The guys on Collider mentioned how Gareth Edwards does a really good job of showing scale in his films, especially Godzilla.

He nailed it as far as showing how massive the Death Star really is.
I really like Edwards as a storyteller and I think he's gonna kill it on this film.

For anyone looking for an interesting watch, check out Monsters (not the sequel). Super low budget scifi thriller that's a lot of fun for what it is.

Yeah, I re-watched Godzilla the other day, and it actually gets better with every viewing. The way that story is told is really, really cool - where Edwards decides to cut, get out of scenes, come back to them, etc. is so expertly done, and always leaves you wanting more. My only complaint is killing off Cranston's character so early. That was a fatal error in my opinion (no pun intended).

True, but I also applaud him for having the guts to do it. Also, the intro scene that depicts his mother's death, is extremely well done. Really hit me in the feels.The movie falls apart in the human interactions, when the focus goes from the strain between a father and son, to then relying on a useless Elizabeth Olsen and the mailed in performance of Aaron Taylor Johnson (who I really like). But nearly every scene with Godzilla was pretty well done.

Wasn't that the test firing?
It was a "demonstration", if I remember correctly. They'd probably tested it themselves before demo'ing it to the Rebels.

I believe it was a demonstration of it at its full power. So I guess they could get away with it as long as it was a smaller planet or moon.

Edit: I see that this has been addressed.

It was. Tarkington said to Leia, "we shall now test this station's destructive fire power on your home planet of Alderaan".

But I wonder... She seemed to know what to expect when he said that, so it could be possible the Empire had tested it already.

I actually haven't seen Godzilla since in theaters, would be interesting to give it another watch. Enjoyed it the first time around though.

Well they knew that it was a secret weapon and had the plans at that point so it is possible she knew what it could be capable of

And that is all they need to set the time of the movie. Hell have that on an business card as you walk in the theater or as a break out in the corner of the poster.

I mean if dune came with a glossary cheat sheet.

When I heard the unknown voice explaining her list of charges, I took that to mean she was captured by the Empire as a result of stealing the plans or trying to steal the plans--as in, those weren't pulled from her backstory, but what she was being charged with as a result of the events of this movie. The movie has a darker feel, so I could see it not having a 100% positive ending.

Notice he said test ... destructive power. They're not testing the laser or its effectiveness (that's already been done, which we shall see in Rogue One) they are testing its destructive power. "Just how big of a planet CAN we blow up!?"

My assumption is previous tests started with asteroids, then moons, then smaller planetoids... Alderaan may be huge and they want to see if the death star can take it down.

Noticed something new watching the Blu-Ray... At the end when Rey is looking for Luke she has a blaster strapped to her leg. Reminded me of Luke in empire when he knew the force, but still had the blaster.

Rofl! So my middle child (she's 9)... We're playing a family game after dinner and she had to excuse herself for the bathroom (#2)... She comes out of the bathroom and looks at us as says, "tell that to Konji-Club!"

I about died!
