  1. It was a turn of phrase, but given Craig and the director were cobbling scenes together themselves at the 11th hour I think it's justified in this case. God, that movie. It just flails from one shakey cam action scene to the next.
  2. QoS was screwed by the writers strike. It basically filmed without a finished script, and Christ did it show.
  3. I wonder if Lucas could have possibly known these throwaway backstories he came up with in about half an hour for all these characters in the 70s would form the basis of a slew of tentpole films 40 years later.
  4. I'm continually baffled at how much this forum cares about easily gamed audience-scores. I know in the franchise wars people exploit whatever metrics then can use in an argument, but c'mon...
  5. Craig's odd-number Bonds seem to be the good ones. I just hope they've had the necessary prep time for this: Spectre was a textbook example of what rushing a blockbuster results in.
  6. There should be concern for the next episode, but I think the point is that we can only see the impact of that when it comes out. Solo is very much failing on its own terms.
  7. I don't know what you're point is, but it sounds like you're agreeing with me. It shouldn't be making such little money, but it doesn't feel like an event, so it isn't. I'm not even going to entertain the notion that SW fans know what they want from these movies - consensus seems to be all over the place on that.
  8. Still don't think this has much to do with TLJ. It's simply that this movie never once felt appealing or necessary. If its failure makes Disney shit-scared for its other cash-grab prequels then, well, good.
  9. Starting to feel like the rock bottom expectations for this will ultimately help rather than hinder its reception. Though I also thought the same about Solo.
  10. Off topic(ish): Netflix now has a higher valuation than Disney. That's insane. https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/may/24/netflix-disney-most-valuable-media-company-latest-list?CMP=twt_gu
  11. http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/jurassic-world/news/a857749/jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-first-reactions/ Twitter's famous pre-release understatement strikes again.
  12. I wouldn't mistake a few people on this forum taking any excuse to froth about TLJ as passion for Solo, but we'll see what the box office is like soon enough.
  13. The performance of the third film in the trilogy will tell us that. If Solo underperforms it'll be because it's what it looks like: a non-event.
  14. Feige makes movies to keep the fanbase watching indefinitely. That's not a criticism: he's a bloody genius at it.
