A Tale Of Two Directors

Let’s compare and contrast Rian Johnson with Colin Trevorrow.
Recently, starwars.com contributor Bryan Young tweeted out the following:
Here’s the article he mentions:


To which Rian Johnson replied:
You can get a more accurate story about Gamergate here:
Maybe Rian is talking about this playbook?
But the point here is this:
What Rian may be doing here, is laying down the ground work for explaining why he won’t get his trilogy no matter what the yes-men around him are saying, and looking for a convenient scapegoat to blame when the time comes.  He’ll be blaming the fans, just as he and other’s in Lucasfilm have been doing all along.  “It was Star Wars Gate!” he’ll exclaim.  Gavia Baker-Whitelaw from dailydot.com just made it easier for him to do so.
Now, let’s compare and contrast that with Colin Trevorrow, director of Jurassic World, producer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and fired director of Episode IX. 
But before we take a look at Colin’s tweets, let’s watch some reviews for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom first.
There were many more unkind reviews like this.  And many other reviews that said the film was kind of ho-hum.
Yet, even after those responses, did Colin Trevorrow call the fans racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, or manbabies?  Let’s take a look at his comments a couple of weekends after Jurassic World’s release:
You may not have liked Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at all, but Colin isn’t taking it out on you.
Who appears to be the manbaby now?
