    Weird but it's true. People are such sheep. I guess this is gonna be like Speed Racer in 10 years...

    Disclaimer: I didn't watch Solo because I don't do the theater anymore. Also I'm too old for this ****, but you all knew that.
    Solo was also harmed by SW 7 and 8 not living up to expectations in terms of quality of the stories.

    Well, "Speed Racer" was an overall bad movie. I mean, parts of it worked fairly well, but it was way loaded down by the parts that didn't. If the whole movie had been about the rally race, that coulda been fun.

    The biggest problem with "Solo" was that it wasn't AMAZING on every tiny count. And, as the post above says, "Last Jedi," especially, wasn't exactly a huge home run story-wise.

    That's just nuts. They need to be real careful about burnout.

    Especially if the movies themselves aren't good to great. Part of the reason the Marvel movies work is that, like many Pixar movies, the expectation of quality is there and the studio mostly delivers.

    The Star Wars franchise actually hasn't had that kind of high-level consistency recently. And while the recents are all steps up from the prequels, I am reminded of Eddie Murphy's saltine cracker bit in "Raw."

    I guess they are doubling down.

    Dunno. The thing with the Marvel Shared universe, aside from the obvious fact that it was meticulously planned, is that it consists of tons of characters, and decades worth of storylines that they can draw upon and riff off. Star Wars "main story" was pretty much told, in my opinion in the original trilogy. It's not to say that this is like The Terminator, which does a create a world, but was basically a specific story that was told in the first two movies and everything else has just gone on changing the story to fit more movies and milking it. Star Wars on the other hand, created a vast world in which a lot of different stories that don't involve the main characters from the first three could be told. The extended universe showed that, which is now not canon anymore, but still, that can serve as an illustration that it can be done.

    The thing is they don't need to do release these films so quickly like the Marvel films just because it's worked with that universe. They just need a longer gestation period to figure out a lot of things out. I mean a like Boba Fett. No, I really like Boba Fett, but do we really need a solo film for him and in the next few years? In order for all these movies to work they need to see how they are going to expand beyond the lets go back and do an Early Years Film of "Insert character from the first trilogy." Rogue One, which might be the best of the new films, was somewhat of a let's look behind Grand Moff Tarkin's story before A New Hope.

    Dunno, then again, a solo Salacious B. Crumb movie could be good.

    Still, not that I won't be interested to see what they come up with, but I am a total Star Wars Apologist, haha. The funny thing is not that I have defended The Phantom Menace is that I have done it while stone cold sober, lol.

    This "fan made" Last Jedi remake needs to stop. Star Wars fans are getting to the point where I don't want to be associated with them anymore. wtf people...
