  • Enjoy your guy pretending to be Han Solo movie!

  • I enjoyed the guy pertending to me Han Solo movie.

  • We just finished how black panther should have ended and I just saw the new

  • Star Wars Story: Solo, so it's another good time for another HISHE review!

  • Thats right I said hizzy!

  • Thats right I said hizzy!

  • So what do you say? You want to talk some solo?

  • Then Lets Get TO IT!

  • He's gonna be in star wars

  • Gonna be a pilot

  • Gonna meet Chewbacca

  • Gonna Fly the Falcon

  • In Solo

  • Han Solo

  • Han Solo

  • Han Solo

  • Solooooo!

  • ah man I wish that song wasn't a real thing and I just made that up

  • I apologize

  • Solo! The second Star Wars story to cram somewhere in between those

  • prequels and original trilogy that sprinkles a few more details that you

  • may or may not have been interested in knowing on characters and stories you alredy knew about!

  • Where rogue one focuses on how the rebels got them Death Star Plans...

  • Solo focuses on you guessed it the origins of Han Solo and company

  • where do they all meet who's that new girl and who the Millennium Falcon is

  • shiny

  • it's a very light film it doesn't have too much depth but I thought it was

  • still a good fun adventure that totally sets up new paths to keep these new Star

  • Wars stories going which is where I think the line in the sand is drawn for

  • a lot of people some might call that milking the franchise to death where

  • other fans might think, "I've been waiting my whole life for more Star Wars"

  • So bring on the stories!

  • Personally I think it's a little bit of both.

  • Originally directed by the lego movie guys

  • and then something went weird and in suddenly Ron Howard has the job!

  • The news made everyone overly skeptical and like most established movies rooted in

  • our childhood the internet did not think this movie was a good idea.

  • myself included, but I'm not too proud to say that I was pleasantly converted I

  • thought the film was good I had a good time I have plenty of questions and some

  • annoyances which we can get you later but for the most part I really enjoyed

  • the movie. I say go check it out! It's not gonna wreck your childhood.

  • It does add some new layers to the memory of Han

  • but they aren't complete deal-breakers so

  • you want to dive in and let's talk spoilers

  • I can't believe they showed Boba Fett with a Mace Windu tattoo on his neck

  • I'm kidding that's that's not a thing

  • and Boba Fett isn't really seen in the

  • movie as far as I know he's probably like hidden in the shadows but anyway

  • I didn't see him

  • What did I like about the movie?

  • I loved the cinematography

  • I like the style of these Star Wars stories so far

  • they don't feel like green screen studio production they feel like real

  • get your hands dirty film making

  • they're actually outside!

  • look at the... wind!

  • Bradford Young's cinematography in Solo is very much like a classic Western

  • everything is backlit making a lot of high contrast images it just looks cool

  • I don't really like that there isn't a

  • constant opening style for the Star Wars story yet I suppose I prefer this blue

  • text style anyway you guys don't care about text what did you think about Han?!

  • if you watched my Rogue One Review, you know I was not a fan of this Han Solo casting.

  • whatever reason the powers that be at Star Wars

  • didn't want Anthony Ingruber to be Han Solo

  • so when they released that short list of actors I just thought...

  • then after I saw a baby driver with

  • Ansel Elgort I thought "Well you guys certainly chose

  • wrong shortlist that kid is totally a young Han Solo" but after a while I got

  • tired of having my arms crossed about the whole issue and I watched the movie

  • with pretty low expectations

  • and I found myself thinking this Alden guy has some charm.

  • He's got that tough-guy kind of look he's pointing his blaster the same

  • way you expect Han to do. It's not perfect but you can tell they're trying

  • to do Han justice. This this might actually work. I think I like this

  • version of Han Solo! Yeah for a young Han Solo series I support this guy.

  • If they're intending to make more movies with young Han Solo which I think they are.

  • then I can accept this version of him.

