Re: The C3G Cave - Hangout

I honestly wasn't captured by the advertising either, so I doubt I would've seen it in the theaters. Given when it came out, I think Star Wars fatigue might've been a factor as well.

And I loved episode 8!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: The C3G Cave - Hangout

I thought 8 was fantastic in ways. I love subverting expectations (Read: Invincible), so it was a wild ride the whole way through. There were a few strange decisions which bogged it down, but the actual plot was great.

Unlike 7 which they just used an Episode 4 script.

Re: The C3G Cave - Hangout

I think Solo was definitely hit more by backlash from Episode 8 than any major failing of its own. Some of which was unfair like making BS reviews and such, but I canít blame people for not wanting to see more Star Wars after the Last Jedi. I absolutely hated that movie myself, but Iíve always considered the movies the worst part of Star Wars anyway, so it didnít color my perceptions of Solo (Iím definitely avoiding Episode 9 like the plague though, couldnít care less about what happens to the sequel trilogy squad).

I though Solo was decent, not a perfect movie by any stretch but it was enjoyable enough to watch. The only thing I really didnít care for was starting out with that whole other team that then died 20 minutes later since that was just kinda time wasted that could have been used to develop characters that werenít dead men walking.

Re: The C3G Cave - Hangout

I should also say that I'm in no rush whatsoever to see Solo again. It was done well, but is wasn't anything amazing. Rogue One definitely outdoes it, but as a fun Star Wars adventure that's not important to the plot, and not as weighty as Rogue One, it did a great job.

Re: The C3G Cave - Hangout

I think the advertisements struck me as really glibly self-referential and over eager for fan service. Probably the main reason I haven't watched Solo yet.

Yep. Not nearly as bad in the film, but we DO see the origin for all sort of stuff like his gun, dice, hyperdrive computer, etc.... Not stuff I EVER cared to see the origin of.

+1

Solo is an OK movie, far from the worst in the Star Wars saga, but also far from the best. I waited until it came out on video to see it, mostly because of how much I disliked Episode VIII. Hopeful for Episode IX.

Re: The C3G Cave - Hangout

I also read a lot of Legends (I liked the overall lore that was built ... there were some terrible books too tho--Crystal Star anyone?)... and have been reading a number of the new canon books and comics and I have enjoyed some of them (I've really enjoyed most of what I read in the first couple volumes worth of Dr. Aphra) but ...

Star Wars: TLJ ... hmm ... I have distanced my interest in Star Wars and definitely do not want to go back to lengthy discussions about it but I'll just say I found the film predictable. Subversions can be deconstructed once one identifies the thematic message ... additionally, I can't watch the Praetorian fight scene and take it seriously.

Solo was okay, I think. The cinematography wasn't composed to my taste; was like they turned on a color filter and filled the whole frame with it (passable for low budget material but not for a big-budget feature). Granted, production issues probably played a role in this. But it was still okay ... the real question I have is "Why did Solo tank in the box office?" The answer to that question might determine the future of Star Wars and journalists, Lucasfilm, casual fans, and extreme fans all have a varied interpretation for answering that question.
