    Why all the hand wringing over liking the bad guy? The bad guys are always cooler, even to a kid! Cobra > GI Joe, Skeletor > He-man, Jason > stoned teenagers, Vader > Fleet Troopers...this is easy math

    Yeah I found it very odd after the fact how much I loved that scene and thought to myself, "Man I must be a monster for loving that scene."

    Hahahah! I think it was just so exciting because that's the ruthless Vader I wish we got to see some of in the prequels that was cut so short in his time as Vader before ANH.

    I REALLY hope Disney makes an anthology Vader film.

    a vader/emporer movie with the ORIGINAL guys while they are still alive is a no brainer.

    The voice wasn't AS off as I remembered it, but about 25% of the performance sounds like normal james and not darth....

    That scene made me hate Vader again. After his imagery even appearing on children's sleepwear, the evil gets diluted down to little more than a product brand.
    I never hated Vader, but it definitely made me fear him again.

    I watched some of the behind the scenes stuff last night and Tarkin does look more believable on the home release. It's probably thanks to the resolution not being that of the cinema to much more bring out all those extra details that stood out more. It's less distracting and the HD resolution is already nice and sharp. Not 4k, but it looks wonderful.... to me, anyway...

    So at 2:32-2:33 there is some added ship fire. So which version is this from? I don't remember any firing before the music dies down quite a bit?!?!?!?
    DEF sounds like some explosions were added at 2:32/33

    People online keep whining about no originality in new Star Wars, but the one thing people seem to love most about Rogue One is the final 10 minutes...

    Starring...

    Everything in the first 10 minutes of ANH.

    So if all the fans want is original universe stuff in Star Wars, then my social media feeds being filled with dozens of relinks to the final 10 minutes of Rogue One is sending a bad message to Disney.

    I mean, Vader stole the show, good thing it was at the end. But I really enjoyed the use of the Corvette as a battering ram. One of my favorite scenes. And the AT-CT getting its legs mowed down was also good. I also enjoyed seeing the Y wings get some glory

    I enjoyed the whole thing, I was a bit lost with the whole Saw Gerrera thing, at first I wasn't
    seeing the narrative need but I've processed it now. I knew they would butt it up against SW77 towards
    the end so people enjoy that sure, if the whole film was that I don't think fans would be as happy, it
    was not overdone and because it was short it had greater impact as the final act.

    The problem was that, to me, the whole movie didn't feel like star wars. add to it all the b ehind the scenes hollywood social drama, and it just ruined the fun for me.

    it felt like a sub par effort, that SHOULD have been a home run. but, because of all those issues, and the reshoots showing that he folk behind the scenes didn't know what to do without the controversy there to sell it..

    it not only deluded my enthusiasm for the movie pretty quickly, but it also feels like the whole movie itself just was not needed. it was simply another safe bet story for them to do that could help pay off the franchise buy.

    Well, the more SW they make the odds are there will be something for everyone.
    It's well into fractionalized fandom like Trek and all it's many flavors.
    Or Batman for that matter.

    I just think people don't know what they want. They don't like when Star Wars is too different (Prequels, TCW), but complain when it's too similar {TFA, Rebels, Rogue One). Obviously, we should just never have new stories ever because the vocal minority is always going to complain.

    He stole the show, but the Rebels stole the plans.

    Wait a second..... can Stormtroopers breathe in space? They and Vader stepped out of that busted airlock..... or do the shields generated around the ship block all that air supply stuff??
