For Better Or Worse... ("SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY")



I'm not sure if it's just the internet and social media being so prominent in our culture that we're seeing such a divide in the Star Wars fandom or if it's been there since the prequels, but there has been a rise in fan backlash. There is an ugly side of it, but it's not all of it. They just happen to side with the former fans that have been disappointed with the Disney takeover of Lucasfilm. For the record, I have enjoyed all of the films released ("The Force Awakens," "Rogue One," "The Last Jedi"). But it seems the last one that was released broke the fandom in two. I don't rank it high on my list (mainly because the Original Trilogy will probably remain a Top Three until I die), but I still enjoyed it and didn't think it was an abomination. And as I get ready to see "Solo: A Star Wars Story" I go in as a fan. For better or worse. This franchise means the world to me. As a seven year old seeing "Return Of The Jedi" and having that film change my life, I don't easily break from the saga that sparked my imagination. Nor do I take away a former fans disillusionment from this current era. One of my best friends HATED "The Last Jedi" and it was a bit unsettling having to discuss it with him. And we were both fans of the prequels.
I have been accused of liking everything I go out and see. It's not true, but I can see why people say that. I don't go into a theater to hate on any film. And this is especially true with a Star Wars film. And wasn't even asking for a Han Solo stand alone film. So here's to (hopefully) a fun time at the theater and to everyone else just looking for a fun space opera...May The Force Be With You!
