    I told you guys to stop suffering for reviews that weren't even released yet. And as you see, it was a lie...Also, is quite strange how ROTS is falling in RT, since the last 12 reviews 10 have been good and only two bad, but of course the 2 bad were counted and most of the 10 good weren't...

    Bill O'Rielly and ROTS

    I caught the 3a.m. repeat of the O'rielly Factor on FOX News. Does anyone here watch the show. If you don't guess where he put a ROTS bit in. The most rediculous item of the day. DOH!

    He stated he was once a film critic and that he plans on having a review up next Wednesday night.

    I think it would be interesting to see if enough form goers email him after he makes his review and see if the next day he mentions a few of them at the end of his program email segmaent?

    The unofficial tomatometer counts 43 fresh and 9 rotten. But this hasn't been counted towards the actual tomotometer ? Why ?

    By the way who have we got 2 thumbs up from ?

    Don't pay any attention to Bill O'Reilly. Let's just drop him right now because he'll hate it. He'll be the first to point out on national TV that Lucas has a politicial statement to make against You Know Who...so just discard him right now!

    Just waking up to the two thumbs up news! Excellent! :D

    The unofficial tomatometer counts 43 fresh and 9 rotten. But this hasn't been counted towards the actual tomotometer ?

    Forget the unofficial numbers. Most people will see the RT front page, which has the official numbers only. The "unofficial" critics do NOT get added to the official tomatometer, ever.

    With the good critical word combined with the fact that this is the last STAR WARS ever, I think it's official that this is going to be STAR WARS' greatest year. Enjoy it while it lasts people -- it's 1977 all over again!

    Thank the maker that this journey is going out on a high note!

    Ok, it is early and I still have sleep in my eyes. But for the life of me, don't see the Ebert and Roeper review posted. Which one is it?

    They have a TV show and that is where we found out. Their written reviews likely do not show up until the day of release.

    Ah, ok. We don't get the show here where I live until tonight. I will have to check it out.

    I hate to say this, but those two usually are the one critic team I CONSIDER the opinion of when seeing movies. Though I let my own intuition and opinion determine the movies I see, I still can usually gauge whether I will like a movie from their combined opinion (most times, not always). I know these two carry a lot of power with their "thumbs up". So I am glad to see they gave ROTS a thumbs up. Will check out their program tonight to hear what they said about it.

    i don't let them effect what i do but i DO look and see if their names are on the ads in the newspaper.
    Very interesting...its kind of ingrained in your psyche like star wars.

    I have to say my interest in this movie has been Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayy over the top. All in good fun mind you but ....nope this is the last one, i'm milking it for all i can.!

    Can anyone that saw the review give a quick synopsis of their comments? Not a biggie, will watch it tonight, just interested in their comments.

    Yeah, the same with me. I look for their "thumbs up" but in the end, I will go to a movie based on my own anticipation of it.

    I hope those positive "Cream of the Crops" will have the balls to stick to their opinion. Still hopefully this indeed ends the "the believe the hype sheeps" :mad: [face_dancing]
