Well I know I don’t have to go see it, I have yet to see Solo and honestly I don’t think I will for a very long time. I’m just saying it would be nice if there was a little more variety. But at the moment, I think the production schedules are just too small. I think we can all agree that Rouge One needed a little time in the oven with character development and TLJ could have used some time as well (I’m not going to get into TLJ because I don’t want to open that can of worms today).

I just think that once every couple years at least would not only give them more breathing room, but it might tighten up the scripts. You know what I mean? Not only that, but it would give the community time to get hype built up. It feels like the hype machine can’t catch up with how fast they’re putting these movies out, when it should be the other way around. Now admittedly I hate hype culture and I do my damnedest to stay away from it, but let’s be honest, TFA and RO had a lot of hype and it was really hard not to get excited for those films.

It’s not even a critique of the films themselves. I can take a sub-par Star Wars movie or five (all the s**t I talk about RO and TFA is nitpicking for the sake of nitpicking, I actually dig those flicks). I’ve been cool with that since The Caravan of Courage. Sorry for the wall of text, I ramble when I have a couple drinks after work 😃
