    I loved Lady Proxima's line after that: "It's a rock. And you just made a clicking sound with your mouth."

    When Han shoot first I was impressed they had the courage to do that after so many controversies about the changes in ANH.

    Kasdan really knows Han best than anyone else. Han is his boy, he knows how to write a good Han Solo.

    Agreed. Thought it looked great, Han and Chewie flying together for the first time, and I loved the squid/Kraken monster.

    It would honestly be easier to say what I didn't like [face_laugh]. Honestly, I didn't care for how Han got the name, Solo. Unless I missed something, why didn't he already have a last name? He mentions his father so clearly he would have been given one at birth.

    Was the perfect nod to tie in to the Rey 13 parsecs comment in TFA!

    He sees himself as an outlaw, obviously he needs an alias, and Solo sounds cool.

    My favorite Scene was Han and Chewie meeting for the first time.

    I didn't expect Han and Chewie's first encounter to be a fight in a muddy pit; and Chewie as the "Beast" no less. :eek::cool: On one hand, it was funny; but on the other it was a surprisingly sweet moment. Seeing poor Chewbacca chained up in a muddy pit, and chided into attacking Han. Then Han showing that he understood Shyriiwook; and actually speaking to Chewbacca in the great Wookiee's own languge, to calm him down, was touching. :)

    I really love Emilia in this movie. Especially the cape try on scene and her eventual betrayal. I also love the enfys and maul reveals. Sabacc and vol are awesome too. Also all the adversaries at least get in something before being foiled which I really like. Except the slaver I guess.

    The Sabaac game at the end, with the reference to ESB (Lando's greetings to Han and the gang on the Bespin platform) and the shot of the Falcon flying away with the main duo at the controls.

    The final fight in Vos's office/chambers/boudoir sticks with me. It was so beautifully shot and choreographed. I deeply appreciated Qi'ra's badassness.

    When Becket says something like "Good call kid, I would have killed you." Wrapped up his and Han's story arcs very well.

    Not a scene, but I liked that Tobias' crew weren't smugglers or even thieves really but legit space pirates. They're bad guys. It's the right origin story for Han in that sense.

    That line has made me legit laugh out loud both times, and both times I've been the only person in the theater to do so. I don't care. It's funny.

    Also, Qi'ra tries on lando's ESB cape. Don't know if anyone caught that yet. I noticed it today. So good!

    Yep. His legacy to Han was not to trust anybody. Becket brought Han into the space pirate life in the first place as well, which is a big deal. Though he tried to stifle Han’s personality (to keep his eyes down, etc) which as we know, is part of his magic and success.

    I noticed that immediately!
    Brought him in to the space pirate life, but not the pirate life. Han was already pulling heists on Corellia clearly since he was double crossing Proxima for personal gain so he could get off Corellia and become a pilot.

    Han the Corellian fugitive/outlaw became Han the Galactic fugitive/outlaw.

    When the Tognath and the Rodian fought and beat Vos’s guards on Savareen. Favorite new alien and favorite old alien. Just perfect.

    Mimban was terrifying, that trooper screaming he couldn’t feel his legs actually bothered me and made me uncomfortable. Wow

    The moment when Chewie sits down in the co-pilot's seat and the music starts playing....

    The battle with the Imperial Army. I didn't expect that, and liked seeing that sort of AT-AT Commander look.

    Pretty much everything with L3, especially the robot rebellion. Brilliant.
