    Some (a few) do seek validation, they look for others who believe as they do as it helps them process things that they have difficulty with alone (size of the Kelvin Enterprise from 2009 is a perfect example and it was fantastic entertainment... the film wasnt bad either), on the other hand others (also a few) tend to treat those who simply dont like something as if they need to be convinced otherwise or given counselling, I have actually seen one or two on this board try to do so but I dont think they realised that was what they were doing, I decided to let it be as it made me ponder who needed the counselling more, those who enjoyed the show or those who didnt. :shrug:

    Yeah thats right folks, the internet is in reality a gigantic therapy session for the human race. :biggrin:

    As for the Last Jedi, I saw some clips and ended up laughing at times when I was clearly not meant to be which told me everything I needed to know about the script, its no accident that Rian Johnson has not been allowed anywhere near the upcoming final film when he was supposed to be Directing it, that spoke volumes to me, the whole situation was mishandled on pretty much every level by Disney and they got their nose bloodied for it.

    As you all know I am pretty lenient on this kind of thing whether its Star Trek or Star Wars but if even I noticed it from just a few clips I can certainly imagine how some die hard fans would react after waiting over 30 years for it, Disney cocked up big time and it looks like they are throwing the kitchen sink at the last film to try and recover the Star Wars IP from the gutter, brave of JJ Abrams to come back in to try and put it on the right track, he didnt have to and I would have understood if he had kept away.

    Mind you the Yoda part is gold, I always suspected he was a galaxy class troll.

    I wont go any further on this subject as saying this is off topic is putting it mildly. :angel:

    I don't need validation. The vast majority of my film and media consumption is against the grain of what people enjoy. I am a person who likes to understand the Whys of things. So, that's why I enjoy discussing what I like and don't like.

    I see no reason why enjoying something cannot provoke critical discussions as well.

    Not to be that guy but Rian Johnson was not slated to direct this upcoming film, and currently has his own SW trilogy in development.

    Actually I believe that Rian's ideas for a new SW Trilogy have been put on hold for the time being.

    ERROR... AIR-ROAR... AIR-ROAAR... <BOOM>


    My bad, I've been out of touch with Star Wars for a month or two.

    I sympathize with your affection for TOS S3 and Nemesis. But not the other 2, especially Jar jar.

    Be careful now...I didn't say I like Jar Jar. I just said I didn't hate him. I was very careful about that....!

    I think this place is more like The Breakfast Club. I won't get into who's who but just imagine some of us in that movie. :p

    The Phantom Menace is objectively better than The Last Jedi. Fight me. :)

    I think that should be a thread sticky in the main Disco forum.
