Peak Vader

Rogue One is fine. The continuity and shoutouts (Captain Antilles, anyone?) reach gratuitous levels, but still not as bad as Sith. Thankfully, no mention of Yoda.

I saw a little bit of the latest Star Trek in the final battle site, along with the blockbuster movie conventions of impossible swarms of sky fighters and physics-defying  (and practicality-defying) architecture. And CGI Leia (with a CGI bra) and Tarkin were interesting cartoons.

None of that matters. Because Vader.

Darth Mother ****ing Death Star “Death is a Star” Die Rebel Scum Vader. Why does he kill everyone in his path? Because Vader.

Why does he not need storm troopers to clear the path? Because Vader.

He still needs new joke writers, but when the sword glows red, it’s too late. You're the punchline, and you’re already dead.
