Attention all: this thread is now about your new favourite Star Wars character:
Please cease all unnecessary talk about other Star Wars characters and storylines immediately. All SSLF members should familiarise themselves with Therm Scissorpunch's Wookieepedia article.
At some point, Scissorpunch sat at a gambling table next to the famous smuggler Lando Calrissian.

Egads, you're right, Ocelot! I haven't seen a character this critical to both lore and marketing since Orrimarko's pruny face first appeared! Hopefully this guy is here to do more than fix the copier. (That's a reference to Robot Chicken, only look that up if you're old enough. Yes, that means you.)
The next question is, what critical role will the mighty Therm Scissorpunch take in the Star Wars universe? Comic relief? An epic fight scene? BOTH?!? Only time will tell, but with a name that epic, I have only the highest hopes for this character.

I thought Solo was pretty good! Nothing amazing, but basically just what I'd hoped: a fun movie about scoundrels betraying eachother and getting up to mischief. It's got some really enjoyable bits, and some bits that are a kind of dumb (one bit that's very dumb) and sometimes it's a little boring, but overall it's an enjoyable thing that I liked and will probably watch again. This movie shies away from the plot plot plot nature of Rogue One and hews closer to the numbered Episodes in terms of focusing on characters and writing, and I think it's much better for it. Woody Harrelson and Donald Glover steal the show, but pretty much everyone in the movie is at least likable enough to keep you engaged, and I found myself more upset about the deaths of extremely minor characters here than I did about literally anyone from Rogue One
It doesn't really feel chopped to pieces in that weird way Rogue One did, either. Like I said, it's nothing exceptional, but it doesn't feel like a movie that had two different directors and needed an acting coach for its main star. Sometimes it's a little uneven, but just in a normal mediocre, B-movie-ish kind of way, not in a 'six months of reshoots' kind of way. That workmanlike Ron Howard touch, I guess; nobody's ever going to call Ron Howard a film-making genius, but he knows how to cobble a movie together.
If you're still staunchly against the idea of this movie existing, then it's not really going to do anything to change your mind. This is just Disney cashing another billion dollar Star Wars cheque, after all. Alden Ehrenreich was never going to fill Harrison Ford's shoes, but as long as you aren't going in their as a tiresome internet bro critiquing every moment of his performance he's a totally fine scoundrel-in-the-making (too late, Ocelot: everyone is going to be a tiresome internet bro about every Star Wars movie from here on out). It's good. I liked it. But let me tell you about this really dumb bit, though:
