    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★★

    It's hard to get over the fact that Han Solo's childhood nemesis was an evil caterpillar called Lady Proxima. But once the more than heavy-handed exposition is out of the way, the newest Star Wars spin-off becomes quite enjoyable. Although the script is average at best, it features all the Star Wars characters I liked best in the original movies. The cast turns in good performances in bringing those characters back to life and the new characters are decent as well. Overall, Solo: A Star Wars Story makes for an entertaining evening, provided that you don't expect it to be perfect.

    ★★★

    A decent, but unexpectedly dark Schwarzenegger film. Unfortunately, they managed to blow the reveal big time.

    Interstellar

    ★★★

    I've seen some great films by Christopher Nolan, but this isn't one of them. It starts off as a slowly-paced and thoughtful piece on what it means to be human and how people react if they are confronted with dire situations. This part is thought-provoking and conveys the emotions of the main characters well, although it is a little too long.

    Interstellar comes apart in the last hour of the film, suddenly reverting to action scenes that are not all…

    ★★★½

    Could have done with a little less penis and butt jokes and a few more of the great Science Fiction jokes. But nevertheless a pretty entertaining movie. I guess you can always count on Pegg & Frost to deliver a film with decent laughs.
