Damn, Nothing will ruin Starr Wars for me... But why the hell is Aggie football trying it's best! It sounds like nobody knows what is going on, but where there is smoke! Damn!

PS: I just used the exact swear words in order as they appear in A New Hope... Or, at least those are the ones I heard cause my 11 year old was also pointing them out.

I watched it. Pretty interesting. Most of the STAR WARS stuff was known, but what little they had on the Kendo tourney was good. Only 30 minutes so worth a watch. Extended showing of the Finn-Stormtrooper saber fight.

I don't go to the movie theaters more than once to see movies usually, but damnit I may have to.

98% on RT, with several critics calling it the best movie of the year.

A few of them even say it's the best SW movie of all time.

Over 90% was wishful thinking I thought... Some critics will give it a bad score just to get hits on their site as people flock to the hate. But North of 95.... Wow! Color me super impressed.

Let me tell you how excited I am to go to work now!

So, having read a few spoiler-free reviews and just general thoughts, it looks like it is going to be a long ass time between Ep VII and VIII.

Looking for a way to keep from reading spoiler-ridden reviews? Try the Aggie Football forum on this very website. The Zoo is the perfect way to distract yourself for a long period of time.

Drama? Check.
Anger-inducing speculation about our beloved football team? Check.
Football dads interfering in the affairs of a major Div I program? Check.
No spoilers at all (so far) about Star Wars? You know it.

After reading the posts over there for a day, you'll need Star Wars so badly, it could be Soul Plane* bad and you'd come out feeling like a million bucks.




*I have not seen Soul Plane, but for whatever reason, that's what came to mind. Maybe it's awesome. Hey! Watching Soul Plane on repeat could be another way to pass the time spoiler free!

On the last day till Sithmas, my true love sent to me
Twelve Hans a shooting,
Eleven younglings dying,
Ten Sith Lords leaping,
Nine Ewoks dancing,
Eight handmaidens milking,
Seven Gungans swimming,
Six buns a Leia,
FIVE GOLD(en) LEADERS,
Four falling Mauls,
Three Nerf herders,
Two Rancor-dragons
and a Poe Dameron in a Force tree.

Collider Jedi Council review (no spoilers):

I've always sort of wondered if some of the rotten reviews for a movie that is in the 95-98% range are just doing so to be contrarian and pull clicks to their websites (if they have any) or blogs.

One of the things I admired about Roger Ebert was that he always reviewed films objectively. He admitted to not liking comic book movies but always reviewed them with the comic book fan in mind and compared them to other comic book movies. I think most critics are like that. Some critics are not like that. If they don't like action movies, they will never give action movies a good review. Then you have blowhards like Armond White who gives any movie above a 90% a bad review.

I've stopped watching twitch streams, reading reddit, and checking twitter to avoid spoilers. Popular twitch streamers with text-to-speech donations is recipe for disaster. I had a stream on last night in the background and wasn't really paying attention when I heard a donation go through and heard the word star wars and Leia and immediately clicked out before anything else was said. It was pretty close and it could have been someone trolling but there was no way I was going to stick around and find out. I've pretty much gone off the grid with the exception of this thread.

The Verge spoiler-free review (I skimmed) was pretty much what I expected honestly. Basically I was hoping for something that was a definite improvement on the prequels, but was also a spiritual successor to the originals. I think based on the Verge's review, that's what we are getting.

People asked me yesterday at our department meeting why I took a random Thursday off before Christmas. I told the I was going to see Star Wars. They wondered why I took the full day and I explained I was going to the marathon that starts at 3AM tomorrow morning. Multiple women (basic *****es) mocked me and mentioned how they'd never seen the films and they were glad that their husbands didn't watch that 'crap'. We are a small department, so I simply stated that their husbands also don't run marathons, do multi-week long hiking treks or keep any semblance of a physical shape other than round. I hate arrogant *****es who make fun of someone because of the movies they love or the music they listen to. Aggravated the hell out of me.
