ARCHIVE Day 29: Is Star Wars a Dead Brand?

Reminder: This movie sucks!


If you think that’s even remotely true, than you will pay the price for your lack of vision.

So, for the two of you out there in the world who don’t know because you live in Cambodia, the most recent Star Wars film, the Last Jedi, has been the most polarizing film in the entire series (yes, even more so than the prequels). Some loved it, some hated it, and if you were in between and thought it was just okay, you were wrong.

Oh god, it’s Ghostbusters all over again.

But if I can be honest, I myself really didn’t like the Last Jedi. Now, if you liked it, that’s fine. We’re all safe to think and act how we want to here. But honestly, after this movie, I’m kinda burned out on Star Wars. I have no intention to see Solo, and I’ll really have to push myself to go see Episode 9. Really, that one’s the last chance for me. If I don’t like it, I think I’ll just be done with Star Wars.

My personal thoughts aside, if you look up the Last Jedi on YouTube, you’ll find a lot of videos claiming that ‘Star Wars is Dead’, or ‘The Last Jedi Ruined Star Wars’, so on and so on.

Let’s be real here, okay idiots who make this crap? Star Wars isn’t dead, and it won’t be killed so easily. If it were that easy, it would’ve died after the Prequels.

There’s a reason Disney spent 4.2 Billion dollars to acquire Lucasfilm. And that reason, to put it quite bluntly, is capitalism. Because of all the Disney songs they’ve ever written, their favorite is still ‘We’re in the Money’.

Star Wars will still make them money. It always will. People are stupid, and they love to think that these movies will recreate the magic of their childhood. They won’t, but they’ll still keep going to see them in hopes that they will. And because of that, Disney will just keep giving us more and more Star Wars of rising and falling quality.

Fact is, we’ll probably get many more polarizing Star Wars movies in the future. All because our fan-base is a bunch of whiny little babies who don’t actually know what they want from Star Wars.

I’ll admit, I wanted something new from the franchise, and Last Jedi gave me something new. It wasn’t something I liked, but it was something new. And isn’t that what we want from our favorite stories? To evolve and change?

Or am I just crazy for not wanting the same crap over and over?
