Ummmmmm ok.... So is MacRumors gonna be announcing every movie released on iTunes now? If so, I'll just turn off MacRumors notifications now.
Nope, but this is one of the highest grossing movies of all time and the audience overlaps quite a bit with ours. Our last post on it was quite popular.

Excellent! But I'll be waiting for the bluray. For something as magnificent as this film I want to experience it in the best quality I currently can.

Heads up: if you own this box set, there are spaces for episodes 7-9 if you remove the bonus disks.

not to forget that John Williams score disappointed as well, which is something that even the prequels delivered on.
John Williams is 84 now. I think we're lucky he delivered anything at all.

Oh..i'm just waiting for the next movie about The New Order to hunt down resistance on the planet similar to Hoth...with their AT AT walkers...to blast down their generators. I'm sure Kylo will be there with his storm troopers...and hopefully waiting to see Rey lose her arms as Kylo tells her..."Rey, you are my sister!"
Her response? "NOOOOOOO"
