I am glad you agree with my analysis, after you have seen 'The Last Jedi' 4 times.  I have seen it only twice,  once in English, and then once it Thai language, while I was in Thailand, with no English subtitles.  Thank goodness I had already seen it in English, so I knew what was going on.  Otherwise, it would have been very frustrating!

I am not happy with what Disney has done to the Star Wars saga, either.  Especially this last movie, like you say.  By 'woosified', I think you mean the general liberal progressive agenda, which is infecting the entire world now.  

For example, what is up with all those stupid little penguin critters, that just got in the way and served no useful purpose?  They remind me of the 'tribble' outbreak in Star Trek.  And when poor Chewbacca tries to eat one that he has just cooked,  another one gives him a pathetic little whimper, and Chewbacca throws the cooked meat away.  What a waste!!  Chewbacca was probably starving, and should have eaten what he had cooked. This is just liberal propaganda against eating meat.  I imagine there were some gullible children who went home from the movie, and protested against eating their chicken dinner. 

Then the stupid little penquin critters infest the Millenium Falcon, and Chewbacca has to knock them out of the way while he is conducting dangerous maneuvers. No doubt the little pests left messy droppings on the controls, and everywhere else.  Time to throw some more little penquin critters into the pot,  I say!!!  LOL

Having seen  the latest version 4 times (with different family friends), I think you right on the money with your conclusion.

Now to stir the pot a bit.....I really didn't like the latest episode.   It seemed to be overly woosified......

I am glad you enjoyed the post.  But have you seen The Last Jedi?  If not, now you must go and see it, and see if my analysis is helpful.

Re: Re: Anib to GM

Sanskrit literature and language that should be.

Re: Re: Anib to GM

One thing I forgot, your writings too, are no less amazing for, you write with passion and honesty that speaks directly to the heart.

Re: Anib to GM

Thank you so much for those benevolent showering of praise. Although I am not a native of either America or England, it has been an abiding love of mine for the beauty of the language. I am not so adept at expressing myself (in writing) in Hindi or Bengali that I am, as I can, in English. And then, we have had that love for English in our family. My granddad, my father's elder brother, was one of the finest scholars of English Literature who taught at various universities, and so was my father exceedingly good with his typical penmanship style of  handwriting of the Americans. I myself happen to teach literature in the local girls' University. I won prizes for writing since I was in the ninth grade. So, that should not be so surprising, as my initial education started started from a convent school, St Xavier's, where American fathers taught. I learnt a lot from them. 

But I am an inveterate fan of the Sanskrit literature and literature, now almost extinct. Losing it, we lose a fine culture with the profoundest of knowledge of all kinds; a single word would have a variety of hues, of which there are no parallels even in English. For example, the word in the present continuous 'anubhuti' that is 'am experiencing'. English has only 'anubhava', which means, to experience.Cheers!

Thanks for your support, I think.....  I have never heard of that English literature, and you never cease to surprise me with your intimate knowledge of American or English writings that I have never heard of.....  you are of Indian origin and Hindu, while I was born and raised in the USA, as a Christian, with a passion for reading, far beyond my peers.....  and yet you surprise me again and again..... I must salute you for your diligence in your readings and studies,  my friend.....  Cheers

Hello my friend GM....

A finely argued write-up which I enjoyed reading. I quite agree with you that there should be (or cannot be) any such rule as is being propounded, that any Good should have an equal and opposite Bad force to neutralize it, or vice versa. That doesn't make any intelligent sense to me. I'm reminded of the (greatest) narration of Dryden's political satire through the allegory of the Old Testament Bible's 'balancing act'. The Whigs were against the Roman Catholics (Tories) during Charles II's monarchical rule in the 1680's England, and were hell-bent  to bring in Democracy. Says Dryden, "The sober part of Israel (that is, England), well knew the value of a peaceful reign: / And, looking backward with a wise afright, saw seams of wounds dishonest to the sight: / In contemplation of whose ugly scars /, they curst the memory of civil wars. / The moderate sort of men thus qualifi'd, inclin'd the balance to the better side. /  And David's mildness managed it so well, / the bad found no occasion to rebel. / But, when to sin our bias'd nature leans, the careful Devil is still at hands with means; / and providently pimps for ill desires: / The good old cause reviv'd a plot requires. / Plots, true or false are necessary things, to raise up common-wealths and ruin kings". That was perhaps the best commentary I've ever read. Cheers.
