I am a shameless geek and I can tell you that for me and my peers taking time off or skipping work stopped after the first movie. That one let us down so much that we were in no hurry to see #2. This next one looks like it might be interesting but no one I know is taking any time off.
Ha! Time off for another SW film. Please! I like recluse took time off for the first film only to find that I'd wasted my time and money. SW is no longer worth it's weight in the geek world. Sad, so sad.
