I agree with that critic score assessment. And IW is at 84% so it holds up.

further counterpoint: Last Jedi audience scores were lower than Phantom Menace despite the fact that they remove all 1/2 star scores from the statistics, of which it got a shit ton of them.

Movie about sex with fish dudes wins awards last year, of course they'll set up that Ten Numb x Lando standalone romance movie. Gotta get that Oscar

FWIW, that Canadian ET reviewer who got famous for ripping TLJ to shreds liked this.

The overall sense I'm getting is that it's an above average heist movie containing Star Wars things...there's very little that's blatantly garbage, very little that's truly great. Maybe it'll be one of those movies that's good to have on in the background during a lazy Sunday.

Or, there are a zillion other movies that fit that description.

Stop giving these asshats your money so they maybe start to learn.

They aren't getting nearly the money they used to from me. I contributed one movie ticket to TLJ, which remains the only Star Wars movie I haven't bothered to watch multiple times. I haven't even bought the Blu Ray, and I own the fucking Phantom Menace on VHS, DVD and Blu Ray. Star Wars as I knew it has been over for 35 years.

And they aren't going to learn. It's porn at this point, and they know it. Go beat off to Chewie and Star Destroyers being filmed from new and exciting angles, feel bad about it for a minute, then move on with your life.

Inside ‘Solo’: A ‘Star Wars’ Story’s Bumpy Ride to the Big Screen

tl;dr: movie ended up costing $250m, Ron Howard reshot 85% of the movie, Lord & Miller wasted a lot of time, Omar was recast by Vision due to not being able to refilm his scenes

also I had no idea Khaleesi was 31, i thought she was older

Figure with $250m production budget and $300m marketing budget the movie has to make at least $300m domestic and $300m intl to break even, I don't think it'll really have a tough time with that.

It will make money regardless of reception.

Episode 9 will make money regardless of reception - after that, its finished it trilogy duty - if whatever comes of starwars after that finally starts to go bunk because of whatever reason, it will never place blame on the current SJWisms that are infecting everything - it will be placed on, oh the viewers and market are done now that the trinity trilogy is over. etc. etc.
