I don’t care for Porgs. I don’t get the hype. I mean, to some extent, I can understand the hype. Porgs are obviously super cute. But surely we all realize that they were manufactured that way, right? Like, Star Wars didn’t need a super cute race of tiny aliens for The Last Jedi.
Disney manufactured a super cute, hugely marketable nonsense creature for the sole purpose of suckering people into liking them unconditionally.
They’re like Furbies. No, they’re worse than Furbies. They’re Funzos.
Remember Funzos? Has The Simpsons taught us nothing?
If you’re into these Porg things, by all means, more power to you. I hope they have a meaningful contribution to The Last Jedi. But just on their own, as clearly manufactured nothings that serve no purpose and are probably just Minions rip-offs, I can’t believe how popular they seem.
And this is coming from a guy who likes the Ewoks.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped a new, quick little trailer and it’s pretty cool!
I think I liked this trailer best of all for The Last Jedi. It’s impactful and has some really cool material. Maybe we’ll all enjoy this movie after all!
Also, I don’t like Porgs.
One of my favorite pop culture Youtube channels is Mr. Sunday Movies. It’s pretty funny and he’s a funny guy. And I need some new video content to share on my blog. So here’s Mr. Sunday Movies talking about lightsabers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
He’s a funny guy with a great channel and you should totally subscribe!
Also, I have little interest in ancient lightsabers showing up in the new movie. I want Rey to build her own lightsaber and I want it to be yellow!
I think I’ve been watching too much Red Letter Media, because this new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has left me lukewarm. It’s a cool trailer, don’t get me wrong, with a lot of neat stuff in it…but it’s also just the regular Star Wars stuff.
Look, I love Star Wars as much as the next guy, but I dunno…nothing here really got me excited. So all the characters we know are going to be interacting again, possibly in interesting ways we didn’t expect. But then how many different ways are there to expect? And as I’ve said before, I don’t give two poops about Snoke. That guy can go suck a lemon!
I dunno. We’re so inundated with Star Wars stuff these days that a trailer featuring the same old Star Wars stuff doesn’t get me very excited, I guess. I’m still going to see the movie, obviously. Let’s not get crazy here.
God bless you if my little ol’ blog is the place you come for all your pop culture news. Otherwise, I’m going to assume everybody has already seen the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Here’s your chance to watch it again! Or your excuse to do so!
I dug it. Definitely like Luke’s line of thinking. Good direction to take a Star Wars movie. And I wanna make that shot of Rey practicing with her lightsaber on the mountain said into my desktop wallpaper.
Star Wars: Episode IX is totally happening in December, so we might as well all get hyped now.
