I could deal with a LOT less CGI though. The part at the end when they're on the old set from ANH gave me chills - soooooo much better than the CGI crapfest thrown at us through the rest of the movie.
ANH - 100-ish
ESB - 75-ish
ROTJ - 50-ish
I saw TPM 4 times in the theater, never rented or owned it. I saw AOTC twice in the theater, never rented or owned it.
I remember as a kid we didn't own the VHS copies, so that limits my numbers. I DID have the little read-along records for them all and listened to those COUNTLESS times - does that count? Wow - 200+ times for some of you, eh? That's a lot. I got really into LOTR over the past few years, so my numbers have been lagging since 2001.

Yes, I LOVE it. The airport extreme is bad-ass and so simple! And the superdrive. The whole thing is just so superfast, super quiet and super small - it's awesome. I can't seem to get anything done now though - I just wanna play with it all the time
Sorry to hi-jack the thread here, but as for the PC v. Mac debate, I can say that I have had both for a while now (a pretty powerful desktop PC and a Mac G4 desktop, which I basically just inherited and never used because I was scared to try something new), and since being forced to switch to a Mac at work recently, I am DEFINITELY preferring the Macs (which is why I chose the PowerBook - with Tiger of course). It's just so easy! Who knew that computing could be so... so... common-sense and user-friendly?? It's almost TOO easy to figure out - I'm constantly second-guessing the computer and saying to myself "this COULDN'T be all there is to it to it... could it?" And the answer is yes! That's all there is to it, and that's exactly how it should be. And the security threats are almost non-existent (at least for the time being). I'm definitely a convert... I'm born again, baby! Computers are exciting again!!
My favorite pro-Mac quote: "DOS Computers, manufactured by millions of companies, are by far
the most popular, with about 70 million machines in use wordwide.
Macintosh fans, on the other hand, may note that cockroaches are
far more numerous than humans, and that numbers alone do not denote
a higher life form." (from the New York Times, 1991)
Now, back on topic - someone fill me in about the bit-torrent and MySpleen downloads
As for the cartoon - I LOVE IT! If it weren't for people at work, I probably would never have watched it (I don't have cable). But they were so excited about it that I jus thad to check it out - watched one episode online and rushed out to buy the DVD ($14.95 at Target). I've already lent it to 2 of my friends and they loved it too. I do think it's pretty sad that a cartoon can do a better job than the first 2 live-action prequels, but hey, I'll take what I can get!
Anyway, what I meant to say above is that I thank all of you for the welcomes, and I hope I don't inspire any ire and get banned! I'm sorry my post inspired such reminiscing
I probably won't be posting that much though, mostly lurking. I don't particulary like to say anything unless I think I can truly contribute to the discussion, which usually takes a lot of thinking on my part, and I just don't usually have the time required! But I enjoy reading everyone's comments, so keep up the good work And thanks again for the welcomes...
This is going around at some of the collecting sites like Rebelscum: Obi-One With the Force WTF?? What’s today’s date again?? 😉
