I Loved Star Wars Just The Way It Was and Now It’s Ruined

“I grew up on the original three so anything after that just confuses the hell out of me”. That is my standard reply anytime I’m asked if I intend to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I know I sound like I’m either a snob or just too stuck in the past to accommodate the future.

The future looks too blurry and crowded with remnants of the past drifting with the newly established order.

We now embody a time that is desperately searching for valid reasons to destroy the memory of the good old days when making a movie was an instinctual tendency that was facilitated without the input of clueless people who have zero idea about what it takes to be under the spell of the creative process.

“You go to make a movie and all you do is get criticized, and people try to make decision for what you’re going to do before you do it”. “And it’s not much fun. You can’t experiment. You have to do it a certain way. I don’t like that, I never did, I started out in experimental films and I want to go back to experimental films”.

So the answer is no. George Lucas comes from a time — a galaxy far, far, away. So far away that hardly anyone can recall what that climate was like because nobody wants to dare imagine it. But it was real and it did exist.

Those gems still endure today but unfortunately there won’t be anymore left for the generations to come.

Nobody makes those types of movies anymore. All we have are recycled delicacies that carry very little residue from the almighty blueprint. We see elements that evoke nostalgia but the rest frustratingly reminds us why we wish people would just leave things exactly the way they were.
