    I agree with his assertion that the biggest mistake Disney made was trying to "split" the baby in the new trilogy. It would have been better to recast the original characters or make the new movies focus entirely on new characters.

    Why are we taking that clown’s opinion on anything seriously?

    I’m honestly not sure of three things:
    1. Who Ben Shapiro is?
    2. Why I should care what Ben Shapiro thinks?
    3. Why this needed its own thread when the movie is already being discussed in the review thread?
    ETA: I did a little research. I now know who this guy is. He’s not someone whose opinion I believe I would respect. So I’m going to take a pass on watching the video. Enjoy your discussion, but I’m out.

    Quite. This guy is an arsehole.

    I also don't believe this needed it's own thread. See the sticky thread posted in the subforum.

    Ben Shapiro is wrong about a great many things and I have no reason to believe this would be any different.

    I once saw a video of Alex Jones talking about Revenge of the Sith.

    It was so weird hearing him make sense.

    1. Ben Shapiro is a conservative which makes him evil around here.
    2. Obviously you shouldn't.
    3. Who cares?

    No, leave this one alive in terrible thread purgatory forever.

    He is very stupid man with breathtakingly wrong takes on nearly every subject. The fact that he is conservative is pretty much incidental.

    1. To me he's just another tuber, so his opinion means about the same as any other tuber.. As in 0.001 per cent care.
    2. Doesn't matter who he is and what his political ofiliation is.. This particular video seemingly has nothing to do with his politics.
    3. Shouldn't be its own thread.. Post it in the spoiler thread with the rest of the tubber reviews that I won't watch.

    Love the tolerance. And yes, the video has nothing to do with politics. It's a decent review of the movie.

    No, I honestly don't give a shit what Rachel Maddow thinks of the movie either, nor do I think such a video review would deserve its own thread.

    Fair enough, though your post here is not guilty or hate filled. I'd rather have a political figure talk about something non-political than a politics inserted in entertainment in places it doesn't belong.

    A political figure talking about Star Wars? No problem. Star Wars pushing political agendas? Problem.

    Someone should tell George Lucas that, given how his politics informed the making of Star Wars.

    well as an aside.. we don't know the political offiliation of well.. most Tubers.. we just care about if there decent, or honest.. stuff like Midnights edgey or others that are trash on the fact that there garbage spewers.. thats one thing.. Some political guy girl or martian makes there own review of some movie.. hey.. free country.. watch it if you want, if you don't like them based on .. whatever.. Don't.. Trek is Freedom! IDIC!

    Absolutely! Which is why I didn't advocate closing this thread. I still believe thread probably could have fit in the main review thread, but whatever. Its not hurting me. I make no secret that I'm not a fan of YouTubers whose sole intent is to make a living off of them BUT they do have a right to post their opinions. And posters here have the same right. I also can choose not to partake in those discussions. I'm trying to take a more live and let live attitude. Can't promise I'll be perfect all the time, but I'm trying.
