Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
In this episode:
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just
released, and we had to do a podcast on it. Especially since we did
a pre-release show last week! What is interesting, though, is
that we have never disagreed so much about Star Wars. Despite being
roughly the same level of fan (read: fanatic), the two of us look
at both the SW universe and film/media in general in such different
ways that our takeaways from Rogue One are starkly different.
- From the characters to the plot, to
pacing and even whether or not this Star Wars Story needed to be
told at all, we disagree on almost every point. We do, however,
totally understand why the other feels the way he does. We have a
long discussion about the Star Wars universe, what makes each of us
love it, and why. Much of our disagreement around Rogue One comes
from its dark tone, which influences our enjoyment on a
film-viewing level, not as a Star Wars fan.
- We do, however, agree on a number of
points about the movie. We found a lot to love about Rogue One, and
more than anything else, it makes us excited for the new directions
that the franchise will take. It’s a great sign that because we
disagree about Rogue One, there will inevitably be an experimental
Star Wars Story that flips our disagreement 180 degrees. There is a
ripe future for Star Wars because of the precedent set with Rogue
One, and we both can’t wait to see what new things Disney is going
to bring us in the future.
