Wasn't bad.

Wasn't great either.

The sub-alterned messages gave pause.

I guess only those who were young enough to see the 'New Hope" in '77 have been awakened.

Maybe.

Saw it Saturday night.

Awesome.

It sure brought a whole new meaning to the line in A New Hope when Leah says: "A lot of people died for these plans".

I think they did pretty good with the CGI Grand Moff (or "governor" in this one) Tarkin.

Sarcastic droid: Brilliant.

Can't wait until it shows up on the web so I can watch it about a dozen more times.

I went with my 15 year-old, he knows the movies INSIDE OUT.

After the movie was over, walking out, he was waiting to hear what I thought, and my first words were: "A lot of people died for those plans".

He hadn't seen the reference/remembered that. BLEW him away. His jaw dropped at the same time the penny dropped.

It made it so much better, after the fact. This gritty movie really brought it home.

I guess I'm not a Star Wars buff like I thought I was. I didn't really follow this movie much... I went into it thinking it was a sequel to the last one and not a prequel to the first original one. Whoops.

I saw it last night. I loved it. I knew that certain characters had to be CGI but at the time I watched it I sure couldn't tell. Seeing the very end made me a little emotional, even, where they tie it into "A New Hope".

I loved seeing all the outfits, etc. from the originals. And after recently watching episodes 1-3 and seeing how everything in those was cartoon CGI garabage, this one was really satisfying to watch. Especially K2-SO? being live action and not CGI.

I just read today that some of the cockpit shots from the final battle were actually from the original Star Wars film that didn't make it into the final version of Star Wars.

It was a nice continuity touch. They used original footage for red leader and gold leader and did not have to use any CGI. If you notice they show red 5's death. Luke is the replacement red 5 in the assault against the death star. They did a great job nailing the little stuff.

Yup. They even nailed the voice. Red Leader, etc. Nailed so well they may have been just copies of the original.

Good copy? No TeleSync or CAM format bullshit. No subs, or Chinese crap either.

It hasn't showed up on my private sites yet. It won't until there is a good quality rip out there. I don't check public torrent sites anymore, too much garbage.

I found very refreshing that they added a comic relief that was not infantile and/or incredibly annoying. Lucas should take some notes on how movies are made.

I agree. That tin can had some good lines.


I also liked how it highlighted the Death Stars weakness wasn't an obvious oversight, but a revenge plan for killing his wife and having to abandon his daughter by Galen Erso.

Absolutely agree. Especially with the second comment.

There are nods to quite a few other flicks.

I'm gonna have to see it again to catch all the little things I missed the first time. I was not expecting it to be that good.

and I'll happily pay to see it in theaters instead of waiting.

It was badass! I wonder how close this plays with the books out there? I might want to read them all someday.

Watched it tonight. Excellent story that really ties into the 1977 Star Wars: A New Hope. A lot of people died for the plans of the Death Star...yep, not a kid's movie.

All the pre-Disney books are considered Legends, and not canon. Anything after Disney bought Lucasfilm is canon. That includes the new comic books.

I read Catalyst, which is kind of the lead-in to Rogue One. Could have seen the movie without reading the book though. Just goes into Urso's and Krennic's backstory a little more than the movie did.
