    Forget Kenobi or Fett. When do we get the Porkins flick?

    No worries. Once I read your post, I saw exactly why you thought I meant the shot of Princess Leia. Fisher was the topic of discussion and I didn't make it clear I was referring to the Rebel pilots.

    Just had my mind blown. Had NO idea the actor who plays Porkins was also the “top men”
    government man in Raiders of the Lost Ark AND Lt. Eckhardt in the 1989 Batman.

    Gonna have to walk this off.

    Am I the only one hoping there is a “im not your father,” quote/moment between lando and fin.” Like Fin is talking about his relationship problems, and lando bombs that in.

    I can't believe I had never put that together. Thanks for sharing that one.

    Finally saw "Solo," which I found very entertaining. A notch below "Rogue One" for reasons others have mentioned: you know much of the plot from who makes it to the future movies. And at the movie's end, there's no resolution with one of the major new characters ... are they really going to milk Han's history for a sequel?

    If you just watch it for some cool action scenes and cool backstory "Easter Eggs" — such as how Han and Chewy meet — you'll enjoy "Solo." Just don't try to dig too deeply into the big picture — or try to workout the character's age/timeline, especially after a Phantom Menace character appears late in the film.

    I never put that together either. His scene with Jack/Joker in the alley in Batman was tremendous. Always think of it when I see a co-worker whose aspirations and attitude far exceed their talent.
    "Why, Eckhardt. You oughta think about the future."
    "You mean when you run the show? You ain't got no future, Jack."

    Are there any Star Wars fans who don't know about that character's appearance? I still haven't seen the movie, but I heard about it a while ago.
