In an interesting turn of events, Rotten Tomatoes reveals their audience scoring of The Last Jedi. It paled in comparison to the “paid off” critics reviews. (I AM KIDDING ABOUT THE “PAID OFF” THING!). Check it out for yourself!
The Last Jedi officially opens on December 15th, but most hardcore fans around the world are seeing it on the many earlier screenings as we speak, and for the USA, tonight. If you are itching to discuss what you’ve seen then this is the page for you! We will be bringing you a full review of the movie in a few days (once we’ve had time to fully digest it after a few more viewings) to discuss the technical and analytical aspects of the film, but use this article to release your energy and excitement for the film. Feel free to discuss ANYTHING you want about it! Post your thoughts, comments, reviews, and every spoiler-ridden comment you’ve been dying to scream out from the top of your lungs.

Warning: Expect every last spoiler from The Last Jedi to be revealed here. You’ve been forewarned!
WARNING! SPOILERS APPLY! I refuse to read anything about The Last Jedi until after I see it in theaters this Thursday, but some of the review headlines coming out are pretty humorous. There are a ton of positive opinions out there, but then there are others like this one from the National Review that are fed up with the Sequel Trilogy and have referred to this film as a”tone deaf mess.” It will be interesting after Thursday night, folks! Read through at your OWN RISK!
So, the premiere of The Last Jedi happened. As you might expect, the praise for the film is off of the charts. Hopefully the same people who praised The Force Awakens are not also praising this film. EW.com has a nice wrap-up of what transpired, but head to that article at your own risk. In fact, from here on out, avoid any articles here or anywhere else about the film until it releases. Official reviews launch soon, so be prepared for more spoilers to leak out.

Or are you just not “feeling it” anymore when it comes to new Star Wars media? Whatever your opinions, keep it friendly AND spoiler free. Thank you.
A new and awesome Chinese trailer has been released for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and features scenes never before seen. Check it out!
Thrawn, Rukh, and the Empire took a week off with “Crawler Commandeers.” Instead, the rebels had to deal with the Mining Guild and a slippery Trandoshan voiced by Star Wars animation veteran Seth Green. That may sound like the recipe for a filler episode, but “Crawler Commandeers” was a pleasant surprise. Click the banner below to read the full review!

From the day I saw the Resistance Gunner Paige and Resistance Tech Rose on store shelves September 1st, I stated immediately how intrigued I was by their characters and that I hoped right from the start that their characters would become a meaningful addition to The Last Jedi. The Last Jedi MUST DELIVER! This is evidenced by how I feel about The Force Awakens. In my opinion, Star Wars needs a jolt of Force lightning in the storytelling and I hope it gets rejuvenated into hyperdrive with Episode VIII. Just recently, director Rian Johnson hosted a Twitter Q&A. One of the questions asked focused on what character he is most interested in and he made it clear that Rose is a character he adores. I can’t tell you how excited I am by Rian’s response. Click through to check it out. Do you think Rian is right? Are we in store for something good with Rose? Lord knows she’s got to be better than Rey!

Don’t expect any Han Solo connections in the final season of Star Wars: Rebels. io9 has the full story!
We have noticed a trend and we were curious if you have been feeling the same way. After all, our interpretation is anecdotal at best. Do you have high expectations for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and is your anticipation for the film difficult to contain? We have noticed that the hoopla surrounding the film feels like it pales in comparison to The Force Awakens: from the toys/merchandise to the promotion of the actual film. While sequels (and even more with a Sequel Trilogy) are expected to not have the same level of hype as the first film in a series, it feels to us that there should be a little more excitement for and conversations about this film. So, tell us how you think this film is being marketed, anticipated and perceived by fans and Disney in our comments!
