    You know how much I hate to keep harping on this, but in an alternate universe, these things would have been adjacent to each other for Chicago visitors:

    Although I'm not entirely sure there's any alternate universe where Chicago makes sound city planning decisions.

    Solo at 70% Fresh on RT. Everyone I don't like/make fun of BTFO.

    Deadpool 2 has dropped a bit too. Let's assume that neither is a masterpiece.

    Critics Consensus: A flawed yet fun and fast-paced space adventure, Solo: A Star Wars Story should satisfy newcomers to the saga as well as longtime fans who check their expectations at the theater door.


    Sounds good.

    reading some of the reviews they are counting as "fresh" reinforces the problem with rotten tomatoes scores. just one example:

    "Solo is not a bad film, just a relentlessly average one that has no reason to exist."

    How lazy. The reviewer lifted that directly from here.

    metacritic has it as 65.

    You have to admire the phrase "Check your expectations at the door." I don't think I ever heard it before The Phantom Menace was released. Since then of course it's always in circulation.

    Well, if it's any consolation, it really wasn't a Star Wars Museum, at least exclusively. It would have consisted of other works from comic books, movies, etc.

    "Don't Expect Much, and You Won't Be Disappointed"

    Solo: A Star Wars Story


    With tag lines / review like that, who couldn't be excited.

    Critics generally don't seem to give outright negative reviews to big tentpole movies unless they're aggressively, almost intentionally bad-- the kind that squander the things that should be inherent to a large budget (effects, editing, costumes, cinematography, etc). Zack Snyder DC films, for example. Comfortable mediocrity of the MCU and Abrams vein get a shrug and an RT "Fresh" label.

    Avengers IW Spoiler reference concerning DP2
    If Cable isn't the hero and he doesn't kill everyone, then it'll be a bad movie.

    I prefer "Movie reviews are like mothers; everybody's got one."

    I feel like that reviewer looked into my soul.

    Also: There are a few posters about whom I could say this.

    Since it’s in all the reviews, can I just say this?

    The origin of the name “Solo” is so horrendously stupid that you all boo-ed it out of existence even when people were trying to joke hyperbolically about the potential weaknesses of this film. This film not only actually uses said explanation but does so unironically.

    It is bewildering how dumb this whole project is. Stupefying.

    Yes, that’s another lazily written “too big to fail” cultural phenomenon.

    Are my posts phenomenal? I tend to feel they are workman-like and pedestrian in making whatever points that they do.
