Solo: A Star Wars Story ★★★★

It's hard to deny that this doesn't particularly add that much to the series and its universe, but Solo: A Star Wars Story, regardless of that and its chaotic production troubles, is a surprisingly rock-solid franchise addition that manages to hearken back to the epic sci-fi saga's roots in classic adventure serials while still being a hugely enjoyable space western in its own right, with terrific effects work, thrilling action sequences, fun characters, absolutely stunning cinematography and production design, and fantastic performances throughout, especially from Alden Ehrenreich in the title role.
