  1. I will try to keep this as vague as possible. I liked it. Felt different than the other movies, but that was the plan. It is a small mostly self-contained story that is an important part of the bigger picture. I liked all the nods to A New Hope and their effort to keep the continuity between the films, even if it looked a little off sometimes. It was nice to see Vader in action I always pictured as a child, even if it was only for a short time. Some of the dialogue was a little rough. The music seemed off, but was not bad, just different from a Williams score which is as much a part of Star Wars as the Skywalkers. I will see it again and if I was giving it a score, felt like a B-/C+. A nice appetizer for the main course of Episode VIII next year. Since this was a dirty dozen type movie in Star Wars clothes, I hope they make the Obi-Wan/Unforgiven type western. McGregor was one of the best parts of the prequels and I would like to see him in the role one more time.

  2. In terms of movie prequels go, this should be the template for all future prequels in film.

    Contained a small story that is vital to the larger scope and enhances the picture(s) that have come before it. As a stand alone film I’d give it a solid A- but as far tying into A New Hope goes, it hit all the right motions.

    That entire 3rd act and its epilogue are the most story based action filled sequences since Empire Strikes Back. Originally I thought they would treat this as a small scale film but was pleasantly surprised even though none of the central characters from the OT are in the foreground, it moved at a great pace.

    That Vader scene at the end, good lord. Makes me want to watch ANH immediately, which is EXACTLY what a prequel should do!

    Factoring in the story elements to tie into ANH and the rest of the trilogy, I’d give this a: solid 9/10

    Well done Lucasfilm/Disney. Star Wars and Marvel films can’t be brought down. I thought for sure, with all the troubling details from the production (reshoots, rotating writers, etc), this movie would be a poorly constructed disaster but I’m blown away how competent and great it is.

  3. I wish i wasnt at work when y’all were doing this. I went to see this last night and i loved it. Im really curious to hear what y’all think about the VFX cameos. absolute raising of the old and dead in a wonderful way. i think this really tiesin nicely to, a new hope.
