Well it’s almost here. Are you excited? Angry? Ready for it to be over?

Metacritic isn’t always a good indicator if a film is good or not, but it’s not looking for right now at a 54. Expect that to go down. Oof.

    It’s time for Star Wars to take a good long break from movies.

    Well I am going to go and see it because it is Star Wars, but I have low expectations. I wish they'd just stop now.

    I have my ticket. I saw that it's not getting great reviews.

    That is my thoughts as well. Or at least take a break and not to force out weak movies to make a buck.

    I’m going to see it. I have been disappointed with all the Star Wars Movies after the original 3, but I still keep watching them so I suppose I’ll just keep being part of the problem. I expect this one will be no better or worse than the last one.

    I'll see it eventually, but don't have tickets to it yet. Husband is going on Monday.

    I really liked Force Awakens and Rogue One. Honestly, I didn't hate The Last Jedi nearly as much as most people seemed to have hated it. But, I've only been a recent fan (hadn't seen the original 3 until after high school) and not since childhood like a lot of folks, so my opinion might not be valued too highly, hah.

    I actually liked Rogue One a lot and thought it was the best of the newer Star Wars.

    I agree with this. It's a great movie

    Empire is the best one. Fight me.

    I'll most likely go at some point...I'm a Star Wars geek, so I can't help myself but I'll keep my expectations low.

    It's funny though...I watched New Hope and Empire over Thanksgiving with my 16 yo nephew and 14 yo niece. They had never seen them but like the newer ones. I was like, "oh...you have to see them." They both looked at me the entire time like, "really...you think this is good?"

    I'm pretty sure I don't have a choice; I have to go see it as it is written in my marital vows or something. However, I was over Star Wars about 40 yrs ago.

    They need to stop with the trilogy movies. Some of the spin off stuff is great. Rogue One, Mandalorian etc...

    I liked Rogue One the most (aside for the original 3), and I think Rogue One was probably the easiest to understand for the people who don’t know much about the other Star Wars stuff.
    I agree with anyone who thinks The Empire Strikes Back was the best of all of them.

    Will see it with my old high school bud when he comes to town for Christmas. Was just weeks old when my parents took me to "see" Episode 4 (then known only as "Star Wars"...the addition of "New Hope" came many years later). I have since seen every single SW movie in-theater, except Solo. (Which in retrospect I regret, as I had very low expectations for the movie but really enjoyed when I saw it on home DVD.)

    Empire...Return...Rogue One... those are my top three, the order of preference will vary on any given day.

    I still remember the hoopla when Episode 1 came out while I was in college, the first Star Wars movie in over fifteen years. A buddy of mine volunteered to sit in line for over A WEEK to get tickets (and he wasn't the first in line)...I attended his classes and took notes for him, brought him meals if he got me opening night tickets as well. The night came and it was a total carnival atmosphere, with 95% of people wearing some Star Wars article of clothing, more than half in actual costume. When the lights lowered the theater owner skipped the previews and went straight to the opening music, causing the entire place to erupt in standing ovation and cheers. (I don't care that the movie failed miserably to meet expectations, the memory of that night remains a high point in my mind.)
