Sit down for the tea ONTD. The embargo for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker reviews has lifted and they...
It currently holds a rotten score of 56% on RT. We'll see if it continues to go down.
Here are some snippets of the reviews:
From the LA Times:
The problem with "The Rise of Skywalker" isn't any single omission or misstep. It isn't the succession of cheap "gotcha!" twists that briefly threaten to alter how we look at these characters, only to abruptly pull us back to rose-tinted reality.
Rise of the Skywalker isn't an ending, a sequel, a reboot, or a remix. It's a zombie.
There doesn't seem to be any real organic idea animating Rise of Skywalker; instead it feels cobbled together from notes stuffed in the suggestion boxes of Reddit and Twitter.
Even some of the good reviews are only lukewarm.
If it's not all that it could have been, it's also more than enough.
"The Rise of Skywalker" isn't perfect, but seen that way, it more than rises to the occasion.

#StarWarsTheRiseofSkywalker Review: "A fairly standard and overstuffed blockbuster — sprawling but impersonal — that just so happens to reference plenty of lines and incidents from earlier #StarWars films." https://t.co/Pwlf1P5eeF pic.twitter.com/mbUGli1bnv— Screen International (@Screendaily) December 18, 2019
I have seen STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER and man, is THE LAST JEDI a great movie https://t.co/khv74Y1umY— Justin Chang (@JustinCChang) December 18, 2019
STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER is a "critical error" and "a pitiful fall." My review: https://t.co/VMLFrMZVhp— Robert Daniels (@812filmreviews) December 18, 2019
The critics did praise The Last Jedi, so maybe they are wrong about this one too??
