Just got from the theater, definitely a must buy purchase when it's released.  I was super satisfied at that movie, that's how you make a freaking Star Wars movie.

Who else saw it?

I saw a 1:15 AM showing on opening night. Holy hell that was so worth it. Worth the late hour. Worth the lost sleep. Worth the wait.

WORTH. EVERYTHING.

I was gobsmacked at how amazing it was.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I think this is one of the few instances where a movie actually lived up to all it's hype. Even surpassing it in some aspects.

On a side note, here is a cool snippet (especially since this is one of my favorite horror movies as well.):

I haven't seen the film yet but from the sounds of it it'll be worth the purchase once released on DVD. I can see it then as I have no interest in forking over a ton of cash to sit in a cold, dilapidated theater with a bunch of noisy people. And that's not counting the food you buy there either. Our theaters are not being properly maintained which is sad. It'll be more cost-effective when I buy it from retail, then I can watch it on my own time for free whenever I want :D

It all depends when you go bro. I went at a 3:10pm showing for IMAX 3D on Friday afternoon and only paid $10.00.

Just go on a "off" time.

I've paid well more for lesser movies than a movie of this calibre in the past unfortunately.

On a side note, one thing everyone was hyped to see this it was quiet as a mouse.

That's true. But in my hometown (Whitehorse, Yukon) we don't have that luxury. There are only two theaters here and both are in serious need of upgrading. They are expensive to go to (more-so then a decade ago) and that's just for the tickets. You want food? You need to pay for it separately and it's just as pricey for a single bag of popcorn. And the kind of crowds that hang around the place make it somewhat unappealing. They are places I would take kids to if I ever had any.

I still haven't come down off of cloud nine a few hours after getting back from that.  I agree, it was better than the hype.  I think it's actually, dare I say it, my favourite of the lot.  It hit so many right notes, and the effecs were done exactly how a Star Wars film should be done - practical effects where possible.  The acting was great, and I really loved the new characters, including Kylo Ren, who so lokelike he'd taken a smidge of inspiration from Darth Revan for his gear.  I loved that BB-8 was both a bit like and yet completely his own droid from R2D2. 
  The onyl annoyance I had was that yesterday on a forum I occassionally visit, some prat had decided to randomly post a major spoiler about the film, which turned out to be correct.  No warning or anything, grrrr.  Thankfully, it didn't ruin the moment itself.
I want my own lightsaber now.  One red, one purple.  And to run round at night for a short time in some nearby woods in my long, hooded velvet coat.  ;)  There's a fantastic bridge as well which is perfect for a lightsaber duel at night.  That film was just pure magic for me.  Loved it.

You're right on the money about that. Because it's so true unfortunately.

It's already receiving great reviews so I won't have to hold you to your word  ;)

Aaaaaaaa.....I really wanted to watch but I don't have the time due to Xmas responsibilities (and advancing work related stuff for January) and theaters are overpricing it.  :(
I'll just wait for dvd. At least pee breaks will not ruin my experience.

I saw it Thursday at 9pm at CineBistro with my girlfriend. Unfortunately I didn't really see it WITH her as the place has assigned seating and we got the last two tickets for that day on opposite sides of the theater. We did geek out over text during the movie, though.

I loved it. I rank it as my third favorite after Empire and Jedi and tied with New Hope.
I don't think they could have done a better job with it. The only complaints I could have are minor gripes not worth mentioning.

I'm going to go see it a second time this week, and a third time a week after that.
In the mean time, I already have cam recording I downloaded while I wait for the retail version to come out.

ROFL. I always think about this before I see a movie because the staff always talk me into the 0.75 more for a large refill soda and the moment I take 1 sip I ALWAYS have to pee halfway through the movie even though I make sure I go right before the previews.

And a tip for anyone that gets their movie experience ruined by adults and kids yapping or texting (with their bright @$$ light) during a movie, go immediately to staff (as for the manager) after you watch the movie and complain.

9 times out of 10 they will give you a free viewing to the movie again on their dime. In reality you will be able to see any movie you want. I done that for a couple of horror movies that got ruined for my by obviously under aged kids that snuck into the movie before it started. That's also when I decided to just only go to movies that I really want to see in the theater.

Sterling Archer - I am going to plead the 5th on this as I have "controversial" feelings on this and in the entertainment industry but I can honestly say if it wasn't for modders and hackers there would be alot of tech that we miss out on when companies make ideas better. But it's
(click to show/hide)
about the money.
