Wait a minute!!!!!I'm genuinely concerned we're already ruining it for you. I went into the movie completely ignorant and had no idea what people thought of it. I ignored every single review, stopped watching trailers for an entire year, stopped watching this thread once it was released, and went into the movie not knowing at all what to expect. I think walking into the theater completely naively was the way to go and I would suggest it to anyone else. I'm eager for you to see it too. I'd love to hear your perspective and any small things I may have missed. I've only seen it once and people that have seen it more than I have picked up on one or two fan moments I missed.
I'll post a big "Spoiler alert" warning whenever I talk about it from here on out. BUT- I will tell you that the scene where Chewie eats the big blue humanoid baby was really disturbing to me. I'm really surprised it didn't get a more adult rating for that scene alone.
I had skipped even your little post previously, because I didn't want to even hear what people thought of it until I got to see it. I loved it too. I also thought that Kylo Ren and others on the Dark side were pretty great. I've already joked about how much I like Kylo Ren's voice when he's behind the mask. Having jokes in the tense parts is classic Star Wars to me. I don't think it was Disney'd up. I love hearing that you were so excited to see it that you were downright emotional. I was too young or not born yet when they were originally released in theaters, but I got to see Empire Strikes back when it was digitally remastered and released in select theaters. I was evil and allowed to sneak in front of campers because a long time friend's sister was managing a theater in LA. Yup! I enjoyed being with "the man." I got just as excited and loved seeing it in the theater. When Yoda gave one of his classic speeches an audience member shouted "WORD" and the whole theater died laughing. It was great. I did camp out for Episode one No connections there! That was one of the funnest nights of my life. The other campers were such fun people. It was one huge party full of beloved nerds---doesn't get any better than that! Everyone was so nice to each other. Some campers even set up projectors and showed classic movies on the wall of the movie theater. When you're a Dad, you'll be able to tell YOUR kids about seeing this movie in the theater. So cool!i watched i wont spoil it but is amazing i dont wanna say this but i creid alot even on the funny parts ive never seen any of the movies in theaters revenge of the sith only came out when i was about 7 months old my only problem is that some of the jokes were put in dramtic moments and was i guess you could say disneyd up but kylo ren is awesome
I loved it, but I would probably tell you "no, don't bother." If you're not really into the originals, this new one works very hard to be similar in style to the originals. Maybe save it for a cheap movie rental and don't expect it to change your opinion.Saw the original film in 1977 aged 11.
Went to the cinema and saw it about 8 times, the only time i've multiple watched a film at the cinema.
Loved it (obviously) .
Wasn't so keen on the second one thought the third one was pretty good.
watching them again before the launch of the Episode One thing , i saw that they weren't actually very good after all so never went to see Jar Jar Binks and co.
Bearing in mind I dislike Star Trek, but adore Doctor Who, don't like most superhero movies except The Watchmen and a couple of recent Batmans and like good acting and plotting, should I bother with this new one ?
Blasphemer!!!!I loved it, but I would probably tell you "no, don't bother." If you're not really into the originals, this new one works very hard to be similar in style to the originals. Maybe save it for a cheap movie rental and don't expect it to change your opinion.
Alright, Delaney...I've been looking forward to a few minutes to pick apart your post and dish Star Wars with you (and anyone else is welcome!) Awww yeah...Two ladies and their droidsYes @Tidgy's Dad . You absolutely should.
I saw it on Sunday!!!!!!!
My range of emotions throughout the movie- and
Because Luke needed to start dancing or something. That got awkward.
OH MY GOSH! Of course there are some problems with it, but there are problems with every movie! Who saw that death coming? BECAUSE I DIDN'T SEE IT COMING. I honestly thought Kylo was going to ask Han to kill him, but whatever.
Who thinks Kylo looks like Snape? I wish he has left his helmet on until Rey asked him to take it off.
Whoa, stormtroopers have really good aim in this one! Finn is great, but I need to know how he survived that, since wasn't that his spine?? BB-8 is adorable, and I must figure out immediately how he rolls. Rey os great. Who thinks she's somehow a Skywalker, in a strange, contrived way?
Snoke is odd. Hux was great but I wished we saw more Phasma. I liked how Kylo slowly became less of a menacing presence and more of an angry teenager.
Can we talk about the fighting style? It's a lot more aggressive, but it really works. And everyone laughed at Kylo's hilt-sabers. Haha.
I walked out of the theater laughing, though, because of that scene. Why?! Luke's just out on planet Ireland and take freaking lightsaber GOSH.
It was great
Rey was really good. I may have liked Finn even more. I was also soooo grateful that it wasn't clean cartoons and more the style of the original movies. I desperately want to see it again. There were a few fan moments that I missed...When Rey has her crazy "force flashback/vision thingy" apparently you hear a mix of old and young Obi Wan speaking to Rey about how this is just the beginning. -I completely missed the voice! I also apparently missed a part where Rey is throwing around parts in the Millennium Falcon and supposedly she tosses the orb Luke and Obi Wan used in his lightsaber training. Dang it! I'll be looking for those next time!I have seen it twice now. It is a pretty satisfying movie. I like the casting and in particular like Rey. I also like that the main thrust of the movie isn't all computer generated images. They have left themselves a ton of directions to take the franchise in.
