SEDAGIVE?!

THX used to be short for "Thanks", as in "Thanks for making awesome movies with outstanding writing, characters, special effects, and theater standards to match!".

Now it still stands for "Thanks", but more like "Thanks for raping my past by retroactively bastardizing Star Wars and Indiana Jones".

This is just a guess...
