Han Solo appreciation thread

This to me is the biggest disappointment of the Star Wars prequels: No Han (or Chewie!) Han's attitude, his swagger, and I think easily one of the best actors in any Sci Fi/Fantasy flick ever. I never liked Luke much, because, well, Han was the man! I always got the not-so-really-but-I-have-to-make-it-seem-like-I'm-reluctant hero. You know he loved the spotlight, but at the same time, he was waaay too practical.

Definitely. But it's weird, I kind of like Harrison Ford more now than then. I think he's improved with age.

I absolutely love that scene, I think it's in the first movie, where they have a huge fight with some stormtroopers and Han is trying to convince the officers on the other end of the speaker that there's no problem: "We had a weapons malfunction, but everything's fine...here...now." Eventually he shoots the speaker and says "Boring conversation anyway." I heard that that was unscripted, Harrison Ford just ad-libbed it.

He does look better now than he did back then, scatter. That "distinguised" thing, I guess. lol

I loved his whole romance thing with Leia. I forget which one it was, but it was before he was frozen (I am not a SW expert, not even in the slightest-I've seen the original three maybe 2 times each in my lifetime)and she says "I love you", he just looks at her and says, "I know." I was always like, "Damn, what a guy." LOL

Who's scruffy looking? Only the greatest space-pirate this side of Endor.

I don't like the special edition New Hope in which Greedo shoots Solo first. Looks forced and ackward. Solo was sooo much more the bad ass in when he shot Greedo first without question.

BTW, this thread needs some testosterone shot back into it

Same Naya You and I seem to have the same taste in men.
Han Solo is the reason to watch Star Wars!
I listed his stripey pants as the item I'd want from a movie in that other thread.

So do you pronounce it Han as in 'an' or Han as in 'arn'? This always bugged me in Star Wars. They never got Han and Leia's names figured out. Some say Lay-ah, others say Lee-ah.

Laff it up fuzzball!

Han Solo is by far the coooooooolest dude ever! With Indiana Jones as next runner up. Harrison, erm, Han has been my favourite since I can't remember when! I can't even count how many times I have seen the Star Wars Trilogy. Very, very many!! Star Wars was my very first movie in the theatre!!
A few years back, being the geek that I am, I had a Star Wars party. It was a lot of fun. Everyone came dressed up as a character and *coughs* the guy I was interested in at the time came as HAN! Yay baby, it was in the bag! lol We wathced all three episodes in one day. I totally recommend that! Great fun.

Now if someone wants to start an Indiana Jones appreciation thread.... I am there!

Han Solo is THE badass. You just don't get any cooler.

You may not know this, but Harrison Ford wanted Han Solo to die at the end of ROTJ, but Lucas said no.

Anyway, I think Han is one of the greatest characters from any movie out there.

sometimes i play star wars trivial pursuit. some of the question cards have little movie stills on the back. Whenever I get a Han photo, i don't put it back in the box...i leave it up for the remainder of the game. To inspire me.

He's a space hottie.



he's so much better than that dweeby Luke!!
