I saw the news of this last year. I was like meh.

We've heard the stories before. But do we need another prequel movie. We've had phantom menace and see what that got us :P

Then I saw the new trailer 

Sumofabeech. I got goosebumps

Hmmm.. is it just me or is there a problem with all the embedded youtube videos not loading??  ???

Anyway, I am a little surprised with the lack of hype and excitement over this film. And frankly, the trailer didn't really get me all that excited. But Donnie Yen does look kinda cool though. The rest of the cast doesn't look half as charismatic or engaging. Vader will be a big hook but hopefully, they dun overuse him in the film.

...

Not just you, same on my Mac with Safari… there’s some problem with the youtube api call…


Strangely, not an issue with Firefox on the Mac  ???

... The rest of the cast doesn't look half as charismatic or engaging. ...

You’re obviously not a fan of Chalet girl… I am, think she’s gorgeous, in a traditional English-girl sort of way ;D

By the way, you avatar is 404’ed, you might want to fix it :P

There's something about seeing the imperial walkers in a tropical forest setting which is very stark - more gut-wrenching than the cutesy Endor forest. And seeing the Star Destroyers over a planet's atmosphere. It feels almost like a Vietnam war movie and less distant than in previous instalments.

I think that's what gave me the goosebumps. That and Donnie.

Final Rogue One Trailer.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/sC9abcLLQpI&fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/sC9abcLLQpI&fs=1</a>

Still dun does it for me. The premise of the movie (set between ep 3 and ep 4) is about a group of rebels trying to steal the plan for the death star rt? I guess they are trying to stop the empire from building it. But from ep 4, we know they fail. So what's the pt of this movie again?  ???

Is anyone still buying 'the journey instead of destination' thesis of storytelling? Lucas tried that with the ep 1-3 and he din really succeed, so why should we believe this will be a hit? Is the Star Wars franchise really that 'fatigue proof'?

ESB. It is a journey. About loss and sacrifice for a greater good. Not seeing it as a single show but as a series makes sense to me.

So I imagine it can be a powerful and moving story. Mads Mikkelson

Let’s hope the storytelling isn’t a let down :)

I just bought tickets for 16 Dec 3D Dolby Atmos hall. Seems not popular and not fill up. Is there something I should be aware?

Remember a scene in A New Hope, Mon Mothma looking downtrodden as she tells the assembled rebels that many have perished delivering the plans of the Death Star to them? This is that story. I lapped it all up like an over enthusiastic puppy. Everything I want in a Star Wars movie is in here and more, although it isn't perfect.

That's it. I have seen all the good films this year and this one will definitely land up in my Top 20.
