Saw it today. Totally outstanding flick. Didn't disappoint me as a die hard fan of the series. Found it to be a bit more mature than the other movies, even the humour seemed to be a little less hammy that the canon movies are known for.

As silly as it sounds I am absolutely devastated today, Princess Leia and Carrie Fisher have been apart of my life since I was 4 years old. R.I.P Carrie.

Not silly at all mate, its very sad news. I'm sure she had her fair share of demons but she'll be remembered very fondly by most.

Surprised she didn't get far more starring roles

She was very good in the Star Wars trilogy and Harry meet Sally

Proof I guess that people get type cast after doing Sci Fi movies /roles

RIP Carrie Fisher , condolensces to her family and friends

Saw it today.
Solid 6 due to visuals. Acting was what i expected...abysmal.
That makes 3 StarWars ive seen now and theyre all the same in these areas.
Dependable franchise.

It was way more than a solid 6

I should have known all Queenslanders wake up on the wrong side of the bed.

What a disgrace. Star Wars is absolutely legendary.

Not dependable. Every kid you meet, including me, loves Star Wars and if you have a problem with Star Wars, tell that to all the kids in the world.

I, like many other kids, am a Star Wars fan boy.

Geeze someone need their nappy changed? The day i take the advice of kids as gospel is the day ill turn it up.

Starwars to me is nothing more than special effects with a good soundtrack. Not terrible not great, just mediocre telling of a recycled story that is as old as time itself. The dialogue and acting is always subpar but its covered over by the action set pieces, which are very good. The female leads of the past two films have been so wooden you could have replaced them with deckchairs and no one would have noticed. There seemed to be a lot in there for the uber fans so im sure thats where the ratings are coming from but for a casual moviegoer its a tad dull to be honest until the last 30-40 minutes.

Well let's put it into perspective, we win 6 out of every 10 next year & we're in the 8. Rebellions are built on hope!

Every one has their own opinion when it comes to movies and what entertains them so I would never bag someone for their opinion. Rogue One for me was an 8/10, I thought for a Star Wars movie the acting wasn't as bad as it has been for some of the others, I'm a massive Star Wars fan so much so two of my kids are named after characters but I hated The Force Awakens, the story, the acting and even some of the effects were terrible. I think what I'm trying to say is every one is entitled to their opinion wether we like it or not, discussion is healthy but we should respect each other's thoughts.

Debbie Reynolds was an absolute stunner, even in her later life.
