Over Christmas I got Solo: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray as a gift. I have added it to my DVD/Home Theater page to reflect the addition. Even though it had some issues and things that could have been done better, I still enjoyed it. I also did not have any problems with Alden Ehrenreich who played Han Solo. 🙂
It was certainly one of the more polarizing episodes depending on what your expectations were. I’ll let this Honest Trailer by Screen Junkies explain it. 😃
Anyway, upon my second viewing of it (only saw it once in the theater), it was more enjoyable and caught a few things I had missed before. I still think Vice Admiral Holdo didn’t need to sacrifice herself. I mean, Star Wars has droids out the wazoo that can pilot ships.
Anyway, looking forward to the Solo and Episode IX movies later.
Just wanted to wish a Happy Easter to everyone. I think this is my first Easter holiday post and I’m not sure why. Well, I think there might be one way back in the archives before I had a blog since I did have some older Easter images. Anyway, hope everyone has a great day! 🙂
Oh, I just happened to finish watching the last day of Star Wars Celebration and can’t wait for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Trailer) to come out in December! 🙂
Also, as a follow-up to my earlier post, DVD/Blu-ray Pages Updated With HTML5 Player, I have completed adding trailers to all the movie pages where one was available to download or create. Many of them list a page created date of “Before March 19, 2003” because that’s the earliest time I could figure out based on file dates. That date was probably when I copied the images over to a new PC or hard drive and is why they were are all the same.
Over the past several days, I have been going through all my DVD/Home Theater pages and replacing the Flash player used for the trailers to a HTML5 with Flash Fall-back player. The older Flash player was by JWPlayer. Now, they do have newer HTML5 players but their free version had logos or watermarks on them which I didn’t like. The one I am using now is by MediaElement.js.
As I went through all the pages, I looked for newer MP4 versions of the trailers, most of which I did get from YouTube. I also updated the HTML code on all the pages to conform to HTML5 standards. The player seems to work fine in both Firefox 50.1.0 and Internet Explorer 9 and 11 (I finally installed IE11 into my Windows 7 system yesterday).
I’m now contemplating going through the remaining movies and adding trailers to those that don’t have one. So far I’ve done this with The 13th Warrior and 2010: The Year We Make Contact. I actually made the The 13th Warrior’s trailer from the DVD since the ones on the internet are so bad. Anyway, I guess that’s it for now. 🙂
