Solo: A Star Wars Story ★★★★

"I have a very good feeling about this."

Initial thoughts: Really liked it. Alden Ehrenreich is way better than I expected as Han, and the rest of the cast were great as well. Ron Howard's direction is solid; ditto with John Powell's music; the action set pieces are all very cool (the main one in particular); and some of the plot beats were surprisingly unpredictable. Had some pacing issues here and there, and I wasn't initially a fan of the female droid, but on the whole, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Would recommend.
