You can't dismiss that is pretty much an attack on people disliking the movie, right? Portraying all our dislikes as "petty details".

Thats not at all what I said ? I already made it clear what I ment by that in another post.

I also didn't say that all complains about the movie are "petty details". I said that I don't understand why people act like small unexpalined details would ruin the entire (fragile) logic of Star Wars.

As someone who has most of the Disney released content, there are a lot of contradictions between themes and ideas that have been created in the Disney verse and the last Jedi. One example is that Poe Damions parents were rebel pilots which is why he's loyal to the resistance/rebellion, yet RJ completely disregards this when he makes Amilyn (who is portrayed quite differently to the other content she has appeared in) believe that Poe is a traitor even though she would have known his parents... like WOW...

well, we can't be really sure that Holdo met Poe's parents unless I missed something when searching for that. I think her suspicion is justified given the circumstances. Poe, in a way, is a traitor since he started a mutiny against her. But I also noticed how Holdo wasn't the oddbal was described to be in the Leia book. Maybe she canged as she got older? These things are the result of the movie being written so early into the Canon's lifespan. I doubt Disney cares much about those inconsistencies tho, since like 80% of the audience doesn't read the EU stuff. 

 

I'd like to also share another "subjective" observation with you. When I saw TLJ at the cinema, it was the first time in a long time that I saw people start getting up and leaving half-way through a film. They never returned. Mind you, this is a Star Wars film. On the film (finally) ending, only 1 person -- a young man -- was clapping and cheering like you normally expect at the end of a Star Wars film. He abruptly quit when he released he was alone, and not even his companions were clapping with him. Most, were sitting there in silence.

My experience was completely different. The whole cinema, kids and adults, enjoyed the movie to the point that it almost got obnoxious.

Most of disneys content has been good in my opinion. The movies and games have been the only dissapointments. 

 

My biggest gripe with tlj is that it ignores all of the establsihed sw canon this far amd sort of makes me wonder why i even kept up to date with the canon sw universe if parts are already been disregarded by newer content. And that has what tlj has done. Its shat on everything released by disney thus far

This makes me curious. Can you give an example? I've been keeping up with Canon for the last 1,5 years now through YouTube (It's really hard to get comics where I live and I simply can't keep with reading the novels) and couldn't spot any major contradictions. The only thing I thought was wierd is how the whole "Poe is hothead and needs to learn" arc was already done in the Poe Dameron comic, but I guess that's because TLJ was already written before TFA came into cinemas and the comic was written.

I didn't mean to say that you're toxic if you dislike the movie. It's just that many people acted in a very toxic and inappropriate way. Should have made that clearer. 

 

As for IHE pretty sure his entire video simply curtails of attacking people disliking the movie and being super critical of fans of Star Wars... basically the entire point I was making of find when searching for pro-TLJ vids on YouTube. I'll check the other one out when I got the time though.
Not that I've got that much faith seeing how you also simply dismiss us all, and then apparently we are the toxic ones.

Wow thanks for not even watching it. I guess 1Leonard way right then.

I felt like I Hate Everything's video about TLJ was pretty good. I also suggest watching the Comment Comeback.

 

The whole The Last jedi discussion just showed how disjointed and toxic the whole Star Wars community is. On one side, I think it's great how the movie got people talking and discussing it, but the way many did it was just embarassing. I also don't get why so many people focus on petty details and blow them up to huge proportions when the OT had many moments that made even less sense. I'm honestly glad that it made certain "fans" so mad that they quit watching new Star Wars movies because it means that we have to suffer through less bullshit when trying to talk about future installments.
