Movie Review -- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

It should surprise precisely no one that on my first day of Christmas vacation Sarah and I went to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story yesterday. It is the first movie in the Star Wars universe that lies outside the story surrounding the Skywalker family told in the first seven films, and it is the story of the rebels that stole the plans to the Death Star that end up in Princess Leia's possession in the very first Star Wars film, now known as A New Hope. It is also the first of the Star Wars movies that tells a complete story within itself. I won't go into details in order to avoid spoilers, but it is a fun movie with interesting new characters and appearances by familiar ones.
