More Of The Same From EW & ThinkGeek

Reader David Strohmenger forwarded along this eyeroller from Entertainment Weakly, a publication I’ve boycotted since 2002:

I just wanted to let you know that the Bullseye page of the latest Entertainment Weekly takes a shot at the prequels. There is a picture from the Super Bowl commercial with the caption ‘Finally a Star Wars prequel we can get behind.’ I guess I shouldn’t be surprised; this is the same magazine that gave the Clone Wars movie an ‘F’.

The funny part is its online arm EW.com has been a happy part of the Clone Wars Booster Club for some reason.

And while perusing ThinkGeek’s site, I noticed that when you run a search for Star Wars, there’s a box at the top of the page that says “Han’s equation: Ep 4-6 > Ep I-III.” Go check it out yourself. I’d never noticed that before and it pretty much ensured that I’ll never buy anything from those guys unless and until they 1) remove it and 2) apologize. Fans of the whole saga have to fight for respect; we’re not gonna get it otherwise.

    EWeakly is a POS publication that outright lies about whatever it has chosen as “uncool.” Like, it perpetuated the blatant, shameless lie that “The Matrix” outgrossed TPM. And, in its 2005 year-end special, it ran an inexcusable and tasteless cartoon of Lucas holding a limp-bladed lightsaber, then sneered that “after all these years, we find out that Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader after some old dude made him paranoid and he fell into lava.” Did the nimrods even SEE the damn movie?

    When “X-Files” attempted to replace Mulder with Doggett, aka Poochie, EWeakly — an anti-Duchovny/anti-Mulder stronghold that was only too happy to push Poochie as the best thing since sliced bread — lied that the show was “doing as well as ever without Mulder.”

    I wouldn’t use that rag to paper-train my puppy. If I had one, that is.

    No, we won’t get respect unless we fight for it. It sucks, but it’s true.
