Quote of the Day

From knight_ander on his LiveJournal:

My brother posted on his Facebook that he was going to do a SW marathon, which I marked as Liked. Later he updates that he’s watching ROTS and had to stop what he was doing because, even though he has seen the movie before there was a lot of stuff he didn’t remember.

Then one of his “friends” hauls out the “true Star Wars” fans don’t like that movie, TPM, AOTC made him sick, blah, blah, blah.

I had to step in and defend my fandom because, obviously, this person wasn’t a true Star Wars fan, at least to my definition. My response was fairly civil, I think. “True Star Wars fans know that there are SEVEN movies, and love them all like family.’ Yeah, a little snarky there, maybe, but that’s my stance and I’m sticking to it.

    His brother’s “friend” sounds like a typical bedwetter. They proclaim themselves “truer SW fans” than people who like the PT, and also “fans with standards.” They trash the PT, they say, out of “love” for SW — they love it more than Lucas, they say, because if he loved it as much as they do, he’d have made every movie “as good as ESB.”

    Myself, I’d have been less civil to that little asswipe.
