ROGUE ONE dir. Gareth Edwards (2016)
It was nice to see some stakes. I remember how upset I was as a third grader seeing Return of the Jedi for the first time, and seeing one Ewok die, and the other mourn him. Especially with modern America's valorization of the military, I'm glad the kids might understand that good guys die too. ROGUE ONE was much better than THE FORCE AWAKENS, but these things are never going to really be for me anymore, and that is just fine. Shout out to whoever was responsible for getting those flight helmets nice and grimy. Ya done good.
