isntead of throw rocks, offer your ******* blu ray boxset to people like I did with my coworkers...

then tell them to watch: 4, 5, 2, 3, 6

in that order, skipping phantom.

I am not a huge follower of Star Wars; I've seen them at some point, have a loose idea of the story. This film I saw many repeating themes and parallels as though some scenes where revamped snipets from past movies. I do enjoy that the situational humor wasn't overbearing.

I'd watch it again

So far, actual spoilers have not been prevalent which reflects more on movie fans I think.
i'm one of those people.

I think you bought the wrong box set.

It has three superfluous discs of drivel in it.

No, 4-5-2-3-6 is a legitimate order, and is the preferred order.

Episode 1 has a bare minimum of Episodic-plot-relevant content, a huge amount of young-Anakin-fluff, and the 30-kilo airline sickness bag of completely enragingly-brainless-kill-it-with-fire JarJarBinks vomit.

The above order keeps major plotlines spoilers relevant (Luke's father, etc), and provides a nice two-episode flashback sequence before Return of the Jedi. Which has Ewoks, and a derivative, this-feels-weak-really-another-one Death Star, but it is what it is.

Episode 7 is a well-crafted, modern soft reboot of Star Wars. It gives me hope for the rest of the series. If they do this right, they can make movies forever while still making good movies.

Isn't that Disney's new business model?

ie. Churn out decent money-making sequels, it's much safer than creating new movies.

I think with Disney in charge, there's "A new hope" for the Star Wars franchise, they won't just churn out mindless sequels, they know they're sitting on a goldmine for the next decade at least in merchandising alone.

They have Pixar for completely new, fresh stuff. Which can have sequels, of course. Now they have Lucasfilm for epic intertwined multi-episodic storylines. I would like to see them take it the way of the Avengers series.

The thought of dueling massive multi-episodic intertwining storyline sci-fi series makes me all giggity inside.

Saw it again yesterday. Definitely enjoyed it more the second time. This time I wasn't analyzing every second trying piece together how its tied into the first ones and could just watch it.
Its still bothers me that they pretty much recycled most of the storyline from 4 though.

I watched again yesterday as well.

The one thing that bugged me was BB8's antenna is different from the beginning of the movie as it it from the rest.

I couldn't get past the fact that BB8 just looked like a beach ball rolling around the place (that's probably where the name came from, Beach Ball (BB) ).

The only reason I'd want to see the film again so soon is the scene where the chick picks up the lightsabre for the first time - I REALLY wanted to hit the REWIND button to watch it again since I'm sure there was more in it that scene that I missed.

I saw it in 3D and can't really say it added much.
Some of the 3D features just looked like the characters were in front of others but still looked 2 dimensional (ie. they just looked layered).
The GREAT 3D effect was the full-screen capitol ship rumbling through space,
it really seemed I could just reach about a metre in front of me and "doink" the tip of the ship with my left index finger.
I expected more from the Star Wars 3D experience.

Same. 3D didn't do much for the movie for me. But it was the showtime we needed, so 3d it was.

I went to buy tickets to see it again this week, and it's actually still all sold out (at least the times I'd be willing to see it after work) :(
