'Distinct Phantom Menace vibe?' [In reply to] Can't Post

I disagree - I don't see anyone criticizing the acting or dialogue, for example.

I think we're at real risk with going overboard on the 'negative'. Even the worst reviews seem to be about 6/10, above-average, and most veer more towards 8/10 upwards. This is not bad, and as fans we're infinitely likely to enjoy them all the more.

I'd love to see the reaction if these films were getting 1/5 reviews, blasting the acting and writing and production values.
