"hurr durr I can't BELIEVE you guys dredge up the SAME ARGUMENTS about TLJ TWO YEARS LATER"
The prequels first came out twenty years ago. People still take a dump on them every chance they get. Tell me, exactly when is the cut-off point for criticizing bad movies? They don't stop being bad with time.

The same people that hate Rey are going to be the first people praising her when it turns out she's Obi Wan's granddaughter and that the climax of the series becomes Anakin's grandson and Obi Wan's granddaughter defeating the Emperor together.

I highly doubt this. This is disingenuous. She's a bad character, and who her parents or grandparents are barely affects that, and I'm willing to be 99% of this trilogy's detractors are fully aware of this. She'll not be getting praise just because of fan service. That's actually been one of the huge criticisms of this trilogy. In almost every criticism of Disney's Star Wars I've seen, there is a jab at Disney's soulless fan service. To be clear, fan service can be fine. It can be good. It's become associated with a really soulless form of shoving superficial elements and references into a work to appease the hardcore fanbase by giving them things they recognize, but fan service is also "writing a good story that is logical and follows the natural course of the story." That is doing a service to the fans. Disney has done the former. They have not done the latter.
