Good stuff Jeff and interesting theories.  Lots of stuff to think about and consider before Ep. VIII in May of 2017.

Yeah there certainly is. I really need to read the novelization as well. Went and saw the movie again today with my Wife and Niece. The last two viewings were in non 3D, and even though I like 3D, I do find the standard movies seem easier for me to follow, as I am not as distracted as much.

One more thought based off my previous thought, that I later felt was incorrect

I just saw it for the second time! The first time around it was struggling to keep all the characters straight. The second time went much more smoothly. Anyone who is still debating whether to watch it twice or not, I highly recommend it!

I wanted to see it again but never got too. At this point I'll probably just wait for the blu ray.

Most of you may not know this but Disney is releasing Star Wars: The Force Awakens for me on my birthday!!! April 5 is the day! Thank you Disney for a great birthday present.

Kidding aside it is being released on April 5 and so far I have seen a few covers and the Steelbook which I didn't care for the cover on it. I believe that is a BestBuy only release. Also there is a cover of BB8 and the standard movie poster version. Of course some of these may not be final but they are on the websites with those covers. Trish really liked the BB8 but I think I want the regular cover. It is my birthday so I should get to pick! So I'll probably pick the BB8 one. lol When it comes down to it I just want to watch the movie again so I really don't care that much what the cover is!
 May The Force Be With You.

I think I am leaning towards the Bestbuy version as well, since we don't have Target in Canada anymore. The Disney Store has an exclusive with Lithographs, I will have to go to one of our local ones to see if I could preorder it there, so if I can, I might go with that then.

I bought mine on digital the day the movie was released. I'm just waiting until the first to download it.

I don't think there is a Disney Store even in Columbus. I will have to look it up. Getting the exclusive would be cool.

The sooner the better but I'll wait for a Blu-ray that should have the digital with it. So X you will probably watch it 12 times before I get to see it again!

I got the Steelbook too because I like the packaging.  Going to get the Target one too.

I got the Walmart Version with the BB-8 Cover. I was thinking of the Steelbook version, but I needed to get some groceries as well, and did not want to make two stops. As well, I was worried if I got the Steelbook version, it might open the door to me wanting to get more of them... So I felt maybe best to steer myself away from it.

I watched the Movie last night, plus a majority of the Bonus features. The deleted scenes were ok, I thought the X-Wings taking off were cool, so not sure why that got the cut, as it was just a short little scene. The Snow Chase was cool as well, though must have got cut early on, as it looked like it needed some more work on the effects. Kylo in the Falcon was cool as well, but I can see why they dropped that, as it might have lessened the scene with Kylo and Han later.

I am getting the feeling this will not be the last release of this movie I will be buying.

I know what you mean, jedijeff and Rico. That Target one looks cool.
