THERE ARE NO SPOILERS.
What a fun movie! I eagerly look forward to all the books that will come out! My Star Wars fandom consists of mostly all the books and spin offs that are released since the early 90's. I loved the movies growing up but it was the books that really caught and held my attention.
So again, no spoilers in the post, basically a sharing of the night of the film.
HUGE line. Multiple lines actually! We got to the theater 4 hours before hand and looked at the line, It looked ridiculous and it was freezing, after walking around the building we saw our showing wasn't that long of a line so we took off for dinner. After sushi, came back into line with easily only 50+ people in front of us. My friend really wanted to sit in the middle and for me, siting in the middle IS DEATH but she insisted and I made the compromise, I told her, you get the seat when we get in and I'll get the food. When I made it into the theater with the food, there she sat defeated in an aisle seat! Praise be! I love me the aisle!
With a good hour before the film actually started, we people watched. A very loud and angry group of people were complaining to management that they didn't want to sit in the front row, so more and more people in the first two rows started to raise a fuss, so they were ushered into an empty theater. Who annoying is that? What did you think was going to happen if you didn't get in line? I hate privilege people.
There was special Star Wars popcorn buckets passed out, plastic ones and tin ones and I bought the plastic one mostly because my friend wanted one so I gave it to her. Lots of people jumping in out of their seats, we would boo the Star Trek trailer and moan at that Superman vs Batman one. No one has time for these things, get to Star Wars! But honestly I love trailers so I didn't mind but it was funny for all these people to have a reaction. There was clapping during the film, cheering in the film, someone did scream during the film and one person at the end was bawling over r2-d2 (no worries, not a spoiler), she just really loved him that much.
They had us exit out the theater a separate way as to not disturb the whole new groups of lines outside waiting. Which made sense, there was a lot of obnoxious kids shouting 'fake spoilers'. I truly can't wait to see it again, I want to focus more on the score the second time around, I had thought of slipping out to seeing it tonight but this has been a busy week and I really needed a nap! I have plans to see it Tuesday and again on Saturday with diff people. I hope to have a spoiler-filled post up soon with my reactions/theories/gifs/etc..
