    I expected the reception would probably be positive, but this appears to be overwhelmingly positive.



    December 14th can't come soon enough.

    I think #TheLastJedi may be the first Star Wars movie that's not just about growing up, but also about growing old. New characters mature, veterans learn about becoming more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

    I'm normally all about the spoilers but I'm not so sure I want to be spoiled at a this time

    BEWARE of spoilers. #TheLastJedi sneaks up on you in ways you will not expect. I've never seen apparent plot holes wielded as surprise attacks.

    Don't worry. Despite a few surface similarities, #TheLastJedi has a radically different structure from The Empire Strikes Back - and every other Star Wars movie.

    I find it interesting that Breznican has commented on the movie but has not given his impression on whether he liked it or not.

    Yep. Lots of hyperbole, just as I expected.

    I still think this movie will be divisive among fans.

    Excited by all the positive reactions. Nervous about liking it myself. And curious as to what makes it so "different." Now its time to enter the bunker...

    I saw on reviewer said they didn't like it because it felt TOO different from Star Wars and that it felt like a SyFy flick with Star Wars sprinkled in it

    I'm fine with that opinion as long as he didnt complain about TFA being too much like ANH

    There's always at least one that won't like it. I don't think I've ever seen a film be universally praised by 100% of critics.

    His reactions are measured...and strange. Not sure if he actually liked it...

    #TheLastJedi is going to spark much more debate amongst fandom than TFA. It's good! But there's a bit more fat than we're used to in non-prequel SAW films.

    Theatrically & narratively #TheLastJedi is most similar to Empire & ROTS; but it goes so much further & in such a dramatic way. Rian Johnson has cemented himself as the new heir to #StarWars.
