Golden Mantella

This frog is ticked off that he wasn’t consulted on the directorial choices of the latest movie in his favorite series. How dare they make make creative character choices while working within variants of the same mythic narrative structure as all of the other movies, especially after how lambasted they were for the previous film being so duplicative of others in the series? And the new aliens just piss him off. It’s a completely different galaxy for crying out loud. Everyone knows that galaxies are populated by exactly 153 alien races. Mostly, though, he is upset that $23 (including a medium size drink) doesn’t give him the right to dictate the direction of a billion dollar franchise.

He’s going to see the movie two more times, just to verify that he’s well and truly angry, and then it’s off to Reddit!
