Some of the hate being thrown at people who have legitimate questions concerning the film is concerning. Star Wars brought fans together. This film has split us in two and added unsavory elements from outside to stir up more disagreement.
Can’t say I’ve seen any hate in here directed at any one, definitely at the movie though.
Also I wouldn’t say this movie has split us in two. I would say the PT split the SW fan base in two. TFA started to show some hope of bringing it back together but TLJ has since torn it completely apart while also creating fresh divisions amongst both the OT and PT parties. Essentially TLJ has fractured the SW fan base and proclaims to “kill the past”, to wipe the slate clean and start again with a fully disney-fied and commercialised SW franchise for the next generation of suckers (not trying to white wash everyone that continues to watch SW post TLJ here but simply point out that some people are blind to such things and will buy into anything SW no matter what. These type of people are already a large part of SW fandom and if that’s what floats their boat, so be it. I for one will not be bought so easily simply because “Star Wars”).
Between EA’s treatment of the latest Battlefront 2 game and the direction TLJ is taking SW, I really have no desire to continue buying into this marketing machine. I’m resigned to the fact that as all good things must come to an end, SW has run it’s course for me and I’ll just have to be content with enjoying the OT in its fan restored goodness, since I can’t even get legit copies anymore of the movies I care about most.
