Patton Oswald’s Star Wars Filibuster

Television is becoming so much more interesting because it has the ability to comment and contribute to popular culture, allowing it to fit into the larger spectrum of our lives in a way that films cannot. This clip, aside from being an awesome performance by Oswald is a good example of that.

Movies these days suck for a lot of reasons, but to their credit, they’re challenged with transporting us to a separate reality that prohibits the acknowledgement of seemingly insignificant cultural blips like the much anticipated screenplay for Star Wars Episode VII.

Culture is speeding up.  The stories we tell are becoming relevant for shorter and shorter periods of time and while film will always have a place in our lives, it’s far less equipped to deal with this dynamic.

Thanks for the share Dave.
