Solo: A Star Wars Story ★★★★

I didn't expect to like this at all, had no enthusiasm for it, didn't see it until now and that was a mistake because it's easily the most consistent and enjoyable of the Disney films (*the Luke content in TLJ is the highlight, but this is a stronger film overall). Fan service, sure, but fan service that actually understands the original trilogy much better than the others. The tone and visuals are spot on with none of the flashy bullshit designed to sell toys or future amusement park attractions. I'm going to call Ron Howard to tell him he did just fine and you all have just been playing too many video games to appreciate a sturdy popcorn film.
