I tend to take notes while I watch movies. Then, I transcribe those notes here when I’m done. I recently watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so here it is. Text is what what written, information in [[double brackets]] are after-the-fact notes.
The Last Jedi
Between black listing and just punching out of internet conversations where it came up, the backlash I’ve seen against The Last Jedi has been muted and undirected. Some of the socially aware folks I follow are discontent and the folks who’d call them “SJWs” who occasionally float across my dash also seem unhappy, but with a duller focus than I usually see from them.
People have even dredged through and compiled Mark Hamill interviews with a fervor that either represents their moral outrage or an equally strong desire to get Mark Hamill fired from Star Wars forever, the dicks.
Anyway, the pre-movie ads are still up so I’ll fill some more time. [[TLJ apparently thought it assert its dominance over me in the ‘filling time’ competition]]
I’m watching the AVX version or the BMX version. Whatever bullshit theater upgrade they only put in two theaters so they can charge $2 extra to folks who couldn’t make the earlier show because their car was acting up. Whatever. It’s just $2 [[And my car barely started when I left, so that’s a win]].
But seriously, how much bass does the “silence your cell phones” PSA need?
Fuck man, the lights literally just went down and this bitch in front of me immediately pulled up Facebook on their fucking phone.
