    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ‘Let Star Wars die, kill it if you have to’

    The 2010s will be remembered as the decade the big-budget blockbuster irreparably changed. More so than ever the latest blockbusters are created not in the minds of the director or even the empty sacks greedy executives can’t wait to fill with the dollar bills received from box office earnings, but the bedrooms of often-privileged fans with a voice loud enough to come out on top in the social media hell-scape…
