    They should have done a movie about the Knights of Ren, a Snoke movie or something that fleshed out the new trilogy which is painfully bare bones. They have to stop with the sjw feminist crap as well. They need to show men and women working together, not a bunch of sassy Mary Sue bitches kicking the incompetent males in the nuts to score some Hollywood back-patting points.

    Loved this movie its the closest we will ever get to to the exspanded universe stories from the old comics and books i read when the OT was all there was. They gave Chewbacca a proper character arc he had stuff to do and was next to Empire the movie where he has his best scenes. He isnt Han's servant or pet he is friend they are great together. The story is great too the feeling and atmosphere of the Starwars criminal world. Woody Harrellsons Becket is a awesome character and i love the way they mirror him with Han in New hope.

    Who's to blame? The Last Jedi. Never seen a movie completely destroy everything set up to the prior film like that one did so everyone probably expected Solo to either be the same or boycotted it as due to TLJ.

    I watched it for the Lore. How Han met Chewbacca and Legendary Wookie Strength, Where Han got his Infamous Blaster(A hand held Rifle mind you),Hans first Mission and the Advice from Beckett that became his Motto("Trust No One"), The Kessel Run, The Beginning of the Rebellion, Han and Lando's Mercurial Friendship.....and Han's Beginning. That being said I don't understand one thing, Crimson Dawn was one of the five Syndicates (The Money generating arm of the Empire)....yet they were stealing from the Empire..... essentially stealing from themselves..........what was Darth Maul up to(besides making Qi'ra his apprentice after she killed her Master((Rule of Two))......I want to see THAT movie.
    *Edit: Not sure if Qi'ra is Lore.
    *Missed Opportunity: Escaping the Maw -Hyperdrive Failure Han should have said "It's Not my Fault" because it was his Idea.......shame 😒.

    Finally got around to watching it on DVD. 1 - Not absolutely horrible, but not very good either. 2 - Tried to cram in too much backstory. Name, check. Childhood, check. Millennium Falcon, check. Lando, check. Chewbacca, check. Kessel run, check. 3 - Ending was horrible. Leave Darth Maul dead (yea, I know Clone Wars resurrected him). Terrible awful idea best left in a cartoon. You don't bring characters back from dramatic on-screen deaths without cheapening every dramatic event. If writers are willing to ret-con away something everyone saw happen clearly on-screen, well then nothing is off limits. Look up Dallas season 9. I guess Snoke is probably still alive since he getting chopped in half is only a flesh wound.

    we all know why Solo failed. i waited to rent it and it's actually pretty good. easily as good as TFA. not as good as Rogue One, but a solid effort. i hope they make a sequel to TFA some day.

    Idea for SW Anthology film:
    "Maul: A Star Wars Story"
    After "Kenobi: A Star Wars Story" of course after "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
    Forming a Darth Maul Anthology Trilogy of sorts. It's a good save IMO what do y'all think?

  • submissivelover
    submissivelover Month ago

    The casting was clearly the issue. There was not a single solid performance on the screen. Alden and Donald were fucking horrendous. Truly garbage, unbelievably disappointing. I think the film was a fine adventure film, Ron Howard just has that affect, it failed on the performance end, the acting routinely spoiled the experience for me. They should have gone with an impressionist, it was stupid to make not particularly great actors do impressions, better to assist impressionists into stronger performances as actors in general.
    I don't understand the commitment to Alden Ehrenreich, he so clearly wasn't the right choice and yet every warning was ignored. He doesn't look like him, sound like him, act like him, was too short.
    I greatly disliked The Force Awakens, i saw it for free with a friend and noticed immediately i was watching "A New Hope" with a female.

    I didn't see Solo in theaters because I was sore about The Last Jedi. So was my wife.
    I bought it on DVD and watched it with her. It's a shame we didn't see it in theaters, because we really liked it.
    Doesn't change the fact that I, and many others, didn't see it because of the disappointment inflicted upon us by The Last Jedi.

    The boycott was a big part. Personally, I say good on those people who are boycotting the film. Glad they are making a statement against the Disney movies. I would boycott myself, but I didn’t mind Solo, as I said in my review. Please check it out.

    When Solo was in the Theaters, I went to see Deadpool 2. I hadn't even heard of it until I saw a movie poster for it on the wall... not as an upcoming movie but one that was already playing. I only just saw it yesterdayas a rental and I really enjoyed it. Given how bad the 'talk' about it was, I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it all worked in the end. Sure, it wasn't the best of Star Wars but it was a lot better than the prequels.

    I didn't see it because 1 I was burnt out on Star Wars at that point and 2 I just didn't know it came out. I enjoyed wail watching it but thinking back I see why people didn't like it. If this wasn't a "Solo" story I but random character it would an alright story.

