If you think Johnny Depp was a better Willy Wonka than Gene Wilder then frankly you’re probably not human just some communist reptilian in a flesh suit.
as a communist reptilian in a flesh suit i resent the implication i can’t properly appreciate the high camp of gene wilder
I felt this needed to exist.
a fan is never late, nor are they early. they arrive precisely when they mean to.

So my mum likes to tell this story of when I played the angel Gabriel in a nativity play. Apparently I was about 7 and while I was meant to be standing all serene and angelic in the background, I got into some kind of fist fight with another angel.
My mum calls it an embarrassment.
I call it committing to the role
i ship it
My most popular post has received a lot of arguments lately, so I figured I’d respond to the most common points people bring up.
to get a general gist of Queen Jamillia’s and Oola’s screen time, here are the scripts for Attack of the Clones (Jamillia is in 359 word scene) and Return of the Jedi (Oola is in scenes that add up to 275 words)
We are old enough to know we deserve more.
I’ve been watching Star Wars my whole life. I am someone who genuinely likes the prequels and can spout off random trivia just as well, if not better, than the next guy. I love the hell out of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and am psyched for Star Wars: Rebels. To date, there’s only two real Star Wars game franchises that I hate (The Force Unleashed series and The Old Republic series) but other than that games like Jedi Academy, Rogue Squadron, Shadows of the Empire, Galactic Battleground, Force Commander, Empire at War, Episode 1 Racer, freakin Star Wars Battlefront have pretty much influenced my life decision to make games and write stories that take place in detailed worlds. My dream was to work at Lucasarts before deciding to go independent. I cried seeing Star Wars Battlefront 3 last E3 stuff and pray that DICE doesn’t mess it up because the first two Battlefronts hold a solid chunk of my middle school and high school life. I think it’s safe to say that I’m a pretty big Star Wars fan.
This is the first time the issues of Leia’s costume have ever come up for me. This is the first time that I’ve ever been confronted with the fact that the two most prominent women of color are Oola and Queen Jamillia and the fact that you can’t even tell. This is really the first time I thought about George Lucas’ writing and directing in relations to women. It’s fucked up. I now take a real issue with how six of my favorite movies of all time have portrayed a certain (okay many) groups of people such as this. I literally had no idea nor really thought about it. I want this to be fixed. I want the next movies and all subsequent expanded universe material to get the Star Wars universe right and inclusive for all people because Star Wars is a magical experience that should be shared by everyone.
This is why argument 4 pisses me off so much, especially since I know this argument gets used and in more things than just Star Wars. I know of so many people that are like me too, who really love this franchise and want to see it made better. Anyone who ever used argument 4 to justify problematic elements in any franchise, should please do us all a favor and go away.
