March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

'Wrong queue' for Star Wars fans

Fans plan to camp out until 19 May
Star Wars fans have started queuing seven weeks early for the opening of the final movie - but appear to have camped outside the wrong cinema.

I couldn't agree more... -_-

Sounds like the "Force" is definetly not with them.

So I'm in Rome, standing in line for like days, hoping to score some Star Wars 3 tickets.
Why Rome?
Cram it.
Anyway, I finally get to the end of the line, only to find that there's just some dead geezer.
No Star Wars tickets in sight!
See, that's what you get for trusting the Force.

What's even More sad than that? Showing up to the wrong theatre seven weeks early in a Jedi or Storm Trooper Costume...and you know they're all in costume if their waiting that long for something.......*shakes head*

and based on the shittyness of the last two why do people get their hopes so high? here's my message to all the 40 yr olds living in their parents basement clutching their 'vader lives' thermoses "move on"

I'd have to say that the second was the worst. It went nowhere really.

Can't be as bad as Jar Jar Binks generally.

The second was redeemed by Christopher Lee and Yoda whipping it out.

And the only thing that saved the first one was the pod race and the lightsaber duel at the end....

TPM was saved by what he said...

And the third, VADER....

I'll go see it, but I'm not getting my hopes up...

Where are my Ewoks at? Huh? WHERE'S THE FUCKIN' EWOKS?!?!?!??!!!?!?!?

I agree with Rachel, except that they were both bad, but the second one went nowhere, it had one cool part, yoda, that isnt cool after seeing it the first time (or like me, and have some idiot 13 yr old who saw it midnight the day before scream it out before the movie starts) and the whole thing isnt worth rewatching for the one little part

I just don't understand some folks,I usually just buy the tickets a few days before the moive comes out without a problem.

edit:forgot to add "days" in the sentence

I remember for episode 2 I made my room mates go really early (as in two hours) with me, and we got there and there was no lines, on the night it came out! it had opened midnight the night before so I guess all the hardcore people went then but I still thought there'd be mile long lines, there was no line longer than a regular weekend night... and the theatre was packed with a bunch of kids who had already seen it (which was when one of them screamed out that yoda fought in the movie... bastard...)

Going to the movies in Virginia is rather odd....if you leave on Opening day at 10 PM and get there in time for the first showing (even on a friday), you'll be the first one in the parking lot, and by the time the movie actually starts, nobody is there, and if there IS someone there, it's someone you'd never expect.

On the opening day for Sin city, the theatre was packed with people over the age of 65 (as in 70% of the audience). With all the violence, sexuality and perversion, you'd expect that all the old people woul've walked out, but they stayed throughout the duration of the movie. And When i went to go see 'Saw' (Which was awesome btw) this couple brought in a newborn baby and a toddler into the movie....who brings small children to a movie like that? I do know one thing: Their kids are going to grow up with serious mental problems....wierd shit though...

thats scary! 65 yr olds not knowing what they are getting themselves into...

Its the opposite where I live, if the theatre isn't packed with 12 yr olds (which, I dont know how they even get into these movies since the people still card ME) or worse, people there with their babies (usually mothers younger than me) there were several kids under 5 years old at the 10:30 showing of Sin City I went to go see... people are just... so stupid its scary <_<

So, I'm glad there weren't any damned kids at the showing when we watched it... That would've bugged the hell outta me to the point of getting my money back...

just be glad it's 12 year olds who are fully potty trained and don't scream at every loud noise...i've seen a couple 2 rows in front of me openly change a shitty diaper in the middle of a loud battle sequence with the baby screaming at the top of it's lungs, and then wouldn't stop throughout the movie (and the person who brought it in didn't have the common decency to leave the theatre or calm the baby down). It's no wonder we have such troubled youth...

yeah there was also the couple in their late teens with a baby, I haven't seen any diaper changing yet... that tops it alll... I think you win the bad movie goers expierence non-contest!! god I'd like rampage and kill just like in the movie

There was one time I went into a movie with my family (it was an incredibly crappy and boring movie) and there was absolutly noone else in the f 'in theater!!!
And we couldn't leave either cause my mom really liked it......
vip

that happened to me and my friend when we went to see "Death to Smoochy". So we did what you SHOULD do: Sit on opposite sides of the theatre and throw a tennis ball back and forth between glances at the screen :)
pixel
yeah, but this was a while back--my mom was there...and she liked the film (for reasons beyond my limited mortal understanding) so I probably would have gotten in trouble of some form or fashion.
pixel
Moms are good at doing that to kids. I can't go a week without getting grounded, and somehow my little brother is only grounded once in a blue moon. I just don't get it. Oh well, at least its not video games most of the time! <_<

Siblings are evil...and on a completely unrelated note (which just happens to be on-topic :D ) some Star Wars fans and Star Trek fans and etc. and etc. just need to (as Bill Shatner so eloquently put it) 'GET A LIFE'!! Some people (like me (I'm a Trekkie) or my friend (a SW mondo-nerd)) can handle it, but dressing up to go seven weeks early...(the wrong theater thing just compounded it) was just weird...

That reminds me of one of the best late night skits I've ever seen, on Conan O'Brien when Triumph visits the star wars geeks...lol. I almost fell out of my chair when he pointed to the buttons on the front of a supposed darth vader's costume and asked "Which one of these calls your mom when it's time to pick you up?"

on a unrelated to star wars but kinda related to the previous off-topic tangent note, me and my mate went to see a film (in england) and found that literally everyone else in the cinema was german.
it was weird.
