I really want to do an in-depth analysis of this film at some point, but my initial reaction was basically "wow, that sucked so bad."

How do you take an intellectual property worth so much money and not have some sort of roadmap for a series of films? It was badly in need of script-doctoring, narrative tweaking, and editing.

I am in disbelief that JJ could craft something so rushed, sloppy, and devoid of logical storytelling, but I guess when Disney has you under the gun you do what the house of mouse demands. Truly this felt like something built in a corporate boardroom and not crafted out of respect for the lore (like The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi felt to me anyway).

...and all of this criticism is coming from one of the most die-hard Star Wars fans you'll ever meet. It's really a shame they couldn't stick the landing on this trilogy of films and actively destroyed the legacy of some of the classic narrative by decisions made in this final episodic film.

Who do you all reckon the most-pretentious musical acts (bands or artists) are?

I'm not sure where my vote would go.

A few members of the Eagles seem to think they're shit doesn't stink, but then you have Joe Walsh who comes off as fairly grounded and humble despite being incredibly talented.

Some might say Steely Dan since the very nature of their identity as a recording act can seem pretentious. However, it's hard to argue the folks on their projects didn't have the chops to back up any kind of vibe of superiority.

I think most would be inclined to say newer or less-established acts that haven't manifested themselves over time as some kind of cultural icons. I don't know. What do you guys think?

My emotions are so torn right now...

The philosophical side of my brain knows Disney is pretty shit and shouldn't be buying any more studios, intellectual property, etc.

The comic fan-boy side of my brain though wants to continue seeing the Tom Holland Spider Man appear in Marvel Studios' movies / collective universe.

I honestly am not even a huge Spider Man fan, but non-Marvel folks controlling Marvel properties this day in age just feels downright wrong to me. I don't care if Disney is a merciless corporate juggernaut; they've legitimized comic book movies in a way no one except maybe Chris Nolan could do... Oh, and Tim Burton wasn't completely horrible with the first two Batman movies either... as a product of their time...

Gaaaaah, Disney just buy back Spider Man please!
