First Rogue One trailer dropped just now. I guess it aired on Good Morning America, but it already made it's way all over the internet.

Personally I think it looks great. Looks like the kind of Star Wars movie I always wanted to see. People are gonna criticize the fact that it takes place during the OT, but I dont really care. Seems like it has a different tone than Episode VII had. Less upbeat, I guess? Cant really put my finger on the word, but this definitely stands out. Maybe these filler standalone films Disney plans to release between Episodes are going to wind up being way better than the actual Episodes.

I'm hype I guess.

The good news is that they're going to milk this franchise until every bit of the original appeal is gone, and then there will be no more star wars nerds. I thought the prequel trilogy would do it, but the fandom genocide was incomplete.

Brick seems to be a very divisive movie. Same with Looper. I haven't seen Looper, but Brick, I absolutely hated. I couldn't get invested in it when the characters spoke so ridiculously far out of their time to the point of unintentional comedy, with no real justification other than LOL NOIR, that it left the movie feeling unbelievably cheap, and kind of annoying. I also thought it was overly long, with maybe about 2 real memorable characters through its fairly extensive cast, despite their obvious effort to make every character a memorable noir character.

Mostly, I just don't want to hear teenage characters talk like they're in the school play version of The Man With The Golden Arm when there's literally no justification for it. One of the very few movies I felt I really just couldn't suspend my disbelief to justify what was going on. I personally don't think it worked as a tribute to the genre, or stood on its own very well.

But I have friends that absolutely swear by the movie, and I've talked to more people who have enjoyed it than didn't. It just really wasn't for me, at all. Noir films are something I legitimately enjoy, and Brick just felt like a poor, misguided imitation. I'm not against filmmakers doing something different or new with the genre, but I don't believe Brick was the way to go about it. That could just be me though.

As for Rogue One, I think it looks fine, and I like that it's going for a different tone than TFA did. But now knowing that it's from the guy that directed Brick, I'm just really hoping he's worked out his stylistic beefs through Brick and has some much better writers on board. I really hope that Rogue One doesn't do to war films what Brick did to noir.

I think I mostly liked Brick but I wouldn't call it anything more than a heavily stylized, fluffed up popcorn flick. I could understand why not liking the overblown Noir style would completely ruin the movie because that's all it really has going for it.

Looper on the other hand, I thought it was complete trash and I really don't understand how it got so much praise. Like, it seriously makes me feel like I'm going insane and I feel like thousands of random movie critics and armchair film-buffs are conspiring on an elaborate inside joke by calling it a good and intelligent sci-fi film. The "science" is total bullshit, the plot twist is so obvious you know what it's going to be within the first minute of the film, it's filmed with pointless drama that goes nowhere, the soundtrack is completely flaccid, and Joseph Gordon Levitt looks like a fish-mutant with that horrible burce willis mask. It's straight-up one of the worst movies I've ever seen and the amount of "top ten" lists that movie made it onto makes me feel like I've been taking crazy pills.

Not make it? Focus on the two movies you have coming down the pipe to complete the trilogy. Then branch out the franchise afterwards, like making kid cartoons, video games, and stand alone star wars projects that aren't burden with having to fill in gaps of the main movies. I guess that's what I would do instead of making filler movies for dummies to chew on in between the main movies.

I don't know, this movie already looks better than episode 7. I don't know why you think waiting like 5 years to make expanded universe movies will magically increase the quality. It's not like all the same people are working on all the movies and everyone is scrambling to rush it out the gate in time. They spent as much time producing this movie as people spend producing any other movie.

I, for one, am just glad to see a Star Wars movie with no Jedi and no force stuff. I've always been more into the blasters and X-Wing/Tie-Fighter space battles side of Star Wars and Han Solo and Boba Fett type characters than the ancient orders and prophecies and space magic and lightsaber side.

Saturation of a product. You get too much star wars then in becomes less exciting when the next movie comes out. I'm not saying they shouldn't try new stuff, I just think it's too early for them to try.

That's true for some things, video games especially. But I don't think that will be the case with this movie. Now, that planned Han Solo movie....yeah there's no good reason to make that movie. I guess I'm just biased here because this movie looks like it's going to focus on a side of the Star Wars universe I've always wanted to explore more. I hope they don't Assassin's Creed this franchise, but I understand why Disney's approach worries some people.

Maybe they should have waited. Maybe they should have put these projects on Netflix or something like how Marvel has been doing. Still this movie looks neat and I do look forward to the Boba Fett movie.

Rewatch the scene when then Starkiller cannon destroys Coruscant. Pay attention to the order of events; Finn hears and reacts to the "millions of voices crying out in terror" before anyone else around him even knows what's happening.

Character details released
http://www.ew.com/gallery/star-wars-rogue-one-characters/2642973_rogue-one-rundown
>Jyn Erso (played by: Felicity Jones)
A streetwise delinquent who has been on her own since 15, she has fighting skills and a knowledge of the galactic underworld that the Rebel Alliance desperately needs. “She’s got a checkered past,” says Lucasfilm president and Rogue One producer Kathleen Kennedy. “She has been detained [by the Rebellion] and is being given an opportunity to be useful. And by being useful, it may commute her sentence… She’s a real survivor. She becomes a kind of Joan of Arc in the story.”

