I think John Todd summed up star wars pretty well. It basically promotes witchcraft.

Who actually believes in witchcraft?

They only character worth a darn anymore is Boba Fett. The rest have all been destroyed.

Right. The guy who got eaten by a giant desert rectum.

Did they ever explain why they trashed a space casino other than because it had rich people who liked space horse racing?

They did, it was because they were arms traders plying both sides of the conflict.

is it that the quality of movies have declined, really? or is it that we now have cable, streaming, blu-ray players, and piracy presenting so many more options to divide the viewership?

A black dude as a stormtrooper makes no sense to me. Weren't they all clones of Janga Fett?

The First Order uses kidnapped children for their stormtroopers, Hux even alludes to wanting a clone army in the last film.

Long are the days where Grim Fairy tales where accepted, only to be ignored or even censored.

I was more upset that Yoda was like Jiminy Cricket with hint a of Disney magic.

My only question is Why is diversity in filmmaking so offensive?

I'll start another thread about why calling a person a Social Justice Warrior is used by some as a pejorative.

Nobody is saying diversity is offensive.
I actually named several movies with strong female leads.
The problem is the forcing "no pun intended" of characters on the audience at the expense of good story telling..

Define 'forcing' characters on the audience? A 'character' is a character. One can like or dislike a character but it is the 'story tellers' prerogative to cast them as they see fit.

I think you are confusing your presence for any given character to look a certain way with the story teller's version of that character.

I like the idea of a woman as Dr. Who, it's not what I'm used to, but it's bringing something new to the character.

Read a book instead, you can 'visualize' the characters any way you want....

Theaters are empty because they don’t make good movies anymore. Sure, here is the occasional decent flick, but by and large they lost the magic of movies made in the 80s and 90s.

Then stop complaining and write something. It's a technological new world of entertainment, films, TV, webbased episodes, open to anyone willing to
Learn a few basics of story telling and write it down. There is even software to take your narrative and turn it into industry standard so a production company can use it.

I can guarantee you that any quality material can find a market. Take the challenge and ...My hats off to Bluntone22 for his efforts.
