you have been singing the praises of George Lucas right here on this very forum.  I cannot fathom how you... how you could turn... to the dark side.

True. I wish there was a way of changing all my praise for Lucas to disdain.

I don't see why it has to be one of the two extremes.  Some of it is great, some of it isn't.  Mostly the stuff where Lucas worked with other talented people is the best.  The more control he gained, the worse it got.  Having other people to keep you in check isn't necessarily a bad thing.

They can make all the sequels and Star Wars movies they want, and that's fine, because I honestly don't have any interest in seeing them. I loved Episode 4. A simple story, bad guys to root for the heroes defeating. Then with episode 5, we get the beginnings of a soap opera, and a weakening of the characters. Suddenly that kiss on the lips for good luck becomes a bit creepy, when you realize Luke and Leia are brother and sister. How does someone as in tune with the force, not recognize his own daughter when they meet face to face, unless Vader considers killing his child as a disciplinary action? Man, that's strict! Episode six, the Ewoks! Thank goodness they all died, when the explosion of the second Death Star subjected their planet to a nuclear winter. The prequels cause me to loose increasing interest in the series, and then to Episode 7, where we learn that Solo and Leia are as awful a married couple, as they are parents to a single whinny brat who has grandaddy issues. Episode 8 shows us that Luke is as big a loser as his sister and Han Solo were. So, what am I supposed to be rooting for here? A failed republic, that couldn't stop the Empire from reforming? Enjoy Starwars folks, it is no longer for me.
Episode 9: We learn that Luke and Annakin accomplished nothing when they failed to kill the Emperor, so they really were a couple of losers. But at last the Luke's nephew redeems his family linage, by sacrificing his life, so wonder-Rey can save the galaxy from the patriarchy by killing her grandfather, with her cheerleader squad of force ghosts there to cheer her on! At last the galaxy can be a truly woke place where at last Porgs and Ewoks can get married and have their little Pogoks to bring joy to the galaxy.
