I can't figure out what Abrams is trying to accomplish here. Either he knows what he is doing as a filmmaker and stands by his "artistic" decisions or he doesn't (could say a thing or two whether he is an able filmmaker or not).
No matter who you are, not every decision you make turns out exactly as you envisioned. It takes a big person to admit maybe something didn't work out quite the way they imagined.
It's funny, he admits he may have went a bit overboard and fandom jumps on it. If he had said they were perfect or had said nothing at all, fandom would have jumped on it.
These people simply cannot win.
