Yes, I thought that part was good, too. Anakin was rather good looking,
IMO, which I enjoyed just fine. ;-)

Yes, indeed. My son also pointed out a few tidbits that end up being points
in the "future" episodes, too.

I'm still laughing about Yoda. I enjoyed various scenes immensely (I won't
say what for those who haven't seen it yet and who will be going). Lots to
that little wise character.... ;-)

Me, too!

That would be terrific..... maybe make it a weekend adventure. (I was
thinking of one or two each night at home from Blockbuster, but seeing them
on the big screen would be far better!)

No, we didn't here. But I'm also not surprised to hear that, as we have had
increased security on and off, though, since the September 11th attacks.
There are guards at the doors and more people walking around with walkie
talkies but we didn't have our bags checked.

Wow! That's far more than I've seen here at any of the theaters so far. I'm
not sure what that's about except for extra security measures. Where are
you? I'm in northern California (Sacramento).

Were there reserved seats? We just had tickets and first-come first-serve
seating here. We went to the 6:15pm show here, which was a good one for not
too many crowds. They were lined up around the building when we left around
