How Disney’s Star Wars Has Failed Its Diverse Characters

The only identity that Disney has established with their Star Wars universe is one thing…Diversity. Disney loves waving the big, bright flag of diversity when talking about their movies. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was sold as a new direction featuring strong female characters and an array of minority characters within their cast. This is fine and dandy, but in the process of celebrating films like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for its big, diverse cast and strong female lead, they completely forgot the most important part of making a film…Story.

Now that I have dug through all the trash, it’s time for the best films of 2017.

Top 10 Worst Films of 2017

It’s that time of the year again, for me to take out 12 months of frustration on the worst pieces of trash that took a minimum of 20 hours out of my life. Now I have to note that there were a lot of bad movies in 2017 but only a select handful of them actually made me upset watching them. So a few films you won’t see on the list like Fifty Shades Darker and Wish Upon which were obviously bad movies, but had an enjoyment factor over how bad those movies were.  The films that made this list has no enjoyment factor, they are human trash. Here is the list of Top 10 worst movies of 2017 with some Honorable Mentions.

The Revival of TRL Is Dead On Arrival

No Identity, No Buzz, No Great Content, and No viewership. The TRL revival looks to be short-lived if things don’t improve ASAP. The revival of TRL is one that sounds good on paper, but even if they have brought back everyone from the original show in the original format, you simply can’t bring back the era that was the late 90s and early 2000s and MTV is finding that out the hard way.

UPDATED: Has Late Night Comedy Stop Being About Comedy?

At the end of the day, this isn’t about whether these guys have the right to say and do the things that they do. The argument is has late night comedy become too political to still be considered comedy? If you are a long time viewer of late night TV, can you still watch the current crop of shows and separate art from politics or has the current trend made it impossible to do so?  

The Plot Thickens: Disney Reportedly Saved Agents of SHIELD From Cancellation (Follow Up)

No matter which side of the story you choose to believe, this latest development now has a lot of questions that need to be answered. Why did Disney step in and make the save for a struggling TV show? Did Disney also have input when it came to canceling Tim Allen’s show from the network? Why would they cancel a highly rated show while admittedly struggling for ratings with their other TV programs?

Tim Allen Is Upset About ‘Last Man Standing’ Cancellation…Does He Have A Point?

ABC claims the reason for their cancellation was the reason they cancelled the show was the did not want to continue comedies on the network for Friday night, I night they ironically use to thrive in with their T.G.I.F. lineup in the late 80s – early 90s. So if they simply didn’t want comedy on Friday nights, why not move the show to a new night?

To Protest Or Not To Protest? The NFL’s No Win Situation

If NFL players protest the anthem tomorrow in the wake of Trump’s comments, fans of the NFL who are already upset with the protest might see it as the last straw to give up on the NFL product and ratings have been down the last couple of years. If the NFL listens to Trump and tries to downplay the protest, the backlash of left-wing activist groups like BLM and others will be swift and loud. The NFL might not like it, but they have the problem on their hands and they have to pick a side. Take the fight to Trump at the possible expense of their fanbase or take a stand for their profit margin and distance themselves from the Anthem Protests.
