Hoping someone can expand and provide some more context for some thoughts i've been having lately. For example in this clip from the latest mandalorian(don't watch if you don't want spoilers). The defeat of the empire and the second death star was originally a simple happy(if not lazy) ending to a series of adventure films. Now it's always kind of, for lack of a better term, deconstructed.

My earliest memory of this is Clerks. if memory serves that one was actually a conversation about the first death star blowing up and how it made luke skywalker a murderer or something. But it was supposed to be a half joking kind of thing. Now that ironic reflexivity seems to have totally replaced any kind of genuine sentiment.

Now look I know this is easily explained by shitty writing and copyright licenses. The property of star wars makes money so you have to find a way to keep milking it and since people already own their own copies of the original, it has to be sequels that don't depart too far from the original or else it it'll become something else and possibly not make as much money. But my point is that it creates a very actual shadow of circular recurrence over the society thats watching this. A sort of cynical defeatism where nothing can ever get better and disrupting the status quo will only ever lead you back to the original struggle anyway. Things can't end, so things can't change.

Is this the same premise as the Book from late Mark Fisher, what's it called again ? A yes Capitalist realism !?
Stop consuming big budget culture industry that is stuck on a depressing repeat because of capitalism. You can divert your attention away from that, and towards smaller budget production or even just indie artists that tell better stories. When you find something you like tell other people about it. I know that the old established IPs about space operas have turned to shit where people suffer as much as today but with better technology. Find the new IPs that aren't about dogshit futures. There's even a thread >>8338 for this in the /hobby/ catalogue already.

Basically as cliches and tropes arise they get noticed and after a while it's "not cool" to lie them, so they get deconstructed or subverted or whatever to be 'hip and cool'.

That's the gist of it.
