Star Wars: The Force Awakens is basically a retread of the very first Star Wars movie, but with a multicultural cast and a female hero, as part of the continuing chickification of action films. The protagonist, Rey, who looks to be the daughter either of Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia (actually, she's now called "General" Leia since Princess is no longer PC), starts the movie knowing nothing about the Force. By the end of the movie she has her own lightsaber and is beating the villain, Kylo Ren, in a lightsaber duel. If you thought Luke Skywalker's becoming a Jedi over a long weekend on Dagobah strained credulity, this will only strain it even more.

Daisy Ridley, the actress who plays Rey, is a bit wooden (which she herself admits), but she is a woman so the politically correctness of her selection makes up for it. For much of the movie she is grimacing, with one tortured expression after another, kind of like Carly Fiorina speaking at a Republican debate, minus the giant crucifix. She is paired with Finn, an African American Stormtrooper, who defected from Captain Phasma, the female head of the stormtroopers. It's nice to see that the Imperials have diversified the stormtrooper ranks to make them look more like the Empire.

Captain Phasma, wearing cool looking chrome armor, is supposed to be a female Boba Fett character, but for all her appearances in the trailer she has very little on screen time in the film. The lead villain is Kylo Ren, who with his mask on has a ridiculous sounding voice that sounds like a speech impediment.

Rey and Finn spend much of the film running away from the stormtroopers and then preparing to attack the Starkiller base, which is another version of the Death Star. Yes, this is now the third Star Wars movie with a Death Star that is destroyed by tiny X-Wing fighters.

The battle scenes, whether in space or on the ground, are incredible, by the way, and are easily the best parts of the film. So is the new droid BB-8, who is a very cute soccer ball. Also good are the many of the scenes with Han Solo. Unfortunately, Solo gets gutted by Kylo Ren (who is his son, by the way), and his dead body falls down a shaft. It's a very poor death scene for a major character who dies without accomplishing anything of significance. Furthermore Han Solo was perhaps the best character in the series, depriving us of the best character leaving us with Princess (sorry, General!) Leia and C-3PO and others we would easily be grateful to be without. With Solo gone, the ethnic cleansing of the white male protagonists is basically complete.

Oh, and as for Luke? He has about 30 seconds in the film. Doesn't say a word. It is a very abrupt ending that is a very unfair tease to the viewers.

Overall this film is much better than The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, with great battle scenes, but it is too derivative of the original film and the new characters are not exactly inspiring.

Is Carly Fiorina's giant cross a genuine show of faith or cynicism?


It was hard not to notice that Carly Fiorina was wearing a cross around her neck at the Republican debate last night. In fact, it was rather a large one. The question is, was this a genuine show of faith, or a feeble attempt at pandering?

Trump supports affirmative action, corporate welfare, and "get along" with the Establishment


There has been a big question mark about the sincerity of Donald Trump's views, given that he has spent 99% of his adult life supporting liberal positions, including amnesty for illegal aliens, including saying at one point that Hillary Clinton was a really good secretary of state.

Trump alienates conservative base by calling Cruz "Unqualified" to be President


Donald Trump called Ted Cruz "unqualified" to be President. No, it wasn't because, like John McCain, Cruz was an American citizen born outside the US, as the tinfoil hat crowd insists disqualifies Cruz. Instead, it was because Trump alleges that Cruz acts like a "maniac" in the US Senate, in his often one-man effort to fight the GOP establishment.

Medicaid now paying to remove unwanted penises


What do you do if you're a poor man, and you want to remove your penis? If you're poor, you're barely making ends meet. You can't pay your rent, electricity, food bill, and still have enough money to get your penis removed. That's why the Obama administration is doing the right thing and having taxpayer funded medicare paying for penis extractions. The Times had a touching story about a gay AIDS infected man with a number of names: Jerome, Meeka, Kricket, and even "Thunderpussy", (who I will henceforth call "Mr. TP"), who desperately needed his penis removed in order convince himself that he is a woman.
