In a way, it's not very re-assuring. Movies I love, I could go on and on about how and why I love them. Stuff I kind of enjoy ? I'll probably have forgotten about them next week.Luke M wrote:The criticism I’ve seen on the internet has been dominated by people who really hate it and constantly want to let you know why, while the people who liked it only sorta enjoyed it.
But it's also a very human thing to do. The most vocal people are always the complaining ones. At least, this time, they were able to articulate why.
Honestly, it's a bit frustrating to see the fanboys being brought up all the time, as if you have to be a fanboy to dislike the movie or to find grounds for complaints. I like Star Wars, it's part of the movies I'm seeing since I'm a kid, but I probably am no fanboy, and I yet strongly disliked the movie, more than any SW movies before. And to me, the biggest issues were problems that weren't kicking in in the SW realm, but pace, story, twists, narrative choices, things really down to movie-making and that I could discuss about for other movies.swo17 wrote:Fanboys--sometimes I wish I could just put my fist through the whole lot of them.
If it were issues like "Oh but really ? Han's dices ?!!" like some people brought up, I wouldn't be bothered by them, but I just found the movie extremely poorly constructed and with too little substance for its ambitions, making it look very pretentious. If it wasn't 2h31 but, say, 40 min shorter, maybe I would have been more accomodating with it, but not with this.
And none of this has to do with being a fanboy.
