Post your reviews or spoilers in here, and let's the the other thread continue to be speculation of other talk. This worked well for Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

TV Spot #26 - Hints to possible cameos?
Dec 07th 2016
1
I think we'll see a brief Leia cameo, right at the end of the film.
Dec 07th 2016
2
Well, my prediction was pretty accurate...
Dec 17th 2016

Rebels is so damn dope..

TV Spot #27: K-2SO is gonna be the scene stealer.
Dec 07th 2016

The soundtrack track listing is out. Time to get nerdy.
Dec 08th 2016
5
Im excited to hear this
Dec 09th 2016
6
The first reactions to the premiere have been crazy
Dec 12th 2016
7
Has anyone seen the New Yorker review? lol
Dec 14th 2016

They're either parodying their own pretense or just trolling
Dec 14th 2016

"enticingly florid dialogue" in the trilogy prequels, huh
Dec 14th 2016
10
What in the blue fuck? Was this a satirical piece?
Dec 14th 2016
11
Richard Brody is one of my favorite film writers
Dec 14th 2016
12
it was an experiential thrill simply surviving most of 1-3's dialogue
Dec 14th 2016
13
Brody's taste in mainstream flicks has always been strange.
Dec 16th 2016
35
Front half is bad...Back half is spectacular
Dec 15th 2016
14
But "The Bad" seems to have answers
Dec 16th 2016
16
It's funny - when they announced that there wouldn't be a crawl
Dec 16th 2016
22
this WHOLE movie was BASED on the 2nd paragraph
Dec 16th 2016
77
yeah replacing a crawl with planet hops defeats the purpose.
Dec 16th 2016
86
Yeah, but it doesn't serve the movie is the problem, lol
Dec 16th 2016
25
Nah Tarkin had to have a lot of time
Dec 16th 2016
59
      You know why it wasn't in a crawl?
Dec 16th 2016
74
      i wonder when the cgi will be good enough
Dec 16th 2016
87
           Vader voice was the problem for me too
Dec 19th 2016

This right here:

Agree. Wouldn't have minded losing it and focusing on heist.
Dec 16th 2016

There's a fine line between rebellion and terrorism.

Vader in the bacta tank says a LOT about his state of health.
Dec 16th 2016
52
      That scene got spoiled for me kind of
Dec 16th 2016
56

The money shot
Dec 16th 2016
18
I can't believe how many fucking....
Dec 16th 2016
23
Oh, and Donnie Yen is the fucking man.
Dec 16th 2016
24
they tied everything together so well, without it fucking up the film
Dec 16th 2016
89
It's good, but it couldda been great. I give the edge to Awakens
Dec 16th 2016
26
I absolutely loved it

Can they fix the 2nd trilogy with a 1.3, 2.5, and 3.2???
Dec 16th 2016
29
the whole Clone Wars cartoon
Dec 21st 2016
164
      once i finish rebels, im doin clone wars
Dec 21st 2016

           Just started clone wars. Pretty good! n/m

Mostly good, but (unpopular opinion) the nostalgia stuff is awful.
Dec 16th 2016
30
This
Dec 16th 2016
31
Only two of the nostalgia moments were bad to me
Dec 16th 2016
33
Eh.
Dec 16th 2016
34
      Tarkin looked like a polar express character..
Dec 16th 2016
37
      Like I said, I enjoyed the movie too.
Dec 16th 2016
38
      But they HAD to be there cause Bail Organa LOL
Dec 16th 2016
63
           For casual fans, literally none of this matters, though.
Dec 16th 2016
65
                Lmao that's Leia's pops / one of the architects of the Rebellion
Dec 16th 2016
66
                The larger story. Not this story.
Dec 16th 2016
68
                Jimmy Smits/Bail Organa actually served a purpose in the story though
Dec 16th 2016
69
                1. Nobody's complaining. 2. His appearance doesn't matter.
Dec 16th 2016
72
                For me, his presence didn't take away from the film at all
Dec 17th 2016
105
                     Me neither.
Dec 17th 2016
110
                I think Reply 71 covered my feelings on this.
Dec 16th 2016
73
                     i think it's a finer line than that though
Dec 16th 2016
90
                          The issue is the main characters

Dec 17th 2016
104
                                              Grey area is not a theme. In general, I don't care about canon.
Dec 17th 2016
111
                I laughed at the music swell on Jimmy Smits

      You've got Mendelsohn/Mads and you rely on CGI Tarkin

      RE: Eh.
Dec 16th 2016
58
      Ahh. This works for me
Dec 19th 2016
147
Dude, it's a movie that directly relates/leads up to Ep. IV
Dec 16th 2016
41
He's not complaining about cameos
Dec 16th 2016
43
100% this.
Dec 16th 2016
45
Yup.
Dec 16th 2016
53
RE: He's not complaining about cameos
Dec 16th 2016
60
      The movie doesn't change without Smits' appearance.
Dec 16th 2016
71
           "Because her dad built it" was unnecessary to the heist, too.
Dec 16th 2016
97
                Thank you.
Dec 17th 2016
102
                I've never rooted so hard for two people NOT to kiss
Dec 17th 2016

I understand all of that.

