Rogue OneWait…..a movie that was as good as, if not better than, its hype-stoking trailers suggested it would be?
I am scared.
**** SPOILERS ****
I was disappointed with Force Awakens. It was fun, don’t get me wrong, but it was a mess of ideas, forced nods to the original movies, the unnecessary laying of groundwork for future sequels, that jarring moment when the characters randomly went to a pub in The Shire and the fact Han Solo went out like a total pussy.
It was not a good movie.
The trailers for Rogue One promised to deliver what Force Awakens SHOULD have been: an actual, new story set in the universe we’re familiar with. Not just a hyperactive fan remake of Episode IV.
I dared to hope they would deliver. Usually a mistake in this day and age, given the bucket-loads of tripe we’ve been served in recent years. All the ingredients appeared to be there, but would they have the competence to bring them all together?
In a word: yes.
So... I just saw "Back to the Moon" and I simply have to get this out of my system and share this somewhere before I explode. Because one special (maybe even insignificant) moment, just gave me goosebumps and tears and heartache all at once. The shot after Steven firmly exclaims that his mother would never shatter someone, he looks directly at Amethyst.
But he doesn’t see Amethyst; he sees Jasper and in that moment he is reminded of her words in “Earthlings” and just begins to grasp the things his mother (most likely) has done to other gems (like Jasper) by destroying their diamond and starting a rebellion on the very planet, their birthplace, they were created in. I can’t even define my own feelings about this, but to comprehend those of Steven's? For him, to finally hear about the other side of Rose Quartz, the Crystal Gems would never ever get him to know about? I literary... can’t...
(I think he can't either... ;_; )
And please please give Eyeball a personally signed, limited edition Jasper action figure for showing some acts of compassion during this episode.
