You would think our friendly movie makers have had a bit too much of that mind-melting Californian sunshine. Why else would they have developed this special gift for ruining our cultural legacy, not to mention the fact that they are not nearly as ashamed to show off their special magic as you would expect them to be? Well, there's a reason why this happens: it's called movies by committee. A perfectly skilled director and a top-notch script are simply no match for the dark force of top-down nonsensical committee decisions that threaten to overshadow any sequel you've been so looking forward to.
Committees ruin everything.They consist of the same type of people from the planet Bozo who prefer money over creativity and their fix of power over humility. The worst kind of committee fetishists are completely blind to their own inability to fully understand (dare I say, fathom) what the original movie — or in this case trilogy — was all about. Yet they truly believe they know better than us, the fans, what would be good for a franchise and are ready to cast a spell on anyone who disagrees with their boundless wisdom.
Take Bob Orci, co-screenwriter of Star Trek Into Darkness (yes, the sequel to the reboot), who lashed out at anyone who dared to even question the intelligent creative decisions he had made, saying, 'there is a reason why I get to write the movies, and you don’t.' It didn't take long for mighty Bob to go ape nuts on a straying fan and tell him to 'fuck off.' That's a quote.
I'll just say one thing, Star Wars Committee And The Powers That Be: one mention of Jar Jar and I'm so gonna want my money back.
All of it.
