Oscar Isaac To Critical Fans: Go Make Your Own Stuff

Up until now, Oscar Isaac has taken the road of the true Hollywood movie star, and above the fray, indicating that he was on the road to bigger and better things than Star Wars.

PoeDameron

Oscar Isaac runs to the nearest exit.

Today he dives into the muck, and tells critical fans to go make their own stuff.

Yahoo Entertainment reports:

Of course, some online critics had their emotions so stirred by The Last Jedi, they’re trying to raise the funds to remake the movie on their own terms. While Isaac didn’t address that campaign directly in our conversation, he did express enthusiasm at the prospect of people funneling their thoughts and feelings about Star Wars into creating their own stories set in their own galaxies far, far away.

“What I think is really special about the whole thing — particularly for people that really didn’t agree with where the story went — is that it’s often a great inspiration to do your own stuff,” he says. “Obviously, making your own Star Wars movie is a bit of a tough challenge, but at least from a narrative standpoint maybe you make your own thing and then show what you would want. Make what you would want to see.”

In fact fans already have been.  Multiple Star Wars fan films can be watched online.

And of course there is Jeff from World Class Bullshitters, who is making his own Star Wars parody comic book:

Stealing Solo: A Captain’s Parody

But at least one member of #TheFandomMenace is making his “own thing.”

His name is Ethan Van Sciver, and he is making a #CyberFrog comic book.  He will be reopening his indiegogo campaign for a short period of time, to help those who missed out on his first indiegogo campaign, which raised over a half-million dollars.  The new campaign will be launching August 29th.

Now if only the SJWs who have barnacled themselves to Star Wars, had the ability to go make their own stuff.

UPDATE:

John Talks has a different perspective:

  1. I have communicated with Twitter’s “Subversive Jake” about doing a video of his children’s book: “Rian The Boat Maker.” I’ve put my sons in charge of the project. So far, we’ve received a voice actor’s excellent recording for the dialogue. It’s precisely what we wanted. My youngest son is overseeing the audio production while my older son will be creating the CG animation using Blender. The animation will have the pages turn as the narrator reads this children’s story displaying the artwork produced by Subversive Jake.

    This is going to be our contribution to the efforts that are put out there. (The voice actor alone will make this video!)

  2. Itchy…

    To follow up on this article, and dovetailing — to some degree — with the 20 phases of the GeekerGate article from June. A comment on the phrase: “Go Make Your Own Stuff”

    From the updated GeekerGate:

    18. THE END – The new incarnation of the IP comes to an end. Since the majority of the fan base has abandoned it, there’s no more controversy or discussion about it. It’s over. The best case scenario is that the original IP is largely forgotten with the exception of a few die-hards who still carry the torch. The worst case scenario is that the new incarnation of the IP overwrites the original IP, and the original IP is forgotten altogether and overshadowed by the new incarnation in all future media mentions.
    19. MIGRATION – The remaining SJWs jump ship to devour a new IP that is popular, and undergoing a transitional phase.
    20. REBIRTH – The process begins anew.

    But more specifically, I came across a similar, but shorter, list. It’s from the SJW’s perspective. Check out Step Five in particular:

    The Cycle of SJW Inclusivity:
    STEP 1: We demand you include us in your space!
    STEP 2: We demand you change your space to accommodate us!
    STEP 3: We demand you stop harassing us because you don’t like our demands!
    STEP 4: We demand new laws or rules be enacted to remove “you” from the space “we’ve” created as you don’t fall in line with our vision of what the space should be!
    STEP 5: Why don’t you go off and create your own space if you don’t like it?
    STEP 6: We demand you NOT create your OWN SPACE after we have kicked you out of “our” space as you, having your own space, is inherently racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, panphobic, (insert endless smears here).
    (Rinse & Repeat)

    I didn’t submit this earlier simply due to its nature. It’s from the perspective of the social justice camp. It’s far less detailed, but it does pack a punch. And with the release of “Go make your OWN stuff,” I was moved to add this. Not sure if it can be incorporated into the 20 steps, but there’s the gist of it.

    • This is interesting because Oscar Isaac’s comments do fall in line with Phase 15 of the Geeker Gate:

      15. THE FINAL PUSH – Shill media entities, and rank and file SJWs tell long time customers to go find something else if they don’t like it anymore, in a last ditch effort to push critics out of the “community” once and for all. “Don’t like it, don’t buy it.”

      https://disneystarwarsisdumb.wordpress.com/2018/07/21/the-phases-of-a-geeker-gate-updated-plus-countermeasures/

      It also falls in line with Step 5 of what you’ve posted here:

      STEP 5: Why don’t you go off and create your own space if you don’t like it?

