Solo was complete fanservice. How Han Solo got his blaster. How Han Solo got his ship. The Kessel Run. Meeting Chewbacca. Meeting Lando. Han shot first. Darth Maul. Darth Maul pointlessly activating his lightsaber with Duel of the Fates. Bossk and Aurra Sing references. Explaining why the Falcon has a peculiar dialect. The list goes on... I literally don't think you can go ten minutes in this movie without a reference to something. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying these references are bad. Personally, I think the fanservice in Solo was less intrusive and obnoxious than the fanservice in TFA, I just think Solo had more. I'm just saying that I'd enjoy and appreciate it more if they didn't make four fanservice-filled movies in a row. --------------------------------------------------------------------- I never said Lucasfilm is clogging up the cinema with movies. I actually said earlier that I'd be open to more than one movie a year if they can make it feel substantial. As of now Marvel makes three movies a year. The difference is that the Marvel movies all tie into an ongoing storyline. Even Ant-Man 2 is being advertised as trying into Infinity War. There are people who dismiss some of the individual Marvel character films as "pointless", but most of them actually have weight in the overall storyline. You can't remove any of the recent standalone movies without the overall story being affected. How does Solo factor into the ongoing stoyline besides trivial stuff like "see how Han got his blaster"? I actually really like Rogue One, but I'll be the first to admit that it's pretty pointless in the overall story. They had one reference to hyperpace tracking in the movie. They need to start adding more stuff like that, but stuff that holds more weight in the story. You could remove two out of the four new Star Wars movies, and it wouldn't matter at all. I'd LOVE to have multiple Star Wars movies a year if they all tied into an overall story and supported it. I'm not saying they can't do movies that are completely separate, but there should be some kind of substantial story going on here. There's no cinematic universe happening beyond surface-level connections.
