Am I the only one who thought this was almost a complete rip off of the first star wars with a diff set of characters? Obi Wan = solo, Rey = Luke, ren=vader etc. The whole plot was almost the exact same. Completely underwhelmed
With our multiple viewings of this movie already it is on the verge of beating "Avatar" in the domestic box office record in North America. However, the obstacle of dethroning James Cameron's film is still a big hurdle for the world wide box office record.
Tuesday night will be my 10th screening of this movie. It'll be my 4th viewing in laser IMAX at Scotiabank. For an adult, I'm still a little obsessive about Star Wars. Now everyone can truly understand my old Tribe screen name.
I'm still crossing my fingers that after all the box office numbers are determined Scotiabank Theatre will give us an IMAX2D in 70mm film version to watch. Apparently, they still have that film projector in storage because that it what they used to show us "Interstellar" last year in 70mm IMAX.
Here's the Tiny List of Theaters Showing The Force Awakens in the Best Possible Formats
solo had to die to close the solo/obi wan loop.Saw it today and I agree..I felt like I've seen this movie done 5 times already. .nothing new..Darth Vader sounds like shit .I was beginning to yawn 3/4 of the way in..too bad Han died he brought the movie alive.
My Dances with Smurf's quote was only meant to point out that the story was far from something new.
But I agree, cinematically it was spectacular.
My biggest beef - I wish they gave Chewy a wife and that he had a kid. Why the hell hasn't this happened? No idea why Chewy is portrayed as an asexual being - he's the best character in the series. I'm sure he's like the Wilt Chamberlain of wookies back home...He should have a Chewy Jr. Huge missed opportunity there.
and for the 70mm imax you should read up about how that was only used in 1 sequence. .the rest of the movie was shot in digital imax format
i think boss hog's theory is the correct one, this is why carrie fisher ended up on drugs in real life. She knew the star wars saga would continue, and the truth about her and luke will now come out. I bet luke won't be found in the same spot, he's fucking off to another planet, he owes a shit load of $$$ in child support. The bill was in that lightsaber.
