    Star Wars

    Has anybody seen it yet and please just give a thumb up or down? I think the promotional stuff is getting a little tiring. What does a Subway sandwich or a Ram pickup truck have in common with the movie?? By the way, I LOVED the first 3 movies and for 30 minutes, I tried to figure out who was the actor playing Luke Skywalker. Finally remember that we both went to Los Angeles City College at the same time, he took acting classes and I took technical set design.

    We went to see it on Saturday afternoon in IMAX and all 4 of us really liked it. I don't want to say anything else about it - but the theater was full and the crowd was in to it.

    My 18 yr old son has a friend that is a sci fi nerd, as are my ds and I . He didn't care for it , but we are going to see it and I expect we will enjoy it just fine.

    My theatre- major daughter saw it and declared two thumbs up...with " strong female role model"...whatever that means!
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    We are going to go see Star Wars after the New Year. We have never seen an IMAX film before. It will be our "date" day.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    As we speak my adult sons are at their 2nd viewing of the show! They obviously loved it and needed a second viewing to sort out all the questions and the "did you see that" kind of things...they are 34 & 36!

    Saw it at the IMAX (having had a quick crash 'reminder' of the original 3 films over the week prior) and really enjoyed it. Quite a few references to the original films, mainly well done (only one was, to me, a bit overkill), but not overly nostalgic and with the usual enjoyable JJ Abrams touches (some very good humour). I seem to enjoy JJ Abrams' style and had enjoyed the original 3 films, so I was looking forward to this, and was not disappointed.

    It was AWESOME! Saw it on Friday night and am going again on Saturday.

    Having a female who kicks butt was very 21st century. Loved seeing the characters from the original series. Love BB-8 (the small circular robot).

    Well worth the money.

    My hubs saw it Friday morning. He liked it, but he wasn't enjoying
    it as much as he normally would have.

    The reason he didn't enjoy it was because he knew that we were
    taking our little blue eyed girl in to vet, and having to say good bye
    to her.

    He DOES plan on seeing it again soon, maybe after the holidays if
    it is still playing.

    All five of my adult children (in their 30's) have seen it multiple times already as has my husband. They all give it two thumbs up.

    I made one of my sons who is a real Star Wars geek some pillow cases out of Star Wars fabric for Christmas. They even glow in the dark. I found the fabric on Fabric.com.

    Is Star Wars getting out of hand? Yes!

    Can't wait to hear the evaluation from my 2 kids, 52 and 54. I've never seen any of the movies, but maybe one day!

    I have never seen one of the star wars movies. My daughter has seen all of them and says it was the best yet...Her opinion...
