1) Empire Strikes Back, 2) Rogue One

Whenever I see any of the installments of the STAR WARS franchise I am reminded of Peter Biskind's excellent book EASY RIDERS, RAGING BULLS. The two directors that Biskind singles out as assassins of the auteur sensibility that destroyed the studio system and subsequently saved Hollywood are George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. I saw the first STAR WARS film again this summer after many years and what struck me was its lock, stock and barrel embrace of militarism, something that was hard to do even in a Hollywood blockbuster coming so close on the heels of the U.S. defeat in Vietnam. ROGUE ONE is cookie cutter schlock. The final battle on the planet Scarif is decent. But this is a movie for children, or adults who want to see the same film over and over again.

Uninspired, derivative, and barely entertaining.

The movie is really good. It moved. I thought it will be intense but it is not really intense. I recommend.

Utterly dreadful. Donnie Yen is the only bright spot in this pathetic fiasco of a tired retread.
And, for 40 years since 1977, we have been wondering why Imperial stormtroopers need to wear that ridiculous armour, since it only ever takes one tiny shot to kill them.
The recent review at the BBC stating that the only good Star Wars was the very first one is correct.
A complete waste of time.

I don't care what anybody says. I love anything Star Wars! It is never about the acting. It is about the journey. It is fun, imaginative, exciting, scary and funny!

Enjoyed immensely for its diverse cast, including a strong female lead, a snarky droid, a quietly believable love story, and a plotline that is integral to the overall Star Wars story (a defiant engineer/father/rebel deliberately encodes a bug in his software that creates backdoor access to the Death Star). Despite a fast-paced beginning, I didn't add more stars for the following: it moved slowly at times; some of the special effects were obvious; and the re-animation of dead actors Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher was poorly/creepily done.

I'd say this is my #2 favorite Star Wars movie, right behind Empire. It's gritty, but humorous, it has interesting lore, likable characters, the graphics are good but at the same time feel right at home beside Star Wars, and it has one of the best action sequences in cinema.

This was one of the greatest Star Wars movies ever. It had a great background story between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Disney did a great job not taking away the classic Star Wars story while making more suitable for children. For the first time ever in a Star Wars movie was their no cussing, bad words, or creepy characters. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. Why did everyone have to die, Jyn, Cassian, the blind guy, and his friend should have survived at least and the droid could have possibly been repaired. Other than everyone dying it was great! ****
