    I had such low expectations for this, after how much I absolutely hated The Last Jedi. This was so, so much better than I thought it would be. There was only 1-2 cringy lines, but I thought the guy who played Han actually did a good job. He and Emilia Clarke actually did a fantastic job creating a believable love interest.

    Also, the twist toward the end was a better 10 seconds of Star Wars than all of TLJ combined. Fuck yeah, stoked for more of these movies again...

    There were some definite plot problems, but overall an enjoyable movie. Thanks Ron Howard, you saved Star Wars from being a steaming pile.

    Also, pretty obvious who the villain will be for the Obi-Wan movie now.

    Rebels pretty much eliminated him as a villain for the Obiwan movie unfortunately

    No pun intended

    I also haven't seen Solo, but yeah, how would that work after Rebels? Rebels was clearly their first meeting since TCW.

    It wouldn't. A plot where he sends bounty hunters to go find Obiwan wouldn't even make sense.

    Star Wars Anthology 2: Solo (May 25, 2018)

    Saw it this morning, very solid film. The only thing that made me cringe a bit was at the end with

    Maul grabbing his lightsaber and igniting it, felt a bit over dramatic

    All they have to do is recreate that scene at the end. He is very obviously going to be the villain of the movie. You don't introduce a character like that, especially one confusing to the average audience member, and not follow-up. Even if he is in the Boba Fett movie, I have a feeling all 3 of them will tie together.

    I think you're right that he should be the ONLY villain in the Obiwan movie, but it seems weird that they would have to re-create that scene from Rebels

    It would have made more sense (especially to the average viewer) to have the big baddie be

    It's funny how many people were like "nope" to this movie and then ended up liking it.

    That would have been incredibly lame. The audience would have just been like "yeah...ok". They knocked it out of the park with their choice.

    I'm a bit surprised at the good reviews in here considering the 54% audience score on RT. Might actually be a good sign

    It's sad that a lot of people seem to like it, and the box office is absolutely terrible. I guess those folks boycotting actually got their way for once, lol.

    Also, it's funny how Disney was seemingly lying about how many tickets it sold before hand, saying it was beating Black Panther in pre-sells, yet here we are, expecting a 105-115mil take. RIP. I'll probably go see it next week myself.

    Generally for stuff like this, the audience score would closely relate what we all think vs the RT score would be something you just used as a barometer, but here.. it's so weird. All those folks who hated TLJ and swore off Solo are probably flooding those scores. Goes to show you shouldn't trust that shit.

    It was pretty obvious the movie wasn't going to do monetarily well because:

    1. TLJ was trash
    2. The trailer was much worse than the actual movie
    3. It came out right after Infinity War and Deadpool - casual movie-goers have spent their money already

    And everyone should already know not to bother with RT...

    More like 2 and 3. People being unhappy with TLJ isn't going to stop Star Wars from making money.

    This movie just didn't look good. And it's coming out at a bad time.

    I haven’t gone because I don’t give a shit about Solo, but I’m not the audience for these anthology movies so maybe that’s it?

    You are certainly underestimating how much of a damper TLJ put on the franchise, for the time being. Pretty much every one of my co-workers said they weren't going to see it until its on Blu-ray because "the last one wasn't any good".