  • james willems
    james willems 2 months ago

    This is just my opinion but the reason i didn't watch solo (and also last Jedi) is because i feel like the main reason for watching a movie isn't present anymore in star wars films and that is being told a good story..
    What im trying to say is that the star wars films aren't trying to tell a story but just giving us fan service so they can cash in on the franchise the plot just doesn't feel natural with cocky characters cracking jokes and action without context instead of giving us good character development. Say what you want about the prequels but they knew what they we're doing telling a tragic story of Anakin becoming darth vader while also expanding thé universe with interesting new lore.
    Im sure that a lot of people will disagree with me but this is my reason for not seeing new star wars movies

  • GoofyOldGuyPlays

    I'm surprised when you mentioned the "Boycott", you didn't mention the "Boycott" due to the horrible SJW influence...which is why I didn't see it. I'm 57, saw the original when it was in the theaters. Followed through all of them (even the gawd awful prequels and remakes). THIS is the one I called it quits on.

    Finally sat down to watch it and was pretty neutral about it really. Expectations were low. Felt similar to Rogue one. What I definitely seen right away was the fact that they had to tie a lot in with just the one movie. I think giving it at least two parts would of made it better. Was like he gets his blaster, he meets Chewbacca, gets falcon. Rapid fire leaving less detail which is what the fans drool over. We want stupid details we can speculate over. In a new hope no one new what a parsec was but we liked talking about it. Stuff like that.

    Same here... I've just got around to watching Solo online now because the Last Jedi was so SHIT.. And Solo has joined it in the toilet bowl as a smaller slightly less smelly turd... But its still a turd... This dude here is skirting around the obvious issue... Fans boycotted Solo because TLJ sucked and Disney blamed the fans....

    Niceguy Eddie 2 months ago

    Didn't see it in the theater. Finally watched it last night, and acrtually really enjoyed it. (Hey: My expectations were set VERY low!) But there is no escaping that fact that this is not a movie that ANYBODY wanted. (We wanted KENOPBI! lol) Couple that with all the other stuff... studio meddling, poor marketing, bad timing, too soon/saturation, and it was doomed from the start. Still had fun watching it though, even if it is one of the lesser entries.

  • Jake Anderson

    I liked Last Jedi, I liked it even more after watching Rian Johnson explain some of the story choices he made (still incredibly dislike Luke throwing the sabre over his shoulder).
    That said, I did not feel a drive/need to see Solo in theaters. I saw it on (digital) video, and wish I had seen it in the theaters.
    There WAS one question this film answered that I've wanted answered for a long time...and that is "How did Chewie and Solo end up together." The answer to that question and how it was presented was ABSOLUTELY the best part of the film for me. Once that scene was complete, I was officially on board for the duration.

    I hated last Jedi, and refused to watch another SW movie. And I heard Solo was all just a SJW flick. Just watched it. And I have to say it was fucking awesome.
    Huge SW nerd, I was the DM for the west end games SW RPG so the lore, and the fucks are given. And watching this, even if some of it was changed. There is still much held to the old lore.
    Movie was just fun as hell to watch. I was wrong about almost everything.

    I love this channel. But is Disney now producing your channel. Cause this video makes me think it is. Solo was boycotted because of the last jedi everyone knows it. But not just because of the last jedi but insulting the fans and telling us we don't care what you think and this is the way is going to be so if you don't like it don't watch it. So we didn't.!.!

    Solo was just a story no one really wanted. Then you add in the terrible set stories, and changes, and it never had a real chance.

    I didn’t go see it in theatres, because Infinity War was my whole theatre budget that month. Plus, moviepass didn’t make it available only area, so there was zero chance I was spending extra money on it.

    Thank you for addressing "some" of the reasons as to why "Solo, a Star Wars story" flopped at the box office. No one of those commenting below fully agree with you because we all know that there is "the elephant in the room" that has to be ignored by all those (like yourselves) who are associated with the current viewpoints of Lucasfilm and of Disney. We understand that you have families to feed and telling the truth often leads to unemployment (for some) or being labelled horrible things (as many of us, SW long time loyal fans have experienced) by those "few" in control of things right Now! I am looking forwards to hear your review of "why" SW episode IX flopped at the box office (when it comes out in 2019)

  • Tiago Baenre
    Tiago Baenre 2 months ago

    The reason why it flopped is because Ron Howard directed it and his movies are just eeeh..there I guess. And I watched The Solo movie and the Sith Lord in the movie was sooo crappy and cheap make up job that it looked like a low budget movie made bad guy. The movie was sooo boring and they had the girl in it from West World and shes a AWSOME actress and she was probably like: wtf am I doin in this crappy movie. :) And Kylo Ren is such a HUGE whimpy sith that they should have just made him turn to the light side cause its sooo comical seeing him try to put on The Sith Big Boy Shoes and act like a real sith. OMG sooo funny!!!!!!!

