Is this a question or a statement? I can’t tell because the thread title has no punctuation.

Statement

Well yeah but you fixed your thread title and also I see what you did here.

Also you liked TFA until YouTube told you not to, so I’m not sure how KK fits into that bit of info.

It was agonybooth, not YouTube. How many times do I have to say this?

Kennedy is the one who is overseeing everything right now. She is the one who chose to play it safe and just give us what we already had while denying what we want.

Maybe when TFA first came out it was okay to be less critical of the movie because it passed the bar lowered by the prequels (i.e. Star Trek 09). But in light of Rogue One cynically exploiting the fans for profit, and bringing in such auteurs like Ron Howard and Stephen Daldry while firing Lord & Miller for yrying to do something new with the franchise, it seems right to view TFA more critically than in 2015.

That doesn’t make any sense.

Yes it does, because the context in which the film exists has changed. In 2015, it was a new beginning, going back to the roots after the disastrous PT era. Now it’s the first product in the assembly line, part of the cinematic universe trend of the 2010s, where it’s just recycling what was done before to make a profit.

Bottom line, it isn’t aging well, just like Star Trek 09.
