I don't think it was Disney's business acumen. Tom Send a noteboard - 06/01/2016 06:59:46 PM

Apparently there's a huge stink about how no Rey toys were made, or how she was overlooked in most of the toy and game lines.

Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius

I gave it a B+ overall but I think the characters are its weak spot - 29/12/2015 05:08:15 PM 441 Views
JJ Abrams' movies are character-driven, Lucas' movies are plot-driven - 30/12/2015 04:38:49 AM 454 Views
