Why You Love or Why Hate Star Wars.
Read This and Decide for Yourself
Whether you admit it to yourself or not, you have a love/hate relationship with Star Wars (If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be reading this, trust us). You might either think you love Star Wars, and await the stand-alone Stormtrooper #3 Origin Story trilogy with bated breath, or you think you hate Star Wars and everything about it (except, again, you’re still reading this).
Why the love/hate? It’s actually pretty simple. Here are the Top 6 reasons you love/hate Star Wars:
HATE: The exploitive nature of Slave Girl Princess Leia - the whole golden bikini thing felt objectifying, even in 1980…
LOVE: The popularity of Slave Girl Princess Leia Cosplay - basically the reason we go to Comic-Con.
HATE: Jar-Jar Binks - The digital minstrel show of the prequels…
LOVE: To hate Jar-Jar Binks - He gives us license to not hate the Ewoks quite so much…the stupid little buck-toothed teddy bears.
LOVE: Han Solo and Lando Calrissian - the real men of the galaxy…
HATE: Other actors playing Han Solo and Lando Calrissian - sorry, Childish Gambino
LOVE: The stories are downright Shakesperean.
HATE: That it seems George Lucas is trying to get us to watch Shakespeare. Wait, is Luke Skywalker Hamlet?
LOVE: All the funny, quirky robots in each of the movies...
HATE: That they won’t just SHUT UP for a SECOND!
LOVE: That Disney bought the franchise and is releasing more Star Wars than ever.
HATE: That Disney bought the franchise and is releasing more Star Wars than ever.
