DrunkWooky’s (Not Quite So) Unsolicitied, Unapologetic Review of Solo: A Star Wars Story

What’s up, CHU! 

 
It’s DrunkWooky back from his most recent Kashyykian bender, to dish out some unabashed opinion!
 
Now, one or two (but likely no more) of you probably asked yourselves “where has that DrunkWooky chap been!?” Well, priorities got re-prioritized. You see, the WookyWife has a WittleWooky in her belly! So, we’re expecting a bouncing bundle of roars around Life Day this December! 
 
Accordingly, my collecting game took a nose-dive and I am woefully out of step with the comics world in general, and barely keeping my head above water keeping up with Marvel’s Star Wars line. I hear the Marvel comics universe has rebooted twice? Sounds like a long time, but that’s only, what, like three months?
 
I couldn’t miss Solo, though! One or two of you also may have noticed that I abstained from opinion on The Last Jedi. It’s not that I didn’t have one. Everything positive or negative that could be said had already been said, by people with a much bigger platform than me, though. The world is such a mess right now that I decided not to wade into that internet opinion blood-bath. 
 
So, I was somewhat retired. Hung up my typing fingers and rested on my rather large laurels. But Anthony texted me a few nights ago and said his neighbor of his, of all people had been “dying to see what DrunkWooky thought of Solo!”
 
Who can argue with that? Give the fans what they want. 
 
Well, with the grand-standing, life updates, and administrative crap out of the way, on to the review! SPOILERS TO FOLLOW, the damn movie has been out for three and a half weeks for god’s sake. If you ain’t seen it by now, you’re renting it at Redbox.
 
As one final preemptive note, let me make my take on my own Star Wars fandom clear. I think people take this stuff too seriously. People boo-hooed after TLJ about Luke Skywalker’s newly revealed force projection ability, and Leia’s ability to live in the vacuum of space. Well, first of all, nobody heard about “Force Lightning” before Palpatine in ROTJ, and I bet every eighties teen said nothing except “Holy shit! Bad ass!” Second, why on earth are we setting arbitrary limits on an ostensibly all-powerful force? Where is the viewing public’s imagination? I think sometimes that people need to take a step back and realize they are in front of the screen for enjoyment and leave it at that. Now, am I blind to flaws? No. I’ll point them out when I see them. But, I’ll also enjoy a film for what it is-entertainment. Not a personal affront to my childhood. Feel free to complain in the comments. 
 
With that out of the way, on to my Solo Review!

One Year Later: Spec Review for 6/21/17

What up CHUllectors!?! Shawn B. the One Year Later Investigator, back with another One Year Later round up, where we take a look at some of the comics that Anthony, Mel, and Poyo specced on one year ago. Their specs turn out to be quick flips, slow burns, straight up misses, straight up winners and on and on. Sometimes they spec with their hearts out of their passion for comics. Sometimes they spec based on data. And sometimes they spec based off the word on the street. Either way, all their specs appeal to a few or many collectors whether it is due to them having similar taste in writing or art, or just an opportunity for a collector to flip a book and make money to “support their habit”. So, this is our weekly chance to look back at how some of our buys from a year ago are doing today. Continue reading
