A movie and popcorn just was not enough

I already wrote a little bit more about this on myLot, but I just wanted to put a note up here.

I went to see the new Star Wars movie that came out a couple of months ago. I just was not impressed with it. Perhaps, it just lost its appeal with me? But I found it to be much more slow moving, and quite boring, then what I expected. I heard some great reviews from friends who thought earlier.

the price was fine. It was a free showing here at the base theater, where I live. So, I bought a bucket of popcorn and a soda, and that became my dinner. But even that did not give me much satisfaction. I feel over-stuffed, but I don't feel satisfied.

The Star Wars movie previews and trailers did not impress me. I was even embarrassed with the fact that C-3P0 and R-2D2 and that other thing showed up on stage on Oscar night. The kids might love this stuff, but to me I prefer the original Star Wars. But it doesn't do the same for me as before. I guess I have higher expectations or have become a bit more mature.

I liked the original star wars but it has lost its appeal for me. Yes, popcorn and soda are not satisfying, no matter how much you eat. emoticon :sad:

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your film and popcorn. Better luck next time.

I did not watch the Oscars. I heard I didn't miss much.

I absolutely love popcorn. But just didn't do anything for me yesterday. But, the upside is that it's fiber!

Oh, I always enjoy popcorn. It just did not feel quite like dinner.

Oh there were certain moments when I thought I was watching the Twilight Zone. Chris Rock was the Master of Ceremonies and boy did he go on with the racial jokes I tell you that.

I've never seen a Star Wars movie or wanted to. I'm not all that interested in space themes. I do, however, love popcorn.

Me, too. And I can eat a bucket by myself. If it were a double feature, I would have had a free refill, and could have eaten the 2nd bucket.

I have not been into the movies for quite so long now.
