    Just got back from the 10 AM showing. I AM PUMPED. The movie was better than I expected. Even this show was packed. Don't think it was quite sold out, though. There was even a bus load of kids taking a field trip there (fortunately high school). I don't recall taking cool trips like that when I was in school.

    Look again on the news (19-43) as they had a crew there, but Krash can probably tell us moe about that.

    DLP IS THE FUTURE. I'm now thoughouly convinced.

    I had a great time at the 12:01 show last night... Vince did a pretty good Wookie impersonation. IMPRESSIVE!!! ;)

    If it were a tuscan raider contest, i would have had that one in the bag! haha

    The DLP was unbelieveable crisp. Fantastic visuals.

    Yeah, the 12:01 showing was awesome!!!!! I loved watching the multiple viewings of TPM trailer. I think we were all getting a bit slap-happy sitting in the theater for two hours. I was sure Sprite was going to win :)

    I was happy to sell of my extra 3 tickets. Some of my friends could not make it. I guess I shouldn't have been shocked about people willing to take them. I'm sure I made their day. Felt really good about it.

    I did watch the 1:15pm DLP showing today. Can't get enough of AOTC in one day. I will definitely be seeing it again, and again, and again...

    Peace

    "I was sure Sprite was going to win "

    I know what u mean! In all the other theaters that I go to Sprit ALWAYS wins! That was sooo rigged!

    I'm going again tonight(thursday) to see it in a nonDLP theater to compare quality!

    That was SOOO funny how everyone was doing the Obi-wan scream at the same time he was for all of the episode I trialers, then I stood up and Screamed NOOO at the end of Episode II trailer then said...Oops wrong trailer!@ And everyone broke out laughing!!! ROFLMAO!!!

    Dang, sounds like you guys had fun... The theatre that I went to we saw the SE trailers, and the Clone War trailer. I really wish that I could see TPM trailers on the big screen, because I never have before.

    Goody, soon I will be seeing it in digital too... :)

    Dammit, I was in the theater, asking a bunch of people if they were from theforce.net. I thought I might have been able to meet one of you at the theater. I guess I was wrong.

    It was fun, anyway. I came in my full Sith robes, with my hand-crafted aluminum lightsaber hanging from my belt. I got a lot of attention, and was actually shown on the news several times, the most noticable being the early morning news on channel 3. I made the statement that the theme of Episode II is that things aren't always as they seem, and one of the anchors commented on it!

    I was the Jedi with blond hair, blue eyes, talking about how I made my costume out of a monk's robe, my belt cover was a leather glasses case and my tunic was tan OR scrubs, if you guys can try to identify me.

    OMG... That was sooooo cool. The sound was louder at VV than it was at Macedonia. Good crowd too. :)

    :D Krash and I were on Fox 8. We were both asked a question. Since Krash hadn't seen it yet, I think he was asked what he was expecting (correct me if I'm wrong Krash), and I was asked what I thought of the movie. :) We also had a lightsaber "fight" at the end. :)

    That was so cool. :)

    I want to see it again in digital! :)

    For the record, "The Mossman" asked me "are you a little old for this?" I told him "tonight, I'm a kid again...this is so much fun!" I wish I'd brought a lightsaber, but it was cool just being on TV at a SW movie.

    Reborn, we stood around in the lobby for some time before and during the live-shot...where were you? Unless you were outside, there was no way you could miss us!

    Yes, but my friend (his name is Scott) was the one carrying it. I had the saber with the four prongs extending from it.

    He asked me "what sort of themes are in this movie?"

    I told him "The theme is that things aren't always as they seem. Just because someone seems good doesn't mean that they are."

    I also stood in the front of the theater when Channel 5 asked the people in costume to come down. I was in my Sith robes with my hood up, house left, near the little girl in the Padme outfit.

    I sat in the mid-upper part of the theater, the wall being one seat away from me on my left.

    By the way, I saw some people in Scout Trooper armor. I believe my friend borrowed a cell phone from one of them. Were they any of you guys?

    Quote Krash "Reborn, we stood around in the lobby for some time before and during the live-shot...where were you? Unless you were outside, there was no way you could miss us! " unquote. Well let's see, first off I don't know what you or anyone else from this fanforce chapter looks like, and without a proper meeting area how in the hell am I supposed to find you? Had I been able to go to any of your meetings so I could recognize any of you, it would have made things easier, but considering I have a job and I always get shafted when a meeting rolls around, I don't know who you all look like and therefore I was not going to spend all night at the theater running around for such a miniscule meet and greet. Besides, the line was getting huge and I had to get my seat for the movie...and what a great movie it was...sorry I couldn't meet up but these things need to be more organized if we plan to meet up at events such as this...

    Hey JediKnightPasJoDacle,
    I was sitting next to WookieePoop (he does do that Tusken shout pretty well) -- I was the Jedi in the Wookiee-howling contest.
    Where and when is the meeting -- I'd like to make it up to one.

    Hey southbeach, I remember you -- you were in line just ahead of us.
    WookiePoop is da man for hookin' me up with the ticket -- that was a great time.

    Hate to say it, but I have perhaps the first negative review for the folks at Cinemark at Valley View.

    I was at the 7:45 sold-out digital showing tonight (friday), and again the projection was spectacular. The problem came, however, before the movie started to roll. Apparently, 15 or so individuals got in without proper tikets, as 15 people were left standing with all seats full. The theater claims never to oversell tickets, so some people must have either sneeked in or mistakenly got in the wrong line. The people who took the tickets hardly at all looked at the tickets to ensure each person was were they belonged. Also, their backs were facing the door; they could not have seen if someone was sneeking in. That being said, rather than recheaking everyone's stubs, they ensured there were no empty seats and escorted the remaining 15 or so out. Certainly, that should have been handeled differently. A ticket is supposed to gaurentee its holder a seat. Cinemark may have my buisness for Star Wars, but for nothing else, now.

    I find their lack of attention to the tickets disturbing.
