Going tonight because I live in the middle of Idaho.

Clicked over to ScreenRant this AM not really thinking twice, EVERY article was something about the movie. Quickly exited that page, I'm really excited to see where they take the story. Hopefully leaving some things hanging for Episode IX, instant gratification from Netflix binge watching has too many people getting upset that all their questions aren't answered immediately.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I pretty much know everything that happens because I read tons of spoilers on the internet.

Because I'm a weirdo like that. I will probably see the movie this weekend or early next week sometime.

i've heard mostly negative reviews

Well it's a good thing they are following it up with a third(9th) movie then I'd say.

Bring back the cliff hangers!!! Luke is really Rey's fatherís brotherís nephewís cousinís former roommate.

Honestly, I fell asleep during it last night.

It was that boring. Or maybe a I was tired. But it was not really that good from what I remember.

I looked away, but the force block add-on did not block the WIKI PAGE OF STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI Above

its probably just keylogging all my passwords though

I had real high expectations. I feel like star wars slipped. Almost feels like I watched a bad prequel.

Voldemort dies in the end and they never get the ring back. Also, that one dude is the other dude's dad and he and his sister make out.

Saw it last night. A lot of unanswered questions, somethings were obvious as to what will happen but it was just ok in my opinion.

Well I really enjoyed it, maybe I have low standards.

Took myself to the theater, bought a couple of Colorado Light Lagers and turned my mind off for a few hours. I liked the subtle humor that was included. Unanswered questions there were, trilogy conclusion it will be.

It was okay, I had honest good laughs. But It took away all the seriousness from the jj abrams film. I saw three asian actors on the screen in one panning scene. I was like WTF star wars!

A few keys scene I did enjoy and i did like the overall message i guess. I saw TFA twice in theatre this one I probably wont be going back to see

I know this will ruffle feathers, but I sincerely feel that character (Rose) was injected solely to remedy the "lack" of an Asian character in the Force Awakens. She added ZERO to the story and her whole "relationship" with a particular other character was as hollow as a straw.

I came across this guys review on FB and couldn't agree more:

Quote:
There's no magic in it at all. You can feel Disney all over you as you leave the cinema. Feel the money all over you, feel decisions were made in rooms with profit charts. This will make money for us. Is it ****? Yes, but it will make money like the last one. It really is the last Jedi - their light has gone out across the galaxy. Watch The Empire Strikes back again. Remember the magic. Watch the X-wing rising from the swamp to John Williams perfect crescendo as a previous poster mentioned. That's why we love it. The personal battle raised to the cosmic. The micro to the macro. The heart, the feeling of the struggle that we can all relate to painted large and spectacular. This movie is just cobbled together rubbish, trying to use the gold in the first three by nodding to it repeatedly. Hi R2 for 5 seconds. Won't see you again. Get off me Disney. I need a shower.
Not only was it a very artificial experience, but they even made strategic storyline decisions that seemed to have zero thought into them... like one of the central WTF moments from the middle of the movie had everyone questioning WHY? Why do it? Why introduce the character in the first place if this was their storyline? In short, it almost seemed like JJ Abrams "Lost" problems may be rearing their head.... going down curious storylines only to arrive at a point they're no longer convenient and then just whisk them away.

Overall, was it fun? Yes. Was it boring at times? Yes. Was it unnecessarily long? Absolutely. Was there a specific planet/storyline that was completely unnecessary? 1000000%... in fact, the characters who go there, given the outcome of their mission, almost makes the entire 45-60 minutes of the film dedicated to their story arch a complete and utter waste.

Just watched it tonight, I feel the majority was getting fans to think empire strikes back reboot but just when you think you know what is going to happen they throw a twist in. I know a lot of people are disappointed in the movie but I feel like it sets up for an all out sith and Jedi battle (Iíve always wanted to see multiple lightsabers against each other and not just the 2on1 from the prequels but hopefully more that 5on5). And the unanswered call might be answered once Kylo reveals the recent changes in first order leadership.
