This will be the first Star Wars movie I’m not buying. I thought it was reasonably entertaining, but forgettable when I saw it in the theatre. TLJ, the subsequent controversy, and Solo really made me skeptical about the franchise’s future. Star Wars isn’t special anymore, and the prospect of a never ending supply of films, strongly permeated by a sense of dejá vu isn’t very appealing to me. I can only view Solo as the first in a long line of mediocre, low stakes cash grabs thriving mostly on nostalgia and eye candy, and I’m not jumping on that bandwagon.
