    Love the train sequence but favorite is probably the meeting with Dryden when they discuss getting the raw coaxium from Kessel. Easily my favorite interaction of the whole movie.

    I was over the moon for the Kessel Run initially after watching it, and although I love its whiz bang kinetics, there's no doubt it's largely the latest incarnation of the asteroid field chase to a certain extent, even using some of the same music cues.

    My new favorite scene in the film is the Vandor conveyex heist. Nicely structured, cleanly choreographed, strong emotional beats, an explosive ending, and a resonant aftermath that sets up Han for the life he'll be living for the rest of his life.

    I love that too, and think it may be my favorite. Both very tense, and really funny. Hard to pull something like that off. I liken it to the firecracker scene in Boogie Nights, for those who’ve seen it...

    Definitely Han meeting Chewie.

    Chewie just happens to be my all time fave character and to see how this epic relationship started was just awesome. A saga defining moment for me!

    Since there is not a Solo complimentary discussion thread, I'll post it here.

    I love to see how the visual effects are made in this kind of movies.

    Solo really had some of the most exciting action scenes in all of SW. Howard gets it in a way JJ and Rian doesn't, their action doesn't work for me.

    That the VFX crew of Solo were inspired by The Slow Mo Guys is so awesome!

    I never would have thought that that explosion was practical! :eek: Amazing! Thanks for posting that.

    Rogue One and Solo, to me, seem light years ahead of the ST when it comes to action scenes (and a lot of other types of scenes too...).

    I love it when Lando says "I hate you" and Han replies "I know" in a way reminiscent of his exchange with Leia before being put into carbon freeze.

    I love everything about Lando in this.

    I know, I know... Lando's not a scene, he's a man...

    The Calrissian Chronicles, and the game between Beckett and Chewie are probably my favorite moments among many. They're two of the first thing I think of when I think of that movie. The others being Han saying his father used to build ships like the Falcon, and the moment Chewie sits next to Han in the co-pilot seat.

    I like the scene that shows Han unselfishly leave Chewie to fight on behalf of his fellow Wookiees. He clearly understands how important it is to him. Great character development that will continue into the OT.

    Got to be the heist, cinematographically it was above much of previous Star Wars - so much tension and just fun-loving action going on.

    Darth Maul cameo and all Dryden Vos scenes are special mentions.

    My favourite scene is when Han meets Chewie for the first time, honourable mentions must go to the scenes between Han and Lando especially the Sabbac scenes and I also liked the Darth Maul cameo but they are only a small selection of the scenes that I like

    I really enjoy the Vandor heist.

    Love the scene where Han Chewie and Tobias walk into the party on the First Light.

    The Falcon escaping the TIEs and the Maw.

    All the scenes on the Falcon.

    The walking into the party on Dryden’s ship is my favorite scene. Mostly due to the singer and her bossa nova alien partner in the floating jar.

    His whole body is in that jar, not just his head. Some Solo superfan you are...jeez.

    That said, I agree. Though he deserves a whole trilogy, not just a one-off.

    This for me... all of the best scenes in this movie take place on the Falcon, IMO.

    I enjoy a lot the sequence of Han flying in Falcon for the first time and Hans kill your mentor, showed the sad lesson that he learned in movie of not trusted in anyone, that created the Hans that we will see in A New Hope. The movie it's not bad, but I think that was lukewarm for a movie that Hans and Chew know each other for the first time, lacks of emotion, I think that it's bc of trouble production.
