    (Beware, this article does not contain spoilers for The Last Jedi, but there might be spoilers in the comments section below)

    The time has finally come! You can read our initial spoiler free reaction about the movie after the jump as well as the opinion of other fellow sites. Keep in mind that these are just broad impressions about the movie, but so far the feedback is overwhelmingly positive. The full (again spoiler free) reviews for The Last Jedi will start to hit on Tuesday.





    First here's what our own John Hoey thought about the movie:








    And some more reactions from other people:
























































































































    We have yet to find any negative comments. This is going to be truly amazing and obviously not going the way we all think.

    I still remember how some called Rogue One "better than empire".
    As per usual it's a lot more interesting to look at reactions that involve some form of negativity and look at that persons track record and taste.
    So far so good.

    From the first impressions everything looks great, I don't remember TFA getting anywhere near as good a reaction as this and I personally loved TFA.

    Couldn't be more excited for Thursday.

    I think 'Groundbreaking' seems to be the general consensus so far.

    I always take these first reactions with a HUGE grain of salt, as it’s almost annoying that these people use the same hyperbole everytime.

    I would just say ‘Thumbs Up and I’ll give you my in-depth thoughts after everyone sees the movie.” That way ‘Thumbs Up’ leaves it vague to the point of someone can love or like it.

    But as usual these sheep have to give the typical Hollywood response that this is the greatest SW movie ever, or as great as ESB, etc. Let me just say it’s impossible to rank a SW movie after 1 viewing because it takes a few viewings to really get a true gauge of how you feel. I was on the fence towards TFA opening night, but loved it by my 3rd viewing.

    Sorry but I don’t buy it because they have done this for every SW film. Just go back to Kevin Smith’s glowing review of Episode 1 in 1999....

    Well, history repeats itself.

    I think it's important not to overhype.

    BUT.... seems that TLJ is hell of a ride, different, probably will divise the fans at some level.
    It is NOT a Star Wars episode that will leave people indifferent... and that is AWESOME.

    I agree. But to be fair, immediately after the first viewing I was saying the same kind of things after TFA and RO. The initial excitement always gets the best of me and makes my hyperbole engine go into hyperdrive.

    I’m just looking for positive vs negative. Beyond that I don’t read much into the intensity of the comments.

    Either way... ITS OPENING WEEK Y’ALL!!!

    I understand the trepidation and cynicism regarding the reviews however they aren't all just endless reams of hyperbole, they all seem to use the same language when describing the film. Such as 'unexpected' 'different' etc and a lot have praised RJ directly.

    If the response was just an endless stream of people gushing over how brilliant the film was without adding any sort of context then I'd be a lot more sceptical.

    that's usually typical, them being respectful of their colleagues

    The more I read their hyperbole the more turned off I became. A lot of people walked out TPM claiming it to be a masterpiece. Time proved otherwise.

    No one walked out of TPM and called it a masterpiece. And these reviewers only have so much they can say in a tweet and without spoiling. I'd say it is very good and the standard isn't Empire. The standard is its own self.

    This time though, what is different is that the "This movie is a masterpiece" has been replaced by "This movie stunned me". Of course you'll always be the usual "The best Star Wars since Empire...". Spoilers: Youll hear that comment yet again for Episode 9 ;)

    I love the people in this forum, since my existance as a Star Wars I have never read such positive appraisal for a star wars movie. Yet most people in this thread almost seem dissatisfied that people absolutely love it and that there is nothing to nitpick.........for now.