>Galen Erso (played by: Mads Mikkelsen)
Jyn’s estranged father is like the galactic version of nuclear pioneer J. Robert Oppenheimer, with doomsday knowledge that is sought by both the Empire and the Rebellion. “He’s one of those people that has insight into you know specific aspects of just how the universe works,” says Hart. Where has Galen been, if Jyn has been on her own for years? “The circumstances of how the family got to the state that it’s in is something that we probably don’t want to share right now,” Hart says. (Lucasfilm isn't revealing his image yet, so this is file picture. Don't worry -- the button-down isn't retro galactic fashion.)

>Captain Cassian Andor (played by: Diego Luna)
Andor is a by-the-book Rebel intelligence officer, brought in to steady the volatile Erso, but he’s no square. He’s committed, steady, and practical, and has seen more than his share of combat. “He conveys a fair amount of experience and the reality of what it’s like to do this every day, to try to figure out how to resist the Empire effectively and intelligently,” says Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s chief of story development. “It’s not easy.”

>Chirrut Imwe (played by: Donnie Yen)
Pronounced chi-RUT, he’s no Jedi, but he’s devoted to their ways and has used his spirituality to overcome his blindness and become a formidable warrior. “Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk,” says Kennedy. “He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.” He maintains that belief even though the Jedi are no longer there to protect the galaxy. As director Gareth Edwards puts it: "This idea that magical beings are going to come and save us is going away, and it’s up to normal, everyday people to take a stand to stop evil from dominating the world.”

>Baze Malbus (played by: Jiang Wen)
Heavily armored, Baze prefers a blaster to hokey religions and ancient weapons, but he is devoted to protecting his friend Chirrut at all costs. “He understands Chirrut’s spiritual centeredness, but he doesn’t necessarily support it,” Kennedy says. Baze goes along with this Force business because “it’s what his friend deeply believes,” she adds. Think of them as a little like the galactic version of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.

>Bodhi Rook (played by: Riz Ahmed)
Bodhi is this Rebel squad’s lead pilot. He tends to be hot-headed, but any abrasiveness is overshadowed by his skills in the air — and the void of space. “He flies a lot of cargo, one of his key jobs,” Kennedy says. “And he tends to be a little tense, a little volatile, but everybody in the group really relies on his technical skills.”

>K-2SO (played by: Alan Tudyk)
This towering, powerful security droid is described by Edwards as “the antithesis of C-3PO.” In other words, he’s tough, confident, not especially interested in "human/cyborg relations," and the complete opposite of a neurotic fussbudget. “Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca's personality in a droid’s body,” Edwards says. “He doesn’t give a s--- about what you think. He doesn't fully check himself before he says things and does things. He just speaks the truth.” Like Jyn, he’s also seeking a bit of redemption for past wrongs. Droids, too, can have regret.

>Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn)
On the opposing side, this villain is an ambitious Imperial apparatchik who intends to use his squad of Deathtroopers to pulverize the Rebel uprising and ascend into the Emperor’s graces – while hopefully avoiding the wrath of his enforcer, Darth Vader. “The bad guy is a lot more terrifying when he’s really smart, and really effective,” says Knoll. “There is a lot of palace intrigue going on in the Empire, with people conspiring to move up the ranks and sabotaging each other. There’s not a lot of loyalty there.”

>Saw Gerrera (played by: Forest Whitaker)

This character has a past that Star Wars completists will recognize immediately when they see his name, even if he looks very different than the way they've seen him before. (He even looks different from when we saw him in the teaser trailer.) There's so much to say about this character, we’re going to break out a separate on him and his history in The Clone Wars. [ http://www.ew.com/article/2016/06/22/star-wars-rogue-one-forest-whitaker-character ] for a deeper exploration of this shadowy figure...
_______

Meet the Rebel fighter who’s so extreme that the other good guys aren’t sure if he really is one. Forest Whitaker’s character has been one of the more closely held secrets of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but Lucasfilm is ready now to make his identity official: this shadowy freedom-fighter is Saw Gerrera, a figure with a surprisingly deep background in galactic history. The warrior — seen in the Rogue One trailer asking, “If you continue to fight, what will you become?” — was actually first seen in season 5 of The Clone Wars animated series, when he was a young man on the planet Onderon, unleashing guerilla combat on the droid army of Separatists who took over his world.

Along with his sister, Steela, he fought alongside Darth Vader — back when the Sith lord was just an impetuous young Jedi named Anakin Skywalker. In the episode A War on Two Fronts, which aired in October 2012, Saw and Steela were part of an insurgent group being unofficially trained by Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the padawan Ahsoka Tano. While it wouldn’t be right to spoil what happens to their characters in that story arc, which can be caught up with now on Netflix, suffice to say that Saw pays a steep cost for his resistance, and remains mistrustful of any authority except his own for the rest of his days. There never will be a peacetime for him.

