Flim Weakly Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story


Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Film cannot be truth, because it’s made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.

Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.

So, what, in fact, is a film?

Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.

But not every film does.

“Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.

This week, I saw a Star War…



A man escapes from a place that’s bad, and turns into Han Solo. Then he meets Chewbacca, which is really, really handy, if you think about it, because he’s supposed to be his best mate, and if he didn’t meet him, then it wouldn’t happen, and neither would anything else in the other movies that this doesn’t feel like, in any way other than all the Star Wars stuff that’s in it.

There is no yellow writing at the beginning, and the girl from that Game Of Thrones is in it, but doesn’t have any dragons.


Marks out of 10…
