Finally saw Solo at the dollar cinema. It was fair but had me appreciating one reference.

Teras Kasi!  Seriously, I had no clue that was cannon.  Maybe the game isn't, but I heard the reference to the fighting style and I made a visible reaction and my wife had to ask me "what's the big deal?!"

I was oddly giddy.  I know it wasn't a great fighting game but I enjoyed it as a kid and I appreciated seeing it mentioned in the film and it was completely unexpected.

I did the same thing. I was like.... "Wait. What? Did they just reference a shitty PS1 game?!" haha. So good.

That's almost verbatim what I told my wife!

Wait, Teras Kasi's cannon, but they turn a blind eye to Shadows of the Empire that used to be cannon?

What, are their priorities mixed up, or is this an attempt at an apology? lol

Yeah, I dunno.  I was most miffed about the loss of Mara Jade.  I think they pick-and-choose what is canon.  Also, it's my understanding (which I learned just yesterday) that Dash Rendar is NOT cannon but since his ship is seen in the updated ANH footage, leaving Mos Eisley, supposedly the Outrider is canon but Dash is not... yet.  But he could be one day.

It's confusing and sometimes I just don't understand.  The should have just kept the expanded universe or at least selectively stated which stories weren't canon.  But, then, that wouldn't have justified paying high-dollar money to get big-hollywood producer/writers involved in the new stories.

Teras Kasi was one of my favorite references of that movie too. I played that game with my best friend a lot as kids and we both looked over at each other with huge grins when that happened in the film. Just a lot of cool nods to long time Star Wars fans.

I didn't think the movie was amazing but I went in with low expectations so I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was fun, it didn't need to be much more than that. Ron Howard did a really good job gluing everything back together imo.

Generally, this was my experience in multiple ways.  I had a good buddy in high school and even when I went away to college, we basically hung out all summer when I came home.  Back in HS, this was one of many PS1 games we wore out.

I also felt that Howard did a decent job.  I had low expectations and I felt the film was "good but not great".  I think the casting could have been stronger in some ways, and maybe the whole thing could have gone without 20 to maybe 30 minutes, but other than that, I'd say it was solid C+/B-.  I'm glad I saw it... but I don't have to see it again.

Dash Rendar is at least cannon in my heart. lol

Sometimes, I like to make up my own cannon, retconing senarios to make them "fit". I'm mostly like that with Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball GT. lol

This.
I want to like the newer films but I just can't. I will say, I enjoyed Solo a lot more than anything else they have put out.

i've loved the Disney Star Wars. Rogue One stands as my favorite. That being said, Shadows of the Empire will always be canon to me. i'm still holding out hope that we get that movie at some point.

haven't seen Solo yet. waiting on video for that one.
