Solo wasn't too bad. It's a good heist film. It's not really a Star Wars film, but if you take it as it's own thing it's enjoyable. I was happy they didn't overindulge the nostalgia like they did with Rogue One. Sure, they still deemed it necessary to hit just about every beat of something Han said once in a film (winning the Falcon, the Kessel Run, the gangster on Tatooine with a big job, and so on).

The Last Jedi was the film the series needed, but it could have been executed a lot better. They needed to move on and stop relying so much on the past. I was glad to see where the series went. The narrative of the film itself had some pretty poor pacing issues though, and some shit that just didn't make any sense. But I give them props for trying. At least it wasn't a retread designed to give fanboy's hardons like Force Awakens and especially Rogue One.

I don't mind that they are adding more women and minorities to Star Wars and all the crap that Mens Rights Activists and stupid 4channers complain about. I want to see them move the story past the Skywalker family and expand the Star Wars story.

But TLJ is a shitty film. The stupid jokes at the beginning are immediately off-putting. Then the central part of the plot is about a group of ships trying to slowly outrun some bigger ships before they run out of fuel - this does not make for a really exciting sci-fi story. And they had to give every character some sort of plotline, so you wind up with garbage like the casino planet that doesn't really add to the main story (it's like 20 minutes of nonsense so that Finn can fall in love with what's-her-name and sympathize with other people being oppressed). The best parts were the training with Luke and Rey, and they had to make Luke behave totally out of character for that part. The whole thing is a mess.

Watched SOLO this afternoon. Can't really disagree with any of this.
This is a snakeskin jacket. And for me it's a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom.
