    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

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

    Solo is exactly the type of Star Wars movie I was hoping to get from these side story films. It has a different feel to it, like Rogue One did, but it’s more lighthearted, with less focus on the Empire—lives are at risk, but the stakes aren’t as high as saving the galaxy.

    Unfortunately it’s bogged down by constant “hey get it” origin stories of details that didn’t need origin stories. None of them are sold very well. We learn…
