Hooooly crap, I finally finished the Rebels season and the amount of stuff that went down in one finale was frickin' ridiculous. But man was that a really good episode!

I need season 3 to come right now.

They're also releasing a book about him, written by Timothy Zahn himself.

I assume I am not the only one to have seen Rogue One. Without getting too spoilery, I was overall impressed. Direct connections to Episode IV worked pretty well, mostly without seeming too dumbly fanservicey. Some of the CG effects that I didn't even realize were CG effects to begin with were pretty impressive. Saw Gerrera didn't really seem to have much in common with Saw Gerrera as seen in The Clone Wars, but it had been ~20 years.

Also worth noting the Catalyst tie-in novel was pretty decent. Lots more backstory on Galen, Lyra, Krennic, and Tarkin from the Clone Wars to the early Imperial years.

I saw the movie last night and I did like it a lot. I found the beginning to be a bit slow and hard to follow though especially with all the changing characters in scenes. I also thought the lighting was kind of bad but that could've been my vision problems playing into things.

Overall I think they did a good job in connecting this movie to a New Hope.

The theater I saw it in had a dark picture too, but that's the fault of the theater and not the movie. They purposefully dim the bulbs to make them last longer, and it makes movies look like dark messes.

Rogue One was exactly what I expected it to be; not really my style but good for what it was trying to do. Only one cameo felt unnecessary to me, the rest were very pleasant to see again. But I totally did not expect them to pull out the Tron: Legacy* digital face thing.

 

*idk this effect may have been done before then but that was the first time I'd ever seen it done

 

My sister, on the other hand, claims she liked it more than The Force Awakens.

I have no intention of watching Rogue One since it looks like a completely redundant movie.

Watching the Half in the bag discussion just reaffirmed my impression.

I wasn't sure that's what they'd done until later. I kind of assumed they'd found someone close enough + prosthetics like at the end of Episode III, just a much better job. Some people think it looks obviously fake, but it worked on me. I have seen it pointed out that Disney seems to be behind the biggest use of such methods, for whatever reasons. Tron Legacy, this, and young Tony Stark in Civil War being some big examples.


On a non Rogue One note, I'm finally nearing the end of The Clone Wars series. Considering it's a pretty actiony show and the prequels sometimes get slammed for spending too much time on things like senate matters, I thought it was pretty funny there was a three episode arc where banking interest rates play a crucial role.

Episode VIII's title is The Last Jedi.

I mean I feel like we could have come up with this name a year ago but nope we waited for this. xD
