Not sure if serious.

TLJ dared to be new and unexpected and people hated it.

I reject this notion that TLJ “dared to be new”. It’s pretty frustrating seeing that posted everywhere. It’s doing the same damn thing all over again, just with different characters and in a slightly different order.

and i reject the notion that these movies are the same but just sligtly tweaked. ::shrug::

Is it just a case of there being people who want new films, and people who don’t, or is there really more to it? I am not convinced that it is anything more than the first option (some people just don’t want new films, despite what they say).

Not sure if I understand. Are you saying I (and the minority who feels the same way) just don’t want new Star Wars films? If so, what are you basing this on?

I had this feeling in 2015 reading this forum as well…it’s like a bunch of you say you want Star Wars but then you don’t want lightsabers, or X-wings, or old Luke, or anything that is in any way Star Wars. And then when you get some things that are not Star Wars enough in your opinion, you say that nothing is connected to Star Wars in any meaningful way.

That is just a complete fallacy. Why are you doing this?

Why am I doing what?

Some of you (meaning those that don’t like the new movies) complain it’s too much like Star Wars. Others of you complain it’s not enough like Star Wars. Others complain about both in the same breath. I just can’t keep track of it, so if I missed the mark partially on your particular complaint, fine.

You think there’s nothing new in TLJ. Ok. I don’t even know how to process that. Other people complained that it departed too much from “Star Wars” which I don’t agree with, but at least I understand it.
