Rogue One, Spoilers, and You

With the formal premiere of Rogue One tonight in Hollywood, with the film being screened for critics this weekend, with the embargo being lifted on Tuesday or Wednesday, with early birds in Europe getting to see the film around that time, and evening shows on Thursday in North America, stuff will start to come out about the film.

1. On Friday December 16, I will have an open thread set up by sometime in the morning PST. If you are not seeing the film on Thursday-Friday, avoid this thread until you do. I will not see the film until Sunday 12/18, so don’t expect my review in the comments until then.

2. There will be NO prequel bashing, taunting, baiting, or fighting in the comments. Any such comments will be deleted and trolls will be forever banished. If it gets out of hand, I will shut down the open thread and delete the whole thing.

3. Do NOT post spoilers on any other comment thread or post until after December 23. Some of you can’t or won’t see the film for a while and it’s just not realistic in this age of the internet to expect everyone to keep quiet about the movie for several weeks or months.

4. Any posts or discussion tying in themes, events, etc. of Rogue One with the saga as a whole are fair game after December 23.

5. The rules will be a little looser on the Facebook page. I’ve put a moratorium on spoilers until December 19. I’ll link to the open thread but any and all spoilers are fair game as of Monday December 19.

    Not that it has anything to do with your well thought out rules, but Rogue One may turn out to be the Star Wars movie for folks who do not like Star Wars.

    Rogue One was awesome.

    Now TFA, THAT was a Star Wars film for folks who don’t like Star Wars…
