    Just wait till Sunday and we can DM. There are plenty of people in here giving it high praise, so don’t worry about my take.

    I wouldn't go quite that far, but I certainly agree that there were important elements either missing or not optimally executed. It was almost as though it all ran out of steam before it could rise to something truly spectacular and transcend rapid-paced eye candy. I wanted a genuine ending, and I don't believe I got one.

    I'm so glad I was spoiler-free! I wasn't held down by rumors and plot leaks, I just watched the movie and enjoyed it. I saw it again tonite after reading the Visual Dictionary yesterday, and it was wonderful to watch again. I'm gonna see it again!

    I agree, I felt the ending was like, an edited version of what they really wanted it to be. If they had taken a bit more time with it, it would have been perfect. Still it was fitting though.

    There were a just a few moments where I was left with a kind of...."come on..." (meaning certain moments that kind of stretched believability), and others where I was kind of " :confused:", but ultimately I thought it was awesome, and many fantastic and memorable things about it!

    If I had to describe TROS in one single word, it would be:

    "EPIC."

    And I truly believe my enjoyment of it will likely increase, if I see it again! I would place this as my #3 in the whole saga, under ROTS and ESB.

    Gonna be quiet until 2022 unfortunately. Wish this side of the forum had more posters. The spoilers allowed section is filled with a lot of nastiness.

    I'm just glad we had The Mandalorian, that seemed to unite us.

    All the speculation options have been effectively murdered. B&W dropping out, Rian putting dampers on any mention, etc. And chatting about the High Republic with almost no extra info has run it's course.

    When Project Luminous is unveiled, maybe it will just be about books and comics but maybe it will be something wider. Maybe it will allow us to project huge conclusions from minimal information for a while again.

    I've seen TROS 4x now. Might see it one more time before it leaves theaters, will have to see how things pan out.

    I've seen it ten times. I think I'm going to try at least one more time before it leaves theaters. If it stays in theaters through next weekend though I might try for a nice round twelve. :p

    Saw it again tonight. Will check it again next weekend maybe if it’s still available. It’s no longer showing at my preferred theater. Can’t decide if I want to rank it at 8th or 9th among the films. It’s truly a mixed bag for me. I do love watching Star Wars on the big screen though, and have loved this cast!

    I have a 2 dollar google movies rental coming to me so I am thinking I'll use it for a TROS digital rental before the blu ray comes out for my 7th viewing. (trying to watch it at least once a month all 2020!)

    I am proud to say, I was spoiler free for the entire trilogy, as well as RO, and Solo. It was hard. It was challenging, but I'm happy I did. I think it makes it much more enjoyable when you have no preconceived ideas of what to expect in the movie.

    Spoiler free FTW!
    I was fairly spoiler free for TFA (I saw the first teaser, knew the names of Rey, Finn, Kylo & Poe and was aware of terms like First Order Stormtrooper and Resistance), super spoiler free for RO (I saw the first few seconds of the first teaser) and very spoiler free for TLJ and Solo (I saw the first teaser for both). I probably got as much enjoyment out of those movies as I could, all things considered.

    When it was leak time for TROS, however, I had lost all interest in new Star Wars content, so I decided to spoil myself rotten for the heck of it, just to see what it's like to know everything that's gonna happen in a movie before you see it.
    Now I know! A couple of months before the premiere, the leaks, it turned out, accurately reflected the finished film. I knew everything about the story, from beginning to end. There were absolutely NO surprises (except for the frantic pace, I guess).
    In this particular case, I don't know if it affected my view of the film all that much, since I didn't really care about it, but it was an interesting experience nonetheless.

    Originally it was "a social countdown to Episode VII", and was then updated with each upcoming film after that.
