Well the first batch of reviews for Solo are in and... for the most part they're fairly decent. They're not stellar like I would have hoped. The ironic thing is that while some people might have hated TLJ, I've got a feeling lots of people will come away liking Solo.

Solo's facing an uphill battle. It's gonna be really hard for even the most diehard fans to accept anyone but Harrison Ford as Han Solo. (Probably harder for the most diehard fans.) I think we're all going to come around, but I'm expecting an initial backlash from the fans.

If all this leads to a Nien Nunb spinoff, I'll be a happy man.

Hmmm, maybe this could lead to a new LOC, Top 50 Star Wars characters you want a spin-off for.

Truthfully, Ron Howard is the biggest turn off for me. His films just don't seem like what I want from a Star Wars movie. I'm sure I'll get around to seeing it, but next opportunity we have to go to a movie will probably result in us seeing Deadpool 2 instead.

Don't underestimate Ron Howard, he's made some really good quality stuff in his career as a director.

I think he's an okay director, just not a great one. And given that he was hired after the great Chris Miller and Phil Lord were removed, clearly Ron Howard is only there because the studio wants someone they can control and who won't take chances.

Well, I think the most important thing is that I actually reallly like Ron Howard so possibly by extension I will totally dig his vision of Star Wars.

The studio certainly could have chosen a lot worse. Like Paul WS Anderson or Raja Gosnell.

Or that one other choice that I will not mention here because it would be like uttering the words of the black speech in Imladris.

No matter how many critically acclaimed movies he directs, he's always going to be Richie Cunningham in my mind.

Uwe Boll? Tommy Wisseau? James Nguyen?

All good(or bad, depending on how you look at it) choices but I was thinking of one that is just as bad as those three if not worse.
