Solo: A Star Wars Story was a surprisingly good movie, given that we didn’t care for the most recent two releases in the Star Wars Universe.
Lessons Learned from Solo: A Star Wars Story:
When you see an opportunity, take it.
- Signing up for the Imperial Order; meeting Beckett and joining him
Anti-lesson: Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.
Real lesson: Don’t have expectations, plan as much as you can and improvise when necessary.
- The anti-lesson was Becket’s point of view. Sky doesn’t prescribe to that as it’s a negative, unfriendly way to go through life.
Think outside the box for solutions to your problems.
- Making it through the Kessel Run in record time.
Know how you’re going to win before you play.
- Gambling between Han and Lando. Lando has a “card up his sleeve” but it ends up back-firing on him late in the movie.
Think a few moves ahead of your opponent.
- Becket’s teaching Han, and we can learn from Becket as well
Assume people will let you down. Understand that heading into anything.
- Becket (played by Woody Harrelson) betraying Han at the end
