Synopsis - "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"

Set before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) is a runaway architect for the Empire. Fifteen years after being forced to create a super weapon for the Empire, Galen's daughter Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) joins a team of rebels tasked with finding her father and stealing the plans to the Death Star with the hopes of finding a weakness. The team must risk their lives to infiltrate a heavily fortified Imperial base to get the plans and send them to the rebellion fleet.

Recommendation - "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"

While it took a little while for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to get going, once it did, it was an absolute joyride for anyone remotely interested in the Star Wars universe. It has some great laughs and some great, intense action. We get to see Darth Vader in all his glory and we get to see the turning point in the rebellion. Although it was a bit choppy in the beginning, the war feel to this movie more than made up for any issues I had. This movie has everything you love from a Star award movie, aside from a lightsaber duel, and I think this movie has a little something for everybody. Oh and if you are dying to see Darth Vader in some epic action, definitely stuck with this movie to the end.

This is a great movie and I definitely recommend adding it to your home video collection (I know I will), especially if you are a Star Wars fan.

Recommendation - Office Christmas Party

Office Christmas Party was a severely average comedy. It promised a crazy party, but delivered a chaotic montage scene. It promised heavy laughs and gave one character (Kate McKinnon) most of the comedic moments. The rest of the characters were spent furthering the plot of the film which shouldn't have been the case. I think the movie more or less delivered exactly the kind of movie I expected. Not bad, but not great. This kind of bummed me out as I thought this premise with this cast had a LOT of potential. Overall I think this is a decently entertaining movie, and by that I mean that it's decent at its best moments. This movie is showered with good chuckles and has a few laugh out loud loud moments but I thought this movie fell pretty far short from being great. It is a dumb and uninteresting story that has some laughs throughout.

I cannot recommend adding this movie to your home video collection and only recommend renting it if you are bored. If you are already bored, I think this movie is entertaining enough, otherwise you could probably stay away from this one.
