Thread: Solo deleted scene Imperial Trial

  1. #11
    The whole "loud minority of angry fanboys" thing is as tired and annoying as the people complaining about TLJ...we are all fanboys and it's not a minority. A large portion of the fanbase didn't care for the movie. The people that loved TLJ are as vocal as the complainers. Everyone needs to get over it.

    Just for clarity I was partly joking about TLJ being the reason Solo bombed. Solo had a lot going against it, and while the lingering TLJ discontent didn't help, it certainly was not THE reason. Not by a longshot.

    Personally I loved Solo and cannot wait for the Blu-Ray release. I'm usually not all that interested in non-canon half finished deleted scenes though. If it was that important it would have been in the actual movie.

    All that probably contributed more to the Box Office performance of Solo, than the loud minority of angry fanboys that hated The Last Jedi.

    I love this scene for all the reasons listed in this thread - and also because we get to see a little more of the TIE-Brute / Heavy variant - plus Han wearing either:

    - an Imperial cadet training flight suit
    - a pre-ANH, earlier Empire TIE-Pilot outfit
    - a dedicated TIE-Heavy pilot flight suit

    Before Solo, I typically envisioned a Solo origins story as a 'coming of age' anti-hero story loosely based on the 19th seafaring novels, though admittedly I can't say if Treasure Island for example is a good but loose example. The popularity of those novels were either the 'naval officer off to the sea' or 'the search for buried treasure' scenarios. Anyway, I felt going that direction would be regarded as a sort of pastiche to the myth and legend approach Lucas for his trilogy.

    I'm glad that scene was cut.

    The senior Imperials just put up with Han's attitude to them in a military disciplinary hearing? Makes them look like a joke instead of a power to be reckoned with.

    I suspect that this kind of thing came from the original director team, and if so then getting rid of them was a good call.
    May you live in interesting times.

    It got tepid reviews because it's a tepid film. It's bland, kind of boring and overwhelmingly meh, with a fake Han Solo.

    This is the sole reason why 'Solo' failed. Nobody cared for it.

    The whole film should have been about somebody else.

    I'm pretty sure we had tons of people on this very forum complaining about how there wasn't a trailer for this movie until 3 months before it came out, plus the TV spots weren't particularly engaging. Past Star Wars films from this decade have had a much longer, stronger marketing push.

    This film did have a bad release date. Every other film released in May didn't have to compete with a massive franchise sequel coming out every other week.

    While I liked Solo, I've gotta agree that it is a pretty bland movie, and deserved the reviews it got.
