I'm lucky enough to have seen all of them at the cinema first time round.
I was five years old when my parents took me to see Star Wars (my first ever trip to the cinema) at my local fleapit in 1977. I didn't remember much about it apart from spaceships exploding near the end.

Saw TESB at Weston Super Mare cinema and clearly remember humming the Imperial March rather loudly while walking back through Dolphin Square on our way back to the hotel.
Leave me alone, I was eight.

Saw ROTJ at Redditch cinema in '83. My parents didn't seem to care much for it but I loved it - Ewoks and all.


Also went on the opening days of the 1997 revamps and Episodes 1-3.

I just watched Dragon Eyes thinking Van Damme was the lead in it but it turned out he was barely in it. The film was ok though I guess.

Saw Bullet To The Head today. It was enjoyable, but rather Channel 5.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Never did see Django Unchained. Poxy cinema in Germany changed all of its English films so I never went in the end. Most likely wait until it comes out on DVD now.

The Green Hornet - quite a bit shit. Think rip off of iron man minus the humour, charm and awesomeness. Although I did only really watch it cas Christopher Waltz was in it as the villain. 5/10.

I'd like it if they remade this is into a serious film as a 1920s pulp mobster film. It would really work.

Rumours on Avengers 2 (and 3). They don't seem MASSIVELY plausible but interesting nonetheless.

Also contains massive spoilers.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

I'm surprised by this but I agree with Andy :lol: .
I'm not a fan myself but I can see why people like them. Just like I enjoy Rocky films.
I see the bad moon arising.

I saw Fast and the Furious and hated it. I managed half of the second one before reaching for the remote control and haven't watched any of them since. But hey, that's just me.
My gripe isn't with the movies though, but with the trailer itself.

Do the makers of these films think everyone who watches them suffers from ADD?
FLASH FLASH FLASH FLASH FLASH. Apart from the final couple of shots (which lasted a mighty 2 seconds each), I don't think anything lasted for more than 1.5 seconds on the screen, with the majority lasting just one second or under. It was just "quick! cram everything into a minute before they get bored!".

Easily one of the worst trailers I've ever seen.
