Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ★★★★

Rogue One is an anomaly. It’s simultaneously overrated and underrated depending on how you look at it. I don’t see it as a top three Star Wars movie like many do, but I also don’t feel like it gets enough love.

Easily one of the most beautiful Star Wars movies to date. The cinematography was breathtaking and I loved looking at it. This movie is also able to tell its own story, whilst sticking to Star Wars lore.

I love many of the new characters introduced. Director Krennic is one of my favorite villains in all of Star Wars. K-2SO is laugh out loud funny. Chirrut Îmwe is such a breath of fresh air as far as force users go. Cassian Andor is really interesting and I can’t wait to see his backstory in the upcoming Andor series. Jyn Erso is also a solid lead

We can’t talk about characters though without mentioning Darth Vader. I got chills everytime he was on screen and seeing him go bezerk in his famed hallway scene is always a joy to witness. 

I love Rogue One and while it’s not my favorite Star Wars movie, it’s always a rewatch I look forward to. Happy belated Star Wars day everyone, and may the fourth be with you all!
