So, with that in mind, here are just a few of the most popular responses shared:

1.Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

A man saying "Somehow, Palpatine returned"
LucasFilm Ltd.

"One of the cringiest moments, especially in context, was sitting in a theater at the opening weekend, and hearing Oscar Isaac spit out the line: 'Somehow, Palpatine has returned.' The problem was that there was still two hours to go. I've rarely witnessed a whole audience laugh at a scene that wasn't supposed to be funny. I'm glad that I'm not into Star Wars because that must have been horrifying for fans."
