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.
