    I initially saw it in 3D, which was a mistake, because so much of it was dark and gloomy. Apart from that, none of the new characters were particularly interesting, the villain was weak, it lacked the whimsy that made previous Star Wars movies great, it had little to no suspense, the final space battle wasn't really anything we haven't seen before, and none of the new planets left much of an impression. I watched again today for the second time and liked it better this time around. In fact, I liked some elements better than 'The Force Awakens'. In short, I enjoyed it enough this second time that I give it a marginal passing grade.

    I have three problems with Rogue One. Only one of them is a big deal.

    1: Leia looks terrible. They did such a great job with Tarkin, he's not remotely perfect, but a great, necessary addition to the film. Perhaps it's because he has such a large role? You'd think Leia's would have been an easier design considering its only a few seconds. They should have used Billy Lourd as he actress so the face would have been similar.
    2: Darth Vader sounds goofy and not at all his menacing self. He sounds like a fat guy who's just finished a giant meal and is struggling to talk through digestion.
    "Be careful not to choke on that chicken wing, Director Krennic."
    3: The thing that is actually a big deal. Fan service. C3PO and R2 don't need to be shown in this film, and C3PO's stupid comment about about not being told anything is unnecessary. Bail Organa is an amazing character, but the goofy, epic music when he enters the rebel briefing is so out of place. Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba are stupid, they're stupid in ANH and their stupid on Jedha. The best thing about the two is when their limbs are removed. And like I mentioned, Tarkin is great. He's such an important imperial figure, future administrator of the Death Star, that he should be there, but Leia doesn't need to be. They added it for a memorable ending that would shock and surprise fans. It worked. And though I love Rogue one, this nonsense needs to stop and some originality should be in Disney's future plans.

    I enjoyed Rogue One in the theatre. Though since it’s been released I notice that it does sit on my shelf more compared to other Star Wars films. I don't hate it, but I'm not as pumped to watch it as the others. I think the main reason why is because as a spin off it lacks the elements of a traditional Star Wars film e.g. lightsabers, Jedi vs Sith ect.

    I’m not a director by any means and maybe I’m just too much of a filthy prequel fan but…how cool would it have been if, say, Cassian instead of being just another Han Solo-like character was instead a retired Jedi Knight like Kanaan? Imagine a battle on Scariff where Cassian is in the base and fends off against Sith assassins/Vader’s Inquisitors or maybe even Vader himself as Jyn raced to get the plans and fought Krennic herself. My ovaries might have just exploded in the theatre.

    But such a move wouldn't make sense within the context of the film. Rogue One is about the world where there are no Jedi and people have to save the galaxy without any Force users. Also, such a move would have completely undermined what the team has done before the battle of Scarif. If a former Jedi had come to the rescue, the most basic purpose of the film wouldn't have been fulfilled.

    I actually liked Cassian's character a lot more than I expected. He was a Rebel soldier, but also kind of questionable.

    I know, you're right. Rogue One is a spin off story about the non-Force users saving the galaxy. That's probably the main reason then why I don't like it as much as the other films personally. It felt a bit like going to see a Pirates of the Caribbean film (which I've never done since the first one) which doesn't have any pirates in it. But I get it, its a spin off tale about rebels - I just couldn't help but miss the elements of a traditional Star Wars film that weren't there. But that's just me.

    Don't CHOKE on your own aspirations was cringe worthy, it is a dad joke. Evidently Vader really practiced on his puns between Rogue one and Star Wars. I find your lack of faith disturbing was the height of his witty career. Other than that, I can't fault the movie too much, I reeeaaaly enjoyed it.

    Not sure if this has been addressed before, but what's bugging me is the attitude change from Jyn and Cassian between being on the ship from Eadu to their talk on Yavin. They're at each other's throats on the ship but are OK with each other on Yavin. I'm struggling to get an explanation in my head about that. Cassian had a change of heart off screen?
