Very different formula, and such a nice setup for iv.

Solo - I felt it was too contrived and all of these snippets carrying backwards from the original movies. Like we were only going to like it if it used the same stuff as older Han. Contrived and just playing off of the originals - especially IV. I didn't walk out detesting it like I did VII but there was too much that didn't correlate for me.
I am with you all!

R1 was a GREAT stand alone film.

SOLO - not good, even when propped up by the SW Franchise.
Sorry, but SOLO was as bad, maybe worse, than SWI,II,III.
Actually, it was worse than SWIII - at least in III the set-up for DV, at the end was interesting! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!

I think it's been the best of the new movies by far and recaptured the feel of the originals. We obviously have seen that there's different views about Star Wars.
I also didn't find them campy. Certainly the poorish acting of Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer were factors, but it was still a neat idea and fun set of films. And there was Harrison Ford.

And I just don't consider it a standalone film. It was the setup for iv so, to me, it was very much a prt of mainstream Star Wars, even if the characters were not.

Cheers.

I agree totally much darker. Totally different feel.

To me campy is badly done in a funny way. SW really had that. Definitely fun. Seeing the sequels made me realize how much Harrison Ford made the movies for me. Carrie Fisher as a girl was a role model in a way, but the acting was meh.

R1 was definitely important to the story. Not a standalone to me either. Just because I didn't love the style, doesn't mean I don't appreciate the story. I can say the same of the prequels too.

Good point. I'd say that Princess Leia was a strong role model for girls and young women in a time when it wasn't common at all. And Fisher pulled it off well enough to get the message across, even with uneven acting.

No apology necessary. Spot on comment. I should have checked before posting and done it correctly.

Cheers.

Eh I just edited mine as you were quoting me. I must have clicked the wrong spelling option myself too. But yes, Carrie pulled her strong role model off perfectly. Even when she was chained, she fought. Really an integral part of my childhood. It's why I forgive VIII more than some. It was herstory not history (intentional play on words)

We'll just have to agree to disagree on how well she pulled it off. The message was still good, even if the way she did ot was forced and less-than-believable in terms of the acting. But, yes, the message got out and inspired.

Cheers.

Meaning, the strength was there. As a kid I didn't care about acting as much. But she was believable as strong. You didn't see her as a meek person playing a strong person. Acting sucked in a lot, but the strength was believable to me. Her softer moments actually were not as well done. But this is from someone who grew up watching her. I was just over a year old when I saw the first movie (and yes, I remembered seeing it as a kid a few years later again, though I do not now). So keep that in mind....

I understand the "link" to ep.IV, and I was trying to say that it was a good enough movie on its own merit, that I would have enjoyed it even if I had not seen I through IV
