Anon, I'm going to be honest with you; Just go home and watch your Star Wars OT, PT, and Clone Wars boxsets. It's not worth it anymore. It just isn't fun. pic.twitter.com/TNcu2hytYT

Episode 7 turned Han into a dead beat
Episode 8: Turned Luke into a scared suicidal recluse.
Episode 9: Stripped Anakin of his legacy as the chosen one and handed it, and his name, to a fucking PALPATINE.

I’ve ate, slept, drank, and lived Star Wars every day for 42 years. No review, tweet, fan site or comment is going to negatively affect my enjoyment of this movie or any that come in the future. For me, Star Wars is not dead. It is immortal. #starwarsisforever

With a combined budget of $923million, I can't help but wonder how much that money could've been better spent than on the Disney StarWars Trilogy.
What a monumental waste of the audience's time, money & energy, and the industry's resources, man-hrs & talent. Shame @Disney. Shame.
