  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy


    Every 'Oscar season' without fail there's one film everybody seems to love that I just don't get the praise for, and one that nobody else seems to talk about or click with that I really love; the one that gives you that special feeling it was made just for you.

    ‪I didn't really see the need for a Han Solo movie when it was first announced, and like most prequels, that wasn't gonna change a studio eventually making it- but honestly, since we've got one, I'm pretty glad it's SOLO. ‬

    ‪For all the behind the scenes catastrophes, Ron Howard has stitched together an actually interesting story that somehow has some stakes and surprises, but what really makes Solo fly is the reverent exploration of Star Wars' grimy underworld (pulling…
