I am 36 and only just now realizing this is superior to T2.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
One of the best things about having kids is that one day they're old enough to watch BABY DRIVER and you get to hear them gasp when Barry White kicks in on a reveal of Jon Hamm sipping coffee. The only thing better than seeing a great movie for the first time is watching it with someone who’s seeing it for the first time (as long as they love it, obviously — otherwise it’s torture for both parties).
This and SOLO have confirmed two things for me:
1. We’re in the age of mainstream fanfic, and
2. I don’t love that.
Watching this movie, I kept thinking about how Spielberg once wanted to direct a Bond film, but Cubby Broccoli wouldn’t let him, so instead he and George Lucas made their own version of James Bond called Indiana Jones.
I hope more directors will start making their own versions of their favorite franchises soon.
