Spoiler-free review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Phew – can Disney handle it? The first ever true Star Wars stand alone feature (very much excluding the Holiday Special) directed by Gareth Edwards, starring Felicity Jones and Diego Luna. My palms are sweating just thinking about the pressure they were under! Find out our totally spoiler-free thoughts in this first part of our review.
Tom Cruise returns for a second outing as Lee Child’s macho hero Jack Reacher, this time assisted by Cobie Smulders. He’s got big shoes (and clothes) to fill – how does it measure up? We also talk convenient parades, festivals protests – you know, the ones that spring up right in the middle of a chase scene! And Phil draws our attention to some hot movie news topics including the announcement of Donald Glover as young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo spinoff, Harrison Ford returning to Blade Runner 2049 and the intriguing changes in the 3rd trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. As if all that wasn’t enough, we end with a chat about ambiguity in movies; when it’s done well and when it really winds us up!
