Hello, Dreamwidth! I've been howling over Rogue One on Tumblr for days now, which is totally fine. Haha. Merry Christmas.

Short version: I think a couple of the criticisms in terms of structure are legit, and also OH MY GOD I LOVE LOVE I LOVE THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVOURITE SW SINCE EMPIRE OH GODDDDD ALSO TWO OTPS OUT OF ONE MOVIE WHAT A FILM A+++++

An anon asked me for a review, so my longer and more coherent review:

I had a few brief tantrums conversations with my Tumblr friends over Rogue One before I managed to organize my thoughts into something like coherence (and horrifying realizations). So the Lesser Tumblr Posts:

December 21: saw the movie; feelings could only be expressed in gif form; screeched about my shiny new agonizing otp
December 22: the other otp; started dreaming up fix-fic AUsassembled my thoughts about Jyn's arc; descended into more babbling; progressed to Vader relief; came to terms with Lucasfilm ignoring their own actors' ages to stick to the mandated 20-something leads; more screaming; God bless fandom; seriously, Jyn/Cassian shippers are amazing
December 23: explained Vader's murder puns; was corrected about literary terminology and sneered back. Representative excerpt:

The wordplay is entirely based on the multiple potential meanings of choke and of aspiration, not on any word serving multiple syntactic functions.

December 24: started grumping about extracanonical shit I find unconvincing and inconsistent; cringed over Cassian fics treating Spanish like Sindarin
December 25 (today!): accurately represented the filmmakers' interactions with our corporate overlord; helpfully assembled my favourite anguished author's notes from fellow shippers on AO3

There are a couple more (not counting my howling in the tags of various reblogged gifsets and manips and whatnot), but they're more substantial, so I'll probably do full crossposts.
