This is a film you need to see twice.
I didn't enjoy the first viewing a much as I thought I would... but after a second viewing, I left very pleased. You do pick up on a lot more in the second viewing. Although I had to close my eyes for the Leia flouting in space. Once past that, I sat back and enjoyed it.

I dunno, I struggle to differentiate between C3P0 the character and Anthony Daniels the self loving cunt. Thus I'm not a big fan of 3P0.

Steady on now! There's no need for language like that! By all means call anyone on here anything you want, tell them you wanna mug their granny, U-grade all you like, but NOTHING NOTHING is worse than a prequel!

I've banned people for less than what I'm letting you away with here. :wink:

I will only watch the original movies and maybe rouge one from now on.

I'm done!! :evil:


Not at all mate, its only damaging if you want it to be. Nothing will ever damage them to me. Its like this to me:

OT - I was there at the start - I grew up with the toys - it hold some of my greatest childhood memories.

Nothing can take that away from me and it something ill have until the day I move on.

Is Rouge One the new make up line??? :lol:

Well said Weasel. Possibly the most arrogant, ignorant prick I have ever met from Star Wars. He is a horrible, vile little man . He is a camped up, gold suited butler that's about it.

Kenny Baker was 100 times the man he is, may he RIP.

Yeah his attitude to Kenny Baker was disgusting. He thought of himself as the star and Kenny as tagging along on his coat tails.
The fact he charges to do the voice and just generally seems to love himself don't help his cause either.

What about the bit where Luke goes for a shit and Rey won't leave him in peace?

It's hard to disagree with anything you've said weasel!
I should have been clearer as I'm not a huge 3PO fan.
I was trying to say that I hated the way that the OT characters (ok not Luke) were being marginalised.And seemed to only be in the two films to please old farts like me.Even chewie was underused.I really thought they should have handled these characters with more care,because of the original connection.Like Luke's first meeting with Leia after all those years ' I know I've changed my hair' For god's sake give me a break!! Even Luke winking,at one of the droids,I can't even remember which one by this stage...
If these characters are in bloody use them more,Edwards certainly knew Vader would be the draw in R1 & it was done superbly imo.

I guess it's a balancing act between trying to bring in new characters so the films can move on (Luke, Leia and all continuing to run round blow things up would be a bit unrealistic) and keeping the old characters in it.
Partly to keep us old fans happy but also because they would probably still have parts to play. Although surely, given the average survival rate of a rebel seems to be about 3 days and they have spent what 30 years fighting the Empire and First Order, one or two of them may well have been killed or got fecked off and gone off to do something a tad less dangerous.

Saw it last night, and the more I process it, the better I think it is.
Mark's acting was great in it, his role was amazing, and I am so glad to see that Carrie's last on screen role was bigger and better than what she was given in TFA.
I'm going to see it twice again today.
I'll try to write a longer review/explanation a t a later time.

Ok
So I know most of the plot holes have been listed
But if the rebel ships were faster shouldn’t they be getting further in front
Plus I can’t get into a pub in Bournemouth with trainers on but you can walk into the poshes casino in the galaxy in any old shit :shock:
But give to the admiral of the fleet to dress up nice - no dreary combat uniform for her
