So, I watched this Thursday. And what a fucking amazing movie it was - might even be better than the Force Awakens. I do have some issues with it, primarily in the choices made by the director, but it's full of references to both the prequels and - more importantly - the original saga. I was very pleased with the movie as a whole.

That's a hell of a claim.

A hell of a claim, but one that I back. Rogue One feels like an entry that - in theory - shouldn't be necessary? But it nevertheless manages to make itself essential to the original saga by explaining a number of things, such as how the Death Star plans ended up in the hands of Leia Organa, or why there's an empty spot on the Red Squadron. It does so without actually retconning anything, to boot, even making the Empire look a tad bit smarter by explaining how the Death Star ended up with such a major design flaw.

Note; none of those are spoilers. I'm not stating how any of that happened, just that they're explained in Rogue One. I also saw it in 3D, and what an experience that was.

"Serio"might even be better than the Force Awakens.

Of course it is better than JJ Wars. That just goes without saying. In fact, this NOT being JJ Abrams is the entire reason I plan to see this in the first place.

I might see it next week if I end up seeing it in theaters. Didn't know Abrams wasn't directing this one.

Not entirely sure what was wrong with the Abrams movie? The Force Awakens was better than any of the prequels, and almost as good as A New Hope in my opinion. Abrams also happens to have a long history of creating absolutely fantastic stories(Fringe, Alias) and directing some massive blockbusters(Star Trek), so I'm not sure why his name is somehow a "negative".

Yeah, I didn't think the Force Awakens was a bad movie taken by itself. It's a big repetition of the first movie, and it's got a laughable villain - the entire cinema erupted in laughter when he took his helmet off. But it wasn't execrable - some of the cinematography was gorgeous.

Abrams is a certain kind of director, I think. Haven't cared a great deal for his Star Trek films, I think TFA was better than them.
