Excellent.

I haven't been there since they got a real space shuttle instead of the Enterprise they had before.

Interesting, I'd never seen Rock Creek in winter.

I think this line's mostly filler.

There might be some Rock Creek in there, but it will mostly be Glover Archbold Park (which will probably look pretty similar to Rock Creek, but goes right past my house).

I said Rock Creek when I meant Great Falls, so I'm double wrong.

Right, that too. If it's not Glover Archbold on my Flickr page, it's probably C&O/Great Falls.

Star Wars Spoiler: My Star Wars experience was nearly Spoiled by the 5 year old sitting next to me who smelled bad!

(But even in a Sunday 1pm showing full of kids, it was a good time.)

That's why I went on a weekday afternoon. Maybe two dozen people, all adults. Of course most people don't have that option, but if you do, I highly recommend it.

I went to the 3D Imax show at Udvar Hazey Air and Space museum on Saturday at 1:50 in the afternoon. Big theater. Sold out. A month after the movie opened. Every seat was full and some of the wheelchair slots were full too. I know it was Imax, and a special theater, but I was surprised at how packed it was. We got in the seating line an hour before the start and about 200 people were in front of us already. I guess it was 200. The line snaked through the crowd control ropes back and forth 5 times and one fifth of the theater got there before us. I can't find the capacity of the theater. Felt like 1,000 people in the theater and 200 in front of us.

Probably a lot of them has seen it before in a regular theater. Maybe even there and dragged their friends back. Or Mom had taken the kids to a regular theater, but on Dad's visitation weekend it was fuck you, I'm taking them to Imax, bitch.

Rogue One.

I liked it. But it was kind of forgettable a day after seeing it. Completely different feel from the other movies. Lots of action and little dialog.

Of the 8 Star Wars movies, I'd put it 5th. In front of the 3 crappy prequels.

And since this is the SPOILER thread, I need to put a spoiler or two in here.

Notable to me was that the big quote from the trailer where Forrest Whittaker says something like "What will you become?" is not in the actual movie. So I was surprised when he died. I though he was going to get away in order to say that one line at a future date.

I liked that all the characters died. It really drives home the idea that the rebellion takes their cause seriously.

I saw Rogue One at 10am on December 27th. The movie run time is 2 hours and 13 minutes, so it ended at about 12:13pm.


Spoiler alert:
Carrie Fisher has a scene in the movie a couple minutes before the end credits roll. That scene would be at about noon, I would guess.

Carrie Fisher died, according to Wikipedia, at 11:55 am.

Not only was I watching her movie when she died, but it was within ten minutes of me seeing her cameo in the movie.
