The Nazi-esque rally speech made no sense given that the Stormtroopers had no involvement in the only remaining act -- the firing of the planet destroying weapon.  When the speech concluded, the Stormtroopers likely went back to their residences and got drunk because their job was done.

The parallels to EP4 were nice at first.  However, as they continued to mount, it started to take on a remake feel.
 
I think there was also on rather surprising goof:  When Rey and Chewbacca take off from the Resistance base to travel to the newly discovered planet where Luke is hiding out, I saw R2D2 in the crowd on the ground waiving goodbye.  Yet, when Rey and Chewbacca arrived at Luke's planet, R2D2 was with them.

I went to junior high and high school with Greg.  He is a good guy.

I know he is.  We've done a bunch of stuff with over the years where I work.  He's a super nice guy and great dad.    But, he is Greg Grunberg.  It's like Mr. Rogers suddenly appearing as a X-Wing fighter.

I waited until today to see the film, let the hype die down a bit (i don't really like crowds)
You guys have it pretty much summed up. I quite enjoyed it though, the cast are good especially Rey as as less wimpy Luke.
It does feel a bit like a hackneyed remake there is even a Porkins flying an X-Wing?

All in all its no Phantom Menace Wink

Finally went to see the movie last night.  Went in with a negative attitude, and the movie didn't disappoint.  Can't think of one thing I liked about it.  If it weren't for the Star Wars name attached to it, it wouldn't be doing shit at the box office.

^ having sat through all of the SW films with my little lad over the last two months, the sad truth is (and is oft mentioned), they're all a bit crap.
They're also kids films. Going in with a negative attitude was a bad start. You'd have been better off not bothering and remained aloof.

I agree tgs, I watched the first half hour of the one with Jabba the Hutt (can't remember if it was Jedi or Emperor) a few weeks ago and the scene in his palace was like the Muppet Show!

We've just been to see Rogue One, i think its what the kids would call a 'Mash Up'
The rebel alliance consist of a group of very British squadron leader types who wouldn't look out of place in Dambusters "Tally-Ho Old Chap" the other ensemble is akin to Monkey (Magic) lead by a Zatoichi blind swordsman fellow, to top it off a wisecracking robot reminiscent of Metal Mickey. It even has its own "My name is Inigo Montoya Jyn Erso you killed my father" moment, ..and here ends Double 0,s film review of the week. Anyone else had the pleasure?

 It was just a sure fire box office smash that was easy to fund for Disney who needed an ROI for investors in the forth quarter given that Moana wasn't a definite money maker  something to satiate young fans in between the main franchise films.
