Star Wars

on 12/17/2016, 1:28 pm
So I seen Rogue One yesterday, really glad cuz I DIdn't think I'd get to see it on the first day but I did. 

Holy crap was that so much better than Episode 7. It was honestly on par with the Original Trilogy and had probably one of hte top 3 battles in Star Wars so far. It also had way cooler shots than Ep.7 and was obviously much more daring and took more risks, the tone isn't even all that Star Wars. 

Spoiler:
The shots where you see the blast of the Death Star just looming over toward them were amazing. THe first one looked way cooler but the second one was just heartbreaking, it was like seeing a nuclear blast in the distance and knowing you'll be hit in a couple minutes. I was really scared they'd make the characters kiss but they didn't, so kudos. 

The last battle was ridiculous too, it had like 4 different waves and never let up, with like everything intertwining together to work. And of course at the end when Vader shows up and it basically becomes a horror movie in that hallway scene, holy shit it just reconfirms why Darth Vader is one of the best villains in cinema history. 

I also forgot that everyone was gonna die. It wasn't until the second dude died that I was like "oh yeah, this is a prequel and none of the characters exist past this." It made theimpact and severity of all they did so much better and I'm glad they didn't bitch out on anything. Plus the cameos and homage shots were way more subtle than "LEL It's like the plots of 4 5 and 6 all in one movie again"

Edit: Also there was some CGI tomfoolery going on in the movie and is apparently divisive, both on which characters looked good/bad and and whether it should have  been done at all. I thought the first CGI character was really convinving, something was slightly off but I didn't even think it was CGI, I thought they recast the person as a lookalike, it was well done to me. The 2nd CGI character, holy shit that looked disturbing and I noticed it instantly. I really wish they didn't do that as it completely threw me out of the movie, even though it was literally the last few seconds of it.

Spoilers don't work. at least not for me, if I try to click it, nothing happens. I can still get to it and look at whats there. there's something up with the css making it visible when you click it.

and yeah vote for comments you like, it gives that user reputation which shows up on your posts and shiet
