Boycotting Solo due to unahppiness with TLJ and Disney/KK's politics seems to be the most logical explanation to me as well. There were numerous videos and posts from fans saying they were boycotting Solo for this very reason. I did not see a single post or video from anyone, anywhere, saying they weren't seeing Solo because the Avengers or Deadpool were still playing. Nor did I see or hear anyone say they wouldn't see Solo because there have been too many Star Wars movies recently. Those may indeed be the reasons, but the evidence is lacking. There is more than enough evidence of the intense hatred for TLJ, however.This really doesn't apply to me because I quoted part of a conversation already included in this thread. Has nothing to do with me thinking it's my private playground. And it irks me that I am being made the example when many others (V_F, DMX) are much more at fault than I. So I want everyone to know I am not the troll enemy here.
I was sick and tired of watching innocent people be attacked and called slanderous names by Vicarious_Steve, DarkManX and a few others just because we didn't like the crappy movie they like.
I have been on these boards for 18 years and never once seen such nonsense. Unfortunately I got caught up it in and sunk to their level. Won't happen again.
For the record my post was worded very similar to one that Vicarious_Steve posted toward IanC or Jeremiah (unsure which at the moment) after Vicarious_Steve viciously and wrongly (and off topic) brought racism into the discussion.
It was just a way to give him a taste of his own medicine.
To stay on topic, the main reason for Solo bombing was because TLJ was so horrible fans lost faith in Disney Star Wars and were either boycotting the movie or just plain gave up hoping for a god movie from them.
