They should re-screen the prequels a month before they release it.

I have no desire to watch this. This guy is NOT Han Solo, Harrison Ford is. People say "Oh, it's OK, because this is YOUNG Han Solo." Ummmm this guy is 28 and Harrison Ford was 33 in "A New Hope", so they are basically the same age. What's next, them recasting Luke and Leia too and having the three of them jetting around the universe together as the fake classic threesome?  Make new stories, no need to trample all over Harrison Ford's legacy as Han. Weak!

Pretty clear and obvious at this point that Star Wars was never good, the only reason it was popular is because it came out before Baby Geniuses 2 revolutionized the artform.

If Disney has any guts, then they'll basically do Space Jam, but for Star Wars.  Maybe have Bugs Bunny and Jar Jar join up to defeat Darth Vader.  Maybe even have the U.S.S. Enterprise show up, but only to get destroyed by the superior technology of the Star Wars universe.

I mean, honestly, Disney can do whatever the hell they want, as long as Luke Skywalker kills Captain Kirk.  Those Star Trek assholes need to know that they're subhuman garbage.  Bazinga.

This. Best star wars movie to date

Want to make a good Han solo movie?

Cast Harrison Ford and spend your digital Carrie fisher money on making him look younger

Or make an animated series for steaming ala Clone Wars and Rebels. Then you CAN use Ford.

I'm probably the biggest Star Wars mark on this site and I don't really care about this film. Nobody wants to see someone else playing Han Solo. Now Ewan McGregor, he was the best actor in the prequels, (not a high bar but Ian McDiarmid was good too) an Obi Wan movie would be cool but I don't see a huge demand for this.

Agreed. There's no sense in a "young Han Solo" movie because we saw young Han Solo in Ep 4. He looked strikingly like Harrison Ford circa 1977. This guy looks nothing like that.

I suppose if it's revealed to be an in-universe "based on a true story" film of the legendary freedom fighter's life, I could get on board, but playing it straight just doesn't work for me.

It may be petty, but I really can't help but feel schadenfreude at the idea that not liking a Star Wars movie is making grown men cry.

Should have named the movie "Falcon" because it's more of a draw than Han Solo at this point.

For what it's worth, I thought Young Indiana Jones was awesome, and I *thought* most Farkers did, too.

I love how they say that Alden Ehrenreich can't act. NEITHER CAN HARRISON FORD.

This is exactly why the movie was always doomed. Everyone is going to compare Alden Who? to Harrison Ford and obviously nobody is going to have nice things to say.

Young Indy had some truly great episodes and was ahead of its time, IMO.  The WWI courier episode was fantastic.  Can you stream the show anywhere?

Amazon Prime.
I'm sure it will wind up on Disney's streaming service, whenever that starts up.

I'm sorta iffy about this film too. Doesn't seem needed at all. But remember, we were all convinced Ant Man was going to be a steaming pile because of tje director changes and re-shoots.

When Disney bought Star Wars, I said that their endgame was to eventually reboot the Original Trilogy but that they had to make 2-3 "decent" SW movies before everyone got on board with Disney knowing how to treat and handle the material.

Looks like they figured "Ep 7, Rogue 1 and Ep 8 are good, and making money. Proceed with the Master Plan."

Their overconfidence will be their undoing.
 
2017-12-27 10:10:33 AM  
How the hell does someone get casted for s big role, who can not act?  Yeah, I know, casting couches.  Either young Han Solo was on one, or his agent had blackmail information on a big time producer using one.

They forgot to kill everyone just before end credits

Do a one shot on the main storyline where rebels act like rebels with good acting and a good script

Why not do rogue 2 with the story of how the Bothan spies found out about the second death star? Many Bothans died to get that information :)

But as you know Disney could take an dump in a box, label it star wars and still make a billion dollars
 
2017-12-27 10:13:08 AM  
The sad thing is it will make a billion dollars no matter how bad it is.

What gets me about this one is that they somehow managed to fark up Chewbacca's dialogue.

When we get a new star wars every year, it's not only kills the excitement of a new movie, but also promises to fark with canon and deliver less quality movies.

//all the characters where two dimensional and boring.

2017-12-27 10:16:12 AM  
If it looks like a flop, there is one sure fired way to save it...


Add William Shatner to the cast

Maybe some marketing genius decided that the bad reaction many people are having to Last Jedi is due to their expectations being too high....so they're going to try and make people have low expectations for this one so they'll be happy with it.

This was going on before TLJ was even finished.

No more prequels. No more Death Stars (and I include that stupid battering ram thing from the new movie in that statement).

I say this as a big Star Wars fan. Just no! The family will have to drag me there if they want to see this one in the theatre.

I would definitely say overrated. It wasn't a very good movie and am kind of boggled at the love for it. Lessons From the Screenplay talked about one of the films major flaws

What I find difficult is that in ANH Solo was supposed to be a dirtbag smuggler who only cared about money and his own neck. His arc through the original trilogy is him becoming a hero and leader. The premise of this movie is most likely going to be centered on him being likeable and I read somewhere a freedom fighter. 2 things that he didn't really express when wet first met him.

Just make the kid get captured by jabba towards the end of the movie, for screwing up some HUGE shipment.  And as the kid is dying, Jabba asks 'who will take his smuggling shipments?' have various people step forward "I am han solo" over and over until a CGI Ford steps into frame.

If it's as bad as it's rumored to be, toss it in the shiat can and forget about it.  No good can come from releasing it.  Who am I kidding they'll probably still triple their production cost at least.
 
2017-12-27 10:31:57 AM  
 And expanding on another farkers idea, a 4 rooms/pulp fiction style movie based around the history of the Millennium Falcon could be awesome.
 
2017-12-27 10:31:59 AM  
I'm gonna go see it, probably more than once. However, having said that, I seriously doubt this douche-canoe

is capable of capturing the original film's Ford magic. Especially after Harrison spent decades crapping all over it.

This was my initial reaction when the movie was first announced. We've already seen young Han Solo, you can't just throw someone else in and expect people to overlook the fact that it isn't him.
 
2017-12-27 10:38:01 AM  
I didn't much care for Harrison Ford's performance as Han Solo in The Force Awakens.  It felt like Harrison Ford cameo and not really playing Han Solo.  Besides wearing the same clothes he wears for decades, he didn't feel like the roguish good natured knave from the original trilogy.  They wrote away the charm of Han and left us with old Harrison Ford dressed like Han.

Same for the last Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. Harrison Ford with a hat chewing scenery and popping out of refrigerators isn't the same as Indiana Jones charming us.
