BQB’s Short Review of Star Wars: Rogue One (2016)

Hey 3.5 readers.

So, as a good nerd, I’ll wait a few days until you all get a chance to see it although honestly, if you wait past the first weekend then you are not a nerd.

My quick impression is that this movie is tight and legit.  A bit darker and grittier than we are used to seeing in Star Wars though still family friendly because, you know, Disney.

In my opinion, it’s better than the prequels and last year’s The Force Awakens.

I particular enjoyed the sassy android and Darth Vader, well, I won’t spoil it.

Damn it.  The baby boomers got the original movies.  Millennials get this fine film.  What did Generation X get?  Jar Jar Binks!  Generation X screwed again!

Seriously though, go see it on the big screen.  You won’t be disappointed.

May the force be with all 3.5 of you.

    I really liked it, too. I might have to go see it again over Christmas sometime.

    • Alas, all the “The Empire is so stupid they didn’t think to plug up that air vent” jokes are kind of lost now. But it was great. A little bummed they didn’t do the story crawl at the beginning and they did a version of the theme song but not the actual one but I guess they’ll reserve that for the ongoing saga.

        And yet they didn’t seem to improve the design for the 2nd one? 😀 Too focused on being evil to worry about engineering.

      • Well, it also begs the question that in light of this movie and the ample notice of a problem why didn’t they just send a stormtrooper up to weld that open vent shut or something but oh well.
