Back in late August my youngest and I had planned too but then the move happened.  I will see it eventually but 12/18 isn't going to be in the cards...

Be sure to post any surprises and tell us all about the ending.

So is mark hamill in the movie or what?

I saw the original star wars at the cinema.  Late 70's.

Oh' and vile, keep a lookout if there are any squarebodies in any scenes. 73-87's!!

Yeah i was kidding too, dont spoil it. Unless they went back in time and drove a squarebody. Haha

I dont do theaters either, i get nervous in crowds. And, i dont wait in lines either. Im not special, just hate lines. Dont tell anybody, but when in traffic i use my badge and hit the breakdown lane.  Total abuse.

ill wait for it to be released on DVD. im not super excited about it but i guess it cant be any worse than episodes I, II and III.

or can it?

Post by: philo_beddoe on December 18, 2015, 06:32:58 PM
I have to agree with flatblack, those episodes stunk. Star wars, empire and return of jedi were awesome.  Just like rocky 1-3.

Some movies were not meant to have a sequel, like jaws and smokey and the bandit. Gross!

My son called me as he was walking out of the theater and was so exited... Said I had to see it with him next Tuesday... Guess it is father and son time...

Post by: VileZambonie on December 19, 2015, 12:52:47 PM
Yes, nobody post any spoilers! I will say this, I've been a mega fan since the beginning but I HATED the prequels. I also despised the special editions. Needless to say I was pleased to learn that this movie would not be influenced by George Lucas. Not sure what happened to that man, how could you make something so epic and iconic and turn it into...that? It couldn't have all been about $ anyway

I did not wait in line and I also do not generally go to the movies but there was no way I waiting to see this. You can buy tickets in advance and pick your seats like you would do on an airplane for the imax theaters. I saw it in imax 3D which I was skeptical about because the last 3D movie I saw was Jaws 3D LOL but I was pleasantly surprised. the screen was huge, the sounds was incredible and the 3D wasn't cheesy at all.

If you like the originals you must check out the despecialized editions http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Harmys-STAR-WARS-Despecialized-Edition-HD-V25-MKV-IS-OUT-NOW/id/12713

and if you liked the originals you must go see this. Get a seat in the back of theater if you don't like people behind you, you'll forget you're even in a theater. There are small nuances as in anything that you might not like but overall I think most will thoroughly appreciate this. My woman couldn't have cared less about going and when she left she admitted she loved it, she cried and said "I feel like a different person now" lol

Post by: Stewart G Griffin on December 19, 2015, 07:41:46 PM
My philosophy regarding Star Wars is i've only seen 4,5, and 6, which, to me are really 1,2, and 3.   i didn't see 1,2, and 3 and don't plan on seeing 7,8, or 9.  i feel i can still celebrate the spirit of Star Wars in the present by admiring 4,5, and 6.

There was, as you may remember, a square in Star Trek 4 which had a prominent role.

I now have seen all 7 Star Wars movies on the big screen. (I may have just given away my age.....)

Funny part is I am not a fan of sci-fi. I'm more into history, and I NEVER go to the movie theaters......wierd.

Why, yes Vile, i am watching the new star wars movie. Actually i just watched it with my son. I thought it was awesome. The original cast, the bad guys (the first order), even a glimpse of vadar and the "dark side" theme music. And of course, skywalker, i had no idea about the ending. I avoided all news about the movie, and it was worth it. I didnt even know about Solo.

I do have one question, why and how did that girl have the "the force" with her?
Title: Re: Any other Star Wars nerds going to see the new movie?
Post by: VileZambonie on May 01, 2016, 07:14:49 PM
Lot's of speculation there. Could be Luke's daughter, could be a Kenobi, who knows how they'll play it out. did you see the new movie coming out is supposed to be before the first one?

Post by: 1967KaiserM715 on May 01, 2016, 08:46:18 PM
I just watched the new movie as well, I speculate it is Luke's daughter, age is about right, she seems younger then Hans son, plus when she found Luke saber, the flash back sort of had her envisioning when her parents left, which could be when Luke fled after kylo turned dark.

Post by: philo_beddoe on May 01, 2016, 10:12:56 PM
Yeah, that could be. Cant believe hans got it that way, his son is pretty dark. But thats what i really liked about the movie, NOT that predictable. Perhaps we all thought luke and the gang would all be out fighting bad guys. That would have been predictable and boring. Not so,,,thats why it was so good. And its really hard these days to make a good sequel. They gave us just enough for us in the 40-50 year range and some new characters for the newer younger crowd. Very well scripted.
Interesting...

Ohhhh, before the "first one" the "real" and normal first one. I hated I, II and III. So thats it for rey and finn? I though it was cool when rey started to overpower kylo. I believe we'll see them again, obviously.

Vile what do you think if on the last scene where luke turns around and pulls off the hood, instead it shows him reaching out with the black vadar hand and grabbing the saber, all as the camera zooms out.

A lot of people thought that he should have done something other than look. It certainly would have been more suspenseful if he had a reaction. I've been waiting for you Rey, or force grabbed the lightsaber or if he threw her off the cliff or something other than looking at her and probably thinking, I only made enough nacho's for me!

