Bland and uninteresting. Also irritating fan service and a way too epic final battle.
You know that’s strange because that’s exactly how I’d describe Solo, save for the “epic final battle” part. I loved Rogue One, but Solo is my least favorite because it’s a checklist of Han Solo getting things we know him for (and they still managed to leave out the vest, somehow) that ends up feeling soulless and forgettable, despite being a passion project of the screenwriters. The bland color palette (which RO is admittedly also guilty of) and bad lighting don’t help.
I will never understand how or why the copy-paste job that is TFA is so highly ranked.
I wonder if most of the people who liked TFA didn’t like TLJ and vice-versa. After all, everyone seems to agree about the narrative whiplash of the two being so radically different. And they’re not just different; they’re polar opposites. One’s derivative and predictable while the other goes out of its way to be unpredictable.
If you liked every movie but one and that one was still mostly okay, I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t at least like [Solo] at a minimum.
Well I also at least enjoyed every movie until now, but couldn’t enjoy Solo.
