Han shot first! Seriously this time!
by Thom Yee
If you asked me when I was a kid which movie hero I liked better — Indiana Jones or Han Solo — I probably would’ve answered “… was Han Solo the guy in the vest?” And if you asked me how smooth or cool a character I thought Lando Calrissian was in Empire, I don’t think there’s any way you would’ve been able to remind me of who Lando is, what he did, or how he acted in that movie (and I probably wouldn’t have been one hundred percent sure which movie you were referring to when you called it “Empire” [_______of the Sun? _______Records?]). Such was the importance of Star Wars in my childhood. Which is why I don’t feel at all precious about a Han Solo origin movie.
