    This movie was better than I expected, and I also enjoyed it more than Rogue One. The characters were more fun and memorable.

    one of my biggest complaints was the pointless addition of having his real name not be Han why even bother to go through with that? And in the movie he even mentions his father and how they repaired ships and what not so why wouldnt he have a full name? According to this movie when Luke was born his name shoulda been Luke Solo lmao geeez

    I think every Star Wars movies made after the original 6, are not so good like they used to. The new canon is a total garbage. I've read most of the SW books but the new canon doesn't make sense. George Lucas has to take the director chair once again and re-buy the franchise from Disney, which is destroying it.

    talking about physical de aging .. actually ... i love it , I LOVE IT ! so realistic and so fitting ... can`t get why people complain.. but again, people complain about everything ... tho I am cgi hater most of the item , atmosphere cgi or practical in any case must be believable , thats why transformers are shit and Jurrasic Park is legendary in such department

    I didn't mind L3
    I think if R2 spoke english he'd come across a lot similar. As I understand it, droids are used as slave labour and spies (which is why they're not allowed in the cantina.) If they don't have consistent memory wipes then their artificial intelligence develops a personality.
    A Westworld type situation is probably always a possibility in the Star Wars universe.
    I for one am excited they're finally exploring this in Star Wars (droid rebellion on Kessel was the best!)

    My summary of their analysis of the characterization, "I didn't like that the characters weren't how they were in the trilogy." "Yeah, the only thing I disliked more was that they just like they were in the trilogy. ". Can't be pleased.

    The actor of Chewbacca is a finnish guy. Maybe he reminded the crew that Treräs Käsi (btw. it means Steel hand) is a nice joke. But I like the idea better that the guys would watch your videos for inspiration. ;)

    Now that I think about it, I wouldn’t mind a reboot of Teras Kasai, if they got Netherrealm to do it. Imagine if they included a Mortal Kombat/Injustice story mode.

    I can't explain why every body was clapping when the movie was over including myself. I guess it was because we liked it and we had fun.

  • D Bonds

    If ‘it was okay’ meant ‘its bad’ then id agree. Dont think this origins story did Any Justice to the character, solo in this film felt the same from start to finish - no transformation. Pretty lackluster of an origins story.
    The Actor doesnt have Any vibe of han whatsoever, if i didnt know this movie, the only way ill know hes han is coz hes standing next to chewie. Unconvincing han solo.

  • Teamcardgames
    Teamcardgames 8 days ago

    To be perfectly honest, I hate Star Wars rebels for how terrible it is to the actual franchise and the only reason why it’s good is because it has clone wars characters that got more character development than the actual main characters in the and the writers of rebels is just telling you to go watch clone wars on Netflix and I feel that the ending of rebels is not good that’s just my opinion and I hope everyone understands that.

    Teras Kasi is actually the martial art style that maul uses, so it's supposed to connect the two characters

    Qi'ra's fighting skill didn't amount to nothing. She took down Han easily and she actually fought Vos and killed him.

    Star Wars was real form me. Han Solo is Harrison Ford so this has to be a young Harrison ford not a character playing Solo but not Ford. I feel like I'm going though a break up.

    With them talking about the multiple directors, I'm surprised they didn't reference the fact that apparently Han's actor was so awful that he needed an acting coach with him on every single scene.

    I just assumed Darth Maul's appearance was either a plot hole, or another being of Darth Maul's race who was not actually Darth Maul but for some reason has a double bladed light saber. The person who was with me assumed it was Darth Maul's son or grandson or something.

    • MisfitKitten
      MisfitKitten 10 days ago

      Yeah, because Maul was killed (initially) when Anakin was a kid, and Han is supposedly 10 or so years older than Anakin's CHILDREN. I know Yoda made it to 900, so it might be feasible, but...note that nobody actually called him Darth Maul.

  • Adam Walcott
    Adam Walcott 12 days ago

    The parsec bit is funny, although you have it backwards: in science, "light years" are irrelevant whereas the "parsec" is the proper scientific unit of measurement for distance. Yes - most, if not all astronomers care what a parsec is. Either way, a parsec is defined using Earth's orbit around the Sun so the argument is mute considering all of this takes place a long time ago, in a galaxy far away from here. A parallax arc second would have a different definition in the star wars universe.

    as a fan of Star Wars since 1977 when I sat on my dad's lap to watch the original I thought this movie was fantastic. it's the movie I've been waiting for for 40 years. and you have to assume that Chuy's mother was the Wookie that he rescued because that's Cannon.

    Laurence Clifford 14 days ago

    I would have preferred Spaceballs -a Hand Solo movie. The greyness and murkiness in colour tone was to invoke an oppressive atmosphere -fantasies of ww1 (EA’s battlefield 1) -hey we’re in the trenches guys. I thought L3-37 was amusing but since y’all a buncha white ManBoys and feel threatened by strong female robots i get your passive aggression. Alden is a solid actor and i would be interested in the next two movies. There’s room for Solo to transform into the Solo you guys obviously had a boy crush on. Da seeds have been set i.e, ’his type’ tells him he’s the good guy then betrays him for doing a noble act, hard lesion learned, Solo is heart broken -end of act/movie one. The timeline is weird Aiden is too old to play young Han, but the original concept was more of a space romp not a wow fan boys another SW movie to get hard on about, the SW fans base is a little toxic right now.
