ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY
- This is the darkest of the Star Wars films. It makes The Empire Strikes Back look like Attack of the Clones. (and that is the ONLY time I will use those two films in the same sentence.
- I am very excited for the Cassian Andor solo series coming to Disney +. What a GREAT character!
- Felicity Jones is so terrific in this movie.
- I love K2SO.
- Every moment featuring Darth Vader works. Overtime.
- I had no issue with the CGI Tarkin or the CGI Leia, but I am a forgiving type.
- I was so surprised when I first saw the movie and thrilled again to note that A New Hope takes place immediately after this movie. That’s a clever connection – one of many in the film (though Dr. Evazan and Walrus Man were bridges too far).
- Jimmy Smits makes it back! I had actually forgotten that… perhaps we will see him on Disney + too?
- There is something really compelling about the grittiness of this movie.
- Churrit and Baze are great characters… are they gay characters? That would be fine by me.
- The scenes on Jedha before the ambush of the storm troopers by Saw Gurrera’s forces don’t make much sense. At all.
I really, really like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Every character works and every character has a great arc. The action is pretty stunning (Churrit’s first battle on Jedha, Vader on the Tantive IV). The chemistry among the characters is wonderful. K2SO is my favorite of all the new droid creations. There is very little that detracts from this fascinating prologue to A New Hope. Perhaps one downside is that Director Krennic is such a mustache twirling adversary and Ben Mendelson is a bit wasted. Other than that, I really enjoy this movie!
