Do you guys have any collectible hobbies?  
These days not really, but I used to collect post stamps and also coins from around the world when I was a teen. I still have my collections from that time.

Me too! I still have my vast stamp collection and many old coins. I used to collect trading cards when I was younger. Still have quite a few of them.

Well, you're never too old for something unless you yourself feel like it doesn't interest you anymore, so I would personally just do whatever you feel like that makes you happy. Life's too short for anything else

The only thing I really remember collecting was also postage stamps, although I think I collected them mostly because it was kind of a trend and a popular thing for kids to do at the time. I don't remember ever being too passionate about the whole collecting aspect of it anyway. I still have all that stuff saved too somewhere.

I'm probably gonna get hanged for this, but I'm so sick of Star Wars. And now when Disney owns the rights? Well, animated musical. Nuff said.

I will still watch it when it comes out, but I am certainly not hyped for it.

No

I have incredibly mixed feelings about seeing this one, maybe especially so after hearing about a few spoilers to the story. It just sounds very set up for disappointment, but I suppose I might still drag myself out to see it before it leaves the theatres completely.

You must listen to that 10 year old boy inside of you screaming at you to go see it. You'll regret it if you don't.

And don't read spoilers. That's the one thing I've managed to avoid. It's got good reviews and they say it's better than the prequels.

So I take it you've actually seen it then?

If so, what was the verdict/overall impression?

Unfortunately not but not because I don't want to. My cinema introduced "allocated seating" this year. Before, I could sit where I want, but now you're given specific seats so you don't know who you're going to be sat next to. Put me off going.

I will definitely catch it on bluray.

Well, I've seen it now and while the effects are of course definitely of a "best viewed on the big screen" kind, the rest of the movie really isn't. I'd save the pennies and just get it in whatever way you can when it becomes available.

Whereas the typical (mine, at least) disappointment with Alien and Predator films tend to be that something in the visuals, creature design etc looks silly or doesn't add up to previous canon, with this one it was the opposite - everything looked about the same as the old movies but there was practically nothing added storywise instead. There was no depth or "soul" to it, it felt incredibly flat and forgettable throughout - just eye candy for the fans with a bunch of old actors who were just... there, doing their same old thing they were doing before, just looking a lot more tired like they didn't really want to be there.

My review could basically be summed up with a big shrug. About the only thing I found positive was that the ending lends a small hope that the next one could possibly get a bit more exciting.

As far as the seating it's always been that way here, you can pick your seat number in the room but then you're expected to commit to it (unless there's many free seats after the movie starts in which case you could of course move and nobody would complain).

I did find it very liberating when I was in the US though to be able to sit just wherever and I do wish we had that system here as well. Too bad if they're deliberately getting rid of a good thing, seems a strange choice.
