Well, the NY Times at least.

Not sure about others but I'm not planning on seeing it tomorrow because crowds.  *shudders*

But I am looking forward to seeing ASAP.


Whoa, not just the NYT.  All but one of the critics listed at Rotten Tomatoes likes it.

Someone I know gave it 8/10.

Another gave it 8.5.

I'll hopefully see it on Sunday.

RE: New Star Wars movie is well received by the critics.
To be honest I don't decide if I'll watch some movie based on reviews. I usually see what is the theme of the movie, who made it maybe even a trailer. Sometimes I only watch the first part of the movie. I don't hold much credibility for critics. I mean remember when Roger Ebert praised "Phantom Menace"? Gave it 4 stars. I could even predict which movie will get favored by Ebert even before it got out, like "King Kong" which was also shit but... Or when that humongous piece of shit movie "Noah" came out in 2014 - it had well over 80% on RT and is now at 76%. Not to mention new "Ghost Busters". It takes very little effort for mainstream movies to get pozed-up by critic and when it comes to SW I don't know what they would have to do to to get even lukewarm reception to critics.

When it comes to SW you'll watch it if it's your drift, you don't care about what film critics say.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

For some reason, I couldn't suck the wife to come and watch it with me this time! (I've always been able to drag her to all the ST movies though).
Which is fine because I'll get to watch it again on the big screen at home! (for her of course - despite her pleads otherwise!) . And I won't need to smuggle food and alcohol in this time!

Actually, the cinema was so full yesterday that I was forced to sit 5 rows from the front! I can't remember the last I've ever done that!
I felt like I was at an IMAX!

I agree.

I tend not to pay any attention to critics. If people I know, who have similar taste in movies, say yay or nay, then I'm more likely to pay attention.

The only true way to judge a movie for yourself is to see it yourself.

There are certain movies I'll go to the cinema to see. Star Wars movies are among those.

I'm going to a midnight showing tonight. I see critics and audiences both are giving it high praise, some people saying best Star Wars movie yet. I'm super excited to see it! I'll tell you guys my overall opinion after I see it.

I never listen to critics. "If you don't have anything nice to say about anything, be a critic."

d'oh!

No brainer for me. I'm having some health issues and in a cold and flu season with a <20% effective flu vaccine, my traipsing off to a theater would be an extremely poor idea.

I HAVE to wait for the blu ray.

And don't feel bad, I will use the Cornwalls, my HSU Research sub, and the Sony 75" TV and I'm going to have a wonderful time. Just delayed.

Appreciate the good reviews, people !! Play it up and I can enjoy the movie theater experience vicariously, win-win !!!

Me, I never listen to the critics of critics.  I'm happy to take what they say into consideration.  But in this case I'm mostly relieved they didn't pan it.
