Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
I agree with this. SW, as much as I love it (and I happen to be one of the people who like the prequels despite the fact that they're kind of crappy), is not science fiction, per se. It's a space opera that has no clue as to how science works.
That's kinda the case for most of sci-fi, however.
And that's my opinion.
