Just saw it and it is really freaking good. Most sideline stories don't fair well, but this movie was impressive.
I'd tweak one thing though...
Needs more K2SO
Posted by hydorah whoever wants to see it, don't bother with the 3D version.
There was barely one scene where i noticed the 3D effect, and the movie is rather dark and the 3D glasses make it even darker
Posted by hydorah I just came back from seeing it and wow! it was pretty good!
I'd say it was at least as good as Empire. Possibly the best star wars movie to date.
They finally got rid of all the neverending references and hommages to the old movies and delivered a solid story.
The best movie of 2016 for me.
Only some minor drawbacks I can think of : the whole movie was pretty dark and I could barely make out the actors sometimes and the CGI faces (tarkin and leia) are really too creepy. I'd rather they didn't show Leia's face at all.
This was put up on Netflix a few weeks ago and I've already watched it three times in the past week. Probably one of the most subtle and touching films I've ever seen, without being at all preachy or draining. On the surface it seems like a pretty fun and
