    Because he was being reckless with his plans.

    "I've dealt with plenty of trigger happy flyboys like you. You are impulsive. Dangerous. And the last thing we need right now."
    "You have bet the survival of the Resistance on bad odds and put us all at risk? "

    And sure enough, as soon as Poe learns the plan, he recklessly leaks it...

    And she also states their mission...

    "There are four hundred of us on three ships. We're the very last of the Resistance but we're not alone. In every corner of the galaxy the downtrodden and oppressed know our symbol and they put their hope in it. We are the spark that will ignite the fire that will restore the Republic. That spark, this Resistance, must survive. That is our mission. Now, to your stations. And may the Force be with us."

    By the end of the film, Poe learns to see the bigger picture...
    He becomes less impulsive and reckless, knows when to disengage, and he comes up with the plan of escape...
    This is Poe's arc...


    It takes the "Never Tell Me The Odds" convention and slaps it in the face...

    I'm sure you understand what this entire "arc" is a metaphor for and why it couldn't be, say Admiral Ackbar in Holdo's spot.

    I grew up a star wars kid, watching the original films a million times as most of us did. I just don't get how seriously people are about some of this stuff.

    Keep your expectations reasonable and everything released after the prequels has ranged from decent to quite good.
    I'll see Solo eventually. My thing is just that it's a character that I love because of Harrison, not because of the character so seeing someone else play him didn't get me excited. I got a Young Indy vibe leading up to the movie and that definitely didn't help.

    I'm waiting for it to pop up on Netflix at this point, as it should be there in a few months.

    On non-movie stuff, I got a gaming PC a few months ago (always had Macs at home before this) and started to play The Old Republic. Expected to not like it, but it has ended up being my favorite Star Wars stuff in a long time. The fact that the story can be played like a single player game was something I didn't realize and love. That era would be wonderful to explore for the movies, to get out of the same period of time they've been setting all the films in.

    I think Solo got a bit of unwarranted shit, guessing the TLJ backlash was part of it. It isn't great but a perfectly fine action adventure. I didn't like the unnecessary bits Nash Diesel mentioned earlier (I guess we can't have SW without it anymore though) and while Alden Ehrenreich does a fine job he comes across like someone nice and well mannered pretending to be laid back and rough around the edges, while Harrison Ford just is.

    I will never watch TLJ again but I will buy the Solo blu-Ray eventually.

    Well, it's still Star Wars and a powerful brand but still down 56% from TFA Blu-Ray sales. Of course TFA was the first proper SW movie in what? 12 years so there will naturally be more buzz around it. There was a huge drop off in box from TPM to AoTC ($474 mil > $310 mil) as well, just like it was from TFA to TLJ ($936 mil > $620). The drop of over $300 million between TFA and TLJ is massive even though they made very similar opening weekend box office ($247 mil > $220 mil).

    One reason is probably that many fans just like me watched TFA several times (I saw it three times in the cinema) but only watched TLJ once.

    It seems like JJ is doing his best to right the wrongs of Ruin and TLJ. The leaks from Episode 9 sound super cool.

    Watched the first few episodes of Resistance. It is pretty fun so far, and not terribly childish as people feared.

    They could go back in time and make TLJ never happen.

    Elijah Wood is voicing a character who looks to be a main rival to the main guy. Really intrigued by where Resistance goes.

    Lando really got a big loud cheer outta me. I’m not sold on the name, but that teaser really tickled my pickle.

    A little part of me is concerned they’ll go a little fan boy on this, and the trailer does nothing to suggest that’s not the case. That said, Solo aside, they’ve absolutely smashed every film since going back to the franchise, so in Disney I trust.
