Discuss Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I can't do it anymore... these movies hold zero interest to anyone who isn't into the whole star wars/trek cults... it seems the only enjoyment on offer is piecing together the various references to previous and future films and such obsessive fan minutiae

Mediocre film to be honest, despite, for the most part, having such a talented cast

On the plus side it got pretty funny after a while when every character would die after being useful to the plot... and it's not much of a chore to look at Felicity Jones's angelic face for a couple of hours...

Why don't they make more of an effort to have these films stand on their own or work as movies? Is it just a combination of lazy filmmaking (captive audience) and conservative corporate oversight?

The 007 franchise takes more risks and is more cinematic on average than anything in the star* arena, so i don't think it can entirely be blamed on commercial considerations

The only reason to watch this movie is to see the last 20 minutes. At least it did not take 3 moves to get us there like it did for the Darth Vader origin story.

The "Darth Vader origin story" was really about the step-by-step rise of a dictator misusing and dismantling democracy, it's institutions and it's protectors, and the downfall of a Republic - all that mirrored in the corruption of a gifted young man...

Face it, this epic story, in the mind of the director anyway, centered around Jar Jar Binks as the lynchpin of the whole prequel trilogy. And it only god worse when more writers stepped in. It was a mess.

I liked it. I'm not a fan. This was 1st SW I watched since RotJ in the 80s. I heard TFA is better and will watch that soon.

Frankly i found the characters to be lifeless and boring. I didn't give two sh!ts about them.
