Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a much-awaited star wars movie. This movie is not up to the expectations of the fans. The fans were heartbroken and spoke up against the movie.
Rotten Tomatoes rating has shown significantly low audience rating. The critic review shows the percentage of 93% but the audience score is not what it should have been, it’s 56%. It is not sure yet, whether it a review bombing or an organic rating. Organic rating is a rating that is given by the sincere audience whereas the review bombing means a group of audience intentionally gives a negative review in order to spoil the overall review of the movie.
The Tuesday gross of the movie was 9th best and received the cinema score ‘A’.
In an interview with Business Insider, The director, Rian Johnson, elucidated:
“I’m aware through my own experience that, first of all, the fans are so passionate, they care so deeply — sometimes they care very violently at me on Twitter. But it’s because they care about these things, and it hurts when you’re expecting something specific and you don’t get it from something that you love. It always hurts, so I don’t take it personally if a fan reacts negatively and lashes out on me on Twitter. That’s fine. It’s my job to be there for that. Like you said, every fan has a list of stuff they want a “Star Wars” movie to be and they don’t want a “Star Wars” movie to be. You’re going to find very few fans out there whose lists line up.
And I also know the same way the original movies were personal for Lucas. Lucas never made a “Star Wars” movie by sitting down and thinking, “What do the fans want to see?” And I knew if I wrote wondering what the fans would want, as tempting as that is, it wouldn’t work, because people would still be shouting at me, “F— you, you ruined ‘Star Wars,'” and I would make a bad movie. And ultimately, that’s the one thing nobody wants.
And let me just add that 80-90% of the reaction I’ve gotten from Twitter has been really lovely. There’s been a lot of joy and love from fans. When I talk about the negative stuff, that’s not the full picture of the fans at all.”

Been waiting 30+ years to see Luke Skywalker back on the big screen. What a disappointment. RIP Star Wars.

Last Jedi is awful. Fans know it, critics hide it. Can we get Lucas to buy back Star Wars from Darth Igor? #LastJedi
