The Title for the Han Solo Film Has Finally Been Revealed

It’s been months since the untitled-Han Solo film started production and now, finally, it has a name. Here it is.

Is this title that surprising? Not really. In fact, it’s so predictable my sister knew this was going to be the name of the movie earlier this year. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. I mean, this film is strictly about Han Solo and so shouldn’t the title have something to do with his iconic name? Yes, but my only issue with this title is how it looks.

Rogue One looked like this.

As you can see the font is much thinner and it just looks more appealing. Then you’ve got Solo, A Star Wars story and the words are just so bold and yellow, it slightly looks childish. I think they could’ve definitely done a better job. I do understand that the titles kind of give a feel for the movie. Rogue One was a much more dire, serious Star Wars film and so it makes sense that the title would be this brown color. Judging from the title for Solo it’s going to be a lot more comedic and lighter than your usual Star Wars film. I hope this isn’t yet another sign that LucasFilm might’ve bitten off more than they can chew with this Han Solo film.

I thank you for reading my post and I hope you have a wonderful day.

A Spoiler-Free Review of War for the Planet of the Apes

When War for the Planet of the Apes was coming out in July I actually didn’t want to see it. I had seen the last one and it wasn’t that great so I figured this movie wouldn’t be too good either. Then I heard so many fantastic reviews about it that I just decided maybe I should watch it after all. So it became available on Digital and I finally watched it. Here’s what I have to say about it.

This is hands down the best Planet of the Apes movie that has ever been made. First of all, the CGI was mindblowing. I mean look at this picture. This is Caesar, played by the legendary Andy Serkis, and he’s a CGI character, yet he looks about as real as the humans in the movie. There were so many close-up shots of monkeys’ faces in the movie, mainly Caesar, that I was just watching the movie stunned. The CGI never wavered, the apes never began to look fake, it really was impressive and downright stunning to see all of these expressions and actions the apes made and it just never felt artificial.

My Favorite Part of The Last Jedi Trailer

It’s the last day of the week and this has been a great week for Star Wars fans. The Last Jedi trailer debuted this Monday and I’m still losing my mind over it. There were so many fantastic shots in that trailer that it’s pretty much a perfect trailer, but there is one section of the trailer that happens to always make my heart thrum with excitement and I am here to talk about it. Enjoy!

What I loved the most about this trailer is that it happened to surprisingly showcase a lot of footage involving Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren is such an interesting, complex character and I love that this trailer showed that this next Star Wars film is going to continue evolving his story.

The Porgs Are Stealing Everybody’s Hearts in the New Last Jedi Trailer

I’m one of those Star Wars fans that doesn’t like Ewoks very much. Ewoks destroy my brain. They’re not cute. They’re just very annoying teddy bears with sticks and rocks. So when I heard that there would be these cute creatures called Porgs living on the planet, Ach-To, with Luke I was excited and skeptical. I’m totally cool with cute new creatures in Star Wars but the question was, would these Porgs be the new Ewoks.

When the behind-the-scenes clip debuted this July I got my first close up look at the Porgs and I was pleasantly surprised.

The Porg looked very, very adorable and I was confident that these new alien creatures wouldn’t be the bane of my existence like the Ewoks are. And so then Entertainment Weekly had a special spread on The Last Jedi back in August and it gave me another look at the Porgs.

There Are New Entries Into the Star Wars Databank!

On starwars.com there is a databank that has nearly every character, alien, planet, etc. from Star Wars in it. Think of it as a virtual encyclopedia. Well throughout the months, new entries have been added to the databank from The Last Jedi and after the new trailer was released a whole bunch of new things were added and I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Resistance Bomber

So, these Resistance Bombers are cool because they drop proton bombs onto Star Destroyers, as long as they can get to them. That’s where the Starfighters come into play. They act as a defense against the First Order while the Resistance Bombers get into position. The new trailer has given a better look at the dogfight that’s going to happen above D’Qar and I can’t wait to see it in its full glory.

So, let me start talking about the new revelations I’ve gotten from this trailer.
