They won't. They'll double down then blame their ratings on hateful people. Convincing themselves they are fighting the good fight and must keep making this garbage to combat against the hate. So they'll hire even more shitty feminist writers that just want to destroy everything they touch. Just like everyone else has.

Netflix already pissed everyone of by forcing online subscriptions to everyone then by not offering a proper rental add on to it's streaming services thereby restricting you to what they license. That and most streaming sucks dick for quality when you can now get UHD discs or pirate the shitty content for free to avoid ads or subscriptions.

I could just see it now. He'd be wanking to a holotape of Sulu (the Star Trek one) wanking off, and then fans would get into a huge argument over who shot off first

In the old days that kind of behavior was called mental illness.

Those critic scores are fake as fuck. Th audience is almost always more tolerant to shitty/fun action movies and the audience score is currently 57%.

i think it could also be a case of ideological confirmation. meaning that the critics are nigger loving cucks, so naturally they will support any product built around nigger loving cuckery. regardless of quality

I've heard reports of Disney retaliating for bad reviews. While they backed down from a recent overt attack, it's pretty obvious them pulling ads would mean big trouble for news papers who are already hurting.

Yeah, not sure I'll ever bother watching it. Don't want my childhood ruined anymore.

Ruining your childhood could be fun. Star Wars made by Disney can't. https://hooktube.com/watch?v=kEOkYzN-xaA

I saw it for $5, so no big loss for me. It was enjoyable, but not a fan of the overall movie.

Felt like they plagiarized Empire STrikes Back, down to the snowy battlefield with the AT-AT's.

the guy had to lick the ground to tell you it's salt. It just looks the same, because this is somehow different!

I haven't seen it, but that makes sense, given the plagerism of the "New Hope" episode in the 1st Disney star wars flick. Down to the "hidden secrets on a droid being found by a scavenger hero" bit.

I walked out after 40 minutes in, I really just lost it when they quickly killed off all high ranking officials so they could have a purple haired femenist smugly virtue signal the one guy that saved everyone's lives and completely ignore that fact for the sake of having a woman shut down 'mansplaining' which now means 'anything a guy says'.

I keep thinking back, they destroy a ship with a canon that could one shot every ship, they lost a ton of people but ultimately when they're being chased, if that ship wasn't destroyed, they'd all be dead. Instead of praising the hero, they condemn him for his bravery and sacrifice and would've rather been killed for the sake of listening to a woman than live for the sake of listening to a man. Fuck this movie completely, I don't even give a fuck if I ever find out what happens after anymore.

Also to further their circle jerk, they'll use the Schumer-Nye defense of their critical reviews being the result of alt-right trolls and bots rather than accept any criticism, I couldn't care less if everyone was a white guy as if the constant virtue signaling every few minutes wasn't enough already, but the whole attacking the hero for saving lives and wishing they'd all just die for the sake of circle jerking SJWs ruined it for me.

Even Mark Hamill has been quietly saying the movie sucks and that if you have good memories of SW, you shouldn't see the movie.

He's repeatedly stated, in SW context, that just because it makes money doesn't mean it's good. Just because it's popular doesn't mean it's good. Enjoy several minutes of Mark Hamill explained how epicly shitty the movie and writing is and that the only saving grace is the CGI. Meaning, if you want a good movie or a good story or good characters, this is not the movie for you in any way. If you want flashy SJW bullshit and shitty story telling, this movie is for you. Obviously Mark is not as blunt.

Thanks for the great review Type-R. I won't be seeing it or supporting that kind of ridiculousness at all with my money. I wonder if the critics were given money to achive that 93% score, or if they are just all total SJW?

Actually, yeah, I think we may be onto something here.

I decided to do a comparison, and for that I picked another recent movie which is similar in terms of what kind of movie it is: a big budget, trying-to-be-epic, sci-fi action flick featuring aliens, space-ships, outlandish worlds, mystical forces, conflicted characters, etc. So I went with Valerian, the main difference being that Valerian's pre-existing impressions footprint was negligible here in the US.

As of the moment I'm writing this, the Rotten Tomatoes scores for the two films are

  • Last Jedi: 93% critical / 55% audience
  • Valerian: 49% critical / 55% audience

The audience scores for the two movies are identical, suggesting that the comparison between the two is actually pretty good. In fact, between the numbers 55, 55, 49, and 93, which one looks like it really doesn't belong? I would conclude that this picture tells us at least one of the following:

  • who owns the media
  • who's strategy for "winning" relies on buying off the media
  • that preconceived biases are found and reflected the most strongly in critical consensus

I just saw it with my sister. It's pretty shit. The rebellion is about 70% female from what I can tell.

I would join the First Order though. They could use some decent leadership.
