    I was 6 years old when the original came out in 1977 and saw it.

    But i see all these people sitting out for 10 days in Hollywood wearing their costumes and i'm like, what the fuck?


    Someone could've presented me with the chance to have gone to the Hollywood premiere
    with all the stars and I still would have passed on it.

    Who's with me?

    Nope. Too much hype. I didn't watch Avatar for the same reason.

    I'm going to see it but it might be next week or the week another, Just not a Sci Fi geek. So no the hype doesn't move me at all.

    But a really good reviewed movie is a rare thing these days. And there is like 3-4 movies out right now that are over 90% on rotten tomatoes and Star Wars is one of them.

    I seriously don't give a fuck about Star Wars per se but, I may go see this one in the theater since it seems like a movie I SHOULD experience in a theater.

    I'll go on a Sunday morning when I'm the only one in the place.

    As for the nutty fans, I see them sitting out in the cold for days and days and it makes me sad for humanity.

    There were two half-wits that got married here in Hollywood yesterday in front of the theater by a guy in an Obi-Wan Kenobi costume (I think), and it was profoundly sad.

    I saw that this morning and was going to bring that up.

    No way that marriage lasts 5 years.

    Dumb shits.

    I want to see it, I don't get wrapped up in all the hype either, I'll wait til January and probably try and catch it in imax, if I read any spoilers before then it wont kill me.

    I'm with you. when a movie has this much pre hype you know it's shit and everyone is gonna lie and say how good it was just to fit in with the mindset. Pass.

    Not a a sci fi guy, so "no" also. I'll take gritty murder and mayhem with lots of blood and double crosses having a healthy dollop of revenge mixed in every time.

    I could care less. I was a kid when I saw the first Star Wars in 1977, and I was unimpressed. I've remained unimpressed ever since.

    So I'm with you.

    I wonder if JJ Abrams slipped Howard a copy to add to his vast laserdisc collection from the early 90's
