    Err... no? Just trying to imagine how other genres could fit. There are plenty of ways it could work. Bounty hunters, outlaws, search for a treasure, etc...

    *shrug* I thought it was a rather creative take on alien invasion movies.

    Well, technically not, since they have to make an emergency landing, with the South African government taking them in, living among the rest of the population, which is where the political commentary comes in. They still end up causing trouble for the population which wants to evict them. But it's a movie that subverts many expectations.

    Oh my god, I'm an idiot. I misread your comment as "DS9 wasn't that good."

    Yeah, no, District Nine isn't really that good, darn right. DS9 on the other hand.....

    Could use a remaster. TNG is downright amazing in 1080p, with updated visuals and all the colors that now pop like they never popped before (I've been rewatching this past week).
    Bummer that it's not happening any time soon.

    So you really love being ao oversensitive.. you love making sure that everyone is included because after all there is always sine demographic being left out and they HAVE TO BE PUT IN. .. (are you offended that more freckled faces are not put in lead roles?). Are you offended when Elmer Fudd shoots Daffy over and over?

    If you're going to constantly post bigoted screed, would it really trouble you to at least learn to spell?

    I'm looking forward to Flight of the X-Wings, the tale of two Tatooinian musicians coping with life in Coruscant as the Republic's 217th most popular Folk Novelty Duo.

    Yes. As in your posting history on this board. It's been explained to you over and over. Don't act surprised or confused.

    Star Wars is a big universe, so I don't see why they shouldn't be able to include as many different types of people as possible. No group deserves to be excluded, and everyone deserves to have heroes who are like them.

    Not according to the super excited little girl Star Wars fan I met last week, who loves Rey and even sees her character flaws and how she learns from them. Your arguments come down to asymmetrical application of standards and criteria in order to reach a preordained conclusion.

    Same with my daughters and my friends' daughters who dress up as Rey and create Lego characters with Rey, etc.

    Nope.

    Edited to add:
    How many billions of dollars have Rey and Captain Marvel racked up? 4?
    Yeah, if only I could be so "actually devalued."

    Nope.
    If being the main character of monster franchises is devaluing a character, where the fuck do I sign up?
