Considering the script was probably written years ago before him being elected was a ridiculous thought, one has to REALLY reach to think this movie addressed the election

I agree but they are and I am laughing at them for doing it

Not to mention the fact that it takes place a long time ago in a Galaxy far far away.....how could it relate to Trump. Morons.

Watched ANH today in preparation. No matter how many times I see it, I will never not get chills during Luke's death star trench run.

I did ask this guy how old he was a point of reference....

He was 2 when he saw SW and 5 when he saw ESB......


So I kinda HOPE he was more moved by this movie...I mean a 2 year old was likely mostly just thinking "robots"....and a 5 year old was like "when can i get the action figures mommy".....

And someone that age never really saw them again until they were in their teens when VHS rentals became common in the late 80s.

but ok at least he wasn't a Gen Yer raised on the Prequels.

Well, having grown up on the VHS then seen the SE's in theater, then lived through the PT.... This might be the Star Wars movie that I've been waiting for to be made during my life time.

Because you know.... Prequels.

Gen Xers were born in the 60's and 70's. ThIs point makes no ****ing sense.

Can we go ahead and figure out the TexAgs go-to for Rogue One now?

If it is as awesome as reported, where will it rank among all the Star Wars movies?

If it sucks, is it because it occurs prior to A New Hope and is therefore a prequel (of sorts)?

Pffffft......


Whatever....when sci-fi prior to 1977 consisted of

a. flying saucers tied to strings
or
b. cerebral stuff no kid could understand like 2001
or
c. still watching Star Trek reruns
or
d. this crap http://kernelmag.dailydot.com/issue-sections/headline-story/15261/the-world-before-star-wars-sci-fi-1976/

SW was a godsend.



I actually had a weird Star Wars experience - I think - I didn't see it until July of 1977 and had not heard about it.

My parents had to drag me to it kicking and screaming because I hated sci-fi movies so bad.

I was living in Seoul South Korea until July of 1977. And in those days movies were not released internationally of course, not like now. And on the military bases we usually got movies 6-9 months after they were released in the US. So we had not yet heard about this movie Star Wars when we shipped back stateside.

We landed in LA and drove to my grandparents house in Las Vegas (Henderson actually). After a day or so acclimating to the time change my parents wanted to take me and my sister to see this movie Star Wars. I didn't have any friends there of course, had not talked to anyone about it and had never heard of it. It sounded stupid to me. I threw an 11 year old fit and very stubbornly went along saying how dumb it was and how much I hated sci fi movies.

LOL. Well I could not have been more wrong and I was just blown away of course. I came out of the theater just marvelling and begging to go see it again. I did see it several more times that summer once we settled in at our next base (Ft. Leavenworth Kansas).

Really intrigued to see if the ending is what we all think it will be or if there will be a surprise element to it. Saw some on twitter said it's a great ending, so not sure what that means.

Anyone think we'll have some SW Rebels character cameos?
