Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson had a heated exchange on Twitter last night.

It all started when Derrickson, who also directed 2012’s Sinister, shared a strong opinion about cinema which “bugged” Johnson. Derrickson tweeted that “Cinema is emotion over technique” which the Star Wars director disagreed with, causing a Twitter debate which continued to intensify. See some of their tweets below:

Johnson wasn’t the only one to question Derrickson’s comments though, as Logan director James Mangold also got involved:

Derrickson then tried to close the argument with a winning tweet:
