That’s fair. I wasn’t asking for it, but really liked it when we watched it.
It was actually a great story, if not perfect, and the peformances we’re all great (as you hinted at previously).
I’m clearly misremembering how much it made; maybe it was just Disney that considered it a bomb (perhaps just critically?). Now I’m not so sure…though I seem to remember there were story’s going around that Disney may have abandoned whatever they had planned as a direct follow-up.
Though I’m also curious whats going to happen to the new trilogy (or was it two movies?) that Rian Johnson was supposed to do. There was such a vocal backlash to The Last Jedi, I wonder if they’ve abandoned that as well.
Its a common problem with any large, passionate fan base. You’re always going to have some of them that are never happy, even when they get what they think they want.
I remember an interview with G. R. R. Martin, discussing how fans got upset that he kept killing of favorite characters, or making their (characters) lives miserable; he said that fans didn’t know what they wanted, they only think they do. I don’t think that’s always 100% true, but I get his point.
Either way, I’ll be watching Solo with my son again soon. I’m not sure if its on Netflix Canada yet though, I’ll have to check.
