    Tbh, I have long ago given up on this family of stories ever achieving the height of immersive excitement that the earliest versions so freely bathed in. That Ron Howard directed was no incitement either. So I was pretty surprised. This was better than I could have imagined. And w/o Harrison Ford? I didn't think it could be done. But they did it.

    f you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.

    Solo is a good old-fashioned Star Wars adventure (unlike the travesty that was The Last Jedi). The story follows the exploits of a young Han Solo who joins up with a band of mercenaries to help them pull off a heist. Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Donald Glover, the film has a solid cast that delivers strong performances. And, the special effects and action sequences are especially well-done, making for some thrilling chases and fight scenes. Additionally, the writing does a fair job at hitting a lot of the marks of an origin story (given what is known about Han from the previous films) and at making callbacks. Considering all the behind-the-scenes turmoil, Solo proves to be a remarkably fun and entertaining film, and one of the better entries in the franchise.

    diminished when compared to The Last Jedi, unfortunately however, so did the box office numbers. Best case scenario, this thing breaks even, and even that is looking unlikely. But I did actually quite enjoy Solo. It's not perfect, there are a decent number of problems I had with both the movie itself, and with its connection to the story overall, but I actually had a really good time watching Solo (and seeing as I was probably the most sick I've ever been in my life when I watched it, that's saying something).
