    I feel like the only time I have seen action was towards negative reviews. And even that is rare. Sorry man.

    It was probably some snob new york critic. Or Armond White.

    And Im not sure this story can accurately be called smaller. The entire future of the galaxy and rebellion hinges on the rebels stealing those plans. Without those plans the Empire would have secured its dominance and crushed the Rebellion. Its the catalyst that makes everything that follows possible.

    It's hard to get bigger than The Force Awakens. How many planets were destroyed there?

    If it is Armond White, that means the movie is awesome. :funny:

    I think we are probably going to see the biggest battle in Star Wars history. But when there are no Jedi v. Dark Siders, the soul of the galaxy isn't quite on the line. So it is a bit "smaller", in that sense. But the scale looks very big.

    Stahp, you're giving me PTSD from having to listen to a friend say they bought into the Jyn/Rey clone theory.

    Great review.

    With any big tent pole, there's always a tempory backlash and it's slowly phasing out for The Force Awakens. That movie had its faults, like any other (I won't get it intohere), but it's still a rousing accomplishment.

    Do you think Rogue One will force (hehe) people to reexamine TFA's backlash, realizing that some are taking that movie for granted? I think the internet community can be ignorant and fickle so who knows.

    I can't say if it will do that or not. I think Rogue One is a little lacking. However, I still genuinely love The Force Awakens. I don't want to make a ton of comparisons. Rogue One is a different type of movie and telling a different story. At the same time, I think there's something to be said about the film's pacing and character work.

    Nice review VileOne.

    Ah, the inevitable fall back to reality. I'm pretty much back where I was after seeing the trailers, expectation-wise. I'm looking forward to seeing it and I'm sure I'm going to find much to enjoy, but I'm not gonna go in expecting a home run.

    TheVileOne,

    Great review! Without going into spoilers, could you please answer me on how much screen time Vader has and whether he is utilized well?

    Thank you!
