I wanted to see the movie again, and this time I took She Who Must Be Obeyed (SWMBO), as well as my boy again. We took our special edition 3D glasses:
and wore our troll shirts:
and got there just before the movie started.
Anyway, SWMBO, did not like the prequels (except for the end of Episode 2, with A**-kicking Yoda, which is the only part of any of the three prequels she liked), and didn't want to go see this one. But after it was over she told me she was glad I'd talked her into it and that she was looking forward to seeing more. She also said the 3D was totally worth it, in this case, which surprised me.
I also wanted to add that this is the first movie that I was actually excited to see a second time in the theater in LONG time. And I'm glad I did. It was impossible to live up to the hype, you know that's true. But having got the basics of the plot, the jaw-dropping spoilers out of the way, it was great to sit back and see how beautiful this movie actually is. It is really beautiful to look at, and the 3D really DOES add to it the second time around. The chemistry of the characters is good, and there is a lot of humor that I missed the first time around.
So, if you were a bit disappointed the first time around, maybe give it a second shot. I think I;m going to discount day on Tuesday. Yeah, I liked it that much, this time.
