    I don’t think anything was retreading anymore than some of the things people like about TLJ and I’m not advocating that.

    Disney can make hundreds of new movies and break as much ground as they wish. This story was already going before they bought it and as a fan I feel I was owed a good movie...not a curveball so some up and coming director can make headlines for himself. These movies are bigger than that tool.

    Okay... make sure you inform Disney what you feel you deserve for Episode 9 so you're not disappointed next time.

    You can be naive and think I’m the only one that feels that way.

    Hardly naive... I'm fully aware that there is a large contingent of fan boys that think Disney has ruined Star Wars and by extension, their childhood. My guess is that the vast majority of these people weren't even alive when the OT was released.

    I never said TFA wasn't good. I enjoyed it very much. I'm only speaking to the outrage since the release of TLJ.

    You said that people think Disney ruined Star Wars. That’s not true.

    Your hyperbole is catching up with you.

    I haven't seen it once and it's certainly not something I've ever said.

    Its all over the place on FB comments in Star Wars pages/epicstream etc. Even @severjacksvisit thinks they have ruined Star Wars

    So your only exposure to Star Wars is on the unofficial 311 bulletin board? Maybe do a bit more research...

    Nothing I've said is exaggerated.

    Dipshit, I was responding to you putting words in my posts.

    You liked the movie and I didn't. Are we done here because interacting with you sucks.

    And why exactly should I do "research" on something that I don't agree with and am not saying?

    So when you have a difference of opinion with someone and don't like what they have to say, you resort to name-calling?... Class act.

    I've been nothing but civil and cordial towards you, but whatever...

    This isn't a difference of opinion. This is you misrepresenting what I'm saying.

    I showed you that you were doing it...if you don't understand that then I was right, you're a dipshit.

    TLJ definitely isnt great and has its flaws, but I just watched The Phantom Menace again and MAN, that is a shitty movie!!!! The ONLY saving grace is Qui Gon/Obi Wan v Maul

    Episodes I and II were complete horseshit trash and neither are even close to The Last Jedi, flaws and all. Anyone that would voluntarily watch either of those movies more than once has no taste.

    From my point of view there is only one person here making misrepresentations.

    You called me naive, implying that I thought you were the only one who disliked the movie. I rebutted by stating not only were there a large contingent of people who didn't like TLJ, but who also thought Disney was ruining Star Wars. I never said you were one of those people (that would be your misinterpretation).

    You then stated that my "hyperbole" was catching up to me, implying that I had made some exaggerated, unfounded comment, which I did not. There was even a member on the BB that supported my claim.

    You also said that I liked the movie, which I never said (yet another misinterpretation on your part). I said there was stuff I liked and stuff I disliked. If anything, my opinion of TLJ is indifferent. I'm not going out of my way to bash it, but I'm not giving it praise either.

    You being able to copy and paste doesn't really show me anything or make some kind of point.

    And as far as your "dipshit" comment goes; when you point your finger at someone, you have three more fingers pointing back at yourself.

    You're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.
