Hey guys! Here’s the solution for those who can’t deal with the constant fear of being punched in the face for admitting they don’t like Star Wars. Just so you know you’re not alone!
Have you noticed that a strange situation has happened? This movie simply can’t be disliked.
You must be silent about your true opinion and pretend that everything’s cool. Let’s call it the “totalitarianism of a popular culture.”
There’s nothing wrong or unbelievable with the fact that some people actually like this franchise. And those who are really true fans aren’t limited to geeks and freaks. Still, those who love the franchise need to understand and forgive the rest of us. Maybe in the whole history of pop culture, there’s no case when public opinion held such a strong pressure over the entire population. But if you’re someone who doesn’t like Star Wars, we have a true present for you! What if we tell that you can try to watch something that’s known as Star Wars but at the same time is not Star Wars?
In the world, there are two Gucci (or any other famous brands) brands: the original and the fake. And this isn’t about the true and fraud, it’s about authentic and “stylized” brands. The last are not just fake; they’re also different and unique. Although the fake brand is made based on the original, it takes a whole new meaning and significance in a cultural context.
Even as a joke, it’s difficult to find fake clothes that can be appreciated by people with good taste. To explain to them that this is your manifestation of irony will be extremely difficult. However, with filmmaking it’s just the opposite.
In the twentieth century, the Turks were doing rip-offs not only for the fashion brands but also of the big Hollywood bestsellers. Their ambition was so great that within their popular cinema they also released their own version of Star Wars. This work is a stunning example of not only a “bad movie,” but also of the national cinema in general. In addition, it says something about the reception of a Western movie by “exotic countries” viewers, as well as the popularity of Star Wars in general. The Man Who Saved the World is a Turkish Gucci in the cinema industry. This movie is a concentrated psychedelia and surely needs to be watched if you want to rethink the whole Star Wars phenomenon as a cultural aspect.
And then there’s the best possible Star Wars rip-off called: Holiday Special. It tells a story about Han Solo and Chewbacca arrives on the Wookiee home planet to celebrate Life Day. They are followed by agents of the Empire while visiting Chewbacca’s mother and father. The empire spoils the party. The movie was shown on TV just once. It hasn’t been sold or officially distributed. George Lucas didn’t have any participation in the movie and later bought the copyrights for it in the hope that this part of the franchise will soon be forgotten.
But fans of the cult movie remember and will never forget, mostly because it’s impossible to forget a masterpiece. Like the “Turkish Star Wars”, Holiday Special takes a lot of material from A New Hope and shows Star Wars from a fresh and unexpected angle. The Man Who Saved The World does the same function for us to learn the wonder of the franchise.