Post by: philo_beddoe on November 01, 2016, 09:11:17 PM
Ok, reason is they are showing all the star wars movies to get everyone hyped up for rogue one.  And we just watched the force awakens, and the question just kind of hit me. But i dont see how they can explain rey that far back. Or do you mean the next rey/fin episode?

Not as excited to see this one and probably from the trailers revealing too many parts that are cheesy. I'm more curious than anything but it's obvious Disney is looking for ROI and plan to cash in on this. I just hope it's decent and that the trailers aren't a true reflection of what this will be.
Title: Any other Star Wars nerds going to see the new movie?
Post by: philo_beddoe on December 12, 2016, 11:32:53 AM
I thought force awakens was real good, considering the time frame and all, the new characters worked out well. As long as they dont overdo it, rogue one should be ok. Who is doing vadars voice, james earl jones...still?

But regardless...its a new stars wars movie. Thats exiting.

Funny that you say that, a thousand seats and someone has to pick the seat in front of you, i mean really??!!!!  Not this time, wide open.

Anyway, i never seen vadar so upset before, that scene where he stormed in at the end, he was ripped! And how did they get that shot of the young princess? Lots of makeup? Lol

Overall, i thought it was good.

The climax, what everyone wanted to see. Rumors were that he was supposed to be in the film more and very villainous but we only got a taste of Vader, not that pansy they made in the prequels. They have all of these spin offs that are supposed to happen like Han Solo, Boba-Fett, Kenobi etc. All we need is Vader

I am looking forward to seeing EP 8
Title: Re: Any other Star Wars nerds going to see the new movie?
Post by: philo_beddoe on January 12, 2017, 10:13:16 PM
I agree with the pansy from the prequels. Yeah, it would have been nice to see a little more of the ruthless vadar in his prime.

Yup, also looking forward to 8.

"Fox let Lucas pass up an additional $500,000 directing fee in return for keeping licensing and merchandising rights for himself -- a decision that would cost the studio billions."

From the linked article (and other's I've read), it seems that retaining the rights for licensing and merchandising was akin to being able to print money.

Same reason a 2018 chevy truck wont be a classic or collectable 40 years from now. The era is gone.

I think people will always be nostalgic. If your first truck was a 2018 GMC, in 30 years you'd probably miss that truck especially because in 30 years trucks will probably all be electric egg shaped fold out plastic rubber maid containers...

Speaking of being nostalgic, I just saw someone selling a Simplicity lawn tractor like I used to have...suddenly I'm going, I need that, it sold before I could inquire about it and now I am on a quest to find another one. When I was a kid I would do wheelies all the way up the driveway on that thing.

Merchandising made Lucas one rich man that's for sure. I still have a lot of my original Star Wars toys

Okay so I went and saw it this morning with my woman. I see irony in my post which made me laugh when I came on here but....

always emotion is the future. You must unlearn what you have learned. Your friends you see...

#yoda #nospoilers

All I can say is go see it, enjoy it, process it. It's a tough thing to have had the originals in your life, then the totally disrespected originals, then the prequels which you either love or hate no in between, and now the forward direction. I get the marketing, I get the die hards, I get the younger gen. Form your own opinion after you see it and absorb it as it takes processing. It's emotions, rationale, critique, atmosphere etc. Beyond that, anyone reading this deserves spoilers so stop reading past this point until you've seen it okay? Spoilers may happen past this post.... You've been warned so feel free to post your thoughts after this post.

Well i caved and went and saw it today. $5 dollar matinee. Not bad. Anyway..if you take it all in as vz stated, and i still am, well, i thought it was great overall. Lenthy yes, but i like long movies, 3 hr max anyway. So, a new war and a new rebellion, all of our originals are gone, the humans anyway. We still have chewy and the droids, oh..what ever happened to lando calrissian? Anyway, great action and unsuspected twists. I like being surprised in movies...good or bad. I dont think anybody likes easy pridictable stuff. The movie wasnt hard to follow. I usually have to watch these sci fy movies with my wife so i dont get lost.

Anyway, i have one question. I saw this poster on my way in the theatre.
So what is this now...!!!!?

* spoilers *

Definitely not what I was expecting. I could nit pick it for sure but I found the Mary Poppins scene to be so incredibly silly I said to myself that this scene must have been post-mortem CGI or once Carrie Fisher saw it herself she dropped dead.

Solo? It's a spin off cash grab by disney that has been destined to be a train wreck from it's inception. You would have to put a gun to my head to make me pay to see that one. There's only one Han Solo. I'm happy they are giving us something we've been missing since what 1984? So I won't be a hater on where they are taking it, at least not at the moment.

Wow! I totally agree on the mary poppins scene, how embarrrassing and stupid. The finn character acts too much like someone fighting on the streets in a gang in 2017.  Not in a sci fy thriller in a galaxy far far away. And i didnt notice this until others explained it. But kylo ren is sort of just a punk who cant control himself, like road rage, like he needs a time out. Vadar was always in control and never embarrassed himself and had a tissy fit like kylo. Vadar was always commanding and scary when he was on the scene. But at least snokes told kylo to take off that stupd mask. I'm not complaining about the movie, but when you compare it to the genuine article, well, you know what i mean. Oh, and one question a lot of folks are asking...where the blazes did snokes ever come from anyway? Did the emporer crap him out or something?

