  1. I’m pretty much resigned to having it spoiled. I should remember to turn off General Chat, though.

    Though it would be pretty funny if Bioware started handing out bans and suspensions for people giving spoilers in General Chat.

  2. I have no idea when I’ll get around to seeing it. Certainly not until after Christmas, perhaps not until New Years’. I have to confess that I never bothered to see Episodes II and III. I’m just old enough to have seen A New Hope in its original run in the theaters, and it is hands down my favorite movie of all time. I loved The Empire Strikes Back, and am still somewhat conflicted over Return of the Jedi.

    Episode I was such a cinematic mess to me, that I just couldnt be bothered to set aside the time for II and III. From what little I’ve seen of those two movies on cable tv over the years, I’ve seen nothing to make me re-consider, and I’m NOT one of those trolls who insist that the prequels are abominations and anyone who says otherwise should be burnt at the stake. So, I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to enjoy The Force Awakens for what it is, I’m definitely going to give it a shot. It doesnt have to be the greatest Star Wars movie ever. It just has to entertain me. I *think* it will.

    I’m not too terribly concerned about being exposed to spoilers. It is not going to ruin the movie for me if I have an idea of what happens ahead of time. The plot line is either going to work, or it is not. It will either hang together or it will collapse from its own weight.

    Anyway, I wish all success to J.J. Abrams and crew, may they entertain us for many years to come.

  3. I won’t be seeing it this week either. Episode I disappointment still haunts me, coupled with people talking and screaming kids…. I’d just rather see it after it’s old, in a mostly empty theater where I can get my pick of the seats and no one’s screaming kid or mobile phone will be distracting. 🙁

  4. I saw the movie and thought it was okay. I don’t much care for the prequels (pretty much hate them actually) but I did feel like the prequels built a far more interesting world for the EU to play around in (Clone Wars TV series anyone?). So far the world The Force Awakens built doesn’t interest me much, even if the movie itself was lightyears ahead of the prequels.

  5. Same for me. RL stuff going on; I haven’t even bothered to get tickets. I’m not reading any blog reviews, even if they say “no spoilers”. The reactions of people you read a lot of can even spoil you in a way (if you know them a bit and have the feeling you may react the same way, for instance).
