More thoughts...
Glad that "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." was still present. Still can't get over the 20th Century Fox fanfare not being right at the start of a SW movie!
The Rogue One logo was shite. Looked really thin and weedy. It looked like something out of a cheap fan film.

Overall I enjoyed it. Would like to see it again, but from the first viewing here's a few likes and dislikes:

Likes
- Much preferred the characters/actors in this compared to TFA
- Thankfully they removed that cringe "I'm a rebel, I rebel!" line that was in all the trailers. I was dreading that!
- Ridiculously good special effects, especially the CGI Tarkin and Leia. I wonder how they got permission to use his likeness?
- Loved that the end was basically the beginning of Star Wars, although it leaves no room for a sequel!

Dislikes
- No crawl at the start!?
- The intro - completely pointless, bad script and over-acting. It added nothing to the film, should have started when she was an adult.
- Everyone else loves it but I found the new droid annoying
- The ninja guys - don't get me wrong ninjas are cool, but why are they in a Star Wars film? I like naked women too, don't necessarily need to see them in Star Wars :lol:
- Over-doing all the special moves - example Vader doing about 20 force-throws in a row at the end. This seems to be the way of films these days, TFA was the same, once is never enough any more. Vader was sparing of his Sith skills in the OT, LESS IS MORE!

Looking forward to seeing it a second time.

Ian, that white beast was Moroff.... Great report BTW..

Thank you! I doubted it was a wampa, but it happened so fast I never got a good look at it/him. You can definitely see the similarities.

Just got back. Really enjoyed it. Didn't know what to expect. I avoided pretty much every spoiler (full Internet and media black out) so plenty of nice surprises. They've made a great film! Ready for next Christmas now.

Just got back. Loved it. Expected to see vader on a solo mission in his tie fighter near the end but glad it ended the way it did instead! Wondered whether the chubby pilot was meant to be a young porkins?! Wanted to see at-at inside cockpit shot. Thought I saw one of the band of merry men wearing a boba style helmet which was cool - Jengo? Leia had a slight potato head but still amazing. Well impressed with Tarkin. Better than TFA hands down. Possibly best fight scene so far.........

If any film was going to bridge part of the gap before ANH this is it. Gareth Edwards has done a great job in this, and i feel that we have finally found a film with the look and feel of the OT. I have to admit that i liked this much more than TFA, and it left me with a feeling ive not had in....

Amazing nod to Cushing, his family must be honoured to see that. I didnt think Leia was bad, she was a horny little minx back in the day :D Ive a funny feeling that Vader is what made us go all giddy. I also loved the end by the way of using the run up to ANH.

Loved it 8)

Yep, just after he runs outside to tell her the news, you can see Chopper exiting the building as well on the left of the screen. Very cool.

I agree, this is the film I've been waiting for a story submerged in the rule of the Empire not tied to the Skywalker family.

Done very well.

Just been to see it, not much to add that hasn't already been said. The score was poor, i thought Tarkin was really well done. My missus hadn't realised he was CG'd until i told her. I thought it fitted in really well given the time frame it was working with. I wasn't a fan of Vader's scenes at all. The actor playing him didn't fit the costume and his fight scene was pretty underwhelming IMO. They seem to struggle to strike a balance between underwhelming and ridiculously over the top. Saying that Disney have really shown GL how to make a SW film. I hope he watches this and realises just what monstrosities the prequels were.

Ohh and good to see you back Ian, although I suspect you spent a year typing that essay out. :lol:

Finally got to watch it this morning. Had seen most people were big fans and to be honest, not sure what spoilers could have been given as we all know the ending

Loved all the nods to the OT - Wally, DSD, R2, C3PO, Imperial Gunners etc - and the bits from the cockpits were great. I thought that there were loads of subtle references that maybe some of us in the hobby might think were a bit corny but to people coming back to the film having not really been immersed in Star Wars since they watched it as a kid would love those

Tarkin was amazing - I am not sure I get why people are knocking that - the fact that this is possible in this day an age is pretty much sci-fi itself (watch some of the Black Mirror episodes to see what I mean) - the Leia was a bit cheesier but again better that anything else I have seen on the big screen in terms of recreating past characters

I didn't really notice the music that much - that might be a negative but to be honest it isn't really why I watch films so I wasn't bothered

Overall I am glad to see it won over a lot of people - considering all the doom and gloom around Disney taking on the franchise then I think that they have done a bloody good job with the first two films they have put out

scooternick did you mean Jango?? I also spotted the helmet! But when I think about it, hes gone so could it be another bounty hunter?? Well spotted I forgot about that. I am going to watch it again this week so will get a better look :)

This is a nice look at some of the Imperial troopers and hardware in Rogue One. Someone mentioned about the AT-AT being destroyed easy compared to Hoth, and this explains it (these ones are primarily for Cargo with weaker armour and no chin guns, not assault)...

Sorry, yeah Jango. It was hard to make out the colour of the helmet?
