Critics really overlooked a lot of issues they had to have noticed as experienced film critics. They were lenient on glaring issues that would've skewered a lesser known film.

And the film did well...

I have no sympathy for him. He's thrown fans under the bus for valid critiques.

On top of that, he's stated that many times that he always wants to make divisive films. That's some stunningly...

If you think it's that simple - you're daft.

Star Wars is in dire straights right now. And this film is one of the biggest reasons why.

Nothing beats the Raiders hat. It was the most worn down looking, had a few odd angles and that pinch on the crown = perfection.

The Last Jedi - no matter how you slice it - has been slammed by the majority of fans/audiences. It's definitely over half.

The disparity between critics and audiences is staggering.

I still think they've wasted the last 25 years of this series.

It's a crying shame.

Really? I think the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hat is the second best in the series, personally.

Last Crusade being the worst. It's so tiny and looks pretty bad.

There is zero excuse for the delay between Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and a final sequel. Zero.

A sequel could've been done by 2013 at the latest. Everyone involved in these films always laments...

Also, I'm not a Star Wars fan in the slightest so I don't care one way about the Prequels.

It fared better because of the true awfulness...

This makes no sense, either.

The Star Wars prequels were much more hurtful to the Star Wars brand than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ever was.

Yet...did the prequels hurt the success of The Force...

It's less of a selfish thing and more of a point that the series had more in it than 3 or 4 films over a period of 35 years.

And the Last Crusade fedora is really bad, in my opinion. It's just too small.

Probably not.

As I've said before, if it had been made by 2013-ish, cool. But they've waited too long.

The Last Crusade could be accused of feeling the most dull of the four.

Very same-y, bland color palette, a bit droll.
