    I've been regularly checking this week's forecast. The weather on premiere night better be chilly (or else)!

    Last year we had a freak snowstorm here in Portland. We made it to Rogue One just fine, but it was dicey at points. Looks like there's no precipitation on the horizon for Thursday OR Friday. Yeah!

    Starting my marathon tomorrow.
    I haven't seen any of the SW movies, except for Rogue One, for almost a year, and I haven't done a full marathon since before TFA came out.

    The hype is on! :D

    I can't do the marathon thing anymore, but one (or two) movies a week isn't too bad of a time investment. I just made sure to schedule it in my calendar. And I just realized that I've seen Rogue One more times than any other Star Wars film this year (must've been pretty good? :p )

    With 4 days left, and 8 films to watch, it is still feasible for a marathon, if one still haven't done so.

    Another option is an R1/OT/TFA mini-marathon.

    The shortest option being just rewatching TFA again.

    On TNT the saga is being shown all week. Even through all of next weekend. You have plenty of time to watch it. Just do two movies a day.

    First part of my marathon was great. It's the first time I've worked the The Clone Wars movie into a marathon actually - it works really well following Attack of the Clones. The TCW movie obviously doesn't click as well with Revenge of the Sith, though, but oh well.

    Tonight I'm seeing Revenge of the Sith, Rogue One and A New Hope. Can't wait! :)

    I saw a character poster of Leia at a bus stop outside my job today. It really made me realize how close the film is now. [face_hypnotized]
    On my way to lunch I also saw a Luke poster, and some sort of theatrical poster I haven't seen before.

    Watched the OT on TNT throughout the weekend. I think I'm going to wait until Wednesday night to watch TFA.

    I finished the marathon last week. Watched it with my girlfriend who didn't see all the movies before.

    We chose the machete order, but a little tweaked:

    RO
    ANH
    TESB
    AOTC
    ROTS
    ROTJ
    TFA

    She absolutely loved it and Return of the Jedi is her favorite so far. Seeing the movies with someone who isn't spoiled ("I'm your father" was something she hadn't seen before for example) was a real joy. The Hayden Christensen force ghost actually made her emotional and that in itself made me appreciate the prequels again (we, or I should say I, skipped TPM in this marathon, but I'm sure we'll watch it some day).

    So now we are ready for TLJ. The reactions so far are extremely positive and it has only enhanced my excitement and impatience even further. December 16th will be the day!

    JP_Frost, why skipping TPM??:confused:

    I'm now on ANH. I have the next three days off work (some residual vacation to use up) so this should work out perfectly! Planning to finish TFA Thursday evening, then seeing TLJ on Sunday.

    In reference to the posts above, I am actually hoping we DON'T have cold weather/snow. I hate having to bring winter coats and whatnot into the theater, and have to put them on the disgusting theater floor (since the seats next to me will likely be taken up) where all sorts of mysterious and sickening dregs of people's food and whatnot lurk for months...Also-I've said it before, but when I went to see Rogue One, I drove to see it in a blizzard, and low 20's weather-having to scrape several inches of snow off my car in the dark after the movie. No thanks.

    The forecast is looking great for the coming week; but as anyone who lives here in Colorado knows: the weather forecast means NOTHING more than 48 hours out!! :p

    This is so rare these days, even people who never watched ESB are spoiled because of so many pop culture references.

    Forgot about my playlist. We've got a half hour drive, so I'm going for:

    Opening Crawl Fanfare
    Duel of the Fates
    Imperial March
    Jedi Steps and TFA credits

    That's a bit of each trilogy. Might slide a bit of Rogue One in there too.

    Ricardo Funes,

    Totes. I've always wanted to introduce SW properly to my son. But even now-being 4 years old, he already knows Anakin turns into Darth Vader and Luke is his son!!!

    She was never really into star wars and born in a country where those cultural references were/are not as abundant. She guessed it though that Vader was Luke's father. But it was definitely good to see experience that moment with her.

    In exactly 24 hours, I'll be in the theater, irritated by Fanta and IKEA commercials. And also excited about some movie I'm going to see, I suppose.

    I'm just ready to read a spoiler free review. 58 hours for those of us on the Eastern Seaboard of the US. I shake my fist at you in jealousy.

    For me, the build up is worse than it was for TFA. Especially since I know there are spoilers available and I'm purposefully avoiding them.

    We have to endure just one more day. We already survived spoilers for 2 years, now we only have to resist temptation for a single day.

    Think about this: we are the few who are going to experience it the way it was meant by the director to be experienced.

    I have found that going unspoiled to the movie always makes me like it better. I am so glad I did not spoil TFA or R1, the tension and drama of the key moments is not lost, as you are not sure what is going to happen.

    Same here. It will be a new experience, considering by this point we knew just about everything major that was going to happen in TFA (and it diminished it a bit for me).

    I couldn't stop myself from reading all about it so at least it was my own fault. I don't know how I would have reacted in your situation...that sucks!
