Star Wars on opening night (and Trekkies)

posted by Jason Kottke May 19, 1999

I saw Star Wars last night. It wasn't too bad...it fits nicely with all the other Star Wars movies. And it was neat to be part of the whole experience...waiting in line, seeing people dressed up as storm troopers, Princess Leia, and Darth Maul, and cheering when the music started and the cheesy 70's Star Wars logo filled the screen.

And in related news, Star Wars geeks everywhere are getting their blood tested today...

Speaking of geeks, if you're a big geek like me, head out to see Trekkies. The fanaticism of some of these hardcore Star Trek fans is amazing and often hilarious. So skip that 8th viewing of Star Wars and go see this instead.
