Seems the culture has ruined Star Wars too!

What say you, have you seen it?...I have not but I don't care if I know in advance that it sucks.
Seems Luke (Mark H.) hates it also.

I have a friend who does special effects for Hollywood movies. She has lots of (otherwise low-value) souvenirs from working on Pirates of the Caribbean and other movies. She tells me that it is standard operating procedure for producers to have complete houses built for themselves and bury the costs in their current movie project.
Surprise! Hollywood moguls are corrupt even beyond their sleazy use of power to gain sexual favors. Power corrupts and Disney execs have been corrupt for a long time.
Solution? I agree with Mike. Don't give them your money. At least they can't come steal it on pay day like the scumbags they support in the Dark Center.
I go with the DVD model as usually within 6 months of release you can get it on Ebay for 6-7 bucks, which is the ticket price level. . Now, I would have gone to see Rogue One, if I had actually seen a trailer that solde me on it, but that didin't happen, and after the TLJ debacle, I wasn't going to fall for it again. Same with Star Trek. Although I did blow 49.00 on the special edition with the limited edition ship model ....
(2) The universe has more creatures in it than white guys, so I do not understand your problem with diversity. Ultimately, perhaps the mainstream creation will be a statistically smoothed humans of no particular ethnicity (or gender).
(3) See my comments here, also. The downgrading of Star Wars (and Star Trek) is just regression to the mean, like Japanese beers. Disney is not a craft brewer. You want a Modernistic house? Any architect in America can stamp one out for you ... now... But it will lack that ineffable j'ne c'est qua of originality.
It has the conflicted main character who wants to do the right thing in a difficult complex situation- who is continually criticized by all the other characters for his integrity. It is professionally made and not too heavy handed with its pc commentary.
I got a lot of insights from the program, enough to make me want to study such things...most were theoretical and Big Question stuff but at least it was interesting and caused me to study frequencies when a special "Bell" was rung to channel the quantum essence of one 'William Bell".
Not at all in our present reality but challenged one to think!
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the critics on rottentomatoes like it - a 91% positive rating.
But viewers seem to be as unhappy as Hitlery voters. Only 51% give it a positive review.
And that is from 159,843 viewer reviews.
Episode IV A New Hope 96% viewer reviews positive
Episode V Empire Strikes Back 97% viewer reviews positive
Episode VI Return of the Jedi 94% viewer reviews positive
Episode VII The Force Awakens 88% viewer reviews positive
Rogue One 87% viewer reviews positive
Looks like a loser from the Hollywood people who supported Hitlery.
Disney has been a ethically challenged cash cow since 1984.
Thanks for the stats...
Said to be written by children...that's one hell of a commentary.
Got my curiosity up as to "Just How Bad is it?"
"help me Old Milwaukee youre my only hope" to tolerate the crappiness of this movie
Something new and original comes along once a decade, once a generation, once a lifetime... Often it fails to find a market.
I had a class in sociology of the workplace and it presented the usual leftwing line that businesses suck our money out of our pockets with crap we do not need or really want. So, I. did a quick search for "famous failed products." Vitamin water. Big now; failed in the 1980s and laughably so: who would buy that??? Handheld PDA... Heck, the personal computer. For what? Calculating recipes? Gimme a break. But some people wanted them. Innovators, new adopters, outside-the-box thinkers... Then they caught on.
But to sell to a million people or a 100 million, you have to erase all the distinctions among them and between all of them and your product.
Walt Disney is dead. Disney Studios are back to Herbie and the Love Bug (part 2) and The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again. So, go tell your local power company that you hate 60-cycle electricity and want yours at 27 square roots of pi.
But BTW.... Anheuser Busch as the AB Inbev multinational corporation makes Goose Island and some other crafities. You don't have to drink Bud Lite. And maybe Disney will underwrite something more craftie later...
It is what it is...let it be!...let Us be.

Laughing.... but you did cut right to the heart of the matter where others exit stage left...
I never really liked Mark Hamill or the Luke character anyway so I guess I don't really care about his opinion.
Everybody has an opinion...
Still it was a fun movie for children.
I find it irritating that they went to"after" and the catharsis that was offered in "balancing the force" turned into a Rosanne Rosanadana "never mind".
That's how I saw the last two, that including Rogue One, which reminded me of a fighting to the bitter end propaganda picture made by Hollywood during World War Two.
Always seeing a Star Wars in a theater has become a tradition of mine since seeing the first one the 70s.
Tinnitus began to bother me during the late 90s and, save for the Star Wars tradition, I rent Netflix DVDs and only those that have subtitles.
My son saw the latest flick with a couple of cousins and said it was enjoyable.
I'll see for myself. So far I think the worst Star Wars is The Phantom Menace. Jar Jar Binks did not bother me that once, since I recall Lucas stating that the first Star Wars was intended to be a flick parents could enjoy bringing their kids to. Remember that race little Anakin Skywalker almost got killed winning. Ever since I like to call The Phantom Menace a tribute to child endangerment.
Most days, I hear fine, (except people the run their words together or don't enunciate well) in spite of the 110 decibel NOISE IN MY EARS!!!!
I like to see Star Wars at the Movies too.
Sometimes me dino just has to show out to be noticed.
I've been a show-off since way back.
During the late 60s you shoulda seen how I could spin about on a water skiing disk.
I acted out like a Jonathan Swift Yahoo on a slalom too, cutting hard to spray docks that I'd pass.
