I don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting lore breaking dues ex machina fuckery and overt character assassination.
It's fucking shite.

> You got banned for making an asinine argument,
Capital. Beside the point of that completely contradicting the reason given in the original ban message, it was supposed to be tongue in cheek. Never mind.
> It worries me that you're so affected by this.
Don't worry m25, I'm not coming to raze the shedbunker to the ground or anything I can't anyway since you fuckers moved it to the cloud *grumble grumble* .

This asinine argument requires 2 sides to perpetuate. As an outsider the only difference I'm seeing is that one side has mod powers and the other doesn't. Someone with some sense please delete all of the offending posts (yes even the mod circlejerk ones (it really doesn't look good from the outside) and this one) .

I think you're just prolonging the argument by making points like this, no matter how valid. Not that there was ever a mod in this thread defending or lambasting Star Wars, just for the record. It'd be different if the lad got banned for being right (or wrong) about Star Wars, but what actually happened was he made an infuriatingly silly point and was comedy banned for it, at which point he asked for everyone's badge numbers and made it a whole thing, after which he was banned twice more for fun/autism.
Believe it or not, mods do not last long here if they make frequent over-judicious bannings.

You could just write it off as racist misogynists being racist and misogynist, but I really don't understand why Kelly Marie Tran has got so much shit that she had to leave social media.
You may think her subplot was ridiculous, but her acting was fine and her character (even if she was to blame for her character) was at worst unremarkable. She wasn't annoying or lore-breaking or anything. She was just... in the film. I just can't fathom why anyone would choose to have a go at her.
|>>|| No. 22332
She hasn't said anything to that affect from what I know it seems like the online gossip mill (read:news site) have taken it upon themselves to speculate that as the reason. Which seems a few too many steps into begging the question to me. (harrased by trolls and quit - sure that's one of the the many possible reasons.
Specificaly racists sexists going after her and quit - now that's just wishful thinking to fit a sensationalised narrative and get clicks).
It could very well be a completely personal or mundane reason, I don't think people need a good reason to quit social media, even celebrities.

Rian is the one who deserves the criticism for having her interrupt Finn's redemption moment, but the irony there is he wouldn't have needed that moment if they hadn't glossed over the character devolpment he had in TFA.
All in all, there was so many missteps that people are overwhelmed with things to criticise about it, but attacking an actress who at worst just followed direction seems like a uniquely American pastime. They're absolutely mental.
|>>|| No. 22336
It isn't, but saying it must be racists and sexists is.
And remember we still have no reason to suspect that that is the reason she left other than speculation at this point.
It would be like saying if you criticize Israel you must be an anti-Semitic who wants to exterminate the Jews. The two don't follow. Most of her trolls probably just though the last jedi was shit they aren't racist or sexist they just have misplaced fustration.

Like I said before, if they aren't bigots and they thought the film was shit why would they have a go at her? There was nothing otherwise wrong with her.
|>>|| No. 22338
You sound dense now. You don't have to be a bigot to think the actor who played the character you didn't like ruined a movie, you just need to be making an emotional decision rather than the logical one.
People hate traffic wardens, it isn't their fault though that the law is what it is, it is just their job. But that doesn't stop people acting like it is their fault.
Rose is a character that feels like a shoe horned Mary sue and is the catalyst for the most jarring narrative choice in the film of course people are going to hate her and some people aren't wired in a way that they separate that from the actress.
People do it the other way all the time, and you probably do too, without questioning, People act like Patrick Stewart is great because he was Picard, but everything I've seen of him in real life makes him seem like a bit of a knob head.
|>>|| No. 22339
Not the one you're arguing with, but I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest you've not bothered to check on the nature of the abuse before deciding it isn't racist or sexist. Just a hunch.
|>>|| No. 22340
Since none of the 5+ news sites I've checked that didnt want permision to abuse my data have actually provide any examples of the harassment. I don't know what to tell you.
|>>|| No. 22342
Well do you want to maybe demostrate what the racist and sexist harrasment was? Rather then presuming that because I can't prove their isn't a teapot floating by the moon there must be one?

Stop projecting, lad. It's unbecoming.
|>>|| No. 22344
Who's projecting? my position is that I don't believe that she left because of racist or sexist motivated harrasment until shown any evidence that it was.
I remeber any critism of ghostbusters being labled as sexist when it wasn't, the issue was it looked shit and was. So I am no longer willing to take peoples word that something related to celebrity culture on social media is sexist, without seeing it for myself.

