OMG, that film was the most average crappy film I have seen in a while.

The whole point of Han Solo in the original film was that he was morally ambiguous until redeeming himself. Now we find out he was gay to begin with :roll:

The guy who played him was awful as well. When the best character and parts of a film are a feminist robot, you know you're in trouble.

Such a pity. Disney another one down the porcelain telephone...

I saw it today with the family. It was enjoyable but not great. I did like how they wrote around how he got the millenium falcon as well as the kessel run. It however was poor... I agree the Droid was great :) Emilia was soo one-dimentional almost trying to be the character from GoT but at the end of the day she is a slave and under the thumb of Maul.

I am sort of please they are linking back in with CloneWars cartoons where Maul is alive, he was after all the best character from the original 3 and the CloneWars series did well in filling his character out.

Its such a shame... Disney has such a large volume of product at the fingertips BUT are fucking starwars up soo badly. Thank god Marvel have not been assimilated by the Disney corporate media machine and are at least holding their own... but for how much longer? I fear what will happen to Marvel-based films once stage4 is complete... Disney squeeze every last rehash out of things (look at pirates of the Caribbean)

Okay. So Han was gay as in, "what a dork, he's so gay," or do you mean, "there goes Han Solo who likes one cock in his ass as he sucks off two more," gay?

The dork as in "I have to go back and save my girlfriend after 3 years and she knows what a really good person I am inside". Eurgh.

Lando and his ironic SJW robot were good. The robot was basically taking the piss of SJWs :lol: Phoebe Waller-Bridge is awesome anyway

don't forget he is a pussy...
Dropping cargo, "doing the right thing". He is meant to be the best smuggler in the galaxy and thus looking after himself.

Yeah, they basically took everything he was in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and fucked it up. His 'thing' was an nasty anti-hero who came good in the end. Solo has ruined all the continuity of that.

The actor was crap as well. He's meant to be smooth and full of himself, not vulnerable and a pussy.

This thread summarizes the impressions I got from the official trailer. Well done, disney. First star wars movie I will not bother with in theater, possibly not at all.

I'm planning on taking my kids on the weekend, I hold little hope but have heard mixed reviews and it deemed passable by some so maybe I won't be utterly devastated. I will still never forgive Disney for shit canning the EU.

Do you guys not watch trailers before spending money watching it?

The trailer looked appalling. The lead actor shit.

I have refused to subject myself to the trailer, let alone lay 50 bucks to watch the stupid thing.

I heard notageek say he thought it was going to be great, so I didn't even bother. Or was it pjp. Might have been pjp.

Nope. I've pretty consistently said everything from Disney has looked like garbage, and I've yet to be proven wrong. I wanted the first of the SjW series to be good, but it wasn't. I think most have sunk too much into the belief that SjW isn't crap that they don't know how to admit it.

It's good that a male lead is vulnerable and indeed a pussy, important that Hollywood now shows women in positions of strength.

Why are you against empowerment of women ?

He's confused. He doesn't know what he's for or against, or why.

Personally I love the direction Disney has taken with Star Wars.
Not because I think the movies are good, no. But a good friend of mine is (was) an absolute die-hard SW fan who even read all the books about Darth Bob and the history of whatchamacallit - and hearing him rant about how shit SW has become and how the fucked up this and that particular aspect of the lore is like 10/10 entertainment value. Presonally I haven't watched anything since Ep. III and I certainly won't go out of my way to change that.

Also have they addressed the fact that Solo doesn't look like Solo ?

I assume he's due to have some force induced plastic surgery later.

(I mean it's obvious that Chewbacca is played by the same actor from the original films)

So, I'm still not clear on Solo's gaiety. Gay how? Which do you mean: gay like a happy dance, gay like ATM fees, gay like bicycle helmets, gay like a social justice warrior, or "somebody wipe off my chin because my hands are both full of balls and cock" gay like Steven Fry.
