Fans Ignore Critics – Apparently Love “Rise of Skywalker”

by Ray Keating
December 20, 2019

According to RottenTomatoes.com, fans seem to love Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – serving up a stellar score for the film. The fans’ assessment stands in stark contrast to the score offered by assembling reviews by critics.

Earlier this week, I asserted that critics don’t generally “get” Star Wars, and while not having seen the movie yet myself, the critics vs. the audience scores seem to back up this declaration. Indeed, as noted in the following graphic, fans got it right on The Last Jedi,while reviewers were dead wrong. 

So, I’m betting that the fans get it on The Rise of Skywalker compared to critics.
