    If you're referring to the one that made threads only to start advertising by bumping them 5 years later, then no they aren't.

    Finally watched rogue one and gotta admit it was much better than I expected.
    Donnie yen is my boy, the romance wasn't ham-fisted and that scene that has darth vader wading into those treacherous rebels made me want to flee for MY safety in real life. All three of those things I was worried about.

    Gotta love the attention to detail with the rebels, each rebel looks like they hand picked their own outfit from wardrobe. All the x-wings and droids are also customized in really neato ways. You get a distinct feeling that the rebel alliance really did pay a massive price to pull this all off and that they are the underdogs that have to resort to almost underhanded tactics. I found myself saying "rebel scum" as a starwars battlefront player all too often, it was a familiar sight. Speaking of sight, the cinematography is stellar which is almost a given for a starwars film, even though it sorta falls victim to the one biome per planet syndrome.

    It's not flawless, there's lots of exposition and the plot climax is obvious. This is probably because the audience actually does understand because of everyone having seen star wars. But still, it's the principle of the matter.

    Main thing I would've done to improve the movie, is remove everyone but Donnie Yen on the rebel side and call it "Donnie Yen vs the Empire." But I'm just being a hyperbolic fanboy. It was great, I liked it a lot.

    More or less agree with this.

    I remember a sarcastic twitter post making fun of a review that was headlined "Rogue One is the first Star Wars that actually feels like a war," saying that every Star Wars literally has the word war in it. But I can't help but feel like there's some truth to that headline.

    The question is whether or not that shitton of money outweighs the shitton of money provided by lobbyists who are against legalization (ie. from pharmaceutical corporations, private prisons, etc).

    I'm personally an advocate of complete decriminalization of all drugs, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon.

    Yooo Scarecrow and Cook, what's good.

    Yeah man I wish they would decriminalize drugs considering how hardcore what big pharma gives us can be. The line is so blurry it's almost indistinguishable.

    I don't believe there is a line. Drugs are drugs. Medicines are drugs. Poisons are drugs. Toxic substances are drugs. Some minerals are drugs. Hell, if you break them down enough even foods are just a bunch of different drugs smooshed together to make something edible. It's just variations in dosage and usage.
