Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo or: How Han doesn’t fly alone

I like to proclaim myself The Mildest Star Wars Fan in Universe™. I feel about the franchise the same way I feel about a beer every now and then, a trip to the hairdresser or a vegan meal. There are many things I am very fanatical about but Star Wars is unfortunately not one of them. Even though I am lukewarm on the franchise, I have seen all the films (except Rogue One) and I liked them for the most part. And now I find myself in the precarious position of having to review the newest film in this never-ending, ever-expanding franchise. I am going to try and approach this review from two separate lenses: the die-hard Star Wars fan and the layman casual who may or may not care about the fact that this is a Star Wars movie (that’s me).

Secrets tour.

Secrets through the looking glass – or a dirty window

It’s a rare privilege these days when you have a metal line up like the Secrets Tour provided. Better than finding that R50 note you forgot in a pair of jeans or an old jacket when payday seems so far away. This magical line-up included I AM, OneDaySky, A Fate Like Yours, Facing the Gallows and Secrets (USA) in case you were one of the few that did not hear about it.

Wonderlus

Wonderlus: Afrikaner Graffiti

Toe ek as 20-jarige die eerste keer Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist gekyk het, was ek verbaas om te sien hoe ‘n aand ㅡ soortgelyk aan talle wat ek al beleef het ㅡ in ‘n Hollywood-fliek uitgebeeld word. Toe ek nou, amper tien jaar later, Wonderlus kyk, het ‘n soorgelyke gevoel oor my gespoel (al is die twee flieks skaars vergelykbaar). Hier’s ‘n fliek oor jong Afrikaners wat optree soos jong Afrikaners. En ek glo nie ek’t al ooit so iets gesien nie.