“Consider him kind of a battered veteran who leads a band of Rebel extremists,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy tells EW. “He’s on the fringe of the Rebel Alliance. Even [they] are a little concerned about him. One reason we saved his reveal until now, in addition to him having a deeper backstory than the other new characters, is that Saw is an ally to the Rebel squad in Rogue One, but he’s not really one of them. He’s off on his own,” Kennedy says.

In Claudia Gray’s recent Leia-centric novel Star Wars: Bloodline, set approximately midway between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the princess-turned-politician is confronted by a rival who challenges her on the “terrorist tactics of the Rebel Alliance,” specifically citing “the campaigns of Saw Gerrera’s Partisans.” For Rogue One, they needed a character on the borderline, someone who would represent the extreme end of the fight against the Emperor. Producer John Knoll’s idea was to show how the Death Star is a threat that pulls the disparate Rebel factions into a place of unity. The Lucasfilm story group plucked Saw Gerrera from Clone Wars history as a good candidate for a radical. “The Death Star is the event that sort of pulls everybody into a place of unity, and prior to that it’s a little bit more divided. Who are at the different ends of that spectrum?” says Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s head of story development. It was also a way to incorporate a character created by George Lucas, who has stepped back from Star Wars storytelling after selling Lucasfilm to Disney, but was deeply involved in The Clone Wars series with executive producer Dave Filoni (now overseeing the animated Rebels show). Hart and fellow story group member Pablo Hidalgo were among those knew some of the as-yet-unseen character storylines that Lucas had in mind, and Saw’s fit right in with what they needed for Rogue One. For more on the character, Hidalgo appears on today’s episode of The Star Wars Show to offer some new insights into his history. https://youtu.be/Filn82qphCA

About two years ago some brazilian monkeypig spent the better part of two days arguing that the prequels were better than the originals without ever once actually saying how or why. It's so weird to see the ways different people react to Star Wars.

well, it looks like Disney is turning Star Wars into a new franchise for their key demo...13 year old girls. In before there's some lame tween sitcom on the Disney channel, "Sith with a blog", or something like that.

He spent his early career post-Return of The Jedi trying to find a "balance point" between light and dark, and repeatedly went too far to the dark side before finally accepting that you can't walk the link without falling. Which Jedi had known for millenia and several surviving Jedi over the years tried to beat into Luke's thick head, but he was convinced he was special.

The kicker is that several generations later an ancestor of his did finally manage to find the perfect balance and use the dark side without succumbing to it. Then Disney burned the EU to the ground so we'll never know what comes of that.

What mattered to me is that it still felt like Star Wars, almost moreso than ep I-III. Seeing Star Wars done with modern technology was pretty awesome.

I think having the style of the Star Wars anthology films be stylistically different from
the main films is a good choice to appeal to a newer audience and fans who felt disenchanted with the prequel trilogy and The Force Awakens.

When Force Awakens came out, I was like 'meh'. I grew up on Star Wars, and I was a star wars kid in school when it was not really fucking cool to be a star wars kid in school (though in high school a few cute babes were in our star wars 'clique'). I tell you this so you know I'm a fan when I say I was 'meh' at the force awakens when i saw the trailer. When Han was like 'Chewie, we're home' in the trailer I literally cringed. But I finally saw the movie and it was fucking awesome. I loved it. Fucking loved it and have seen it 4 more times. It has it's faults but idgaf it still worked.

So that all being said, when I saw the teaser for this a few months ago (super bowl maybe?) it didn't seem that interesting. A cash grab it seemed, the nxt to star wars' wwe. After seeing this new full trailer, I gotta admit it seems pretty hype. The ship coming out the shadow was cool as fuck, and other things I could spoiler text but bottom line is I think this one actually looks pretty slick now. Well, the ships/vehicles/etc all looked really cool. The actors IDK. The girl is cute as fuck, kinda takes me out of it until I get over it.

Star Wars is ok as the original movies, but I feel like the more the universe is fleshed out, the less I like it.

Originally I think I just didn't like the prequels, but even as the productions get better now, I'm still not thrilled. The morality is simple in the originals, and it works. But the longer you linger in that world the sillier it seems... And the more ridiculous motivations feel.

I don't care one way or another at this point because it's easy enough not to watch something. But I really feel like Disney is going to run this property into the ground with this one-film-a-year production schedule. I don't think Star Wars is an interesting enough universe to support it.

I'm guessing at the end of 6 years, even hardcore fanboys will be begging Disney to stop, not fully knowing why they're doing it. It will be too late to stop the train wreck though, there will already be 4 more in preproduction, and a streaming only tv serious... And it won't matter how well they're made, there just won't be enough to work with.

>the more the universe is fleshed out, the less I like it.

Same... Kinda.... i mean i think the biggest issue is they kind of missed why the first three star wars movies were as good as they were. or atleast why the first movie was soo good. It was the classic good vs evil tale, it was fucking hippies overthrowing the totaltarian government, Like Han solo basically stealing the millennium falcon from jabba was like a hippie borrowing someones car with no intention to return it, jedis are all spirituality and shit and the rebels were just anti government. and darth vader and shit was the government who wanted to rule the universe.

