Viewing Notes

Hadn’t planned on viewing this again but given all the movies available on my second leg of my flight home I decided to spin this one since I was planning on seeing SOLO the following day back in Chicago. This is my favorite SW film and my favorite Han Solo appearance. Harrison Ford is so damn good he owns the role and really stands out among the others.

When they get tricked on Bespin and enter the dining room with Vader and Boba Fett I really want to know how that dinner went down… like what did they discuss? Did they really eat? Did Fett take off his helmet to join them? I wonder if anyone has done a short film on that one missing scene. It would be hilarious, I imagine.
