One of the best parts about being a Star Wars fan is being able to say bad things about Star Wars, your one true love. Out of every huge, life-changing science fiction and fantasy property, Star Wars is really the one thing that can take decades of abuse and still give back to the fans without any signs of being worse for the wear. Of course it’s not just fans of the series handing out Star Wars disses, there are plenty of online pundits and armchair film theorists who have paragraphs of vitriol to spew at a series whose popularity baffles them. No matter which camp you're in, you’ll love this collection of inflammatory things said about Star Wars.

Voteup the best disses that have been said about Star Wars, George Lucas, Jar-Jar, or anything else from that galaxy far, far away.

Who Said It: George Lucas

Yowza. It looks like fan boys aren't the only people who love to use hyperbole. In an interview with Charlie Rose, Lucas touched on selling his "children" to Disney, which he referred to as "white slavers." He later rescinded his statement.

Isn't it great that films can be interpreted in any way that you want them to be? (And by "great" we mean "awful.")

Who Said It: Matt Singer

In an interesting read on the idea that Star Wars has become less an enjoyable film series and more an exercise in diminished returns, Singer posits that fans of the series really only stick around to spew their vitriol somewhere.

Who Said It: Piers Morgan

In Piers Morgan's #EPICTAKEDOWN of the first The Force Awakens trailer (and the Star Wars series as a whole), he rambles on for about 6,000 words about how Star Wars is a tale as old as time and how The Force Awakens is nothing mare than repackaged gobbledegook - just like his article.
