I bought tickets for Sunday night. Wife just called. She stopped by the theatre and got them to swap them for the 7:00 showing tonight. Last four seats for that showing. Said it wouldn't be the same if we didn't go opening night.

Now if I can just get her to wear the Leia costume later this could, could vie for one of the greater days of my life.


You, sir, are winning at life.

Cutting off liquids now. At least until I get my Collectible cup in the theater, at which point I will sip slowly throughout the movie.

It's scary how some of us think alike!

Anybody else carry dental floss in their pocket... nothing worse than getting that kernel wedged in there 5 minutes into the movie and spending the next 2 hours messing with it!!!

Also did you give her a test to verify her Star Wars fandom? Maybe she was just trying to impress you? What if she asks you a bunch of questions? What are her fan theories?

What if... and I don't want to put this in your head and ruin this entire relationship that I'm sure is themed for a Mos Eisley themed wedding... but what if her favorite character is Jar Jar?
That's exactly what I'm worried about. We had dinner last night and I talked about the movie and how excited I was. She began to tell me her favorite ones were the prequels and she even said she doesn't remember all of TFA. I began to cry in the inside. I begged her to go watch TFA before seeing TLJ. She said she was going to watch it today after work. I swear I wish I was making this story up. On the bright side, my sister told me that my brother-in-law bought 2 Imax for this Sunday. My sister hates Star Wars but she's going to put up with it because of what I did.

*I know I made a huge mistake
I hope you close the deal with this one.

Then I hope you post pics so we can all be like





Dude.

Well. ****ing. Played.
I'm still ****ing laughing at this

So we can have open talk on this thread later tonight, right? Spoilers are okay on this thread, but not the discussion thread... Correct?

I had a damn kidney stone for TFA. Loved the movie, but it was a hell of a time near the end of the show.

Watched Jedi Council today, and it seems to me they are hiding their disappointment and saying the company line. That has me worried. They don't seem very enthused.

In the theatre. Some chick wearing a Mandalorian costume. She's like 4'7". I asked wasn't she a little short for a Mandalorian? Other nerds laughed at her.

Not as good as the Phantom Menace. Hard to post more because they are monitoring screen usage evidently.

Hopefully the Empire will do well here.

You're right, I'm sorry


Get this fake apology out of here. You are a garbage person.

You clearly seeked out spoilers and posted them all here to try to spoil everyone you could. That's just pathetic.

I'll be getting in touch with staff to get you the longest ban possible, hopefully perma.

Well, I don't even know how to begin to gather my thoughts. So much to say, so much to process.

Firstly, I'll get the "easy" stuff out of the way. Movie is great. It has a LOT of unexpected twists and turns, and is almost entirely unpredictable. (Provided you weren't spoiled.)

The perfomances were fantastic, especially Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.

However, I do have a few nitpicks. Spoilers below.

1. Phasma was basically a throwaway character. What a waste. (At least she didn't go out like Fett.)

2. Luke was great, but, I am pretty disappointed we never really got to see him kick ass one last time. Sure, that last scene was great, but it kind of sucks we don't see him truly show off his force powers, or show off in a lightsaber fight. Up until the Yoda scene (Yoda!!!), I was not really enjoying his character. I had this vision of a badass Jedi Master Luke in my head, and I'm a little sad we never truly got it. I now completely understand his disappointment with where Rian took his character.

3. Never really got into the whole Canto Bight sequence, though I loved the locale.

4. Guess we'll never know anything about Snoke.


Now, a couple things I loved:

1. Leia using the force to save herself - Holy ****, what a scene!

2. "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi" hologram - awesome callback. Not ashamed to admit I got teary-eyed when that happened.

3. ****ING YODA!!!!


I'm not ready to rank it yet. It really is true that this movie needs multiple viewings. I am planning on going again on Saturday and may be ready to do so then. (Definitely in the top half of the saga though, fairly sure about that.)
