Solo: A Star Wars Story Rating


The force is strong with this one despite zero lightsabers. Overall, this movie zips through a bit too fast early on and by the time a sweet spot of an ending can be found, it keeps going. Otherwise, the plot made sense on its own, and in the context of the Star Wars canon and some mysteries are left open because given the fact we know where Han's story goes, there's more room for Alden Ehrenreich to appear in a sequel continuing the story instead of flashback stories such as Jyn Erso's Forces of Destiny shorts and the novel Rebel Rising filling in backstory. Anyway, I had a good time at Solo

Solo: A Star Wars Story, 5/26/18, 93%, A, 5 Stars.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Rating

Spielberg's real treasure was never CGI, it was practical effects. Ok, he did great CGI work here with Ready Player One ten years after this, but still, looking at this one now, there's something really disingenuous about the visual effects here.
