For whatever that's worth. It can go the other way too, I saw some positive duplicates, reminding me of the shilling that happens at Amazon.com for new products.
    Metacritic's audience rating is also high I believe.

    The /r/Imgoingtohellforthis and 4chan folks are doing a lot of it. They've been active on reddit trying to go out of their way to ruin peoples experience of the movie. They get a weird kick out of it.

    • Just ran across a fun non spoiler tidbit... maybe you've all seen this, but I haven't...

      The Porgs weren't added to TLJ because they wanted a cute cuddly creature for merchandise (ok, not ONLY for that reason).... The island where they did the filming (name escapes me) is covered in puffins. It's easier to cover them up than remove them entirely.

      Thanks, Reid!

        The Chargers are destined to become the Portland Puffins. It's just a matter of time.

          Currently the worst "audience" rated Star Wars film ever. It looks like it may continue to trend even lower. Wow!

          People give me grief for being a "fanboy" and "loving the originals too much" that nothing would have appeased me, but I disagree. I appreciate the originality of Rogue One, found it entertaining, and even though it missed the mark... I'd still give it a C+/B-.

          With the incredibly rich universe and insane amounts of canon, there was ZERO excuse not to continue this new trilogy in a totally unique and creative way, rather than re-hashing the old story and throwing some CGI lipstick on it. Why is it that the Disney studios and any director that takes on this franchise struggles? Even the stand-alone films have been plagued with writing/directing issues ( a la the new "Solo" movie). It's really a shame, with how rich this universe is, that these films continue to "whiff."
          As I recently wrote to a friend...

          This is has become a very controversial and divisive film amongst the fanbase. But there are actually many old school people who like it or love it, like a good friend of mine who is more accepting of some of the decisions and twists in the film.

          Art is a matter of taste, and movies as the cinematic arts is no exception to that. Some parts of this movie may appeal to one's particular personal tastes that contribute to the overall assessment and may tip the balance. I mean for one guy, a certain scene with a certain surprise character, weighed heavily in favor!

          My advice is to forget what you've read about it and go see the film with an open mind. There is much to be said for engaging the sheer spectacle of it on a large screen with a deluxe surround system, and all the films recall somewhat of the glory of the first one: the opening signature logo, main theme march, and opening crawl, and it is yet another imaginative foray into that galaxy far far away (where we'd all rather live -haha).. John William's score is fantastic as usual --really perfect for the latest chapter of the 'space opera'.

          I was entertained, and I think it was worth the price of admission, even if it didn't meet some of my personal expectations and the standards set by the original trilogy, which (it must be conceded) sets a rather high bar and is a very tough act to follow!

            It's currently at 4.9 with more negative reviews than positive, only about 3,000 total though.

                • I'm a huge Star Wars fan.... but I cringed when I saw Leia "super-manning" it through space.

                  From then on, the movie just was sorta 'meh' to me. Didn't like the ending either...
