Why We Should Be More Open To The Changes In 'The Last Jedi'

Many people dive into movies and television shows they love and even try to embody some of the characters.

Why We Should Be More Open To The Changes In 'The Last Jedi'

I’ve always wondered why people get so emotional during movies and television shows. I will admit, there are quite a few shows and movies that have definitely made certain feelings rise in me, especially if it’s a movie or show that I’m really invested in. However, some people get so emotionally connected to some films to the point where they actually go insane or just lose their cool over some minor things.

Case in point, we all know that the new "Star Wars" movie, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," recently came out. Me being a huge "Star Wars" fan, I went to see it with a few of my friends. Prior to going, I heard some reviews that it was the worst "Star Wars" movie ever, that this movie was a disgrace to the franchise, blah blah blah. I also heard amazing reviews about the movie, so regardless, I was going to see it and enjoy it because of my love for the franchise.

Even though I respect other people’s opinions, some people’s reasoning for saying this movie sucked made no sense. For instance, one person stated that they hated the fact that Luke’s character seemed so dry (don’t worry, for those of you reading who haven’t seen it yet, this doesn’t spoil anything). It’s crazy how people think that Hollywood should do what they want them to do, and if a movie isn’t what that individual wanted, then the movie is instantly “trash” or “the worst movie ever made.” As fans of something, people should be more open to characters in movies and television shows developing in different ways, changing directions a bit, and sometimes becoming a completely different character. That’s what makes things unique: progression. But what do I know really, I’m just a nerd who really loves "Star Wars."

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
