Critical Reception[edit]

I think it's worth mentioning in the "Talk" section that the user reviews for this movie on imdb are almost universally, highly critical, especially those reviews that have the highest number of "useful" reviews. Below is a link to the imdb user reviews, sorted by "most useful": A very quick scroll through reveals that it is pages and pages and pages of highly negative reviews before any positive review is offered, and then pages and pages and pages of negative reviews before another one is returned. In fact, with this sort, as of December 26th, 2016, there is exactly one positive review in the first 16 pages of reviews under the "most useful" sort. Said positive review is the only one in those 16 pages with a user rating of more than 5 stars out of 10, offering a rating of 9 stars out of 10; the vast majority of reviews offer a rating of just 1 star out of 10. I personally think this fact should be at least mentioned in the "Critical Response" subsection of the article, especially in light of the otherwise very favorable critical response, but the merits of user reviews are not something I will explicitly defend. I will leave this note up for discussion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:46, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

IMDb is generally not a WP:Reliable source. See Wikipedia:External links/Perennial websites#IMDb. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 23:46, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Would this constitute an exception, given that "Critical Reception" is about matters of opinion, and the source provided tends to indicate negative opinion? I.e. the pertinent information is not how accurate the opinion is but how accurately the opinion reflects its critical reception among users, especially on this scale? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:46, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Box office[edit]

The number is given in billions but I guess the right figure should be 2.068 millions, not billions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:55, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

That's 2-point-068 billion, i.e. just over 2 billion. I realize different countries use different digit separators, but Wikipedia uses '.' as the decimal point exclusively. See MOS:DECIMAL and MOS:DIGITS. --Fru1tbat (talk) 14:08, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

I don't know why Star Wars: The Force Awakens was just rated C-class?? I've translated this article in Vietnamese and I nominated it for featured articles in viwiki, but somehow people here protested because of the C-class in enwiki. Please someone tell me why!

I think that this article is deserved to rate B-class. Mintu Martin (talk) 02:59, 14 May 2017 (UTC)
