Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

Are there any geeks out there that stood in line to see Star Wars this morning at 12:01?

Are any of you planning to see the film? Curious minds want to know how many geeks their are on the org.

Pete has already seen it (because he was an extra) and gave me a bootleg copy....

Re: Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

yes I saw it but no I didn't stand in line (a friend bought a bunch of tickets online the other day). I'll start off by saying I wanted to punch so many people in that theatre before the movie started. The movie was really good though except jarjar didn't die. he didn't speak though and was only seen in a couple small scenes.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

I'll see it eventually, but there's no way I'll stand in any line for it. Especially some line with a bunch of losers wearing costumes.
The movie won't be any different in a few weeks, other than the fact I will actually be able to enjoy it without some 30 year old dateless high school reject thinking he's part of the movie and ruining it for everyone else.

Re: Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

I'm definitely going to see it....but I won't wait in line. I saw the Phantom Menace when it opened at 12:00, but being at a steady job now, I figured I could wait

Re: Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

I saw it at 12:01. There sure are some crazy folks their. I just went as myself. Not even a T-shirt. Georgee doesn't need my money. Awesome movie though. Way better than 1 and 2. But, the scenes between padame and skywalker were still very awkward.

I'll go see it again on Saturday probably. Awesome fight scenes man. I don't want to ruin it, but can you say 4 light sabers?

Re: Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

I went to the 12:01 showing, too. A group of us had seen the last two at midnight:01 on the premiere date so we had to see this one at midnight:01, too.

I enjoyed the movie. It was good, but not great.

Re: Anybody go see Star Wars at 12:01

well I saw it on 5/19/05 @ 2pm. It was good. Definitely better than the 1st 2 combined. The acting is still super wooden, and illicted lots of snickers whenever Christian tried to speak. Still, the CG is top notch, and the movie really found its legs.

Not a great movie, but definitely enjoyable. I'm looking forward to the Narnia movie tho.

"Sith" Fans Maimed in Lightsaber Mishap By Charlie Amter

The Force--let alone common sense--was definitely not with them.

Two British Star Wars fans sustained critical injuries after constructing their own lightsabers from fluorescent light tubes filled with liquid fuel.

According to British media reports, a 20-year-old man and his 17-year-old female friend were filming a mock duel in homage to Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith, the latest chapter of George Lucas' record-breaking franchise.


The duo were reportedly emulating one of Sith's key battles, a lightsaber clash between Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker.


The two Brits suffered severe burns when their homemade sabers exploded. The two had been videotaping their clash. They have been hospitalized at Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire since the accident Sunday. TRIMMED

I'll go see it once the crowds die down. I hate theatres, mostly because I hate people.

And then there's this asshole...
