Solo Teaser/Trailer

Recommended Posts

In my mind, here are the essentials of a complete Solo movie:

  • Han meets Chewie
  • Han meets Lando
  • Han wins Falcon off of Lando
  • Kessel Run

 

Jabba can be squeezed in at any moment.

Just sad how our expectations have fallen. Being old enough to remember the huge buzz of the first and second ones, even if the new films were truly excellent they would still be lost among the tide of other offerings that appear every month.

Many years ago some SW art trading cards came out (Visions perhaps??). Anyways, the artists, some known some not using their talent showcasing some of the SW Universe. There is one in the set of Han's hands & Chewie's chest in the background. It shows Han burning his Imperial ID. That picture has always stuck with me. Funny if I don't see it in this movie I'll think it was left out. :lol:

Hard to argue with that. I was only 4 years old when Star Wars came out so don't really remember the hype over it but was old enough to be into it by ROTJ. I honestly don't think we could repeat that feeling nowadays. I'll be content if this turns out as good as Rogue One.

As long as this movie isn't full of plot holes and poorly developed characters, i'll be happy

 

and it's sad when THAT is what makes me satisfied with a star wars movie now

Regarding Ep.IV New Hope, originally there wasn't much hype prior to its release outside of scifi circles. It opened on only a few dozen screens. Within weeks, it exploded into a sleeper blockbuster.

 

Movies of the era like Star Trek the Motion Picture and Superman would've had a lot more hype in comparison.

Well you are asking an awful lot of Hollywood writers. ::D:

That pretty much defined Star Wars movies from the get go. 

SW:ANH isn't really any better than the others in terms of that.

i at least could enjoy SW:ANH despite its flaws and at least Empire Strikes Back gave character development and interesting story mechanics. I cannot say the same for  Force Awakens or Last Jedi, which i consider terrible from start to finish, from story to characters *shrug

I would prefer that they weren’t making ‘prequel character movies’ but as they are I’m prepared to get behind it.

The main issue for me is that since I was a boy I’ve been conjuring Star Wars  history with my imagination. So I know what I think the Kessel Run was and how Han and Chewie met...and so on. I like that people were left to fill in the gaps for themselves.

When you understand how everything works then everything starts to lose its magic (see the Force and medicloriens -sp-)

I think Prequels wind up being attractive to writers (and in Hollywood, producers) because a lot of times it's easier to write "how we got to the start of the movie/book" than it is to write "where do we go from here, now that we have a happy ending?"

      This was my favorite project of 2017 due to how much I pushed my abilities in creating it. It was my first major conversion of this sort, first time doing texture, first major use of OSL, and first Sci Fi base built fully from scratch. So lots of firsts with this one. Those of you who followed my WIP thread know what I went through with this one;  the OSL dilemma, redoing the base, and sculpting new hands at the last minute. In all I am proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone and I cannot give enough thanks to those who posted in the WIP thread, your encouragement gave me the push that I needed.
       
      So this conversion is the result of critique I received at ReaperCon 2016 regarding my Open entry, it was to up the difficulty of my conversions. When I got home I went through the Reaper web store and found minis that I call "blank slates", ones that I felt would be a good base for multiple conversions. I found a few that sparked an idea but the one that I got stuck on was Anirion and how he would make the perfect Jedi. So he was the project I choose for my ReaperCon 2017 Open entry but I made myself focus on having fun with it and not worrying about it being perfect. When I was finished, I was extremely happy with the results but I knew that there were somethings that could be better. Knowing that, I was extremely surprised to find that I got a gold medal in Open and blown away when it was announced that I got the Open Silver Sophie. So again thank you to everyone who gave me feedback in the WIP thread.
       
      WIP thread: Wizard of a Different Sort: Anirion Conversion
       
      Conversion breakdown:
      -Reshaped hood and sleeves
      -Smoothed out cloak to remove border
      -Removed staff and bag?
      -Repositioned arms 
      -Added light saber out of styrene and metal piece
      -Added some strands of hair
      -Resculpted hands

      Our next Kickstarter T-Shirt is ORIGINAL TRILOGY: Est. 1977. True Jedis know true quality. It is elegant apparel for a more civilized age. Wear. Or wear not. There is no try on. You can't strike a true original down, for it will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. The Force of original fashion will be with you. Always. Some may call you a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder, but when it comes to a true original, they say, "I love it." We know. When this shirt you wear, the last word in fashion you will be. Fashion Force will run strong in you with this. Pass on what you have learned. Frills. Hmph. Excess. A Jedi craves not these things. This shirt may not look like much to some, but it's got it where it counts, kid.
       
       
      I'm in for one right now, but may add another, because this one is... just right...

      Before posting I searched this section to see if there was already a discussion going on but didn't find anything. I could be wrong though. I think it also goes without saying this post and any subsequent posts will include spoilers.
       
      I finally got around to seeing The Last Jedi, I was waiting for the crowds to die down. So I ended up in a noon showing with only five other people (mostly older folks who I can only assume also waited for the crowds to die down).  
       
      Right off the bat I want to say I'm not impressed with the new film. Rather than go on a rant about what I liked and hated though I'd prefer to start a discussion of the new film. 
       
      What did you like? What did you hate? Were you happy with the final product?

         The first trailer for Marvel's Infinity War was released today.  It looks amazing, but I can't help but worry it will be a big muddled mess.    Part of me is a little sad to see this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end.  There were some highs and lows, but in general it has been a very enjoyable trip.
       I can still remember watching the original Iron Man movie for the first time.  How quickly the years have passed.  I will have to plan a big Marvel movie marathon before next May.  :)
