Unless you have been living under a rock the past week, then you no doubt know of the large outcry among Star Wars fans of the latest addition to the saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Whether it was Luke’s characterization or “Finn’s unimportant storyline”, audience response has been less than positive. With sites like Rotten Tomatoes having low audience scores, but high critic scores, it seems that this film is divisive, to say the least.

Twitter user sparkie237 asked Rian Johnson about the polarizing effect that this film has had on fans. Rian Johnson responded with an answer that will either make you like him more, or dig the hole deeper for him.

Just for clarity’s sake, I thought the film was great. I also thought it was relevant to post this because of the effect that it is having on fandom right now. If current events prove anything, you will no doubt be posting your thoughts in the appropriate places.
