Why let other people’s opinions define yours? So you liked it, you don’t have to defend that. You also don’t have to feel like a shitty person just because everyone else hated it and it’s mainstream to dislike it. Whatever, like what you like.
yeah, that’s what i keep trying to tell myself. i guess it’s just because it’s something i really want to be open about liking and enjoying but it appears any general positivity regarding it is shot down. usually i don’t give a shit about what other people think about when it comes to stuff i enjoy but in this case it’s just getting too close to home because i can’t even discuss the movie with p much any of my friends because they all hold negative opinions

no friend! don’t be sad! everyone is going to have a different opinion on it and that is okay. someone else’s outlook on the movie does not invalidate yours. it’s great that you loved it don’t feel bad for that!
thanks darling ;; <3
i know it doesn’t invalidate it but it just makes me feel like i missed something obvious because everyone else seems to be more capable of digesting media “correctly” than i am

Being more easily made happy normally just means that the other people around you are too judgmental rather than any failing on your part. Why would you feel bad for liking a good thing?
yeah but being judgmental is typically a sign of an educated or conscious consumer, and to think that maybe im so blind and in love with this series and what makes me happy that i’m incapable of seeing what’s wrong with it just means that i’m doing my job of being me incorrectly, i am here for other people not for my own silly meandering affections so like, if i’m so blind so as to not see what everyone considers obvious then maybe i’m wrong about everything else too

IT HAS AN 81% AUDIENCE APPROVAL SCORE ON ROTTEN TOMATOES DON’T WORRY A LOT OF PEOPLE DO LIKE IT and also a lot of people are currently in the ~totally hipster~ “THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY WAS COOLER” camp atm
yeahhhh i suppose ;; i mean yes nothing will really top the emotional importance of the original trilogy esp considering the time in which it was made and how it was made and everything like that but i feel it’s important to view them as two separate things and idk i just laskjdfklj feel bad for caring about something that so many other people whose opinions i generally respect just think was utter shite
