    Was that they took darth vader, a villain from my childhood who was pretty much the top contender for most bad @$$ villain ever, and made him a whiny little nancy boy, pretty much taking every element of threat from that villain, now and forever. He went from being just a great villain, to someone who is vastly overcompensating to make themselves seem far more bad then they really are, and you just know inside that helmet, he is crying all the time and throwing tantrums.

    About the only thing i think is worse then vader is, the "new" vader from force awakens, darth emo was pretty much as pathetic as anakin. And such a incredibly lame character had no business killing who he did in that movie.
    LoL I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thought "well, crap, so much for Vader being scary anymore" after watching the prequels. I kept waiting for that sweet little kid to turn into a raging sociopath...and all he did was turn into a whiny, stupidly lovesick, little boy.

    And I won't even go into what was wrong/irritating with the regurgitated mess called "The Force Awakens", that list would probably end up being longer than the script for the movie was.

    Haven't seen Rogue One yet, hoping to catch it in the theater since most of the people who disliked TFA or the prequels have really enjoyed R1.

    A question for anyone who has seen Rogue one in 3D at the theaters. Is the 3D really worth it for this particular movie?

    Not to me, but, I've only got one eye so any 3D movie ain't worth my money

    3D movies give me a headache and make my stomach queasy...3D screen "rides" at theme parks make me want to puke in the first 30 seconds (I have no problem with regular rides). 2D movies have the same depth perception as real life, which is good enough for me, and I rarely leave the theater wanting to hurl...unless it's a Baldwin brothers movie.

    Good question? I was thinking of taking the kids to see it this weekend and only the more expensive theaters are still showing it in 3D. So now is it worth and extra $7 per ticket to see it in 3D?

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
