Conservative writer destroys Star Wars on Twitter saying it’s a victory for feminists
The film industry is suffering from many things. Aside from a wave of sexual misconduct claims made against some of Hollywood’s biggest names, box office receipts are no longer what they used to be.
Driven down by home-viewing services offered by Netflix and Amazon Prime, the industry is also hampered by a lack of “good movies.” Thus, Hollywood is relying on the newest Star Wars chapter to boost a lackluster year.
The premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi was held Saturday night in Los Angeles. Formal reviews won’t be out for a few days, but some journalists and others at the screening shared their initial reactions online.
“Logan” director James Mangold praised “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson, calling his film “a great chapter of a blockbuster franchise, spectacular and unpredictable, but also his own voice shining through.”
Producer Adam F. Goldberg wrote that the film made him feel like a kid again.
Rian Johnson, the writer and director of the eighth installment of the Star Wars franchise, dedicated the premier to Carrie Fisher, who is known for her role as Princess Leia. Fisher died after filming had completed.
The film opens in U.S. theaters next Thursday night.
Analysts believe the opening of “The Last Jedi” could make anywhere from $190 million to $215 million, and falling anywhere in that range would give it one of the biggest openings of all time.
Entertainment reporter, Germain Lussier wrote: “The Last Jedi is everything. Intense, funny, emotional, exciting. It’s jam-packed with absolutely jaw dropping moments and I loved it so, so much. I’m still shaking. ”

Spoiling the wave of good reviews is conservative writer Mark Pantano. On Twitter, he wrote: “In the last Star Wars movie, a 90 lb woman without a day of training defeated a man, who had been training his whole life, in a light saber duel. Feminist politics. Too stupid for words.”
He continued, “Let us take the lessons of the new Star Wars movies and apply them to the world of Martial Arts… It would appear that a Karate novice can defeat a 5th-Degree Black Belt as long as she has Girl Power! Yay Feminism!!”
It appears politics finds it way into everything.
In the last Star Wars movie, a 90 lb woman without a day of training defeated a man, who had been training his whole life, in a light saber duel.
Too stupid for words.
