Rogue One Discussion - yep, spoilers will eventually abound. Beware.

movies are cool. here is a place to talk about how cool they are. or maybe how much they suck, sometimes. like that fucking piece of shit 'mac and me'. worst fucking movie ever, a two-hour ad for fucking coca-cola.

Second viewing last night (in 3D). I liked it more this time. The 3D is worth it for the end battle alone.
Still too many easter eggs for me though.

After it being pointed out online, I spotted Chopper. When the comms guy comes running out of the Temple after Mon Mothma, Chopper's on the left side of the screen.

Anyone else think the part when Bodhi Rook is attempting to establish a connection to the Rebels and the cable gets snagged felt like a slight nod to Back to the Future?

Yeah, I don't think that's Snoke. If it was, they would've made some kind of connection.

I say Snoke - and if you think I'm unbearable now, just wait until I'm proven right!!! My internet snobbery will know no bounds (as if it ever has anyhow)!!!!

I'll have to watch more closely when I inevitably go see it again.

The DK Visual Guide gave him a name. Vaana, or something like that.

Oddly, I thought Tarkin was an actor with makeup or prosthetics to look like Cushing. It wasn't quite right, but I didn't put my finger on it being CG until afterward.

Word on the street is that Lor San Tekka was from the same order of temple guards are Chirrut and Base. Unconfirmed - this was from some Easter Egg guide short I was watching. I think he sourced the novelization of Rogue One.

Kren Blista Venee - we even have a figure of him from a few years ago.



Or as I like to call him, Supreme Leader Snoke. :lol:

Nah, Snoke is working for Lando's predecessor on Cloud City now.

Watched it last night on my computer. I'm going to just agree with Diabolical's initial comments. I'll watch it again at some point.
