Next comes the part where they blame the fans for the failure


Mark my words, they will blame the fans once again.

Of course!

They are already.

Apparently the mediocre quality of the film itself is because they tried too hard to appease the "toxic" fanbase.

reply

Didn't these same critics love TFA, which also tried to please the fans at every turn and had loads of nostalgia-bait? There's no logic to any of this bullshit, of course.

TLJ raised the bar by being so aggressive and hard core with its wokeness, I think. I mean all the male characters in TLJ were all pretty useless and pathetic, really, especially Luke. Kennedy was pretty serious about the "Force is female".

Now they are walking that back somewhat. Rey is still Rey, the best at, well everything, but it's not enough. They wanted Abrams to continue along the path that Rian Johnson set out on.

Half the reviews on rt blame the fans already.

Like the fans requested somehow this abomination ...

reply

Then an actor or actress will delete their social media blaming toxic fans...

They share some piece of it. How much nitpicking and bellyaching did they do over TFA and TLJ again? Now this film tries to please them to its own detriment. Must be nice having the cake and eating it too. Disney evidently retcon TLJ to please the fans who made it VERY clear how much they didn't like TLJ, and the fans are celebrating its apparent failure anyway. It's ridiculous how low and duplicitous the fandom has come.

...As well as call us misogynist, of course.

It's a chick thing, they can't own their own f-ups, gotta blame their failure on men - in this case, the customer . . . just the way life works these days.

Come on that's not fair. It's not all women who act like this, it's militant feminists like KK.

Don't tarnish us all with the same brush. Most of us aren't crazy insecure man-haters.

This needs to absolutely be said!!!

agreed.

Now now, don't get all butthurt Chloe, I know there are 5 or 6 of you good ones out there.
