I feel bad...... i have 4 cinema's in a 20 mile radius, one of them is a IMAX 3D,

i watched star wars last night, in 3D IMAX

not to spoil anything for you but.........

a little bit of wee came out

Similar here. At least 6 large cinemas, one is IMAx, all do 3D, all within 15 miles of where I live and I live in a small town....so I saw Star Wars in 3D, even recognised the outdoor scenery ;-)

Now when it came to Leia....... oops spoilers.

I actually enjoyed it even though they did hit all the previous notes.


I don't even know what to say anymore about a movie industry that pumps out sequel after sequel of the same movie. Rocky and Saw 17 anyone?

I have even less faith in a movie audience that can't wait to see the next one.

Lewis Black has a routine about candy corn that sort of catches the idea.

Give me a shout when they give you free beers with the nacho's.

We can meet up and watch every movie ever made(excluding chick flicks)

If they have it in 3D you can count me in.

Hopefully it is a double feature with Yentl.

After a while, you realize there are only so many basic plots in the world, and the question is how creatively and entertaining can this or that author or movie maker take you over familiar territory.

At its root, Star Wars is really just a giant dysfunctional family tale.

You havent missed much, I thought it was incredibly boring, after the first ten minutes it was all so predictable.

You are correct, apparently there are only 7 movie plots:


  • Overcoming the monster
  • Rags to riches
  • The quest
  • Voyage and return
  • Comedy
  • Tragedy
  • Rebirth


Every film ever made will fall under one of these catagories

That deserves it's own thread.

If you dare to author it it would be an interesting read.

I feel your pain. I travelled to the next town to see it. It was well worth the trip.

Consider yourself fortunate to have saved your time and money! Wait for it to come out on DVD.

Which begs the question do these same plots sell so well because we have been conditioned to them or because they click with our inner understanding of the way things should be?

Is it programming or innate?

It was great, but it wasn't the same feeling as the first one. I think it's just me. I've changed and it's just not the same. It like the saying, you can never go home again. When you leave your childhood home and go live as an adult, your childhood home is never the same again. Your parents aren't like your parents were before you left. I couldn't get over how old the cast had become. I couldn't get over how old I've become.

I would argue that they have incredible potential to unify us as a species. After all, those plots and how they play out in our tales really speak to the human condition. That is why a person can read/hear/view a tale from China (or any other country/culture) and still have it speak to them on a visceral level even despite the differences. In the end, our lives and experiences are incredibly similar for all that we choose to filter them through different elaborate constructs called society.

My first experience opening night with the first star wars movie was exquisite. I look back now and think its a stupid movie.


I saw the original in the theater with my best friend back in '77 or whenever it was. I always did think it was a dumb movie, hated it that night and wouldn't watch this new one if I could sit home and watch for free. But my friend was just the opposite, thought it was exquisite like you. Funny isn't it?
