RE: Saw Rogue One

I don't see many movies anymore, but since my kids love Stars Wars, I do get to indulge a little. First, I love the franchise. I really liked the film, particularly after The Force Awakens, as I was a little disappointed with that film in that I thought it too much a retread of past themes, and unlike Darth Vader who really seemed dangerous, I was not convinced of his protoge.

Stars Wars was always a Cowboys and Indians movie set in space, and I thought Rogue One really carried that theme to the nth degree. I was concerned it would disappoint the kiddos, as it spends a fair amount of time developing the characters at the expense of the action, but when it hits the action, it goes balls out.

And having my son turn to me with a bright smile when Darth Vader chokes a subordinate made my day.
