Perhaps they are the smart ones
Ok, I just watched this movie. I'd put it about on par with Return of the Jedi.
I appreciated the fact that it took some bold risks, and corrected the problem I had with Force Awakens. Unfortunately, the backlash it's been getting is EXACTLY why so many sequels nowadays are direct rehashes.
Oh and surprisingly, I actually kinda liked Rose.
The amount of hate this movie receives online is ridiculous.
Completely agreed, I must be in the minority since I loved it despite not being a hardcore Star Wars fan. I liked it a lot more than Force Awakens because this one at least tried to be fresh. It was not a perfect movie, to be sure, but it kept me guessing what would happen next the whole time. I can understand some being disappointed, but to the people saying it was THE worst film in the series: that's just absurd, is it not?
It is absurd. The mob mentality of the internet is clearly the worst aspect of it. I'm a pretty die hard Star Wars fan, and I just find most of the complaints the exact opposite complaints of The Force Awakens detractors. Bottom-line, some people will NEVER be happy.
I was one of those Force Awakens detractors, so I was quite happy to see them do something different.
I mean, if you don't like the movie, that's cool. It's not perfect, and everyone is entitled to an opinion.....
however, going on and on and on and on and on about how the movie "ruined your childhood" or whatever is just childish and petty. Spraying constant negativity day after day doesn't help anyone. It just fuels similar behavior elsewhere.
Honestly, I wish the "comment" section on Facebook could be "disabled".
You just don't get it. My life has been ruined since 1983 when TDO moved the goat in PotC 18 inches to the left.
What I want to know how are numbers doing on DVD sells against Jumanji and Justice League? Has anyone bother to check?
Amazon shows Last Jedi in first place as current best sellers............
