I'm not holding it against the movie, I'm only saying why I didn't like it as much. I still enjoyed it.

Re: fun to know beforehand: I tend to disagree. I can enjoy movies where I know the plot, but there's a difference between knowing "Rebels are on the ice world Hoth and have to fight against Imperial walkers" and "In the fight, Luke's ship is going to crash, at which point he'll run on foot to a walker, pull himself up, and use his lightsaber to take down a walker, after which Han takes Leia out on the Falcon and Luke goes to Dagobah where his ship will land in a swamp, and..."
So, you dislike watching movies multiple times.

There's a difference between watching a spoiled movie, and watching a movie you've seen before.

I have to agree. There are plenty of movies I enjoy watching multiple times, but watching a movie for the first time is unique. Maybe you'll catch something new on the second or twentieth viewing, but those viewings are generally about the same. You can't re-experience your first time.

A great example of this would be Memento. I have seen that movie at least a dozen times, and they're all enjoyable. None of the subsequent viewings blew my mind like the initial viewing, though.

I can't really speak too much about the plot twists in the original trilogy. I was 8 when I saw Empire. While I recognized the father revelation, it didn't register as monumental to my kid brain. The sister revelation was grokked better by my 11-year-old brain, though, but not enough to realize how silly that was getting. I'm sure that Empire could have been really cool for the adults in the theatre. It would have been like a soap opera...but with lightsabers.

The thing I am most looking forward to is people that grew up with the prequels behaving towards the sequel(s) the same way the people that grew up with the original trilogy behave towards the prequels.

That wasn't terrible.  It just wasn't Star Trek.

I can't seem to find it online, but I read an article a couple years ago that compared JJ Abrams Star Trek to Star Wars and the similarities were, well, numerous.

He's basically a great fit for Star Wars and was a bad fit for Star Trek (despite making movies people liked, but Trekkies had mixed feelings about).

It's kinda sweet to see the excitement and the I-can't-believe-I-am-doing-this-ness of the people involved.

I'm just sad they didn't want me in the movie... They hired some actor instead.

Don't.  If you strike him down, he will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.

I still don't like the prequels, but I can appreciate what Lucas tried to do.

That was a very interesting read.  I wonder how much of it is the literary/film equivalent of numerology though.

Speaking of numerology: three movies in a trilogy; three total trilogies.  Half-Life 3 confirmed?

Finn squaring off against Kylo Ren, Dark Jedi of the Ren Order. Not as cool as me mind you, but pretty awesome. Finn looks like he's not ready.
