Accidentally appropriate Fathers Day weekend viewing.
“I hate you.”
I went in prepared to hate on Solo, but I can’t. Certainly, Ehrenreich is no Ford, some references a bit too on-the-nose, half of it is far too dark and there is some awful editing and continuity, but it entertained me a hell of a lot more than Infinity War.
Very nearly gave up on this early on but ended up sticking around and enjoying the rest of the ride. Maybe it was because my brain recalibrated to circumvent the Blade Runner fanfic, or that the worst of the characters had reduced screen time as the film progressed, or simply because I was happy to watch anything that wasn't The Cloverfield Paradox again.
No idea what was going on with the endless Moon Cinematic Universe (Mooniverse?) nods. I half expected Jones himself to pop up and do a wink to the camera every time Lunar Industries appeared in a shot.
