Rogue One

My first thought after walking out of the theater was, "huh, I don't know a single character's name from the movie I just watched." This Star Wars spin-off is heavy on plot and light on characterization... and fun. I guess they were trying to make a more adult Star Wars, but, in-the-process, they lost a lot of what made the best of the series so good. Fortunately, there aren't any embarrassing Jar-Jar moments and I have a feeling I may enjoy this more on second watching, but for me this was just so-so.
