I'm not the biggest Star Wars fan, and I liked it well enough, but I gotta say that this one seemed to drag on forever. When you factor in the 20+ minutes of previews you're basically in the theatre for 3 hours. It was too long.
I sat first row center seat, good place to watch a movie like this.
There were a lot of parts that could've been trimmed. I like the movie a lot on its own but I think it does a terrible job of being the middle piece of a three-part story or for that matter the second-last piece in a 9 part story.
