Oh my gosh guys! I have been waiting for this film for MONTH'S on end, and I FINALLY got around to seeing it. This movie was WONDERFUL!😍 It was everything I've ever wanted from a Star Wars movie.
The only small problem I had with it was I felt the film was just a little too rushed. I would have liked for them to give the other character's a little more backstory, because I found alot of them to be quite interesting, especially the Death Troopers! I'd love to know more about them. But you can only fit so much plot and exposition into a film, plus they'll probably cover them in some book's or comics. Maybe even in Star Wars Rebels.
I LOVE this movie! If you haven't seen it yet I urge you to do so.
(SPOILERS AHEAD! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!)
Alrighty then. If your still here, we're going to get into rhe real juicy stuff. My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE
part of the movie was the ending with
Darth Vader. I LOVED how he just goes in there solo (ha! See what I did there😜) and kicks some major rebel ass!
That scene was so beautifuly shot. It just starts off with a dark hallway, then you here that slow ominous breathing, and then that's when it happens. BOOM! His lightsaber ignites, and the carnage begins! I could watch that scene over and over again and NEVER get bored of it!
It was so perfect!
The other scene was when Director Krennic (or however the hell you spell his name) visits Vader in his caslte on Mustafar.
For the first time (on film at least) you got to see
Vader out of his armor and vulnerable. You get to see him as nothing more than an empty shell of his former self, but when the suit comes on he's Dath Vader, Lord of the Sith again!
I enjoyed how the scene panned out with Vader and Krennic. At first you can see that he's completely intimidated by Vader. You can see his nervousness and hesitation, but as Krennic gets more confident with Vader, he almost arrogantly asks Vader if he'll put in a good word for him with the Emperor. That's when Vader puts him in his place and reminds him just who he's talking to.
As Krennic starts choking and collapses on the ground, Vader turns around, hand in the infamous choking position says "Be carful not to choke on your aspirations Director.".
I. LOVE. THAT. LINE!
It was delivered so precisely and perfectly! It just goes to show, Darth Vader steals the show with every scene he's in.
Speaking of Vader, I want to see more of his castle. They came out with a Rogue One visual guide book that explains a little bit about it, such as [The Emperor ordered Vader to live on Musafar overlooking the very place he was defeated by Obi-wan and where he thought he had killed his wife Padme as a constant reminder of his falures]. But I personally would like to know more about it.
The final thing I'd like to talk about is the presence of Governor Tarkin in the film. To me it makes perfect sense, because he had such a
huge influence in rhe making of the Death Star.
Since the death of Peter Cushing (R.I.P.) they obviously had to improvise. So they did an amazing job of retreating his face using CGI, and they got a highly talented voice actor to portray him. I mean you could barely tell his face was CG they did it so well. I loved every scene with him in it. Tarkin is one of my favorite villains in all of the Star Wars universe.
Any who. Time to wrap this up. I personally adore this movie. And once again, if you haven't seen this movie yet, GO SEE IT NOW!!!!! If you're a true Star Wars fan I guarantee you'll love this film.
Thank you, and may the force be with you.
