Brought the kids yesterday, it was awesome. The best by a MILE.

The best what? Please don't say Star Wars movie...

 

Hahahahahaha!!!! After I saw "The Force Awakens" for the first time it was like this:

 

A NEW HOPE

EMPIRE

RETURN

FORCE AWAKENS

 

 

Then I saw it for a second time:

 

A NEW HOPE

FORCE AWAKENS

EMPIRE

RETURN

 

 

I'm going tomorrow night for my third time!

 

Jedi prediction using the Force:

 

FORCE AWAKENS

A NEW HOPE

EMPIRE

RETURN

 

 

LOL!

That kind of progressive insanity is what this guy went through:

I can imagine you talking to your daughter...

"Hey Zoe? Sweet pea? Come on out. Let's go watch Force Awakens just one more time."

Just saw it with my wife and 30 year old son. WOW. emotions of the first trilogy just rushed in full force from beginning to end. Had to remind myself to breathe. One horrible negative thing about the movie: God i'm getting old :|

Next viewing will be with my 10 year old grandson who was sick tonight. I baptized him into the Force last month watching 4-6 for the first time. I will not however, expose him to the Farce of 1-3.

Why shouldn't he say "Star Wars movie"? Just because YOU didn't like it?

 

Perhaps you would be happier staying in the "Star Wars is overrated" thread.

No, because I can't see how anyone can rate it higher than empire for sure. while I appreciate your concern for my happiness I think I'll continue to visit and post in any thread I enjoy. For those that can't handle a discussion of differing opinions.....

Practice what you preach. It's rude to tell others "Don't say......". It's rude to tell others what to say or not say. If someone thinks it's the best Star Wars film ever, then respect that opinion, even if it differs from yours.

Awright guys. Do you know what happens when you make the Math Porn Star mad? Believe me...you don't wanna know. Imagine one of these stuck in that place where the sun don't shine.

Here is how Rey came into the scene. Just as it was explained by Shmi regarding Anikins birth and confirmed by Qui-Gon Jinn, wait for it, wait for it...... Medi-chlorians! It explains everything! The force Awakens! A child that could easily abandoned is one that the conception could not be explained! It also keeps the parallelism in tact and generates the whole "who is Rey's parents" questions and plot thickiners that can can be milked for at least 2 more movies. You heard it here 1st!!

According to my buddy Eric, he's heard that The Force Awakens still may overtake the all-time #1 grosser, Avatar, this weekend and by next weekend at the outside. Projections for final numbers are $900 million in the US alone, which would best Avatar by $140 million domestically. Pretty staggering.

I finally got around to seeing this movie tonight. I thought it was okay but it didn't thrill me like the old movies did. It seemed to kind of drag at the beginning and all the build up and then nothing at the end. The special effects were very well done though.

Don't you think our ages might have something (or a lot) to do with our level of being thrilled? I was 4-11 years old when the originals came out. Sure, I liked this new one but I'm 43...I just don't get as "thrilled" for these movies as I did as a little kid.

I thought about that, but I don't think so. I was 17 when I saw the first movie, so I wasn't a little kid. I just didn't think Ren was believeable at all. It Just seemed to lack any depth at all which surprised me a little. The scenes seemed done poorly. Maybe it'll seem better once the second movie comes out.

Ok, not a little kid...but a 17 year old kid living in the late 70s. That's a far cry from mid-50s you now. But ok.

All I'm saying is that I don't think it's just because I was young. Star Wars was really the first of its kind when it came out. It was groundbreaking in a lot of ways for the sci-fi genre. I just didn't see anything that special about this movie. But don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. It just wasn't as impressive as it could have been.

I've seen it 4 times so far, it really gets better the more you watch it. Remember, it's been 10 years. It's a lot harder to just jump into something with wild abandon. It was like this when TPM came out in 99 too. Unfortuantely The Prequels pretty much fell on everything, where this does not. There's a reason it's gonna knock Titanic and Avatar off, because it's good.

And because it was good, it will be surpassed in first week sales by Episode VIII. Fans can't wait to see what happens to Luke, Rey and Ren. If Episode VIII succeeds, then VII, VIII and IX may end up being the all-time best selling films.
