Why I'm Breaking Up With Star Wars

So why am I not jumping up and down and screaming 'utinni'? Because I feel it's time I saw other people, explored other franchises, and travel to other systems. George, it's not you, it's me. I feel that Star Wars is no longer mine; it's no longer that innocent cult that organically gripped a generation's consciousness.

It occurred to me that maybe I was just as deluded as every one of these hopefuls who I had judged. Maybe I was just another desperate, fame-hungry, talentless nobody that the casting directors would just laugh at prior to sending me on my way home within seconds...

Planet Ivy

What sticks in my mind the most about this visit is the power of imagination. George Lucas created all of this with an idea he had in his head. A story that inspired millions. It showed me once again that in this life we're only limited in our capabilities to think 'big'.

James Peckham

So what went wrong with Zombieland: The Series? Just by watching the first few minutes of the pilot the fatal error is staring any fan of the film in the face. Is that meant to be Harrelson/Eisenberg/Stone?! Why did the writers decide to use the same characters in which we now associate with A-list Hollywood actors?

After some notable successes in the 1990s ... studios seemed to lose their nerve when it came to delivering big budget bonanzas. Subsequently, fans have been fed a constant regurgitation of films from those glory days, in the form of prequels, sequels, remakes and reboots.
