    Obviously Jyn got extended flashbacks. I was referring more to small little one scene glimpses at the pasts of the other characters. Just a little nuggets of their past to help us better understand where they come from, not full fledged flashback sequences.

    Great point and I can agree with you there. I loved Chirrut and Baze, would have loved to have nugget(s) of their past.

    Where to start on this awesome movie.....my 2nd most favorite SW movie of them all (ANH #1)

    Loved:

    1. Since I am a military historian and lover of war movies, loved the tone and grim sense of purpose here. Jyn/Cassian's speech to the troops inbound to Scarif was incredible. So many throwbacks to other war movie favorites of mine....In "The Patriot" as Benjamin Martin asks his militia to "fire twice" at the British.....In "Saving Private Ryan" Capt Miller/Sgt Horvath's orders to the troops in the higgins boat as they approach the beach - Jyn/Cassian very reminiscent of this.

    2. Loved Gareth Edwards passion for getting the little things right. Background scenery superb, the look, sound and feel of the SW universe pre-ANH. I love how the rebel ships look used yet purposeful. The U-Wing interior reminded me SO much of the interior of a US Air Force C-130 or even KC-135 - they even had troop seats on the U-WIng (did you see them?). Watched the "Making of Rogue One" and to see/hear the feeling and passion of Edwards was amazing , he said his favorite movie of all time was ANH and he was honored to be making a movie that "touched ANH".....superb!

    3. The Rebellion. Passionate people, difficult to lead in one direction, really reminded me of the birth of the US Revolution and the Continental Congress.....Mon Mothma had a really difficult job.....we didn't get a chance to see her dedication to the cause too much, but in the R1 novel they cover her very well. She really was an amazing leader for the Rebellion.

    4. Popping out of hyperspace above Scarif....."This is Admiral Raddus of the Rebel Alliance" --- GOOSEBUMPS every time....

    5. The final sequence, from "Prepare a Boarding Party" all the way through the end of the movie, just simply outstanding. The courage and purpose of the rebel troops, the sacrifice of Jyn/Cassian on the beach, the score during this sequence is amazing. The music stopping as the rebels get to the outer door of the Tantive-4.....the only sound you hear for a couple seconds is the wailing of the siren, then the red saber igniting. Tremendous work by Edwards here!

    I did not really hate anything about this movie.....that is all....

    ANH being my favorite Star Wars film I also love Rogue One.

    I have tiny nitpicks, for some reason I still believe Jyn and Cassian could have found a ship and escaped, even though Cassian was limping, they escaped from Jedha just in the nick of time. why couldn't they escape Scarif? the shield was down as well. i guess I'm still sad to see them go.

    I wanted more Bail Organa. didn't get enough of him in Rots and now also R1, minor nitpicks... my like list out weigh my dislike list for the most part.

    I wish 3p0 and R2 were on the Tantive IV instead of on Yavin.

    More of Darth Vader's castle. To finally see the Dark Lord's abode... eye candy!

    am I going too far for wanting a scene with Vader and Tarkin?

    More cantina aliens, the famous twosome that bumped into Jyn and Cassian on Jedha just wet my appetite, I wanted more.

    At first I thought that line was ridiculous, because "Rebel" is Imperial lingo for the Alliance freedom fighters.

    But then I realized why he had to make that announcement - To clarify for the Imperials that him and his ship are part of the "Rebel Alliance" and that the Mon Calamari government had nothing to do with the incursion...

    There's so much about this movie I enjoy. One thing that pops to mind is how well written the characters were. They each have their own motivations for doing the things we do. It is very enjoyable.

    One thing I found slightly cringe-inducing was seeing Dr. Evazan and Walrusman. That took "small galaxy" to the extreme.

    Loved - basically all of it, ever since the era of Dark Forces and TIE Fighter I’ve always wanted a gritty military Star Wars movie that was about the tech, the fight, the Imperial infighting and no Jedi “mumbo jumbo”. Wasn’t disappointed at all. Would love another Star Wars movie in this style!

    Hated - one thing and it’s tiny and bizarre. But I can’t unsee it and it irritates the hell out of me!! There’s a background character on Jeddah with a big round bucket of a helmet and he is in practically every shot. It’s not even a cool helmet.

    Maybe, just maybe it’s traditional local attire and it’s lots of different characters in the same headgear... but to me it comes across as cheap reuse of a background extra who sticks out like a sore thumb when there’s so many better costumes and roles walking around (like the trench coated imperial officers). It rips me out of the movie seeing him on *every* single street. And it annoys me more knowing there’s clearly lots of street footage on the cutting room floor (like the rebel pilots in handcuffs) I’d much rather have seen, however briefly, than old cauldron head walking around everywhere.

    At first I was really sceptical about this movie, but ended up liking it a lot.

    I loved that fact that they introduced new characters with charisma....and that they actually took care of character development and arcs. Even the villains had plausible arcs. Acting was generally good. That it was ultimately a tragic story where basically evryone died made it more emotional, especially since they accomplished something. The tie-in to the OT was well done.

    Hm, I did not especially like the paranoia from the rebel leader/foster father, felt a little "too much". But, in general, it had few faults in my opinion.

    I thoroughly enjoyed R1. From start to finish it was enjoyable. Sure there are issues but no movie is perfect. It’s definitely my favorite of the Disney movies.

    My favorite part was Vader’s fight scene. I wish it was longer but it was still epic.

    All I loved in this movie has already been written... especially that orgasmic VADER SCENE (best. star. wars. scene. ever).
    Just wanted to add : the "look" of the movie itself, which was damn close to ANH look and feel. I remember the market street on Jedha, the DS look, and even the first droid we meet (when Krennic comes to Galen Erso's planet). Sooooo starwarsy.

    I disliked the Tantive docked into the Profundis. Not inline with the first words Vader says to Leia in ANH.

    I miss an actual Leia/Bail scene - even with Leia seen from back, in her white robe and with her "inimitable haircut"... I mean dad lovingly hugging his daughter, while giving her the mission to bring the DS plans back to Alderaan. Y'know, a scene that would have given us a goosebump, which would have transform itself into a huge heart attack with the final Leia scene, when we see her in the Tantive cockpit, from back again (we shiver) then she turns (we wriggle) and finally shows her face (and we all cry :) :) :) :) )

    The main characters were about as exciting as room-temperature water, but the visuals were nice.

    I just rewatched RO for the third time (first and second at the cinemas) because the movie is now on Netflix.

    I enjoyed this movie every time I saw it. Love everything. Tarkin looks a little bit artificial in the TV, in the theathers the CGI worked better but thats is not a big issue.
    Like much more of the characters now, specially Galen Erso and K2SO.
    The Vader scene in the corridor of the Tantive IV is superb! And Leia at the end looks perfect, love that CGI.

    Waiting for the Last Jedi on netflix now.

    This film is by far the best thing done since the OT. They nailed the look and feel, something the ST films couln't managed.

    There are things you can nit pick on, but if the film is a fantanticly told film they don't bug you so much. If the film itself is porley done then those nit picks grate more and more.

    My only real nit picks with RO are the Doc and his mate cameo and the the fact the Jyn didn't pick up the message. We could have just had a rock crush it or something. Not a big deal though.
