When the show started, it wasn't too bad, but once we got mid-way of season 2 is when I knew this show was going down hill. Remember the Gozilla rip-off episodes? Those were just ridiculous and then season 3 went down a weird direction with this chosen one crap. First off, Anakin doesn't believe it, yet in boasts about it in the last two prequel films.
But season 4, omg! Lucas! where the hell are you getting this BS content! Not only is is stupid, unrealistic, un-natural, lacks clarity and decent common sense, but you've gone past the line of ABSURD!!! This is not Star Wars, it feels like a deep, dark, demented cartoon. What the hell do witches, voodoo dolls and zombies have anything to do with Star Wars??? And you constantly bring back characters that are suppose to be dead and then turn them into a completely different one-dimensional card board cut-out character.
I even watched that behind the scenes with Sam Witwer and he's all excited about the role and I'm like "of what?" All he ever did was say one line, fight and then get cut in half. How is that a character and one to be excited to play. It's not like we knew he was alive and patiently waiting, he was dead and the fact he wasn't brought up in the next two prequel films was because he was dead!
Lucas is ruining Star Wars by producing and releasing this BS crap! It has nothing to do with Star Wars, it doesn't expand, add, make more vivid or entertaining in any way! It's just tons of animated crap thrown on the screen! And idiots out there, not just kids, are soaking in this crap because it has Star Wars stamped on it!
One was about this military female character that is kicked out for some reason that wasn't clear and then she's crying, pouting and acting like a 5 year old and I'm thinking, "this is someone from military training?" GROW UP!
The second book had nothing but trash in it and the writing was so simplistic and the plot went nowhere!
Third was a star wars book, which I didn't have much expectations but it was about a bunch of media people writing fiction stories about Luke, Han and Leia and I was just not impressed. And the villain, he actually believed the stories he read!!! O_O And was intending on making Luke Emperor of the remaining Empire and went on about prophecy crap like from the prequel films!
And lastly, the fourth, I couldn't even understand a damn thing the writer was trying to say. The story started off at a pointless place and then is introduced to a new alien character that was very poorly described. And something tells me this guy has a very low opinion in women since their only purpose-the few female characters in this-are used nothing more then to sexually please men and reproduce. O_o
This crap infuriates me! I hate it when people force their opinions and beliefs in their writing. Do I need to remind these writers I want to be ENTERTAINED! Not lectured, confused, disturbed or bored out of their mind!
Maybe it's just me. Maybe my opinion is pointless and meaningless but I do not accept the majority of science fiction books out there as good writing.
What is the best way to develop a positive attitude?
Still trying to figure that out...
I try so dang hard to avoid this type of content. Most young adult books are too kids-like, but adult books are just too graphically detailed! Why can't I have a balance!!! I'm so mad, I wasted all that time reading a 500+ page book and I'm not left feeling satisfied, entertained or relaxed, but disgusted, violated and deeply disturbed! It's going to take weeks, if not months, to get that crap out of my brain! Thank you, you idiot and perverted writings, for not only greatly disturbing and creeping me out, but ruining one of the best and most popular science fiction series! These writers deserve every piece of hate mail they've gotten! I thought people were being seriously harsh at first, but now I know why! And not just because of the graphic crap.
The writing is too simple, thought they love to show what big words they know and constantly repeat themselves. Use the same dang big word over and over and over... It doesn't show or feel like a Dune book, lots of "telling" and no showing, jumping back and fourth, battle scenes lasting a few paragraphs, took forever to build up to the dang climax and then it lasts one page!!! There are no main characters, just a group of people in separate locations, doing pointless stuff, I didn't even understand what the plot was and the few things that did interest me and had great potential were brushed aside!
This book sucked, majorly! And it also ruined in the last two books of the original set. I'll never be able to read books 5 and 6 again knowing the conclusion of Hunters Dune and how it has left me feeling mentally and physically sick and disgusted!
I'm feel so irritated that part of me wants to go back to just reading Star Wars books, at least they have a limit on what kind of content can be used! They always say they do this to attract different types of people, well how about writing something to attract people like me who have morals and don't wish to have to sit and read through trash! I want to know what content is in the book before I read it! It's my money and time being spent, so it's the least you could do for your readers!
And people wonder why I'm so picky...???
I can't help it, I'm addicted and considering how hyper I am from playing for the last 6 hours, well I'm got lots of inspiration and energy for my writing! Woo Hoo! (And partly wanted to finish to get the distraction out of the way :P Was trying to write the other day and my mind can't thinking of character building and how to get more Experience Points, lol.)
It wasn't just about a year ago I had last played. So, I did my annual Kotor event!
And with Kotor on the subject, I'll see about making some icons :)
What is your favorite quote?
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when my fear is gone I will turn and face fear's path, and only I will remain." - From Dune Series said by many characters but most well known by Paul Atreides and his son Leto II Ateides
This is the only banner I have right now but I'll make more later on today! If you could help promote the community, I would be very greatful! And if you like to make star wars icons don't forget to join :)
