No topic for this? This movie was amazing. I know a lot of people have mixed feelings but for all its changes to the usual I thought this one felt more like a Star Wars than The Force Awakens, which I also liked a lot. Who watched this.
I haven't yet, but I'm gonna watch it once it hits DVD/RedBox/Netflix. I only reserve going to the movies for 2 reasons: its DAMN awesome, or its my BDay.
So I went to see this. Well, that's not why I went--I went because my daughter wanted to go to a movie with her friend and she needed me for a ride, and I didn't want to watch what they were watching--Anyway...
I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it was simultaneously good and bad for me. The beginning exposition seemed a bit rushed, the middle was necessary and cliche, and the end was predictable yet thrilling. I can't remember ever being so angry after watching a movie. And yet, it fills in some backstory in a satisfying way. It's really hard to quantify the ambiguity that it created for me. I wanted to really like it, and it was just OK. It fell into the uncanny valley in more than one way, let's just say.
I enjoyed it and I want to watch it again soon to pick up on things I missed the first time through. I knew in general how it was going to end based off of lines in the original trilogy, but the how was what I was interested in. I like how it was done. Also the last scene... so after I was done viewing Rogue One I saw the updates on Twitter that Carrie Fisher died. That day. Just before I saw the movie so I didn't know until after. It hit me.