There's a total discontinuity between TFA and TLJ. Once I fully digested this movie, well it was like burping up high school lunch for me. I just feel like they just took a bunch of scenes, spliced them together and high fived each other because they know no matter what, it's about to start raining money. I said I wouldn't be a negative nancy but I can't help myself and feel that they deserve critics...and again if you are reading this you have been warned -spoilers.

The whole snoke thing was a joke, his character was flawed form the beginning but instead of rectifying it and making something out of it they made a cgi freddy crougar in a 70's gold dress. He's so powerful he can fling you around with a thought but he cuts in half like a hot knife through butter. Rey holds the light saber like a wiffle ball bat but is suddenly so powerful she can crush mountains with a thought and not because of her lineage but just because. Luke was so courageous he defenselessly confronted Vader and the Emperor on his own virtually destroying the Empire because he was so courageous but now he's a chicken hermit who went emo? There was this whole map to Luke Skywalker thing like he was their secret weapon and something big was going to happen but they basically ruined his legacy and the whole reveal to Luke. Very pc throughout, the finn and rey thing dissolved so that he could hook up with the asian girl? The slow speed chase? lol Phasma's eye is revealed, oooh that was suspenseful. The purple haired admiral putting the hero in his place. The majority of it was a let down and mediocre at best and I could pick it apart all day long but what's the point? All I see are life long fans tearing it apart and fanboys defending it with their life. It's worse than trump vs hilary. I'm definitely not going to see it a second time, maybe I'll just download it and get some of my money back  ;D

Yes. Ralph and Potsie will race the new and improved Han solo and Lando in the Kessel run. A CGI Joanie will fall in love with Chachi after he rescues her from space Fonzie, who was on his way to turn her over to CGI Jabba the Hutt. After they complete in less than 12 parsecs they stop at the cantina where Woody is serving up blue milk. I can't wait to see it

Hey, finally went to Fiesta Mexicanna. Awesome food, wife loved it...got stuffed!! Just wish they had regular black beans instead of the "cat puke" refried beans. (Although they still tasted great). Will be going back soon!

That place is the best. They do have black beans, you probably had to ask for them. Although I never liked refried beans I had them there and they were actually really good. I haven't been there since March but we plan to go next week hopefully.

No, I'm very skeptical after that last train wreck. It can't be worse than TLJ but I'm not holding my breath anymore. I'm not even anxious to see it because of the taste the last one left in my mouth. I can't believe they released that movie still. After watching it again it just got worse for me and like many made me lose all interest.

If it's not they will surely tank the brand. Ruin Johnson already did a good job of turning off millions of people to it. Disney thought that anything Star Wars is gold so no need to ensure a good story. The dumb fans will just be in awe of visual effects. WRONG
Title: Re: Any other Star Wars nerds going to see the new movie?
Post by: philo_beddoe on April 20, 2019, 07:55:46 AM
Thats very true! A solid story line will ALWAYS trump any kind of visual effect, even bad acting. Especially for such a powerful saga as Star Wars....[once was].

I believe it was a bit different, it showed a lot more fighting and stuff, longer. Plus the movie theater effects and all,,,kinda puts you in the mood. Maybe it was the evil emperor laughing at the end.  Just have a gut feeling we'll be impressed. Clinging on to high hopes...

Oh well, its May 4th.

Haven't watched it yet. Not Boba Fett, but a dude who looks like him. From what I know it's a series on Disney's new streaming service. Everyone has their a la carte channels. Cable TV will be a thing of the past. I'll probably watch it this week or weekend and see if it's any good.

must add that i got the new lion king on amazon instead of going to the theaters with the kids. im glad because they lost interest within 10 minutes and i was done with it once it hit me they pretty much changed too much.

Yes, they did a pretty good job with the Mandalorian. It was better than all of the last movies  ;D

Happy cinco de mayo

Cancel culture and presentism are real, unfortunately. Best thing you can do when you don't align with a companies decisions or direction is stop feeding them your $

Ok, just catching up here. I'm sure you have been watching the Boba Fett series, teaming up with Mando, and I heard they are bringing back Carano. I know, Disney is real woke and left, that's the sucky part....

Firing her was RIDICULOUS! The cancel culture is so biased. Same with Roseanne even though I couldn't care less about her show. Then we have Whoopi who gets a suspension for two weeks for smack talking the jews and even uses a fake jewish name as her own. Double standards much? The right thing to do would be to uncancel her. Would she come back though?

I agree totally. The hypocrisy is extreme with the woke left, beyond understanding. I wonder what would happen if a republican said "white lives matter" I mean, do they? Just don't walk around the CNN studio with a black light, lol.

Anyway, I only heard she may come back. I hope so, I like her a lot. She is anti vax, anti mask, anti voter fraud, etc. etc....