  • overall I thought the story was kind of EH.

  • but only because the story feels a

  • little incomplete. It ends right when specific questions are brought to the table

  • they're supposed to be cliffhangers but

  • they're also why the film his little unsatisfying. The story with Qi'ra

  • and Han feels really unresolved which I'll touch more on later so in a way the

  • movie felt like a show pilot where they just bring up some possibilities to get

  • you excited about the show but if it doesn't really get picked up at least

  • they sold you a pretty good story for the one time through so it's good but

  • it's pretty much just a launchpad.

  • Man, Chewbacca sucked! he's in the mud and

  • they're like taking a shower together... it's like what's with this?

  • I'm just kidding. Chewie is so much the heart of Star Wars it's impossible not to love

  • him every time he's on screen just feel like

  • if you don't like Chewbacca then I feel

  • bad for your grumpy gills soul

  • I thought Donald Glover was so good!

  • He is an awesome Lando so three cheers to that!

  • And three cheers for making him say "Han" that

  • little detail bugged me so much as a kid when Lando would call Han Han and others

  • were clearly saying it differently I look why is he doing it like that so

  • to see them put that in this movie just felt so right. Lando was great so of

  • course I want another episode with him.

  • I did she's got a

  • lot of great moments the droids are kind of stealing the show and Star Wars

  • lately like K2SO and bb-8 all have their spotlight I guess they have to top

  • that 3PO and r2d2 screen presence. Which also.. No C-3PO and R2D2 in this

  • movie! Isn't that like Star Wars sacrilege? Or did I miss them I guess

  • another shoehorned segment like in rogue one would have felt kind of silly to do

  • that twice but they were a Star Wars constant until now it's kind of sad

  • they're not there this time I thought l3 37 was cool I don't know how I feel

  • about her being uploaded into the Falcon like the Falcon is now part droid

  • revolutio. Even the Millennium Falcon has to have like a rebel spirit at heart

  • I guess but it adds a new layer to when you think about r2d2 talking to the

  • Falcon and old movies now there's an actual voice that you can imagine

  • which makes sense

  • my biggest complaint was that I didn't like the Empire named

  • Han Solo. That whole concept felt weird to me like Han would just take any last

  • name from the empire and then keep it as his name

  • this is either a giant set up for something years to come down the road or

  • it's just sloppy character development so I didn't really like that about his name

  • I didn't like that the Kessel run wasn't

  • really like an important thing it wasn't really witnessed by anyone

  • Han's fame is just him dropping lines like "I made the Kessel run 12 parsecs"

  • and nobody is like "Well put this guy's name on the board cuz that's never

  • happened before!"

  • "Hey Johnny, did you hear the news!?"

  • "This guy did the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs!"

  • "He's gonna be a legend!"

  • I wouldn't really want that dialogue necessarily but I really

  • expected the Kessel Run to be something totally different I was also expecting

  • that it to be the reason Han won the Millennium Falcon but so much for that

  • so Paul Bettany plays the new crime lord

  • Dryden Vos who leads the crimson dawn and I don't know if it's just because

  • he's not this gross slimy fat slug creature but I thought he was the first

  • Star Wars crime boss character that actually felt intimidating maybe just

  • because he's human I'm kind of seen the emotion his face but I was really good

  • Spoiler Alert! She's a GIRL!

  • Wow

  • Isn't that Sooo Unbelievable???

  • no I'm actually completely fine with girls being strong in real life and in

  • movies so if this was supposed to be a shock reveal

  • What? She's a Girl?

  • It didn't really stick for me

  • they sort of make you think that Enfys Nest

  • could be the daughter of Beckett and Val but it goes nowhere

  • and then the twist is she's actually helping the supplies for the rebellion

  • so she was bad but plot twist she's really the good guy after all

  • kind of like Han.

