Poll: Man of Steel vs The Last Jedi: Which film was the most divisive? (67 votes)

Man of Steel 15%
The Last Jedi 85%

The title says it all. These two movies are some of the most polarizing films recently. Both have fans passionately arguing if they are masterpieces or a cancer to their particular franchise, and has caused division in the fanbase. But which would you say is the most divisive?

The Last Jedi is the most divisive movie of our time, period. None of the runner ups (Man of Steel, Interstellar, etc.) even compare.

TLJ, because on top of everything else, it had massive hype building up to it and it was just kinda crap.

MOS was decisive , not TLJ level tho , Many fans were mad at the realistic approach of Superman and how he handled situations , many supported it , it caused to a divide that started the argument of whether MOS is seen as a complex film (which it is) and pushed fans to even hate DCEU for life

I didn't even know MoS wasn't well received at the time because no one gave half a shit about RT in the geek circles (BvS changed that).

And among casuals there's no such thing as universally loved.

But Batman vs Superman made much more money than Man of Steel so they came back.

@darkonast: no that was BVS and I really dont think the problem was the dark tone with DCEsu movies it was the terrible writing and ideas I mean BVS had so much potential to be epic but just wasn't and it wasn't because it was dark its because it was an empty movie with epic fight scenes.... a lot of people came out to see BVS

Man of Steel, at absolute worst, was an adaptation of a character people didn't agree with. It has zero impact on the actual canon of the Superman character in the comics.

The Last Jedi IS canon, however. The Last Jedi is how the story of Luke Skywalker ends. If you didn't like it well.. That's it, really. The best you can do is cling to the old, now retconned stories of Luke from the comics. The canon story going forward, unfortunately, is forever ruined for you.

TLJ by far. With MoS it was the first of the series, and even though there were some division among fans, the divisions could have been corrected in an appropriate sequel. A sequel with a happier, caring Superman (as well as a good plot) could have easily unite fans

TLJ was so decisive that it made there isn't much Disney can do to reunite fans together outside of a reboot.

How was TLJ divisive? Doesn't everyone agree it was a train wreck?

Progressive Liberals loved it and some critics liked it (don't know why)

He may be right you know. I'm struggling to find a more divisive movie, and the first one that came to my mind were TFA and R1, outside the SW universe BvS (which I think was far more divisive than MoS), but it's still a far cry from TLJ (or even the other recent SW movies)

Well, no since there is a massive gap between what critics said about it (still has a 91% RT score) and what the audience said about it (46%).

The Last Jedi was far more divisive.

But The Last Jedi was a far far better film. Man of Steel was okay but TLJ was great. Still shocked that people hated it.

The Last Jedi had some really good (Rey and Kylo relationship) and some sorta bad (everything else).

Man of Steel had some really good (action, score) and some really bad (PA KENT WTF).

Overall, I think that Man of Steel is more divisive. Most people agree that TLJ is meh to kinda bad. A "yellow to orange" kinda thing.

But Man of Steel people range from "green to red". It is more of an acquired taste. There is a really large range of difference in Man of Steel opinions.

The only people who consider TLJ a complete CATASTROPHE are MAGA gen z zoomers tbh.

MoS easily, because there is nothing divisive about Last Jedi - it's simply a plain garbage.

It shocks me how anyone can even consider TLJ has average, let alone great or masterpiece.

That movie was bad, people just need to accept that already

I'm definitely not Gen Z (33 yo) and think it was pretty terrible, except for what you pointed out (Ben & Rey's video calls)
