There, now that I have your attention let me explain. I personally plan on watching the new Star Wars film and will most likely enjoy it. I have just grown a little bit sick of all the hype and all the marketing and I am especially tired of all the people who saw the trailer and said it was so good it made them cry. I do not hate Star Wars or J.J. Abrams and the new movie will probably be very good. This is just a list poking a little bit of fun at all of the extreme excitement for the new film. What follows is entirely based off of what has been seen in the multiple trailers that have been released and I have not read any of the books leading up to the movie.
Please take this list as it was intended, all in good fun.
I can’t keep my mouth shut anymore. Screw the Ghostbusters reboot! Here come the cries of “Sexism!!!” My issue with this film is not the all female cast. It is with the fact that they are doing it as a reboot. They very easily could have just described this as a branch of the previously established Ghostbusters franchise that happened to be run by a group of women and I would not be aggravated. This does not mean that these women could not be scientists or be coming up with their own fantastic technological advances to make the business better and would have placed them in the same universe as the Ghostbusters fans already know and love.
