OK, so I am number 10 in line for Star Wars Episode III in a local theater(literally, my ticket has a big "10" on it. . I just bought the ticket. I saw ALL of the movies in the theater (I was 4 when Ep IV came out) and wish to continue the tradition. I know I'm going on the first day and I could have gone later, but my brother and I hae been competing about who sees movies first.... I win this time.

I was in line and saw a creature that I thought only existed in cruel jokes. An older balding man who was breathing heavily through his mouth with thick glasses and a star wars t-shirt (no lie). I could be speculating, but I think he lives with his Mom. I had a nightmare thought run through my head. Am I a geek? Not the respected PC geek, but the mom's basement downloading pictures of whatever WB spawned teen angst haven't had a date since Prom (and she was my cousin :thumbsup:) sort of geek?

Please someone else tell me you're going to see Episode III tonight? PLEASE!?!?!

Geek for sure!
Was your cousin at least hot? j/k :thumbsup:

I'm not even going to see it. Loved the first 3 but haven't liked one bit the last 2 so i'm not going to see the last one.

Yup, your a geek. And someday you'll look like the "creature that I thought only existed in cruel jokes. An older balding man who was breathing heavily through his mouth with thick glasses and a star wars t-shirt (no lie)". And live in your Mom's basement.

:thumbsup:

I'll wait til it comes out on TV. I already look like that. :flowers:

I'm just being a dork ignore me!

I only liked the orginal 3. I'll go to see this new one (even tho I haven't seen the recent 2), in about a few weeks to let the crowds thin out too. I think this may even beat the "Matrix Reloaded," world record for the largest turn-out.

OK I guess someone has to stick up for you and be on your side.

You were in line the first day of release.

Because of a competion with your brother.

Completly sane and normal behavior for two siblings. Especially brothers. Believe me I know. I have 3.

Are you elder?

Balding?

Do you breathe heavily through your mouth?

Are you a wearer of thick glasses?

And lastly, do you live in your Mothers basement?

If you have answered no to these. Then there is hope for you yet. :flowers:

I'd even let you slide on the t-shirt thing. That by itself, wouldn't be that big of a deal. :trumpet:

I may watch the movie. But as always I will wait for it to come out on cable. My home has a smoking section. And the snacks are much cheaper. P.J.'s allowed. A nice comfy sofa. Plus, I can pause and rewind. Great for bathroom breaks. :inlove:

Actually, I'm the middle child, I shave my head (voluntarily bald), and moved out of my parents house when I was 22. I think the only t-shirt I have that has any images on it is a Dogpile.com shirt I got for free from doing a survey for them a while ago. My wife told me I'm nuts, but I'm hoping Lucas redeems himself in part 3. i'll let y'all know tomorrow.

If you would have asked me a few months ago I would have said the same thing. I usually don't rush out on a big movie (except Meet the Fockers, now that was pure genius :flowers: ) just to see it. I usually try to forget about it, and just wait for it to come out on VHS/DVD or even on the cable (Time-Warner; onDemand thing).

2:45 a.m. going to bed with the satisfaction that Lucas (in my eyes) has redeemed himself. Goodnight all. :thumbsup:

As for Star Wars. Me and mine love it. When it came out I never saw it. I never saw Star Wars Trilogy until my eldest son got the movies and I really loved them. I liked Episode I... that was good. Episode II was a snore. I took a nap. I am hoping Episode III will keep me awake and interested.

I am going to make darn sure that I have no basement for my son to live in. hehehe

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

(Sung to the tune of Do-Re-Mi. For Star Wars fans only.)

Lando, a man, a scoundrel man. Ray, a beam shot from a gun. Shmi, a slave who had a son

Fa, a galaxy fa, fa away. Solo, a smuggler running spice. Leia, a princess who looks nice.


Tie, a fighter that shoots twice. That will bring us back to ...
