I really enjoyed the movie but thought Maul igniting the lightsaber was kind of stupid  almost like they wanted to make sure knew it was him.

I thought the same. The whole Maul scene was the only part I can say I actually did not like. It felt a bit ham-fisted - like a scene that was shoe-horned in by some  studio executive wanting to tick off a box or something.

Yeah, that's how it felt like.  I didn't mind Maul too much as I watched the cartoons and he was a big part of it.  I just found it stupid that he had to force grab his lightsaber and turn it on for no apparent reason other than to make sure the audiences knew it was Maul.

Just came back from watching Solo......didn't like this movie at all...if I had purchased 5POA Solo toys, I would be returning them all right now.

No more stand alone character movies!!

I have nothing more to say at this time....sorry to those that enjoyed the film, but I was very disappointed.

No need to apologize for not liking it  everyone's entitled to their opinion. I enjoyed it but my expectations were very low.  However I loved Lando. Found the droid annoying but think Han was better than expected.

On track to be the first SW movie to lose money...

I think when all is said and done, it will still make money (Blu-ray, digital copies, merchandise, etc.).

Regardless, the point is a good one - who would have guessed this after Episode 7 and Rogue One killed the Box Office? I guess Episode 8 really turned people off.

Well, I guess someone had to hate it. Sorry it had to be you, Ian  :sad0064:

I was just talking to someone about that. 

My opinion is that, had TLJ been universally loved by the fans - Solo would have done so much better (at the box office).  Unfortunately, most fans agree that TLJ is one of the biggest let downs.  It was supposed to be Luke's time to shine, but he didn't.  And thus creating the fatigue effect that the hard core and non hard core fans have right now.

From what I've seen on facebook and the conversations I've had, everyone for the most part has enjoyed Solo.  But again, I think that TLJ turned a lot of casuals off.

Now that TLJ has had time to stew on my mind, It really hasn't got any better.  There are three parts that I found awesome; Yoda, the Kylo/Rey vs Guards, & the brief Kylo vs Luke.  The Canto Bight sequence though, is still the worst sequence in Star Wars film.

I still hate how the story was so forced in TLJ. I really hated the premise that this whole thing could have been avoided if Holdo just told Poe the plan. And yeah, I hated the Canto Bight scenes.

I think the 1.5 year wait before EpIX will be enough time to let everyone get the venom out of their system & be ready for the next outing. Solo was disadvantaged tremendously by them not delaying the release until Christmas.

I think Disney certainly learned their lesson.  TLJ was successful at the box office and it was universally praised by the critics so I think that's why they kept the date, taking the chance that fans won't hate TLJ and ride the wave into Solo.  Now we know that Star Wars isn't like Marvel.  Fans need more time.

Just out of interest - has anyone gone to see it twice ?

Our house has not.  But everyone in the family has seen it.  Well sort of, my wife feel asleep half way through so she still hasn't seen it all - she missed about 1 hour of the movie.

I do not plan to go again, but I do plan on buying it.

I went by myself already, and will be taking the family this weekend. That has been my usual practice since Ep7.

However, I skipped taking the family to Ep8, and I really have no desire to ever see that movie again.

I have not bought either Ep7 or Ep8 on bluray, but I did buy Rogue One and plan to buy Solo eventually as well.

I've seen it twice now & may see it a third time if timing permits.

I've seen it twice. I would go a third time, but movies are expensive. Next viewing will be Blu-Ray.
