I agree, this is the best of the mainline Disney SW. The first time I saw it at the cinema I was excited and filled with optimism. They had a good base with all the new characters and there was a hint of some interesting stories and ideas. Kylo was unconvincing (his character, not the acting) but I thought he had potential to turn into something more memorable.Thanks again for the review....must be hard work watching all these Star Wars films
Definitely the best of the new troligy and I really enjoyed it at the time. It brought the fun back to Star Wars that the prequels had sucked out. I liked the new characters as well as Han being fun again.
I have this in 3D and its great, will look to get it in 4k glory.
It could have set us up for a great trilogy but instead it was a missed opportunity.
Is there no word of a individual uk release of 4K Star Wars films yet box set looks nice but apparently discs are very tight to get outAnd a long with ‘Rogue One’, there is no UK stand-alone 4K UHD disc release of ‘The Force Awakens’. Absolutely bonkers! Mine is turning up from the US today. I don’t understand Disney’s Marvell/Star Wars UK disc release strategy at all.
Amazon US isn’t shipping to the UK during the pandemic, but it’s available via eBay, albeit at an inflated cost.
‘Rogue One’ 4K UHD presentation is beautiful, with a deeply rich colour palette and some really nice HDR highlights. I’m expecting the same from TFA and a stonking Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
There is no news on UK release dates for standalone titles and that's the part that's makes no sense. Excluding, 'The Last Jedi' and 'The Rise of Skywalker' which already do have UK 4K UHD discs releases.Is there no word of a individual uk release of 4K Star Wars films yet box set looks nice but apparently discs are very tight to get out
Biggest disappointment was the lack of Han, Luke & Leia having any shared screen time. It could have so easily been worked into the final act. It would have been so much better for Rey to complete her quest and to bring Luke back for the final show-down, only for Luke to fail and see Han’s demise.I didn't like the movie. A lot of issues like:
Who is the First Order?
How did it come to be?
Leia and Solo were such bad parents.
Luke, Han and Leia didn't get to be together in the movie.
Luke doesn't run away and hide.
Any suggestions on good sites to get hold of the US version of this and Rogue One?
I was about to suggest the same. It is released on April 30th here. Of course the cover is in German, but the Disks have the English Soundtracks. Shipping to the UK is a bit steep, but...Just ordered Rogue one from Amazon Germany for £27
Quick question - what is the Audio Format for the US edition of Rogue One? At the moment, websites pre-selling the German copy seem to indicate Englisch DTS-HD 7.1, but there are variations (DTS-HD 5.1 also stated, & a wide variety on the German spec front.) Nobody shows a rear cover, & I'll know in 3 Days, but just interested as part of the anticipationI'm happy with the US editions of 'Rogue One' and 'The Force Awakens' to make up my 4K collection. 'Rogue One' is the disc that I keep going back to. It's brilliant.
