One thought on “CWK Coffee Break: The Last Jedi- Addressing the Criticism”

  1. First, a comment from Tom: “I like the way (Dan) broke down the story into an English teacher lesson — man vs. nature, man vs. man, etc.” 🙂

    Now, my comments — Dan, as usual, you provide your comments in a well thought out manner, respectfully adding comments that note not everyone has to think the same way, and discussion adds so much to the table. I agree with you 100 percent! However, what you didn’t address were those over-the-top criticisms from fans … those who have been more than harsh in their criticisms — they have been downright nasty, cruel! So what if one doesn’t like the film! Say so if that is the case. But give constructive reasons as to why not, and leave it at that. Everything negative I’ve read has been from “fans” who have complained about TLJ not being what they were expecting, that Rian Johnson and Disney have ruined Star Wars. What did these fans want? Do they offer any suggestions? No! That is what needs to be addressed! I am not saying we all need to be ‘politically correct’. What I am advocating is that people think before they speak/write (which too few people do). There’s nothing wrong with being passionate about one’s feelings/opinions. However, being human means being able to think — so people should do that! Spouting angry words does not win anyone over to one’s side, or even open dialog amongst people. It only turns folks off.

    I know those extreme negative comments from fans are only a microcosm of the Star Wars fan base. Thankfully.

    I love what you had to say about TLJ forcing fans to look at our favorite characters in a new light, to think about what we have known all these years in a different light, to reconsider what has come before and its impact on what is happening now and could happen in the future. I’ve seen “The Last Jedi” only four times so far, and I’m just coming to that realization. (I’m reading “The Legends of Luke Skywalker” right now, too, which goes rather well with where Luke finds himself in Episode VIII. I recommend it! 🙂 )

    That’s all for now. 😉

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us.

    MTFBWY 🙂
