Is anyone else sick of Star Wars? It’s great JJ Abrams brought the series back to its original glory and all, but weren’t things better when fans only had the unattainable beauty inherent in the original trilogy (on Laserdisc or VHS)? With all these flashy directors taking care of the new trilogy and the one-off Star Wars stories, the entire series feels kind of blah. Gone are the days when it was just nerds flocking around lightsabers and Death Stars; today, fandom includes not just the geeks but the guys and girls next door. As it becomes more geared towards the masses, aren’t you feeling tired of Star Wars?

Before you scream at your computer and proclaim your love for Golden Robot and his small friend, know it's okay not to love Star Wars like you used to. You’re not supposed to be amazed by the space battles, feel like you can be blue-milk aficionado Luke Skywalker, or have to stomach the franchise's descent into mainstream mediocrity. Let someone else carry the torch for this never-ending corporation masquerading as a film. You’ve done your time, now go live your life.
