    i agree with bruce 100%, i think rogue one is a much more nuanced movie than the force awakens.

    Something funny happened while me and my brother watched Rogue one, in the opening scene where Director Orson Krennic and the 6 soldiers surrounded Galen Erso, my brother and I decided to make a meaningless comment we pointed to the two soldiers on the outer of the group and said "that one is you and the other is me" little did we know that those same two soldiers would accompany Orson throughout the whole film killing multiple characters If I recall only to be killed by jyn and captain Andor in the last 15 minutes of the film. just thought it was a funny little thing and felt like it was some sort of side story as those same two soldiers accompanied the director throughout the film.

    I thought Rogue one was pretty great (Especially the part on the beach). I do think Tarken was necessary for the movie but they should have shown him from a distance/from behind since people entirely CGI based never look great. Leia was completely pointless though. All they need was her voice and to not show her face and we'd know who it was but instead they wasted money and time  making a CGI Leia that really didn't look great. 

       Definitely enjoyed hearing your guys thoughts on this since I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a young kid. I found your thoughts on the Force pretty interesting as well Lawrence. Although I think the transition from "Space wizards" to simple tricks does kind of make sense. During that time period most people thought that the force/jedi were just a myth and so they talk about it almost like Ki/Chi as no Jedi's are known to exist at this time (Obviously Obi wan and Yoda are alive, but they're in exile/hiding). I think the blind dude was a great addition to the franchise, he's probably the first example of a force sensitive who isn't actually a jedi/sith (except maybe Maz Kanata). There are a large number of force sensitive people who aren't jedi/sith so I think it was nice to finally see someone who senses/understands the force and at times seems protected by it. 

       Anyway I should stop waffling. Great movie and great podcast, keep it up guys.

    I enjoyed Rogue 1 and they did a good job of giving all the characters a little backstory so you could understand a little bit of their motives and made you care/relate to them a little. Except for the pilot who defected from the Empire. It didn't really explain why he did that and what his motives were, which was a little annoying cuse he's willing to go on this really dangerous mission for the Alliance and ends up dying. The others it gave you a little something to go on, even if wasn't much. Or did i just completely miss that moment?

    For me I feel that Rogue One is easily one of my favorite Star Wars. The prequels came out throughout my childhood and were only cool as a kid. Watching them passed the age of 13 makes you realize how much of a heaping pile of shit they are. The originals for me are good but I don't have the nostalgia fueled love that people who grew up with them have. I have a problem with a lot of the people in my generation who love the series religiously. When I say religiously I mean it literally, most of them love the series because their parents told them they were cool at a young age and so the idea just stuck. Episode 7 wasn't that great besides the amazing use of effects. The protagonists in that movie being minorities felt to me like Disney was trying to be progressive just for the critical response. The plot was recycled and the movie's only purpose was to introduce the characters for this trilogy and show off old ones so that a movie theater full of people can go ape shit that a character from a previous movie made an appearance. What was refreshing about Rogue One is that there was a beginning and an end. The characters were just your average rebels which made them more relatable to me. It took the combined efforts of a rebel fleet and the protagonists to accomplish their goal not just some space wizard who learned they had powers a week ago. The fact that everyone served their purpose to the very end was amazing. Seeing everyone die the way they did was gritty which is so different from the other films. Even knowing everyone was doomed I was left surprised by the sheer carnage displayed throughout the movie. All in all the only two scenes I can complain about are Darth Vader’s dumb ass pun and C-3P0 and R2D2’s cameo. Again, this is an opinion coming from someone who is 18 and likes the original trilogy but is not in love with it. These are all my personal opinions so feel free to agree or disagree with me as long as you aren't a dick about it.

    James' claim that the Prequels are better than the Hobbit films is why I love him so much. I disagree with him a lot, but he's always got an interesting opinion and he sticks to it.

    I get that it's harder to talk while playing a game, but I kinda miss the gameplay in the background, the nonsense for the sake of nonsense indian tv show is annoying. I mean they don't even need to be playing it, they could, or someone in the control room could.

    People need to stop looking at the switch as a console that you can take on the go, and more as an incredibly powerful handheld that can also run AAA games at home

    I'm so glad I watched this. I have the exact same metaphor for Rogue One as James. It's like a roller coaster ride. I've been on a lot, so I can tell where the twists and turns are, but it's still a good ride. In the first two scenes of the male lead, I knew exactly who they set him up to be.

    As far as the switch goes, people keep calling it a console, but it's actually a portable console that can be docked. It's a huge difference. People always gave me shit, but Nintendo's console release has always been Console followed by portable and that's what they're doing now. They've always done their portable consoles right. The portables have always had great third party games, even if they're not huge games from big companies.

    I'm not going to remember the new Star Wars movie as "Rogue One: the story of the brave group of rebels who got the plans to the Death Star, but more so as "Rogue One: The Battle of Scarif" because of how the third act is really what makes the movie compared to what I thought was a very mediocre first half or so. What I love about R1 is that it takes something mentioned in episode IV and presents it in a well-executed and entertaining manner, as opposed to what the prequels did with the Clone Wars, while not imposing itself on the greater Star Wars story. I can appreciate more than anything that the Battle of Scarif is something I have the ability to watch and enjoy if I choose to do so, however I definitely think I'll skip straight to it the next time I watch the film. Solid 7/10 for me.

      As someone who prefers LotR to Star Wars; The Hobbit was worse for me because they stretched a very thin story into like 10 hours while also taking everything great about the LotR trilogy (i.e. characters, chemistry, practical effects, compelling story telling) and turned it into a boring and bloated cartoon mess. Watching those CGI dwarves ride those CGI goats up that CGI mountain hurt.

    Just seen on GameBeat that the UK game retailers are starting the Switch pre-order price at £399. This would kill this as a buy for me. I'm not a huge Nintendo fan, as others in the comments, but the portability is a huge selling factor for me since I would like to play in my lunch break at work.


    If it's £250+, I'm sorry Nintendo, but I'll be out.

    Lets all hope the switch IS about 200 dollars. Since we all knew it wasnt going to hit the benchmark of other current gen systems. The best hope they have is to make it as accessible as possible by pricepoint. I havent bought a nintendo product since N64 but even with the lackluster stats i will buy a switch if its around 200 dollars simply for Zelda, Mario and hopefully a new metriod game.

    Rouge one was lackluster. Like does anyone else not think thhe new Star Wars movie run needs to be darker. i know Star Wars needs to be palatable for new Star Wars fans so I can understand TFA but I thought rouge one would be the dark answer to TFA. It honestly was corny. 

    • Bennetas FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Rogue One was dark in comparison. Empire was grim and had the most dark tones before R1. You can't just make things darker, this is not batman. Plus that last seen with Vader was incredible and super dark. Even Adam pointed that out. You clearly had expectations walking in that were not met. If you have ever watched Dude Soup before you'd know that they always preach to take a movie at face value and not expect the movie to be how you imagined and then complain because you did not get exactly what you wanted. 


      Plus SPOILER:

      All the main characters die! The Death Star destroyed 2 cities!! How much darker can you get???
