    mother!

    ★★★½

    It looks like a have unique position about being on the fence with this film with the critical response being so polarising.
    I skew more towards the like camp but that doesn't mean this film isn't riddled with problems but, I do not understand people completely writing this off giving it half stars and calling it the worst film they've ever seen as there are elements of a great film.

    The biggest problem I had with Rogue One was the amount of times I was taken out of the film and my immersion/enjoyment was halted. A certain element of the CGI in the film was incredibly noticeable and while I commend them for taking a risk with it I feel there could have been ways around it…
