Star Wars was a three-legged stool. The first leg was the new trilogy that used the original cast, and that ends next year. The second leg was the standalone stories like Solo, which are now toast. The third leg was future trilogies intended to be built on new icons like Rey and Finn, but no on emerged as icons.
Everytime progressives get their hands on a beloved property; THEY decide that it’s time to change it to fit THEIR agenda. Then every time the fans of that property object to their agenda, they demonize those fans as the worst people on earth to deflect and shut down any criticism of their plans. Now Star Wars is the property that progressives have deemed needs to be changed to meet their standards and don’t you dare have a problem with it.
Star Wars is a dark place right now because if you look at the schedule of future movies, the next Star Wars film doesn’t come out until December of 2019. Disney is going to have to sit on this failure for 18 months. Even when we get the new trailer for Episode 9 whenever that is finished, the damage has been done.
Thanks to the Punisher, I became obsessed with street-level heroes like Spiderman, Daredevil, Blade, and the X-Men.

In a recent interview with Vulture, Actor and Producer Seth Rogen doubled down on his commitment to promote progressive politics in his film and television projects. When asked if his perspective as a white guy not being the most relevant to these larger cultural discussions such as the #MeToo movement (Yes, this was a real question)
The film that everyone has been waiting on Avengers: Infinity War comes out next week. I got the idea from the group at WorldClassBullshitters to rank all 18 Marvel Cinematic Universe. 10 Years of hard work that will culminate in the first part of the 3rd Avengers installment (that from everything I’m hearing is sure to be funny…) Disclaimer: This is my list if you don’t agree with my list; you can post your own…or get bent. Going from WORST to BEST with the number 18 film and the one I hate the most of the entire MCU…
