  1. Managed to remember my password and e-mail after like 5 tries to log in to see what the reactions were to this movie Damn this forum is still laggy as fuck
  2. I had a feeling TROS might implode after the Christmas rush. Curious how this second weekend plays out.
  3. Phase 3 was a legendary run of quality films and audiences were gobbling it up like it was going out of style. IW blowing the roof off of AOU was a foregone conclusion.
