The second half plays out like nothing so much as one of those daring-do war films we British used to make, were pretty much everyone gets killed in the steady progression of the mission. It's heroic, but tinged with a sadness that makes it clear, war is hell, but sometimes you have to fight regardless. Overall the film puts the 'War' into the Star Wars franchise in a way that none of the previous films has quite done so before. It's a good movie, but it didn't throw the nostalgic joy in of last years release, and the adventurous joy of A New Hope, was definitely absent.
Speaking of Star Wars, after a whole frigging year we managed to get the Imperial Assault campaign going again.