That is what made the first series of star wars movies so good, but it became this kid friendly mess by the third movie with ewoks and so on, where it kind of just lost its edge because well $$$$$$$ and became like this surface level shit where "oh look at the cool graphix and look at the ships.

>Originally I think I just didn't like the prequels

Same, but you know what? i really like the third one now... and i say that because its politics man, the prequels are mostly talking but its all about politics, it was a mess with the anakin thing, he shouldve been focused on less in the first two movies but they tried to make it so people have somoene to connect too when they shouldve just focused on the adults until anakin became an adult.
they began pandering too much to children and thats where the series falls to bits.

Star wars SHOULD BE an adult movie for adults with socio political themes and a commentary on war, not a oh hey heres this character, you can buy the toy for $15 hehe.

I watched the force awakens and im just like dude, come on, dude.... its lost its soul for-real and if disney thinks they can trick me into this shit they are dead wrong.


But with all that being said, rouge one actually is a pretty good idea and i will probably see it, but ill wait for the 8th star wars to hit the pirate bay before i see it, not super keen on the re-hash of movies that still hold up in all aspects today.

One of my favorite parts of Star Wars growing up in the 90s was the huge Expanded Universe.

I was 12 when Shadows of the Empire was a successful (fantastic) book and N64 game. Just a little before the original trilogy got rereleased.
This movie at first glance looks like one of those Expanded Universe books about an X-wing or tai fighter pilot. I'm sure there's some old "Rogue" EU stuff out there.
But now...everything is new. Will we see some EU novels outshine the films again? I hope so. But I haven't even seen the Force Awakens yet lol, or have felt inspired to read the *official* Expanded Universe yet... Only a half dozen or so books out right now I think, a good time to start.
Interesting there's another movie already (even though it is Disney now, what do you expect), I like how it's looking to be more like an EU kind of thing (like going back to all those X-Wing series books of the 90s) rather than going straight to the next "episode".

And we don't know how many novels, video games, mini-series, will come from just this. Will it be more in the spirit of just pure Expanded Universe, a solid licensed film, or will this have a unique storyline to Episode 8 and other projects?

I probably have 50+ old Expanded Universe books on my iPad...but why bother now? Might as well get into the latest canon material. If ever I get around to seeing and enjoying Episode VII

Yeah it was a rehash. When it first came out everyone was like OMG OMG ITS SO GOOD OMG OMG. then when the screener got released i watched it was like wtf, george lucas just remastered episode 4 again except instead of just changing minor details he just kept the same script and re-filmed it, then it was like oh it was jj abrahams and disney and then it was clear how much of a cash grab episode 7 really was.

but to be honest im kind of interested in rogue one, not "im going to go to the cinema to see it" though.

I enjoyed episode 7 for the most part but anyone who doesn't see that it's a retelling of Episode 4 is kidding themselves. I'm hoping they take it in a different direction from here though, if Episodes 8 and 9 turn out to just be rehashes too I'll be pissed. but is anyone pretending that these aren't cash grabs? It's as blatant as making The Hobbit into a trilogy.

I'm a lot more hyped for Rogue One than Episode 7 though, enough to shell out for an imax ticket. I loved Monsters and Godzilla and can't wait to see what he does with Star Wars, at the very least that scene with the AT-AT's should be worth it, I always loved those. plus the trailer promised space samurai vs storm troopers.

Wasn't episode 1 as much of a rehash as episode 7? Not to single you out, but everyone complaining because it was a rehash. Yes it was a rehash, but no more than history rehashes itself, hence the quote about those who don;t learn history being doomed to repeat it. I always thought Star Wars was like those Wheel Of Time books, where the characters change but the circumstances always stay the same because of some cosmic cycle that nobody knows how to break.

Rouge one was orginally a grim dark star wars where the cast was brutually and relentlessly hunted down by vader, killing them one at a time

Our friends at disney disliked how dark the movie became, George lucas, from conception, intended star wars to be a family film where everyone can be taken on an adventure of fantasy and science.
It was scaled back heavily, especially the use of darth vader, just as the force awakens scaled back luke and han solo.

Because of this we get a lighter version of an almost dark fantasy.
The entire cast was supposed to be killed "rouge one" is destroyed before a new hope and the death star plans never make it ti the rebels (yet)

No matter how progressive you think this film is, the pemise of the film was "vader is going to find and kill you"
So sad, still excited to see it, should be better than the force awakens

also, FUCK WHITE PEOPLE! They need to bred out of existence.

Sadly, the "need" to pander to Chinese audiences is only just beginning. Not just Star Wars either.
Just in the last year I've seen several films that either go to China for no reason (Now You See Me 2) or have entire segments filmed just for Chinese releases (Iron Man 3 and both Avengers).
Plus, they are buying up studios like Lions Gate and Legendary.
If we aren't careful, all movies will be commie propaganda.

