I'm not at all bothered by it. There is literally nothing else in pop culture that means anything to me. Star Wars has just been so near a dear to me since I was a child, it makes me happy to see it everywhere. I just fucking love Star Wars.


Anything else this big pisses me off though.

This is why The Force Awakens was shit, because it was made with the intention to sell merchandise from the start by appealing to nostalgiafags, however this ended up backfiring by quite a lot. You see, the original Star Wars had no hope in selling at all and studios had no faith in it, the effects used were part of its charm and A New Hope reflects the decade it came out in well. The Force Awakens does none of that and is a big, steaming, bland, soulless capitalist turd that will be forgotten in a couple months time.
>>
>>64479939
The original SW movie had zero merch to support it. The action figures didn't come out until a year later.

ESB and ROTJ had the toys plus child-related stuff like school supplies and such.

Ep.1 is when it went beyond kid stuff and was more mass-marketing across a wider variety of shit

Ep. 7 is when you're watching Jeep commercials that have shit to do with SW but doing cross-promotion anyway while seeing SW in stores on everything but feminine hygiene products.


It's definitely an escalation that did not start off that way.

What - you only eat off the meal ticket in the student commissary? Or does mom do all the grocery shopping?

So what? I loved my Star Wars toys when I was a kid. I have an X-Wing, two TIE Fighters, a Mil. Falcon, a Rebel Snow Speeder, and Jawa Landcrawler, and various action figures of the main characters.

When I try to think of what toys my younger-self would want from TFA, the only thing I can think of is maybe a BB8 or a blue X-Wing, which is just the same as the old red X-Wing.
If TFA is just trying ot market toys, they failed even harder than the Prequels. I think I even had a Naboo Starfighter too; at least that was unique.

I had a Naboo Starfighter.

Didn't have many Star Wars toys I believe. The Starfighter, some kind of mini-lightsaber (like a dagger or sth, oh shit), and I don't think anything else. Oh, I once got an Anakin custome for xmas. It was god-awful and I refused to wear that thing.

Would Star Wars be doing as well if it weren't for social media? I mean of course it would be making good money, but not the amount of money it is raking in now.

TFA was good. Disney made a movie that every Star Wars fan, from the old OT purist to children and new fans, can enjoy.

Why aren't they allowed to make money on their $4 billion investment? Why can't children play with toys from the movie they liked? Oh yeah, you're an edgy internet marxist who thinks money is the devil, even though merchandising has been part of Star Wars since its inception and is half the reason its' endured for so long

I saw it 3 times.

1st time in a shitty seat, high off a brownie with some high school friends.

2nd time in 3D sober with family.

3rd time in 3D because my dad hadn't seen it and he thinks I don't love him since him and my mom broke up or something so I didn't want to deny him seeing the start of probably the last Star Wars trilogy before he dies.

I don't regret seeing it 3 times, and if some stupid super special extended edition comes out like what they did with Avatar I'll probably see that too.

Dreaming of galaxies far, far away in cinemas nearby. Crowds gasp in amazement swinging their hands along with lightsaber movements. Alas, the audience's awe is uninspired. Just like Kylo Ren walks and talks Darth Vader but is afraid he will not surpass his supremacy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is afraid of treading treading uncharted territory fearing it will not live up to the expectations set by the original trilogy. As a consequence its universe provides nothing but an ersatz adventure.

The banality of the blockbuster serves to suppress the audience's capacity for imagination of better worlds to come. Cool artifice replaces reality. As a spectacle the blockbuster reaches its apex when its whole is self-contained: nothing but images referring to other images of popular culture. In Star Wars: The Force Awakens the universe created is a hodge-podge of familiar elements of its franchise's former glory days. For instance, Rey, who ostensibly is the new Luke Skywalker, originates from a desert planet abandoned by family just as Luke was. The Empire is now called the First Order, ruled by a Sith Lord identical to the Emperor and is still intent on building planet-destroying superweapons containing one fatal construction flaw. Han Solo returns the way the fans were hoping for: flying the Millenium Falcon with Chewie. Sadness of his death stems more from the disappearance of a fan-favorite character than from a tragic narrative.

Mired in self-references, the film ultimately signifies nothing. Its world is a poor substitute of man's innate sense of discovery. Where the literature of J.R.R. Tolkien fills the reader with a sense of wonder, Star Wars: The Force Awakens embodies the estrangement of man in his self-shaped artifice. The creatures wandering about come over as nonsensical and a mere sign of inter-space relations. More importantly, advanced technology is elevated to the fantastical, taking the place of man and nature as the source of all worship. Technique is shown to be a worthy ruler. Megalomaniac spaceships, each one bigger than the other, reveal our complex society's preoccupation with technological advancement. The Star Destroyer is its ultimate fetish.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is propaganda of seriousness (as defined by Johan Huizinga) in its most deceptive form. The viewer becomes trapped in its numerous winks to the Golden Oldies. He sublimates his innate alienation living in a technical world of artifice into an ersatz adventure. When he leaves the cinema, his critical faculties are weakened. Instead of being awakened, prompted to use his life force, he is lulled to sleep.
