Solo: A Star Wars Story
« on: May 31, 2018, 09:58:45 AM »
I can't imagine anyone that likes Star Wars not liking that movie regardless of whether you are good and smart and right thinking and loved the Last Jedi or you're a basement-dwelling reddit Nazi that hates women and did not like TLJ.

That was just 2 hours of quality, fun Star Wars filler. Solid B+
I will vow, for the sake of peace, not to complain about David Ross between now and his first start next year- 10/26/2015

It was quite good. Not all-time great, but perfectly cromulent. Did what I wanted, which was be a Star War.

I agree, and while the Reddit assholes are trying to take credit for the relatively modest box office opening for a Star War I really think they probably should have just pushed this one back a few months. Episode IX isn't due till December of 2019, because they waited till after TLJ's theatrical run was over to begin heavily marketing Solo and they scheduled it to compete with Infinity War and Deadpool 2 they really f--ked themselves. Later in the year would have been the perfect place to deposit a Competent But Not That Exciting Star War.

That and the only news forever about it was that it was troubled and the lead actor needed a coach (guess what: that happens all the time to actors of all experience levels).

It is interesting to me how much the rise of film blogs and film twitter and the insights into movie production we never had before can change people's perceptions of movies. Back in the day no one would have known shit about Solo outside of a few trailers and an Entertainment Weekly puff piece and they'd have gone to see it and rendered their judgment then. Now people carry an expectation of Solo being a patchy mess into the theater and look for seams that I honestly really don't think are there. Compared to other recent movies that are mashups of two different directors and a bunch of reshoots (cough Suicide Squad cough Justice League) it was not actually that easy to look at this movie and see where the different parts of it butted heads.

The only Star Wars movie that I have ever seen is the very first one.  Have I missed anything?

I was bored for the first 90 minutes. The last 35 minutes were fine. Predictable. Not much of a character arc for Han. I think I laughed with it more than anyone else of the 50 of us or so in the theater. It so badly wants to be another Marvel Universe. I dunno. Probably in the second Hulk range.

Far better than Rogue One.

Not looking forward to seeing Darth Maul in the upcoming Obi Wan gets revenge film.

They already took care of the Maul-Obi-Wan showdown on Star Wars Rebels. The whole point was Obi-Wan didnít need revenge