  • I thought Beckett was fine

  • I mean he's giving Han everything like the gun and he's teaching him along the

  • way but it didn't really have a deep impact on me however his entire purpose

  • of the film is my favorite thing about movies so

  • My favorite part about this film is that it one giant reason to show where Han learned

  • to always shoot first

  • if that doesn't speak volumes to the

  • whole special-edition decisions from years back I don't know what does

  • George Lucas gives up Star Wars and they're like "We need to make a Star Wars

  • movie about Han Solo learning to blast some fool like it does to Greedo in 1977

  • nobody's gonna shoot at the same, there's not gonna be a weird head jolt

  • He's gonna blast someone right in the chest BLAM!

  • I love it that's Han Solo

  • that's a scoundrel

  • that's the dude

  • to make Han shoot first I said that duh

  • I tried to look for a deeper message in this story at one point Lando says something along the lines of

  • I felt like this was kind of the source of most people's motivation in the movie

  • Beckett's lesson was don't trust anyone and you'll never be disappointed but Han

  • and Chewie totally trust one another so I don't think that rule works for everyone

  • I think the point of story is the

  • question can bad guys be good

  • I'm joking

  • if you look at the love story in this movie it reflects this idea.

  • you see Han asking Qi'ra to go with him after all they've

  • been through but she resists, but not cuz she doesn't want to, it's from a trapped stance.

  • saying it's too late for me I've done things you wouldn't agree with she

  • was good but now she has serious baggage and she's a part of something she can't

  • get away from and then it's revealed it's surprise that things you can't get

  • away from is Darth Maul you guys!

  • He's not dead and he's got new Lieutenant Dan Legs!

  • Just like from the Rebels and or Clone Wars or one of those series

  • and these new twists make you go Whaaaat?

  • and then that's when the movie actually

  • finally gets intriguing everything else was like safe and like I kind of knew

  • what to expect you know? But now I feel like something

  • bigger is going on here with the whole George Lucas it's like poetry see they rhyme...

  • kind of thing. If this is important it means that Qi'ra could be

  • drifting to the dark side but they're still good in her yet she

  • feels it's too late for her does that sound familiar

  • It is too late for me.

  • if this is what's happening I think

  • this is kind of cool because I want to believe we are seeing the beginning of a

  • bigger story linked to Han.

  • so new Star Wars Theory Time!

  • Because nobody get their hopes up with those and ends up being

  • totally wrong! Right???

  • yay new theory

  • I'm sure nobody else is thinking this is a possibility but now because of this movie

  • I think Qi'ra is actually going to be Rey's mother

  • which will be revealed in a future Star Wars story or in episode 9

  • Emilia Clarke is easily a good choice for being a mother of a strong powerful

  • character and I can totally see a plot where Han gets involved on Tatooine and

  • tries to get Kira back but she ditches him for good once and for all in this sad...

  • kind of scene which would make all of

  • those future force awakens scenes we've had with Rey and Han even more

  • meaningful when you watch them a second time

  • and Han Solo...

  • You feel like he's the father you never had

  • he would have disappointed you

  • I hope that's what's going on but who knows maybe it's all just a bait and switch

  • to launch that obi-wan movie and Rey is just a nobody with dead drunk

  • parents because...

  • Rey Kenobi Y'all.

  • I'm just saying...

  • The name sounds Awesome.

  • But anyway back Solo.

  • Han shot first, Him and Chewie won the Falcon fair and square,

  • Darth Maul's got new legs

  • and Lando is probably off to find a city in the clouds...

  • pretty easy Star Wars film.

  • I thought we where in trouble there for a second but it's fine.

  • we're fine.

  • so those are my loose thoughts on Solo: A Star Wars Story

  • I hope you enjoyed them let me know what

  • you thought about the movie in the comments below

  • Did anything impress you? Did it disappoint you? What are your theories

  • about the new plot twists? I'd love to hear them

  • that's all for now thank you again for watching!

  • but I just wanted to let you know that we are working on that at the moment.
