Another person who hated TFA also hates R1? yawn
Wake me up when something new happens.
Sadly, i think it’s going to be an annual thing from now on.
Alderaan, before completing your over-length review ( well one long criticism really), maybe you should watch the movie again because so many of your criticisms are based on you either misinterpreting something, missing something or just getting facts wrong.
Take this complaint for example:
And what about the bizarre scene when Krennic arrives on Scarif? The commanding officer arrives with orders to dig up every one of Galen Erso’s communications, but how does he order his officers to do that exactly? In case you missed it, I will tell you, because I noticed it during the film: Krennic doesn’t look any of the imperials in the eye. He doesn’t even break stride on his way over to his penthouse view of Space Bahamas. He literally walks into the room, fails to acknowledge anyone, gives orders to nobody in particular, and hastily makes for the big window so he can look out at the pretty blue sky.
When Krennic enters, an officer addresses him.
Officer - "Director Krennic, what brings you to Scarif?“
Krennic - " Galen Urso. I want every dispatch, every transmission he has ever sent called up for inspection”
It’s very clear that he is addressing this officer. He doesn’t need to look at this guy for us to know who he is giving his orders to.
Then you call the Vader scene pointless filler? Well it isn’t. Krennic gets Vader involved. He has just had the Death Star taken away from him by Tarkin. He needs Vader. He needs him to use his influence with the Emperor to get his station back. He is a desperate man and will do anything to regain the Death Star. And when Vader refuses, his downfall is set in motion. If this scene didn’t happen then it would look like Krennic had just given up the second tarkin took over, which would have been bad writing 😉
