The Five Types of Force Awakens Trailer Reaction

The latest trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" dropped during Monday Night Football last night. We here at Cinema Romantico could provide a link to it and we could provide a full breakdown of it and we could offer our personal reaction to it...but what's the point? You've seen it. Or heard about it. And formed your own reaction to it or to the reaction of it. There was a lot of reaction to it out there last night on the Twitters. Yet despite so much reaction, the majority of it is really just the same. Let us explain.

Reaction One: "I don't give a fuck about 'Star Wars.'"
Translation: I don't give a fuck about "Star Wars" and I'm letting you know I don't give a fuck about "Star Wars." Because I don't. I don't fucking care about "Star Wars." Do you hear me? DO YOU HEAR ME??? I DON'T CARE ABOUT STAR WARS. THAT'S WHY I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT IT. AT ALL. BECAUSE I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT STAR WARS. I'M BETTER THAN YOU.

Reaction Two: "It's just a trailer."
Translation: You're taking something seriously that I don't take seriously and because I don't take it seriously I refuse to accept the fact that anyone else takes it seriously. (Reader's Note: This is the same sorta person fancying him or herself a modern day Copernicus for proffering the most reductive phrase in the English language - "It's just a game".)

Reaction Three: "Boycott 'Star Wars.'"
Translation: I can only find faux-pleasure in belittling the joy of others.

Reaction Four: "What's 'Star Wars?'"
Translation: Psssst. I actually do know what "Star Wars" is and I'm merely masquerading as if I don't know in order to cleverly convey my disinterest it. But it's humorous, see, because I'm acting as if I don't know what this very, very famous film franchise is. Ha ha! Right? Funny!

Reaction Five: "I was probably gonna see it anyway."
Translation: "I was probably gonna see it anyway."

What about the scorned lover approach: excited about the possibilities, but cautious from having been lied to in the past.

True. This reaction also exists. And is a reaction I can understand. I whole-heartedly confess this post exists only because of the obligatory rain-on-the-parade social media reactions that are so commonplace these days.
