I'm heading to a 12:30 AM showing tonight with 11 other people. All the other showings - 11:45, 12:15, 12:45, 1:00 are all sold out. I cant wait either. Advanced screenings say that its better than all the others except A New Hope and Empire. The Emperor supposedly steals the show.

Sorry, but am I the only one out there that is not into Star Wars?

If you are into it, whatever makes you happy, but I was never a fan.

Let the beatings begin - just watch my glasses.

Well I almost majored in Math, settled with finance, and where glasses (well, contacts) and I don't like Star Wars. BUT, I'm considering renting them all and watching them to see what the fuss is all about which I imagine isn't much. But I'm allowed to say that. I'm best friends with the biggest star wars nut alive. She payed $50 for this big ass cardboard thing of the little alien dude in star wars. She also has this big Pepsi thing with a star wars robot. Sorry I don't know all the names. You get the jist. She has the light sabers, the figurines, the posters. I tried to watch the first one with her once and zoned out but maybe I didn't give it a fair shot. But I love Natalie Portman and the commercials for this one do look good.

I remember going to the third Star Wars when I was kid. That makes me feel sort of old.

I was never into it but I knew a girl who slept with a plastic Darth Vader head every night next to her on her pillow.

I really liked the original trilogy, was obsessed with it in middle school.

Thought the first two prequels were crap. Hope this one is good.

Well, I just returned from the screening and here's my grade : A- . It was good, but a bit underwhelming. You liked it, it kept your attention way better than the first two prequels becuase it actually had a story to tell, but the beginning got bogged down once again in the stupid conspiracies and clone army/droid army red herring. Lucas really didnt need to make those as complicated as he did. You can never quite follow who is siding with or attacking who, or why. The second half was a great tragedy, very Faustian. A bit darker and more powerful than the original trilogy, but the characters never really connect with you like Han Solo or Princess Leia. Good movie, but not great. Go see it if you like Star Wars, sci-fi, or a good action flick. If you like romance, pick something else. Like Made in Heaven. Anyone remember that flick from the 1980's?

Peace

Yep, your correct Joe. He's written out the outline for movies 7,8,and 9, but he said he wont spend 10 more years of his life on them. They are making a Star Wars television series (live action) this year I think. Then he and Steven Spielberg will be spending their creative energies on the fourth Indiana Jones. This Indiana Jones will take place in the 1950s with an older Indiana Jones. After this, Lucas wants to make artsy, avant garde kind of movies, that mainstream America wont like. Stuff a little like his first movie, THX. Really, I think thats a terrible idea. I tend to think that Lucas isnt really a great filmmaker - he was just incredibly lucky that he had a good idea in Star Wars and Indiana Jones, and a collaborator like Steven Spielberg. Speilberg offered to direct Attack of the Clones, actually, and Revenge of the Sith, but Lucas wouldnt let anyone touch his babies. They would have been greater movies if he had. Speilberg is great with the human, emotional side of a movie. And he always puts in a scene with a wide-eyed kid going "oohhh" and some sort of majestic view or revelation, with an awe-inspiring John Williams theme playing in the background (think ET and the spaceship, or Close Encounters, or even AI). Well, enough movie trivia, just another hobby of mine. Just too bad George is going back to what he did for most of the 80's - making poorly received movies. I dont think its a step in the right direction for him. He should take directing and scriptwriting classes with his buddy Steve. Harrison Ford once told him, "George, you can type this shit, but you sure as hell cant say it". Even he knew there was bad dialogue in Star Wars.

I thought Episode 3 was better than sex.

But it's been a while for me, so my perception might be a bit distorted.

It had some flaws, but DAMN it felt complete to me. It made the whole thing feel really complete. And I wrote down a bunch of stuff Yoda and Palpatine said, during the movie. things like "fear of loss leads to the dark side"...interesting concept..."you must let go of everything you fear to lose"...interesting thing to tell a kid. It was all pretty mindblowing for me.

Oh yeah, and Obi Wan is possibly my fav SW character now.

The scene where he has to sit in the Council Chambers waiting really got to me. I was just thinking "Imagine how anxious you'd be just sitting there waiting and knowing etc. etc." (I'll leave out the spoilers).

I likened it to the battle of DP - needing to let go.

Well this is a pleasant surprise. No pretend neo-conservative anti-capitalist crypto-fascist critical snobbery about a mass media film. I was expecting lots of...'Oh, I just luuuuuuuuuuuurve french subtitled films'

Well done all. You've all gone up in my estimations. I can't wait to see the new Star Wars. But someone, please tell me, does Yoda fight the Emperor ? And if he does, does he make a better account of himself than he did when he was fighting Christopher Lee ?
