I don't know anything about Star Wars......I don't know even the first thing about it.....

but I think Harrison Ford is definitely one of the sexiest most attractive senior actors!!

Yeah, the new Star Wars publicity has raised his profile with the ladies of multiple age ranges.

oh, Harrison Ford was extremely well-known and admired before this most recent Star Wars sequel!

I've been aware of him for decades and eons. I've watched him thru the decades and in his later older years.

It's just that he has moved into his 70's being sexy and quite attractive.

(but as you say, people of all ages are maybe being re-introduced to him)

My wife and I went to see it back in the day, I just now said to her "we went to see star wars back in the day, right?" "I wouldn't want to go now, would you?" She said "huhu" and went back to watching her NCIS reruns.

I don't think 'loosening up' has anything to do with wanting to see Star Wars or a similar movie.

A person is either interested in that type of subject matter or not. I am not.

One can always learn new things....but I've gone a lifetime with zero interest in Star Wars and StarTrek shows/movies and everything surrounding them. And I don't want to have an 'inner kid'.

As for me, saw the original in a theater and enjoyed it. For some reason never did see the rest of the "trilogy." Will have to do so one of these days.

I TRIED to see the original Star Wars...twice. I fell asleep both times!


This past week at work has been Star Wars everything! The trilogy DVDs have been flying out the door, all the doodads and dohickeys associated with it also. One of my customers was telling me he was going to the movie and how excited he was about it and bought a bunch of SW 'stuff'.

I lasted longer than 10 minutes...twice!...but that's funny. I thought I was the only person that ever happened to! lol But that's why I decided that me, going to the movies, was a total waste of money and I haven't been in a movie theater since Jan. 1983! Last movie I 'tried' to watch in a theater was Robin Williams in Tootsie.

Dustin Hoffman played "Tootsie." Robin would've been good, though, I bet, thinking of his Mrs. Doubtfire.

ha, I'm a fan, for sure. And my parents, in their 70s, just told me they're rewatching the original trilogy this week in anticipation of seeing VII when the crowds die back a bit.
