Stupidest Criticisms of Star Wars: The Last Jedi


The Top Ten

1 "It wasn't anything like Star Wars."

So because it's different and isn't like Empire it's nothing like Star Wars? Why do people make this argument? (Not saying that you do.) - SomePersonYouHate

Let me get this straight, you hated TFA because it was too much like ANH, but you don't like TLJ because it isn't enough like the other films? Make up your mind guys. Pick one or the other, you can't have both. - GrimmShady

2 "Disney ruined Star Wars."

Actually, it was Jar Jar Binks who ruined Star Wars. He's a Sith Lord, I think.

No George Lucas ruined Star Wars with Attack of the Clones... - SomePersonYouHate

Disney buying Star Wars does not mean they ruined it. - 445956

This is a good critism! Before Disney got its hands on Star Wars, Star Wars was a great mvoie series! With Star Wars: Rebels released, everything turned out to a cash cow! - darthvadern

3 "Critics are being paid to give it good reviews."

I know that Disney has done some shady business in the past but come on guys. This is just like Trump whining about how all criticism against him is "fake news". You can't avoid opinions you don't like simply by claiming they aren't real. As far as I know, no one has been outed for accepting money from Disney to give TLJ a good review, so the criticism is bull. Please let me know if someone is outed though, because I will gladly concede this point if it's proven to be true. That's the problem with all of the criticisms on this list; there's no evidence to support them. - GrimmShady

No one was paid to give it good reviews, not to mention most people that make this argument can't prove it or use a factual source. - SomePersonYouHate

4 "It was boring."

This is one I've heard a lot and I gotta say...I just don't get it. This was the most excited I have felt watching a film in my life. There were points in this film where my heart was racing so fast that I quite literally thought I may have a heart attack. I am aware that how excited or compelled one feels while watching a film is subjective but there is simply no point in this film where I can imagine someone being actively bored. There is always something interesting happening. - GrimmShady

So you're saying that the love sub-plot was exciting? Great, I believe you 100% (sarcasm) - darthvadern

I've seen it twice and hyperventilated during my first time watching it on Christmas Eve I was that excited by the film

It was one of the most exciting films I've ever seen and the only part of it that is "boring" is the terrible love subplot. - SomePersonYouHate

This is called an OPINION! The love sub-plot is of course SUPER boring! - darthvadern

5 "It had bad acting."

This is not subjective. If someone says this film has bad acting, you can immediately mark them down as an upset fanboy and an unreliable source for criticism of this movie. The acting in this film was great! Mark Hamill in particular just stole the show! - GrimmShady

People really think the acting is bad? - MegaSoulhero

The only bad acting was from whoever played Rose Tico her performance felt half-assed. - SomePersonYouHate

6 "It's SJW trash"

I don't see how it's political at all from what I've seen, I saw no political references or lines let alone something that's SJW territory in the slightest. - SomePersonYouHate

7 "The editing was bad."

I suppose this could be subjective thing but having seen the film, there was simply no point that I saw where the editing was notably poor. - GrimmShady

The editing was pretty decent I've seen worse editing in Suicide Squad. - SomePersonYouHate

8 "Luke is a grumpy old hermit."

This makes perfect sense given what has happened to his character. Imagine you've just defeated the Sith but then they rise again because of YOUR failure. I'd become a hermit to. This is just a well written character. - GrimmShady

Him being a hermit makes sense to be honest. - SomePersonYouHate

9 "Rey is a Mary Sue."

This argument has already been debunked as poor criticism over and over again. I don't need to repeat it. - GrimmShady

Not really I think this film developed her character. - SomePersonYouHate

10 Too many female and minority characters

The Contenders

11 "There are no fun Lightsaber fights."

A straight up lie that I've heard people bring up. - GrimmShady

That's not a lie! That's called an OPINION! Can't you take an OPINION! You're comment is a lie! - darthvadern

12 "They introduced new Force Powers."

Why was this a problem for some people? I think that they should always be expanding on the strength and techniques of the force. - GrimmShady

This seems like a good thing, besides the same powers being used over and over will eventually get stale. - SomePersonYouHate

13 "Porgs."

The Porgs occupy a teeny tiny portion of this over 2 hour long film. They are there to offer brief humor and sell toys. Nothing more. You can criticize them by saying they aren't funny or that they shouldn't be there, but people have actually been trying to use them as valid criticism of the film as a whole. - GrimmShady

They were pretty good.

14 "Even Star Wars fans hate it".

Not all of them actually hate it some do others don't

15 "It got good reviews because it was Carrie Fisher's last movie."
16 "More of Star Trek than Star Wars".
17 "The trailer was a trick".

Don't judge movies by the trailer

18 "Not everyone dies"
19 "It isn't the last Star Wars movie".
20 "It's another Star Wars sequel".

Utterly stupid

21 "It's a cash cow"

This is a pathetic excuse and a stupid critisim I thought the money I spent on tickets was well spent in my opinion
