Solo is good. Go see it. It's not as great as Rogue One was (I liked that anyway) but then it's a much smaller-scale story about individuals - but it's basically a Star Wars Heist film. It's a lot of fun anyway! Kinda felt a bit like something out of Firefly, which was neat.

(and this is not a spoiler, but you should go in knowing that it's set about 10-12 years before Rogue One/A New Hope (after the prequels). There's a reveal that will confuse the heck out of you otherwise).

I went in with really low expectations and ended up liking it. Someone somewhere said it felt kind of like an Indiana Jones film, and I think that's spot on.

I watched it for a second time yesterday and actually enjoyed it even more! It's a good, solid movie.

I took my mom to see it yesterday. We both loved it (and my mom isn't a Star Wars Fan).
They got a great cast. and Donald Glover absolutely nailed Lando.

I watched it this week (finally).

I agree it was good but not great. I think the biggest problem that this type of movie has is that we already know that the 3 main characters (4 if you count the Falcon) cannot die or be significantly damaged. Takes a lot of the tension out of the movie. I thought Donald Glover deserved a Oscar nomination for Lando... He won't win, or likely even be nominated, but I thought his performance certainly deserved it.

Nice to see Kalessi with her natural hair color too! :)
