Just got back. Overall verdict - really enjoyed it.
Couple of drawbacks:
- there were places I really lamented the lack of John Williams.
- CGI Tarkin suffered from severe Uncanny Valley at times. Red Leader and Gold Leader were excellent; CGI Leia fell somewhere in the middle; but Tarkin frequently moved like a video game cutscene.
K2SO got most of the best lines. I liked Donnie Yen's character, and his sidekick's repeating blaster was sweet.
Lots of nods to Episode IV - cameos that were cute or cool without being silly, familiar shots in places like Yavin IV or the Death Star.
I know they've said they avoided the fanfare and the title crawl to distance it from the 'main line' movies, but I don't like that decision. And I'm sad that they deliberately averted a Bad Feeling About This line.
Is it just me, or did Vader feel a little 'off'? I know they got JEJ back in to do the voice, but it didn't seem quite right.
I know I came out of Episode VII and wanted to go straight back in and watch it again. I don't have the same impulse for Rogue One, but I think they made a fine Star Wars film.
