One thing, though: At some point I want to rewatch the entire series thoroughly. Should I watch them from I to VII, I-III and IV-VII, skip III or a different order?


5 - 2 - 6 - 1 - 3 - 4. Or do every 6! possibilities and share the best :P

Comparing Star Wars and Star Treks is like comparing Pokemon to Digimon(take your pick)...

Would it be necessary to view all other movies to be able to follow this one? Star wars seems interesting, but I haven't watched any movie of it yet, and since the first movies are quite old iirc, it may be hard to get into.

You haven't seen any star wars movies O.O

You have to see them before you see VII ;)

You will still enjoy this movie even if you didn't watch the others I think. It's just better to watch them all I think to know more about each characters, plus all of them are enjoyable IMHO, especially the old ones.

I personally watched I and II entirely, but the last time I watched the old ones was when I was kid so I forgot some stuff, and back then I was exposed to Star Trek more than Star Wars on TV. I recorded the old ones on VHS in 2002 but I mostly skimmed through them and I overwrote part of them due to running out of tape back then.

Also, if you have the chance, you should watch the old movies in their original unaltered version. Definitively a different experience and some people actually prefer those (aside from the crappy sound lol)

From what I could see, Star Trek is more exploration-oriented than Star Wars in general. Even the games are just exploration in general. Overall, not the same style anyway. They just can't be compared.

Just watched ep 3 tonight (stupid Anakin <_<)

DJ Omnimaga

So I checked online and learned that my local theater will show the movie one day ahead of the official release date, so I'll be able to watch it thursday instead of friday. w00t!

The $5 thursdays promotion will not apply for this movie, though.

I'm going to the midnight showing... the night before my biology final. It's gonna be awesome :)

DJ Omnimaga

There's no midnight showings in my city D:. I guess it's only in big cities like New York and Montreal. The latest showtimes for this movie and most other movies are 10 PM.

DJ Omnimaga

Ok so I'm going to the 7 PM showtime. I bought my ticket a few hours in advance because I was worried it would be sold out. Apparently the movie is very good because some people saw it already and enjoyed it.

So I just came back from the movie theater and the movie is awesome. It seems closer in style to the old trilogy than the prequel trilogy did. Now I want to do a marathon, though :P

Been watching all the movies for the past week, I think I can go Sunday.

DJ Omnimaga

In any case, it seems that the consensus so far in general is that it's better than the prequel trilogy and it brings back the old style overall, while incorporating modern special effects among traditional effects.