      That is essentially what Oscar Isaac is saying, and I hadn’t connected the dots until you posted this comment.

      As far as whether it can be incorporated, I’ll have to contemplate the matter. It may be useful. Thank you!

      • Thank you! I appreciate that comment, Itchy.

        These SJWs are nothing if they aren’t repetitive. Comic Books, Ghost Busters, Star Trek, gaming, … the list grows daily.

        But for the sake of chat, let’s look at “19. Migration – The remaining SJWs jump ship to devour a new IP that is popular, and undergoing a transitional phase.” It’s not difficult for me to imagine a near future where SJWs and alt-left media will band together to make outlandish claims, such as van Sciver’s CyberFrog belongs to them, and that all such “fun” media must receive a stamp of approval before publication.

        Of course that sounds ridiculous. Now. But describe to the “me” of 50 years ago what 2018 would be. Disbelief is all I would have offered. I do, however, believe SJWs have set their sights on an ultimate power grab. Do not doubt the power of the tantrum. Older babies get “triggered”. And eventually the state, like a haggard parent, will comply just to silence the noise.

  3. At first, reading the headline, I was disappointed in Isaac and expected another self entitled Boyega-style comment to fans.

    To be fair though, he’s far more careful and diplomatic in his wording- it acknowledges the backlash and encourages more fan films. It’s not the same tone that the unhinged Chuck Wendigs of LucasFilm use. On this occasion, I think the title’s implication is a little unfair to Isaac to be honest.

    • I agree. I’m as critical as anyone of the new Disney trash (Rogue One excepted) but I don’t think Oscar’s intent here was malicious. He seems to be acknowledging fan’s suffering and encouraging us to do something constructive with it, and he doesn’t insult fans. I think he’s still a class act.

      • I see each Disney/LucasFilm like my old Canadian Reserves sergeant. During our general military training there was nothing we could do to please our sergeant; everything made him upset. This went on for about 10 straight weeks. Suddenly, he lightens up. On occasion he’d do no more than give us a wry smile or laugh at an overheard joke. Well! The change in the men was impressive to behold. The entire platoon surrounds him (who they absolutely hated days before) with “Can I offer you a cigarette?” “Need a light?” “Wanna go drinking later?” They then walked away saying, “He’s not a bad guy after all!” “Yeah, sarge’s alright!”

        LucasFilm has adopted this tactic, from all appearances. “Man babies,” “I owe nothing to the male fans,” … plus the measured hate from the “Chucks” and the “Pablos” and you’ve got a hot mess my sergeant would be proud of. An occasional “kindness” and “approval,” in my mind, is measured, tactical and serves the same purpose.

    • That may be, and I was about to reconsider. But in the end he’s fulfilling what the The Phases of a Geeker Gate predicts; he’s telling the fans to go make their own stuff, no matter how kindly he may frame the sentiment.

      • I don’t fully agree; he’s not saying to fans “Leave SW and make your own stuff”, he’s saying “Make your own SW stuff.”

        Your phase 15 spells it out with “SJWs tell long time customers to go find something else if they don’t like it anymore, in a last ditch effort to push critics out of the “community” once and for all.“

        If they’re making their own SW (like fan filmmakers har done) they’re still part of the community, and will still be just as critical.

        I see your point and even agree *somewhat*, but I feel there IS an important distinction here.

          Here’s where I agree with you insofar as we can bring Itchy’s well-balanced countermeasures to life:

          https://disneystarwarsisdumb.wordpress.com/2018/07/21/the-phases-of-a-geeker-gate-updated-plus-countermeasures/

          As long as this “community” makes new films/books/comic-books/novels/ either based on SW directly, or on some new IP/IPs, while keeping a sharp eye on the twisted messages entangled in the new movies (having finally said a final farewell to the old IP), then we’ll have the best of both.

          LucasFilm belongs to Disney now. Kathleen Kennedy has chosen to kill it with “get-woke/go-broke” politics. My guess is: to divide the community. (See Rian Johnson’s video on what he thinks is an awesome movie). Okay. I’m fine with that. “Woke” has damaged every IP it has touched*. Kennedy must know this. From now on there should be those who calmly, unemotionally expose the “wokeness” of all future LucasFilm SW releases so that parents can make an enlightened choice. LucasFilm will not cease tucking “wokeness” into “adventure” movies.
