Welcome to another edition of our recurring feature here at Film Goblin, NERD FIGHT!

How it works is really simple:  A movie-related central supposition or motion is proposed, and then everyone everywhere can go full-geek and debate that motion.

The Only Rules Are:

  1. Stay on topic.
  2. No personal attacks / don’t be a dick!
  3. Have fun.

The Motion

This Nerd Fight! topic was proposed by a number of contributors over the course of a few weeks. Got an idea for Nerd Fight!?  See below for how to submit.

The specific supposition is this:

Three beloved movies occupied our chidhood dreams.  Three not so beloved movies dissappointed our early adulthood.  as our middle age dawned there was a new hope.

But something is wrong, very wrong in this galaxy far, far away.

Responsibility for this FALLS ON the accused, kathleen kennedy.

– ham-fisted attempts to fight progressive battles through shoe-hornED social commentary.

– an inability to create a strong female character that isn’t a walking mary-sue cliche.

– Shitting on beloved characters.

– Making a prequel nobody wanted, to answer questions nobody asked. twice!

she has become the death star, destroyer of worlds.

we accuse her oF crimes against cinema, even crimes against culture.

is she guilty?  the film goblin community is judge, jury and executioner.

The accused, yesterday.

Celebrate the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story the only way we know how.  By starting a massive fight on the internet!  Come at us, and we’ll drop you the way Kennedy drops Directors who fail to get on-board the progressive bus!
