    Considering Ford's historical indifference towards Star Wars (which admittedly may be an unfair take when compared to Mark Hamill's torch-carrying), that was a really nice video. Not sure how much acting was involved, but I'll take it. I always get nervous when he opens his mouth (I get strangely embarrassed for people when they act like jerks).

    Nope, sorry Bryan. They invited him to set specifically to throw him under the bus after the movie comes out. That logic is 100% sound and level-headed. It's all an elaborate conspiracy. Also, Hoth is flat. The Death Star was an inside job. There was a second shooter in the Death Star throne room.
    Why am I not surprised you think that,

    Thanks, @Jaitea, that was hilarious. lol

    Ford gave his honest answer first. Then nearly said he'd be watching it as...as...as...I think he wanted to say as "an obligation". And then towed the company line by saying he'd watch it as a fan. Bwahahaha

    God, he's just so uncomfortable talking about the character. Notice how he avoided answering the question about how he felt about Han's death, by doing a strange Monty Python imitation from their Bring Out Your Dead sketch. Wow. Bizarre.

    I'm sure Harrison kept his lunch with Alden as brief as possible, ordering just soup. And he kept his head down, staring into his bowl of soup, slurping away spoonful after spoonful, tilting his head up towards Alden, just a few degrees, a handful of times, and only long enough to mumble in response to Alden's questions, "Sure.", "You'll be fine.", "Just make it your own.", "I never really thought about that.", "I don't remember.", and "Just watch the movies, kid, it's all in there.".

    As Alden stares at Harrison, disappointed in his gloomy reticence, a smile begins to come over Alden's face, as Harrison finally lifts his head fully up away from his half empty soup bowl--Alden sure now that Harrison's eaten something he'll loosen up and provide keen insights into the character! But Harrison's head turns from side to side, as he scans the diner, yelling out, "CHECK!".

    Ford is not interested in the history of movies/cinema. Agents are sending script, he finds one that interest him and does it. That's it, that's all. All he wants to do is fly and putter around his ranch with the horses

    You mean he's not interested in telling us serfs what to do, what to buy, and how to live? He is avoiding his extremely important role for the most intelligent of us all, actors? The nerve of that man!



    I think in this movie's case, Lucas stopped by because he's been friends with Ron Howard for 45 years, at least. I wouldn't be surprised if any SW set would welcome his visit just because he's the creator of it all. I would hope that they would be asking him questions like "Would Luke do something like this?" you know, the stuff Rian Johnson didn't ask...

    I read in a few spots where Ford's advice to the new guy was "Get out while ya can" 😂😂 sounds like legit Ford to me!

    And this is where SOLO will be buried when the movie flops. (Although, I'm sure it will do fine.)

    You know, it just struck me that if TLJ was "successful" on the grounds of "It doesn't matter if it felt like Star Wars; it amused me" (even by some Star Wars fans), then I have to believe that by that measure, SOLO could have a huge potential upside.

    I like that Falcon, that might be under the tree in Jan. for my son. He doesn’t have one and is starting to get into the bigger toys like the R1 Walker.

    In an attempt to re-rail things after I derailed them (sorry)... I found this image to demonstrate was saying about the Y-Wing in TCW vs the OT.

    Like fenders on a car-- I recall Lucas giving the direction in ANH that the Y-wings should be like hot rods missing their hoods-- that Rebel engineers make modifications and repairs so often, they never bothered putting the body panels back on. I don't think TCW design was thought of back then-- but that was the genesis of how they decided to portray the ship.

    It makes sense to me that Han would basically do the same thing given all the tweaks and hot-wiring he does to the Falcon.

    The DL-44 that comes with the Black Series Han has the TFA dial where the mystery disk would have been.
    I have to admit that I will probably get the figure and swap out the head with the Harrison Ford AHN.

    It was well over a year and a half ago and I have no idea what thread it was. I don't need to go searching for it when every other post you make is essentially the same thing. Just scroll up on this page.
    You're a very confused person. I only introduced SWIQ to the RPF less than 9 months ago. You shouldn't make accusations if you can't get your facts straight. And if you can't provide evidence.
