Rogue One

The force is strong with this one.

Jumping back to the days before Luke was saving the universe, then growing out his hermit beard, this prequel surprises in all the right ways.

Grittier than expected, and populated with great characters like Donnie Yen’s blind warrior and a killer Alan Tudyk-voiced droid, it has stellar action scenes and emotional impact.

Not part of the “traditional” run of Star Wars films, it makes them better by filling in pieces of info and proving you don’t have to carry the Skywalker name to have your life and death matter.

What a concept.