China has purchased 6 major studios and they have crazy strict censorship.
No foul language, No blood, gore or fucking even skeletons.
No anti-communism. Fuck, even in XMen Apocalypse they edited "Vietnam" from a teacher talking about the war to "the war."

Meh, at least the originals will always be there.

Fucking why? There aren't enough actors in the world? Those people are connected to many other films and ruin the immersion of Star Wars.

The franchise will be dead soon. Progressive shitters may watch it, if it doesn't get in the way of their protesting and other faggotry, but the general audience would probably shy away from it.

The non-libshit masses are "woke" now. People are boycotting (((Hollywood))) and (((Cultural Marxism))), and especially (((feminism))). If this was released a few years ago, it will sell tickets. Now? They'll probably just break even, or slightly become profitable.

It's going to be bad. There's going to be some bullshit about people not watching it being (((muh soggy knees))), but no one would care. It will be one of the most open and blatant rejection of (((feminism))) and (((progressivism))). It will be felt by (((feminists))) and it will damage them, much like how Mad Max: the Feminist Agenda wasn't as successful as they were hoping. Despite all the shilling and shaming done by (((MSM))) and the (((awards))) it got, it only made 378M worldwide, with only 125M in the US. There are rumors of a sequel, despite the lackluster showing of Fury Road, but it was hinted to distance itself from Fury Road and make it more male-centric (just as the previous Mad Max movies were).

(((Feminism))) is dying, and (((Rogue One))) might just get it closer to death's door.

That's actually a fair point. I would prefer if they had cast unknowns in these parts. It is pretty distracting to have big hollywood folk taking up these rolls.

I think it's less that and more Disney pandering to foreign investors/markets despite Star Wars being globally well received already.

Just got back from my local theater's pre-release screening. Absolutely loved it. Overall, a much more faithful Star Wars movie (and better science fiction in general) than TFA. There are a few head-scratching moments and at least one groaner where Vader is like "Don't choke on your aspirations", oh my god that was unnecessary but the characters, music, special effects... just a solid, satisfying movie.

Rogue One is the true prequel. TFA is more like an awkward reunion in comparison.

Loved it, my only complaint is the CGing to put old/dead actors in the movie. It never looks right to me, and to top it off there are shots of those characters from the back which get the message to the viewer perfectly without having them shucking and jiving in front of the camera until they look like a Shrek villain.

I really liked how they freed themselves from the normal star wars conventions as far as film making goes, can't wait to see how creative they get with the "stories" line of movies.

i liked how in this film they didn't start out with the title and famous scrolling text, they just started the story immediately. then later they were like "ROGUE ONE!" but still didnt do the scrolling text

this made it absocrystofuckinglutely clear that it was a side story and not the next installation. thought it was a good move.

I missed lightsabers and the force but I know that it was better without them.

Solid movie, feels for the most part like someone wrote a WWII movie and then transposed it to the Star Wars universe. Set design, customes and creating the hustle and bustle of these spaces was great. Looks so much like the original trilogy it's ridiculous.

It's sort of like the Captain America: Winter Soldier of the Star Wars franchise. It's pretty brutal, lots of death.

This guy co wrote the movie. There's no doubt anymore, they're using these as active, conscious political propaganda.

I will never understand why people are so triggered by brown people and women in their Star Wars. If Empire Strikes Back came out now they'd be all pissed off about Lando. "So forced!"

And yeah, Nazis were bad. Not sure why that's some sort of controversial "political propaganda" unless you're a fan. I don't think he's correct that the Empire is a "white supremacist" organization per se but they've clearly always been space-Nazis since the OT. It's not exactly subtle.

Rogue One deviates from the typical Star Wars movie you're used to watching. It tried something new by setting a different tone for a Star Wars movie, and it succeeded.

The Star Wars version of white supremacy is "human" (or whatever the human looking characters like Han and Luke are called) supremacy.

But you know internet white supremacists. They get triggered arguably more than the "SJW"s they hate so much. Maybe people should start calling them Social Injustice Warriors, since theyre the same damn thing, just on the other side of the coin.

It's certainly a better movie than Episode 7 or any of the prequels by a long shot. A good war movie about a band of misfits embarking on a suicide mission. And Donnie Yen beats the shit out of Stormtroopers with a stick. Like any ensemble movie, some characters arent as fleshed out as they could be. Solid 8/10 action movie.

>Do you legitimately feel this movie is something that would be remembered beyond a few months if it wasn't Star Wars.
Well if it wasn't Star Wars then the plot wouldn't make much sense because the audience would have no context for half of what's going on. It will certainly be remembered as one of the best in the franchise.
Would you call Saving Private Ryan or Black Hawk Down "bland and soulless"?

I've seen enough reviews and footage to get the gist of it. You don't always have to see a movie to know it's going to be bad. I'll admit some trailers are deceiving, but that's not the case for this movie.

Seeing a bad movie only allows them to continue making bad movies. The only way execs are going to know what to fund is if we vote with our wallets.

The major plot points can easily be replaced with anything else. Nothing about this movie stands out to me.

The prequels and even Ep.7 had more interesting and memorable characters. And in an ensemble movie, the characters better be interesting.

