I went into Solo pretty sure that I wasn’t going to enjoy it, but I had that need to see it partially out of curiosity and partially so I don’t break my streak of seeing every Star Wars movie theatrically. (Yes, that includes the original. Shut up. I’m old.) My thoughts on it might actually surprise you. It’s too bad that it will almost certainly be the first of any Star Wars movie to lose money.
