'I'm Having The Time Of My Life Out Here'

January 5, 2005

By Corwin Haeck

A local Star Wars fan does it again, gets in line months ahead of time for the next episode to hit theaters.

SEATTLE - Are you ready for Star Wars: Episode Three? Don't get excited just yet, the new movie doesn't open until May.

But for one Seattle fan, it's never too early, or too cold, to start the wait.

Jeff Twieden doesn't care that it's freezing outside. He's camping out in front of the Cinerama Theater in downtown Seattle, waiting for Episode Three to open. It's only 22 weeks away.
"I've got another sleeping bag coming, so that's sleeping bag number three," he says. "It's better to be too hot than too cold."

In 1999, Twieden made international headlines when he and another fan camped out for months in this same spot to see the first of George Lucas' prequel trilogy.

"A lot of people say 'Get a life,' stuff like that. But I'm having the time of my life out here."

Twieden thinks prequel episodes one and two were a mixed bag, but he can sum up the potential of Episode Three in one word.

"Vader, baby. Vader."

In the film, the villainous Darth Vader makes his first onscreen appearance in over 20 years.

"We all want to see Vader kick some ass," he says.

There's a potential problem in the long wait. Twieden isn't even sure Episode Three will play the Cinerama.

"That's the assumption I'm going on," he says. "If it isn't, I'll be more than happy to move to a different theater. It's really about the wait."

Rain or shine, through sleet or snow, the wait will last another 134 days.

"Star Wars is about independence and freedom," Twieden says. "And that's really what this wait is about. That complete and utter independence."

People who do this are stupid. I saw every one of the prequels at the first showing and got a prime seat.

I am planning a Star Wars thread later today, though. However, I'm holding out for an audience. :D

Sitting around in the cold in front of a movie theatre ain't like dustin' crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly too close to a star or jump right through a supernova and that'd end your trip real fast now, wouldn't it?

WARNING THIS SITE HAS SPOILERS!

Heres a site i found of someone who has already seen the movie.
I stopped reading much on it because there are spoilers, and i would rather not know them personally.

Here is an excerpt from the article, keep in mind these are early trial movies and it will be edited down.


Just before the film, a suit gets up and says that the movie we were about to see just finished being edited and has some technical flaws (never mind those) and that we were the first people to ever see the cut. *

After the film I did some research on the net at imdb.com and found the movie "KINGDOM OF HEAVEN". The movie was 3 hours and had tons of gory action,*intense*drama*and a romance story for good measure. The action was great and the acting was superb. I know that they will not keep the 3 hour running time because the movie had a few times where it really dragged along. *

The movie is very, Braveheart / ROTK / Gladiator / very epic!!! Anyways here's the story. *

"Planning"? Are you trying to figure out how to do better than that kid with the golf club?
