I've just come from the Loews Georgetown, where I managed to collect reviews of "Episode III" from a few fans.
Matt Boyle, 28, thought the movie was "pretty good."
"The part where he becomes Darth Vader is worth the price of admission right there," he said, though he added that a lot of the movie is "fairly cheesy."
Brothers Ody and Erik Uy, both of Washington, D.C., were more effusive about "Sith." ("This was like the final piece of the puzzle," Erik explained.) Both said they'd see it again.
But the mother-daughter team of Shaun Murphy and Clare Murphy McGreevey were split. Mom dug it, but Clare didn't. "It didn't really do it for me," she said. "The moment where [Anakin] transforms happened too quickly. It wasn't believable to me."
For more fan reaction, check out our reader reviews. I'll also continue coercing opinions from people who clearly don't want to talk to me at theaters near you. Should I uncover any earth-shattering responses ("This is by far the finest film I've seen since 'House of Wax.'"), I'll report them here.
