EH man I hear you. Maybe I'm just getting old too but I can relate to your opinion on SW. It's not the dark, edgy, gory, deep space scifi we all wanted. Disney is just following their protocols.
I watched solo yesterday. All I can say is the effects are undeniably well done. THe acting was soulless and the characters too. You can see how desperate the devs were by scrounging up what ever they could from the original sequals just to make it feel nonstrategic for the old fans (forget being original). ANother thing I could not stand was all the subtle humor jokes in every fucking scene, aukward silences, perverted puns (lando fucks robots apparently). It was insufferable, but I had a good time with my family, they enjoyed it.
