JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: OH WILL THE TIRESOME NONSENSE OF STAR WARS EVER END – BUT THE SERIES HAS ONE TRUTH IN DARTH VADER AS SYMBOL FOR AMERICA TODAY

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

Star Wars: The Last Jedi: the Force, the Porgs and the future – discuss with spoilers

Will people never tire of guys in white plastic armor, a man in an orangutan suit, Mark Hamill desperately trying to look serious and thoughtful, and absolutely ridiculous hairstyles and outfits like Daisy Ridley has in the picture above?

Cowboys and Indians in space mixed with John Wayne winning WW II, all with punk costumes and computer game effects.

Truly if space is going to prove as boring as this American military-minded series has it, it ain’t worth the effort.

The one honest thing about this series: Darth Vader, perhaps inadvertently, nicely sums up America’s current role back on planet earth.
