Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILERS)

I went into this movie with fairly low expectations and thought it was good.  As far as a stand alone film, I think Rogue One was done better, but Solo is entertaining.

I really enjoyed that movie.  Not deep or super imaginative, but Iím with Nick, it was ďfunĒ. 
 
My expectations were fairly moderate to low, and this met or exceeded those expectations. 

My biggest complaint with sci fi movies is usually dumb plot holes that donít even seem relevant (my major gripe with TLJ).  This had no major holes and flowed nicely.

My only complaint was the Black Sun leader reveal at the end.  Kind of total crap, unless it factors in a later Kenobi movie or something.  Totally unnecessary.

I loved Lando, and would have liked to see a little more Han/Lando bromance.

I think I would be up for a sequel.

I liked most of the characters. Was fine with Han. Man crush on Donald Glover only grew. Liked Woody, Qi'ra, L3. The "scene" was whatever to me. Story was fine. Just not handled perfectly.

What's the deal with tentacled creatures in Star Wars?

I don't know where I would rank this one, but pretty far behind Rogue One I think, which seems like the best comparison being the only other standalone film to date. I didn't dislike it, but i didn't feel like it exceeded my expectations in any way, which were pretty measured going in.

I think in retrospect, there were probably too many previews because I felt like I had seen most of the movie already played out in snippets, aside from a few surprises. I thought the cast was fine, there were a couple of plot points that felt weak or a little forced, but nothing too glaring.

Well, except for THAT scene. W T F?!? I don't even know where to start with that one. It was a jarring moment that really took me out of the rest of the movie I felt like. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the reasoning behind it.

If there was a letter between B and C that would be my grade I think. I don't feel a strong desire to see this again, though I'm sure I will.

I am glad I was able to stay away from spoilers for this movie, because when that scene played out and it was obvious the combination of performances at work to bring the character to life, it was the icing on the cake for me with this movie. Solo was a fun Star Wars movie, could end up being my favorite Disney-era movie so far (and I have enjoyed them all, so this is not meant to be taken as a knock on TLJ).

For me the best revelation was an explanation/nod to the scene from ESB when C-3PO is trying to communicate with the Falcon and getting frustrated. It also gives meaning to the sentiment that the Millennium Falcon IS a character.

I thought it was fun. I'd go no more than that

I stopped by on my way home today.  Stuff is on sale for 40-60% off now.  I grabbed a couple of Nerf guns and a few hundred rounds for me and my daughter.  I told her when that stuff went on a real sale I'd scoop some up.  Most of the actual guns were sold, so I figured it was now or never unless I wanted to be stuck with the zombie crossbow and nothing else.  My daughter will be stoked when I surprise her with them.

Exactly.

Basically if You kept coming into every topic On Star Wars (not even TLJ...  it could be toys, Han Solo, any rumor of a future film whatever), and basically said ďitís too bad Disney ruined all of Star Wars with their SJW Agenda!  The OT is the only real Star Wars!Ē, and you didnít just say that one time but Every single thread or the comments below every ad or trailer...  thatís basically what is going on on sites that have Disqust integrated in them, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit...  everything.

I posted on my twitter feed something just saying I found the background idea of a Solo character (a droid...  Iím trying to be completely non spoilers vague here) to be funny.  Some guy who didnít even follow me, so he had to have actively been searching for the subject in some way, started in with Disney SJW Agenda, Star Wars is forever ruined, Lucas never did this, I donít want messages in my Star Wars blah blah blah.

Itís often not even remotely articulate too.  This guy at least had coherent thoughts even though I thought they were dumb.  Usually itís just blind hate without much logic applies and a whole lot of ďIím all for diversity BUT.......Ē, and whatever comes next just makes you sad that these are or were your peers.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #? - Boba Fett?
« Last post by Nicklab on May 24, 2018, 06:51 PM »
Read all about it at The Hollywood Reporter.  Writer/Director  James Mangold is reportedly attached to the long rumored Boba Fett movie.

An interesting note?  Writer/Producer Simon Kinberg had previously been reported as working on the Boba Fett film, and had the originally slated director fired based on his conduct in the production of the Fantastic 4 reboot.  Kinberg has a history of working with Mangold, most recently on "Logan".  Given their previous working relationship?  Hiring Mangold makes sense.

Justin's take on TLJ would be how I'd expect a rational Star Wars fan to react. You didn't love it. You had plenty of issues. You shared those issues and discussed/debated it online.

At no point did you decide Kathleen Kennedy needed to die or declare to never enjoy another Star Wars entity again.
