I could see that theory making sense given who vague the initial sections of the movie are.

I knew the timeline of the movie, but I did not know it was literally going to butt itself up to Ep IV that much.

Yes the classic technology was good and the space battle was good, but there was still way too much classic nodding going on.

Most of the classic nods I am fine with because as said, of where the film takes place in so it does make sense.

The only ones I am not happy with are the cameo of "You'll be dead" Tatooine Cantina guy and of course .... Leia actually being there at the battle in the end! Oh fuck right off with that!

Do they have to force retcon that in and make it so fucking obvious for the dumb young generation of today to get them interested in the classic Trilogy?

It's clear that there are multiple versions of the Tantive ships. Leia's one obviously being the Tantive "IV". But apparently the directors/writers won't let people figure out or imagine that Vader could've been hunting down ships of that type by time A New Hope comes in. But no, they make it so that it's hers straight away!


That stupid ending and how it will quickly tie into A New Hope (Some sources confirm as little as 10 minutes!) just goes to add credence to one of the biggest flaws with the Star Wars films in general, and that is the sense of time, passage and pacing for all the major events that occur.

I still like the film, but for fuck sakes. :facepalm:

Putting this here, just because. :evillaugh: :mis: :fyea:



Still is the greatest space battle on screen, especially when you consider so many aspects going for it.

For story, it was all or nothing for the Rebels giving everything that have. For special effects, just the amount of effort and the model work especially for it's time. The shots of when Lando and Wedge enter the Death Star is still one of my favourite parts. :oh:

Most importantly and the thing that really stands out, the music! Having some of the memorable melodies from the Yavin/Death Star Battle from A New Hope along with even more bombastic and triumph pieces, just more :oh: .

And when you watch the full thing including the Ewok battle and Luke/Vader/Palpatine, all happening at once, the way it's edited and paced, it's no secret Rogue One was doing the same thing for it's climatic battle which is why it resonates for alot of fans and was well liked.

Extra mentions goes to the videogames that also gives you the excitement and nostalgia for the battle, especially the Rogue Squadron games. :feel:
