In the first place, this isn't about anyone squatting and taking a shit in the middle of a room. And why would you bring up the Star Wars prequels on the Captain Marvel board? Jokes aside, you aren't making a valid analogy. Old people finding it impossible to understand modern movies, music, fashion, etc. is nothing new. There were older people who sounded just like the OP, saying the sort of things he's saying about Captain Marvel, about E.T., Ghostbusters, and the rest of the films he cherishes as classics.
This has nothing to do with anyone being "woke" or "progressive." Captain Marvel is not laden with message. It isn't a paean to feminism. It doesn't offer up any politics. It's a fantastic action movie that weaves seamlessly into the tapestry that is the MCU, and if you or anyone else doesn't like it, so be it. Assuming anything about the attitudes, values, politics, or age of those who like it is asinine. I doubt you can glean anything whatsoever about me from the fact that I loved the movie, though I'm sure you think otherwise.
Your oversensitivity seems to be clouding your thinking. It's simply a matter of logic. If some whippersnapper criticizes the tastes and habits of an old duffer, the criticism shouldn't be accepted at face value simply because it's a youngster with a presumably fresh, new perspective doing the criticizing. The reverse is also true. And who says it's impossible for older people to "understand" movies like Captain Marvel? You? It's this kind of puerile thinking that leads uncritical morons into taking the likes of AOC and Beto O'Rourke seriously. Many jockers reflexively deflect all criticism of them as the cantankerous grumblings of old farts who are incapable of seeing outside their grumpy old boundaries. Intersectionalism at its worst...
I'd like to laugh at my so-called oversensitivity, but that's the norm now. Anyone who points out another person's thin-skinned nature is immediately called thin-skinned. And of course, now it's somehow tied into politics, but in such a nonsensical way. Because uneducated masses have rallied around equally uneducated politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Beto O'Rourke, somehow anyone young is puerile for shaking his head and laughing at a post as ludicrous as the one that began this thread?
Let me clarify-- age is immaterial, and anyone young or old can understand and enjoy Captain Marvel, or any other work of art. Meanwhile, those who come along and say "kids of this generation are so stupid, and can't appreciate true art, and anyone who likes Captain Marvel must be **fill-in-the-blank-with-whatever-political-stance-you-hate** are the insensitive ones who can't accept that opinions other than their own may be equally valid, especially when it comes to an opinion on art.
