    I went to see it a few nights ago and mistakenly thought it was part of the new trilogy. I spent the first part of the film wondering why there were so many changes of scenery and new characters and I was convinced that the captured pilot was Poe. Even when I learned it wasn't him I was still expecting the young team from the previous movie to come in at some point and make it tie in. Even after them talking about the Death Star and all the characters being done away with it never actually made sense until about ten minutes after I saw the final scene.

    Knowing what I know now, it's an excellent stand alone film and even though the characters are disposable, you connect enough with all of them to make their fate matter to you. Links perfectly with the film it's supposed to.

    The rebels aren't half a complex beast now with all their splinter groups and cold blooded killers. The historical references are all part of the fun though.

    This and Force awakens makes the 3 prequels even worse now. A case of what you could have had!

    I said the same. Imagine if Disney had a hold of the prequels.

    Phantom Menace I grant you but am I really the only one who enjoyed AOTC and Sith?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    You watched them recently? They have aged worse than the original trilogy

    Wasn't overly impressed. Characters were really good but I suppose there weren't too many plot surprises.

    The scene on the ship at the end was awesome though.

    Better than the prequels but, standalone, I think it needed something more.

    Surely not. Alec Guinness kicks ass as obi wan. My all time fav, closely followed by ESB. The rest I can take or leave.

    Knew it was a controversial opinion but I stand by it.
    To be fair the original trilogy was before my time I do like them just a new hope is my least favourite.

    Favourite scenes in all films

    1. Hoth AT-AT attack
    2. Scarif assault
    3. Emperor and Luke "let the hate flow"
    4. Mos Eisley cantina
    5. First Death Star run

    The only thing that comes close in Episodes 1-3 would be Darth Maul. Typical that the best character in any of these gets killed off early doors.

    That probably explains it. A new hope was not a new hope in my house growing up. It was quite simply, star wars. I didn't even know it was a new hope until they redid them in 97.
