Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

But the Darth Maul inclusion is just so stupid. It really is. Now this is all coming back to me. Why in the world did they do that other than someone in the development said hey that’s a cool idea. (Which is what happened, but IIRC it was Kasdan’s son with the idea.)
You know there is Prince Xizor and Black Sun and so much material to mine there…aaand you just picked Darth Maul 'cause everyone always thinks he looked cool.

If the cameo had been Xizor, I’d have watched the movie.
Maybe.

Your thoughts on the Episode IX title - <strong>'The Rise Of Skywalker'</strong> - a NON-SPOILER thread
Time

I don’t think any of the titles are good movie titles, but most are fine chapter titles.
As for ranking, I’ll go:

  1. The Empire Strikes Back
  2. umm… Rogue One? Nah. I dunno…
  3. something…
  4. something…
  5. pfftt…
    & then Solo a Star WarS Story is the worst one.

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion <em>NON SPOILER THREAD</em>
Time

I find it funny how many people bash TLJ for having so many women in prominent roles,

I don’t think it’s “many”. It’s a loud few who’s stupid messages are parroted by the outcries of the people they upset, which only makes their voices louder.

when if anything, I felt they were under utilized. It felt like almost none of them had an arc of their own, instead serving as supports for the arcs of the men.

I’ve read this compliant much more than the other, though I think people tend to lump in with the other complaint.
I find that interesting.

  1. Attack of the Clones… this is everything that Star Wars represents.

Wha…

^ I actually thought “fair enough” in the ranking and comments on the prequels

No way that’s “fair”. 😄

Creating the Blockade Runner engine look for Rogue One…

’We had a lot of fun talking about the rotating dish atop the Tantive IV. Look carefully at it in the original Star Wars (1977)–in shot 1, it’s not visible. In shot 2, it’s rotating counter clockwise. In shot 3, it’s rotating clockwise! For Rogue One, we animated the dish counterclockwise.'
 

Maybe something to fix? I dunno how obvious it is in the film.
I certainly never noticed, and this is the first I’ve heard of it, but it seems like a good Revisited fix opportunity.
