I don't know. Have you read any of the articles Kay has written on the subject? She goes in to extraordinary detail examining why it's not just "observe and adore" with the JJ Abrams films, as well as why fandom (at least the vocal minority of fandom) has gone so absolutely batshit about those two films.
I read. While she makes some good points, she goes ranty a bit too often and that somewhat undermines her points.
