Accredited Times’ finance department pulled some serious strings and got me a ticket to see the newest Hollywood blockbuster from Disney, Star Wars The Last Jedi.
I agreed to write a review of this movie, so if you haven’t seen it, skip this review as it may contain some plot spoilers.
The theme of the movie is as follows- Womyn are awesome at everything and have taken control of the galaxy. They are opposed by vicious white males who sneer and seem to be totally unglued emotionally at all times. The nazi empire is led by a cousin of Voldemort named Snoke who came out of nowhere like evil villainous racists do to become mega powerful in the Dark Side in a short span of time.
Becoming suddenly powerful in the Force seems to run in the galaxy now as our heroic womyn Rey, aka Mary Sue, has gotten powerful enough in it to defeat a Sith Lord and Luke Skywalker back to back like within a few minutes or days of picking up a lightsaber for the first time! Once again Hollywood mirrors real life where womyn are simply better at everything than men, especially physical stuff. We can recall all the effort Luke took after training and he could barely even move an X-wing fighter. Rey, with no training whatsoever, can literally move mountains!
The new Star Wars dispenses with absurd stuff like tradition, time honored narratives, cultural institutions and whatnot and makes the old white heroes of yesteryear into bitter cowards who die meaningless deaths while brave and quippy people of color (and even asians) save the Galaxy again and again even while possessing plans that have no coherence whatsoever. Purple hair is a new thing and womyn womyn womyn in charge everywhere.
Every man, including the strong black man, is taught a lesson or two about toxic masculinity by the womyn in this movie and those lessons are well-learned as ALL of the white males are beaten down, grumpy cowardly losers. Just like real white males.
The chief bad guy, Kylo Ren, who also has no backstory whatsoever, is a big ugly emo dude, showing the reality of white males in today’s world as unhinged and physically unattractive. Meanwhile all other characters can immediately operate complex machinery in the absence of any training whatsoever. White males struggle to even function properly and are constantly belittled and killed by powerful womyn and minorities.
Many people have made some fuss about Disney being almost entirely jewish and this movie basically representing their irresistible urge to defile everyone else’s culture, especially whites’, and to destroy traditions, narratives, and cultural institutions, and constitutes a victory lap over the desecrated carcass of what was a pillar of cultural lore in formerly white America. To them I say screw you nazis, as what this movie represents is not a complete inversion of everything sacred into something profane, but rather, PROGRESS. Just like Marx wanted.
This movie shows us that Hollywood really has its finger on the pulse of PROGRESS and CHANGE. The world is changing into a place where white males have no future whatsoever and where womyn finally can emerge to do things it would take a man his entire life to master, and do it in no more than several minutes. It also shows us the triumph of incredibly intelligent people of color who can think and strategize circles around white males. It correctly portrays white males as emotionally unstable and violently frustrated as well as totally incompetent.
I think everyone should see this movie two or three times to bask in what a complete piece of work it is!
