Default Star Wars

Anyone seeing Star Wars tonight? I'm in line for concessions; I'll probably get our popcorn right as the credits roll.

Am taking a "long lunch" tomorrow, catching a matinee at a small neighborhood theater near my house. As it gets closer, I'm pretty pumped up!!

Here are a few thingos I'm glad I picked up before the total craziness hit (talk about hot market)... as if collecting baseball cards wasn't dorky enough!!

Just got done watching it in 3D. WOW!!! I was 15 when the first one came out and I liked the new one more and for me it is tough to beat the first one. Main reason I liked it more is because of the great job Abrams does with the incorporation of the old stories and characters . It brought back a lot of memories of when I was a kid. Great feeling!

JT- haven't cracked any or gotten any graded, the raw ones came that way... and the Fett came graded. I've picked up a handful in the past 10 years (including these), but most of the ones I still have were picked up at flea markets in the early 90's as a 12-13 year old trying to "reconnect with my youth". I can't believe I was already thinking like that at 12, but I guess it goes hand in hand with my card collecting.

I also really liked the movie. Won't go as far as saying I liked better than Star Wars or Empire, but it was really good. Agree that having the old actors made so much difference, and totally TOTALLY re-connected me to childhood (almost eerily) as I watched.

I have been debating on watching in 2-D or 3-D. I think 3-D would be awesome till I seen how long the movie is. Long 3-D movie have always made my eyes hurt.

One thing I dislike about living out in the middle of nowhere is there are no IMAX theaters close. WOW would Star Wars be awesome in a dome IMAX in 3-D.

Ben, I strongly recommend the 3D version, if only for one still shot (I won't spoil it by saying what that shot is, but you'll know it when you see it). I've had issues in the past with 3D as well - Avatar and Transformers 4 both gave me huge headaches for example - but I had no issues with Star Wars.

i saw it yesterday morning...in 3d...in reclining lounge chairs...well worth it!!!!

I too really enjoyed it...I'm not a huge SW fan/groupie...but I love the way the latest has the same look and feel as the original...no ridiculous special effects...more about the characters.

I see lots of criticisms of it...I presume from the hard core fans...but I really enjoyed it and would see it again.

Never saw any of these. Just didnt have the feel for that Star Wars/Star Trek stuff.
But i heard on ABC news, that Daniel Craig (007) made a cameo appearance.
Still, i wont be seeing this one either. Not my thing.
And that Hobbit wizard stuff too.....
Now i did like that Transformers movies.
