    Mexicomeat,

    If you wish to 'virtually time travel', get to see how the initial movies - the original trilogy - were made and then walk into the digital world to sweep through the 3 prequel episodes to get the best experience of Star Wars Galaxy, the best option is to catch Star Wars in the order of the its release - 1977, 1980, 1983 & 1999, 2002, 2005. And then 2015.

    Episode VII is a sequel, so it should be the last to be watched in the series. It has got two more installements to come (Episodes VIII & IX).

    But Star Wars does tell a story about a Father, a Son & an Empire, and it obviously holds the mother of all twists, a twist that gave nightmares to many. Unfortunately if you had consulted even one website talking about the movie, you should now be exposed to this amazing twist. Assuming you are ready to catch the plot and see how its actually unfolding, then there is definitely an order to be watched which assures the suspense and simultaneously introduces several new characters and their bondings. This order should ensure the interest and could enhance the humour quotient in the series, while gaurding the mystery intact. The below arrangement is suggested by several Star Wars fans, that I recomend too :

    Episode IV: A New Hope (original trilogy)
    Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (original trilogy)
    Episode I: The Phantom Menace (prequel trilogy)
    Episode II: Attack of the Clones (prequel trilogy)
    Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (prequel trilogy)
    Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi (original trilogy)
    Episode VII: The Force Awakens (sequel trilogy)

    Foot note :

    Episode IV: A New Hope (1977)
    Luke, an young boy, teams up with certain valliant people to save Leia, the Princess of a distant Galaxy, from Darth Vader, an imperial commander from the Galactic Empire.

    Episode V: The Empire Strikes (1980)
    The Empire has chased the rebels but their leaders, including Luke are still on the run whom Darth Vader wants to capture.

    Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999)
    In a battle somewhere in the past, a young boy named Anakin rises, whom the wise beleive would be the one who would bring the balance to the Force, at the same time a dormant sect called the Sith resurrects.

    Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002)
    Teen Anakin is in love, but not aware of the oncomming danger, an army of clones to destroy his faithful house of Jedi.

    Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
    Young Anakin enters into the world of deception as he tries to embrace his family life, but the evil plans of the Senators & Chancellors extract something entirely different out of Anakin when he enters the Dark Side of the Force.

    Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi(1983)
    Death Star, built by the Empire, is a threat to the Galaxy which the rebels try to destroy, while Luke faces Darth Vader at the Dark Side of the Force.

    Episode VII: The Force Awakens(2015)
    Around some 30 years later, the First Order tries its hold over the Galactic Empire, and this time a new form of resistence rises.

    While I don't look much into a Star Wars flick like say a David Lynch/PTA movie, I really find it hard to overlook the plot holes surrounding "The Force awakens". The movie taps the right buttons, traverses the path that made the original trilogy such a huge hit but it misses the mark in widening the Star Wars Universe, in creating that one little opportunity to have an identity of its own . That's what the Star Wars franchise requires. A movie which retains the essence of the original but with its own novelty.Not an almost look alike film of the original with zero originality. Safe to say my understanding of the force has gone for a toss after watching this.

    EDIT : On a side note, a 'hors-recommendation' category, meaning a movie not for everyone : Hard to Be a God (Russian : Trudno byt' bogom).
    An amazing creative idea of a parallel universe stuck in time. Scientist land up there just to find that the age of the space is Medieval. Violent & Gruesome, I found the movie awesome, but still not recomended for everyone - I tell it to you Mr.GreyShirt, as we have shared few details about Middle Age music, maybe you will find this movie interesting.
    Sounds interesting. I will give it a watch.

    Boologam - kudos for the attempt !

    Tamil Movies with boxing as for as i remember
    • Kaavalkaaran
    • Kadhal parisu
    • Vetrimel Vetri. 1989
    • Badri (kick boxing)
    • Maan Karate
    this movie is diff from all these.

    Pros:
    • Jayam RAVI whole movie is on him, an excellent job.
    Debutante director (like guru is the sishyan bit spoon feeding)
    • Dialogues

    Cons:
    • bit Amateurish

    Result of the movie- can't guess, but whole theater enjoyed the show.

    Feel good movie, must be watched by parents of young children.

    The hyper active children will have you laughing out loud.

    Gets a little preachy towards the end, but still doesn't test the patience.

    watched inji iduppazhagi and 144 yesterday (same pinch ajay)

    both were horrible.

    if you look at the end credits of 144, you can see that the music director has used spanish orchestra and spent $$$$ on the music.... spanish orchestra for a low budget movie that has siva has the hero? obviously the producer has got his priorities wrong. he should spent $$$$ on fixing the weak story line instead.
