Rouge one

Just saw Star Wars rogue one. The theatre is half empty on its 4th night, and admittedly for good reason.

I wish, as I often do, that I am born in another century or so… when everyone speaks the same language or everyone speaks everyone else’s language. Initially I was upset that Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen, two Chinese actors had all mumbling lines. I cannot understand what they say! And then I realized, so does Diego Luna and Felicity Jones and Forest Whitaker. It’s just a bad mix or else it just wasn’t mixed for an XD theatre. Many times I can’t hear clearly what they’re saying, and Star Wars is one of those movies where dialog mattered.

Btw,Who is the leader of the rebel group to recover the Death Star designs? Was it capt ander or Jyn?

Well, at least Vader is still bad ass, but his hip moved too much! That’s great for dancing but not for a warrior! Old Vader’s belt did not move when he walked. And he struts like a model in this move and not a mean killing machine of the old! Man, I am trying really hard to find something good but it is just such a jarring movie.

Star Wars is not a universe where we explore perspectives of the war, violence, etc… Star Wars had been, for me, a unified universe, with some greatest thing already known. It is a universe where Faith reign supreme. Ethics of violence is NOT a concern here. jedis are violent but are self constraint and prefers civilized solutions. Yes there is our real world. But sadly, Star Wars is not a place to search for solution. Imho

Sigh!
