Lessons From the Screenplay has a new video out that compares Rogue One to the Force Awakens. Spoiler alert, they think Force Awakens is a better movie with better developed characters and after recently watching them both I agree. In our Roundtable episode of Rogue One I said that my thoughts on Rogue One were mixed and I still stand by that but they have evolved some. Rogue One has one of the most incredibly well executed endings to a Star Wars movie that feels a bit muddled in the first half. It's not a bad movie to watch at all, but the reshoots are felt and I think the first half suffers partly because it seems that Disney may have wanted to change the tone of the film. Just last week I rewatched The Force Awakens and I may have loved it more that time that watching it the first time in theaters. It's such a great film that stands up well to rewatching and I found myself seeing new things that I missed before(like when they talk about FN-2487 they show his baby photo on the terminal, a nice touch as they bring up his history file implying Fin has been with the Empire since birth).

But you know... I could be wrong so take to the comments tonlet me know what you think.