I was tricked with this argument and saw Sausage Party... never again. Fuck that movie was worse than Zoolander 2.

Anyway.

Darth Maul, Jar Jar Binks, rather you like them or not, are memorable.

Even that brief encounter with General Grevous is probably more memorable than any fight in Rogue One.

But. I'm sure it's a fine movie. I'm not saying it shouldnt exist. But for someone like me, who is more into the light adventure side of Star Wars, this looks bland and dreary.

I'm just over the serious and gritty tone that EVERY action movie has now because of The Dark Knight.

Thanks, Nolan.

But you don't know the entire fucking plot. You just know that the main story concerns a team of "misfits" for lack of a better word who embark on a suicide run for the Death Star plans. There's a lot of movie around that premise that maybe you'd actually enjoy.

>Darth Maul, Jar Jar Binks, rather you like them or not, are memorable.
Saw Gerrera, Chirrut Imwe, and K-2SO are also memorable.

>Even that brief encounter with General Grevous is probably more memorable than any fight in Rogue One.
Somebody didnt see the last scene of Rogue One with Darth Vader.

And this movie is no more "gritty" than Episode V was. And people need to stop using "gritty" and "grimdark" it's an overused complaint and it barely has any meaning anymore. Nearly at the point where people whine if anything is more serious than Batman (1966)

Nah, I know most of the big stuff that happens in between as well. comic relief droid, father daughter relationship that ends with a pointless death, spiritual stick monk who has 1 good scene, fan service, etc I'd say I've already spoiled myself on 70% of the movie.

>Saw Gerrera, Chirrut Imwe, and K-2SO

Hm, yeah. These characters are more aesthetically interesting than Ep. 7. But I just don't think they'll make as much of an impact as Darth Maul or one any of Lucas's characters.

>And this movie is no more "gritty" than Episode V was. And people need to stop using "gritty" and "grimdark"

I don't know. Ep. 7 has plenty of light and humorous parts. Han Solo's ship scene with the bounty hunters, Finn, BB8, etc.

All Rogue One seems to have is the comic relief droid. Seems very serious.

And I'm not saying movies can't be serious.

But goooosh, can they at least create a world that a kid could fantasize being in.

Rogue One's world is so colorless... and depressing.. Not a world I want to escape to.

Saw this last night, not sure what to make of it. I didn't hate it, but it felt weird. Like Composite Star Wars. There were Star Wars-y things in the movie that made me feel warm and fuzzy inside, but then there were weird things like space Arabs accosting people on notTatooine, Stormtroopers driving through Space Baghdad in a Panzer, and classic Star Wars themes being played out of key a third of the time for some reason. That being said, I felt the story wrapped up about as well as I could have hoped for and Donnie Yen's blind Jedi monk is a fucking awesome character, I never really got emotionally connected to Female Luke and Ambiguously French and/or Spanish Han Solo. though. Alan Tudyk's C-3PO impression was pretty good, though. No text crawl at the beginning was bullshit, though. I know why they did it, because "it's not a mainline Star Wars movie", but that's still bullshit. The video games all had the text crawl, put the damn text crawl in a Star Wars movie.

Complaining guy here. Saw it and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

I think it had all the right ingredients, way better ingredients than ep. 7. But I still found myself unengaged. 30% of the movie was really good but the other 70% I almost fell asleep.

When Vader was on screen, the movie became A LOT more interesting.[%]

Some parts felt a little sloppily put together, I know Disney made them do some reshoots, not sure if that's why.

I want to like it better than Force Awakens, but I think it just didn't hit the right notes.

I think this will be the least rewatchable one out of the movies so far.

But the Han Solo standalone is shaping up to be ehh.

The pun wasn't bad, Vaders always been a snarky bitch.

But I agree, the dialogue in Rogue One was pretty damn bland and borderline hokey at times. The speech that whatsherface made in the rebel base and all the subsequent dialogue from the extras and various folk around that table nearly ruined the entire movie for me. I kept feeling like parts of the movie were obvious reshoots and that's not a feeling I normally get. Also wtf was up with the rebel faction that were all middle eastern terrorists?

I honestly think I had more fun watching episode 3...

Rogue One isn't bad, it's just not outstanding IMO. It was littered with so much fanservice that it felt more like a fan film than anything else or a really long episode of Rebels. I never really got the war movie vibe from it either. All the hope speeches and cameos kept pulling me out of that kind of vibe. There was plenty of action but it would always come to an odd conclusion somehow and the momentum of the movie would shift 90 degrees and go off on another world building exercise. I felt like it moved way too quickly at the beginning too, they dropped like 6 planets on us in less than 30 minutes of screen time.

The two CGI characters other than the robot were shockingly impressive though. I had a friend who didn't even notice that the main evil cgi character wasn't even real. The other cgi character was a little odd looking and less convincing but still impressive none the less. Just oddly timed considering recent events. They are really triggering people's uncanny valley sensors too, I can only imagine in a couple years what kind of tasteless but miraculous shit they'll try to pull once the rest of the original cast eventually dies off.

