Rogue One: A Star Wars Story


It’s that time of the year when Back to the Movies travels to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away for our review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This week Alexandra and I are joined by the founder of the Graphomania Podcast Network and co-host of Hamilton: The PodcastVinton Bayne.

The podcast review skips over our normal What We’ve Been Watching segment in order to get right to the Star Wars talk we’ve all been waiting for. In our spoiler free review, we kick things off by reflecting on our thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens a year later. We discuss our initial reactions to Rogue One including the big changes that come along with being the first Star Wars spin-off film. Between the movie’s controversial special effects, it’s notable dogfights and talented cast, we talk about whether or not this film lives up to the franchise legacy. Does the Gareth Edwards directed Rogue One succeed in establishing new characters and bringing a fresh spin to the universe? We discuss the gory details, midi-chlorians and all–actually, drop that last part.

In our spoiler section we go in depth and discuss every detail of the film you would ever want to hear about as we do a sequence by sequence breakdown and dive even further into the extended Star Wars lore and our feelings on the film’s ending.

Every Star Wars talk is special and we’re glad you’re joining us on this week’s show. Share your thoughts on the GoodTrash Facebook, Twitter or in the comments below.
