Yes, only episode 1 and The Clone Wars reviewed lower, though the margin is close enough to Episode 2 that it could pass it as more reviews come in.

Not sure if this is a good sign or not. Critics loved episode 8 and it was terrible, one of the worst movies I have ever sat through. Maybe the fact that the critics hate Episode 9 is a good thing, afterall they didn't like Episode 1 or 2 and I like those quite alot. However, it's also worth noting that fan reactions at the Hollywood premiere were mixed, some said that it was great and a perfect conclusion to the Skywalker saga, others said that the plot was horribly convoluted and hard to follow.

Well, I do love me some Phantom Menace and this one is actually 5 points better!



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Considering how well the very flawed The Last Jedi was reviewed, I don't think I can trust reviewer consensus on Star Wars movies.



Signature goes here!

I think we have another TLJ on our hands, going by the plot leaks, which have been confirmed. Only this time they aren't exactly pushing an agenda that agenda driven critics can get behind. In fact, them trying to desperately get back the fans they shit on just two years ago may have pissed those critics off.  Now, we just have a mediocre, maybe even bad, film that critics can't ignore is convoluted and poses more questions than answers old ones. Something Jar Jar Abrams is known for.



I thought watching the trailers this would be a convoluted mess, and what I've read from the reactions/reviews is that it's a convoluted mess. Can't say I'm in a hurry to see this.

Yeah, I read a plot leak on reddit a week or so ago, parts of which were later backed up by the Swedish movie rating agency in their description of the movie, seemingly making that leak legit. That leak was so incredibly convoluted, it was baffling. If that leak was legit, I don't think that I'll like the movie very much, it didn't sound as bad as Episode 8, but still not anything like what I wanted out of episode 9 to redeem the trilogy after episode 8, let alone anything like how I wanted this trilogy to end after episode 7, before Ruin got his hands on it.

My thoughts exactly. The Last Jedi was not a good movie. Did the special effects look nice? Sure. But that doesn't help the terrible story.

People need to stop looking at critics reviews. Critics these days are just attention seeking fuckwits who think their opinion means more then a regular person. They like to pretend they are some sort of trend setters and that normal people who just like to enjoy movies aren't worthy of knowing what a good movie is. Not everything needs to be a clockwork orange out there wtf to be good.

Yep. I can't say that I've ever trusted movie critics, some of my favorite movies got absolutely terrible reviews from critics. They're just a bunch of pretentious idiots who think that they are somehow more qualified to say if a movie is good or not than the average person just because they took a few film and/or writing classes in college, big whoop. Their Episode 8 scores ruined any credibility they once had in my eyes.
