Rogue One – My Review

maxresdefault

This film should have replaced the godawful prequels (1-3), and our universe would be far better off.

Must say I loved this new direction, and I have hope for the Star Wars franchise. That said, I’m not sure how many will notice the parallels between Vader’s empire and our own.  Rather than adding to the cacophony, I’ll stick to the major points.

Star Wars was basically California rogues vs. the British empire in space, with a few new tricks. The environment is so vast that people can read their own interpretations into it, but clearly we had scrappy revolutionaries fighting the technically supreme fascist state which sought to encroach on every parsec of the known universe.

In 2016 they’re not so California anymore.

What’s more, they delivered on the theme, sacrificing for the greater good in a world of high tech and mysticism, where not everyone can see the difference between right and wrong. Let’s hope George Lucas doesn’t fuck up Rogue Two with Son of Jar Jar and clarinet-wielding puppets…
