I decided to take the liberty this weekend to indulge in the latest Star Wars trilogy. I can not remember the last time I ever seen, "Return of the Jedi". I haven't always kept up with the series. There have been other chapters after, "Return of the Jedi" that I failed to acknowledge and give accolades towards.
This weekend sparks a new addition to the Star Wars trilogy with "Solo: A Star Wars Story". I'm not expecting that 40 year old glow which I received in my early childhood from the debut of the premiere of Star Wars 1. This isn't why I'm here. I just have a curiosity and interest to see this trend that the people adore so much.
I have to admit I was impressed with tonight's showing of, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film is based on the outlaw soldier, Han. You get the sense of the film by its performance and title. Its solely based on Han Solo's earlier years. Which intrigued my interest to have a look at this film in the first place. Han Solo happen to be one of my favorite, Star Wars figures. Of course next to Luke Skywalker, everyone loves "LUKE!"
However, this wasn't the same Han Solo from 40 years ago. If anyone can even remember, 1970 Han Solo played by Harrison Ford with his debonair looks and rugged, bad boy swagger. You know today's version was completely the opposite. Well, you know they needed a younger, immature person to play the part. It wasn't just that, Young Han had to remain on his grind and on desperate measures, and he was very impatient when it came to accomplishing tasks, and not to mention a tad bit annoying towards others. The sole purpose of this concept, he was being broken in. It's taking a look at the man he was to what he became, an intergalactic warrior.
