Solo - A Star Wars Story - (2018 movie) image

A prequil adventure with the eponymous Han Solo. It has no excitement since with a prequil there can't be any sense of accomplishment without any chance of failure.

A franchise so strong I didn't even know this movie was released or was even being made.

Not recommended, even for fans. It gives and does nothing. It's vaguely entertaining.

Supergirl is super, and something about the last of the fleet that isn't the last, and Leia is immortal and shit characters and shit writing.

The earlier movies are mandatory for this. If you thought the earlier movies were shit, then this is the nail in the coffin. Just let the franchise die.

  • Properly titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi

An assassination attempt on a senator gets her two superpowered-bodyguards, one of whom has the hots for her and whose investigation leads to a mystery that has remained shrouded for ten years.

While nowhere near as good as I.I, this is an adequate watch and certainly head and shoulders above Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.

Definitely do not watch this until you have episode III lined up. At present, I do not know if there is a phantom edit of that. So.. I don't know if I can recommend this. Right now it's flagged as disliked, but I don't feel that I wasted my time watching it. I just feel let down by the ending.

The Trade Federation blockades a peaceful planet, and decisive action is required to bring political and military strength to bear.

An astonishing improvement on the original. Even though it's lower visual quality than it's original can be, it's worth a watch. Very highly recommended especially to fans of the original trilogy who were disappointed by this new trilogy.

Random people go on a merry adventure looking for Luke.

DO NOT WATCH Not just because it takes a steaming dump overtop of the already steaming dumpyness of the prequils, but because it's badly written and unresolved. Go and watch The Matrix 2 instead. That piece of shit somehow has less issues.

A standard Robot Chicken, but with various skits parodying the Star Wars franchise.

Have a half hour to waste? Give this a shot, but if you don't like it within the first few minutes go do something better. Robot Chicken is hit-and-miss.

Yet another MMO, but this one is set in the Star Wars universe. Because light sabres, yo.

Conclusion: Amateur night.

This would have been great in the late nineties. Right now, the voiceovers are fantastic but the quest interactive cutscenes are ugly. The choices are sometimes vague and unforgiving. There is spectacular effort with all the rendered videos, but that just took away from resources for the game itself.
