    The good news for you with kids is that the lightsaber part is "hard to find". Its not obvious, because its supposed to feel like an underground alliance kind of thing.

    The droid part will be tough. LOTS of people had them.

    Wasn’t impressed with the Falcon ride. I was the engineer(last seat).You have to focus on pushing buttons which are either on your left or right side depending on which side of the cockpit you sit in. So You kinda miss out on what’s happening on the screen. Maybe my 2nd time will be better.

    I enjoyed the Galaxy Land as a whole though. Seeing the actual Millennium Falcon was amazing. Felt cool having a section of Disneyland solely dedicated to Star Wars. (Can’t wait for Marvels section,much smaller, at California Adventure).

    The other minor gripe I have is they only have R2 and Chewbacca characters for us older SW fans. At least that I noticed.

    Last Friday I was donating platelets because I am a hero who likes to save lives by sitting in a chair doing nothing but watching an iPad and I finally decided to check out Solo.

    I have about 10 minutes left to watch since the movie didn't take as long as it took me to donate platelets because of course, I am a hero who likes to help people with cancer and I do not have much of a desire to finish the movie.

    It is not good. At no point did I believe that guy was Han Solo, other than the fact they kept on calling him Han Solo. His performance was fine in the sense that I didn't think he was bad at acting. I do think the character is poorly written and they tried WAY too hard to make him likable instead of having him give a likable performance.

    IMO, the movie should have been space Payback set in the Star Wars universe where Solo isn't ever the "Good" guy, he is just not a complete piece of ****.

    The story was bad. That action was not super exciting. The twists were terrible. I just did not enjoy this movie. I know people like to blame the billion-dollar The Last Jedi for Solo's failures, however, that movie failed on its own. Even if someone were to like it, I can't imagine them liking it enough to see it multiple times and it isn't interesting enough to see it a second time.

    I do not feel upset. I feel mostly bored. Which IMO is worse than upset. I hate Rogue One, but at least, for the most part, I was entertained.

    *shrug*

    I felt that Solo was a fine, B- movie. It did what it needed to do, and left me wanting more.

    It left me wanting more Lando. If they made a Lando movie Donald Glover, I will be watching it first day. I thought his character was excellent.

    I would give the movie a C-. So bland. The movie is Vanilla Dairy Dessert.

    Solo sucked a bag. I knew it would suck as soon as I saw the casting, but even with low expectations, it sucked a bag. A big one. Best part of the movie was Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos...

    Gotten to the point with the franchise to where I either wait for Redbox or to catch them on tv sometime... Don't like Daisy's overdone mouth-breather acting and Adam Driver just isn't convincing as the emo-boy with Daddy issues baddie, which is weird cause he's a good actor and I like him in other stuff like Logan Lucky... just ****ty SW scripts and directing maybe.

    I love Kylo Ren. He is like if Ben Shapiro or any insel was the main villain of Star Wars.

    Actually, I'd like him more if he were more Shapiro or even Vader like... a bit more intellectual and withdrawn. More cunning and menacing and less screaming and raging...

    Personally, I don't find the prancing mad dog types who can't control their emotions particularly compelling to watch. When they introduced him and he flew into a rage and light sabered the computers, I was done with him and his stupid looking helmet.

    They are slowly evolving these space movies into spaghetti (spaceghetti?) westerns. The new one most certainly is. They should learn what made the old westerns that are still hailed as movie greats actually great and emulate them. In the westerns, Kylo Ren's stupid *** would be killed by now or something would have occurred to alter his persona. Till then he's just an emo-punk in black trying to impress those have already died in the movies. His character needs to evolve or he'll forever be 3rd violin no matter how much they try to feature him. Maybe they'll figure it out.

    LOL at Shapiro being intellectual, cunning, or menacing and not screaming and raging.

    You misread or misunderstood. I was referring to Vader.

    I'd prefer him to be more Klaus Kinski's "Wild" or Indio from "For a Few Dollars More". LVC and Clint were known for the acting portrayed thru their faces... Facial ticks, hand shakes, eye twitches, jaw clenches, etc... convey more to me than some brat throwing a temper tantrum and destroying his toys with a light saber. Just an instant turn off. The guy giving him the bad news was more than able to convey his nervousness and fear of reprisal as the messenger of bad news just with his mannerisms.

    Wish directors would get back to actually having guys act than over react. Have the fun of movies is when you leave you to interpret what's going on without forcing it upon you. That's another reason why Solo blowed dead goats. Ford was a better actor and his mannerisms were his own. Aldrich was just so obviously trying to mimic then. He just lacked the screen presence and character to do so.

    I Hope you are just considering the Original Trilogy than the prequels. The prequels had the worst acting directing I have ever seen.

    Nothing on the new trailer? Jesus I am psyched as **** for this movie.

    I love the idea of SW going all in with a massive space battle with modern tech in this trilogy. The Kylo/Rey dichotomy is intriguing, Rey being portrayed as being a bit darker is interesting, building up of the new rebellion, and the send off to Luke and Leia. Man, I am jazzed.

    And goodness the musical score. Star Wars scores are just so phenomenal.

    While I'm still excited for the movie, the trailer last night just didn't do much for me. I guess we'll see what we end up getting.

    I guess the thing that most intrigued me is the fact that the planet many of the scenes were on looked a lot like Kamino. And if that's the case, then that obviously leads to some very interesting questions as to why they're there.

    It doesn't seem so: https://io9.gizmodo.com/disneys-star-tours-just-told-us-the-name-of-the-rise-of-1839295533

    I thought the trailer did a pretty solid job of giving some generalized hype without revealing anything obviously huge imo. It wasn't my favorite trailer from this final trilogy, but it serves it's purpose. I do know some people are still down after TLJ, but I thought was fantastic, and I am very excited to see the conclusion here. From what JJ and everyone is saying, they worked overtime to try and tie up threads. That was kind of a big worry with JJ, as he likes to open doors that he doesn't always know how or when to close. This movie should be packed with goodness I hope.

    https://geektyrant.com/news/ewan-mc...i-wan-kenobi-series-and-confirms-some-details

    Despite the long series of rumors and debates regarding the project, apparently Ewan McGregor has known that he would be starring in the Obi Wan series for four years. This is extremely interesting both because he had to either lie or not comment on it during that whole time, and also because Disney+ wasn't part of the public conciousness back then. I wonder if he signed on to star in a feature film and the plays changed along the way.

    He says that the series will be six episodes, one hour long each. I'm really, really looking forward to it. Obi Wan is one of my favorite characters.

    just amazing that the theory that came out after chapter 7 is likely dead on about palpatine. guy seemingly nailed it.
    I'm looking forward to this movie.

    can't find the link right now. basically, after episode 7 - he looked at the lightsaber fighting style of Rey at the end of the movie and showed how it mirrored that of Emperor Palpatine in his battles with Mace Windu and Yoda. From that, he generated the theory that Rey is somehow descended from Palpatine, either by direct line or by cloning.
