    Okay, someone explain to me what's the difference between Darth Maul and Bobba Fett. They're both underwritten side characters with neat designs.
    So why is it so shameful to like Darth Maul just like Bobba Fett

    ugh you three are just fucking homo manchildren bitching on solo. simply because you hate strong independent women in movies overshadowing your insecure gay closet love for your man hero Han Solo. That you've had for han solo since you first jacked off for the first time. And all the bad reviews of the new star wars movies are either made by people like you or bots. Because there is no logic in the world.
    Ugh. im gonna go rip the fucking head of a hamster now. To bring down my lesbian self-righteous feminazi ego. Or else my self-righteous feminazi ego will get so high i will literally explode into approx 100 little misandric Kathleen Kennedy Anuses before they literally implode under their extreme own weight of being a self-righteous lesbians feminazi anus. Into nothing and cease to exist because it ran out of intelligence, leaving shit stains on the floor spelling out The force is female.
    in caps....
    ....approx a hundred times..
    Just like a Star imploding into a black hole because it ran out of Hydrogen.

    I just rewatched the 1995 Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Lopez Christmas train heist classic Money Train. I’m now pretty sure that this film was the influence for Solo. You guys have to watch the heist scene in the 1995 film and compare it to the heist in Solo! I need to see the Solo heist with the reggae Money Train song over it! Ha ha

    I thought Solo was good. It explained all the back stories of the things in the original trilogy. How he met Chewbacca. How they made the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs. How Solo won the Millennium Falcon. How he acquired his pistol.

    I'm not even trying to talk shit but, there is something very precious about an older overweight white man declaring he hates Star Wars while wearing a Star Wars shirt. It sadly encapsulates everything about the "love/hate" of star wars fans who are also "no longer a fan".

    The boring heist and chase scene? you mean the thing you guys were asking for in Rogue one, and then you get it and you're still not happy? Just like every other typical fan boy who didn't enjoy the show?

      LabrnMystic MK I'm with you on the movie not being as bad as people say, but I understand their complaints, and they're saying the same thing they said in Rogue One - the heist should have BEEN the movie, not just a Star Wars set piece. To their credit, they praised the Kessel plan for the same reason - it was a heist that committed to actually having the tone of a heist movie.

    I'm a big Star Wars fan, like Mike, and still love the universe even after the last movie shat all over it, but I'm with Rich here. I quite liked Solo. it wasn't perfect, but it was thoroughly enjoyable. And as with Rogue One, it was a movie we didnt ask for or need, but somehow ended up being better than the main trilogy we Were waiting for. That's how i feel, anyway.

    Just throwing this out there for Producer Brains... attaching a character for the sake of drawing interest is okay, but if you instead allow innovative characters, you get EXPANDED universes.
    Also, no one knew who Han, Luke, or Leia was before A New Hope. The billion dollar money machine couldn't have existed without the risk of creating the first film. Stop trying to sell us the same old stuff. Please, for the love of all that is decent, either hire people interested in movie storytelling to assist in evaluating risks or GET INTERESTED IN MORE THAN JUST INVESTMENT RETURNS! You have killed so many potential New Hopes for the sake of SSDD because "it's trending" or "it sells already." You have killed other billion dollar franchises simply because you don't know anything about the art you're supporting and have claimed it's "risk management."

    The first like 10 minutes until they get to the airport was the worst part of the movie for me. It had so many tropes and the acting was terrible. It made me so nervous for the rest of the movie but actually enjoyed it from there until the end.

    Incorrect! George Lucas was not an idiot. Rewatch the scene; Obi-Wan clearly responds to the claim with a look of disbelief while the naive Luke doesn't. In the script tells it as "obvious misinformation". It's literally supposed to have been Han Solo making up a brag off the top of his head to tell to the two naive, wealthy strangers so he can get as much money as possible to pay off Jabba.
    But then Black Science Man did a thing where he didn't get the joke and complained about it.

    Lando is a pansexual. Dumbledore is a gay (and an Android). Next Bowser'll be into Latex and Smurfs, Optimus Prime will be into auto-erotic asphixiation...WHO THE HELL CARES ABOUT THE NON-RELEVANT SEX LIFE OF FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!? Too many people, obviously.

  • AndyOfSandy
    AndyOfSandy Month ago

    First off I have to say, I thought the movie was okay. I did not need it and if I didn't see it I would not be upset but it was an okay space drama in a star wars universe.

    Now I have watched all the silly cartoons. I really enjoyed the clone wars. In that one Maul reappears, but seeing Maul in this movie made no sense to me whatsoever. I have not kept up with a lot of the books, mostly because I only enjoyed one of them so far. Maul starts a underground empire in the show but then gets taken down in the show and he is captured by the emperor. In a book that takes place during this event it shows he escapes but when he heads back to the rest of his empire it is taken down and he goes into hiding. Now the clone wars ends and the empire begins and we get to Solo. Why the heck would Maul go back to trying to create an underground empire when it failed horribly the first time? So this part of the timeline is so confusing because then in Rebels, another show that occurs slightly before and up to A New Hope, Maul appears in that as a shadow in hiding being pursued by the empire. I just think this cameo makes no sense with our current timeline and I have been confused about it ever since.

    Apart from anything else, this movie was boring as fuck, and not just the first act; the whole fucking thing. And you like seedy stuff, Rich, fine, this movie doesn't really do it well.
    And, seriously, we need an explanation for why Han calls Chewbacca "Chewie"? GTFO of here with that shit.

    You can tell that Mike really loves Star Wars... but the decisions from the prequels mixed with Disney's conglomerate has worn him down so much that he's just done with the whole. It's actually kind of sad given that people think Mike is just a pure sardonic "hater" but he actually really has a love for the craft and the story of the OG Star Wars... but I love his slurred question at 38:05 really made me laugh a lot.

    If your reading this, God wants to tell you that Heaven is Real! Hell is Real and people are burning right now at this moment for many sins including unforgiveness, unbelief, hate, anger, lust and bitterness.
    He loves you so much that he gave us his only begotten Son The Lord Jesus Christ to take the punishment we deserve in Hell.
    If we humble our self, repent and accept his free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ right now by asking him, he will save you today!
    Now your new life begins by living for him, turning from your old ways and reading his word from this day forward.

    So apparently the Kasdan's did the Han shot first scene to "make it clear" but it does not really answer the question for real if they aalso did that to retcon the retcon and not only make it happen in Solo, but also in Episode 4. Seems still pretty confusing. One scene showing a character doing something will not make him/her do that always. They should have stated in interviews if they did that for Ep4 as well.

    I’m with Jay all the way! Just watched now - and glad I didn’t watch before... don’t mind the smallness of the story, but just don’t buy this as a Solo story. In the end, it doesn’t make me feel like it enhanced the SW story. Also there were just too many cringe moments.

    TESLA CØILS Month ago

    In defense of the cinematography: Those dark and gritty scenes with murkiness and low light helped portray the grim nature of war (that was a mud war - they were called Mudtroopers), it also helped with those dark smokey underbelly crime atmospheres. But, I am in line with Rich, I should probably let the adults talk :)
