He is, but having rewatched Rogue One, it is clearly the best movie in the Disney era so far. And much of that comes from the stuff I'm sure he had a hand in (pretty much after the movie gets off Jedha). At that point, it becomes basically, as he says, a World War II movie with a somber tone and ending, but in the Star Wars universe. That precision makes the second half of Rogue One better and more original than pretty much all of the other Disney movies which lean too much on nostalgia. TLJ tried to break away from the nostalgia too, but it seems to have at least backfired with some of the fanbase, as it did so by deconstructing the things we are nostalgic about. He might be pretentious, but dammit if he didn't get results. I'd be more interested in him doing another Star Wars movie than Rian Johnson or JJ Abrams, but alas. They did. And that is why they did the fifth Bourne movie (fourth if you don't count Renner's) without him. It also was by far the worst Bourne movie and killed the franchise.
