As Solo hits cinemas, we're already back into Star Wars fever mode. Beforehand, people undoubtedly re-watched and looked back on all the old movies. For the most part, a Star Wars marathon is great fun, but there's a surprising amount of rubbish you have to get through to get to the good stuff.
Star Wars is generally awesome and the films are usually strong in terms of quality. That's impressive as Hollywood franchises go, but when watching through them, a lot of bad creative choices, annoying scenes and jarring characters do unfortunately leap out and distract from otherwise terrific viewings.
These mistakes will definitely have you reaching for the fast-forward button. As fun as being a Star Wars fan is, there's a lot of stuff you have to put up with to fully enjoy the films.
Unfortunately, Solo: A Star Wars Story has proven to be a huge disappointment and the franchise has now delivered its first bad film (aside from that Clone Wars movie no-one remembers). As the series hits this new low, it's time to look back at all the previous times Star Wars made you want to chuck your remote at the TV...
