I didn't think it was bad at all. In fact I've been listening to it every time I'm on my bike or motorcycle and really enjoy it. I think the composer did an excellent job at capturing John Williams' style, but still coming off a bit different.I missed John Williams' music in general. Definitely a different feel musically.
Oh, don't get me wrong. I don't think it was bad, I just prefer Williams.I didn't think it was bad at all.

I found this today on the trailer and teaser shots that were missing from Rogue One.It's strange to me that about half of the scenes from the trailers didn't make the final cut of the film. No "I rebel", no face to face with the TIE fighter, no Jyn and Cassian running on the beach...
They removed some parts that I would've really liked to have seen. I wonder if they'll do an extended Blu-Ray version.I loved Rogue One. Way to much to say about it and not enough time right now.

I would LOVE an extended RO Blu-Ray. But it has never happened before and I don't have high hopes that it would happen now. I don't know that it is "Disney's" type of thing. J.J. Didn't do it for TFA and we know that they had lots of cut footage for TFA. I mean they went as far as to hold back a commentary track so they could make us double dip a year later for that and or for a 3D version if that is your thing. (I know it's not yours Ares) They did the same thing with The Martian this year. Held back a commentary track and an extended version just to get the double dip. (I know I am so negative!)They removed some parts that I would've really liked to have seen. I wonder if they'll do an extended Blu-Ray version.
I agree. I wondered at first if he (Bohdi) wasn't on some remote outpost and he could maybe get away with being a little more scruffy.So two issues I have with Rogue One are...
- Bohdi seems too unkempt to be a member of the Imperial forces. I imagine all Imperials to be held to a strong regimen of clean shaven and short groomed hair. If he defected just before going to Saw, there would not have been enough time for his hair to grow to the length that it was.
- Along these same lines, for Cassian to pull off impersonating an Imperial officer, he would've needed to be shaven. I don't think any Imperial officers would have a scruffy, unshaven look.
These bothered me both times when seeing the movie. It just didn't fit.
I could buy that, but it didn't sound that way to me. Plus, Bohdi's a cargo shuttle pilot, so he gets all over and never knows when he may run into an officer who will reprimand him for his sloppy looks. Had it been that he was in hiding for 6 months or so, I could've dealt with it a little better, but the way I took it, he just defected very recently.I agree. I wondered at first if he (Bohdi) wasn't on some remote outpost and he could maybe get away with being a little more scruffy.
Had the same thoughts about Cassian sticking out like a sore thumb. But Galen had a pretty scruffy look as well, so who knows.
I had a similar thought. But at this point Galen was basically a prisoner. So they didn't care if he fit "the dress code and/or grooming standards" of The Empire.That's true. I hadn't considered that.

Good Point. They did make him wear his uniform. But maybe didn't care about making him shave or be more presentable like the other "Energy Scientists".I thought making Galen wear the uniform was more of a punishment (constant reminder of who he works for)....similar to how Negan made Rick carry the bat around in TWD.
I took it as if he made it something easier that Imperial scientists/engineers could've detected it and fixed it.One thing that gets me is why did Galen's exploit of the Death Star have to be so convoluted. Why not do something to the kyber crystals arrangement or energy channeling and just make them blow up when fired?
Agreed! I Was just wondering if they were at all related as they seem very similar in design. From a distance it reminds me more of the T-16 than an Imperial shuttle.I would think it would be much bigger if it was him and 8 soldiers in there. Seemed like Luke's was a single man craft or much smaller at least than what Krennic would want/need.
I didn't see this post before my last.
So if this is a T-3C, then I would assume it's just a different model from the same manufacturer, which would make sense to me.
Yeah. I noticed that, but I thought they said "T-16" instead of "T-15", but T-15 makes more sense.I don't know if you noticed but on my first (and only) viewing there is a point where there are a couple of troopers having a casual kind of distant conversation about how they are discontinuing the "T-15". I laughed out loud, my wife looked over at me in the theater with a look of "what's so funny" This line is similar to the line in ANH where the troopers are having a similar conversation when Ben is shutting down the tractor beam the say "Have you seen that new VT-16" (At least that is what the subtitles say)
There was a similar background line in TFA when right after Han, Chewy & Finn find Phasma and Rey is looking for a hiding place the FO Troopers talking down the way say "Have you checked out the new T-17?"
I love they these little things show up here in there and they show the progression of the model numbers. Fun stuff.
I kept checking the movie today for scruffy looking Imperial Officers and never saw one.So I just finished browsing through my Rogue One visual guide.
There are a couple of Imperial Officer of Scarif that are a little scruffy with facial hair.
While I don't remember seeing any of these guys specifically. I only have one viewing under my belt.
So I will have to watch closer next time.
YES!! I noticed that guy also an thought to myself that guy looks like Bulloch!!I kept checking the movie today for scruffy looking Imperial Officers and never saw one.
I did however notice that the Imperial officer that Vader told to prepare his shuttle just before they went chasing after the Tantive IV sure did look like Lieutenant Sheckil (aka Jeremy Bulloch). I think that would be an awesome nod to Jeremy as he's one of the few actors that has really kept an amazing attitude about Star Wars and showed his full support the entire time. I would say he is only beat by Anthony Daniels, but Anthony gets to be in EVERY Star Wars film and then some.
I think they are going to be hard to see.I kept checking the movie today for scruffy looking Imperial Officers and never saw one.

Here are some things I have found.
In ANH when Han, Luke and Chewy are waiting for the elevator to head up to the Detention Block there are a couple of "Senior" Imperial officers that have mustaches.
I have never really noticed them, but found them this morning when I was looking for the quotes about the "T-16" subject.
And a couple of scans from the visual dictionary of the Facial Hair Imperials.
The younger Halvax has full facial scruff similar to Cassian.
And next to him Lt. Brun has a mustache.
And one of Galens scientists (Vlex Onopin) has full facial scruff going on.
So a couple of instances of facial hair in the Empire in RO and ANH.

They also call over the intercom, for a General Syndulla, aka Hera Syndulla, from the TV show, and later a call for Captain Antilles, the captain of the ill-fated Tantive IV.
If you thought that Ghost cameo was just a cursory glance to the show and a get around for not actually including the crew themselves, that’s not totally true – although none of the main speaking gang appear in the film, there is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance from Chopper, their playful, squat astromech droid.
He can be seen rolling past Mon Mothma when she’s informed of the newly invented “Rogue One’s” mission to Scarif. He’s the most innocuous character to appear, blending in with other droids on the base, but it’s clearly him, all but confirming Kanen, Ezr, and co. were on Yavin IV at the time.
