    See, that's my biggest problem with the film - very boring, and there should have been NO Sith Lord in it - Episode I is clearly set when Darth Vader is a child, so AT LEAST 30 years before Luke and Leia ever meet Han - so HOW is the Sith lord who dies at the END of Episode I IN THIS MOVIE???? Are we saying that when Luke and Leia meet Han, he's AT LEAST 50 years old?? How does Leia fall in love with him??? This was a committee movie with no heart (sorry, Rich) and had fanboy stuff in there just to get butts in the seat, NOT because it made sense in the SW universe.

    Also, why would Lando add an escape pod if it's common knowledge that these freighters carry escape pods?

    I still would have included Boba Fett in the Solo Project. It would have made it even better to have had him be the one to find him in Empire.

    Totally agree about the cinematography. Still, I didn't hate it, but I never need to see it again. One thing that really pisses me off, is how hard the prequels, and everything Disney has put out, have plundered the concept art Lucas rejects. Don't know what I mean? Lady Proxima is a Jabba the Hutt rejected concept. The Emperor's Shuttle in ep. III is an actual shuttle reject. etc. etc.

    Would have felt better about Solo:A Star Wars Movie if they hadn't killed Han as a plot device in Ep:7. Its hard to feel connected to a character you seen murdered by his son.

    The Solo movie needed to be more Guardians of the Galaxy and less whatever the hell it was. It needed to be a colourful, fun, witty, swashbuckling adventure story. It was the polar opposite of that.

    This movie wasn't a piece of shit - I also actually liked it. The origin of the name made me cringe SO HARD (I didn't mind L3, to be honest). Here's a better scenario (influenced by Half in the Bag Episode 15: Chicago Comic Con; it's still dumb as fuck, but I, as an armchair whitetrash loser, think it would have been way better and not annoying) - Han is in front of the empire DMV dude and he's asking him: "So what's your family name, Han?" As Han is trying to figure something out, a droid/some kind of droid like thing/a crate carried by a bunch of aliens passes, with some sort of insignia, which reads "50ll_0" or something, so he says "My last name is Solo". Again, it's dumb as fuck, but I think it would have worked better. HIT ME UP KATHLEEN, I'LL WRITE YOUR NEXT SW MOVIE BRO.

    The kid who did han was pretty good. The girl who did quira was terrible. The L3 character ruined it. Everyone thought Han would ruin it, and the irony is basically everything else did.

    I didn’t think L3 was bad at all. She had some funny lines and her dynamic with Lando entertained me. I think she was meant to be ridiculous and to me it wasn’t overdone. If she was actually a parody of Kathleen Kennedy she was a damn good one.

    The seedy underbelly isn't Star Wars, that is generic sci fi. Without the lightsabers, the Jedi, the Force, good verse evil, Star Wars is just a mediocre generic sci fi concept. Every person in the movie was zapped by the idiot ray. Every incident that happens not because it was necessary and logical for it to happen based on what came before but because that is what the writer decided to write, becoming a movie via deus ex machina and thus objectively a bad movie.

    "The idea that Empire uses trains is laughable... they have this thing called spaceships" - considering how moving large quantities of cargo nowadays is much cheaper by ships then by planes simply due to fuel consumption, I won''t be surprised if monorail transport is more efficient than shuttle in SW Universe provided we are transporting stuff through the same gravity well.

    I just realized. They should have got Chris Pratt to be Solo. That dude who played the solo character totally was going for a chris pratt vibe on the "I snap my fingers, your surrounded" Vibe. That said, Humungous space monster blocking their exit in hyperspace was bad ass!!! Plus the war shown in the beginning was brutal and awesome.

    God, I hated it when Darth Maul showed up. The only moment worse than that was when the imperial officer decided to name him Solo because he was alone. Jesus Christ. What terrible shlock.
    But at least it had something of a recognizable action movie arc. It didn't hate the fact that it was an action movie.

    I don't think I'm alone in requesting this, but instead of anymore Half in the Bag's, can we please get the Scientist Man origin story we've all been waiting for?
    Where did his iconic lab coat come from? His glasses? From whom and how did he inherit his classic pointer stick thing? How did he even become Scientist Man?! Was he bitten by a radioactive Scientist, thus turning him into Scientist Man, or was his Sciencing earned magically by defeating a Wizard in a game of wits? Who is his love interest? Who is his best friend turned bitter rival and what is the nature of the rift between them that can never be healed? Who are Scientist Man's parents and how did they tragically die? Because obviously, they tragically die, and we shouldn't ever be allowed to forget that about Scientist Man for longer than 5 minutes.

    There are indications of Lando being pansexual. He's attracted to his robot and he even flirts a bit with Han early on. I'm fairly sure in the scene near the end at the casino he's flirting with an alien too.

    I thought L3 was actually legit a really entertaining character. Like she's annoying but she's funny, and does have a pretty good point which is very relevant to the Star Wars Universe. She also had a decent arc by dying leading a prison rebellion and I liked her relationship with Lando a lot.

    I actually liked the robot lady because she was allowed to express herself as a figure of liberation without having to be a completely serious and uptight. I think she made a lot of people uncomfortable and that's something we have to interrogate about our culture and our biases towards how we see female figures in media. I'm kind of disappointed to see three white dudes sit here and talk about how the movie makes fun of social justice figures. Maybe you interpreted it that way because that's what you thought you would see? Personally I do not think the movie encourages us to take the robot lady's ideas as a joke at all. Her very played up and dramatic death after a whole movie including significant screentime and development for her demonstrates that she was supposed to be heroic. I do think that she frequently makes jokes and doesn't take herself seriously, but so does Luke in the last jedi. And yet he is clearly portrayed as a heroic character. When a Male character makes fun of himself we often take their side and laugh with him, yet oftentimes with a female character the same playful attitude is interpreted as making her the butt of the joke. I think the female robot really pushes a lot of boundaries and is an excellent character. I particularly like the way that her body is portrayed. She constantly makes reference to her 'sexual organs', the same way men frequently do for laughs in plenty of movies. If a woman were to do this onscreen, people would likely find it obscene. By having a female robot act out these body-related gags normally reserved for males, the robot demonstrates the double standard of body related humor in a very natural and effective manner. It essentially makes you question what it would be like if the robot was a real human, and I think the answer would make a lot of people uncomfortable. This makes it valuable as art.
    I also felt like your comments regarding Lando's pansexuality were very hegemonic. You simultaneously critiqued Donald Glover's performance for not taking risks and changing up Lando's character from the original movie, and then in the same breath you dismiss his pansexuality because 'it wasn't represented in the old movies'. I also feel like it totally was in the appropriate realm of interpretation from the original movies, because we know Lando flirts with Leia, but we ALSO see him frequently sharing a close bond with a Male named Lobot who happens to have a robot brain implant. I think it is not only justified in the original text but is also a fantastic interpretation that adds depth and believability to Glover's performance. Also, why are you guys so offended about a character being into robots? It's a galaxy far, far, away. They have no need to meet your standards that are antiquated even in this galaxy.
