The Force Awakens #StarWars (No Spoilers)

During Christmas 2013, I finally decided to power through all of the Star Wars movies and see what the hype was about. It was a marathon session for sure, but I had a ton of time off work and was happy to binge watch something new.

My final verdict? The original ones (Episode IV, V & VI) were dope. The newer ones (Episode I-III) were just okay. If I was telling you about them via text, I'd probably say "meh" or "bleh" lol. Something about Hayden Christensen's acting was really distracting.

3 hr wait = eating a pizza
Anyways, I know a bunch of people are clueless as to why Star Wars is so big, don't understand the cult following, or why "Episode VII: The Force Awakens"matters. I assure you that, as a former member of the "I haven't seen Star Wars and I don't care about it at all" club, even if you are all *crickets* about the movies, you should at least give the new one a chance.

We snagged IMAX 3D tickets to Episode VII: The Force Awakens back in early November. The tickets sold out like crazy, but we got ours -- the only caveat? We would be viewing it at the Pacific Science Center IMAX which has one of the top 5 IMAX screens in the country but does NOT allow for assigned seating. Womp. That meant we had to get there EARLY if we wanted to get good seats... really good seats since we were going to see the movie in IMAX 3D. I mean, have you ever gone to see an IMAX or 3D movie and had a terrible seat? It's the worst.

So, I called the theater earlier in the day of our showing. They confirmed that the doors would open 4 hours before the show and that people had been coming around 3 hours before. She also told me to not bother coming if it was later than 2 hours before the show since it'd be so packed and the seats would more than likely suck. Shoutout to that chick and her priceless advice.

Where was I going with all of this -- the movie was really good. Go see it. Mod Pizza was clutch and held me down during the 3 hr wait. I also put 2 slices into my purse for the movie. #ThugLife lol. Oh yeah and always use the bathroom before the movie lol. I made sure to look up the movie length before it started. It was about 2.5 hrs and I knew I'd need to go ahead and break the seal before we went in.

Have you seen the movie yet? What'd you think?
