First reactions to ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
The Force is strong with this one
After the initial premiere in Los Angeles over the weekend, the first verdicts are now spilling in as the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise makes its mark all over the world. My thoughts after catching it last night? I LOVED it! It's not without its flaws—nice touch of humour but not always well-placed, and it dragged a little at parts—but it was exciting, intense, emotional, with more than a few moments that had me at the edge of my seat.
And it most certainly looks like I wasn't the only one with those sentiments. Check out some of the first reactions to Star Wars: The Last Jedi here:
There’s a scene in #StarWars #TheLastJedi that I keep playing over and over in my head, that is so stunning and unexpected that I don’t want to forget how I felt seeing it for the first time. This movie feels unlike any other Star Wars movie in all the ways I hoped. pic.twitter.com/zlDW4yOjp2— Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) December 10, 2017
"Do. Or do not. There is no try." Bravo, @RianJohnson. You did that! The last 40 minutes had me on the edge of my seat in every moment. Superb storytelling. Exceptional design. I laughed. I cheered. A total joy-ride through the galaxy. So fun. #StarWars pic.twitter.com/u4h4XsdzZA— Ava DuVernay (@ava) December 10, 2017
I am STUNNED by #StarWars #TheLastJedi. I gasped, I laughed, I screamed, I cried and I had the time of my life. Rian Johnson pulled it off, making what might be the best Star Wars movie ever. pic.twitter.com/0VE5M90dsH— Joshua Yehl (@JoshuaYehl) December 10, 2017
#TheLastJedi is absolutely fantastic - gripping, touching, funny and powerful w/ gorgeous shots and the most badass battles. When it gets going, holy crap does it get going. Hands down the best #StarWars movie since Empire pic.twitter.com/nWWAhlNMJo— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) December 10, 2017
#StarWars: The Last Jedi is so beautifully human, populist, funny, and surprising. I cried when one POC heroine got her moment because films like these leave their mark on entire generations -- and representation matters— jen yamato (@jenyamato) December 10, 2017
Guys. @rianjohnson has made the most epic, emotionally powerful @starwars film ever. Hands down. My strong advice is to be very wary of spoilers. The less you know about #TheLastJedi, the better. Bravo, bravo, bravo.— Clayton Sandell (@Clayton_Sandell) December 10, 2017
