    @tonyb I actually really enjoyed Rogue One for what it was. The characters were refreshing, if a bit underdeveloped. No single one really did it for me; it was more the way they worked together that held my attention.

    I do agree that most Star Wars movies operate on a stale, recycled narrative. This is why I recommended above that they focus on an entirely different segment of the story, given the vast trove of canon they have to draw on. I think-if anything-Rogue One has shown the producers at Disney that they can be a bit more creative with the IP , and develop it beyond the traditional tropes and narrative.

    We both Immensely enjoyed it.
    A lot of the Star Wars stuff bores me, but this one was enjoyable and not silly.

    Good movies so far, I just watched TESB 3 weeks ago.

    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Am I the only one who thought Rogue One was the worst Star wars movie of the series ?

    Frankly, the lack of imagination in script writing baffles me. Almost every Star Wars movie has the same script, different characters, and their is always a Death Star involved that needs to be blown up.

    Plus I thought the characters in Rogue One were not as likeable as other SW movies.

    I'm the exact opposite. The Force Awakens was just a bigger version of A New Hope, pretty much the same exact story, just bigger. The dude that plays the Kilo, he looks like he should be doing "I cannot believe it's not butter" commercials. A dark haired Fabo with the same acting skills, none. Horrible casting with the new, final trilogy.

    You want to take lack of imagination, that Force Awakens is the poster child.

    I enjoy all the Star Wars Movies. I'm just happy that it's still around after all these years.

    Yep, I agree. I thought Rogue One was the best of the Star Wars since A New Hope, and in many ways better because there was actual human dialogue, solid acting, and it didn't rely on (as much) the existence of certain characters...

    At least you guys are still enjoying your movies. JJ Abraham Lincoln turned Star Trek into cookie cutter action flicks wearing a Star Trek dress with references here and there. Same for the new Discovery show. Sad. The Orville is the most Star Trek thing going on around here.
