“I’m telling you, it’s just a movie. “
– Mark Hamill, (Luke Skywalker) –


Good and evil is being mixed all up.

Someone or something is mixing good and evil so that at the end of the day all is evil.

This is the sin of impurity.

What a lust for more, for one Star Wars movie after another. The world in its indulgement of sin has a lust for impurity that just cannot be satisfied.

Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. (Ephesians 4:19)

Gwendoline Christie, who plays stormtrooper commander Captain Phasma, put the continued relevance of “Star Wars” down to its foundational mythology of good versus evil. I think it’s because the world we live in is a changing and evolving place that it retains the simplicity of those elements,” she said. – Yahoo

Aw, but hold-them-horses a second. Pull the reigns and stop the wagon in its tracks. Read the following quote very, v-e-r-y carefully.

“But it really resonates with what it is to follow your own human, dark, narcissistic tendencies, where that will take you.” – Yahoo

Ok, now all is impure and no matter how good a person might be there is this dark, narcissistic side that will overpower you and take you where it wills to take you.

Lovely self-defeated, self-pity, self-centered oozing with self-absorption is what all of Star Wars boils down to.

No wonder Jesus said, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. (Matthew 5:8) You can be sure Gwendoline Christie, who plays stormtrooper is not going to see a holy. selfless loving God when her dark, narcissistic side takes her to where God throws all his garbage.

Thanks be to God, through Jesus, that if a person hungers and thirsts after righteousness there is power to gain a pure heart – to become one single holy, selfless person. It an’t easy, as it is “hard” for the righteous to be saved, but it sure cleanses the hell out of a Jedi. 1And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” (1 Peter 4:18)

Yes, indeed, there is power for purity if you are willing to become a disciple of Jesus.

  “There hasn’t been a ‘Star Wars’ movie yet that has explored war the way ‘The Last Jedi’ has,” said Boyega. “It’s very messy. The categorizing of good and evil is all mixed together.” – Yahoo

“Good and evil is all mixed together”, “all mixed up”, a very true confession of sin concerning Star Wars The Last Jedi.

Now, if such confession of sin would be matched with repentance that would be a blockbuster worth witnessing. Because to the pure in heart, good and evil are not “all mixed together.”

Bonus:

The raw violence, the exploiting of war to make a buck …quite the present for the Prince of Peace on Christmas day.

As a reminder, Christmas used to mean Christ Mass – a time for church. reflection and awe-inspired worship that God came humbly to save mankind. Born in a manager, quietly preaching and healing is all being left in the dust of violence, mayhem, money, power and good no longer different from evil. This, my friend, is the heritage of Disneyland.

(hollywoodreporter.com)—Los Angeles (AFP) – The trailers have dropped, the frantic media tours have concluded and the phony war is over: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” finally begins the real battle Saturday at its glittering world premiere.
Hotter than one of Yoda’s root leaf curries, the movie is expected to cash in on 12 months of relentless hype with one of the biggest domestic opening weekends ever.
A galaxy of stars and lucky fans from near and far, far away will descend on downtown Los Angeles — the first moviegoers in the world outside of the production to see the eighth installment of the blockbuster space saga.
All eyes will be on the initial flood of social media reaction, encouraged by Lucasfilm, although the studio has embargoed detailed reviews until 9:00 am Los Angeles time (1700 GMT) on Tuesday.
Fans will have to be patient before heading to Twitter for the inevitable rhapsody of excited buzz, as “The Last Jedi” is the longest “Star Wars” movie ever, clocking in at 153 minutes.
That is about 10 minutes longer than “Attack of the Clones” (2002), although critics will be hoping the new movie doesn’t overstay its welcome, like that unloved second episode.
The premiere comes six days before the movie’s general release in US theaters, kicking off a run widely expected to be the most successful worldwide since 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
– Good versus evil –
Experts are predicting an opening weekend domestic box office of around $220 million, which would push it beyond “Jurassic World” (2015) into second place behind “Awakens” ($248 million).
The cast came together in LA with director Rian Johnson on Sunday to build buzz for “The Last Jedi,” which sees the return of the characters introduced in J.J. Abrams’s first entry in the rebooted trilogy.
Gwendoline Christie, who plays stormtrooper commander Captain Phasma, put the continued relevance of “Star Wars” down to its foundational mythology of good versus evil.
