  1. Star wars news : Cnet made an article called "Star Wars has never been better, thanks to Disney". But if you read it there is an entire section of the article that do nothing but praise things that either just came out or are still in the pipeline.

    Then you read the comments and the most upvoted one just JUMPS at the opportunity to say "Oh [editor], I just love your article. [ ... ] I just love how all the toxic comments prove your point"

    Meanwhile all I can think of is. The failure of Solo. The total halt of Star Wars Story movies. Creative freedom was being called to a complete halt by LucasArts. Toy Sales are down the drain. Galaxy's edge is effectively 'empty'. Ryan Johnson did not get his trilogy. D&D told no to Star Wars in favour of Netflix. Rise of Skywalker is STILL being worked on. And I am not even going to touch the whole 'Star Wars Adventures' thing while making Leia a 'woke woman'

    But wait, I think it is a Disney Shill Plant, after all, it is Cnet. And who owns Cnet ?

    1. @drinkingpony Solo was good. It just had the misfortune to be released so close to The Last Jedi and had its reviews affect Solo. Solo had issues but it was fun and I enjoyed it.

      1. @adiwan Solo was mediocre at best, but lets agree to disagree. You are right regarding being too close to TLJ though. But then again we are pretty much talking about the mother of all cataclysmic events that drove the fandom in twain.

        If the people were not so split on TLJ like they were, then things like 'fandom fattigue' never got invented and we probably would not have much negative stuff to say about Solo.

        Well, other than the directors of Solo being fired at 90% completion of the movie over 'creative differences' and the thing going out of budget by several dozen millions. The 'news' that comes out later to patch up that hole seems awfully convenient to say the least where actors speak out against the fired directors.

        But hey, those are in the same category of people that said that Alden Ehrenreich needed on site coaching how to be more like Han Solo. I call out Nepotism. I reckon you would not have had this problem if you hired Ross Marquand ( I am kidding, a bit )

        1. @drinkingpony I have a soft spot for the film. I cannot help myself. Probably you have some films that are not very excelling but you like them nonetheless.

          1. @adiwan Ehmm, no ? I have a list of terribly bad good movies ( Machette, Iron Sky, Kung Fury, Hobo With a Shotgun, Sharknado, Surf Nazi's Must Die, Hercules in New York, Poultrygeist : Night of the Chicken Dead, Batman ( Clooney ) & Robin, Face/Off ) that are filled with "haha, oh my, I can not believe they did that, haha"

            I can only guess that is what you mean with 'not very excelling but like them nontheless"

            I also have a list of Terrible Terrible movies ( Troll 2, Birdemic, Laserblast, Cool Cat saves the kids, the frEd movies, The Last Airbender ( M Knight ) foodfight ) that make me point at the screen and make horror faces like that one scene from Body Snatchers, you know the one.

            I mean, unless if I tone down 'like' to 'could watch it again instead of playing video games'. Then you get movies like Beverly Hills Cop, Police Academy, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Naked Gun, Die Hard ( Best Xmas movie ), Fifth Element, Starship Troopers, Liar Liar, and Wreck it Ralph
