    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    Oh there’s the spoiler thread I’ve been looking for. Oh god. This was... not good. The trailer looked so promising and yet the movie itself turned out to be mediocre, at best. It was basically 60% meh, 30% omfg why and 10% aww that’s adorable. It managed to create tension for a full 3 minutes when they were trying to escape the gravity pit. The other 133 minutes were either predictable or boring or plainly bad or predictable AND plainly bad. I checked my phone for the time twice. Young Han, though the actor did a passable job grasping the cockiness of Harrison Ford, was out of character way too often and there was no arch or turning point that would direct his character development toward the Solo we know and love. Chewie was sweet, Lando was kinda meh, Rio was a pleasant and disappointingly short lived pop of color on the character palette, we essentially learned nothing about QiRa and Vos was a feeble joke for a villain. The only enjoyable character in terms of both acting and writing was Woody Harrelson. If I had to pick one of the many lowest points, it would probably be when the smuggler competition took off his Sauron mask to reveal a doe-eyed, victimized teenager who is only fighting for the greater good. An honorable mention is when Han freaking Solo trying to convince someone to give away a load of cash they risked their necks for, because... aforementioned teenager who had previously almost got them killed and who they had know for 5 minutes had such a touching story and good cause? The most un-Solo-like thing I could ever imagine. The high point of the movie was definitely when that ridiculous droid was finally sliced in half. Ugh god. And I’m still allergic to franchise blockbusters trying to convey messages about social agendas. Especially if they attempt to jam pack five of those into one star wars movie, which I watch - shocker- for its universe, characters, storyline and action scenes, rather than a lecture about social issues. If a cause is important to you and you want to incorporate it into your work as an artist, 100% do so. Just be an artist. Embed it into the context, be subtle and don’t shove it down my throat, so it might even work and won’t immediately trigger my reverse psychology. I did enjoy Rio, Chewie and Han’s friendship, Emilia Clarke’s hairstyles, the references to previous Star Wars movies (minus the aged Darth Maul - aren’t there imperial botox salons anyway?), Woody Harrelson and... the Corelia space airport scene... and... yeah. -just my humble opinion that nobody needs to agree with. I just needed to let out the disappointment rage.

    All things Star Wars

    HOW could this crap I just watched rank 5th of all Star Wars movies? Rouge One and ALL the prequels were all better. In my opinion. Oh god, what a waste of potential... and the cinema menu options didn’t even include an emilia figurine cup... what am I gonna put next to the aquaman figurine cup when that comes out? Solo was... 60% meh, 10% aww that’s so adorable and 30% oh-god-no-why. It managed to create tension for a full 3 minutes. For the remaining 132 minutes I remained completely unmoved and checked my phone three times for the time.

    Nah, never. If ancient trains, noisy and stinky guesthouse rooms and four hours of sleep can’t break me, cxg references won’t either. Actually, no. Her baby can’t be a dog or a John Lenon or a laptop when she grows up, no matter how much she may want it. At least not yet. Who knows where modern technology and medicine may take us in 18 years.

    I cooked. It was okay. This olive oil is the worst quality oil I have ever cooked with though. Replacing it as soon as a grocery store opens...
