Finally saw this. We can no longer go to the theatre to see movies due to my son's health issues. Was eager to see what all the fuss was about and have to say, I loved every bit of Solo.

In fact, I'd say it ranks third for me, after SW and Empire.

I agree Bob - I thought it was an excellent story and had a great grasp of the characters.  I predict this will develop into a sleeper/long term favorite when people see it on TV.

Solo is a fun movie that actually felt like SW. The people who skipped it in the theater really missed out on a solid film.

At some point are we going to learn Lobot and Lando had a thing going on?

Down-Lobot?

I was glad I saw it on the big screen. Good action flick, even had a "car" chase.
If they had excluded some references it would have been that much better. I'll be watching it again soon.

Good movie. I even liked Woody Harrelson. I don't know
why it got a low score on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is kinda fun.  Someone used AI deep-learning tech (aka "deepfake") to install Harrison Ford's face into "Solo."


Interesting property of these sorts of things, is they are still slaved to the facial expressions of the person they are being installed on.  Since their personality is different than the original, it's sort of like being able to tell adult twins apart because their personalities have diverged.

Finally saw this. Mostly liked it! Kinda felt like the Star Wars equivalent to mixing up a bunch of sodas at Burger King and winding up with something tasty, but a weird shade of brown.

Could have dealt with a few fewer callbacks and coincidences.
