World premier last night. Well, the early buzz is that it's VERY, VERY good indeed...

I didn't like it.- But don't worry- I usually don't like a Star Wars film the first time I watch one.

But im dead excited to watch it again.

There is WAY to much to process.

Some odd choices.

Some amazing parts.

Its going to take many, many views to get a handle on this.

Its nothing like ESB.

Yeah, I'm still in two minds about it. Great scenes and some really funny parts - I really liked the humour - but there were some bits I just didn't know about. Some very unexpected turns too.

It definitely entertained and was a big movie. ESB is still my fav tho.

Don't try to compare this, or any other modern era Star Wars movie, with the classic trilogy we grew up with. They will NEVER match them...that magic was spent a long time ago...but for now, in this day and age...we can enjoy this...for it is still relative to Star Wars and good enough to be deemed so. A good movie...not great but good. There are some surprises...and some things I really enjoyed, others not quite so much...but overall, good job.

Just got back from midnight showing. Absolute garbage. Walked out. I'm absolutely heartbroken what they've done with it.

Absolutely terrible, was desperate to walk out, soon as it finished both my wife and daughter said they also wanted to walk out.

Loved it, but sooooo much to process. Will need to see it several more times to truly process it. There were several bits that I wasn't sure about, but then I compared to bits from the original trilogy and realised that they were actually right on the money in terms of feel.

I watched it through tired eyes ( tired for the day. Tired at 41years old ) was not overly impressed. A good film. But that’s all I felt. A couple of moments which were absolutely fantastic though.

Going again on Saturday so will hopefully get more out of second viewing

Went to a double bill, which I dont think helped TLJ as TFA was still excellent after not having seen it for a year and Last Jedi didn't match it for quality.

Thought it had a poor start not helped by people cackling through every pun, which gave it a probably unfair feel of being too slapstick. Suspect on second viewing it won't be so bad but still a feeling of Star Wars parody in parts.

The story was good but overlong, with even a bit of a prequel feel to one unnecessary scene. Its hard not to focus on the negatives but definitely enjoyed it so a strong 7/10 from me. I preferred TFA and Rogue Squadron although TFA had to grow on me so not giving up on Jedi yet.

running on fumes today - i need some sleep :)
