    I am 70 years young and have not been in a movie theatre in 30 years. However Star Wars is all the our Son, daughter-in-law, and their two girls, ages 11 & 14, talk about and cannot wait for Christmas break so they can go and see this movie.

    3.8 rating is stellar? Really? Learn the definition of stellar if you want to be a writer.

    Yes, the “writing” on this site is extremely poor.

    I thought the same about “stellar” unless they were trying to make a space pun.
    I will not read reviews, and form my own opinion when I decide to go see Star Wars and help out the small struggling movie studio.
