While the critics have liked the new star wars, people I know who have seen it mostly hated it.   Many thought it was the worst one ever... a slow car chase is how it was described (think OJ).  

I'm not a star wars fan, so I never planned on seeing it.  I do think the fact that people seem to have loved it or hated it seems interesting.   Not as many in the middle.  

I do think Disney has a formula that works very very very well in their animated films.   I'm not so sure that always translates to other types of movies.

With kids, we go to most of the animated movies.   With kids, adult movies mean date night and the reality is when we go out, the movies are usually not a priority.   We go to other events.

Ent-- (and others). I started a Last Jedi thread.  Please discuss the movie over there, and not here.  Thanks.

My oldest daughter is 11 and she's started getting into some movies that I like, like Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy.  It gives me an excuse to go to the movies - I hardly ever went after my third girl was born just because it was too much of a hassle.  

Theatres are getting really fancy.  But I hate, hate 3D effects in movies.  However, one theatre opened up a Dolby screen, which I accidentally went to because I thought it would be cheap.  It was not cheap, but it was pretty cool.  I watched Blade Runner on that, and you could feel the sounds in your chest.

I think I've been to the theaters a total of 5 times in my 38 years of existence and definitely not more than once in the past 20.

Why pay a premium on top of the ordinary cost of attending a movie?    No movie experience has ever been that good or critical to see at a first run.   I did go see Dunkirk with other male friends, but haven't seen an adult movie w my wife since Lincoln.

Lincoln is/was a movie I wasn't about to take my very young (at the time) kids to see. 
I'm pretty sure it was PG-13, and that doesn't necessarily mean it had swear words, or violence to shield them from.

'AS'  Adult Situations.   They wouldn't be able to sit through any of it.  2:30 minute run time.

last time I was in theater was for Spiderman, probably 15 years ago or so

cause my daughter who was about 5 or 6 at the time wanted to go, but was scared and wanted me to go along

She's at UNL today - turns 21 in a couple weeks

indeed.  The funny thing is,  the kids demonstrate an awareness of Lincoln, as he's quite celebrated in most corners of the US (especially IL, IN, KY who all claim him) but then they ask about the Civil War, and it gets very complicated.   The one thing that really confuses them is why some but not all of their family members who served in the armed forces, why did some go to war, but not others.   They always ask my brother why he was in Korea if there wasn't a war.
