    I rate it right behind the original trilogy.

    The Rogue One is my only favorite Star Wars from Disney.

    Rogue One was my least favorite (of the Disney era) upon first viewing, but that's largely because the first third is such a mess, so it made a bad first impression. When I watched it again, the first third didn't bother me as much because I knew it would get better.

    Ranking these films is always tough for me because so much of it depends on my mood. And even when I really like a film, if I've seen it too often, it's likely to slip in my ranking just because I'm tired of it. For example, ANH is obviously a good movie, but I haven't even watched in several years because I've just gotten tired of it. So I'll just say I like all of the recent SW movies, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and I'm just glad that we have 5 enjoyable new films in the franchise, when I thought we wouldn't be getting any new films after ROTS.

    I liked R1 very much. The "sadly" part is due to my disappointment in the overall quality of Disney SW.

    The most "Unlike" any other SW movie , yet still great in its own right.

    Mission above all else, the grittiest, most self-sacrifice, most courageous scenes of any SW movie.

    A nod to the Rebel Special Forces....the infantry....

    Rogue One beats the ever-loving crap out of all the other Disney Star Wars stuff. A woman who actually has a history of being rebellious and has a father who is intertwined with The Empire begrudgingly is infinitely more interesting than a nobody who just happens to be the most perfect force-user in the history of the galaxy.

    I was really surprised just how uncompromising R1 was, didn't expect that at all.
    It definately showed Star Wars in a new Light (at least on the big Screen)...grittier, less friendly.
    Would rate it slightly above TFA as the best Disney-Era Star Wars Movie :)

    Without a Doubt, yes.
    They just overdid the Cloe-Ups from CGI Tarkin

    Rogue One and Solo are easily the two best Disney Star Wars movies.

    I wouldn't say it is THE BEST of all of the Star Wars films, but I will say it is easily the best of the Disney created Star Wars films. It was a nice change of pace, having a non Jedi-centric story to tell, even if The Force was still involved, as it always is. It raised the stakes and made the characters more relatable, I feel. It also gave us yet another droid to fall in love with, even if fate yanked them away in the end. Speaking of end, I should not have been surprised by it, but it still came as a shock, even though it tied up any loose ends created by the film itself.
