My older cousin saw the trailer yesterday and tears came out of his eyes LOL! He's been a Stars Wars fan ever since episode 3 which he saw in theaters the very first day, and all the other ones as well. Seeing him like that makes me think how much movies can affect people. Kind of like a little "getaway" from reality you know? I don't know, just an observation. ::)

You are right Gimpy. I guess everyone has to have a hobby, some enjoy it on a casual basis, other people are too dedicated.  ;)

I aint a big Star Wars fan but the original first movie was the best in my opinion.

Harrison ford as Han Solo seemed to be the only character to add the human element to the film and was the least wooden.
????????
dude empire was the best movie, the first was a fairy tale and the third was a muppet show

  Haha  ;D  "Empire" is my favorite of all the Star Wars flicks and one of my favorite sci-fi movies of all time.

  The biggest problem I have with the newer Star Wars movies is the Ewok-like kiddie factor was upped with dumbasses like Jar Jar and the unfunny robot slapstick.  Still, and I know that I'm in the minority here, I thought they were ok.  I actually enjoyed the ending of the last one, despite it being hugely cheesy...Again, minority I know...

Don't worry, Conan, I agree with you (I bet that makes your day, doesn't it? ;)), I've enjoyed the new Star Wars movies.

I'm not sure which I'd pick out of the originals as my favorite. All three are really good.

absolutely there were ok, you're dead right there, the problem was we were promised and we expected much more, but you're right about them neing ok especially the second, i did like the scene where anakin went psycho after his ma died, but they were forgettable

Besides the jar jar factor i think that one of the main reasons the two new movies fell so short with a lot of old fans is because they´ve simply grown up, possibly jaded with big special effects movies. You´re simply not awed the same way anymore by big battlecruisers. So instead one looks for storyline, and to my meaning filling three movies out centralizing about the fall of anakin is simply too much time. A more complex plot could have saved episode 1 and 2 (or a scoundrel  ;) ) I hope lucas got the best saved for last, it might even help on the trilogy as a whole, though i sadly doubt it.

Only another 2 weeks before it's released.
I'm almost as excited as if I was waiting for a new Clint Eastwood film.I've placed myself on a ban on looking at anything to do with the film that comes up in the paper or on the news.I want to go into the theater without any expectations.

i'm more excited about it than any other film, star wars was the movie event of my childhood, it's something i grew up with i'm mmad about it. it's funny i'm almost hysterically excited about this, i wouldn't be like that about an eastwood movie, i'd be more keenly interested i guess it's cause his movies work on such higher levels than popcorn special effects extravaganzas

I too must admit that my relaxed approach/pretence and view on the movie is slowly dissolving in hope of one final grand adventure. I truly hope/dream/plead that this movie will be the "The empire strikes back" movie for the first trilogy.  ;)

This is getting difficult.Everyday there's something about it in the paper.I quickly turn the page resisting the urge to read the article.After today I may stop looking and posting in this thread until I see the film on Thursday week. ;D

I saw the previews on TV for the first time yesterday. Looks pretty good. I kinda like the fact it's rated PG-13. Could mean it's going to be darker and more violent.
