SithLady:  

So did you love it?!?

We were some of the few today who didn’t wear some sort of Star Wars costume. But I didn’t care. We saw others with greying hair nodding knowingly at the younger crowd in their costumes, because we knew our peers were also waltzing down memory lane to our standing in line in 1977 and ’80 and ’83 with similar excitement.

I love the original trilogy and am a huge fan.  The newer trilogy has its moments but is mostly bad.  I’m both excited and ambivalent about the new ones, but I’m seeing it tomorrow and will give it a chance!

I’m 32, lots of my peers are into it, my dad is a sci-fi nerd, and I’m completely in the dark.

I’m sure I’ve seen pieces of a few episodes, but never start-to-finish. Not a one.

I have, on the other hand, seen Spaceballs. More than once.

I’m 40, so I grew up with the original movies. Haven’t been able to watch the prequels without falling asleep though. That or throwing things at the screen whenever Hayden Christensen attempts to act.

To be honest, I don’t really get the hype. My thoughts are summed up by this (apologies for swearing and Return of the Jedi spoilers):

I loved the originals as a kid, my dad was a big fan. He grudgingly (because he hated Star Trek and sci fi in general) saw Episode IV in theatres 54 weeks after it opened because his friends made him. He loved it. 

metbymoonlight:  same feelings here about the prequel trilogy. Darling Husband and I are going to a matinee next week sometime to try to avoid the insanity.

Until this year I hadnt seen any of the movies. But my Fiance suggested since the new one was coming out I might like to watch them. I am an only child and my parents werent into it so i was just never exposed to it. Though I was familiar with the merchandise etc with some of the later movies as I worked in a toy store.

I enjoyed the movies but I feel like I could never be a true fan because I didn’t grow up with it.

I saw the original on one of the few rounded screens in America at the time (Indian Hills movie theater). It was awe striking for a 7 year old. I’ll never forget the roaring cheer the crowd made when Chewbacca made that last growl, it didn’t end until after the credits finished. It was exactly what the country needed psychologically at the time. I still love the series, can’t help it, it’s nostalgia.

I’ve never seen any of the movies, know nothing about it. Don’t care at all. Yet, somehow my nerd boyfriend started dating non-nerd me and I got roped into going to a showing tomorrow with him and our nerd couple friends. Of course they’re all so excited we’re lining up for a 7 o’clock showing at 5. Kill me. 

But, on the bright side, I get to eat Ghenghis Grill beforehand.

I finally saw them this year, in part for work and in part for love of my fanboy Fiance. Ehhhh… I’ll take me some Star Trek over Star Wars any day.

I’m going tomorrow with Fiance, wish me godspeed.

I know the ride at Disnyland. Other than that… Meh. Really didnt care about them.

I was offered a job on movies 2 and three, the ones from 1999 and 2001 (give or take), but in hindsight it wasn’t a real offer. Some guy was very loosely acquainted with the production company and was looking to score. It didn’t work, just made me a bit jaded to the franchise

marylen:  I was made to watch them years ago by Darling Husband. All six in the correct order, thankfully not back to back! I love sci-fi but Star Wars just didn’t do it for me, I found it all very boring and too busy. I didn’t really care for any of the characters but it at least had Harrison Ford…

I watched the latest one last night and I actually enjoyed it. They’ve done a good job of cutting out the superfluous nonsense but still gave the fans their fill of references. I still hate Leia.
