Latest episode of web series argues haters "are just mad the movie isn't closer to the one they wrote in their heads."
"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" famously divided fans, and now has even divided Screen Junkies' "Honest Trailers."
The latest installment of the web series that skewers popular movies features two deep trailer voices, this time -- one who loved Episode VIII and one who hated it. Both present valid reasons, though, as they takedown/praise "Star Wars: The Last One You'll Pay to See (Until the Next One Comes Out)."
While the admiring narrator described the blockbuster as "a refreshing update to a predictable formula," the hater countered, "That spits in the face of everything you once loved."
"But forget about the butt-hurt fanboys, who are just mad the movie isn't closer to the one they wrote in their heads, because there's still all the old favorites," the admirer says before his opposite points out "your heroes are all sad and old now."
The two "Honest Trailers" narrators could agree on a few things, though, like their favorite scene in "The Last Jedi" and how adorable those porgs were, plus how stupid it was that Vice Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) kept her plan a secret from the rest of the crew on the doomed rebel ship, which resulted in Finn's ultimately pointless mission to that casino planet.
"Should we do this again for 'Solo'?" one narrator asks before they both agree, "Nah, I'm not gonna see that crap."
