With the most recent release in the Star Wars films series, A Force Awakens, the world has been a galaxy far far away-mad. Posters, merch, interviews, cospaying, videos, ALL OF IT. What has also emerged are the think pieces.
Think-pieces are generally just long form blog post on a paritular subject. The purpose is to think more rather than just entertain.
That’s what HuffPost did when they (mistakently) published “40 Unforgivable Plot Holes”. Now normally, this is welcomed. BuzzFeed and Cracked.com LOVE breaking down our favorites to point out things we normally wouldn’t have seen passed our biased-filled gazes. Most of the time its entertaining.
Enter Star Wars fans.
They weren’t feeling that. They weren’t feeling that AT ALL. So they, (and this is my imagination at work) formed together like Voltron and DEBUNKED EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM. Not a few, not some…EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM.
Huffpost: .5; Star Wars Fans: 19 trillion (miles…the distance of a parsec…because WHY NOT?)
Check it out below. Be amazed. Be glad. Be thankful Star Wars fans CARE.
