Movie Reviews

I can't believe I bought this movie

"DO NOT BELIEVE THE REVIEWS!!! I BOUGHT THIS MOVIE STRICTLY OFF THE REVIEWS, AND I TRULY WISH I HAD NOT.I am a Star Wars nut. I now realize that I'm not a nut of watching Star Wars lunatics. I thought this would be an interesting glimpse into another aspect of the Star Wars realm, one that's not heavily documented elsewhere. However I was unbelievably disappointed to find out that this was nothing more than a documentary of several people in the months, weeks, and days ahead of Episode 1, with 90% of it devoted to the people waiting in line. If you think standing in line is boring, you should see how agonizing it is to watch people waiting in line, especially over a period of months. This movie has no spark, no inspiration, and no appeal whatsoever...and I'll watch anything Star Wars. This film was basically the equivalent of a news program, where they stand outside a movie theater and ask people as they're waiting or as they're leaving what they think. Don't buy this movie, don't rent this movie, don't even watch it at a friend's house. It's not even worth 5 minutes of your time, let alone the whole film."
Wish I was a fan way back when

"For those who were unable to participate in the mayhem that was generated by Episode One, you will be inspired to do so with this documentary.
A funny and smart film driven by fans, this ride will take you through Death Valley, to the Lucas Ranch, on a competitive toy run and then back to the lines forming at two theaters around Los Angeles. Fun stops along the way include, an interview with Uncle Owen, discussions with two homeless film critics, a priest, and scenes from "Star Wars the Musical".
Starwoids revives the term "documentary".
With loyality, it details creative activities that are produced by dedicated fans."
Great movie, fan or no fan

"I don't even know much about Star Wars and I still thought it was one the funniest movies I've seen in years. The mere soap opera of the two lines was worth the viewing alone. What I thought was going to be another "Talking heads" doc, this movie actually has a comedic and dramatic structure that follws through to the very end. I'm sure this movie will ripe even better in age and become a Woodstock for the "Star Wars" generation. The commentary by the director was good as well. You can really tell a lot of heart (and talent) went into making this film and hats off to everyone involved."

"...The rapping D.J. Bobba Fett was my favorite, but then again, so was the trip that the toys took to their original locations.
My friend bought the VHS and it had a special introduction by the filmmaker that was great! I just bought the VHS too!IndieDVD has come through again and their teamng up with Film Threat is proof that they are to FILM what Punk Rock is to MUSIC."
