    Thinking about this a bit later... can't they hire a writer who sort of understands writing where people of certain character came from? It's not that hard: you look at Han Solo in ANH and he's a certain type of person; a type of person you actually know in real life (we all do) and you kinda look into what's in their past. I mean is "a deep, loving relationship in which HE is the faithful one" REALLY the most reasonable thing that comes to mind for HAN fukken SOLO? Well maybe... if you're dumb. And why didn't the Producers kick in and say "look, that's the same stuff Anakin had in his past. Write something different". Remember how LUKE was very interesting because he fell for a girl that turned out to be his sister? that was INTERESTING.

    Disney will never put homosexual characters in their films because China would block it from being shown in their country, and we all know how massive of a market they are.


    Just watched it and to be honest it was good 👍👍 didn't need it but was good

    The producers of solo are genius. Film the movie to make it look pirated and people will get pissed off with the quality so will pay for a high quality version.

    I still don't understand your hatred of Rogue One. So a story about how they stole the plans for the Death Star contains footage of the Death Star...
    And that's a problem because........... I got nothing.

    I have to say I actually quite liked Solo. I'd say it was better than Rogue One and The Last Jedi. I didn't like the L3 character much because it felt forced, shoved in, and very on the nose given the current political climate - but that's a very minor niggle. I don't know, overall I thought the film was fine given what it was.

    For the Darth Maul isn't a great character, I must ask;
    Does anyone in the Star Wars Universe need more characterization than being a demon looking dude with a DOUBLE LIGHTSABER?

    you do fail to give Ron Howard credit in salvaging the film and making it at least enjoyable. See what happens when you hire a good director to direct these high pressure important movies. If they got Howard in the beginning it would have saved $200 million, and maybe be a bit better too.

    @28:10, the 12 parasecs thing was definitely because Lucas had no idea what a parsec was, but it was retconned in the old EU and sort of in this movie to be because only a ship as fast as the millennium falcon would have been capable of not getting trapped by the gravity of one of the black holes, which is why, supposedly, the line makes sense in reference to speed. That line means that the ship is really fast because the shortcut is impossible for any slower ships.
    Still, I prefer the original idea other people have mentioned where he was lying out his ass in order to gauge how experienced they were with space travel and how much money he could get out of them

    First of all Rogue One was amazing so of course I totally disagree with any crap talk of that movie. Second I enjoyed Solo I thought Alden Ehrenreich did a great job. Gotta remember this is young Han. Donald Glover did great as well. Now as for the romance in the film, it was just ehh. Really thought she was gonna be killed but was really surprised to see Darth Maul.

    I am sad that this movie made Han into a worse pilot then I though he was. I mean now his achievements can all be attributed to his ships AI.

    I'm tired of the fact that Lucas will just not admit he didn't know what a parsec was....or that Parsec means something else in A DIFFERENT GALAXY, A LONG TIME AGO.

    So I finally just saw this on an airplane but refrained from watching this review for spoilers until I actually watched it. The points about cinematography are SPOT ON--I thought there was a problem with my screen on the plane and just brushed it off but it happened ALL the time. Although this was a terribly unnecessary movie, generally, I'm sort of with Rich here--I liked it, because it was FUN. I enjoyed the shit out of watching this--it was fun. I didn't get all spooled up as a SW fan, just went with it. A buddy heist movie. It was OK.

    The parsec is a unit of distance, not of speed, right... so in "Solo" they actually made sense of the "made the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs" thing. The Kessel Run is probably longer than 12 parsecs, and Han did it in less parsecs cause he took a shortcut. It's like "I did a marathon in 35 km" (marathons are 42 km long).

    This is the first of the modern Star Wars movies I actually enjoyed. It was essentially reskinned Firefly (complete with train heist, gunslinging, suspicious black lady second-in-command, etc.). The lighting decision was probably to make it seem grittier, and I feel like it worked well enough, especially in the trenches. I only found it difficult to tell what was going on in the fight with Chewie.
    I'm usually bored by blockbuster action, especially chase scenes, but I enjoyed them in this film. That might have something to do with the fact that there weren't 500 cuts per minute. When jumps occurred, they tended to add something to the scene (action and reaction in the same shot).
    It was definitely flawed, but it was a fun space romp, and at this point that's the most I could possibly hope for.

    I finally watched it. I’m with Jay on this. Yawn. Cuts in the film were short as fuck as well, to the point where it felt like a cinematic version of a strobe light. My spouse was so bored in the third act he started timing the cuts, and the longest cut he counted was 9 seconds.

    Jim Parkin 19 days ago +1

    After having played a lot of the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire RPG from Fantasty Flight, and THEN watching this for the first time, I liked it way more than I expected. Jay's comments about the climax in the office and the overall sentiment of just immersion in the setting, not strictly pointing to THINGS WE KNOW, worked very well. Star Wars writ large is an ugly, lived-in place with a lot of rough edges. This film actually portrayed that quite well.

    There really isn't much to do with Maul in the movies, he already had his final showdown with Obi-Wan in the Rebels animated series. He was used well and made a more interesting character in The Clone Wars animated series, other than adding additional stories in that medium I don't see the need to expand much upon Maul beyond what is already there.

    I agree with most of the video, except that Rogue 1 kicks every other post-OT Star Wars movie to the kerb, including Solo, which was okay but kind of bland. Rogue 1 was willing to show the not-nice aspects of the rebellion, whereas in this film Han, a supposed outlaw from the wrong side of the tracks, seemed a bit too squeaky clean by comparison. He was also way too quick to help the rebels at the end. He needed to be more self-interested like he is when we meet him at the start of Epidode 4.
