Lise,

I remember when the first one came out.  We saw the cover of Time Magazine in Paris and promptly bought it.  We read all about it and saw it when were back home in LA.  It was revolutionary filming and thinking at the time.  We will probably wait for the video.  A

Yes, it was such a blast from the past with many of the same themes as the first 3 movies. Very retro in all the best ways, bringing back the "oldies but goodies" actors and droids.

When I was a kid and went to the theatre to see the first Star Wars movie I didn't know anything about the characters or actors. I got to the ticket counter and 3 of the attendants started squealing, saying "OMG, it's Princess Leia!!!". I had no idea what they were talking about and they kept babbling on and asking me for an autograph. At least they didn't think I was Jabba the Hutt!

I fell asleep through the first Star Wars and have no interest in seeing the second--I sleep better in my own bed (LOL). We had dinner last night with friends who saw it and said they were very disappointed (he's a film editor) and not to waste our money on it. My taste runs more to films like The Danish Girl, Suffragette, etc.

I have never seen any of them all the way through. I was in college on my first attempt at the movie well over 30 years ago, but too many midterms prompted a mid movie nap.

Have not been to a movie in at least 15 years.  I do watch movies sometimes on YouTube or Hulu.

Several people already "spoiled" the ending of Star Wars on Twitter and Facebook.  Not that it matters to me... but quite a few people were really upset.

Lise, I have not yet.  I was waiting to hear reviews from my friends, but only because JJ Abrams was at the helm and he had such a disrespect for Star Trek, he should have been arrested for committing crimes against humanity for "Into Darkness."  I saw that on a free ticket and wanted my money back!  I was cursing the screen from the very start of the movie... deep breath... relax...

 

Our town has a second-run budget theater and an older theater that has $5 Tuesdays, so I'll wait to see it then.  So precious few movies are worth the full $20-$30 ticket price these days.
