Early reactions from a mix of legitimate critics and shills are very positive. Some people who didn't care for TFA liked it and one caption says it wasn't a structural copy of Empire. Of course, these screenings always end up like this but perhaps this'll pay off like it generally has this year.

I'm going to predict a 91 or 92% on the Tomatometer since almost every tentpole with great reviews this year has made it to that point.

Scott Mendelson hates everything. So even if he liked it, that means we’re in for something special.

If I pirate this and it turns out to be ok, I'll be pleasantly surprised. But Disney owes me big time for Rogue One.

I heard that Snoke reveals to Luke that he willed Anakin Skywalker into existence and then kills him.

David Ehrlich is basically a Jewish Diego, and he thought the film was “fucking phenomenal”.

I actually had an argument with this dude on his Letterboxd page. He kept posting excerpts from his reviews with links to the full reviews, so I commented something like "Just post the whole review here. No need to link us to the z-list web publication you write for." He whined about how Indiewire isn't a z-list publication, so I said "Sorry I offended you. You can read my full retort on my website."

Guy is a massive douche. His love for Carol makes me want to hate that movie.

How'd you find that? I was looking for it so I could quote it verbatim.

Anyway, he did come back and say something later. Though that might've been someone else now that I think about it. In any case, his reviews are terrible and his Letterboxd page is comprised of sycophants. I think I had another run-in with him prior to that as well.

It’s on his Valerian review, and that was his only response.

I mean, the part I was talking about was right underneath where Moody cut it off. It was someone else who said it though.
