In essence, the film is a depiction of the opening crawl of A New Hope.

Which is why it seems less & less SW Episode 3.5 & more directly Rogue One, a Star Wars prologue.
I love that & I'm sure to watch R1 near the time of any SW re-watches to come.

Thunderball A-

Always delivers the goods for me. While not the greatest, arguably the most epic of Bond's golden age. It plays like a crescendo for me, what with all the SPECTRE baddies & MI6 00's having their own full conferences, so much on the line after 3 films' worth of buildup.
You Only Live Twice gave us Blofeld & a giant volcano fortress, but it was cartoony. Thunderball was the last crack at legitimacy for me, until the Craig era.

China readying its forces at the DPRK's border... if the US attacked the North, would the North really try to combat China?
What's the game there?

Quite-Gone GenieI still think "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" would have made a good series finale.

To be fair, it was for me, in hindsight. Chatter over the years seems to suggest the same for many.
Season 5 is king for me. It's sillier than S4 & much much funnier, everyone's having fun in S5.
Homer's Barbershop Quartet is my #1 eps; swap meet follies are hilarious, Be Sharps formation & fame are on the money, + George Harrison cameo as cherry on top.
Moe's Cavern ftw.

MarGaLo golfer loves Belichick's 'No days off' crede?!

Trump isn't even 6 months in & he's already fully in a lane I expected - all talk, zero result, blame e-v-e-r-y-body else for anything & everything.
Lamest duck to ever sit in that house.

I see the Korean breaking news has cooled way off... when Trump's grand armada including covert subs (not anymore) were off sailing with the Aussies thousands of miles away.
He's bringing sexy back.

One of my fav books, I'll be there. Trailer makes it look they're not trying to be some sensationalist popcorn flick. That gives me hope, alas it'll probably keep some mainstreamers away.
Meh. It was finally made & I'm good.

NES Classic being discontinued.

Nintendo could've upped the price given what ppl are paying online. Suggesting that it was never meant for anything long term doesn't atone for its viral appeal last summer, & still they couldn't get them made fast enough.
Guess it was just a marketing scheme after all - something to get them in the news before the Switch launch.
I'm still playing mine since first week, albeit with 30 more games I hack added.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them B

Handsomely made, didn't affect me much at all. Gave me a Narnia vibe with the suitcase sub-world.

The more time passes, the more SW R1 feels more of its truest intent - a cozied up prologue for Star Wars (IV). I love that, as I love Star Wars so much more than the other episodes.
Sure, the other one offs we'll be getting will feel less coupled to any of the saga proper, with young Han for example, yet R1 still had something to live up to & it succeeded imo.

My 3rd fav SW film. It's fun to have a SW film where the characters all seem free on borrowed time, unhinged from expectation.

Marrying the direction of the first quite well, it looks like TFA as it should for a trilogy of sorts.

I'm not sure about ESB comparisons, unless Luke goes super dark side on us.

Oxnard Montalvo

my biggest hope for the near future is that his tax returns come out so at least we have some cold, hard objective data to analyze.

D.H.Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - 7/10 - If it hadn't been for that third act and the ballsy ending I would have given this a 6 or maybe even a 5/10. I've heard about the troubled production and the reshoots to more or less retool the aforementioned third act so it's a good thing they did or else it would have probably grossed something considerably south of the half a billion it did. I don't know if it was simply too much setup or if it was muddled but I felt it really dragged. I was frankly disappointed and when I left the theater I told myself that it wasn't something I would ever consider watching again.`I may give it another chance someday though.

Yeah, it's on blu this week I think. I really liked it, not least as a cool prologue for Star Wars.
I'm not running out to buy, yet I'll grab it in a few weeks time.
A- my 3rd fav SW film.
