Force Awakens was a retread of New Hope and a poor one at that. It might be ok to some one who had not seen New Hope. I thought the villain (Kylo Ren) was great until he took off his mask. Then I was like who let the emo into a Stars Wars movie. After watching, it I had the vague feeling I had seen this movie before. The writers in Hollywood are truly devoid of ideas, maybe this strike could get some new and vibrant blood in there instead of rehashing old ideas.
Rogue for me, it's a better movie and I did not see it before.
