Rogue One damn near moved me to tears.


I am secure enough to admit I teared up during this scene.



TLJ made me cry; albeit for a very different reason. Haha

Is your username a reference to ANH? I've always wondered.

Vader's scene in Rogue One is what makes me think a "Lords of the Sith" movie would do excellent. The last quarter of the book is Vader and the Emperor going ham like the scene above. And the story itself could be neatly be told in a single movie.

Yes, but was also my nickname in the Corps... I was the youngest of 4 siblings who all went A&M and a Star Wars fan... so Episode IV

C'mon people. So tried of seeing this. The only reason y'all say that is because there was lots of space battle 'splosions with X-Wings and Darth Vader killed some dudes with his lightsaber. Are y'all really going to put action (albeit good action) over genuine meaningful moments from the OT? Just having the binary sunset in IV, and the confrontation between Luke and the Emperor in VI, puts those movies way above R1, imo. (I'm assuming you're putting Empire first.)
I'm equally tired of seeing the pretentious, arrogant dismissal of people who do think Rogue One was a good movie as a bunch of mouth breathers that like 'splosions.

As if the underlying story of redemption and sacrifice mean nothing. As if Rogue One doesn't enhance the viewing of - and doesn't give extra meaning to - Episode Four.

It's not just about 'splosions. If you're tired of seeing it then you can hop off the thread. No one will miss you, I promise.

I could leave the thread, but I would miss you, and that's the problem. You see, I have a shrine built to Belton Ag and each time he graces us with a new utterance I quickly print it out and nail it to my shrine wall. Then I pray to it everyday for strength and guidance, kinda like how Kylo Ren prays to Vader's helmet.

That pictuer and scene makes me wonder a lot of things.

1. Do we think, after turning back to the light and becoming a force ghost, Anakin ever spoke to Kylo?
2. What would he have said? Surely nothing about how to be a better Sith
3. Do we think he ever visited Luke in the 30 years after?

I'm sure I could go on

The right answer is the most simple answer.

This new trilogy sucks. Period.

It's terribly written across the board. Let's just put the characters and the story to the side. And they suck.

The criticism is legitimate. The OT made it painfully obvious what the state of the galaxy is/was. The new trilogy does not. What else can be said.

I will be in the theater for Ep9 no matter what, and sincerely hope JJ pulls it off, but this has been mostly a disaster so far.

PS - Rogue One is the second best SW movie of all time. Solo is good. thanks

I guess I just watch these movies for different reasons compared to most y'all.
If only we were all as sophisticated in our taste for kids movies as you.

Not trying to be sophisticated, it's just common sense. Sing a melody off the top of your head from the OT.

Now try to sing a melody off the top of your head from R1.

Well in the EU Anakin only was a Force Ghost once, when he asked Leia to forgive him for destroying Alderaan. He only did it once, whereas Ben did it several times; I'm guessing it's because Ben had been with the Light Side for decades so he was strong enough to make the trip, whereas Anakin was a recent convert before his death. i.e. Anakin wasn't as strong as Ben.

And after ROTJ, Obi-Wan only communicated with Luke once, 3-4 years later. He said something to the effect of "the distance between our worlds is growing larger", so he couldn't make the trip anymore. So I guess those "Force physics" would deny Anakin from communicating with Kylo and Luke.

The other reason is because the current writers chose to ignore Anakin's ability to become a Force Ghost. It made writing easier for them.

Join the club, pal. I got plenty of shrines all over the place.

I gave it a star out of pity.

Dammit if TLJ didn't vacuum away all unearned enthusiasm I may have once granted to a Star Wars film on trust of the franchise.
