::claps:: Amen! People have to remember what exactly they are going to see. When you buy tickets for a stupid-looking comedy, you don't expect great romance. Just the same, when you buy tickets for Star Wars, don't expect the great intellectual flick of the season.

I loved how involved the audience got, particularly at the Yoda light saber fight scene and the scene where dozens of Jedi were fighting. It makes the experience so much meaningful and fun.

I think my biggest concern for the folks holding off and saying "I'll see it in a month" is that they will probably lose a lot of that involvement. There's something almost ritualistic in the experience that has to be lost if you see it in a vacuum like most reviewers or wait for the release of the DVD.

I saw it last night with Megan (and boy, was her geek showing). I thought it was great and would see it again, too. We were at the 10:20p.m. show on Saturday. It was one of the first that didn't sell out, although there was still a decent-size crowd. There were no audible oos or ahhs for Yoda except from Megan, and we were the only people who clapped at the end. It definitely does lose something without the crowd of die-hards around you...

I think I said this while I was out there, but I don't think that middle-America has quite as high a geek-quotient as Greater Boston. I'm glad you liked it, though. I'll be anxious to hear your take on it next time we talk.
