My boys were 13, 10 and 6.

6 year old got scared at one point. Its a short scene that's unnecessary so I got him turn his head.

In truth I think it is most enjoyed by hardcore middle aged fans of the first movie

My young bloke is six and a half and absolutely loved it. I have never wanted to encourage him with any guns etc, which obviously the film is full of, but what do you do when they are going to pick up anything and pretend it is a gun anyway.

Not at all Spartan, as I think he likened it to a somewhat similar mythical larger sea creature.

By the way, with your strong belief, surely your son is named after the biblical one, rather than the intergalactic Luke?

Super impressed with Rogue One, I reckon that's the best Star Wars movie they have done to date. Really ties things off nicely between episodes 3 and 4.

I really enjoyed it. A great story.
But after the force awakens i was itching to see it again straight away. I'm not feeling that this time.

Not really..No

All the Easter Eggs relate to Ep IV A New Hope..

The new characters stand alone...

Oh and 365 Days to Ep VIII...

No, having only gotten back into them with the last couple. Could easily be viewed as any other stand alone movie, particularly as most leave an opportunity for a sequel.

Im not so sure it could stand alone as a movie. It would be a pretty crap ending if a new hope didn't exist.

I really don't get these kinds of things, mixing two totally unrelated themes together on a T-shirt. Like Star Wars and the Tigers or Sons of Anarchy and the Tigers, which is another i've seen. It's dumb.
