Star Wars: The Last Boomer

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

So still no spoilers here, but as a Gen Xer I have to say that the generational overtones between the Boomers and the Millennials in the new Star Wars flick make me chuckle. Luke as an old crazy guy is just…appropriate. That it was the next generation that helped drive him over the edge is…spot on. Where have you gone Master Obi-Wan? Our galaxy turns its’ lonely eyes to you.

    In this, TLJ continues the good work begun by TFA: “Millennials are destroying the world because narcissistic Boomers broke up the family. That’s The Force Awakens in a nutshell.”

    I saw TLJ last night and will write a full report when I can (no promises on timeline). But my nutshell review is: All the small things are lousy and all the big things are great. I care about both so I’m torn.

    The correct ranking is:

    Empire
    New Hope
    Force Awakens
    Last Jedi
    Return of the Jedi
    Rogue One

    As Mr. Greg just said, indeed because my generation (Boomers) disengaged from our children created the havoc we see today. When we choose to engage appropriately (Luke), we can make a constructive difference.
