Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi

Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi has proven to be the most divisive Star Wars film ever. While it earned generally favorable reviews from critics (91% on Rotten Tomatoes), the general audience was a little more even split (47% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes). Those most vocal about the film have been hard-core Star Wars fans who were not fans of many of the plot details that happened in the film. Depending on who you ask, The Last Jedi was either a bold new direction for the Star Wars franchise, or something that finally destroyed fans’ childhoods. Many who were displeased with the film did not like the direction Luke Skywalker went, even Luke himself, Mark Hamil wasn’t too pleased with the direction his beloved character went.
