  • Published: 04 October 2019

            The location of Luke is "secret plans"? Sure it's a secret, but it's not plans.

                          It’s really interesting watching Kevin smith these days when he waves and has that goofy look on his face. Also is he on speed haha nice to see him healthy

                                                Force Awakens isn't a reboot, though. It's a sequel. Also, please tell me Kevin Smith isn't one of those gatekeeping assholes that thinks "diversity" is a dirty word.

                                                  First off, I was using SJW correctly, second off your more of an SJW than I first anticipated.

                                                  You actually think that movies aren't diverse enough, I mean what would of made you happy with the casting of Ghostbusters, should one have been Asian, an another one Trans.

                                                  An the problem is, it's people like you that are ruining movies, because instead of focusing on the story, your just looking at the cast.

                                                  I bet you hate construction workers don't you, well let me tell you something, the Men who are employed/chosen, are chosen because of their skills/experience, not because of what is/isn't between their legs, if people like you controlled the working industry, everyone would be out of a job "sorry buddy, too many dicks on site, either get a sex change or fuck off, I hear Nurses are desperate for Men", sorry buddy, the world don't work like that.

                                                  Steve Austin Like, seriously, if you wanna take lazy potshots at reboots daring to have more than straight white People in them, why not take a lazy potshot at the 2016 Ghostbusters. (Which wasn’t even really that diverse of a reboot when you think about it, I mean three white girls and one black girl? That’s the exact same race ratio as the original two movies, and despite McKinnon irl being a lesbian her character’s sexuality is never really stated. Really all they did was flip the gender, and they’re all cis too, so it’s not even good enough at being diverse for the “FoRcEd DiVeRsItY” complaints to hold any water. Well, at least it would if the idea of “forced diversity” as a negative thing held any water to begin with, which it doesn’t) Like, it’d still be lazy and kinda cliche, but at least he’d be taking potshots at like, actual reboots.

                                                  Like, imagine if Scream had spent its run time lampooning Psycho or Silence of the Lambs while still parading itself as a parody of slasher movies

                                                  Steve Austin Lets See, the unironic use of “SJW”, diversity is in quotation marks and treated like an inherent negative, you think white People and straight people are being replaced by black people and gay people, weird hate boner for The Force Awakens despite it being a classic Star Wars story of overthrowing a corrupt fascist government, and now either a horribly timed triggered joke or a severe misuse of the actual psychological term of triggering. Frankly I should ask you why you think I should take you seriously but I know your answer will just be more childish manbaby whining that the things you like are growing to include more people that aren’t like you

                                                I'll save you the time. The actual answer is the lighting in the store was fluorescent and there was no way to rig lights every night in an open store to make it look good on film. If you strip away all the color, the ugly hues and yellow stains turn grey and it looks better.
