    This is going to be the thread where people can freely proof read reviews and post nonspoiler reviews for the people who want to know what some critics and reviews think of the movie without being spoiled. If you don't want to know even this, click away now.

    Star Wars premiere just letting out now. A LOT of smiling faces. #StarWarsForceAwakens



    Fantastic!!!


    1st Star Wars review: it was epic, awesome & perfect. The cast was stellar. JJ killed it!



    Ranking: 1. Empire Strikes Back. 2. Force Awakens. 3. A New Hope. 4. Return of the Jedi. 5 - 8 Prequels. Thank you JJ. #TheForceAwakens


    THE FORCE AWAKENS proves JJ Abrams is an auteur: once again we have great characters, propulsive fun, sort of shi**y, dumb story.

    Okay so everyone bear in mind that twitter reactions from a premiere tend to be highly positive relative to the reception a film ends up with.

    Do I understand it correct that the movie had some kind of celebrity premiere today and will open to the rest of the world tomorrow?

    Right, it was a private premiere at three theaters in Hollywood. There's a video of starwars.com's replay on youtube.
    Presumably there will be critic reviews out before Friday so there is a preliminary rating % on RT as they've kept TFA
    from media critics until the last week.

    Many positive reviews by people after episode 1 as well so I would take it with a grain of salt.

    Thursday night. However the embargo is lifted on the 16th.

    Given that this is Starwars and Disney I have a rule that the movie ends up with a 10% bump regardless of how good or bad the film is.

    The nice part is the VFX while they will be impressive we are not talking about ground breaking technology so to an extent the actual film should matter a bit more. People will be less forgiving if say the VFX are great but the story is on the level of Transformers

    Might be worth pointing out that there are negative reviews out there too. Impossible to quote them without spoiling alas....

    TPM has a ton of great reviews coming out of world premier. I have one person that I trust that was at the premier last night. I am waiting to hear back from him what he said. I hope it does not suck.

    I might temper what I said earlier btw by saying that the overwhelming majority of people are saying positive things.

    I see the movie in less than 24hrs so I'll know soon enough. :)

    Someone said Patton Oswalt liked it via twitter, but I'm too afraid to look at his feed in case he said something else about it.

    Patton Oswalt did indeed like it....I've seen a couple of other people who are very critical of the PT praising it as well.

    And without spoiling it, I can say that #StarWarsForceAwakens has the BEST final shot of any Star Wars film. Wow.

    All these tweets being reposted are from actual critics and not just average joes who got into the premier. This is a positive sign.

    Just leaving the #StarWarsForceAwakens premiere. It's really really good. Best one since Empire.

    Robert Mills@Millsy11374 12h12 hours ago
    Short #TheForceAwakens[​IMG] reaction. It's everything you want it to be. See it ASAP. Beware of spoilers. It's funny, fun and exciting.

    Steven Weintraub@colliderfrosty 12h12 hours ago
    Not going to say much till I see it again but rest assured THE FORCE AWAKENS is the best STAR WARS since 1983...maybe 1980.

    Amy Hennig@amy_hennig 11h11 hours ago
    J.J. nailed it. #StarWarsForceAwakens is wonderful.

    We need more.

    The truth is all of us SW nerds are going to enjoy this the first go around, unless your mind is made up before you go in.

    I'm aware. I knew people there last night and I know people who are seeing it in a few hours (maybe as I type). There will be a lot of these kneejerk reactions until more measured reviews are posted on the 16th.

    This is something I very much expected from this film and am glad to see there's an amazing final shot that's going to leave us all in awe.
