Is anyone else sick and tired of Star Wars?

I remember when I was a kid and watched the original trilogy - I lost my shit. It was freakin' awesome. Light sabers. Hairy people. Goddamn Yoda and shit.

Then the prequels came out, and you were like, "Yeah, ok, not bad, I guess."

And then you grow up and start noticing how much of a business man George Lucas was with all the Star Wars Merchandise he brought out. Fair enough, you gotta make your money while the cow is fresh, but as the prequels showed, he had gotten a bit too ambitious.

Now you got star wars cartoons, goddamn Yoda in advertisements, freakin' re-issues of Star Wars action figures. Does anyone else feel like their childhood has been manhandled?

Now that Disney bought all the rights I feel like the milking is just about to begin again. Is anyone else jaded? Is anyone else scared?

star wars is bad all my friends like it, so i have to hear about it constantly

as to the poll, game of thrones is lame and the walking dead has half of a good season collectively.

The Walking Dead stinks now. GoT is so much better.

All the stuff you're complaining about has been around the entire time pretty much.

Tbh I have zero exposure to any of it so I'm not "over it". I can still watch the original trilogy with as much enjoyment as ever.

Since Star Wars came out there has been merchandise for it, the execs thought it was going to bomb and gave Lucas 100% merchandising rights. Lucas started milking it from the start.

Where do you see all the Star Wars stuff all the time in order for you to ruin your perception of it? I rarely see anything about apart from the odd ad on TV, you might be looking a bit to hard.

It's not that you're a moron if you haven't seen it, it's that Star Wars is one of the most iconic and legendary movies that has ever existed and it's just one of those things that everyone should see, regardless of whether or not they actually like it.




OT: I don't see it too much in my day to day life except when the Star Wars facebook page posts something and all the comments (usually completely unrelated to the post) say things like "star wrs is grestist movies ever luv u from brasil cant wate for 7th episod"

Walking Dead is so ****ing overrated. Perhaps the most annoying characters on TV right now.

Game of Thrones has its faults too, like too much pointless nudity, Sam's whole storyline, and the torture porn with Theon but the characters on there are at least likeable, even if they're not supposed to be (Tywin mother****ing Lannister).

As for the topic at hand, more Star Wars is always good.

I went by the toys section at ASDA a while ago to get shit for my Halloween night. I was amazed by the Star Wars stuff they were still selling. They were selling more Star Wars stuff than anything else.

Yoda ads here and there. Yoda is supposed to be a Jedi Master, he's not supposed to sell me shit. That shit bothers me.

They've been releasing the animated ones recently. That's how marketing works.



Yea, I am really tired of Phil threads.
