    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

    I thought Alden did a pretty good job despite being miscast. I thought Donald Glover did a good job as Lando even though his performance didn't feel very natural. I liked his relationship with L3. I liked Woody Harrelson even though his character felt typical. I enjoyed L3 as a character. She had more personality and felt more natural than anyone else in the movie. The entire relationship and story with Q'Ra and Dryden Voss was so boring and tame…

    Have conflicting feelings about this movie. I really enjoyed the slice of life aspect of the movie. I might enjoy it more on rewatches. I was intrigued throughout it. It explored a world I haven't seen in movies often and it was populated with interesting characters. The story was fucking terrible though.

So is his wife, but for different reasons. You could argue that Abel is a self righteous guy, but that quality also makes him admirable. He's genuinely trying to do the legal thing while everyone is trying to sway him. I loved his moral tug of war. I also love the way they portrayed New York. It felt like we were transported back to a different time.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie SUUUUUUCKED. I really gave it the benefit of the doubt, too. I tried to enjoy Age of Extinction and did to some extent. I just couldn't accept how bad this movie was. Lazy writing. No Optimus for 2/3 of it. His coming back to the good side over a dumber reason than Martha in BVS. Two lead characters with zero chemistry. This movie didn't have an ounce of charm or humor. The effects towards the end were good,…
