Shot/Reverse Shot: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

To mark the release of the first "standalone" Star Wars movie from Disney and LucasFilm, Matt and I watched Gareth Edwards' Rogue One, a prequel to the original Star Wars in which a ragtag group of rebels led by Felicity Jones work together to steal the plans for the Death Star. We discuss the stuff we liked about it (the action and pacing), the stuff we didn't (undead Peter Cushing) and reveal the real reason behind those pesky reshoots.
