” The Dark Wars ” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, here we go into another year … !!!

So, as we have left 2019, we also leave the Skywalkers to fade into the void of space …

As a die hard fan from The 77 New Hope debut, it was a highly anticipated movie for me, however, like many, it seems I have to say that the fandom has a fair case in the criticisms that many are levelling at Disney especially !!!

Firstly, and swiftly, let me deal with the ridiculous levels of Identity Politics, that in many ways, seem forced and unnecessary, in my opinion !

Tokenism, from a race perspective, an overtly feminist agenda, that was so over the top and OP, (Over Powered, for those who don’t know), that even members of these communities, surely, have to squirm just a lil’ bit, at how these agendas are being flouted, even in Star Wars ???

Thus, a same sex kiss was just thrown in to ensure the alphabet genders get into the mix too, even if done at the end, in the background of the victory celebrations scene !

Is this what we’ve come to really, movie makers being the ones fighting for varied causes and movements, that the movements themselves, should surely be taking care of … controversial view, well, I don’t think so, merely, a quizzical thought about what seems to now have become the norm in a lot of todays’ entertainment ???

Moving on, it’s pretty clear that when J.J. Abrams became,

” Jar Jar Abrams ” …. in the view of vloggers’, that problems were abundant with the movie, and sadly this proved to be the case for me, upon seeing The Rise of Skywalker, which had proven to be more like the DEATH, of an incredibly successful franchise !

The non-appearance of its creator, George Lucas, at the movies premiere, speaks more than volumes, it speaks of an incredible disrespect for the thinking, writing and processes that developed the original trilogy.

As many are saying the movie appears to have tried to correct much of what The Last Jedi presented in its story, and thus seemed to be trying to do two movies in one !

Essentially, we are given a treasure hunt, which leads to the finale, which incorporates, a Truly NONSENSICAL, return to life for The Emperor, who we all thought died a long time ago in a screenplay far away !!!

Well, Disney has proven to have had their eyes on the money, ahead of providing a story that firstly, MADE SENSE, with a suitable continuity, which could bring the saga to a satisfying end !

Suffice to say, without even attempting to explain the ridiculous plot, i’ll take from things said by more avid Star Wars fans.

So, Palpatine surviving his fall to apparent death in the, ” Return of The Jedi ” …

Immediate FAIL …

Simply WTF …. ?!?

However, his reappearance guaranteed an audience though right ???

“Can you hear the Disney Money Train ?!?”

It’s clearly a case of follow the money for the decision making by Disney on that one, which ultimately covers the majority of gripes that I and others, have with how this then played out ….

Eventually it also has become clear that honestly, the casting was fair to middling regarding Ridley, Boyega, Driver and Isaac.

I get that they can only work with what they’re given, but over the three movies, they’ve basically failed in creating a dynamic that worked as a new collective, and definitely nothing like as effective as the Luke, Han, Leia, threesome.

So, fundamentally, a poor set of remakes, however, as far as for making easy money, because of the franchises legacy …..

It would appear to have been a win for Disney, especially on the basis of new products to market to new fans !

I just hope this is not indicative of where movies are heading, but much like society, collecting fast bucks ahead of earning it for good work, would seem to be the way forward.

A lot of show, without much substance, again, much like society these days, so, as much as this will obviously upset the racist fans, this version of what could now be done, would probably be better than the one we’ve just been handed !!!

So, here we go folks into 2020, and as much as people try to deny, we’re heading into a dark time where, the title of this piece may well reflect how things are about to be internationally, for most societies !!!

PPS :

I wrote the bulk of this,
BEFORE the current Iran Situation !!!

Anyway, here are some wars that might just be a better option, than the ones we’ve actually got now !!!

ENJOY …

The Virge ….
