Vatican Paper Slams ‘Star Wars’ For Failing To Represent Evil
The Vatican daily newspaper L’Osservatore Romano slammed “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for being “confused and hazy.” It also didn’t like the bad guys in the film.
It said that it “fails most spectacularly” in its representation of evil. Apparently, the Vatican is a big fan of old school Emperor Palpatine!
As to why the pic supposedly fails spectacularly in its representation of evil, the caustic critic claims that “Darth Vader and above all the Emperor Palpatine were two of the most effective villains in [the sci-fi] genre of American cinema.” But the film’s new villain, the Darth Vader-inspired Kylo Ren, is slammed as “insipid;” while Supreme Leader Snoke – the Emperor Palpatine-like character, is called “the most serious defect of the film,” with his representation described as “awkward and tacky.”
Oh great, the Vatican wants more EVIL. Clearly the butt-hurt Vatican knows what evil is.
Oh the irony.
