Pretty sure a handful of them were really hoping for it
RJ is one of the most consistently strong working directors today. It would be shocking if he did something that even was close to bad at this point.
I'm totally confused. Are you a Book of Henry fan?
People like to single out the stuff Rian has worked on, especially since TLJ. (I know some people didn't like Fly before that, too.)It's weird that Rian Johnson gets the blame for Fly and not the people who actually wrote it (or for that matter, Vince Gilligan). Among that group Rian would have the least amount of input in making that episode.
Weirder still is the level of pure hated aimed at that episode. I don't get it at all.
He also directed Ozymandias. Was that a shitty episode too?
I love how quickly this post came after all the "he would've had nothing to do with writing Fly" replies
HE DID NOT WRITE FLY. HE DIRECTED IT.
Rian Johnson did not write the script for Fly, he directed the episode.
The their to last episode. And the Fly has a lot going on, all character stuff and directing though. And RJ directed it.
"At least Epstein had the GOOD GRACE to KILL HIMSELF*."
The fact you call him a cunt because he made a space wizard kids movie that didn’t fit what you wanted says more about you than it does him.
Yep. I have never encountered someone who had hatred for him that didn’t come across like an unhinged crazy person. Like I truly wonder how self aware they are for how embarrassing they come across.
Let's be fair, though. A good whodunnit is all about twists and turns and subversions.Despite me absolutely *hating* TLJ I can acknowledge Rian Johnson is a fantastic director. He directed Ozymandias for crying out loud and even made a no-action bottle episode fun to watch.
His writing leaves me wary though. Looper was a great movie but definitely not because of its writing.
And after the universal praise of this film’s “twists and turns” I can’t help but think of the somewhat similar praise of TLJ’s subverting expectations. I hope I’m wrong though; how can you go wrong with a cast like this?
Having a supporting role here and there isn’t what he’s talking about. It still stands that RJ has never had a lead PoC in any of his films or projects. Which is depressing to those hoping that we’ll live to see a non-white protag in a SW movie (not even touching the homogeneity of the creative process behind these movies).Meagan Goode in Brick? Lakeith? We’ll skip Boyega since that is clearly the point of contention here.
Either way, you’re gonna need to establish a pattern to make this one work. Right now the pattern is not on your side.
But imo, you are aiming at the wrong person, Star Wars wise.