Also, I am positive they recycled some old footage from A New Hope. I'll have to wait till dvd rips start hitting youtube to confirm, but all of Red Leader's scenes were just cleaned up clips from the original that they spliced in.

I wasn't a huge fan of the score either. That too felt really fan filmy at points.

The main bad dude with the white cape was a good actor, Forrest Whitaker was ok, though he ended up being like some crazed homeless pseudo-vader instead of the hardened war veteran from the trailers. I really enjoyed whoever did the voice for the evil cgi character as well, it was a pretty fucking spot on impression and a good performance to boot. Donnie Yen could have used some better directing and a couple more takes for his scenes. Machine gun guy probably had the best performance of the main crew but he had very few lines. The other three were pretty forgettable and hella underdeveloped though. Robot was fine but fairly overhyped because of this post-Groot society we live in.

I enjoyed all the references and fan service but make that a great movie it does not. All in all I'd say my reaction to the movie was lukewarm at best.

Got back from seeing it tonight. it was good but I did think that the characters weren't as developed and wasn't that into them other than Chirrut, Bodhi (though that's more cause I like Riz Ahmed) and K-2SO. The CGI imposed characters were also a bit much as well and it especially felt weird seeing Princess Leia at the end after Carrie Fisher had just passed away. A takeaway from this film I liked was how the tone felt different than the main series of focusing more on military sci-fi elements and the war between the Imperial Empire and Rebel Alliance although I think the musical score should have been darker especially given the space battles and ships being destroyed and all. I wouldn't mind seeing an Anthology film from the Imperial Empire perspective.

Lando would not be an issue his character fits in fine dude. But any female imperials in 5 would of been terrible. And any minority imperials in 5 would be equally terrible. It would of pretty much ruined Star Wars... By making the Empire not scary enough.

>But any female imperials in 5 would of been terrible. And any minority imperials in 5 would be equally terrible. It would of pretty much ruined Star Wars... By making the Empire not scary enough.

.....What? Everybody in 5 was a white dude because George Lucas apparently didn't know any black people at the time, it was the 70s and that's how the movie turned out. Yes, the Empire was clearly Nazis, so I guess they intentionally cast the whitest white people for that, maybe, but.... Shit dude, what was your point again? What does that have to do with "forced diversity" in Star Wars?

My point is that there are always "certain" people who get very upset if they're ever called racist but still always manage to bitch and moan about "forced diversity" anytime there's a minority or female lead in AAA cinema, as if that's somehow illegitimate by trying to appeal to an audience that's not explicitly white people. And yes, the dipshits who flipped out about Finn in TFA would have bitched about Lando regardless of his character being legitimate, because Finn was legitimate too and they screamed bloody murder as soon as his head popped up in the trailer.

If you wanna rag on the new Star Wars for being derivative or because you don't like the characters or story or the direction Disney is taking the franchise, that's fine. But all this "they're shoehorning women and brown people into my Star Wars OH NO" is just ridiculous. It's not "forced diversity", it's the movie they wanted to make with the cast they wanted to make. The people who get triggered by a black protagonist simply because he's black and he somehow "doesn't belong" are racist. What other reason could you possibly have?

No dude, thats actuallly by design. Lucas himself has even stated thats a part of his vision to make the Empire seem more ominous by suggesting there is very little diversity at the top of it. Its really damn hard to land a job on the Death Star. And even harder if you happen to be black.

You do realize there were evil organizations that were made up with other races other than white people in history, right? Yeah Nazi's were probably what they were originally based on but it's more believable that they include more in their ranks besides just white guys, seeing as there is entire galaxy of creatures. So sprinkling in some brown and blacks in the Empire doesn't ruin their evilness levels. If just having minorities in star wars somehow ruins the movie for you, then that says less about the movie and more about how shitty a person you may be.

Stormtroopers are from WW1. The Nazis were WW2. Do you have any idea what a storm trooper is?

That being said, the Star Wars storm troopers are totally stupid. Real storm troopers worked in small groups, wielding tons of grenades and machine guns, and they were extremely dangerous in hand-to-hand combat. One storm trooper, Rommell, killed hundreds of people as well as captured thousands of enemies. Storm troopers used surprise and flanking tactics constantly, as well as intense scouting tactics. Rommel, himself, once killed 5 people while alone, 3 of them via melee.

Id support the Empire over the Republic any day. The Empire represents order. The republic represents 'freedom' (chaos). Unity is a powerful thing.

