It's all personal preference, but I went for Machete order last year and I didn't enjoy it much, it all seems so weird and disjointed. 

For rewatching, I'd only ever go for release order (especially if the person in question is watching it all for the first time) , or chronological order (like I'm doing atm, I've seen them all already so no twists can be spoiled).... or even just prequel skip so - 4,5,6,7,RO.

 

I last watched them (4, 5, 2, 3, 6) in the build up to TFA and 3 people I was with had never seen a Star Wars film before.  Yep, these people still exist.  2 of them didn't even know that Vader was Anakin.

 

So seeing their reactions was the best thing about the whole exercise!  I enjoyed that order, but I do wonder if that was because I was watching with some Star Wars noobs?  The Machete Order does improve the revelation about Leia.

I can't imagine a situation in the rest of my life where I'll ever watch the prequel trilogy again. Did them in the run-up to Force Awakens, and only then as part of a critical breakdown with a friend. There's nothing whatsoever in those films to pull me back.

If you ever get bored of yearly Star wars films from Disney, just watch the prequels and be glad mad George sold it off.

Wait a minute. We're smarter than this!

 

See this is actually kinda my point with ROTS. It’s full of dumb schlocky lines that I just can help but find massively entertaining and endearing. 

Its in no way you know...Citizen Kane but I can help but really enjoy it.

Watched again last night. Also didn’t love it at the cinema, but after this 4th viewing and I can definitely say it’s grown on me enormously. Really love it now. Cracking film.

 

One can only hope TLJ grows on me in a similar way. Hmmm.

If anyone sees a good deal on the Blu-ray for this in the sales can you post up a link/info please? I didn’t really get on with it too well at the midnight showing originally (I was pretty tired and it’s flaws bugged me a lot) but think it’s time I give it a second chance. :D

HMV were selling the 3D version which comes with the standard blu ray for 11.99

Watched it last night and totally agree. :D Really enjoyed it after a fairly tepid cinema experience originally. I don’t know whether it was expectation getting the better of me or not, but the issues I had with it first time round bothered me less (although the soundtrack still grates) and the final act was better than I remembered. Might watch it again this week. Back on board!

Just watched this on Blu-ray on my big fuck off new telly. Loved it in the cinema but really fucking love it after watching it at home. What a brilliant Star Wars film. Feels aplenty. Probably get negged for this but I wish The Last Jedi had had a similar tone. Really feel Rogue One expanded the universe pretty much perfectly. Something I don't think TLJ accomplished. Maybe it'll seem better with a second home viewing, at least then I can FFWD the Canto Bight stuff.

 

I loved TLJ but Rogue One was much better edited (to the point of cutting other longer altenate takes out.)

 

Leaving aside the Star Wars aspect there's a good arguement to say this is at least as good (maybe better) than Last Hope.

Aw man, I love the designs in this soooo much. They are the best since the OT: the U-Wing, TIE Strikers, Shoretroopers, the assault tank, Tognaths! Death Troopers, Vader's holiday home... 

I thought the whole movie looked like a Battlefront instalment

Yeah I didn't realise till we built the Lego but the u-wing is great (although as my daughter pointed out, the Lego version has no loo). Those black Stormtroopers are superbly menacing too. And the fallen Jedi statues!

I'm on a train to a meeting and looking up out of the window I can see the moon bright in the early morning sky. It reminded me of the Death Star closing in over Scarif.

 

It suddenly struck me how well paced the movie is - especially in regards to it's beauty.

It so cleanly expresses each separate environment through a mix of seamless CGI and real world locales. It is believable and bountiful, something that feasts the eyes and sparks the imagination all at once. The start was totally nailed - from the ship passing through the planet rings, to the windswept meeting in the field. It had weight to it, and was handled expertly.

 

That's the triumph of it for me. Last Jedi was all a bit schlock-schtik in comparison. I didn't really like Canto Bight. It seemed fake, not a real place. The casino area felt like tiny and really very much like a set. Finn and Rose just suddenly appeared on the planet too - no run up or explanation. HI WE ARE HERE NOW THANKS, PARKED THE SHIP ON THE BEACH.

 

It all lacked gravity and the pacing that Rogue One had in spaces - despite it planet hopping all over the place. It seemed more cohesive.

 

Bravo Rogue One, I must watch you again.

I love, love, love Rogue One in its released form, but I would be very interested in seeing Edwards original cut before the reshoots.  If ever a film needed the Goose treatment, or a completely honest making of book, it’s this.

 

I wish we could get some adult rated Star Wars films, I'd love to see a Star Wars story directed by the District 9 director.
