Essay On “Love, Hate, & Geek Culture”

Thomas Storai on Midichlorian Center posted an essay on the prequels and geek culture:

And so how do these people have to do anything with the Geek culture? It’s exactly those “fans” fueled geek culture with hate towards the Prequels, it’s those people dictated what to like and what not to like. The problem with geek culture is that people in there spend most of their time hating on something rather than focusing on what they love, they don’t listen to other’s opinions and state that their opinions is the rightful one and the only one that exists so discussion is not possible as they take the biggest space on the Internet trolling people who love things they hate.

    Yep I absolutely agree with this article. It is a shame what kind of ignorant morons that spawned out of hate of a particular set of movies. I personally am completely fed up with this hate of the PT and Lucas. All this hate really is just about not getting the films they wanted or Lucas caving in and meeting the demands of certain fans.

    Now James Cameron weighs in on TFA and since his opinion doesn’t line up with the fan boys own opinions, he now too has become worthless in their eyes. It makes me sick when Lucas gets bashed. Now Cameron getting bashed for giving his opinion? And a very valid opinion at that? This lunacy is just too much! I know everyone is entitled to their opinions, but there are opinions out there that carry more weight than others. This is where Cameron’s opinion is at. Whether his work is unique or imaginative doesn’t take away from the fact that what he said was true in regards to TFA.

    Another thing I find funny is how much CGI was involved with TFA. It was A LOT! On other forums way before the film was even released, when they were blabbering about practical effects and what not, I even said that this is just a marketing tactic and there will be plenty of CGI in the film. I also stated that when that happens the people that whined about the PT being all CGI will excuse the CGI in TFA. And sure enough, it’s happening as we speak. But there are some out there that think that TFA was nothing but practical effects. It seems that Disney was able to pull the CGI wool over there eyes. Because anyone in their right mind who thought that a 2015 sci-fi action film WOULDN’T have any CGI in it, have to be the most certifiable people on the planet.

    But as anyone here already knows that the PT will never get the respect it has truly earned. We will have to hear all the rantings and ravings of butt hurt troll boys spewing the same uninformed and incorrect, as well as ignorant rantings about why the “majority” hates the PT and why the “minority” is wrong for loving them. 😦

      As if the amount of CGI in a film determines whether it’s ‘good’ or ‘bad’. It’s about story, it always has been, and in particular a good story is always about relationship.

        Yep. Unfortunately some folks only see the PT as “all CGI” Or they see it as “all boring political talk” It makes me wonder if people that don’t like the films actually understand what the movies are about?

        I seriously believe that some folks actually believe that Lucas just sat behind a computer while making the PT and punched in a couple of keys and,
        PRESTO! Out pops a movie.

    I don’t think they will ever mature. Some of the characteristics – refusal to admit they just might be wrong but…they really depend on their back up boys – the proudly self-named geeks. Even now – you can just sense it, almost smell it when a response to something flattering about the prequels is thrown out there, as in the rumors about Hayden possibly returning. Lots of positive yes, please countered immediately with a never and a no forever with zilch explanation. They just love to throw the mud, makes them feel cool.
