    The trailers for this movie made me think this was gonna be a much more interesting movie, then it turned out most of what was in the trailers that made it look interesting wasn't in the movie at all. Now I don't believe trailers at all. This movie sucked.

    I disagree that the star wars universe is limited to the original trilogy style and characters. One of the best settings and characters in star wars can be found in the game star wars knights of the old republic. There is a wealth of lore, stories, and timeline to get new ideas for star wars films. A dark and gritty, war focused story can be done. Just look at the 2000s star wars the clone wars 2d animated films.

    Rich is literally wrong about the "Small Universe you can't expand much on"
    He's right when it comes to what the films have established, but the comics and novels (and games too) have brought a lot to the table, but the film makers and studios don't wanna get into that stuff for some reason. It aaaaalllll has to to relate to previous movies (except for maybe some random references)

    I think lots of different things could work, *if they did it well* , but it would have to be able to stand by itself and not just depend on being star wars. instead of "well at least they tried, but I guess there's not much you can do" you guys could just as easily be saying something like "well that sure isn't what they should have aimed for, but who knew *that* could turn out so well. it should have been garbage but somehow they made it work." it's all about the execution.

    I really couldn't disagree more with almost all of your critiques of this film. Yes, some of the main rebel characters were bland but other than that it felt like a Star Wars movie to me. Darker than ANH, probably on par with ESB in terms of mood. The main characters sacrificed everything for the greater good. That was the message. We knew the outcome ahead of time, but what had it cost the rebellion? And don't say Bothans because they sacrificed everything for the 2nd Death Star.
    I don't really see any of the storm troopers, AT-AT's, Vader, etc as "fan service". Those are all parts of the Empire of that era and the plot is a group of rebels stealing information from said empire. Sooooo.... those are part of the movie. The Vader scene at the end was needed because who doesn't want to see him kicking ass? The Vader scene mid movie I could have done without.
    Star Wars is a huge universe with all types of directions it can go. Yes, Rogue One was in a safe zone being set in the time of the original trilogy but I enjoy it. There really is no excuse for TFA and TLJ. They've had plenty of time to come out with a lasting story arc, characters with interesting backstories, new technology, new heroes and villains, etc. But we're left with a steaming mess of mediocrity due to boring and lazy writing. They should've just given Timothy Zahn or Kevin J Anderson a blank check to craft the new trilogy story.

    Bottom line: This movie was completely unnecessary. I feel like Disney only made it because they didn't own A New Hope at the time. They only gained ownership of that specific film when they bought Fox because Fox wouldn't sell the original.

    Star Wars universe is incredibly wide, just read some books from Karpyshyn, Luceno or Zahn or play some Kotor game or SWTOR. You don't need to have storm troopers, rebels etc. in each film. I don't understand why do we need still have this era around Battle of Yavin. That story was closed by original trilogy. And it should stayed that way.
    Prequels were fine in some way but terrible in another. Sequels are total mess, story is going nowhere, characters are just empty boxes for stupid scripts...Just leave this era and let it be...The old republic has so much to offer...

    This was such a fucking boring movie but... as much as i hate to admit it. i fucking love the last 15 minutes. I think the last 15 minutes are the BEST any star wars movies have to offer. But the rest was a snoozefest. Star wars has officially gone down the shitter. It's beyond redemption at this point

      Didn't like the Princess at the battle site at all. Really makes zero sense why a senator of the imperial senate would be seen exiting in HER ship from a Mon call star ship. That really still bugs the crap out of me. The rest of it was fine in terms of action and sequence.

    Love your vlog, usually agree with everything. Except when I was 7 I watched Deliverance, fucking dark. And I LOVED IT. I watched the THING at 13...and LOVED IT.

  • Fak Enam

    Hahah, so...it's a completely new movie, with completely new characters, and a completely new story focusing on everything we HADN'T seen in previous movies. But cool, edgy geeks Rich, and Jay think it's pandering and bad because it has...what 3 or 4 quick references to things within the Star Wars universe? Things that make perfect sense and in some cases (Vader) are relevant to the story.
    Are movies no longer allowed to be prequels or have connections to other films within their same universe, according to your arbitrary, inconsistent rules? Your complaint is like throwing a fit because a Batman movie references The Joker. This is a perfect example of being try-hard and contrarian to the point of being incompetent critics. I hope you've matured since you made this video. Otherwise, you're confirmed fools.

