Thumbs Up May the Force be with you

My daughter reserved seats (just her and me) at one of those nice theaters with reclining seats. Yes reserved seats like at a baseball game. Very good movie, however I think there may a sequel to this one. We went Wednesday night at 9:30pm. On Friday the 18th we started watching the Star Wars movies from Episode I. We would be Wife, daughter and myself. Episodes I and II were on DVD, the rest were on VHS. The VHS were the original movies that were shown in the theaters, not the edited new release ones. So as of Dec 23 we had only got to episode IV. We finished up Saturday night, and on Sunday the wife and I went to see it. (Yes the second time for me) The wife was like "so what was all of the hipe about? I was not impressed with the movie."
Me I loved the movie! Stood in line at a theater in Denver when I was in tech school (USAF) to see the first one.

Spoiler alert!

Were you at Lowry? I was at Lowry in 1984, although I was in the "Rocky Mountain Navy".

Swmbo and myself went to see it last night. It was a good movie and has some nice surprises. What I want to know is: How in the he*ll does a little bitty red head swmbo manage to eat a large bag of popcorn with butter? I mean the whole thing in about 30 minutes. I reached over after awhile to get a handful and it was at the bottom of the bag. Just Wow!

DUDE! I was there the exact same time frame. 32232B Avionic Sensor Systems. Lackland 16DEC76 3706 BMTS

Ever see this ride at Lowery?



Looking for the pic that I cropped that from, but it is dated JUL77 so it was taken on the base.

One more thing I had a blue and white rope.

Deb and I saw it today. All they did was re-create the 1977 movie with modern cinematic equipment. The acting was better and the mix of live action and CGI was OK, but it was the same story. Not worth the hype nor my time. This just might have turned me off of any future movies at the theater. I'm tired of sitting next to people that bathe in perfume, slurp their drinks, crunch food and crackle wrappers. Not to mention the idiots that bring crying babies to the movie. PPV or network from my own recliner will be much more enjoyable.

Yep, I've gotten old and crabby.

They actually did a lot to MINIMIZE the CGI in this movie. Less computer animation and more people in costumes, models, etc. to be more like the originals.

That's why it looks waaaaay better than episodes 1-3.


It's been a while since I saw a movie in theater, but they do seem to be making the "experience" much nicer than in the past. MUCH better seats that are more comfortable, recline, and more room between people. Upgrades in picture and sound..... and my local theater has BEER and WINE!

I'm still trying to understand why it is "headline" news much a movie has made in ticket sales. I don't see where this helps impact my life
