Star Wars is a pop culture behemoth. If you ask someone on the street to think off some 'space movies' or something, right? The chances are high as hell and they will of course say Star Wars. But what about the hardcore fans? The ones who will buy or follow anything with the bloody Star Wars logo on it? The ones who see every movie, read every book, watch every show, listen to every audiobook? Well, they're awesome people, and i myself do all the above.
My account is specifically towards Star Wars, sometimes i do DC videos (Nothing against Marvel, but you know...i like DC more...i can see the Marvelites lurking, lads) But today, i will tell you the specific problems SW fans have or will face.
#1: Knowing You Can't Use The Force:
The Force sounds so awesome! Moving things around, mind tricks, and all kinds of bloody awesome things! But you can't use it in real life, now can't you, mate?!
Well, at least we got Iphones.
#2: Having To Argue With The Trekkies
Star Trek VS Star Wars has been an endless debate, more ancient than Mona Liza's feeling on the painting (Like who gives a shit if she's smiling or not) but the real thing's simple: Both things are nerdy as hell and alright.
Well, i adore Star Wars but i do respect Star Trek, even though i'm not that fond of it, and Trekkies being ugly geeks is a stereotype that i am not really sure what to make of it (But they are some cool Trekkers i know) but my mate (who's a trekkie) has a hot girl and (No homo) is pretty good looking , so who knows? Maybe Christiano Ronaldo is revealed as a Trekkie and then being a nerd and wearing as a Starfleet (or something, i dunno) costume would become a trend.
Only a trekkie can hope.
#3: Having To Accept The Prequels Are Canon And Move On, Mate!
Star Wars Prequels are the very proof that letting a film maker has so much power can do some...messed up, midichlorian shaped bullshit.
Agreed, a whole generation grew up on them, and i am not trying to crap on what millions of people grew up on but hell, mate, they are bad films. I would say i watched Hook as a kid, but still nostalgia will stop me from thinking that it's a shitty film.
Midichlorians, Jar Jar, 'NOOO', i would rather go to hell than spend 6 hours marathoning the prequels again, and again. Hell, i am going to marathon the OT, to forget about the prequels, just after i write this article, mate!
#4: Cringing At The Luke And Leia Kiss
I know that Lucas didn't plan to reveal these two as brother and sister, but still makes you feel horrible when you think about it! Two twins kissing. Ugh. Bloody disgusting!
#5: When Stormtroopers Don't Hit Bloody Anything!
Stormtroopers are ridiculed for their well known skill of...not hitting jack.
Even though people think the Troopers in the OT, they're not. But even if they were, they are clones of an awesome and good at shooting bounty hunter and you can't hit shit!
A little ironic, isn't it, mate?
#6: When You Hear From Someone You Know, They Don't Like Star Wars:
Now, i know some people in my life that don't share my passion for Star Wars, and that's fine, to be honest.
But if they dislike and talk crap about it i'm like:
Then there's with the 'Star Wars' Girls:
#7: When You Wanna See The Next Episode NOW! But Can't:
Even though i know all of us want to see Episode VIII right bloody now! We have to wait, mates. 2 MORE YEARS! 2 YEARS! I can't wait that long, i bet world peace would be achieved! (Which is never) but atleast we got to re-watch Episode 7 over, over, over, over, over and over again til' then.
#8: This Motherf***er:
Yeah, screw this wanker. This tall annoying bastard.
#9: Trying To Not Hate George Lucas
The prequels happened and ended, and we need to get over it, but why? WHY, GEORGE? Why would you do that SW? I understand even George showed some frustration when he was showed a rough cut of the Phantom Menace. Just type: George Lucas reaction to Episode I.
I mean, the man's got crazy, in an interview, a few months ago, he said after the PT he wanted to the sequel trilogy....and a movie just about wookies.
How are we supposed to take this man seriously after that? HUH?
#10: Dealing With The 'Strange' Things Disney Does To Star Wars:
Since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, it has done some..questionable things with SW. Like ditching 30 years worth of back-up canon, cancelling Clone Wars to the horrible and generally terrible Rebels, and letting EA (of all game developers) Do a Star Wars game when SW fever was at all times high. And it turned out...okay. I don't know. i have Battlefront in my PS4 and it's fine but..you know, i wanted something better than a SW rip-off of Call Of Duty.
Well...The Force Awakens was good, atleast.
These are just 10 of the biggest problems SW fans have, and there are much more, but this article is gonna get too long, and you are gonna get bored.
Next article will be "5 Star Wars Spin-Offs That Need To Happen" which is probably gonna drop tomorrow noon...or something. I'm a bit of a lazy dickhead, mates, but i'l manage to get it done in time, no worries.
