    It's this kind of bilge that makes me fear for what Disney are going to do to the Indiana Jones franchise. Although to be fair Spielberg and Lucas absolutely trashed the series with that last travesty.
    I dunno, they're only films but we're such a huge part of my youth. I was brought up on Indy and Han Solo and they're whoring them for the Disney Dollar.
    I still think Harrison Ford looks like he's in some kind of SNL sketch in The Force Awakens, in some kind of spoof. The film had its moments but in all honesty they only decent thing they have done with the rebooted franchise has been R1, which was just a great film.
    I haven't even bothered with the las Jedi, from what I've heard it's awful.
    I hated the prequals. But I loved The force awakens and only watched the last Jedi on Sunday afternoon. That with Albion beating West Ham on Saturday, made a perfect weekend.

    I was ten when A new hope came out. To me, at that age, it was a perfect film. Now i can see its flaws but even so i still love it. I think if you watch the newer ones with that kind of spirit in mind, then it's easier to enjoy and even appreciate the reboot for what it is.
    If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      You're likely right. I do think the reboot has a great look and feels much more like the Star Wars universe than theprequels but I just feel they are a bit lazy.
      Nearly.

      I genuinely thought this was happening!
      The film is - the trailer is (very well) fan made.

      Only two ways that film could go. Utter, utter bag of dripping yellow dogshit or an absolute triumph. I hope it's the latter. It will probably be the former.
      surely yellow dog shit is normally on the dry side so highly unlikely to drip...

      If it's similar in style to Rogue One then it will be a great film. I'm a huge Star Wars fan anyway so I'll enjoy it regardless.
      Rogue One fitted in with the sw storyline which is the main reason it worked. Solo doesn’t really. Doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be entertaining though

      Rogue one was a masterpiece, hoping this doesn't go the other way.

      Looks good to me, has the feel of 'Rogue One' to it, only real worry for me is the character of Han himself, hopefully a bit more depth than just a few wisecracks.

      I'd agree with this generally ('Rogue One' is my favourite film of the franchise in fact,) but 'The Last Jedi' was just a massive disappointment along the same line as 'The Phantom Menace'. It just feels like a Muppet production of Star Wars that somebody forgot to put the puppets in and I can see why Mark Hamill was talking it down a bit as Luke is just completely out of character all the way through. It's not that it's overall a terrible film much more that it's just such a huge let-down imo.

      Rogue One was a breath of fresh air because there was a genuine story arc, a beginning, middle and end. Many films these days seem to spend a majority of the time angling for spin-offs in case that character is a hit with the audience. Given the ending this wasn't as plausible.

      The film you end up paying for and spending at least 2 hours watching often feels like a test-screening to see which storyline or character might get their own film. There's very little "you will only see these characters here and many will die so no chance of a sequel" films. Possibly because of the inherent fear of missing out on a franchise run.

      I got the sense that Rogue One wasn't subject to this as much. They were free to make a film and tell a complete story.

      Solo has undergone re-filming and has been written of by Disney. There is already a trailer for Kenobi out and thats not due out till next year. I am hearing from fan groups that the actor playing solo is seriously miscast.

      Got Trainwreck written over it