44
SON A YODA MOVIE THANK YOU BABY JESUS?!?!
Dec 16th 2016
48
man you nailed it
Dec 16th 2016
46
Tarkin was completely unnecessary fan service and I loved it
Dec 16th 2016
47
I can dig that.
Dec 16th 2016
51
You realize those people HAD to be there
Dec 16th 2016
57
SMH...
Dec 16th 2016
75
      If the Tarkin CGI was better, or Peter Cushing wasn't, you know, dead...
Dec 16th 2016
78
           I didn;t think the CGI was a BAD
Dec 16th 2016
80
           I agree that it'd have been much better with a human actor.

                I'd never heard of a Saw Gerrera in my entire life before this film
Dec 17th 2016

I was with you up until the Vader part
Dec 19th 2016
146
      Yeah, and I've honestly come around on that scene.

I loved this film, but glad it's a 1-off. I prefer fairytale fantasy Sta...
Dec 16th 2016
36
So what were the reshoots?
Dec 16th 2016
40
There are a couple scenes from the trailers
Dec 16th 2016
81
Worth it just to see the redemption of Vader's badassedness.
Dec 16th 2016
42
who was the old man that went to the bacta tank to get Vader?
Dec 16th 2016
49
just a Vader servant I gathered.
Dec 16th 2016
61
Galen Erso must be inspirational as HECK.
Dec 16th 2016
55
I would've *loved* to get to know him more.
Dec 16th 2016
62
this is either the second or third best SW flick
Dec 16th 2016
64
Agree 100% nm
Jan 17th 2017
230
So, yeah, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Dec 16th 2016
67
I really don't see any of the cameos as fan service.
Dec 16th 2016
70
%100 base
Dec 16th 2016
76
Agree!
Dec 16th 2016
82
... but isn't this the definition of fan service?
Dec 16th 2016
85
When I said I think decisions were made I was thinking the opposite.
Dec 16th 2016
91
No it's not the definition!
Dec 17th 2016

Forest was amazing to me, and I wish Saw was used better.
Dec 17th 2016
113
I really liked his seasoning on that ham as well.
Dec 17th 2016
118
      Thank you. So far in my convos, u and I are the only ones.
Dec 18th 2016
121
      Yep. That scene when he asked Jyn if she was there to kill him...
Dec 18th 2016
122
Looks like Saw is showing up in Rebels when it restarts
Dec 18th 2016
119
Diego Luna doesn't work for me, ever. He's a distraction to me.
Dec 18th 2016
120
Might be better suited for comedy...killed it in Casa de mi Padre
Dec 19th 2016
154
Forest was over acting like he was in a totally different movie
Dec 18th 2016
123
He was supposed to be acting crazy
Dec 18th 2016
126
      Yeah man, I knew who his character was. And he was over acting.
Dec 18th 2016
130
           Yeah man...he wasnt.
Dec 18th 2016
131
                He was though.

A thought. A theory. A grade.

I don't think so

Dec 19th 2016
135
      Fuck these names. PLAGEUS???
Dec 18th 2016
133
      I think it's even more simple than that. Snoke is Snoke.
Dec 19th 2016
139
      Wasn't Plagues a Muun?
Dec 19th 2016
142
      Before TFA I was hoping Snoke was Plagueis, but Snoke has a nose.
Dec 19th 2016
145
      It ain't Plageus. They already came out and said that
Dec 19th 2016
148
oddly, I think Tarkin is bothering people because they know it's CGI
Dec 19th 2016
136
yup.
Dec 19th 2016
137
He looked really good to me. On Youtube someone posted all
Dec 19th 2016
138
i caught the IMAX 3D, and also thought the tarkin CG looked fantastic.
Dec 19th 2016
150
      same
Dec 19th 2016
156
      in this line.
Dec 28th 2016
210
it didn't bother casual and new Star Wars goers at all...
Dec 19th 2016
143
I'd actually say the opposite.
Dec 19th 2016
144
I barely know who tarkin is much less who is in episode iii
Dec 19th 2016
157
      That's my point.
Dec 21st 2016
169
I didnt think twice about it until after the movie
Dec 21st 2016
163
Same here. I was hyped that he was in it.
Dec 21st 2016
167
the patient, dialed-down dialogue was also refreshing versus TFA
Dec 19th 2016
153
Whittakers reprising the role in the Rebel cartoons
Dec 21st 2016

Looks like we'll get to see why he went crazy.
Dec 21st 2016
170
ya'll ain't no real Star Wars fans ... LOL
Dec 21st 2016
171
I'm surprised people disliked the CGI
Dec 21st 2016
172
I gotta see it in IMAX or just Ultra AVX no 3D
Dec 22nd 2016
175
I saw it in IMAX 3D and then on a regular screen
Dec 22nd 2016
184
After rewatching, the only CGI moment I didn't like was Leia's smile.
Dec 22nd 2016
176
      Yeah i agree she shouldve looked scared or worried
Dec 22nd 2016
181
      lol
Dec 22nd 2016

I saw it. I really liked it. My complaints are minimal.

My only problem with the movie are the motivations

Maybe?
