I clicked because I live dangerously, but could people post spoilers in spoiler tags, so that people who didn't see the movie can read people's opinion without necessarily be spoilered? Seems like an obvious rule but we never know :P

Pretty much this. It was amazing. Episode VII was a joke; f*** you, Disney.

tfa isn't even a proper Star Wars movie next to Rogue One.

Sure it's not perfect, but it fills some massive gaps and has some awesome scenes in it.

Overall I thought it was quite good, like OT good.

I don't get why people hate VII so much. It's like if it was as bad as Megashark vs Giant Octopus or Battlefield Earth when some people talk about it. I mean, sure it feels like a rehashing of previous movies with nothing new, but it's still fun to watch as a Star Wars movie. It feels like those remakes of other movies, except that unlike most remakes, it doesn't suck. I definitively like Episode VII much better than Episode I. The only thing that was fun in Episode 1 was the pod race.

But yeah, Rogue One is much, much better, IMHO, in terms of the amount of new material and originality.

Hey, that was marked properly. Don't click spoilers in a movie discussion thread!

@Sorunome :
this will spoil you: ShowHide

I'm glad they didn't go for the happy ending. Of course I was sad that Jyn died, she was a great character throughout the movie. Keeping her alive would have made little sense, and would have taken away from the pressing atmosphere the film creates. I really liked the comic relief provided by K2SO, may he rest in peace :(

What really satisfied me about the ending though is the tie-in with A New Hope. The deja-vu is strong and is a great nod to the main series. The Leia cameo was spoiled to me (blame the internet) but still unexpected. And of course the music during the ending credits was amazing as expected.

Overall I found it a great movie with much less plotholes than episode VII, with strong tie-ins to give us a very clear idea of the timeframe it plays in (it's like, a week before A New Hope at most). I hope we'll get more stuff like this, it was very refreshing.

[spoiler=ending]I wonder if the movie is really as much of a spinoff as they claim to be? Due to how it ends where IV begins, I almost feel that instead of the Machete order, we're better off going with 3.5->4->5->2->3->6->7, or if we watch them in story order, we put 3.5 between 3 and 4. But again, I could be wrong, because I never watched Episode III (yet).

[spoiler=more stuff]The star wars main line clearly tells the story of the skywalker family, while that isn't the case with rogue one (Skywalkers are just.....background characters / extreme side characters (Darth Vader and Leia)). So I'd say it being a spin-off movie is pretty OK

Saw it two weeks ago.

Well, Leia is well done indeed. Or maybe that's because we see her for half a second and she doesn't even move, but at least there wasn't any problem to be noticed. Tarkin looked like a character from Pixar though. Too much skin detail and reaction to light. Plus the fact that I don't know how they animated him but either that was bad motion capture or great "traditional animation", but it was not realistic enough anyway. In a Pixar movie, you don't care, they're all unrealistic, but here he breaks the whole coherence.

About the story, well lol yeah, everybody dies. But on the other hand, that was to be expected. They can't appear in the rest of the story since the rest of the story is already out and they're not there :P

I enjoyed watching it. As a Star Wars, there was enough space battles and enough "why we do space battles" so ok, not disappointed.
And as a special Star Wars it was even better. I mean, you don't necessarily expect everyone to die but you know that you don't have to expect these new characters to stay either, unlike in other Star Wars. It was exactly the contrary as for SW7 where fans were happy to see the old team, so when Han dies it's more of a shock. So yeah, with RO, it was just sit-and-enjoy without consequences.
And it allowed them to make more complex characters. I mean, in 1-6 the only complex character is Darth Vader. Good guy at the beginning, bad guy at the end, good guy again at the very end. All the other ones are either good guys or bad guys. Here, since everyone dies, they can all have their facets. Cassian looks like a bad guy at the beginning, killing another rebel without blinking. But in the end you see he was doing it for the rebels and stuff, and that he didn't blink but he still didn't like doing it.
