    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    Has its moments but spends way too much time on fan service and its connections to the other films rather than devoting more time to its own, original story. It is cool to see things like Han meeting Chewbacca & flying the falcon for the first time, but it was almost like the movie was going through a checklist of Han's backstory to confirm what we already know about him, and in turn it was hard to get invested in the…
