One needs tequila for getting rowdy.
If you ever open a bottle of Clase Azul Ultra, which we starts at $21K where I work, I promise not to be rowdy and bring you models to sit with you and yours.
There is nothing as beautiful as The Death Star, fully armed and operational, in close orbit.
I loved seeing all the Imperial Officers as well, brings back the glory days.
It will be great writing back stories for these gallant, poise, ambitious, murderous men.
On the rebel side, I really want that High Command officer next to Mon Mothma to be, Commander Willard from A New Hope or General Rieekan from The Empire Strikes Back.

The soundtrack for the movie is superb.
Each major character is introduced with some music.
Since she is the biggest baddest of the bad in the film, Amanda Waller gets Sympathy for the devil.

They were all great. Well maybe not the gal playing Katana, she was meh. You could have had me in the costume and not tell the difference.
Will Smith I liked as Deadshot. I wished they made him do a little more tricky shots but he was good.
Jared Leto was good and did his own take on the Joker, which is good considering mimicking those that came before would not work here.
He took inspiration from the Batman comic "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth", which portrayed the Joker as a transcendent, unsettling and seductive person. Jared Leto also cites gospel music, shamans and Mexican cartels as an influence on the character.
Points in Jared Leto's favor -
He shaved his eyebrows in order to play the role to make him look more deranged and psychotic.
To try and find the perfect Joker laugh, Jared Leto tried publicly different laughs in New York City and Toronto to see which ones made people the most uncomfortable.
Jared Leto got so immersed in playing The Joker and he wouldn't break out of character on set even when he wasn't filming. He even sent his fellow cast members "Joker-like" presents: a rat to Margot Robbie and bullets to Will Smith, a soiled Playboy magazine to Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and a dead hog, anal beads and used condoms for the whole crew. Scott Eastwood, commented that Leto frightened him at times with his behavior.
The Joker's various clothes in the film are based on the clothes he wore in the Batman comics -
The tuxedo and white gloves comes from "Death in the Family" (1988)
The white coat and purple shirt comes from "Dark Knight Returns" (1986)
The Joker's brown waistcoat comes from "Joker" (2008).
Well worth the time!
Set I see your tenure at the Imperial High Ministry of Extra Planar Propaganda, Exploitation and Re Education was well worth its time.
Thank you, come again.
Sorry, I liked the Expanded Universe. I can't believe that they kept something from it! :)
While the late, great, Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo* is the poster boy for later EU, Star Wars Rebels has made a lot of very early circa 1980's Expanded Universe Canon again.
The Inquisitorius and the Imperial Security Bureau (via Agent Kallus), even Kenner Toy's troop transport, to name but a few.
