Well, somebody had to start this thread, right?
I know Mr. Hanke will be reviewing this movie at gunpoint. I also know it'll probably be the first $1 billion weekend for a movie--in one city alone! The $$$$ this movie will reap will set records forever. Now, if the movie is genuinely good will be another thing.
I am not a STAR WARS nut. Yes, I actually liked the first one. I later thought THE PHANTOM MENACE the worst time ever. I skipped the other prequels. I'm likely to see the new STAR WARS out of curiosity, and not because of any fandom issues.
So that's my defense for starting this thread.
