The Return of the George?

Is Kathleen Kennedy out at Lucasfilm? Will George return to save the Star Ward dumpster fire at Disney?  Will we ever see that Lucas cut of The Rise of Skywalker? Will we ever see it? Hollywood Vlogger Doomcock discusses these questions and more in his latest videos.

Just think George, if you hadn't completely botched the prequels.....

The problem with Star Wars is that it is homogenized corporate entertainment for children (and manchildren) which has been injected with unnecessary wokeness.

The best part of Star Wars are the hundreds of novels written by people completely detached from the films. What the Disney folks call the Expanded Universe.

See that's where the best sci-fi and fantasy will always be, in novels.

And do people really think the guy that made the The Phantom Menace is going to "save" Star Wars?

The rule of "get woke, go broke" is once again confirmed.

Transforming the franchise into "Mary Sue's Multicultural Space Adventure" didn't appeal to the core Star Wars audience and failed to attract a diverse new audience.

I hope they all go bankrupt.

Wokeness is just the most visible symptom of focus-grouped inoffensiveness.

When hundreds of millions are being spent, and billions are at stake, you're really not making art or telling stories. You're creating theme park rides designed to deliver a predictable regimen of sensations, with as little controversy or objection as possible.

Corporate wokeness just reflects a calculus about who is most likely to complain, and how to most efficiently blunt criticism that might distract from a smooth product roll out.

It's amazing how Kennedy managed to bungle a 4 billion dollar franchise. I can't believe someone didn't object strenuously to the axing of the expanded universe. And then have Kennedy turn around and unironically spout that they didn't have any more source material to draw on.

As much as I don't care for Marvel, at least they have Feige leading who is a Marvel fanboy.

You don't need George Lucas. Just give people what they want to see and not some hamfisted 'woke' political statement. What do they want to see? Male heo archetypes like Harrison Ford, Alec Guiness, Ewan McGregor, and Liam Neeson. Sorry if that aint progress.

Problem is Lucas made those crap prequels and oh yeah, he is the one who insisted on Disney placing Kennedy in charge when he closed the sale.

The best episodes were when Kurtz was on the team. He left halfway through Return of the Jedi and you can see everything going downhill from there. I just post these for fun. I gave up on it a long time ago. Haven't even seen TROS. Forget SJW crap, just plain bad writing and plot devices. Same disease that struck GOT final two seasons and Westworld this year.

I beg to differ Kingfish. Mandolorian is so good because they focused more on an ethnically ambiguous badass Male. The cringe was still there with the She hulks they injected into the plot. But the core attraction was Mando Badass and lots of shootouts.

People can handle female leads just fine. I liked Rey. just make it make sense. Instead of treating Rey as they did Luke, they turned her into the baddest, natural force user every who needed no training. Some of it got downright laughable. Look at GOT. Arya was the favorite character of many as was Dany until she went mad (another case of really bad writing.). It's not that she was a she, it's the use of her and writing was so bad.

Replacing Akbar with some clown looking woman just for the sake of it is bad writing. Throwing out the whole Canon is bad writing. Creating snoke then tossing him overboard with no backstory is bad writing.

Kingfish said...

And Kennedy didn't have her mitts on it either. She created three damn movies and I hate to say this, not even any merchandise sales worth noting. Meanwhile, Mandalorian produced Baby Yoda. First time in decades Star Wars produced something that became part of the culture.

It's not that people can't handle female leads. But obviously nobody wants to pay for a ticket to see it. Remember the Ghostbusters reboot? Wait for the new Bond.

Get a load of Kingfish trying to argue that Star Wars wasn't ruined by shitty feminism by blaming an individual shitty feminist!

George is a great idea man. But Star Wars would have been an absolute disaster if his wife Marcia and Paul Hurst didn't fix it in the editing.

Kingfish said...

I said it was. That and bad writing. Difference between me and you is you blame all of the problem on politics and I blame it on politics and bad writing.

The problems with the Skywalker Saga is trash writers and trying a trilogy out of order. It didn't help that Rian Johnson took a big shit in the middle of the trilogy. I think he rightly earned the monicker "Ruin Johnson" for his handling of SW. Though the moniker has no real meaning outside of SW.

Kurtz: The Rest of the story

Once he left, everything declined.

You will always be disappointed if you expect anything of value from the MSM. Much better off enjoying audiobooks.

Kennedy rolled the dice on Carrie Fisher and lost when she, not Hamill or Ford didn’t die.

Who freaking cares. 7 was a retold story of the first one, now 4).

They, Disney, will milk it until they get their billion back.

Just another casualty of progress.

If my kid ever told me he liked star wars I would whip his ass. Everyone
I knew in school that was obsessed with star wars was a weirdo. None of them ever had girlfriends. I'm trying to raise a man not a dork.

I'll never forget seeing the trailer to the first film at Deville Cinema. I was blown away !

I even spilled a large coke and a jumbo popcorn when the big ass space ships flew over the audience.

1976 or 1977 maybe ?

In all honesty, the bong hits at Parham Bridges Park (before the movie) may have had something do with my reaction.

With that said, Lucas screwed up when he focused on the little dog creatures . . . Ewos or something ?

If he had only required a quick "neck'id scene" with a young Carrie Fisher.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
