i dont think the problems were the fault of the directors at all. a director is to direct everything on set. the problems stem from Disney going "LETS DO STAR WARS NOWWWWW" rather than having a fucking cohesive 3 movie story plan vetted by actual decent authors. not screenwriters, authors. then passed to great screenwriters, then given to diretors and said "this is what you're to do"
i hated the last jedi vehemently. At the time i blamed RJ for this. pissing on what our generation held dear. And that's true, that's what happened. Tried to get in a new generation of fans, start afresh, but kids dont give a fuck about Star Wars. proof being that they even tried to have star wars in their faces via the medium of fucking fortnite! "please we're relevent, we want you to spend money on star wars again!" Alas, its the 30+ year old hardcore that should have the money and keep buying collectibles, special editions, toys, teeshirts, lightsabers etc. not the kids.
However it ISNT the fault of RJ, JJ etc, it's soley Disney's fault for going into this so fucking halfbaked with minimal effort and a "it's star wars! it cant fail!" attitude as though they fucking forgot what Lucas' prequels were like. The prequels were the product of one man who wasnt told to stop. The modern sequels are a product of no plan.
I'm sorry RJ. I blamed you for the shit show that was TLJ. I don't excuse The Last Jedi however, but Disney, you're a bunch of cunts. How fucking hard can this be? You had no story, no rule, noone going "wait this isnt the plan" they treated every movie like it was a random seperate installment of the MCU. I have no interest in Star Wars now. After living and breathing it for 30 something years, the magic, the thing that made it special to me has gone.
I won't be seeing this movie in the cinema. Thanks Disney.
