Solo went under expectations, and every previous film was a critical and financial blockbuster (all making a billion!). And we're getting the first live action tv series which looks rad AF.
The prequels help fund and set the audience up for the new adventures of Luke Skywalker
Fund? There were a Pepsi marketing tool.
Doesnt mean we have to be happy about it
They aren't directing it. They are writing the script.
Oh he still will. It just won't be for a long time. I don't entirely get why people are surprised, though. It took 16 years to get Phantom Menace and 10 years to get The Force Awakens. I'm sure folks can wait around that for Rian Johnson's trilogy.
except China i think
i don't think anyone is arguing that they are not super popular - similar to the kardashians and bayformers movies
Your the one who is out of touch.
The fact you said “my youtube feed” defeats your entire argument.Your the one who is out of touch.
My YouTube feed for Game of Thrones these last 2 weeks have been negative unlike the positivity from previous seasons. Learn to read the room. Just do Google searches for game of thrones while filtering by date into one week chunks and you'll understand that this isn't a restera issue.
On a more general level, it boils down to this: different people like different things. Sometimes part of a movie might not click for a person. I think that’s fine. For example, Citizen Kane is an excellent movie, considered to be one of the best of all time. It was revolutionary and pioneered a number of things that became standard in the film industry while telling a solid, well written story. Despite all that, I really don’t enjoy it much.
Dark knight rises literally goes from full daylight to pitch black night in the time it takes to drive through a tunnel. If that shit happened on game of thrones we would have a 20 page thread about it and the cinematographer would have to issue a statement.
He still might, but I think someone would have to be on denial to not accept that his trilogy being pushed back until at least 2024 and possibly even further is not a good sign.
May I also point you to conversations with my parents, coworkers, and friends (obviously anecdotal lol, but talk to a couple of real people and you'll likely find some people that don't like this season), along with both users and critics on Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, Twitter as a whole, imgur, Reddit, Kotaku, Polygon, this site, and myriad others? There are many avenues for you to see that it's not just YouTube that is down on this fucking terrible season.The fact you said “my youtube feed” defeats your entire argument.
There is nothing more out of touch than youtube movie/tv talking heads.
If you go by YouTube you’d think marvel fans didn’t like Captain Marvel or Brie Larson.
Youtube is a massively out of touch hellhole.
I hate TLJ and I dont believe it is due to head cannon or me being alt right. Canto Bight is prequel levels bad. I thought the space Leia stuff was dumb. The low speed chase and the whole plot around it was dumb, Luke sensing darkness in Ben Solo and deciding to kill him in his sleep was insanely stupid. Hell right up until the end of RTJ Luke was still trying to save Vader and bring him back to the light. That is Luke's MO in the OT movies, it is crazy to me that he would try to kill Han and Leia's kid. I also liked Finn the most of the new characters in TFA and I felt like he didnt get to do a lot in TLJ. I think that there are plenty of reasons to dislike TLJ that have nothing to do with the reasons that you listed.
I can't believe this is still a talking point after The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, which worked in tandem to undermine and destroy the mythology and characterization in the OT.
The alt-right has a propaganda machine embedded in a ton of YouTube channels and people that are *very online* believe that what comes up in their YT feed reflects actual public opinion.
Most conflict in the movie is caused by characters' illogical or dumb actions, who are then repeatedly saved by plot armor. The First Order can't catch up the the Raddus when lightspeed exists, and aren't surrounding it with smaller ships to prevent escape. The entire reason the resistance gets wiped out is because Holdo gives no one hope even while advocating the value of hope, etc.

You haven't been around for the previous thousand Last Jedi threads?
