So we have a new star wars and after the “disappointment” of the prequels pretty much anything that doesn’t suck will be successful.  That said, having seen the movie it’s a whole lot of fun in all the right ways and I enjoyed it immensely.  This will be a movie that has significant rewatch value.  The only thing that troubles me about this movie is that it’s being seen as “diversity positive”.  While I won’t disagree that is the case when did Star Wars become more “diversity positive” than Star Trek?????   Star Trek has done more for diversity hell every issue you can think of than any SF series in history.

I am not bashing either franchise, they are both wonderful.  I have to question though that the guy promoting diversity positive star wars gave us the stripping scientist in Star Trek.  Sorry JJ but you can’t have it both ways.

Highway To Mars

Welcome to Martian Central, please take a ticket, the sheep ray will be with you shortly. Highway to Mars was created by Author Stefan Sawynok as an excuse to ramble his way through Science Fiction that he liked and to shine a light on things such as books that don't get covered all that often in fandom. Mostly covers British and American sci-fi but occasionally steps out to cover pieces from around the world. There is so much Sci-fi out there and so little time. :)
