    It’s pretty, sad, embarrassing, immature and stupid that people let one film ruin their whole view of a franchise. Like grow up. They’re just movies. Also, people are way harder to please nowadays than they used to be.

    I believe there is a lot of potential in anthology films set in between episodes. Instead of The Imperial Era (Ep. 3-4) focus on other eras like between Episodes 1-2 and Episodes 6-7. There are a lot of stories that can be told there. If Lucasfilm stops relying on the essence of the Original Trilogy and not follow the MCU which is making a movie every year, then it might be bettered for Star Wars but that’s if Episode 9 can win the fans over first.

    Not that I love Kathleen Kennedy, but why would they fire her over one movie? Every other movie has made an unbelievable amount of money.

    Diversity? Are you kidding me? The past 4 movies have been so diverse, it’s almost been jarring.

  • Rodimusbill 13 / 06 / 2018 Reply

    NO diversity?  Huh?  That's all there is in the new stuff…females and minorities!  Name one new white guy?  None…you have white females, minority females, black males, Hispanic males, etc.  Don't push it just put out good movies with everyone included

    This guy in white i dont know him but he his clearly paid to said those thing. And btw i did not watch SwSolo because of Infinity war and deadpool they never let me feel like i was the reason why those movie do not make great on grossing

    Why do we need LGBTQ in Star Wars. There shouldn't be any sexuality in Star Wars. Go do a pride march or sth. It's 2018, nobody cares about your sexuality, stop ruining movies.

    Crimson Dawn a star wars story should be the maul movie

  • theWOUSTER 17 / 06 / 2018 Reply

    Kristian seems to be the only genuine voice regarding all the shitty new SW movies. He seems to be falling out of love with SW, which is totally relatable

    What is next for star wars… hopefully some good stories and characters…

    What is next for this "council" most likely endless attacks on state are fans blaming them for Disney's failures and then singling out channels and fans as apparent ring leaders of this newly Disney ordained hate group of "toxic" fans.

    But the collider shills will do daddy Disney's bidding without a second thought.

    What's next after solo? Nothing hopefully. A funeral. An after party. It's over.

  • Rebecca Smith 24 / 06 / 2018 Reply

    I really enjoyed Solo. I do think they should have waited until December to release Solo. It's become the time when we're now used to Star Wars films being released vs. the May release, at least for me. It would have given more time for marketing and to get past people's issues, whatever they are, with TLJ, and with the early production/filming issues with the movie. And it is supposed to be a smaller movie vs. the trilogy movies; but it definitely should have been released in December.

    The Last Jedi was so sick. Solo was amazing. But I also watched Clone Wars and Rebels. Does that make this experience better for me?

  • PoPeople21 27 / 06 / 2018 Reply

    How could this video be this long?
    Simply put the people in charge are making their own shit Star Wars movies, so no one wants to see their Star Wars. Make a good Star Wars movie and they will come.

  • Derek Barnes 27 / 06 / 2018 Reply

    Good or bad Star Wars I-VIII and Rogue One ALL had epic moments that had to be seen on the big screen. Solo didn't have any moments that match up. It was epic meh and the first SW movie that I didn't see multiple times in the theater.

  • shaneomacfan3 29 / 06 / 2018 Reply

    I went to see Solo on Tuesday with my mom (she got me into Star Wars when I was a kid) We both enjoyed it. If I was giving it a score, I'd give it a 7 out of 10. I thought everyone was pretty good as their characters, but Donald Glover stole the show in every scene he was in as Lando.

    What's next? a U haul to remove the stinking carcass…

  • Drew Skull 08 / 07 / 2018 Reply

    Budget notwithstanding… It is a smaller movie and for all it's flaws, they did damage control. People can nitpick all they want. Let's see them do better. Box Office Fatigue is more likely than anything. Star Wars is not the MCU or even the DCEU. You can't go to the well once or twice a year and not expect diminishing returns. The Saga films should be gapped every 2 1/2 years at the least. More like every 3. Then they should sprinkle in a stand alone in between those. Just IMO… Haters gone Hate, hate, hate… no matter what…
