Osservatore Romano Pans New Star Wars Film With Anemic Review

Edit:  at last.  Probably the insufficiently Catholic Stephen Greydanus is responsible for the review.  And even more unfortunately, if you're looking for any deeper moral insights or a condemnation of the film's pantheistic, Gnostic universe, don't bother with Osservatore.  Why does anyone read it, really?

Osservatore is probably even more anti-Catholic than the LA Times.

[LA Times] An organ of the Vatican has slammed the new "Star Wars" film as a thorough disappointment because its villains are not sufficiently evil.

The Vatican's daily newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, has given a dismal review to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," even as it breaks box-office records.

  1. That's a major problem with Harry Potter, too: It blurs the distinction between good and evil, promoting ends-justify-means, relativistic morals.

    1. There was no blur. Harry Potter promoted evil as good.

  2. That's funny because Osservatore promotes evil as good!

    1. I suppose there are more genuinely evil villains in Rome so they have a better perspective.

  4. I think Harry Potter got away with it because it promoted evil as good with the excuse that it was for a good purpose.
