The Internet's Harshest Reactions To Star Wars: The Last Jedi

-- Warning: SPOILERS lie ahead for The Last Jedi --

Despite its glowing critical reception, The Last Jedi has completely divided the Star Wars fandom. There's no debate in the eyes of the film reviewing community: Rian Johnson's film is a knockout. Based on 284 reviews, it's currently sitting with a 93% score over on Rotten Tomatoes. But where the critical community has found common ground, the fans have can't seem to agree on anything. The Last Jedi is shaping up to be a film that Star Wars fans argue about for years on end.

Whether it's Leia's Mary Poppins-like Force use, the decision to flesh out characters like Rose instead of Supreme Leader Snoke or Captain Phasma, or, of course, the death of Luke Skywalker, a surprisingly large chunk of the Star Wars fan base have serious bones to pick with The Last Jedi. The detractors haven't been shy about sharing their opinions, either. (One quick glance at your preferred social media platform should make that abundantly clear.) TLJ's current 56% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes (based on nearly 70,000 reviews) is the lowest in franchise history. And as the hours pass, that rating continues to plummet.

Some of the negative reactions have been more over the top than others, of course. Because hey, simply writing #thelastjedisucks isn't going to get you more than a handful of retweets, is it? Read on to see The Internet's Harshest Reactions To Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We're going to start off with a bang here and head straight for the dark side, so brace yourselves.

Seriously, there's a significant portion of the fanbase that really hated this movie.

Some folks decided to focus their hatred on specific moments and plot decisions.

Others chose to express themselves hyperbolically. At least, we think they were being hyperbolic. It's just tough to imagine that they disliked it quite this much, really.

And then one Twitter user sought to...confuse...we guess?...by absolutely tearing The Last Jedi apart -- only to conclude with what would appear to be a pretty generous score. We shutter to think of what a 1/10 looks like in the eyes of this user.

Whew, that was a whole lot of negativity. On the (slightly) brighter side, there were a few fans that actually decided to tie in their love for Star Wars while tearing The Last Jedi a new one. At least they got creative with it, right?

We'd also like to take a quick parting shot at everyone on social media who decided to do what the guy below did. You guys are the worst.

In the end, The Last Jedi isn't what the critics think, or what the fans think -- it's what you think. So head out to your local theater and check it out for yourselves. It's what Luke would want.
