Yeah I kinda hit the mental breakpoint of "this is a chore and I refuse to do any more of it" this morning. I still have all of Rebels and all of Bad Batch and most of Mandalorian Season 2 and all of The Book of Boba Fett and all of Obi-Wan and more Clone Wars and even more and you can't skip any of that.
Star Wars is just going to be one more
thing I refuse to spend my time on this planet spinning my wheels on over and over and it will invariably be one more thing that every acquaintance and algorithm in my life will want to shove down my throat at every opportunity for the next decade and counting. Which, that was always a matter of when.
I'm only presuming to post about it here not because I like ranting, I really actually hate ranting like this guys
, but because it's kind of impressive just how
much I managed to disassociate it all. Star Wars is back to being... two and a half good movies, in my mind. That's it! No prequels, no sequels, no spinoffs, no... interquels, not even KotOR which is fine on its very own but it ain't no Star Wars, my friend. All that is there but it's some other... well, it basically is indistinguishable from all those books I never read, basically basically basically.
Is that nice? Well, yeah, it's kinda nice. Star Wars the multimedia juggernaut based on one goddamn franchise is still going to be crawling up my every open orifice for the foreseeable eternity, but at least I can appreciate how cool Darth Vader looks again without thinking "whiny prep who's sad about his girlfriend being choked to death by him".
