The Revenge of the Heartless Brute

Posted by Dirck on 29 January, 2016

I see that I didn’t mention here having seen the latest Star Wars film about a month ago.  Old news, of course.  I agree with this guy’s take on it, which I will quote:

Star Wars is that friend of yours who you haven’t seen in a while, who was in a long-term relationship where everything was cool for a while and then things just plain went to hell, and the last time you saw them, they’d kind of hit the bottom. Now you’re seeing them again for the first time in years and before they show up you’re humming a little mantra that goes please please please please don’t let this be awkward and weird like it was the last time we saw each other.

And then they show up! And they look great. They sound great. You talk to them and slip into the groove with them, and they catch you up on what’s been going on in their life, including their new relationship with this fab-sounding person who seems to be doing good things for them. And you suddenly realize that for the first time in years your friend actually seems happy. They’re not exactly their old self again — who ever is, after all those years? — but the things you always loved about them are there once more, and you’re so happy to see them happy again that you almost want to cry.

Yep.  And since I viewed the Ewoks, retrospectively, as a sign of the trouble that was to be visited on that galaxy by its increasingly abusive partner, I take some glee in today’s Found Film:

Take that, you little creeps.
