Except, you know, when they get paid better the higher the score. Disney has a history of pressuring reviewers to rate their movies higher than they actually wanted. Audience reviews are almost always going to be more accurate of how a movie actually turned out, even if there's a small amount of people running a campaign to change the score. I'm not saying the Last Jedi reviewers were bought and paid for, but there's been so many movies that have been that I don't think looking at critics reviews are announcing "This movie is good! See!" is a good way to judge a film's quality. IMDb currently has the movies score at 7.2, which is just higher than Solo, A Phantom Menace, and Attack of the Clones, which is about where most people I've talked to put it as well.
