You know what I want to talk about today?
The legacy of films, the impact they have on generations, the way they shape our moment and the way they influence our future.
Today, we're talking about Star Wars.
A lot of people talk about Star Wars.
Obviously, because a lot of people love Star Wars.
There are probably more people who love Star Wars than there are people who love Jesus
But unlike a lot of other movies, people who talk about Star Wars almost inevitably talk about how Star Wars was made.
The stories behind the scenes of Star Wars are almost as fascinating as the stories the films tell.
It's time for me to talk about something that's been on my mind for a while now.
With the fallout of Justice League's release, I think it's time to talk about DCEU fandom, and how it developed alongside the unraveling of WB's ambition for DC films.
Full disclaimer upfront: I am NOT talking about people who enjoy DC films, fans of DC characters, or anything like that. I'm friends on here with many people who like these movies. I'm talking specifically about the toxic folks who have ruined the reputation of DC fans.
You know the ones. The ones who sent critics death threats after bad reviews came in, who have harassed others for not sharing their opinions, who have formed conspiracy theories about Disney paying critics, who claim that people who don't like BVS "don't understand it".
