    The Third Man

    ★★★★½

    The leading actor: Vienna. Bombed capital of Austria, divided into four Allied occupation zones. Dark nights. Black shadows, always in fearful motion. Dull, gray daylight.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    Lando: „I hate you.“
    Han: “I know.”

    Pros
    retro look | Chewbacca | Lando Calrissian | Millennium Falcon | Enfys Nest | L3-37 | train heist | Kessel Run | score (those passages where John Powell is inspired by John Williams) | above all: the absence of Kylo Ren

    Cons
    Dryden Voss | Lady Proxima | sterility of some environments | circus of references | weak plot development | cameo (at the end of the movie) | the last shot…
