    We don't need another origin movie. I hated the Andrew Garfield Spiderman movie, because they felt the need to show us that Peter Parker was bit by a radioactive spider. Well...DUH!

    "May the Fourth Be With You" was a tradition before Big Bang Theory immortalized it:

    One of the earliest known records of "May the 4th" used in popular culture is in 1979, as described here by author Alan Arnold while he was chronicling the making of The Empire Strikes Back for Lucasfilm:

    Friday, May 4

    "Margaret Thatcher has won the election and become Britain's first woman prime minister. To celebrate their victory her party took a half page of advertising space in the London Evening News. This message, referring to the day of victory, was 'May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations,' further proof of the extent to which Star Wars has influenced us all."

    I'm more Star Trek than Star Wars, but until the Next Generation came out, I was into Star Wars more heavily. I had a lot of the books and the action figures. ROTJ has already been out a few years by the time I was old enough to understand the movies, so I definitely missed the boat there.

    I love the Star Wars video games more than the Star Trek ones. The aliens in SW are much more randomized than Star Trek, who mostly featured humans with minor cosmetic changes. Hope the new movie is going to be good. The hype is going to be huge. If they can sit someone down to hold Abrams hand and show him what a logical plot should look like they should be ok. And keep Lucas away from any of the writing. Like a two mile quarantine for Mr "This is tense" please.

    That's where I saw it the first time too! During that opening scene, with that Star Destroyer that just keeps coming and coming and filling the screen, I just sank farther and farther down into the seat until I just about ended up on the floor. I wasn't aware I was doing it til I had to catch myself.

    Hopefully there will be a reveal from Episode 7 today, and not just the Star Wars Rebels trailer.

    My first memory ever is going to see Star Wars in Brea, CA with my Grandparents and my brother when I was 3.


    May the 4th be with you!

    "After years of changing hands, the massive theater was finally sold to Barnes & Noble, who razed it in 1994 to build a new store."

    They should bulldoze all the B&N stores any day now.
