Yeah, because having Oscars means everything
I'll be cynical all I want. Don't tell me to change my opinion or tone about this. I have just as much a right to like someone's work as you have to dislike it.
And therefore I have the right to tell you to stop all I want, under your rule. I'm not arresting you, I'm not telling you it's illegal to express your mind, I'm just saying your perspective is skewed by your negativity.
I certainly agree an Oscar doesn't mean everything, but generally speaking Oscar-nominated films are good films, no matter how biased the nominations can be. The guy wrote the final Toy Story film, which most people, including those "unfounded" Oscar jurors, found to be of the highest quality. If you think otherwise that's fine, but hear this:
I can change my opinion any time I want, you could even change it. I don't put emotional attachment onto my perspective because it can be wrong, and history tells us that of people. I try to act on what I know, which is that Disney can create quality films, and generally treats its licenses with care. The Muppet's The Avengers, Pixar
films have shown them to have top-quality abilities, those that exceed the short filmography of George Lucas. Most auteurs learn from their mistakes and their triumphs, George Lucas created Star Wars as an ideas man, but now it is time for him to learn from his mistakes and pass it on to the triumphant Walt Disney Corporation. Under a group of well-minded people Star Wars has a lot of potential. If you have reason to believe otherwise, change my opinion, but at the end of the day the only way we will know whether there was any worth in making Episode 7 is by watching it.
