Review: OK, so, I’ve had my doubts about this movie. Although it’s set in the Harry Potter world, this movie beats the pants off the Harry Potter movies by a long shot. And I’m not saying that because I’m a former Harry Potter fan; it’s kind of the truth. It’s also one of the better movies I’ve seen this year… sure to please viewers with the most discerning taste.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Buy, Rent, and Watch Movies & TV on Flixster

Rogue One draws deep on Star Wars mythology while breaking new narrative and aesthetic ground — and suggesting a bright blockbuster future for the franchise.

my rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

my review: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a furiously paced, deftly plotted joy, bursting at the seams with disquieting imagery and carrying a disturbingly dark undercurrent.

Believe it or not, it’s been 15 years since “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” made its debut in theaters. At that time, I had recently turned 18 years old and my friends and I drove out to the theaters in Salinas to see it. Well, let’s say my mind was blown away, making me into a Tolkien fan.

(Well, I admit I haven’t read the books until 2002, but that’s a given.)

Anyway, this article talks about how “The Lord of the Rings” managed to transcend time and gain fans, people who would never consider tackling J.R.R. Tolkien’s biggest work. (Plus, there would have been no “Hobbit” movies if  “The Lord of the Rings” was never made, nor became as big as they were.)

But as the comments imply, “The Lord of the Rings” is still the best. In a world full of Harry Potters and dystopias, it’s nice to know that there’s still one movie people can return to again and again.
