Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The most terrified, cowardly film I have ever seen in my entire life. Every single moment a sheepish plea to a capricious fanbase: "Please stop yelling at me." You can almost hear the shame in the actors' voices as they say lines that sound like a Twitter parody's idea of what this film would be. Everything good about The Last Jedi is not just walked back but stomped on with shocking ferocity, the film all the while looking back and asking "is this what you want? are you happy?" JJ Abrams is the worst director alive and he and Disney killed Star Wars. A truly miserable experience.
