Thought it was brilliant as well, a phew bits you could pick holes in. But really what more do you want from a 21rst century Star Wars film. Really think they have done a great job of telling Han’s Back story in 2 hours or so. If you liked Rogue 1 the chances are you will like this film.

So where do you rate the 9 Star Wars films now?! :lol:

A great question

Changes all the time, but as of now:

01: Empire Strikes Back
02: Star Wars:
03: Return of the Jedi
04: Solo
05: Rogue One
06: The Last Jedi
07: The Force Awakens
08: The Phantom Menace
09: Revenge of the Sith
10: Attack of the Clones

Holy shit- there are 10 Star Wars feature films!

How about you?

Jesus, yeah 10! I’ve lost count, amazing. :shock:

1) ANH
2) ESB
3) ROTS
4) ROTJ
5) Solo
6) R1
7) TFA
8) TLJ
9) TPM
10) AOTC

Solo could move into the top 3 or 4. That’s some marathon to watch them all in a row now.

I really enjoyed it I'm just out from watching it. I definitely be watching this again before I decide the rating. But at the moment it's up along with R1 and the originals for me now I think.

Ten of us went and ten of us thoroughly enjoyed it and 3 of us were not Star Wars fans.

Cazza's brief analysis was spot on regarding influences/references.

Oh and they did oh so well to keep that character under wraps.
Was a bigger achievement than the Vader reveal in ESB due to this day and age.

A total fun honest escapism jaunt!

Great standalone film. Thoroughly enjoyed.

As said, Rogue One fans will enjoy this film, builds the Han back story really well convincing characters that we all love from the OT . Great surprise in there as well :D

9/10 for me

If THAT was the best they could come up with, I'll just hand someone a tenner and ask them to smack me in the face a few times. I'd be more enjoyable and a more productive way to spend my money.

Bizarrely though, I am keen to know what you guys think of it. Without having the plot spoilt just in case I change my mind


I think you should give it a go. For me TLJ was a disaster I felt Star Wars was finished for me. But I did really enjoy Solo and I am glad I got to watch it on the big screen. Don't go in expecting to much just a bit of fun and action.

Hhmmmm. The problem is, if i go and it's as pish as the last turd that will be me done with SW for good. Well, the new stuff, obv the OT will always be the OT. I'm oscillating atm, sometimes I think I might go. Other times I think what's the point!?

Just tell yourself it’s part of your job, your a moderator on a Star Wars forum you have to see it!

Forget about TLJ, pretend the last Star Wars film that came out was Rogue 1.

Hmmm :roll:
Just go already!!
It's a film, you'll either enjoy it or you won't!
I really don't get some people's fear of a new SW film not being as good as they hope or to get the same feelings as when they watched the OT for the first time because you are always going to be disappointed.

I love some and like others.
I loved this.

It's more how much I hated the last one. I'm not sure I want to give Disney any more encourgaement/money after that. We'll see.

Oh and yeah, I take your point on them not being a good as the OT. I fully accept no film could ever be as good as them in our/my rose tinted eyes.
Saying that though, I enjoyed TFA although it was a rehash of a new hope and Rogue one was a good film. The prequels are abominations, I think most people on here have a low opinion of them. The problem is that last film was absymal AND a fucking shite film. The plot was more holes than plot. Huge chunks could and should have been cut, there is so much potential with the SW galaxy and so far given free reign George with the prequels and now Disney have royally buggered it up.
TFA was a rehash and Rogue one had only limited leeway as we knew the immediate story before it began and where it would end.
It seems the more leeway Directors/Writers have the more they fuck it up. There's quite a lot of leeway with Han's back story.....

Just got in from watching the Solo movie and thought it was brilliant, well made film, funny in places and full of twists and turns 8) Ron Howard did a great job :D
