• Don't blame Alden Ehrenreich, but 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' never gets off the ground

    8 days ago - By Los Angeles Times

    Every so often in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” - and the last word of that title is awfully generous - a character will make brief, ominous reference to the inevitable rise of the Empire. While it remains largely off-screen here, that evil galactic monolith is quietly in the ascendant. Alliances are...

  • ‘Solo' Is Solid: Critics Call ‘Star Wars' Anthology Film a Fanboy's Dream Come True

    8 days ago - By The Wrap

    The reviews are now slowly pouring in for “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” and critics say that fans of the Lucasfilm franchise will get their money's worth.
    With 71 reviews logged, Rotten Tomatoes reports that Ron Howard's origin story for Han Solo currently has a 72 percent score. While that's not bad, it is the lowest score for a Disney-released “Star Wars” film as the franchise's previous anthology, “Rogue One,” scored 85 percent. But then again, “Revenge of the Sith” scored 79 percent in 2005, and we all know how fans reacted to that one...

    ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story' Review: A Highly Entertaining Adventure That's Not Really About Anything

    8 days ago - By Slash Film

    After a troubled production, Solo: A Star Wars Story is here. The good news: the behind-the-scenes woes weren't enough to sink the film and create a mess. The bad news: that doesn't necessarily mean everything in Solo runs as smoothly as it should.
    At the center of Solo is a question: what do we want the Star Wars Story films to be? Do we want them to be big, bold space adventures with something on their minds? Or do we want them to be amusing, escapist entertainment we can easily digest and not think too much about? If you're looking for the latter, Solo will please you. If you want a...

    Solo: A Star Wars Story is about to land in theaters after a highly-publicized and turbulent flight, and if you'll allow me to belabor the metaphor, it sounds as if director Ron Howard managed to pull this particular spaceship out of a potentially disastrous nosedive and smooth things out in a satisfying way.

    8 days ago - By The Wrap

    Disney promised a new “Star Wars” movie every year after it acquired Lucasfilm, and the saga keeps on keeping on with “Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.” But while many would call themselves “Star Wars” fans, even they will admit that the movies in the saga are by no means created equal.
    In reverse order, here is a rundown of the best and worst that these films (not counting the cartoons, the Ewok spin-off or the infamous Holiday Special) have to offer.

    8 days ago - By Screen Rant

    The first reviews are here for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Solo is the fourth Star Wars movie produced since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, as well as the second Star Wars spinoff or "Story" after Rogue One.
