My niece really wanted to see the first showing on Thursday evening (6 pm), so I got us tickets for it.

She now has no worries about her idiot brother spoiling the film for her.  :haz:

The cinema in my town did a total renovation this past year.  Nearly every room now has big recliners with drink holders.  Lots of space, and you can get to your seat with much greater ease.  Online reserved seating, too!  No waiting in line for tickets (if you don't mind paying the $3.00 convenience fee).

It’s been a long time since I’ve bought a ticket for a movie on opening day. Been burned too many times.  Like to wait and see what people say about them before I see one now.

Not sure how that really matters. Example: The Incredibles was universally acclaimed and has a 97% approval rating on RottenTomatoes yet you disliked it and thought it was boring. Fair enough. But if you asked virtually anybody, they would’ve recommended it, you would’ve seen it (because of the recommendation), but you would’ve disliked it anyway

There are people that I trust that have the same taste as I do. Plus when people say what they disliked or liked about something I can tell.  I didn’t see The Incredible’s when it first came out.   It wasn’t until later that I rented it from the library that I saw it.  I figured it wasn’t something that I would love but I gave it a chance.

Got tickets for this Friday in the late afternoon (Far East time).
Watching a Star Wars movie (or any other well-known franchise for that matter) here is nothing like in the states. That is, no matter how great and exciting it might be, the audience will be as emotional as Vulcans.

Early reviews are glowing. Hope it is as good as the reviewers are saying. This is promising. But I will probably wait until after the new year to go see it - avoid the crowds. I did that with the Force Awakens and went during a week day. Much more comfortable.

Has anyone here ever promised a buddy that you'd go see a movie together, but secretly gone beforehand by yourself so you could take it all in without any distraction, and then go again with your buddy pretending it's your first time?  I'm thinking of doing that for Last Jedi, also because I don't think I want to wait.

:lol: No

What distraction would there be going with a buddy?
