Star Wars Is A Dead Franchise
So I was forcing myself to watch The Mandalorian the other day when the realisation hit me - Star Wars as a franchise is dead. Its been dying for a long time, but now there's no hiding it. Nobody cares about it anymore. It died because Disney killed it.

    I don't demand much from a show. Just be entertaining and MAKE SENSE. When half an episode covers how Din wants to resurrect IG-88 cuz it's the only Droid he can trust to help him find a bath on Mandalore, and not 5 minutes into his quest to get the needed parts he gives up and takes literally the first available crappy Droid instead, it doesn't make sense. When Bo Katan gets pissed cuz she sees that Din's ship is coming back to bother her again, she says "ima get rid of him for good". 30 seconds later, she is rushing off to rescue him? It makes no sense. Or maybe all this makes sense and I am just too stupid to understand...

    I know that these films damaged Trek and weren't that good but I had this impression Star Trek was dull and stuffy from when I saw it as a child these films allowed me to at least get a tiny bit of familiarity with the universe that made me want to go and watch more. After a while I finally let my curiosity about TNG get the better of me and I watched the whole thing, DS9 twice and now I'm getting through Voyager slowly. I think of myself as a bit of a fan now. Ironically that has now made me dislike these films that I sort of liked before.

    Star Wars didn’t die because Disney killed it. Star Wars died because over the past twenty years Lucasfilm has understood less and less of what made the otherwise B-level sci-fi trilogy a miracle. And this is largely because the social/cultural environment that made the film no longer exists.

    So many of the greatest franchises are already "dead" and that's not a bad thing. Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, they all should've been left untouched long ago so that their glorious perfection may remain frozen in time forever for all of us to look back on and enjoy...

    I'll say something that I don't see spoken of about the decimation of SW. Blame Kennedy, blame Johnson, blame Abrams but you know who we should be blaming... George Lucas! He was quoted years ago saying he didn't want the large movie studios meddling with his beloved story so he wouldn't sell his rights to the films. Well, what did he do? Lucas was obviously done with making SW films so we would have ended the story with the first six films. It could have ended right there, but then Disney threw 4 Bill in front of Lucas and he turned to the dark side.

    He was the best thing in a movie by a director who .. doesn't ,or can't, do understated. But that's okay, the same could be said about Spielberg, Aronovsky's heavy hand shouldn't detract from Fraser's great performance.

    Well apparently some leaked info said that Favreau was gonna quit Mandalorian because Kennedy was pulling strings to change the getting Carano fired and bringing back Grogu for marketing purposes. Favreau got fed up and said fuck it she can do what she likes with the show. The head honcho asked what would it take for him to stay on and he said complete control on Mandalorian season 3 with no Kennedy involvement so according to that, all season 3 is Favreau.

    I started to dislike Star Wars because the Rebels were incompetent. They kept winning big battles. Yet they could never take over the government. Why? Probably because most of the galaxy didn't want them. They were pathetic in the grand scheme of things. The Force was the only reason that I continued watching anything from Star Wars.

    I think hollywood sabotaged the next generation, of which Brendan was one, of action/comedy stars. All of those from the era the up and coming fell off a cliff, and Sly, Bruce, even Arnold kept churning out movies. Whether intentional or not, there is a serious glut of action stars from that time. Of course that was the time political correctness was coming into its own. so...
