While I was considering giving the movie a two months' grace period before the comic, it is still relevant enough to discuss while it's still opportune, so I pushed it up the publishing queue for "first thing next year."

I went to the theatre with full knowledge I was witnessing a trainwreck.
And a trainwreck was exactly what I got, so I'm not disappointed, I even enjoyed it (in my own, MST3K way, that is). At first I thought it was just going to be just the kind of trainwreck coming from "the movie for everyone (and thus, for no one), but then Disney just pulled a DnD 5E and decided to say "fuck all, this one's for the neckbeards."

I found particularly hilarious how this movie evidenced all misogynists out there. That guy in the row behind you nerdgasming at Palpatine's Dragonball-Z shit? He was definitely bitching at Rey "being overpowered" back during Ep 7. Their beef was never at a "badly written character," quoting Frank Trollman: they don't want to see girls doing boy things, period.

In any case, this trainwreck gets no skin off my back, I did have my best Star Wars in a decade, it was The Mandalorian.
