The Last Jedi Hate Thread (contains spoilers)

With the rottentomatoes audience consensus now having dropped to 49%, I feel it might be an apt time for this, and useful to have a place for people to vent.

The more I reflect on this movie, the more I find that I hated it. I enjoyed it okay while I was watching it, but the more time that passes, the more that my brain actually tries to think about it, the more crappy this movie becomes to me. The bad comedy, the ridiculous plot holes, the utter disregard for continuity, the ham-fisted political messages, bad plot, bad writing, bad dialogue, bad acting. At a couple of points, it practically becomes a spoof of itself. One podcaster compared it to the sub-par writing and direction on the latest season of The Walking Dead, and I can totally see the comparison.

This thread will contain spoilers.

Here's a video! Warning, contains cursing:

Meh, the franchise was ruined for me by the prequels. I treat the movies that come out as lazy popcorn movies made to sell merchandise. I'll watch episode 9 and hold out some hope for the films after they put the skywalkers to rest.

Re: The Last Jedi Hate Thread (contains spoilers)

lol that Jody guy is hilarious. Here's a video of just him reviewing the film. Best part is at 3:30 where Jody reacts to a video of himself from before, predicting how AWESOME Last Jedi is going to be!



This one is also pretty funny:

Re: The Last Jedi Hate Thread (contains spoilers)

I went and saw it opening night.
Loved it.

I haven't been to see it again, but I really have no beef with it at all.
Sure, the Snoke take down was a little less dramatic than I would have expected it to be, but the shock value was through the roof for me. Rey and Kylo throwing down in Ming's chamber? Cool! STAR WARS!!!

Leia using the force? I geeked so hard, I fell out of my seat.

Jumping to hyperspace to destroy a dreadnaught? The silence vacuum in the theater was AWESOME. Opening night, packed house, and the only sound you could hear was ME saying "whoa".

I thought Luke went out like a boss. His final scene got me a little choked up. The two suns brought me back to the first time I watched IV and I just loved it all.

I think there's a sort of "group think" thing that happens with a lot of things nowadays. Whether it's because of aggregate sites like RT or Metacritic, sounding boards like Reddit or this place, or it's just the way things are now, I find that whenever a movie/book/TV show/game/etc is generally well received that there is ALWAYS an upswell of critics that will do everything they can to rail against the positive "norm". Eventually, it's picked apart by people that used to at least LIKE it, and many can be convinced that it's simply mediocre because the "experts" said it was.
