I just saw the movie tonight, thank you Moviepass.
I was one of four people in the theater so the dire straights that has become this movies revenue seems accurate.
I liked the movie, not sure why so many felt it was a let down. They did do one thing I noticed right away that had me thinking…about damn time.
It is a prequal, like Into Darkness. Like Discovery.
BUT the sets, the “tech” is all period correct and period specific. They didn’t use LCD screens just because you can go to www.sony.com and order one.The movie really had the feel for when it was supposed to be. I have to say, I don’t like the franchise but I do respect them for making the film this way.
It was cool to see Paul Bettany and Emilia Clarke, two actors I like and I never tire of the British accent.
Linda Hunt voiced another CGI but right away I heard Judge Zoey Hiller from The Practice.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the voice of a CGI character L3 but damn if I wouldn’t have put money on it being voiced by another GoT actress Gwendoline Christie.
Has anyone here seen the movie? Seeing the Millennium Falcon as a fairly new ship was cool. Got me thinking, DS9 might have ripped the design a bit when making the Defiant. When the Falcon is doing some maneuvers, it reminded me of the Defiant.
