Anybody get their tix for VII? I managed to sneak in an order for the first Imax3D showing in Houston before the entire movie ticket ecosystem collapsed a few monday nights ago.

When I was 4, my dad took me to the movies to see Return of the Jedi and I even got Darth Vader's autograph out by the box office (still framed and on the wall). It was awesome.

Thoughts on the trailers/plots/etc?

Only 6 more weeks... 8-)

The Jar Jar Binks theory is fascinating.

The cinematography, the special effects, the new characters, the storyline were all excellent. I'm sure I'll go see it again!

I'm guilty of seeing it twice,,, first time was on the IMAX 3-D, then we caught it again last night at the draft house down the street.

Definitely better than Episodes 1-3, it's basically A New New Hope. Some more character development would have been good, I'd say my biggest complaints center around what isn't in it instead of what is. I still enjoyed it and think it measured up considering the expectations.

I loved it.

Along with what has been said, I thought Kylo was one of the most interesting Star Wars characters they have ever used.

Good to hear everyone likes it. I'm looking forward to seeing it, but it will probably be a couple of weeks yet. I'm not the biggest SW fan, but I've seen them all and I'm sure I'll enjoy all the new ones.

See it even if you've heard "crucial" spoilers..It's not all about the plot, which is extremely predictable anyway (and telegraphs coming events continually)... but it has the same fun and joy as the initial SW Hope.

I did see it just prior to Christmas and I thought was well done. A nice way to reboot the franchise. Better enjoy them, because there will be a new one every year or so for the foreseeable future between the continuing story and the stand alone films.

I saw it on opening night and the next week with the kids. So great, can't wait till it comes out on video! I love the new characters, can't wait to see where they go.

Anybody get their tix for VIII? We'll be at the same theater for the first Imax 3D as for VII & RogueOne.

Yep, got my ticket about a week ago. Probably gonna watch it a couple of times, take advantage of Movie Pass.

We weren't all that happy with it.

Post subject:  Re: Star Wars

Yeah, easily the worst in the Star Wars franchise. So much to pick apart. Disney just broke Star Wars.

I'll be seeing it Xmas weekend. I definitely take critic reviews with a grain of salt (I wonder what MG things of the new entry?), but the current consensus is that it's a good film. Metacritic score is 86/100 and Rotten Tomatoes is 93%. I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan, but I can enjoy them just fine. I start checking out when a movie is formulaic or "Disneyfied", though, and if you look at the franchise in it's entirety you can clearly see repeating patterns.

Yeah, we both agreed that it was missing the distinct Star Wars feel that made them unique. We walked out feeling like they are taking it the Marvel/Avengers route where each movie is a standalone. Seems like they're more concerned with making a good movie than telling a good story. For all the criticisms of the Prequels, at least they told the story and gave answers. This one gave about zero or unsatisfying answers to the questions we had been asking each other for the last two years.

You two are welcome to your opinions, but I have only seen (on facebook) or heard good things about the movie. I wonder what moviegeekjn thinks, but he never comes here anymore.

I won't see it until it's on dvd or whatver, though. (being hearing impaired and having social anxiety, sitting in a movie theatre isn't at the top of my to do list).
