    Everywhere I look, all I see is STAR WARS, STAR WARS, STAR WARS, and if I were still young, I'd be in heaven. All through my childhood years, I loved the original trilogy and often lamented the fact that I was born too late to see any of them in theaters or to get any of the good toys (all my Star Wars toys came from flea markets, believe it or not).

    And, now, I find that I don't care at all. Maybe it's got something to do with Lucas' constant tweaking of episodes 4-6 (which annoys the hell out of me) or maybe it was because I HATED Attack of the Clones, but whatever it was, I simply have no drive to see the new movie at all. And that kind of depresses me, first because that's all ANYONE'S talking about and all they will talk about for the next 5 days, at least. And second, I sort of feel like I'm betraying my younger self in a way. I feel like I should be excited just because this would've been the greatest thing ever when I was a kid.

    Dan, I know what it is. Are you ready?

    Sitting down?

    You have matured.

    Hey, watch what you say about maturing.

    I think the last two Star Wars stunk, too. Yes, it's hard to get excited over the one about to be released. I'm hoping that this one will make up for them. The origional Star Wars were awesome.

    I have heard that this one is much "darker" than the previous. I wasn't over excited about the last one - which made my anticipation of this one a bit on the low side.

    But you know what I am excited about? They are re-making the Bad News Bears! With Billy Bob Thorton!

    What a movie!!!!!!!

    Yes, unfortunately.

    And I threw up a little in my mouth when I did.

    I wonder what would happen if there was a remake of Barbershop with Woody Harrelson, Ray Romano, etc (a bunch of white guys).

    Would some Hollywood/non Hollywood types call that racist?
