Switch TFA and RO and that is literally my order.
I’m glad to see this movie isn’t as divisive as TFA was. I mean when was the last time Star Wars fans agreed on something that didn’t involve a film sucking?
Yeah, it’s been pretty refreshing how even the loudest anti-TFA voices have been supportive of RO…except for one ridiculous troll, of course.
Part of it is that some of the loud voices aren’t even out. By nature, the spin-off isn’t garnering as much analysis, critical or otherwise. And I think the stakes are lower too with a spin-off, and the expectations aren’t sky high coming off so long a wait with TFA.
It may not be as great an event as TFA, but in no way is R1 flying under the radar. Nor has it been under marketed or underexposed to film going audiences. Here in 2016 there could be no greater film. If there are indeed people out there dying to bash R1 as they did TFA, this film has enough world wide exposure to have drawn them out.
I think R1 has broad appeal. Not everyone will like it better than TFA, though many do; however, there is a near conensus that it is good.
