  • Disney is ruining the Star Wars franchise.

    By Craig McFarland
    Sorry Walt. Disney is becoming something you were not intending it to become.
  • If this is what Star Wars is supposed to be...

    If this is what Star Wars is supposed to be like, then count me out. I didn’t grow up with the original trilogy. We I finally did see it, I thought it was good (7/10) but not some masterpiece. TFA and Rogue One I thought were pretty on par with the original trilogy. Fun and entertaining, that’s pretty much it. Ironically, TLJ was the first Star Wars movie I thought was great (the second overall that I’d rate 8/10, the first being Empire Strikes Back). It’s one of the only SW movies that actually has any depth. I consider plot holes nitpicks, so any actual plot holes (I see a lot of people bring up holes that aren’t there in the first place). The character arcs were phenomenally written and some great action set pieces. I remember thinking “this is what a Star Wars movie should be.” But apparently not... Idk, I thought Solo was alright. It wasn’t great, but certainly not terrible either. It had some cringe-worthy dialogue (one of the things TLJ actually fixed, but I digress) and quite the predictable formula. Many narrative elements felt forced in just to be a Han Solo origin story. Han Solo has absolutely no arc, and I felt it was trying so hard to be fun that it failed to be deep or meaningful in anyway. But reading these reviews, apparently Ron Howard “gets it” and this is what Star Wars is “supposed to be”. So apparently that means nothing thematically impactful or powering, and just fun entertainment and no plot holes, got it. Sorry, Star Wars is clearly not for me.
  • A fun ride

    I enjoyed this. It had some mandatory Hollywood social garbage and revisions in it, but it didn’t break it. This is a standalone Star Wars movie, so the plot was fun but not deep. Acting was good. The actor portraying the young Han Solo did a good job. Seriously folks, takes courage to even attempt to take on Ford’s Han Solo. The movie plays out like a novel, which is very nice considering the garbage we’ve been getting from Star Wars lately. I’ve been a Star Wars fan since I was 7 years old, this is ranked as 3rd or 4th on my favs list.
  • Slow and predictable

    By Undercross
    I could have written this story better. Two stars is a gift. Won’t buy or rent any Star Wars movies going forward. Watched this for free on netflix. Star Wars story lines are now awful. Avoid and may the force disappear never to return. Good Bye Star Wars...it has not been fun.
