    Yeah I remember literally none of that. Ironic that the sequence that arguably has the most going on is the one that I ended up not watching.

    I saw "Solo" three times when it was in the theaters two years ago. And I've watched it numerous times since its release on DVD and streaming.

    LOL when you actually sit and describe it all in text it actually sounds ridiculous!! [face_laugh]

    I for one actually enjoyed that whole sequence. I always love films that include bizarre spacial anomalies and whatnot. But I will say that I wish the scale of everything was just...larger. The fog tunnel should've made the Star Destroyer look like a speck-not just barely fit. The maw should've been not like, the size of a city-which is what it looked like, but enormous-like a black hole, the space between the planetoids should've been a little wider, to create more tension in the sequence of them getting closer. etc.

    Ultimately I loved Solo. In fact I might watch it with my kids this weekend now!

    ...Didn't watch it. DC Fandome took up all my attention instead. :p

    I've saw it twice in theater and I think twice at home. I own it and like it a lot, so I'm sure I'll watch it again.

    Zero and zero.

    I've watched isolated clips, though. Heavily disliked them. I just choose to ignore/refuse this film as the canon origins of Han Solo.

    I saw it 4 times in theaters and have watched it a few times since then. Still enjoy it. Not a perfect film but a fun film. Love the soundtrack as well.

    Just watch the movie, and then judge it. The clips are somewhat illustrative of the whole film, but only somewhat.

    Once. It's a bad movie, totally lame with terrible cinematography.
    I don't know what's worse, the unnecessary Maul cameo or the feminist bot.

    It's too much visual noise, quickly edited. For the smartphone-generation.

    The Smartphone generation? Did they precede or follow the totally lame generation?

    You’re right about the cinematography though. And the rabble rousing fembot, and Maul’s cameo. Beyond that I thought it was good fun. Just like OG Star Wars.

    4 times by the way. I’ve watched it 4 times. And I’d gladly watch a sequel.

    I have seen it a lot lately. Saw it in the theater once, but have now seen it a few times on TNT, and at least a dozen times on Disney+. I actually quite like the film, more than I did on my initial viewing in the theater.

    Once on the big screen and a few times since. I really enjoyed it at first but noticed my concentration wavering the last couple of times. I might leave it a few years until the next watch. I don't have that problem with RO or TFA.

    The cast is great and it's a fun film but a lot of it is so murky/colourless it gives me eye strain.

    one time at home.

    And, I don't think I ever want to watch it again since the movie wasn't really interesting for me. Guess that's why the Jedis and the force should be in every Star Wars movie since without them, Star Wars doesn't feel like Star Wars for me.

    Watched it on Disney plus after a break of about a month without seeing it and am really into it after so many viewings it now makes me wish the anthology films werent abandoned so quickly after this film.

    I actually thought the lead actor made a pretty good Han, but the plot and pacing was so boring I couldn't finish it..

    Twice (once in cinemas, once at home). I liked it a little less the second time partially because, thanks to the film's dark lighting, it was a bit hard to see what was going on on a TV screen at daytime compared to a darkened movie theatre. I still like it though, and I love the Kessel Run sequence, which felt very OT to me.

    Frankly, I had no intention of seeing it again after I saw it the one time, but I might see it if it comes to Disney+
