Rogue One VS Solo
I know a ton of bitter people are gong to jump on here and say "they both sucked" just to sound cool, but I thought both movies were cool as hell. I love the back story movies that aren't really a part of the main story line. However, which one was the best?
Solo was a lot of fun. It had great battle scenes, daring escapes, love, loss, and struggle. It also had Woody Harrelson, and how Han and Chewy met. Emilia Clarke was definitely a welcome sight to boot. All in all, I thought it was a great movie. It even had Darth Maul in the end...but I'm not gonna lie. His introduction to the movie considering the time frame of where it sits in the entire saga, has caused me more questions than answers. I still get pissed wondering how Maul is still alive. I've heard the theories, but I want actual answers and I want them NOW!
However, I think Rogue One was better. I definitely did not think that by an hour into the movie. As a matter of fact, I was flat out irritated by an hour into Rogue One. Not as irritated as I still am about The Last Jedi, but definitely not happy to say the least. I'm not sure how they did it, but in that one final battle scene, they tied the entire movie together and made me start to love every character. That final battle was SPECTACULAR! The blind guy with the faith in the force dying and his pal starting to believe because of it. I dare you to say "I am one with the force, and the force is one with me," without getting chills. The self sacrifice feelz are off the charts in that movie. Then, after all of the insanity that ensues in that final battle scene, you think it's over and you can take a breath...NOPE! Enter bad ass Darth Vader in all his glory kicking ass and taking names, force choking everything in sight, meanwhile you're just starting to realize where the hell he is! Right as it dawns on you what is going on, BAM! PRINCESS FREAKING LEIA IN THE VERY FIRST SCENE OF THE VERY FIRST STAR WARS MOVIE! My mind was blown. It doesn't get better than that. 1 movie single handedly brought the entire saga around full circle! Rogue One for the win!
