You heard it here first, folks!

 

It really was a "good" move. Not, great, just good.

 

If The Last Jedi - and the Disney SW Extended Universe) wasn't such a steaming pile of rancor shit, people would have went and enjoyed it.

 

There were a couple scenes that were... meh... but I bought that Solo was a Star Wars story.

The girl who played Rose still hasn't made a statement about deleting her social media and so far I've only seen allegations of racist harassment. No photographic evidence.

 

Daisy Ridley from what I heard proactively hopped off social media because she knew it was inherently toxic.

 

Not familiar with John Boyega's problem, was that a Chinese thing?

I feel sorry for Rose's actor here.  This was her first role in a film, and in a Star Wars no less, but she comes out of it by being the middle of a (social) media shitstorm of people angry at her for her character.  

 

Apparently there was some online call for a boycott of TFA because of "forced diversity." Link.
