Storyline

The new Star Wars film arrived on May 16 - so why not line up on the streets 6 weeks before? Hundreds of people in Hollywood did just that. Star Wait takes a look at the lives of some of these people waiting in line in front of the famous Mann's Chinese Theater. How do they get along with each other? How do they deal with the homeless people vying for sleeping room on the streets of Hollywood? How do they make sure no one spoils the new Star Wars movie for them? And of course, how do they go to the bathroom? Star Wait is broken up into 9 different episodes. Episodes include; who is hotter: Natalie Portman or Princess Leia? How does a Christian band get along with Star Wars fans at 2 in the morning? The day the tickets are sold, infighting among line members, and of course the final day leading up to the Hollywood 12:01am showing of "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones."

Nothing like Trekkies.
20 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK so I saw this DVD at Target for three bucks and thought well you couldn't even rent it at that price so I'd be a fool not to buy it. What is it? It's a bare bones look at the lives some people lived out while waiting in line for a movie. Now OK some folks will think Fanboy or Geek or Nerd and dismiss these people as fools for sleeping on the sidewalk along Hollywood Blvd. Not me, I find them fascinating. Fascinating in the same way I find Phish Phans or Baby Boomers living in converted school buses following the Grateful Dead around North America fascinating. I like people who are into their own thing and don't care who knows.

These are raw nerds in their native habitat doing the nerd things they'd be doing whether the camera was there or not. The film captures this. That the film doesn't go into the whole Star Wars fan scene all over the country might disappoint people who think the documentary "Trekkies" is high culture. The film is not about Star Wars it's about people who want to see Star Wars in a particular theater on opening day. And that's what the film delivers.
