Star Wars Sucks and So Do You! Part 1 of 8

Hello, and welcome to Part 1 of my 8 part series entitled Star Wars Sucks and So Do You! Now that the Star Wars films have been released on blu-ray I feel that with the millions (possibly hundreds of millions) of Star Wars fanboys eager to get their greasy paws on the films in this high definition format, it falls to me to explain to the world why Star Wars sucks and you suck for watching it. Each part of SWSASDY will consist of a review of a single film, in chronological order, focusing on the cringe worthy moments (there are many) and why Star Wars is the biggest con job to come along since organized religion.

When I was a young boy I remember waking up very early one morning and not being able to fall back asleep. I walked downstairs and into the kitchen around 6am. No one else was awake so I turned on the 13” wood paneled television that sat in the corner on a black metal cart. I sat down on one of the wooden chairs and watched as a young guy hung upside down in a cave made of ice. This was my first Star Wars experience though my parents claim to have brought me (only one at the time) to the theater when Star Wars was first released in 1977.

Over the years I was a Star Wars fan and it grew to a crescendo in college when George “Fat, Beard, Flannel” Lucas rereleased the Special Editions in 1997. I was studying abroad in London at the time and I went with classmates to see each film, all more than once.  I ended up ruining ROTJ for about 2,000 people but I will tell that story at a later date.

When the new trilogy came out I saw Episode 1 on the first day. Jar Jar. Need I say more? I took my girlfriend to the midnight show of Episode 2, where we both fell asleep from boredom about halfway through. Everyone loves Episode 3, but fuck Episode 3! It’s shitty just like the rest of the films and I will tell you why in Part 4 of my 8 part series entitled Star Wars Sucks and So Do You.

Star Wars sucks. It’s a fact. Get used to it. The story sucks, the acting sucks, the costumes suck, the special effects suck, the director really sucks and you suck too! If you want to break free from the madness, then burn all the shitty merch, including the same exact fucking toys FBF has been spewing upon humanity for the past 30 years, tell all the people who laugh at the lame Star Wars references from popular TV shows nowadays to go fuck themselves and realize that for a long time you have been part of a cult. I am here to save you from yourself so stay tuned for the rest of my 8 part series, Star Wars Sucks and So Do You!