    The reason why solo failed, isn’t because it wasn’t a good film, there were points that were annoying, particularly the SJW android. It was because of the pure belligerents of the newest and most prevalent ideological driven members of Lucasfilm who were quite vocal, plus the results of the Last Jedi and people being so disgusted with the film.
    Because this has continued even up to now, I believe that episode nine or suffer the same fate

    I watched this last night and liked it, alot and it explained a number of things, everything you've highlighted is just opinion.

If you're a fan of star wars enjoy the ride and dont judge or nit pick every little thing . And I mean come on. The scenes where Han finally pilots then Chewie joins him.. was down right awesome!

    Solo was made to not have whatever he achieved in the future mean much, and no one seemed to give a shit about either his death or his own son being the murderer in TLJ.

I am not part of any Boycott, but what happened in the other movies made me have about no enthusiasm.

  • Stirgid Lanathiel
    Stirgid Lanathiel 3 months ago

    I liked the Solo movie.
    Sure, the story didn't show us the Han we once knew. Sure, the droid was a frankly insulting strawman SJW that seemed to only exist to pander to the anti-crowd (and this is coming from someone who is not pro-SJW; mocking people you disagree with is still bad form). But it delivered a classic Western-style adventure movie that didn't pretend to be anything more than that.
    I didn't go immediately, because I didn't care enough to. And that was because... The Last Jedi was awful. Absolutely bloody awful. Gods, what a train-wreck that was.
    The Force Awakens wasn't very good, but to me it looked like a promise of greater things to come. A drawn-out and somewhat shoddy foundation of something that could become better. Clumsy writing, strawman nazis and strawman centrists aside, it could have been the kick-off of something good.
    Here's what I expected The Last Jedi to be:
    The Strawnazis turn out to be a legitimate threat; they blew up a planet! The Republic thanks the Rebels, and asks them to take the lead in taking down the Strawzi regime. They discover that, in secret, Snoke has been building up an Empire in the Outer Rim. Maybe even from Dromund Kaas or something. He was just waiting for the Palpatine stuff to blow over so he could take his chance and conquer the weakened Republic worlds.
    Meanwhile, Rey gets a lesson in humility when training with Luke. She learns more about the Force, and about Luke's uniqque view of it. After all; it was Luke who rediscovered the age-old truth that 'There is no Light, there is no Dark, there is only the Force.' She fucks up, strays from the balance, and Luke pulls her away from the darkness. Then, her training incomplete, for some odd reason she needs to rejoin Our Heroes (mirroring the origtrig). We, as viewers, can only hope that Rey will not fall to temptation, will have learned restraint, as she goes to save her friends.
    Her friends, meanwhile, have been captured in Kaas City. It was all a trap! The Republic Fleet is defeated, and Snoke takes control of Republic Space. But the film ends with Rey catching up with her friends, and with her help, they get to flee the planet.
    Queue film three: Rey and squad have joined a pocket of resistance again, and now they're going to take on Snoke and... Adam Driver Oceans Eleven-style. Film three is a classic spy movie, with a lot of Coruscant's underworld involved. Thinking Black Sun or the Justicars. They infiltrate high society, then follows a cool lightsaber battle on top of a Coruscant tower, something sappy happens that makes... Adam Driver realize that he was wrong all along and show remorse. Then... Adam Driver tells Rey that Snoke is hiding out in the Old Jedi Temple, where he is absorbing all the information from all the datacrons.
    Rey and Friends take a speeder, they are followed by Coruscant guards, there is a speeder chase through the city. Crashing speeders... Good stuff.
    The Rey Foundation for Restorative Rhetoric enters the temple, and find Snoke. A couple of Stormtroopers barge in with a black robed person behind them... Snoke orders them to attack while force-slapping the muggles against the wall, but Adam Driver is the robed person, and he kills the two stormtroopers. The fight starts in earnest; Rey and ... Adam Driver fight the monstrously magical Snoke, while Imperial Guard storm in. The nomag Rey Brigade shields the force fight from the Imperial Guard's weapons, and everyone fights. There is some hilarious BB-08 action and bleeps. Everyone loves that shit. The scene ends with Snoke delivering a killing blow to Rey, Adam Driver intercepting the blow, granting Rey the opening she needs to kill Snoke.
    In the background, the Strawzi strongholds are stormed by gangsters (backed up, of course, by a Corellian Corvette and/or the Millennium Falcon), and the Republic is saved.

    the ONLY reason that I did not get excited about Solo... is because I didn't like the choice of actor. I actively disliked their choice of actor and felt that 3 of the other prime candidates leading up to the casting were ALL better choices. From the day that they announced the cast, I had already decided not so waste my money on it.
    IF they had cast Anthony Ingruber, I would have gone out to see it opening week.

    This is probably not a popular opinion, but I think Solo was better than The Last Jedi
