I was exceptionally disappointed last year, but various glowing reviews from people who, like me, were not impressed with TFA have managed to change my opinion, and I now have tickets to see it tomorrow afternoon at 1:00. I'll post my review sometime tomorrow night.

I saw Rogue One yesterday and enjoyed it. I'll wait until others have seen it before making detailed comments.

I'm using spoilers tag here for the moment, eventhough I am not telling anything about the content or the story or the plot of the movie, but just in case someone doesn't want to know anything at all about Rogue One before watching it... don't click!

Just back from seeing Rogue One.  I will definitely go to see it again.  There is sooooo much going on in the back ground.
I'm assuming this guy was from a local 501st, just hanging out at the theater.

I am ecstatic to say that I was completely thrilled with this movie! I was completely hesitant, considering my extreme dislike for not just TFA, but for Disney's involvement at all. I only decided to even give it a shot in the last few days, and generally never even bothered watching trailers. Boy, am I glad I did. Completely redeemed the franchise after what was, in my opinion, a pure shit show last year. Not quite on the same level as Empire, but very close, if not equal to ANH. I am a fan of the PT, and for the last decade have alternated between ANH and ROTS as my #2 SW movie, but I can definitively say Rogue One is better than ROTS. Just not sure if after 12 hours I want to put it on equal footing to ANH.

I intend to give a full review, and I like Nicolas's idea to avoid spoiling it, so my full review is contained within the spoiler tags.

Great review of Rogue One Ian. You've pretty well summed up my feelings too. Although the 'white hairy creature' is not what you think it is. Wink (there is a twin figure pack available that identifies it).

4 viewings so far, I think that will be it unless my local theater has the original english version with french subtitles like they did with TFA last year. Then I would really have to go at least once just to have James Earl Jones' Vader voice! Smile

Agreed Bill!

I was beyond upset with how the franchise was being handled the last decade, but this movie really redeemed a lot for me. Looks like I'll be an "every other year" fan. Rey and the rest of the "new" sequels can kiss my ass, but I'll give the spin offs a chance. If Han Solo is half as good as Rogue One, it'll still be far better than TFA.

Rogue One didn't have that many "oh give me a fucking break!" moments like TFA did, (Rey using the Jedi mind trick, the 2d puzzle map, the earth splitting between people conveniently).

The only one that really bothered me is when Jyn was as telling Krenic the whole plan before the data was transmitted. I was like "calm down" lol

Ive never seen any of the other mivies besdies the ot and episode 1 3x the day it came out in the theatres. The new franchise sucks to me all of it but rogue one was different . It was interesting fun and dark with great characters and plot , something i never thought it could be

I'm undecided on 8 as well. I swore I wouldn't see 7, but the kids dragged me to it. I'm sure they'll try again this year, but after simply having a bad attitude towards 7, this time being a sequel to TFA, I simply have zero interest. It may just be the first live action SW movie I'll never see at the theater (never saw The Clone Wars cartoon at the theater either, but that hardly counts).

JJ Abrams and a lot of the creatives/writers on lost specialize in content for the lowest common denominator, but then again Kennedy/Disney has final approval. Might be better this time lol

If you had known me the last few years, Chris, you'd know it was Disney's involvement, not JJ's, that had me very critical and not wanting to see it.

I enjoyed TFA last years. Just enjoyed, but nothing much. It was pleasant and "nice" for me, but nothing more. The thing is now Rogue One really makes TFA look and feel wrong (and even lame for some part of the movie). I watched TFA again last week, after 7 total viewings of Rogue One... and TFA really "struggles" compared with Rogue One. Not only with the scenario or characters (damn, the more I watch this movie the more Kylo Ren seems ridiculous) but also aesthetically. The new Stormtroopers look feels wrong, the new ships bring nothing new or interesting... The soundtrack as well, I was disapointed with John Williams work for TFA. I can only remember 2 tracks from it eventhough I got the CD. But Rogue One OST really nailed it (not to mention I already liked Micheal Giacchino's work on the soundtracks of Medal Of Honor videogames). I think that's the risk Disney was taking with spin-off movies every 2 years : spin-offs being better than the main SW sequel story episodes . And well, it happened with the very first spin-off who puts the first sequel episode down and make it look out of place. This must have put a lot more pressure on Lucasflim's shoulder for episode 8. I will go watch it, but I already know I won't be as much excited as I was for Rogue One.
