My review of Rogue One, A Star Wars Story:
Princess Perspective (that means I'm a girl and I like Star Wars, but don't know tons about the characters, backgrounds, ships, etc. It's entertainment. I appreciate it and love the pop culture tied to it.)

1. Visually beautiful. Definitely something for the big screen don't wait for home viewing.
2. Cool new droid. Very C3PO sarcastic personality, but braver.
3. Storyline..eh. We all know how that Deathstar thing plays out. Star Wars always has the basic good v. Evil. The long lost father part was a bit underwhelming.
4. Didn't really connect with any of the characters (but that's probably a good thing) except the blind guy. He was awesome and really loved his connection to the force.
5. Wish they would have shown a bit more with the new stormtroopers, the C2-B5 droid (what happened to him?), and the jabba wannabe mind reading thing. Kinda skipped over that stuff unless I missed something during my potty break?
6. This film showcases how useless stormtroopers are. WOW! Yes, they have that reputation. But this is even worse. Perhaps to help showcase the new Troopers?
7. Forrest Whittaker..nice job. Didn't realize it was you at first!
8. Last scene.. surprising, but make sure you check the credits. Optical illusion.
9. Definitely a "guys should love it" film. Lots of ships, action fighting, etc.
10. I prefer wookies and ewoks with my Star Wars.


I have a few more thoughts on the film, but that may give away too much and sound like I didn't like it. I DID like it. I think it gives a nice dose of non-offensive-to-the-franchise Star Wars to the fans in anticipation for the next movie.
