Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the best reviewed movie of 2017


That’s right, folks. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the best critically reviewed film of 2017…

Rotten Tomatoes just revealed its Golden Tomato Awards, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi took the top spot as the best-reviewed science fiction film of 2017. The extremely divisive film sits at an adjusted score of 106.601% and landed at number eight in the Best Reviewed Movies of 2017.

Of course, this is a score of critic only reviews, as Rotten Tomatoes allows fans to write their own reviews of films. The Last Jedi was the center of controversy as it was revealed a group of angry fanboys brigaded the film’s score into the basement.

Here’s how the Best Sci-Fi films category looks:

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi — 106.601%
  • War for the Planet of the Apes — 105.882%
  • Bladerunner 2049 — 102.124%
  • Okja — 94.016%
  • Majorie Prime

    The Last Jedi’s score proves fans do not always agree with critics — landing at 91% there — as the film infamously received a 48% audience score. To say the film is the most divisive Star Wars film in the 40-year history of the franchise is an understatement.

    There’s more to this story, however. As much as the angry fanboys/girls are trying to tear down The Last Jedi, people are still going to see the film, and Episode VIII is poised to surpass the $1.3 billion mark, according to Box Office Mojo. This past weekend proves it, as the film garnered an impressive box office total of $4.3 million.

    Love it or hate it, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now the second highest grossing film in the Star Wars franchise, sitting behind The Force Awakens and just barely ahead of Rogue One.
