Rogue One: A Success Story. Good job Disney!

Audiences returned to Star Wars with Abrams' entertaining if unoriginal The Force Awakens. Gareth Edwards reminds audiences why we love Star Wars in the first place with his dark and exciting installment ROGUE ONE.

The film presents us with the Rebel Alliance in full swing against the insidious Galactic Empire which is rumored to be building a doomsday weapon, described in whispers as a planet killer. They plan to contact or preferably kill the machine's creator by hiring his daughter Jyn Erso to track him down. Jyn Erso (Jones) is outfitted with a motley crew of killers, spies, saboteurs, and one very snarky but badass droid (Tudyk). They are met with resistance from skeptical rebels, persistent storm-troopers, Imperial assassins, and Darth Vader himself!

ROGUE ONE is not just a s...

Putting the War in Star Wars

With The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams delivered a huge batch of nostalgia while reeling in a new generation of Star Wars Fans. Disney's plan going forward was to deliver a new Star Wars films each year - one part of the new trilogy and the other a stand-alone film set within the Star Wars universe and timeline. Rogue One is the first of those stand-alone films and it more than holds its own as it channels the sense of adventure and wonder while delivering an emotional punch that leans a bit darker and more action-oriented than the previous films.

Rogue One is essentially the story of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) who, as the movie opens, is just a child and has to watch as her father, Galen (Mads Mikkelsen in an all-too-brief role) is forcibly taken by the Empire in a group led by Orson Kren...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - Movie Review

Dark Vader: "Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, Director."

Rogue One follows Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones) a Rebellion soldier and criminal, who is about to experience her biggest challenge yet when Mon Mothma sets her out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. With help from the Rebels, a master swordsman, and non-allied forces, Jyn will be in for something bigger than she thinks.

I had my worries with Rogue One, if I must admit. After the massive success of "The Force Awakens", the universe of Star Wars has now expanded even more. There's going to be more sequels, prequels, and spin-offs every year now. Why this worries me is because I fear I'm going to be sick of theses and not really get exited anymore. Star Wars should be treated like a three year e...

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" by Yojimbo

The Rebel Alliance locate and free from captivity a young woman whose father played a key role in the design of The Empire's new super weapon.

Rogue One is set between the events of Episodes III and IV and tells the story of how the plans of The Death Star fell into Alliance hands. Rather more deliberately paced and episodic in plot than the rather more exuberant The Force Awakens, this companion piece to the original trilogy is a darker, more sober affair. The story exists very much in the grey areas where bustling melting pots of alien cultures are bullied by the nascent Empire's forces, while opposing factions still exist within the resistance and those in service to Empire may still face crises of conscience. The earlier scenes would perhaps have been better served for a little mor...