  • Iwontgiveyou Myinformation

    I strongly disagree with some of your ponts: The movie was bad, because it was BAD. It is not because of the limitations of Star Wars, it is not because the """""fun""""" was missing.
    I am actually shocked at how little people seem not remember A Game of Thrones. It has proven that any sort of character can work if you do it right and that basically every story works of you turn up the empathy level beyond the maximum and then hurt them. that in fact hurting them helps creating empathy.
    The problem in all the ""grimm"" movies everyone is complaining about is not that they are to dark, it's that they are a) not dark enough (since nothing of consequence really happens to the protagonists, which makes them dishonest) and b) that they fail at creating enough empathy.
    I am surely not the only person that wants more media resembling (the good seasons) of A Game of Thrones, but if we permanently say dark movies fail because they were not colourful and fun enough, we won't get that (we get failed attempts at course correction like ).
    don't get me wrong I liked Guardians 2 and Thor 3, but I want something other than children movies as well

    I dont care that this is basically a fan film, if anything I want more like it. Give me something about the imperial side of this. Something serious and not portraying the empire as a bunch of clowns. Honestly, that's the worst part for me in all of this...the empire is considered super stupid and inept, so how do they manage to conquer the entire damn galaxy.

    Best way to Revive star wars

    3.) fully explain the force and stop telling the stores that have no set up so explained in other media comics, novels etc.

  • Sargent X

    The reason the Vader costume looks 'strange" I think is because it's one of the few scenes in all the movies where he's lit in such a way that he is clear and visible. Nearly every scene with Vader in all the other movies he disappears in the shadows of his own face and is obscure. Also, the resolution and clarity makes it see far more present and 'real' in the sense of it being a man in a costume. It WAS weird...like a video of a cosplayer.

    BonzoDog67 Lizardking 2 months ago

    What all this groping for answers boils-down to this: A New Hope was a Hero's Journey template, and Empire and Jedi were largely soap-operas starting from Vader's "I'm You Father" reveal.
    Rather than going scattershot and playing with tone experiments, a good way to go would be to make a new adventure soap-opera from scratch. Somewhere far removed from the Skywalker saga and not made by Rian Johnson.

    Space battle shit was the best part, though! And I like that Cassio kills some guy. If I want to see a Star Wars that's fun family friendly adventure, that's lighthearted and has lots of humor I'd watch prequels again, but this one was really refreshing.

    ArvelDreth 2 months ago

    Daisy Ridley was almost good, but her mouth was just sort of hanging open all the time and her eyes were very wide so often and it really throws me off so much. Rey as a character just feels like a failed attempt at a character, because she's simultaneously aimless (like she just doesn't have any tangible motivation as a character) and wins at everything that really matters all the time seemingly without much real effort.
    Also, if you really think that Star Wars has no room to expand beyond the tropes, themes, and visuals of the OT, please play the KotOR 1 and 2 video games. Or at least look into them. You'll see how much potential Star Wars really has as a setting.

  • G Mul

    In my opinion when the character of Felicity Jones was saved by Cyborg Forest Whitaker. They should have sticked together, taking part of a smuggler/pirate/rebel band. With all the different character introduced with their own skills. Taking on a high paid mission. And later on daddy who abandoned her comes to play. Emotional reunion, backstabbing whatever. Etc, etc, story gets quicker in action, people get more involved in the character build of these heroes. Jadi jadi ya.
    Reminds me the deathstar plans were already explained by the industrious Geonosians. So what is the role of Daddy?

    How the hell do you all bash this movie worse than Solo...?
    No, I'm genuinely perplexed by this.
    And it sort of irritates me when these three guys are like "Make it into a spy story!"
    I'm so over spy stories! Its Star WARS. I wanted to see a Saving Private Ryan Star WARS.
    And Rogue One gave me at least a glimpse of the actual WAR part of Star WARS. Because jesus the other movies certain didn't. I'm sorry but the Empire vs Rebellion is so small scale I really don't care. And we see so little of the Clone Wars in the movies it doesn't count.
    So when we got what was going to be the bloody, gritty story of Rogue One, I was excited! And I do think, out of all the Disney Star Wars movies, Rogue One is the only one that is good.
    The rest are just awful. Just... Awful.
    So it shocks me how they can bash this one so hard but not bash the others as much.

      +Sebastien McCarthy There are differing opions and I do welcome those. I did take note of some of the things they say. But then there are others I felt they didn't really explain why they didn't like it and seemed to only complain to complain.
      I do think people like Mauler are good examples of reviews done right. Yes his videos are long as sin, but they go indepth and show exactly why he thinks things either work or don't work.
      So when RLM said they didn't like the soldier oriented version and wanted a spy version, I am genuinely curious as to why and thwy simply just said "it would be cool."
      So do not take my post as out right disagreeing with them. I am questioning their logic and things that don't pass my think test.
