A disturbance in the Force: Decoding the fan response to ‘The Last Jedi’

Box Office Buzz

tempt-trailer_1It’s now been about a month since “The Last Jedi” opened in theaters, and I feel like the dust is finally starting to settle a bit surrounding this surprisingly polarizing entry in the Star Wars franchise. By now everyone has probably decided how they feel about the film, one way or the other, and I don’t really want to stir up the controversy again. 😉 This article isn’t designed to be another discussion of the film itself; rather, I’d like to take a look at the overall fan reaction to this film, which has been absolutely fascinating to watch.

    Last Jedi isn’t the best Star Wars movie but it was pretty entertaining. Fans have been yearning for E7-E9 for decades and when they finally are given what they yearn for, they are ungrateful and focus too much on flaws in the films. That’s how I see it. These fans have too high expectations, Star Wars is just a movie, it isn’t the re-appearance of Jesus 🙂
