What if the rumors are true, and Rey is a reincarnation of Anakin Skywalker?

I think I was really really wrong and Rogue One will be an awesome movie. People are saying they love it and it is like "The Dirty Dozen".

I haven't read about a spoiler yet but I think the movie will be like this:

The main protagonist female Jyn Erso will have had a life of crime like being a thief. She is an anti-hero and is granted freedom from prison to steal the plans to the death star. She is helped by others who are either selfless heroes already or anti-heroes like Erso who have had a previous life of crime and murder. It is that all of Erso's helpers give up their lives in the end to help the rebels save lives, an act a criminal never thought they would commit. So then it will end with Erso seeing all these people die for good over evil and so she too decides to give her life to pass the stolen death star plans.

I just bought tickets to see the movie Thursday night at 7PM. I'll share how it was after I see it.

Rogue One Review

So, the movie was real great. I would give it an A- or B+.

For the criticism, I crave, I didn’t like how the back stories were as nice as they were. There was the good evidence the main hero characters were bad in the past with crime but I think they should have been juiced up with horribleness. I wanted characters that raped, murdered, and betrayed for fun. I know this is Disney but that would have been a A+ movie from me on the spot.

First the robot K2SO was kind of gay voiced as he reminded me of that dude who is gay from the TV show Frasier being David Hyde Pierce. I see it isn’t him but I didn’t like it that much. The robot character was such a hit for everyone including me but the gay feel got to me. I like Pierce but with him out I have to stay away from his characters. K2SO is a condescending assh*le who pisses everyone off but he dies for the cause which was sweet.

Then there are the love stories. Baze and Chirrut which are like Han Solo and Chewie but I felt they were gay. Chirrut was an amazing character and I wouldn’t change a thing. But Baze with the way he decides to die after Chirrut did I hated. I felt it was too bromance and gay for my liking. I would have liked Baze to have lived a little longer and to have helped in another scene of significance unlike what happens where he dies for no real help to getting the plans to the rebels. They should have had him help the mission somehow. Baze was a great character though. Like there was physically getting the plans, taking down the shield, using the satellite, communicating with the rebels. I know Baze helped with communicating like Rook did too but Baze should have gone to another location and gave his life better.

The other death I didn’t like was the way Jyn and Cassian die. I didn’t like the love angle they did. I think they did this wrong and should have had no love for Jyn other than to help all lives and of Jyn’s love of her family. Cassian could have died on the catwalk file room as we think he did with helping Jyn get to the control panel on top of the building to use the satellite to send the death star plans to the rebels. What they do is have Cassian save Jyn’s life on the roof which depowers women by making them need a man to do things. They should have had Cassian die saving Jyn for the reason of the plans getting to the rebels and of Jyn killing Orson herself somehow on the roof and by making it fun. She could have been a quick shot or had a secondary weapon that was foreshadowed earlier. She should have died alone and happy she had saved trillions from the death star and died like Saw did alone. Jyn could have died on the satellite but I did like the beach as it was pretty and she may have wanted the nice scenery to view.

What was shocking was the CGI’s. They had characters that had died like the "You may fire when ready" dude and a Leia young in the movie. I know now they could do a whole movie with computer CGI characters and it seems like a good idea. They could make tons of these "A Star Wars Story" and people will love them.

I loved Jyn. There was something about her like she looks like a furry mammal that just hit puberty. It has its attractive appeal. I really want to see her pubic hair as she has something going on.

Darth Vader was good. I liked them showing him bathing in that tube. I always wanted to know how he was cleaned. I think they could have shown off his scarred and amputee body more.

All in all the movie was great and I will have to see it again next week.

Lets all pray as Carrie Fisher just suffered a heart attack.

I feel so horrible that I said I liked the CGI as she has been bullied out of so much money from Star Wars and I think she may have been so when they do CGI of her.

I hope she is okay and this doesn't affect the making of any future movies.

Carrie Fisher is stable as reports state.

Still I read she didn't breath for over 10 minutes. This could have caused severe brain damage. She may never be the same again. I think she possible could be brain dead rate now. Real sad day, I've felt bad the last few hours over this.

My Rogue One spoiler alert:
Everyone Dies.

Darth Vader was kick-ass charging through like 20 guys down the hallway toward Leia's ship at the end. Why can't we get more of that?
I hope The Empire backed up all their data somewhere else. That was like burning down your own house because someone stole your bank account information.

It is interesting to live in a world now where we will probably never see the "last Star Wars movie ever made." The assembly line is up and running.

I'm hearing there are and I have seen some teaser leaks on the web of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Here is a vid of a retelling of someone who saw a sneak preview of one of the teaser trailers that will be out on the web April 2017 during Star Wars celebration.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Official Teaser
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB4I68XVPzQ

The trailer doesn't explain much. The Last Jedi seems to be about the rebels being hunted by the First Order. I guess this movie will have lots of fighting.

The Force Awakens is a great continuation to the Saga.

It establishes connections to the original triology, sets up the continuation thereafter and introduces a new divers cast.
You couldn't have a completely disjointed movie, with no returning characters or themes, and expect the seasoned viewer to feel connected and have the new viewer feel there is more to this saga/universe than what is just presented in this movie.

The tropes of yet another Death Star to destroy and another young prodigy as last hope are used to give this generation their feeling of the giant scope of what evil has to be defeated and the wonder and amazement that the power to overcome this evil, can grow from the seemingly weakest individual.

The quality of this new trilogy(?) will increase with the following releases, as after this introductory movie new themes and plot can be picked up without having to connect generations in this universe.

Rogue One proved that this new era in the Star Wars universe will be fleshed out with it's spin offs, in a serious way with a mature tone that was missing almost completely in the prequels.
The Star Wars future is looking bright.

I just came up with a Star Wars; The Last Jedi theory that I think others may have too but no one is saying it that I can find. My idea is Luke has a dragon head walking stick. So is this a tell of him having new force powers? What if Luke can control fire and create it like a dragons breath? Or what if the dragon head is that of the loch ness monster, so Luke can control water and create water? I think this will play on Luke either having water or fire abilities and Snoke to have the other power. So it will be Fire VS Water force abilities. Snoke's look is burned people say, so Luke may have done that to him in battle or Snoke may have burned himself as a consequence of using his fire powers. I bet AngelDeb will like this as its like The Avatar kids TV show.

What do you guys think?

Some Big Star Wars News

Three more! A whole new Star Wars trilogy with fresh characters and a different galaxy will be created by Last Jedi director Rian Johnson
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/ar ... z4xzG7oKDV

This is interesting news. I don't really understand why even connect this to Star Wars. I know that the title Star Wars will just sell tickets to a blank screen so I guess that factors in but also there must be a hint that the two galaxies would be connected in some way at some point, like a crossover happening.

I know that the idea of lazers that shoot slow and of lightsabers and no nukes is weird for us. That are some of the things that make Star Wars not like reality. There are never any sea crafts too. I would think that adding in a more realistic Star Wars galaxy would be best. There must be many hypothetical weapons that we think we can make or ones that are not cost effective or too large or slow but would be cool if made better. I know we have some crazy weapons today that would kickass in a World War but may never see combat. I guess they will have to add in light speed travel and not just make Elon Must tech. It will be interesting to hear what people have to say about everything.

Disney will never stop making Star Wars movies so that's of zero surprise to me. The assembly line is up and running so expect about one movie per year indefinitely. The Mouse is going to squeeze every dollar possible out of that franchise.

A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Force Awakens
Revenge of the Sith
Rogue One
The Phantom Menace
Attack of the Clones


Yes, I think Revenge of the Sith is better than Rogue One.
