    Glad you liked it, Hector. I thought it was a fun little movie, too.

    My opinion is going to forever be that the poor box office could have been for any number of things, but it wasn't because it was a bad movie.

    That fun little movie had a $275 million budget, ouch.

    I think if they ever do the sequel, make it much lower budget, it would work...

    Yes, yes, yes!!! I'm shocked at how highly the internet people rate Rogue One. It is enjoyable, but really lacks the spirit of adventure, wit, and swashbuckle.

    Again, yes. And there may be significant reasons it felt like an old Roy Thomas Star Wars Comic.

    Screenwriter John Kasdan tweeted:

    When I was growing up , there was a stack of Star Wars Marvel comics in my grandparents house in Michigan that, I assume, belonged to my brother. It remained there, in exactly the same spot, for twenty-five years. I really wanted the shoot-out on the landing pad at Kessel to evoke the feeling of those wonderful Marvel comic covers from the 80s, Han and Lando, their blasters blazing. I think Ron Howard achieved that and then some. Seeing those three guys beneath the Falcon is the absolute realization of that particular childhood fantasies. Thank you Ron Howard and George Lucas.
    Based on this, I'd say they absolutely succeeded in capturing that old Marvel feel.

    I also thought Han's white vest and gloves in the beginning reminded me a lot of the Russ Manning newspaper strips. Don't know if it was intentional, but I also got a lot of the newspaper strip feel with this film.

    It's on my Netflix queue...I plan to watch it, but I don't have my hopes up. Still don't like Ehrenreich .

    CGI Cushing doesn't bother me, but otherwise I am right there with you. I'd rather see the Obi-Wan standalone or a Solo sequel than find out the conclusion of the new trilogy of I had to choose.

    I'm a big fan of Rogue One. I really like the movie's tone, the characters and the story.

    To me, it had the feel of a WW2 movie about a small unit's operations against a superior force. That was my reason for liking it.

    The last five minutes were my reason for liking it.

    Well, that, too. Hahahahaha

    I also liked realizing it was all about the "crawl" from Ep 4.
