Solo: A Star Wars Story ★★★½

Like takes based on a movie's budget, takes based on behind-the-scenes drama age very poorly, because in a very short time, no one will care how much a movie cost, or who the studio replaced with who halfway into the movie. And I think a fair amount of the resentment towards this film was based on studio drama, and possibly overly elevated expectations of what this movie was trying to be. Of course it could have been more, and in many ways is fan service color by numbers. But it's also a perfectly enjoyable goofy space western heist film. I liked all the dumb callbacks, and preposterous conceits.
