Rogue One (2016)

This film was cool. It was nice having various questions being answered.

Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones)

On the other hand, it was also bittersweet because there were so many great characters brought to life and yet this movie would be the last we'd see of them. In particular, I loved the character played by Donnie Yen.

Trailers: The Boss Baby (2017), Power Rangers (2017), Cars 3 (2017) (teaser), The Mummy (2017), Dunkirk (2017), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).

Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)


I initially intended this to just be a screenshot viewing. But after about one and a half hours, I decided to finish it - though now and then I diverted my attention while it played in the background.

As before, I enjoyed the movie. It was darker than most other films in the Star Wars series. Unfortunately, it's role in answering questions rather than raising questions makes for a less exciting film. There's less of a surprise. If, however, one were to watch Rogue One prior to A New Hope, it's possible the movie would take a different effect - at least on the first viewing.

Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 98% match. I decided to give the movie a thumbs up.

I was writing up my notes for Solo: A Star Wars Story today and made a brief comparison to Rogue One. Subsequently, I went to my post for Rogue One, saw a picture of Jyn Erson (Felicity Jones), and Googled her name. That's when I learned that she was the same actress who played Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

K-2SO (Alan Tudyk)

2: "Are you kidding me? I'm blind."
2: "I'm one with the force, the force is with me."
2: I originally wondered why she didn't take the message with her, but now I realized she was emotionally shaken and Cassian, when he arrived to get her, was rushing her to go.
2: "Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, Director."

Baze Malbus (Wen Jiang)

2: R2-D2 and C-3PO make a cameo.
2: Chirrut. When he walks out. And...