But also, Rogue One was boring. Probably the most boring Star Wars movie in the series.
Forest Whitaker had zero significance in the movie even though he's hyped up to be so important. Jyn Erso's daddy also has zero significance even as we saw Jyn crying over his corpse. The Rebels as a whole had almost zero significance to the story, as they first rope in Jyn one minute and then as soon as they see the Death Star in action they're like, 'REBELLION OVER! WHY DID WE THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA!? WE HAVE NO REASON TO KEEP FIGHTING.' And Jyn, who just a minute ago was like, 'Yeah I don't give a fuck if the empire wins. I just won't look up.' Is suddenly like, 'Have hope, everyone! We're rebels! I care about this so much because my dad just told me he cares about it!'
And then there's all these totally random people nobody cares about like Donnie Yen blindly beating up people who both outnumber him and are armed with guns they never try to use against him and his stick. And he won't fucking stop saying 'I am the force and the force is me' or whatever, some weird mantra that no other force user has ever done. Donnie Yen and the Assassin Bot stole the show, yet their characters were nothing significant. This whole movie was a total mess. The only thing worthwhile about the movie was the Empire. Episode 7, probably the greatest Star Wars movie, totally fucked up their new antagonist organization, the First Order. It's a joke of an empire seemingly run by literal children like Kylo and Hux, who both seem to be in their 20's or early 30's while life-long veterans in their 60's are working little jobs at desks, as if empires somehow don't take age and experience into account when assigning roles. But as I was saying, the empire was the best part of Rogue One, and watching Vader slay people through skill of force was a lot of fun, which keeps being likened to Yoda's duel in Episode 2, but I actually hate that duel because Yoda's duel needed to be presented like Darth Vader's slaying in Rogue One; pure skill, the work of an extreme force user who can see what's coming and wield the air as a weapon, rather than relying on fucking acrobatics.

Think most people just don't understand why you wouldn't just recast characters instead of allowing CGI. Since the human eye is pretty good at spotting irregularities with CGI. It definitely has come a long way, they did a decent job at making Tarkin look like he was in the movie. However you can obviously still tell it was CGI, and that's the problem most people have with it.

Not everyone has as keen a "CG eye" as us millennials (born between 1980-1995). My parents have zero practice looking at CGI humans and they didn't realize he was fake til I told them. Disney knows their target demo is watching these for the memberberries.

That said, I like it. Definitely the 4th best Star Wars movie so far. Maybe even the 2nd best. I kind of hate the whole Jedi thing though so the lack of focus on that really helped me. Also I loved how they portrayed Vader: as a malicious super-badass. I understand what they are trying to do with Kylo Ren, but it still was cringey as fuck.

you won't have any trouble following the story, if that's what you're asking.

if you're asking if it is a good movie even if you aren't into sci-fi/space opera/whatever genre this is, then yes, it's one of the better movies at your cineplex now playing. (but a monster calls, la la land and silence would be better options).

I'm a pretty big star wars fan but i'm still on the fence about recommending it.

It just depends on what you find entertaining in movies.

I can imagine if you're Chinese or something and watching this subtitled or even dubbed in a theater you'd get a huge kick out of it. My biggest gripes come from the dialogue specifically. All the performances were ok but the lines themselves felt all over the place in terms of tone and quality.

Just as a visual piece of media it's beautiful. As mentioned before I'm not a huge fan of the music. It's editing feels about as good as it's dialogue but there's some pretty artful direction in some of the shots and scenes. A few nice set pieces.

You can really ignore all the references to other Star Wars'. It's a Where's Waldo of fan service and honestly if you know less about the universe it probably makes the film better.

also. 40% of it is reshoots. Saving Private Ryan felt shorter and more entertaining.


So in short, get a cheap ticket, go with some friends or go on a busy night and hope for a good crowd.

Darth Vader's voice sounded like James Earl Jones was recording it at age 100 in a hospital on his deathbed with only 1 week left to live. Couldn't they of tried re-recording it more times until it sounded right? How could they of put so little effort into the "most important" lines in the movie?

The CGI characters really catch the eye, Im sitting there thinking "Wtf is this computergame motherfucker doing in a scene alongside real people?". But thats not really that big of a deal in comparison to the voice of Darth Vader himself sounding so screwy.

I recently decided to watch all the star wars movies, since I hadn't watched any of them except episode 1 in theaters when I was like ten.
The prequels kinda sucked, 5 was alright, 6 was just weird and a total change of pace and tone, fart jokes and shit, I guess that's just because George Lucas is a retard.
The prequels were about equally as terrible, 2 and 3 had some merit. 1 was really hard to watch at times.
TFA was not too bad, it was a lot easier to watch and get into than all the rest. But I figured they deserved a shot since I'm big into sci fi, but I don't see much merit in the series, though I will watch Rogue One when I can get a decent stream of it. My thoughts are that most of the value comes from nostalgia, as that wasn't a factor in my watching it at all, and I seemed to be missing something that everyone else seems to get and really enjoy the movies.

Nearly every scene in the original trailer is changed or absent from the film.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sC9abcLLQpI

Lucas did all sorts of last minute changes and story changing elements in the editing room but I think what happened with Rogue One is the studio stepped in and demanded changes without fully understanding the director's vision for the film.

Garreth Edwards sold us on a the war movie concept but the studio wanted it to feel more Star Warsy so they shmucked it up with hope speeches and fan service.

Robot was shit. He supposed to be Chappie's big brother or something?
Vader pun was fucking terrible.
The acting was really not that great from 90% of the cast.
The main cgi guy reminded me of when they did the CGI Jim Carrey in A Christmas Carol.

However, it was still a cool movie because I love Star Wars, just not as good as I had hoped.
