Star Wars: The Last Jedi

When the all male hen party that is the men's rights movement has their most paranoid notions validated by one's art, one is probably doing it wrong.

This is a spectacularly beautiful film, which has several interesting aspects. It even goes as far as asking some hard questions about the nature of valor and when a victory comes at too high a cost. However, all of those are tossed in favor of a Mary Sue fanfic with a budget and a message: 

History, culture and wisdom can teach us nothing. Burn all the olds.

A brief synopsis:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, space was riven asunder by a visually spectacular slap fight between tactically inept emo Space NAZIs and incompetent Red Guards in Space, either of whom could have ended the film two hours early if they'd had a junior high school chess player advising them on tactics.

There is an important Aesop in the film though. 
Parking regulations are serious business.
