Mic Hunter, 24, has been a fan since he was old enough to see his first "Star Wars" movie. He said "Clones" is the best one yet rating it an 11.5 on a 10-point scale.
Yoda seemed to be a hit with most audience members.
Ryan Moore, 18, saw "Star Wars" for the first time eight years ago with his older brother and said Yoda was a scene-stealer.
Michael Dees, 31, said the latest installment compares well with the original.
Dees said he watches the "Star Wars" movies two or three times a year and can't go three months without watching them again.
Dedric Booth, 31, said he has been a fan since he was 13. He rated the new movie a nine out of 10.
Seventeen-year-old Emily McMullen has been a "Star Wars" fan for two months. She said two friends made her watch it and now she likes it.
McMullen said she liked Yoda and the kissing scene.
The only complaints: 1) waiting for the movie to begin was hard; and 2) the running time may have been a little long.
