    Badly Browned reacted to Belisarius09 in UNDER RATED Rogue one   
    I think ppl have preconceived notions of the imperials being incompetent. The troopers were going toe toe toe with saw’s insurgents despite being ambushed.  The imperial garrison on edu shot down several of the rebel strike craft.  The imperial garrison on scarrif steadily isolated, pushed back, and neutralized the rebel strike teams. The tie pilots eliminated blue squadron on the surface. An unprepared imperial fleet rallied and held its ground, maintained an effective defensive posture protecting the shield gate (their main objective) all while wearing down the rebel fleet. Raddus’s Flagship was on its last legs. Tarkin ruthlessly (and very nearly successfully) used the Death Star to eliminate leaks, and Vader kicked *** at the helm of an isd and in person.  Leia’s ship had been identified and wasn’t going to get away. Aaaand then a new hope happened.

    I like many others really enjoyed rogue1. The space battle especially had clear objectives that were conveyed to the audience so it wasn’t just a bunch of pretty things to look at thrown on screen. K2so may be my favorite sw droid. The first half of the film lagged at times, and seemed jumpy with the planet hopping, and jyn suffered from being a passive character who had things happen to her rather than her driving the story. All in all I really enjoyed it though, I liked cassian and saw for that matter showing the rebellion too had shades of grey. 
    I also really enjoyed solo. It suffered unfairly as a result of tlj backlash. 
     
    Both vii and viii were dissapointments to me.  The standalone films were gems. Looking forwards to the mandalorian and ole wan mgregors return to the role of kenobi. Honestly had zero interest to see ix but then they brought the emperor back. They’ve hooked me again!

    This is awesome! I'm relatively new to the miniatures hobby (don't have to worry about terrain in Armada) and having to build a bunch of terrain felt a little daunting. Already got a Tarkin Tent and a couple arid buildings made. Definitely going to follow this thread for updates.

    Hello fellow painters! 
    Now we have a painting sub forum  I thought I'd start a fresh thread where I can share pictures of my progress with the Legion minis.  Here's a link to the complete video tutorial playlist showing how I painted them.
    Here are some pics of the minis I've covered so far:


















    Happy Painting!

    Hi folks!
    As the pace of my Star Wars Legion output is picking up I thought it appropriate to start a single thread where I can put pictures, links and answer questions etc.
    Most of you have already met Luke of course:
    I'm now pleased to be able to share the next episode which covers the Rebel Troopers:
    ...and the AT-RT:
    Introducing the Stormtroopers:
    ...and the Speeder Bikes:
    No introduction needed:

    I don't think the fact its "too different" is why its not being liked.  Rogue One was in many ways very different than what we've seen before, but I don't hear as much criticism of it.  I think its more the fact the story was really poorly done.  Things like a single fighter taking down a capital ship's point defenses, FO warships without fighter cover, A FO dreadnought apparently without shield generators, FO commanders unwilling to deploy fighters to engage the fleeing Resistance vessels, flying princesses, force projection, Finn's subplot that went nowhere, and so forth.  All these thing could have been fixed in the final drafts of the script, but they didn't bother to, Lazy writing is the flaw with this movie. IMHO.

    I feel like TLJ makes more sense as an Episode 7 film that is trying to distance itself from the previous George Lucas films, not as the 2nd movie in a new Disney Trilogy. Some key setups in TFA just to be tossed aside. Clearly Rian Johnson was only interested in Rey and Kylo and the Force, but was obligated give Finn and Poe something to do because of TFA.
    Makes me feel even more so that Disney has no idea if they want this new trilogy to be a sequel or a reboot.

    I'd say my issue with TFA is that Disney couldn't decide if it wanted a sequel or a reboot, and then ended up trying to find something in the middle. Thus in the end we get a bunch of new characters like it's a sequel, but those new characters lose screen time and development because Disney also wants the nostalgia  with the old actors. That's before considering the obvious main plot rehashes.
    I'd say TFA was a technically competently made movie, but clearly made with lots of input from execs. I was super hyped up for the movie after my first viewing. However, TFA was unlike any other movie experience for me in that in my 2nd and 3rd viewings in the theater I could feel that nostalgia shine wearing off and the disappointment creeping in. 
    On the flipside, I absolutely LOVE Rogue One. Yes, I think the 1st Act and particularly Saw Guerrera feels like something that was once a big part of the story in old drafts that was later cut, but Rogue One had the balance of fan service and new things that spoke to me way more than TFA did. I can still vividly recall my excitement in the theater when Darth Vader appeared in that hallway. Plus, I think Gareth Edwards is much better than JJ Abrams at compositing interesting shots for the camera. I can and do re-watch the Battle of Scariff more times than I care to admit.
    About loving Star Wars again, just know that being Star Wars fan does not mean you have to unquestioningly love everything Star Wars related that comes out.
    Personally, if TFA was what sparked this new Star Wars interest and allows for things like Star Wars Armada and new video games (please oh please give me a reboot of X-Wing vs Tie-Fighter) then even just for that I'd say it was worth it.

    Think of the Force Awakens as the movie you'd expect was cultivated by focus groups.  It hits every note exactly how the person who hasn't watched them since the 90s remembers them.
    Rogue One feels a lot more like it was developed specifically for the die hard fan who wanted that grittier Star Wars film without a bunch of Jedi.  I'll be totally honest.  I think the Jedi (post prequel universe) are the most boring and uninteresting part of Star Wars.
    I like to call the new films "competent".  None of them are terrible, but they aren't exactly what I want out of them.  That's totally fine.  I enjoy them for what they are.  I think a lot of us are trying to make these into something much more than they are.
    Seriously, enjoy the X-Wings blowing up TIE Fighters and cringe when Han Solo starts talking about Reptars on his space garbage truck.

    This is so true. When I first watched TFA I thought “this is awesome” then I thought about it, then I had all those shower thoughts and now, to me, the movie looks great but I can’t help but think “this is so stupid” in almost every scene with Rey, Kylo or Starkiller Base.
