He was relentless, unstoppable. I felt terrified for those doomed rebel soldiers. Absolutely the best bit of the movie.

Yes, a nice bit of retconning there Wink

My Mum saw this, probably the first time she's watched a Star Wars flick before me Oops

Finally watched it and found it pretty boring. None of the characters stand out and feel like actual people. It looks amazing though except for the two CGI faces

Felt very gritty and real to me.. it reminded me in many ways of the raids in France and Italy in WWII.. (the Dieppe raid in particular)

The CGI faces also looked good (to me) and were not 'over done' I think they got the balance about right.

Loved it.

Yeah i don't get it. Loved Star Wars my entire life, but these two films have killed it for me.

Rogue One didn't have any good characters. The next day I'd forgotten all of their names even the robot (who I liked). All so dour and boring with zero charisma. I never cared who lived or died, because I didn't feel like I knew any of them. The first hour as well is mind numbingly dull.

The movie never needed to exist and feels like a cash grab, look here's guys from the Mos Eisley Cantina!

Lastly I wanna say I'm glad y'all dig it, but the universal praise these two flicks have gotten confuses the hell out of me.

K2SO was brilliant I thought with some very funny comedic lines, I also liked Chirrut mwe who was the blind guardian of the Whills. Forest Whitaker was also good as Saw Guerra who was Jyn's mentor.

Good to see Richard Franklin and Warwick Davis get roles too.

Personally I welcome films expanding the SW universe. That scene when Darth Vader storms the Rebel Star Cruiser is very dark and disturbing. Although I was rooting for those rebel troopers, I knew they hadn't got a snowballs chance in hell getting out alive.

Did it really expand on anything though? I mean did the first lines of ANH's opening crawl need a 2 hour movie?

Forest's character just gives up, for no reason and it was pretty silly. Also he needed a throat lolly. The Vader scenes felt tacked on, did it look cool? Um yeah I guess, but didn't really add anything. I had a number of laughs, but that was all from the RiffTrax commentary I had playing alongside the movie.

I don't think the way Disney is making its blockbusters is gelling with me anymore, it did for a time with the Marvel movies, but since Civil War I've been nonplussed and thinking back I've never felt the need to rewatch any of them.

No it wasn't NEEDED, in the same way you didn't NEED Empire Strikes Back or Jedi. (ooh controversial! Pfft ) BUT it expands on the universe, fleshes out the Rebel Alliance's first victory over the Empire, striking from their hidden base etc. It shows heroism and the desperate nature of people fighting for the Rebellion at that time when things seemed to be going the Empire's way.

Making Saw sound like a polished actor fresh out of RADA speaking the Queen's English would have been silly, he's a worn soldier with a high mileage and sounded perfectly correct for the type of character that he was.

The Vader scenes are perfect, he's the Empire's trouble shooter. It makes sense that he will be involved in Death Star projects success. Large scale infrastructure projects invariably gain 'project creep' and there's nowt like a Sith Lord to keep the workers (and management) running to schedule Grin

Bottom line is for me I think its the best 'prequel' SW yet.

I still think Sith is better than any of the new stuff.

But yeah we're going in circles, because i couldn't invest in the characters and the first hour was extremely boring I didn't care much about the "pay offs" so agree to disagree Oops

I forgot every characters name within an hour of seeing it! Glad ya dug it, but it's more stinkiness for me

Haven't been able to take Sith seriously since I saw this excellent parody.

I don't if that's a mark of a film being bad. Whether you remember the names of characters depends on how many there are and whether they are referred to by name a lot. It was pretty easy to pick up Luke, Han and Leia after watching Star Wars for the first time, but I've seen The Magnificent Seven a few times and still don't know the characters' names, doesn't make it a bad film.

For me it was a sign it was entirely forgettable. I didn't remember some names, I remembered none of them. Not good and I think it's because the movie lacked good and interesting characters

Well The Magnificent Seven is a magnificent film and all I can remember is Brynner's character 'Chris'. Or a Bridge too Far another classic film again I can only remember a fraction of the names of the people in it. (also quite a few B7 actors in it!)
