Rogue One: Pure Magic.

So, I've not been to a great many movies in the past year, but I did manage to get out with my kids and see Rogue One.

This is what Star Wars is all about for me. Great story, Vader being Vader. Just an epic Star Wars tale that really changes the understanding of the OT and what the New Hope really is all about. Sure it's still about Luke and the Return of the Jedi by the end of it, but WOW! Far better than the prequels and I actually liked it better than Force Awakens. All around, I'm just pleased.

What did you think?

I loved it. The Force Awakens didn't do much for me - I like my Star Wars more like Empire and less like the Marvel writers re-did A New Hope. This is what a prequel should be.

I thought all the characters were developed enough. The CGI ones didn't bother me - one was a bit rough, but I'm more impressed they can do that than nitpicky. The story was set up to flow pretty well right into ANH.

Vader was epic, but K2SO steals the show for me.
