What if they don't agree? Just do it your own sweet way. No need for a herd...

There's even Coruscant when Jyn Erso is about 4 years old (and yes it's been confirmed)

Just saw the movie for the first time tonight. The fangirling started when the Death Star first fired, heightened exponentially when Mustafar appeared, kicked into overdrive when Vader came on-screen, and didn't let up until the end. The whole battle of Scarif, I had my knees drawn up to my chest, grinning like a madwoman in pure glee. And then the Death Star showed up and I instantly knew what was going to happen. Went right from to OH NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOO and actually cried a little when Jyn and Cassian were hugging on the beach...
...and then went right back to a slightly horrified grin at Vader's end scene.

My mom and I both said: "I loved the movie! ...and then EVERYBODY DIED, THAT'S NOT OKAY. >_<" Other than that, the movie was everything I wanted to see in a Star Wars movie and then some. And on a visual level, dang...yes, Krennic, it is indeed beautiful. All of it.
"'But why,' some say, 'choose the moon? Why choose this as our goal?' And they might well ask, 'Why climb the highest mountain? Why, thirty-five years ago, fly the Atlantic?' Why click some random person's referral link?'"

Good fun reading this, as I suspect that I'm a great deal older than you, let me share this; When seeing Vader cut down Old Obi-One in E4 I had a similar feeling as i suspect you experienced when "Everyone died". R-One is indeed dark in that aspect. What happen to me was that it brought back an instant flashback from Mon Mothmas mission briefing in RotJ "... many Bothans died while retrieving this information ...". Maybe an odd connection to do, as it is about a whole other Death Star . . .

George Lucas stated at Celebration that Star Wars e4 was mostly a "coming of age" film, a threshold to adulthood and by that dealing not only with issues of growth but also about separation and even death. My wish is that the Movies will have somewhat of a mature take on it all . . .

My personal take on R-One is, well no mystery on this forum, that it embeds and evolves the heritage from ESB, and as such is a worthy homage to the OT movies.

I really enjoyed Rogue One. I enjoyed the fact that is was about the war and people fighting it, and the ones who made sacrifices to ensure victory. I thought the characters were quite well done, the effects were good for the most part, it helped fill a plot-hole the original film held, and they had a nice short treat for the fans. It's not perfect, and there are things that could've been changed, but I think it was a great film for this era. Outside the original trilogy, I'd say it's my favorite SW film.

Big projects like that require large teams of scientists who are monitoring each other and are being monitored by imp intelligence 24/7 (welcome to the Empire) and the said design flaw is the only thing he could've passed under the radar.

Quote:
1. Galen & Lyra Erso look dirtier than pigs, if he's such a genius engineer why doesn't he make a water extraction machine?
You'll find that being dusty doesn't get in the way of life. Character development is great here.

Quote:
2. Lyra Erso being hysterical, what chances does she think she has against a group of armed people?
She's acting on emotion, not reason. Common occurrence in stressful situations for many people.


Quote:
4. The blind guy should have been a jedi and have an epic duel with Darth Vader - all the public would have loved that..
No, the planet is ripe with imps and they would have most likely found out about the monk (if he were a jedi instead of just a force sensitive). Most of the remaining jedi lived in seclusion and remote places.

Quote:
5. The Imperial droid saying " i'm taking the prisoners to be imprisoned in the prison" . LAME! Pathetic!
Far from being the 1st lame droid model. Their intelligence is made to not exceed their function.


With that out of the way, Rogue One was awesome and I wish that new SW trilogy were more like it and less like dropping us and characters with little or no background story into the heat of action, Kylo Ren's whimsy teenager identity crisis (TEH TRU darkness and freedom from paternal advisory) and so on.
