    My favorite complaint about this movie so far is that Felicity Jones is not sexy enough.

    I suspect you jizz on yours. Hypocrit.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet. Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents, Princess Leia races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy…
    These words have more weight and power now than they ever came close to having before.

    Saw it again.

    It still has pacing problems and a lot of the characters are about as well dimensioned as a cardboard cutout, but I was entertained.

    For those who like to nitpick continuity, here's an interesting take on how Rogue One creates some problems for the beginnings of A New Hope. (Yes, it's on a D&D blog.)

    I was entertained and very impressed, and I prefer not to upset that by putting my director goggles on and dissecting the thing. Almost all movies can be made to look bad under a critical eye.

    I will say I don't agree with the Tarkin assessments. I was stunned by the scenes because I know the actor is dead, but if I didn't know that I would have went with it. As for the Leia scene - I teared up a little since she'd died the day before I saw the film.

    1) I don't think Vader ever sees the disk itself. The plans were beamed to the main ship, and he knows once he gets to that main ship that they're on the small ship docked with that main ship (though he doesn't know the identity of that smaller ship). He sees that smaller ship leave, so he knows the plans must be on board it, but he has no reason to think it's on a disk as opposed to in it's computer.

    2) He never saw Leia on that ship in Rogue One. Nor does he have certain identity of that ship (there is no reason for them to broadcast their identification while fleeing). Presumably it's a model with more than one of those types in the galaxy.

    So while Vader is pretty darn sure he has the right ship, and therefore Leia is a spy, it's not necessarily as blatant as that blog portrays it to be. He didn't just see HER flee with a DISK. He saw a ship that looks remarkably like hers flee in this direction with a transmission of the plans on board in some manner.

    The only good point I think he makes is:

    3) "I have traced the Rebel spies to her. Now she is my only link to find their secret base!"

    Yeah. Kinda hard to claim she is his only link. Unless the implication is that, because he's not really in charge of everything left behind on Scarif but is instead only in charge of plans-chasing, that from his inter-empire office politics perspective she's his only link barring having to go back to Tarkin empty handed concerning the base location. But yes, Rogue One does change that line. Might have been better in Rogue One to show the remaining ships either getting away or blowing up.

    I feel like Rogue One should have put up this end title card just before the credits rolled:

    Star Wars will return in Episode IV: A New Hope.
    Star Wars is a flat circle. Or a Moebius strip. An Escher staircase?
    We've always been at war with Eastasia.

    flat circle.
    This line never made sense to me. Does Cohle not know what a circle is? I don't even know how it's meant to be poetic, if it is. Saying time is a flat circle is like saying time is a round circle. I don't think Nietzsche called the circle flat when he was writing about this concept.

    All circles are flat. If they had anything more than two dimensions they wouldn't be circles.
