I might end up watching it on dvd or on Netflix some time. I dunno, the original three Star Wars movies were a cultural event. When my kids were still at school I took them to see Star Wars as a single dad. The cinema was showing all three. We were on holidays and at the end of each one they were more than up for seeing the next one. So we did and ended up watching all three on the trot. Afterwards we got takeaway pizzas and went home. We all had a ball. The kids - all young mums now - maybe not so young anymore, the eldest is over 40 and the next one is turning 40 - still talk about it in those "remember when ..." conversations. But then Star wars went all corporate and turned into a franchise based on a business model. The later ones just aren't the same. We saw the one that came out around Christmas 2015 and to us it fell flat. If I went to see the latest one it would be with very low expectations.
Welcome to where the weird and the bizarre hang out. Into vaccine denial? You’ll find friends here. Think that scientific evidence is a conspiracy? Are you never happier than when you’re bashing blackfellas? Make yourself right at home. This is Fruitcake Central.
Got around to watching it last night. Couldn't really get into it. I don't think it was well cast at all. Seeing Vader again was good and how The Rebellion got the info for how to destroy the death star but that's about it. I won't watch it again.
