    I saw Star Wars when I was 11 in '77 with my friend Nina Norton and all of both of our brothers. Then I went home, painted my wall blue with tempura and drew a tie-fighter on it in black marker. My mother was appalled that it was going to flake off the wall so she took me to buy dark blue wall paint and some accent colors. Then let me paint my room dark blue with a crazy space battle all over my walls and ceiling with stars, planets, lights, and laser fire highlighted in glow in the dark tempura that lit up beautifully under a black light. In other words, I am a total geek level Star Wars fan but want to forget all about the second trilogy. Hoping JJ Abrams brings something fresh without losing sight of what was great about the first three or if you prefer 4,5,6. Happy Star Wars Day to you too, Susie!

    Absolutely! Though the special editions are less well-liked than the originals, they allowed me to see the movies on the big screen (I grew up in the 90s). I was a fan of the VHS versions before that, and will be a fan long after. Very much looking forward to the Force Awakens!

      Vanity Fair has a nice article about The Force Awakens with some great photos. http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/201 … ens-photos (watch out for their pop-up ads...lol)

      Looking forward to seeing it.

    To be honest, I'm probably the biggest Star Wars nerd I know! I grew up watching the movies on VCR over and over, and I'm actually a fan of the later prequels, too. Additionally, I've played several Star Wars video games (there are some pretty fun ones, Like Knights of the Old Republic) and read many Star Wars novels, which detail the adventures of Luke and company after the movies end. I can't get enough of the series (even some of my hubs are about it), and I hope Episode 7 turns out well. And May the Fourth be with you, too!

      Jeremy, may the force be with you. For entertainment value, Star Wars movies are some of the very best there is.  You sound like a great fan!

    Yes....but.  I think the original was best and the last was worst.  The movies deteriorated into fights and special effects.  I love special effects and action but they don't carry the film if overused.  Same with Spiderman and Superman.  I like to see the plot and characters emphasized with action and special effects supporting rather than leading.

      I do agree with you, Chuck. I like a good plot to a story with characters that are bigger than life. I love action and special effects, but there is such a thing as overkill.

      Good to know you are a Star Wars fan, too.  Thank you!