>Who's projecting? my position is that I don't believe that she left because of racist or sexist motivated harrasment until shown any evidence that it was.
No, that's not your position. Your position is that she quit because of harassment by people accusing her of being shit. Unless you're backpedaling, as often happens when people are caught out trying to pull this sort of shenanigans.
>I remeber any critism of ghostbusters being labled as sexist when it wasn't, the issue was it looked shit and was.
Which of course explains why the cast were bombarded with racist and sexist abuse. When a black person is in a shit film, that totally justifies comparing them to a gorilla, right?
Get your head out of your arse and stop being willfully blind.

except of course when I said-
"She hasn't said anything to that affect from what I know it seems like the online gossip mill (read:news site) have taken it upon themselves to speculate that as the reason"
"It could very well be a completely personal or mundane reason, I don't think people need a good reason to quit social media, even celebrities."
in my first post
"remember we still have no reason to suspect that that is the reason she left other than speculation at this point"
in my second post
But other than all of the times you are wrong, you are right.
>When a black person is in a shit film, that totally justifies comparing them to a gorilla, right?
Because we all know the half dosen or so people who made those comments and were banned from twitter represents all criticism of the ghostbusters film that was made and was being off hand dismissed as misogyny.

Is menk actually a thing? I live in the countryside so you could make up pretty much any word and disguise it as ethnic slang around here. I'm going to invent three right now. Grebby. Lashwang. Deng-eye.
Also I can't be bothered to make a whole post about this in /101/ but what geriatric jobsworth decided that the suffix -wise should be appended to every random government initiative's advertising campaign? Like change4life's 'be treatwise'? Has anyone ever actually used the word 'streetwise'?

Sounds like she is learning self empowerment quite late if at all. I think staying away from social media is the best thing that could happen for her self esteem. She seems like she isn't psychologically equipped to handle social rejection she has been experiencing.

I can't imagine many would be. I've never had a hundred thousand people tell me to go fuck myself but I bet I'd not be happy about it.

You get loads who are able to deal with it, you just don't think about it. Any major politician goes through this along with plenty of journalists, and controversial figures. The way they deal with it is evidently not putting any value in those comments.

Caught Return of the Jedi on ITV2 the other night, and I can't remember the last time I saw it.
A lot of it is pure shite. Ewoks are terrible, which is a shame because the commando raid gets to a great start with the speeder chase.
I forgot how crap C3PO is (he's a dick and annoying), but R2 is still likable.
On the other hand I like the barge scene, and the climactic space battle is still awesome, including the chase through the death star.
What really tops it off is the final confrontation with Vader and
Luke. It's as good as I remember.
And having reflected on the worst film of the original trilogy I can without a doubt say that The Last Jedi is a stupid film that needlessly shat all over established characters and wasted every opportunity it had to actually make interesting plot developments. It was basically over two hours of people doing things that lead to no actual change in the course of events (Kylo is still a dick, they still got caught, Rey is still a nobody, Leia is somehow still alive due to the worst plot armour I've seen recently). At least that awful marple haired twat died.

>Ewoks are terrible
I always like to view the ewoks through the lens of a retelling of heart of darkness/ Apocalypse now from Kurtz point of view. The rebels are pretending to be gods to a tribe of flesh eating natives to get them to fight their war for them. It makes it all a bit more sinister and their morality more questionable. The heads are probably still in those hemets they play like a drum kit at the end.

It wasn't Jenny.
All that really happened was a bit of abuse on Twitter whilst it was airing, most of it seeming to come from the type of person who'd have a crazy clown as their profile picture, but it's water off a duck's back. My work colleagues had compiled the worst ones to share with me the following day.

They've only been showing new episodes of series 12 since the start of this month. Not saying which Chaser because one of you moon ovens would probably be able to identify me from that information alone.
|>>|| No. 22466
Speaking from experience, if you got abuse on Twitter you probably took the minus offer, which is a cunt's trick and if so you deserved to lose, or you were so unbelievably thick that you infuriated viewers.
Mr "I went on national telly and I'll tell you just enough to show off but not enough for you to be able to actually SEE me!" Except by telling us that you got abuse on Twitter you have probably given away too much anyway.
