Rotten Tomatoes critics have given The Last Jedi a 93% approval rating, but this evening or near the end of the first full day of public screenings, Rian Johnson’s film has a 56% “like” rating from Joe and Jane Popcorn. Correct me if I’m wrong but this doesn’t seem like a good sign. Saturday update: 86,634 viewers have now voted, and the rating is at 57%.
The “likes” on almost all the other popular movies are in the 80s and 90s. 71,000 people voted, and I don’t see how a 57% or 58% “like” is anything but a huge whoa! for Disney, Johnson, Kathy Kennedy, Bob Iger, et. al.
Who saw it today and what was the room temperature as everyone was exiting the theatre?
