The Force Awakens or Rogue One?
Which is better?
Rogue One. Sure some of the main team weren't as developed as I would like them to be, but I felt more invested. I suppose I am much more willing to accept similar elements in a film when they are done tonally different and take place closer to the film they are paying homage to. TFA takes place 34 years after ANH, I wanted some more original enemies and ideas.share
Currently storm chasing. Back June 1.
Rogue One, even with its slow first hour (and what is up with that squid alien scene? It needs to be cut out). But the movie is still far more enjoyable to watch than Force Awakens.
But people I know who aren't into Star Wars much tend to like TFA more. I guess that movie, since it's kind of a ripoff of ANH, helps ease non-SW fans into the story.
But for us hardcore SW fans, Rogue One really delivers. It not only links up to ANH magnificently, but we learn so much more about the Rebels, so that they aren't simply cannon-fodder who flail their arms when they die in an explosion. They have their own stories, lives and sacrifices, and many of them exist in a moral gray area and have many doubts about the Rebel Alliance. Rogue One actually brought something new to SW.
Rogue One, and that surprised me in the end because the story Rogue One was telling did not interest me in the slightestshare
