Star Wars fans. I can’t stand Star Wars fans. They consistently do nothing but whine about the prequel trilogy while insulting the creator of their religion. Never mind the fact that the Original Trilogy was never that good. A New Hope was not a good movie: it’s character’s were archetypical and simplistic, there was no moral complexity or greater meaning in the work whatsoever, the script was a special kind of awful, and the special effects, which were the saving grace of it 30 years ago are laughable by today’s standards. It is not a good movie in the same way that the Godfather is a good movie or in the way that the Brothers Karamazov is a good book. And to hear fan boys nostalgically gush about it based upon seeing it in the theatre when they were six years old really does begin to wear thin.
The anime fan base also has some pretty disturbing tangents as well. And that’s just in reference to the people who treat it like a drug in an effort to escape the cold realities of life. That’s not even getting into the more extreme facets. It definitely doesn’t help that the mainstream anime fan base is pathetically self loathing and insecure.
