Are you sure about that... sounds like fake news put out by Disney.   
I actually started reading through several posts - not sure how one person could hack and write all those different post.  Mind you, I did not read the 100,000 post that are there.

Has anybody read the negative reviews on rotten tomatoes?   Man, am I ever glad to have Snowtroopers to discuss the movie.   The reason it is getting 55% is there are a lot of very mad people  :mad0177:, giving it 1/2 to 1 star.  They are out right angry.   >:( .   And they really do not like Rose.  Hopefully Ron Howard will be able to get the haters back on side with Solo.

I agree with CJ inasmuch as I'm sure they are crunching the numbers and trying to figure out why the audience reaction is what it is. I'm wondering, though, how many of us would have left ESB in 1980 completely satisfied? I remember being pissed off that it was left hanging like that.

If Rotten Tomatoes existed back then, would the greatest movie ever made have fared much better in the first week after its release? I honestly believe we are only able to appreciate ESB for what it is because of the unbelievably tidy way everything was resolved 3 years later by ROJ.

jjreason......when I first read your comment my first reaction was yea that's right, great insight jj.  

Then I started thinking about it - this can't be right I am agreeing with jj :).   I don't remember being pissed when I left ESB.  In fact I remember that I was really excited for the next movie and wow I never saw that coming, Darth Vader is Luke's Father.  It also made me go and look at the rotten tomatoes rating for Empire Stikes Back and over 1 million people have given it 97%.  Now I get that this rating is all in retrospect ie people having the ability to see all 3 movies together.  But even considering that, currently for TLJ to get a 97% rating it means the next 1,750,000 people to rate this movie would have to all say they like it.  Time will tell.... how this movie will be ultimately viewed.   We all have different taste in movies...my wife and I both like Kevin Costner's Water World - so what do I know ?

Ambasah:

Did you noticed the description of the bb8 set?

Star Wars Force Link BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset (without Force Link)

Are all Canadian sets without force link?

Critics reviews on rotten tomatoes that said they liked it:
Fanatics will love it; for the rest of us, it's a tolerably good time.

The Last Jedi should be the last Jedi. My interest died along with Hans Solo who took with him that cowboys in space humor that made the franchise so special.

Well at least on second viewing fanatics love it. :)  I have not been yet for a second viewing, I will try another theatre and hopefully fall in love with it like a few people seem to be.

I went back and looked at the rotten tomatoes ratings and I think the executives will not be ignoring the audience reviews.   The Force Awakens did very well.  The Last Jedi was going to do well because people came to see part 2.   But if the audience does not like the follow up movie... they could lose the next generation of kids who they need to carry on a successful franchise .   

TFA Critics (378 reviews) 93% liked it Audience (224,183 reviews) 88%
TLJ Critics (297 reviews) 93% liked it Audience (100,200 reviews) 56%
Thor Ragnarok Critics 92% liked Audience 88% - this is their bench mark.

Unless the next 125,000 people decide they all like it pretty hard to ignore those numbers.   

I guarantee 100% they are talking about the 56% and they are concern.

Wow...I was shock to see that after 81,484 people viewed this film only 57% liked it. Disney gets a "D" grade for this film.   

Surprising that it would score so low considering the valuable information it provided us with.  For example : if you look in a mirror you will see your reflection or how to milk an alien properly. This is ground breaking cinema.

I agree with nap seeker, this is best Star Wars movie that I have ever seen, in the last 2 days.   Honestly it is.  This movie makes me excited for the re-release of the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978.

All joking aside, I am looking forward to seeing it again.

Canadian Jedi mentioned that the Leia space walk was the weirdest Star Wars scene ever.  I would say, Luke milking the teats of that cow/walrus thing was the weirdest.  However it did feel a lot like Guardians of the Galaxy.

Luke milking the island cows was a weird scene.   

Leia flying through space was really one of crappiest scenes ever shot in Star Wars history.   And of course if they knew she was going to die they should have let her drive the space ship into the bigger space ship. 

Just want to make sure I am bringing properly quoted I stated milking Island cows was a weird scene you stated it was the weirdest - I think we are in agreement on this.

Leia flying through space was not weird it was crappy.  :P

Great comments guys.  I agree with everything being said.  After reading Bespin-81 comments - I think what he pointed out about all the changes in direction of what was happening - that probably is a bigger indication of this movie just did not know where it was going or at the very least how to get there.  I am pretty certain, based on the comment thus far that the majority of the fans on this site will be agreeing with PizzatheHutt that this is the worst movie in the franchise .  Time will tell and a second viewing is probably a good idea.

I was there for the 6 pm showing.  For those not there for a fan show.  They started it off with the director talking to us, we got free popcorn and some exclusive stickers.  Then we were treated to a walk down memory lane with vintage video of John Williams and George Lucas and later the new director in the sound stage creating the music for Star Wars.   Nice beginning for the OTC fans.   

If your are buying a pop with a topper figure - get the RED figure - they are very much a part of the movie and unique to this film. 

So the movie, like JJreason I am trying to process what I saw.  But bottom line, ranking the recent 3 movies:
1) Rogue One
2) The Force Awakens
3) The Last Jedi.

This movie will not surpass the Force Awakens in total box office numbers.

Yes they made characters worst than Jar Jar, seriously tell me the Caretakers are not the worst characters ever created in the Star Wars universe.  The porgs are cute in the lets eat chicken scene - but why put them on the MF.   Luke milking the island cows was a weird scene.   

Leia flying through space was really one of crappiest scenes ever shot in Star Wars history.   And of course if they knew she was going to die they should have let her drive the space ship into the bigger space ship. 

Best scenes: 1) Luke kissing Leia on the forehead
                   2) Luke's battle scene
                   3) Poe's battle scene at the beginning
                   4) The Throne room fight scene
                   5) The kiss between Fin and the Mechanic

Nooooooooooooooooo .  We need to win the house cup, please Professor JJREASON.

Your right of course, pretty hard to walk away from a good my little pony doll, whatever the cost.  :u:

But on the other hand, it would be easy to throw in the trash compactor, one of those "I just realized how crappy Marvel Superheros are" figures that you will be selling.    Please anyone who can help jjreason out - please go to his table.  He needs money to buy some real DC Superhero figures.    :D
