It is no mystery that Disney is not happy with its most recent film in the "Anthology Series", Solo: A Star Wars Story, but is the movie actually bad? Does it deserve the criticism or the hate? To be fair it did not receive nearly as much hate as The Last Jedi did after release with an Audience score of 46% (Rotten Tomatoes), although TLJ did receive a 91% from critics. Solo, respectively, also received lower audience scores compared to critics with critics giving it a 71% and audiences giving it a 64%. So what we see here is that critics loved TLJ, generally "liked" Solo and Audiences haven't been happy with either of them, but Solo did do better. Now what does all of this mean and what does that leave for the future of Star Wars?
I said I wasn’t going to give out any more money to this bankrupt Star Wars franchise. But, I had hope for this Star Wars story, and when my friend suggested Solo to escape the obtrusive July 4th heat, I jumped at the chance.
Hello! Are you a Star Wars fan? Maybe just a movie buff? Either way, you have come to the right place. I want to keep this intro short... so let's get to the point. This movie review is solely my personal opinion. Disney has not paid me in any way to wrote this review nor do I have any relation to the creation of the film Solo. Also, please feel free to disagree with my opinion.
Star Wars is one of the biggest franchises in history. Even if you've never watched it, you have to have heard of it, and I am proud to call myself a...wait, what are fans of Star Wars called? Wookiees? Warsians? Oh, I remember – whiners and traitors.
Spoilers but it's been like seven fucking months so how have you not seen spoilers?
On the internet, I have become known not only as an actress but as Once & Future Queen Cosplay. Oh I know, that makes me sound full of myself, but I chose that alias because I am a die-hard fan of the Arthurian legend, and up until recently, almost everyone I cosplayed as was either a queen or would one day be a queen. That is, until I decided to finally go after my dream of being an official member of Rebel Legion.
A long time ago in a galaxy not so far away Star Wars has made its epic comeback with its launch of The Force Awakens and most recently The Last Jedi.
My son Jarret loves Star Wars. Whenever there's a new movie, which we are now blessed as a society to have on a regular basis, I talk to him about Star Wars. Since I get Jarret on the weekends as per the divorce agreement and all big releases come out on Thursdays now, Jarret's mom Valerie gets to see Star Wars with Jarret the first time he sees the newest one. But that means I get to be the one Jarret talks to after he's seen the movie twice!
A long time ago in a galaxy really quite near, George Lucas gave us the first Star Wars, and thus caused all nerds everywhere to explode with B-movie glee as the rest of the world started to think their weird shit was actually cool.
Admittedly, I grew up on the "original three" Star Wars films.
When this Star Wars film was announced it was met with a collective ‘meh’ from the fans at large. Combine that with the very public difficulties in the making of the film, the final result is also a solid ‘meh': a film one can enjoy while watching, but will leave no lasting impression nor desire to watch again.
When Star WarsEpisode I: The Phantom Menace was announced, everyone became giddily excited at the prospect of a new adventure in the galaxy far, far away. However, when the movie released, fans were immensely disappointed at the lackluster acting, over the top drama, and of course, Jar-Jar Binks. Little did they know that such a display was to be the status quo for Star Wars for the next six years, as two more prequels came out that people were not very kind too. Naturally, people were disappointed that their beloved saga had been reduced to a melodramatic stage show in space. The fear that Star Wars would never recover would have surely been in people’s minds ten years later, as Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was announced. Yet, as we all know, the movie exceeded all expectations and gave the fans a glimpse at how Star Wars could live on and not let itself be defined by an era long past.
