    Credit where credit is due, Rogue One is a gorgeous looking movie. Other than some minor nitpicks, like the Stormtrooper's sounding inccorrect and Darth Vader's terrible dialogue everything looks and feels accurate to the original films. HOWEVER, RO is a boring, heartless, slog that lacks any reason to care about asingle one of the characters except the kind-of-fun spy droid. There are so many scenes where characters are talking on and on and nothing they say has any impact because the direction is bad or because the urgency is told instead of shown. The movie is especially bad because it wastes incredible actors like Donnie Yen, and Mads Mikkelsen. The film is chock-full of cool visuals but the acting was bad, the writing was terrible, and the pacing is god-awful. Watch for the capes and the cool Vader scene at the end, and forget you saw anything else. And then watch Solo because it's 1000x better.
  • It's not Star Wars

    As a movie on its own it's fine, but it is not Star Wars. It's too downbeat and pretentious to earn that distinction. It's fine that people are responding to this movie and is an answer to their desire to have a movie match their sensibilities, but to really consider what a complete mismatch this movie is to the REAL saga, consider how ill fit this movie is to episode IV. It also is filled with significant plot holes. Technically well made with superior production values, but Star Wars has never been so downbeat. And taking into account the rather bleak fate and setting its hilarious that they're selling toys for this movie. Come on kids, let's re-enact mass slaughter and a bunch of tragic death scenes. Yay.
  • More SW Standalone films like Rogue One (&Solo) should happen and heres why:

    Rogue one is Hands down One of the best Star wars films ever made and even though the film that came two years after it, that being Solo preformed poorly at the box office, I think more standalone films like Solo and Rouge one should be made regardless of what The so-called “fans” think. Sure Disney CEO Bob Iger has said in a interview that quote: “There didn’t seem like there was that much demand for another Standalone’Star Wars’ movie after Solo” end quote. But what Mr Iger clearly doesn’t see os that this movie, Rouge one (the Very first standalone Star wars movie) has made 1.056 billion US dollars and has proven that there is a demand for Standalone Star Wars movies! Yes Solo made less money, but do you know why it made less money? Because it came out just five months after Ep.8 The Last Jedi and because of that a lot of people were turned off from all things SW and just couldn’t come to terms with Solo because of how dad Last Jedi was, in conclusion Lucasfilm/Disney really should make more Standalone SW movies, wether they be released theatrically or put on Disney Plus, I think SW Standalone films have potential to be on the same pedestals as all the main SW movies!
  • Probably my favorite one

    This was amazing. It sure was different, but that was the point. Excellent acting, astounding visual effects and memorable music. The script was a little flat in some parts though.

    IW: Everyone dies (not really)because they need too stop a purple guy from stealing rocks (i’m a huge marvel fan) RO: Everyone dies (gruesomely) because they need too stop an iconic space station controlled by freaking satan himself from destroying a whole planet (i grew up on prequels so i’m not a fan)
  • This is the real deal

    I’m sorry I love this movie, but at the end of the day ,we still don’t know these characters except Jyn Erso. It was very entertaining with great special effects and a Darth Vader scene that felt like it was pulled from the good Star Wars video games epic! However, judging by those qualities makes a very great film but I just like “Solo” a little bit more because the characters were more interesting! Solo is actually a great film like Rogue One! If Force Awakens had been a flop, “Rogue One”would have been received by the audience like “Solo” was! Last Jedi was not a bad movie in fact far from it! The risks it took were phenomenal and I was happy we didn’t get a tired Star Wars formula!
