    It's very late for this, but here is an older image to consider that may provide a clue:

    I loved it. That's the only spoiler-free review I can give you.

    stupid move on my part, was at avclub and I clicked on a Rian Johnson article and they opened the story with TROS RT score which is very lame on their part and I saw a review headline. But that's it so far!

    Just finished The Last Jedi. I absolutely love that film!! It has the longest run time, yet always goes by the quickest for me!

    Cant believe it, but tomorrow is the day!!! I hope everyone has an amazing experience with The Rise of Skywalker! 42 years in the making, going to be an emotional ride!

    This is all I needed to hear. I haven't read any reviews, or viewed any videos. As of 1:25 PST, I have about 20 hours and 10 minutes before the movie starts!

    Exactly 15 hours from typing this, I will be seated in my local movie theater, preparing to experience the final chapter of a 42-year Saga.

    This will be a day long-remembered.

    Saw it this morning. Non-spoiler review - it was great! I will say it moves fast though - there isn't any good place for a comfort break. I'm going back on Mon or Tues for a 3D showing - today's was 2D.

    That was one good thing about a 935 AM showing - between the walk into town and shopping a bit there wasn't much time to waste.

    Unfortunately my tickets aren't until tomorrow (Friday) at 7:00 PM, so I will have to work harder to stay spoiler free. The good news? I get to watch the end of the saga with my two little girls, which is undeniably worth the wait. :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed the film and I think I will go again tonight. I was surprised that the crowds I expected didn't eventuate.

    How does it compare to The Last Jedi as far as length? I think the Mega Cup I usually get to drink pushed the limits each time I saw it.
    This is good news, considering I have tickets three days in a row. Just over 7 hours to go!

    Just arrived at the theatre. I guess this is where the line, and saga officially end! I’ll make sure to post a NS reaction after I get out. I hope everyone enjoys the film!

    Film itself is a little bit under 2 1/2 hours. Cinema I was in had about 1/2 hour of ads/trailers tacked on at the beginning. (Pretty standard for them). My bladder was letting me know about it but I made it through the credits. So probably in the neighborhood of TLJ but not as long as IT: Part 2. (My bladder was screaming by the end of that and I had to leave when the credits started).

    Non-spoiler review:
    Not a critic’s movie by any stretch, but more than makes up for it by being tons of fun. Movie spends all 2 1/2 hours at a breakneck pace, and there’s quite a lot to process. Practicing restraint is not the movie’s MO and there’s more than a little handwaving, but given that this the final movie in the saga the whole “Star Wars on steroids” feel can be forgiven and simply enjoyed. It’s the kind of action-packed, fun movie that would have been one of my absolute favorites as a kid. Loved it!

    We opted to see it on saturday early eve since we take our 4 kids with us.
    Cannot wait to see it....I never read or agree iwth reviews anyway. My opinion is all that really matters
    when it comes to liking or hating a movie.

    Pretty sure I know why they call it the Rise of Skywalker, I just hope they don't take the lowest hanging fruit...but I think they will.

    I was severely disappointed. I hope everyone had a better experience. I left the theatre heartbroken last night.
