Well not a movie for review this week, so I am putting on my sci -fi fan hat for just this week, no guesses what I will be talking about!! The above picture might give you a clue.
The new trailer for the soon to be released Solo: A Star Wars Story came onto the internet this week and it made me come to a realization, of the recent new Star Wars movie releases I think am more a fan of the stand alone stories than the current trilogy.
I think this may be me showing my age here but as they are more closely based around the story line of the original trilogy and they appeal more to me and what I liked about them in the beginning all those years ago.
Now don’t get me wrong I do want to see how the current trilogy plays out after Star Wars: The Last Jedi but if I am being honest here, it has not engaged me in the way that the storyline of Rogue One did and that am I hoping that Solo will as well.
Is this because this new trilogy while it does have some older familiar faces in it, is asking me to invest in the story of a new set of heroes and villians or is it just a rerun with some changes of what came before – the same tale just told slightly differently with a new set of faces.
Maybe I just prefer something more familiar, something that talks more to that young child rather than the grown up I now am. Is it that as we all grow up that childlike sense of wonder dissipates somewhat, am I being too critical of the currently trilogy? Will today’s child get misty eyed all those years hence about this current crop of three movies?Discuss.
Sorry if you are not as a big sci-fi fan as I know I am, I will be back to normal next week.
