Since this will probably be the last Star Wars movie, I'm feeling very much the same way.

But I'll probably still go to the first showing Sunday morning rather than the 1st night. This Dawg's not fond of big crowds, most of the time. Unless they come to see me.



I am

Not ignorant at all, just not steeped in arcane psych theory, there are far worse fates.

In a small nutshell, in psychoanalytic developmental theory, children are thought to go through a stage where they begin to resent and challenge their same sex parent for the affection of their opposite sex parent. This is thought to manifest as giving the same sex parent a hard time for a while. The child is thought to eventually identify with the same sex parent which has implications for personality development. It's called the Oedipus complex because of the Greek play in which the character Oedipus unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Of all the critique directed at Freud's psychoanalytic theory, this part is a regular favorite. The joke was that my 6 year old casts me as the big bad jedi/sith while casting himself as the little jedi master, very much a fantasy with Oedipal overtones.

I don't know if they're new and haven't spread everywhere, but if you have them at your favorite theater, they rock.
We have things like them in the Uk, to collect tickets you've bought online from the cinemas website

Cranky........
good explaination of the oedipal complex..........I have tried to explain it to hubby before and he always looks at me like..............."HUH"????? I am going to the show before you it seems so I will give you feedback.........it is of course up to each parent to decide. But knowing what I do know about it, it may be best to wait to let him see it. Actually, the advice to see it first yourselves is the best, then you can decide.

Let me just add this one little thing to the question of whether to let your kid see the movie or not. If they've watched and are fans of the other Star Wars movies, and you don't let them see this one. They will always remember that. You may not think something like that would carry on with a kid, but whether you ever find out about it or not, I assure you they will remember that for the rest of their lives.

I know how I would feel if I were a kid who was a big Star Wars Fan and couldn't see the new movie.

That was funny about the Kid being freaket out by Lilo and Stitch (a Kids Movie).

I'm seeing the movie on the thursday with friends, and then I'll be taking my Little Brother and Sister (9 and 13 respectfully) during the weekend

Kids have access to far worse movies than Star Wars anyway

"I think the burning scene alone is what gave this film the PG-13 rating."

The aboce quote was taken from the news article I linked to. If the author is right that this scene was one of the makor reasons that it was given a PG13 (or here in the UK PG12A) then why didn't they cut this one scene ?

I think there are plenty of ways to get accross what has happened without causing the BBFC to give it a rating that would loose many of your younger customer fanbase.... I am surprised this was left it.

Yes, I too know how it would feel....not very nice....especially when I would be being relentlessly marketed to by dozens of toys, brands and offers.

It was this same argument over Spiderman that lead to the introduction of the 12A rule here in the UK. Yet this has done nothing to solve the problem....

But since I am over 12 I suppose it doesn't matter for me

Me neither. When they created the 12a rule, they re-issued Siderman, as it had finished when the rule came about.

That's my situation at the mo. I have a 13 year old son and a 10 year old daughter who are Star Wars fanatics and I can't imagine taking my son and NOT my daughter. It would crush her.
The pissy thing is, I am DYING to see this movie on the big screen ( I waited for the DVD's for epis 1 and 2 ) so I don't know what to do.

Yracy, you could go and see it yourself and make your own mind up if it is suitable....

Or, read the advice from others who have seen the film. Check the link I posted above.

Or is your problem that the cinema won't allow your daughter into the movie ?

Ernie,
I think I'll take your advice and wait for a few comments from people who go to see it right off the hop. The theater will allow my daughter in, it's just that as her Mum is it a movie I really want to take her to see ( on the big screen things are much scarier ) that's over an hour away ( I live out in the boondocks ) and wait in line forever for a film that might scare the pants off her?
I dunno if the kids would take kindly to me seeing it first and not take them. There could be a revolt in my house

Yeah, Just from Reading the Book... The Final Showdown Between Obi Wan & Anikin Gets Pretty Brutal...

So... Perhaps a Pre-Screening By You Might Be Worth Looking Into...

Whatever You Decide to Do... Good Luck!!

Remember Folks, This Movie is About The Rise Of The Galactic Empire (From Here on Refered to as the Empire. The "Extermination" of the Jedi Knights... Anikin Skywalker falling Totally to the Dark Side... ect... I Think We Get the Picture...

Well, I Have Gone to See Each Star Wars Movie With My Cousin... and we can't go During the Week... (He's Got Work )... Will Probablly wind up having to wait until the Next Weekend after it Opens here .

I Would Think Most Theatres Will Have Multiple Theatres Showing Episode III (Revenge of The Sith)

I Like Catching the Bargain Matinees Personally...Gives You More Money to Spend at the Snack Bar ect...

Finally... I've been waiting to see the Rise of the Empire & Anikin Skywalker/Darth Vader Taking Down all the Jedis...(As I Slip on My Black Sith Lorf Gloves) : "Arrise Lord Vader"--Emperor Palliteen

And At the Time: Just Like Blade... I Never

I Really Didn't Miss Much though, My OWN SNORING Woke Me up.

I Went to See the Show the Next Day With My Friend & His Family... (My Niece Payed My Way the 1st time, and My Buddy Picked up the Tickets on the Next Showing) BTW... The Movie was Van Helsing : I Started trying to Doze Off During the 1st Few Minutes... (Part thats in B&W) :

I've Since Picked up My Very Own Copy of Van Helsing... :

Whenever I Want to go See a New Movie, I Will Schedule a Time for a Nap; and Drink Lots of Mountain Dew Code Red (Guess thats Why I'm Assigned to Red Squaderon) :

My Sister Lives in Stephenville, TX... its a Nice Small, Friendly College Town... Their Bargain Matinees for New Movies are: ONLY $2.00 & ONLY $5.00 for Regular Showings (After 6:00 PM)
