Movie Meltdown - Episode 440
This week we sit down to discuss the latest Star Wars standalone (sort of) movie Solo: A Star Wars Story. And all the history and universe-building that the film entails. Plus as we rejoice in the appearance of Clint Howard, we also mention… Mowgli, Skyscraper, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, all these thousands of people were murdered… for no real reason, making up for the nonsense we did way back here in this universe, it doesn’t count if they’re not going anywhere, Indiana Jones, Ray Park, film noir, The House with a Clock in Its Walls, female characters having a conversation, we’re zany… but there’s a giant shark coming after us, Han shot first, Josh Trank, robot rights, dammit Dwayne Johnson, they have to check so many boxes, the Kessel Run, the Ewok movies, celebrating Life Day, Ron Howard, if you would at least bring a bag of sand and a bus-sized shark.
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for the 2018 film Solo as well as the rest of the Star Wars franchise… and life as a whole for that matter. You have been warned.
