I hope everyone enjoyed the new Star Wars movie. I won't be able to see it until after Christmas when I'm healed up.

I've known girls into Star Wars before . I think it's more of being a nerd, than a guy thing, cause we nerds love our Star Wars, Star Trek, and whatever else. And nerd stuff isn't particularly Sci Fi oriented, most of it can be fantasy stuff.
Star Wars at the end of the day really is fantasy and mythology, just with a coat of space theme paint over it. All the influence in the stories can be found in various mythologies and old stories. The Odyssey is the main inspiration for the first film and where it draws most of it's story elements and work.
For many years, film critics haven't been able to understand Star Wars, and that's exactly why. Film critics don't read mythology, or do religious studies into fairy tales, or they'd be able to see that's where Star Wars gets 99% of it's material for inspiration.
I don't have a real problem with any of the Star Wars stuff. I am just pretty behind on it all since it's been many years since I paid attention to it much. My sister was more into it then I was so yeah females like Bogie said can dig it. Some become die hards and some are just casual side fans like me who just kinda partake time to time lol.
Not sure if I end up seeing the film this week or not but maybe eventually since I am sure it will be in theaters for a long long time lol.
